Went through Appliance Parts Pros.com's on-line system describing my Kenmore refrigerator problem which through process of elimination stated 40% chance bottom hinges or 50% Defrost Timer. Purchased your timer which I installed. Results = some improvement but, not repaired yet. I had already measured Temps with my Infrared and also checked for leaks around double side by side doors. I double checked gaskets and cleaned them anyway. I checked levelness and cleaned dust bunnies from coils. Also checked for blockages and opened trap door all the way. (The small adjustable door opening between between the Freezer and Fridge). Still runs almost all the time? I am wondering 1). Does my Fridge have a slow freon leak? 2). Does this model have a freon filler cap to test freon pressure? 3). Would a Appliance mechanic be able to refill and use a stop leak. 4). What kind of freon is it? 5). What year was my Fridge manufactured? Will you help by answering these five questions?

Hello, I recently purchased a defrost thermostat/heater assembly from your company and now the fridge side is cold as well. I have the freezer set on 1 and the food is very frozen so that's good and the fridge side is set at 5 and seems perfect. What I notice now is the ice maker at first made enough to fill the ice trough but eventually is only making enough to fill about 1/4 of it. Under continuous usage it wouldn't be able to keep up. I appreciate any advice on this matter.

Our side by side started getting warm on the refrigerator side. About 4 days later the freezer side got warm and was not freezing. I looked at your website and took the panel off. I saw that the coils were covered in frost. I defrosted the coils manually and cleaned the bottom of the unit. The refrigerator worked great for about two weeks and then the same problem happened. I ordered a defrost timer and thermostat and replaced the old ones. I again manually defrosted the coils. Worked great for about two weeks again and now the same problem happened again. I did not change the heaters out, I thought they were working because they did not have any frost on them. Is this an indication of the heaters working? Any suggestions on which part to try next or a solution?

Our side by side fridge was not cooling down, and about 3 days later the freezer part started warming up. I took off the panel and saw that the coils were frozen over so I defrosted these and cleaned the under side of the fridge. The fridge started working normally again for about 2 weeks, then the same thing happened, fridge warmed up to about 55 degrees, freezer started warming up 3 days later. I read the advice on this website and ordered a thermostat and thermostat timer. Did not order heaters because they were not iced over, now I'm wondering if that is even an indication of them working or not. I defrosted the coils manually while I changed the 2 parts. Two weeks have gone by and the fridge is having the same problem. Any advice on the problem?
