Question and Answers

Q:

model # 79576292600 wont keep cool. when i unplug it for awhile and when i plug it back in it works for only a few hours. can u tell me what can be the problem

A:

It sounds like your refrigerator is building up ice or frost that blocks the airflow. When you unplug it for awhile some of the frost melts and then refreezes.

I am assuming the freezer section of your appliance is working ok.

You could disconnect the power to the refrigerator and remove the shelves and drawers. Remove the duct that runs up the back of the refrigerator and look at the damper door to see if it is frozen up.

You can defrost the damper with a hair dryer and the refrigerator might work.

The surest method is to call 1-800-469-4663 or go to www.searshomeservices.com and schedule service for a Sears technician to diagnose and repair the problem.
