Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance not working.

By thermostat, you must mean the defrost thermostat, so yes from the control board you can check it.  And you can force the refrigerator to defrost to check it also.   The orange wire at the board when measured using a multimeter, to the white wire when the unit is in forced defrost the voltage there should be 120 volts AC

NOTE:  Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service.

Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Refrigerator's cooling mechanisms need to be constant to protect our food. When one malfunctions, you want to get it fixed fast. I located a similar question and expert post that may help.

I'm sorry you are having this problem. If the buzzing sound you hear is coming from the bottom of the unit, the information you have received will be correct. Also check the condenser coils to make sure they are not stopped up and the motor next to the compressor. If it does not run, the compressor will overheat and cause this problem. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Where does the defrost timer go on my Kenmore model 596.75239401 refrigerator?

A:

The defrost timer on this model is built into the control board (# 5 in picture). The board # 12868513 would need to be replaced. To access the board, you will need to first disconnect power to the unit. Now remove the screw in the cover and slide the cover to the rear to release the holding tabs. Now insert a screwdriver in the front 2 slots of the housing to release some tabs and the control housing will drop down (see picture). The board can now be replaced. If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details.

Safety Notice: Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
