A:

Thank you for this question. Having a refrigerator that is not cooling is very concerning. The problem it seems your refrigerator is having is the thermistor that controls the temperature in the fresh food section. It would seem that the evaporator fan is operating. The operation of your refrigerator is such that to save energy if the fresh food door is left open the compressor will not come on. The switch sends a feedback signal to the control board if the doors are open. That is why the compressor will not come on when you hold the door open. The fresh food section is cooled using the thermistor as the temperature sensor and the air damper lets the cool air into the fresh food section. The damper uses built-in switches to tell the control board if the damper is open or closed. To really find out what is the problem, some troubleshooting needs to be done. The things that need checked are the fresh food thermistor, the damper and the damper switches and the control board. The checks will require the use of a volt/ohm meter. If you have a meter and are confident in your technical abilities I will give you the checks to make (see Picture for reference). The first thing is to arrange to store the food while the fresh food section is taken apart. Remove the shelves and the light section from the roof. The water filter and the entire roof assembly will come out. On the rear wall, after the roof is out you will see the air baffle behind the grill. As you can see the amount of dis-assembly is great and the checks need to be made using live voltage.

If you do not wish to troubleshoot the refrigerator yourself, but would like a Sears Service Professional troubleshoot it follow this link: Sears Home Services .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this thread.
