Once I emptied the freezer and turned the ice maker off, both the refrigerator and freezer went back to normal temperatures. In the owner's manual, I read over all of the options for "if the food temperature is too warm", and by process of elimination it is either the condenser coils are dirty or the rear air grille is blocked. Where are the condenser coils located?

I understand your concern when the refrigerator does not maintain temperature. This does sound like it may be associated with the compressor.  Some of these models have a start assist kit on the compressor. It may also be the compressor itself is malfunctioning.  The compressor should be checked and this is something a technician should do. You can schedule a Sears technician at Sears Home Services. I would recommend, unplugging the refrigerator, making sure the coils and motor are clean. Then plug back in and see if the compressor kicks on without the buzzing. For further information or assistance, please reply back with the complete model number.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

We bought this fridge from a friend and they just recently replaced the compressor, so I don't think its that. I will clean the coils and motor and then see what happens, thanks for your help. The model number is 596.76572600.

I cleaned the coils and the fridge started working again just fine. However, this morning I was having the same problems...the buzzing noise and the temperature dropped. I cleaned the coils again and unplugged and rep lugged the fridge in and still no solution. Where is the motor located at so I can clean that too? Or do you think it could be the compressor? In the manual, it says between the buzzing/humming/vibrating noise, the fridge is either not level (which I checked and it is), ice maker is on without water connection (which its off and has a water connection), or the compressor makes this noise while operating which is normal. However, I'm thinking since the temp is going down and the noise is recurring, I would assume it is the compressor, what do you think? Also, where is the compressor located at so I can use the start assist kit as mentioned above. Thank you!

Thank you for the reply. Since this issue does continue to reoccur, I do recommend having a technician make the necessary checks. Since the compressor was replaced, this may be a problem with the overload relay and capacitor. See key #10 and #11 in the compressor image at the link below. It may also be Key #3, condenser fan motor. You can see these at the lower back of the cabinet. Remember to always unplug refrigerator before attempting any service or repairs.

Okay, I was informed that it was the capacitor that has been replaced by the previous owners, so now i'm assuming it might be the compressor. Would you just recommend a technician to come out and check it?

Hi Kasey. Yes, I do recommend having a technician make checks since a check of the sealed system should be done as well as the compressor. The technician can provide the cost of repair which will help with the decision if repair or replacement is best. The link to Sears Home Services below can help with scheduling.

Thank you for your question. I know it's frustrating when the refrigerator stops cooling. If the controls are not responding and if the compressor is not running, the most likely problem will be with the main control board # 12782036SP. Sometimes resetting the board will correct this type of problem. To reset the board, disconnect the power for 30 seconds and then reconnect it. If the same problem still exists, the board will probably need to be replaced but this is a very expensive board and I would recommend having a technician check this first. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services. I hope this will help you.
