Question and Answers

Q:

Bottom freezer not cold 59669872990 Kenmore Bottom freezer refrigerator

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your Refrigerator is not getting cold. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you. 


You are able to check the thermostat for continuity to see if that is your issue. If you have to tap the thermostat then that would tell me you would need to replace it. 

Using an OHMs meter the defrost thermostat should read open 55 degrees and closed 20 degrees.

Let me know if this helps.

Replacing a compressor requires something to recover the refrigerant in. You would need a torch to solder the refrigeration lines and some gauges to install the new refrigerant with.

I recommend you get a technician to replace the compressor or replace the refrigerator.

A:

The information you received is correct for the parts information. The problem you are having is air flow related. By this I mean, not enough air is being blown into the refrigerator section. The most likely reason will be the control damper # R0161050 is not opening properly. It could also be due to the evaporator motor not running or running to slow or if the evaporator coil is iced up. In this case, you would notice a heavy frost on the back panel in the freezer, which could be due to a failed bi-metal. However, it's not likely to be either of these problems, with a negative 1 temperature in the freezer. If there is not much air blowing from the diffuser, the fan seems to be running ok and there is no frost on the back panel, the damper will need to be replaced. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . If you would like more assistance, additional details will be needed.

A:

Based on the description listed, this will be a defrost problem. A good check will be, the next time you start to notice the frost building, turn the timer knob slowly until the unit quits. The timer is located behind the front grill at the bottom. After a few minutes you should be able to hear some popping and hissing inside the freezer. This would indicate the element is on and the ice is melting and dripping on it. If you do hear this, the timer # R0131577 will need to be replaced. If nothing happens, some voltage and resistance checks will need to be made. A technician may be needed to make these checks. The timer is available at the link listed below. I hope this will help you.
