Question and Answers

Q:

model 59679272993 refrigerator not cooling, freezer working

A:

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your refrigerator model 596.79272993; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. If the freezer is working and freezing correctly and has no frost build-up on the evaporator and back panel then either the freezer fan is not working or the damper in the fresh food section is not opening to allow air into that compartment. These are the two things to check, the damper should be open with fresh food control set to cool. The freezer fan should be running when the compressor runs, as does the condenser fan located in the bottom back. I hope this helps, if you need additional help reply with more details and I will be happy to respond.  If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services. Ron H.

Thanks so much for the response. I'd like to replace the evaporator fan myself. Is it behind the freezer back panel? Or does it require special tools/knowledge? Best, Jim

Hi Jim502, changing the evaporator fan motor is not extremely difficult but does require some basic knowledge of electrical wiring and some mechanical ability. If you are sure the motor is bad and needs replacing here is a link to the motor. Evaporator motor Ron H.

Q:

Refrigerator door

A:

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the refrigerator door. Adjusting doors can be a little tricky sometimes. If the door is sagging, check to see if the shim or shims have been replaced if it had any. Sometimes the hinges can also be adjusted slightly by loosening the screws, make the adjustment and then retighten the screws. If the door is bowed in a certain section, many times it can be bowed back in place. This can be a challenge sometimes. In some cases, the screws around the door, under the gasket will need to be loosened but not removed to adjust the door and then retighten the screws to hold the door in place. I hope this helps you. If you would like to have a technician make this adjustment, I'm listing a site you can access, to schedule a tech to come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread with any additional details and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thanks for the inquiry about your refrigerator model 59679272993, I will be glad to assist you. The area between the fresh food section and the freezer section where the door gaskets seal is heated to prevent sweating. This is called a mullion heater that is directly connected to a hot gas line from the condenser unit.  This heater line will vary in temperatures depending on the run time of the compressor. If there is a lot of use the heater will be warmer, if doors are opened often it will be warmer. And if a heavy food load is added the unit runs longer to meet cooling demands and the heater will be warmer. If the condensing coils needs cleaning it will be warmer. Any thing that makes the compressor run more will create more heat on the mullion. This is normal; if the mullion actually gets hot you should check the freezer temperatures and check the condenser coils (for dust and lint) and condenser fan motor( it should be running anytime the compressor runs) I hope this helps, if you need additional assistance please reply with more details and I will be happy to respond. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.Ron H.
