I have a Kenmore Coldspot side by side that is not cooling on both the freezer and the refrigerator. I check the compressor and it seems to be running. The comp ohms seem normal at ~ 10, 6, and 4 across the pins. Condensor fan and evaporator fans are running. The defrost heater and thermostat both have continuity. Can you tell me what to check next?

Side by Side . The top shelf items are frosting and the bottom is creating a layer of ice. Large and very loud pops are heard throughout the day and night. Defrosted by turning refrigerator off and re-occurred after a few weeks or so. Checked the drain pan and it is bone dry. I suspect a clogged drain? What else could it be.

I have Whirlpool side by side refrigerator (model # GD5SHAXNB00) that was given to me after it had been working on and off and eventually replaced. After researching I learned that it was common for the OEM control board to burn out if a light bulb burned out. I checked that and found a transistor and pathway that had burned out. It has now been replaced, but is still not cooling sufficiently. The compressor runs, I cleaned the condenser coils, there's no ice buildup in the freezer, and the air ducts are clear (although the air diffuser assembly part # AP4327308 is broken I can manually adjust it). When plugged in the evaporator coil only frosts down the first expansion tube down to the bottom of the coil but does not frost beyond the first bend. I removed the thermistor and tested it with a multimeter and observed the following; room temp 3.72k ohms, ice water 8.79k ohms. I read elsewhere, but for a different brand, that it should read something closer to 6.2 and 16.3 k ohms respectively. Do those numbers also apply to my whirlpool indicating I need a new one? Also, there's been twice that I noticed after unplugging the unit a couple of bubbles form from under the shrink tubing where the expansion tubing first connects to the evaporator coil pack. Is this possibly a coolant leak, or maybe just air under the shrink tubing expanding and bubbling out? Basically, how do I tell it it's an actual coolant leak? Thanks for your help!

Latest Questions

My refrigerator keeps freezing food. Even at highest setting a meat thermometer is reading less than 30 degrees. The freezer works fine. I have unloaded, unplugged and let the unit sit open for 4 hours twice but within a few days it is freezing things in the fridge. Last time I moved everything away from the vents to no avail. I think I need to replace the Thermistor. Where is it located in my refrigerator?

Yes my refrigerator and frezzer is not staying as cold as it should. I called a sevice man out to check it he said everything looked alright and sounded good but he thinks the thermostat was going out but he priced me around 200 for the part. What do you think?

My freezer coils keep icing over. I have replaced the bimetal sensor and the heater element. Still icing. I disconnected the element at one end, took a voltage reading at the end of the element with a fluke digital meter, and got 64 volts between the open connectors. I took a reading from the element end to the fan ground and got 64 volts. Shouldn't the heating element be getting 115 volts to properly melt the ice? Could the thermistor be bad? Is there a defrost thermostat in this refrigerator or is it integrated into the board?
