Question and Answers

Q:

My refrigerator is warm and I notice that my freezer is working what can it be?

A:

I can understand your alarm over your refrigerator being warm.  I would suggest dry ice for a quick and effective preservative. This kind of an issue is usually the result of some form of blockage hindering air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator.   I have located a link that will discuss your situation in more detail.

the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction. I hope this information will be helpful and have a nice day.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com. I'm sorry to hearing about the warming refrigerator, I know how frustrating and alarming that can be, especially if it's full of food.

Since the freezer is working fine and just the refrigerator side is warming, and with the mention of ice accumulation within the freezer; it sounds like your freezer is experiencing a defrosting issue which consequently is blocking the air vent used to circulate cold air into the refrigerator. The light within the freezer was just a coincidence and has nothing to do with the refrigerator warming.

For your convenience, I have included links to the defrost components for this model, without running a voltmeter testing, we won't know for sure which one needs to be replaced.

Defrost Thermostat for model 596.76262700

Defrost Heater for model 596.76262700

Defrost Control for model 596.76262700

Outside of the defrost components, if you don't see an over abundance of ice on the freezer liner, I would suspect an evaporative fan motor issue, which actually circulates the cold air into the refrigerator. However, due to the point of ice accumulation you see, it sounds like the defrost issue is more feasible.

If you would feel more confident having a Sears Home Service Technician assist you with the diagnosis/repair of the unit, click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

If you have any further questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.
