I can understand your concern about the refrigerator running a lot. The information you have received from Alina is good but it does not pertain to this problem. The most common reason for this type of problem is poor air flow. First check the back panel in the freezer for a thick frost accumulation. If you see this happening, it will indicate there is a problem with the defrost system. As the frost gets thicker, the air flow to the fridge section will be reduced. In this case, you can open the freezer door and turn the unit off for several hours to allow time for it to defrost. When the frost has all thawed, it will cool ok again until the frost builds back up. This will take a few days and allow time to have it checked.

Another possibility will be if the damper inside the air diffuser fails. This is a very common problem. In this case, the control damper # 67003903 will need to be replaced. The damper is available at SearsPartsDirect .

Another common problem could be with the return air vent freezing closed. A good check for this will be to feel the air flow coming out of the damper. Now open the freezer door and if the air flow increases, it indicates the vent is frozen or blocked. In this case, you will again need to shut the unit off to allow it time to defrost the vent. To check for a blockage, remove the crisper and check the vent in the bottom corner. If something is on top of it, this will be the problem. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
