Question and Answers

Q:

My Kenmoore Cold Spot #10656536400 is not keeping anything cold on the fridge side despite the highest setting or anything frozen on the freezer side.

A:

I suspect the unit has failed to defrost and air is not circulating through the refrigerator or freezer. To see if this is the case remove the basket and lower shelf from the freezer. Look at the evaporator cover on the rear wall of the freezer. If the grill is frosted over, the unit needs defrosting.

You can defrost the evaporator and make the refrigerator and freezer work for 5-6 days if you want. Begin by unplugging the refrigerator from the wall.

If there is frost remove the food from the freezer. Remove the icemaker by removing the 2 screws above the ice mold and pull the icemaker away from the wall. Unplug the icemaker from the wall and remove it.

Remove the screws in the back cover and remove it.

Defrost the evaporator coil with a hair dryer. Do not use a sharp object to remove the frost and ice. The evaporator coil is aluminum and easily punctured.

This will make the refrigerator work 5-7 days and the coil will frost over again. The defrost system consists of the refrigerator control board, defrost heater, and the defrost termination thermostat. One or more of these components has failed to cause the frost build up.

The defrost system is best diagnosed by a technician. I suggest you call 1-800-469-4663 or go to www.searshomeservices.com to schedule service and get a Sears technician to diagnose and repair the problem.

Q:

refrigerator door alignment

A:

Thank you for your question on the door gasket not sealing properly.

From your detail I am going to assume that you are referring to the freezer door gasket on the hinge side.

If you can examine the door gasket to see if it is rolled over then you could use a hair blow dryer to warm the door gasket so it will go back to its factory shape and begin to seal again.

Do not over heat the gasket and melt it but it has to be warm enough for it to go back to its factory mold shape.

If this is not the problem please let me know and give me a little more detail on which door or location has the problem.

Sam A.
