I have a 5 year old Kenmore refrigerator, and it is having problems
continually cooling. The other day I noticed it was not running, and my
freezer items were begining to thaw. The temperature dials were set to
normal as usual. Raising the coldness level did nothing. However, when
I turned the coldness level to zero (off), and then turned it back to a
colder level the fridge cooling turned back on.
The same problem happened again today, and the same "solution" worked.
Turning the dial to zero (off), then back up to a cooling level. I
don't have a noticable issue with dripping water or frost. I also have
very few items in the freezer and fridge. Any ideas?
Thanks for the responses.
I doubt it is the defrost cycle, unless it is a very aggressive defrost
cycle. My ice cream turned into soup..literally. It has happened a
number of times now, not sure if it is at the same time each day
though. I will look more into the thermostat suggestion
Is the fan running? Our fridge did almost the same thing, it was cool but
anything at the front of the freezer would thaw. The tech pulled the panel
from the back of the freezer and replaced the fan and away it went.
