Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my refrigerator run?

A:

This type of problem is usually associated with the defrost control board but it could also be a thermostat problem. To reset the defrost board, unplug the unit for a few seconds and reconnect it. If the unit starts running, the defrost board # 61005988 will need to be replaced. If it still won't run, the thermostat could be the problem. First try turning the thermostat all the way off and back on or tap on it a couple of times. If the unit starts, the thermostat # 61005516 will need to be replaced. Both of these parts are available at SearsPartsDirect . If it still won't run, some voltage checks will need to be made and a technician may be needed. I'm listing a site you can check, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details.
