Question and Answers

Q:

Bottom Freezer not cold enough 596.69142992

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Refrigerator, Model: 25596.69142992. From reviewing the details on your model, based on what you have provided, the problem is with the refrigerator temperature sensor. The sensor controls the damper located between the freezer and the fresh food section. Your refrigerator has a test function built into the main control board. Since there is not an error code showing on the control display the main board can be tested. This would require you getting access to the Main control board located on the rear of the refrigerator. From the main control board the fan motor could be forced into operation, by pressing the test button on the board. This allows you to verify the air flow to the fresh food section. Also from the Main control board if you feel comfortable working with and around voltage, you could test the sensor to the fresh food section.To check the sensor you would need the unit unplugged from the wall and from the connector ohm the two white wires. Set the meter for 50k or higher. The reading you would look for is 6k to 7k ohms.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the refrigerator to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Hello, My model has no control display, nor can I locate a main control board to test. Could the problem be the temperature control thermostat? Thank you.

A:

I'm sorry you are having this problem. The information you have received from Joseph is good but it does not pertain to this model. If there is not an accumulation of frost on the back freezer panel, the most likely problem will be with the damper control # R0161050. This is a thermostatically controlled damper and if it doesn't operate properly, it will not allow proper air flow to the fridge section. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.
