Your Compressor is wearing out. Better be prepared for it quitting all together

Hello Tom;

My name is Peter; I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number which is located on the inside liner of the refrigerator.

If the freezer light is the only thing that works, then you are locked into the defrost mode. Every 8-10 hours your unit will shut down for about 10-20 minutes. At this time your defrost heater turns on. Thereafter, your unit restarts to cool.

Go into the following website. You will get diagrams and part numbers for your components.

Locate your defrost timer. It may be in the lower back right hand side (a metal plate with a through hole). With a flat head screw driver turn the stem one click at a time clockwise to trip the defrost timer.

Or, it may be in your control board or elsewhere.

If it is in your control board do not panic. Take the part number from the website search the internet (Buy used/remanufacture) and get the board for 40-50% less.

If it is the control board, ground yourself by touching bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a control board. Water Filters Lawn Garden Appliance Parts

Use a freezer thermometer and tell me the actual temperature. Or at least store some ice cream and see if it stays brick hard. Unless I have some idea of the actual temp I can't tell if defective freezer or alarm

Sounds like compressor is overheating and taking hours to restart. check by listening for the hum of the compressor shortly after it has reached temperature. also check the condenser is clean and fan working.

Kenmore Freezers | Answered on Dec 18, 2015

If all fans are running, but not compressor You could try to install 3 N 1 start kit, thats might help 50/50. If it will start compressor - be ready for compressor to go out soon. might work for a year.
