Probably the fan is not running
take the fan housing off and you may find a buildup of ice preventing the fan from running

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 795.7102. The freezer on the bottom wil not go below 20 degrees. The refrigerator will be at 40 degrees. Something is running all the time.


It's possible that the defrost timer motor has stopped. (note your timer might be incorporated in an electronic control module) This will cause the evaporator coils to ice up. Less likely: The timer may be OK, but the defrost heater assembly is open circuit and therefore not heating up. According to RepairClinic.com, 795.7102 model number is incomplete: "795.7102 is a partial model number for a Kenmore Refrigerator. To see specific parts for your Refrigerator, please choose your exact model from the list above or choose the model that's closest." Here a link:

Can you operate a refrigerator in a garage with out problems


Good day,
The high and low temperature range for a domestic refrigerator is 55 and 95 degrees. Above and below that issues will appear.
Above 95 degrees the compressor will be taxed badly, and will obviously shorten it's life.
Below 55 degrees it will not run enough to keep the freezer at decent temperatures, and because it stays off long periods of time, the oil in the compresser sump will thicken, making compressor starting difficult and once again shortening it's life.

It's done all the time but there is a cost long term.

Refrigerator side of side by side, the door will not open, no visible damage to outside of refrigerator, this is an older model refrigerator Model 52212100


There is most likely a inside shelf out of position and holding the door closed.
Remove the hinge screws from the top corner and lift the door off the bottom hinge to open it.
Check all shelves before re-attaching the door.

Water leaks from freezer onto top shelves on my kenmore coldspot model 106.78202890. where can i find a manual to unclog the drain?


Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or Copper solid wire , ( a ground wire or fence post tie ) 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Bottom Door Shelves and Vegetable Crispers Freezing up


I just had a similar problem, and the bottoms of both sides were cold but the top shelves were warm. I found that the condenser fan, the fan right above the cooling coils was not working. This fan circulates the cold air and if it's not working it can't move the cold air to the top or over to the refrigerator side. Open the freezer door and press the switch that tells the computer the door is closed (so the light goes out), if the fan doesn't come on shortly, or only sputters that could be the problem. You will need to take out the back cover over the coils, the ice maker tray and auger motor if you have one and some other parts. Play around with the plug where it goes into the side wall, if you can get the fan to come on and off, it's most likely a bad fan motor....about $55 to replace. As you take it apart, be sure to take some digital pics of the process so you can remember how it goes back together!
