Thank you for your question Dave. I am so sorry to hear the refrigerator section is only cooling to about 50 degrees. I can understand your concern as that is too warm to store food safely. You are correct on both points. There is an air vent that need to be kept clear and there is a fan that moves the air from the freezer to the refrigerator side. Before we discuss those, I do want to make sure the refrigerator hasn't been moved recently or the place where it is set up isn't affected by changes in temperature. For example, if the refrigerator is in the garage, as the outside temperture gets warmer, it will take more to cool the refrigerator. The model number you provided is a little short. After the 795.6937 there should be 4 more numbers. You will find the complete model number on the inside of the refrigerator section, either on the side wall or up on the ceiling. There were several models that started with 795.6937, but it looks like the fan we are talking about is the same on all of them. I have included a link to the parts diagram so you can see where the it is located.

Parts diagrams for Model 795.69372900 (I just picked the first one that came up).

On the Freezer Parts diagram, you will find the vent in the freezer section is at the base of key 284A (called the Fan Grille Cover). In that same diagram key 404A is the fan motor and 329A is the fan blade. That is what circulates the air. Where the air comes into the refrigerator section is on the ceiling behind the control assembly. To see it in the diagram, look at key number 120A on the Case Parts page. Be sure both areas are not blocked. Once you have cleared the vent be sure to let the refrigerator run a least 12 hours before checking the temperture. It will take several hours for the refrigerator to cool even a few degrees.  Check and see that the motor turns and that the blade isn't stuck. If these steps do not corrected the problem, there are other issues we can look at. Please respond back to this thread and I will be happy to do further research for you.

The actual model number is 795.69292.901, Serial Number is 909MRRH09254 Manufacture Date is 2009.09 The refrigerator has not been moved since purchase and is in the kitchen. I have been monitoring the temperature and there is not change. I do not beleive the fan in the freezer is running, have not heard it during several checks.

Thank you for responding back Dave. It sounds like you have narrowed down the problem. If you want to test the fan before you replace it, I have included the steps for you. First be sure to either unplug the refrigertor or turn off the circuit breaker that powers it.

To prevent food from defrosting, I recommend you put your freezer items in a cooler on ice while you are working on the fridge. The fan will be on the back wall of the freezer section. With the freezer section empty you can remove the panel that covers the fan. Next you will need to remove the fan housing. Once you have the fan uncovered, there will be 3 wires attached to it. I suggest drawing yourself a schematic so you will be able to reattach them to the refrigerator without confusion. Use needle-nose pliers to pull the connectors from the fan terminals. Don't pull on the wires directly. I would check the wire connectors and the fan's terminals for any sign of wear. Once you have the fan motor out, try spinning the fan blade to make sure it hasn't frozen up.

You will want to set your multitester to read ohms. (Normally X1 or RX1 depending the brand.)
Touch one probe to one of the fan's terminals. Touch the other probe to the other terminal. You should get a zero reading. If the test reads anything other than zero, replace the fan. If it reads zero and the fan blade moves freely, the evaporator fan is not the issue.

In case it is the fan, I have included the link for you to order that.

I also included the fan blade. If it is not spinning freely, you will want to replace that also.

I hope this resolves the issues you are having with the refrigerator. If I can be of further assistance please respond back to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears Dave, we appreciate you as our valued customer.

While I have the fan unplugged I may as well test the input voltage. What voltage is the fan? Also curious shouldn't I be reading resistance across the windings of the motor?

Thank you for your question Dave. I think it is an excellent idea to check the voltage. I show that when the motor is off, the output should be 2 VCD or less and when it is on, the output should be between 10-14 VCD. Let me know if I can assist you with anything else. Thanks again for being a Sears valued customer and have a great day!

OK I have checked the voltage to the fan. The connector has three wires. Red, Purple and Ground. Red to Ground is 15 volts DC, Purple to Ground is 5 volts DC. I have also checked the resistance in the fan. Red to Ground .6 M ohms, Purple to ground 1.2 M ohms. According to the above information input voltage looks fine but the motor resistance is failing. I am assuming at this point I need a new motor. The fan is spinning freely so the motor is not locked up.

Thank you for responding back Dave. You are correct. If the resistance is failing, the fan needs to be replaced. I have included the link to order the part.

Thank you for your question. It's nice to know the size of your refrigerator. This is a 22 cubic foot model. Unfortunately, the dimensions for this older model are no longer listed. If you have a tape measure, you can measure the unit to get the dimensions. I'm listing the dimensions for a newer 22 cubic foot side by side that may be close to yours.

  • Depth w/ Handle (in.): 34.25
  • Depth w/Door Open 90 Degrees (In.): 50
  • Depth w/o Handle (in.): 31.75
  • Height to Top of Case (in.): 68.25
  • Height to Top of Hinge (in.): 69.37
  • Width w/ Door Closed (In.): 32.62
  • Width w/Door Open 90 Degrees (In.): 37.2

I hope this helps you.

Thank you for your question. I know it's irritating to have to manually defrost the coil. First check to see if there is an error code in the display. If there is no code, check to see if the evaporator motor stops running. If it stops running the coils will frost up. If the motor is ok, it will indicate a problem with the defrost system. A good check for this will be to access the main board behind the unit. When the cover is removed and you can see the board, look for a small button in the center of it. Now very carefully (there is voltage present in the board) press this button and all the displays should light. Press the button again and the motors should stop running and the heat element should come on. If the element does come on, the main board # EBR41531306 will need to be replaced. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . If it does not come on, some voltage and resistance checks will need to be made. If you have a meter and would like to check it yourself, please reply to this thread with any additional details and I will be glad to assist you further. I hope this will help you.

Thanks, Scott. Next time the temperature rises to unacceptable levels I will try the process. Should it appear that I need parts, I will let you know and confirm the issues. I do have an experienced young man who comes to the lake on weekends. I think I can get him to do the checks and then order and install any necessary parts. Again, my thanks. Warren
