Question and Answers


Side by side Kenmore Refrigerator #59658697890: The defrost cycle is not working automatically all the time. When the freezer thaws to the point that water


Thank you for your question. I can understand your wondering why the refrigerator is acting this way even after you replaced the defrost timer control.

Since this did not fix the problem I would suspect that the cold control/thermostat may be not coming back on all the time and is hanging up.

When the unit warms up I would suggest that you open the refrigerator door and touch the control knob and see if it comes on. If it does I think that is your problem and may have been all the time.

If you can confirm this is the problem then here is the part number for the cold control. R0161092

I hope this information will help.
