Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Temp is erratic too warm, too cold ....

Came home and most everything in the freezer was thawed (a mess). Frig side was warm as well 50 deg F. Turned the thermostat much colder and frig fired up next morning below freezing in the frig side. Turned thermostat down some... that night back up to 45 deg F. Frig is approx. 13-15 years old side by side, Kenmore with Ice and water in the door approx. 21 cu ft. Any ideas... Is it worth fixing???

Sounds like the defrost timer is not working correctly or the start capacitor is malfunctioning,Both are cheap and easy fixes.

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

My kenmore refrigerator side by side


All the cooling takes place in the freezer and is blown over to the frig side so the frig side will start to warm up soon. Possible cause is the starting device to the compressor is faulty, compressor motor locked up or cold control faulty and not closing.
