Question and Answers

Q:

i have a a fridge model 596.52679201 that stopped cooling.

A:

Having the one appliance that keeps our food fresh to stop working properly can be really frustrating. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, a suggestion I have is to visit Sears Home Services website to set service with a Sears technician so they can have this appliance working fast. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!

Replacing the compressor is not a do-it-yourself job.

Replacing the relay can be and as you say it might be worth a shot.

You don't mention if you hear a click from the compressor when the overload trips. Are you sure you have a 120 volts to the compressor?

If you have a meter and are comfortable using it then with caution you could check voltage to the compressor.

You could also check resistance on the three terminals of the compressor.

These checks might help say you the $30 dollars.

thx fred! the run relay and cap are now one part. as such i replaced both easily after the fridge had been unplugged for a few days. unfortunately, the relay clicks, the compressors buzzes as if it's trying to start up and then shuts down. i'm getting lukewarm air in the fridge at best after ~an hour of waiting. :-( seems like i might as well buy a new fridge at the price of an $700 compressor repair? sigh! any other suggestions???

I would agree replacement will be a much better idea than replacing the compressor.

A:

as it turns out the run relay cap seems to have done the trick after all. i left the fridge running the rest of the day and after my tenants got back that evening, there was a batch of ice and a cold fridge. it's been 4 days now and no complaints so far... (fingers crossed). fred, how long is reasonable to wait for an empty fridge like this to cool? also, after the relay kicks, what's the best way to verify that the compressor is running? all i could hear was the cooling fan running when i was trying to verify the compressor. thanks in adv!

A:

The best way to verify the compressor is running is with an amp meter. It takes about 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach operating temperatures.

Fred, another update to the saga... the fridge with the new run-relay-cap, quit again last night. We have had some very severe lightning storms and the whole area's infrastructure, roadways, sidewalks, streetlights etc is being redone. I've got a 90-day on the relay-cap and planning on another replacement. Given what we know, however is there anything else to check before I do this again? What are the readings I should expect on the compressor on my amp meter? Which contacts should I be checking? Is there anything else to verify??? Thanks again!

A:

At start up the compressore may draw 8-12 amps but while running it should only draw about 2 1/2-to 4 amps. Check the amp draw at start up and while it's running. You can check it again in a couple or hours and see if it has increased. Sometimes when a compressor is going bad the amp draw may increase over time.

A:

Error codes are very confusing and most people don't understand what they mean. After doing some research I found a question in Manage My Life that was similar to the one you asked. This answer from the expert will give you detailed information on what the error code stands for. I attached the link below, I hope this helps!!!!!!! http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/132020-what-would-cause-error-code-f11-on-my-kenmore-washing-machine

A:

The F11 error code indicates a communication problem between the 2 control boards.

At one time we had an issue with Cold Solder joints on the Machine Control Board due to the manufacturing process. On the older ones you could wiggle the connectors DLS or MS and cause the Codes to come up, and sometimes all you have to do is put your meter probes in the connectors and that might create the code or cause it to work. Sometimes the control had to heat up a little from being used before the failure was evident. If either of these occurs you can replace the control board due to this "known issue" but only for these reasons unless voltage checks tell you the control is bad. The Control Board Manufacturing issue was fixed in production in the 4TH Qtr of 2005; Serial #CSS48.

I am sending you a link that addresses this exact symptom. Please click on the link below. Remember to disconnect power before attempting access.

What would cause error code F11 on my Kenmore washing machine?
