Kenmore refrigerator needs a compartment replacement

Kenmore refrigerators are reliable enough to satisfy even picky customers. Nevertheless, time and daily use result in facility wear. It is necessary to run diagnostics of all parts if you see that your appliance has lost its efficiency. When the freezer is not cold enough, there is a necessity to check the compressor. Your refrigerator compressor makes use of a low-pressure, gaseous refrigerant that helps keep your food cold. If you adjust the thermostat of your fridge for more cold air, your refrigerator compressor kicks in, causing the refrigerant to move through the cooling fans. It also helps the fans to push cool air into your freezer compartments. There is no reset button for the compressor but a model number would be helpful giving you a more specific answer. One thing you might listen for is a click or a hum as the compressor tries to start/run. Often the problem is with the start relay and overload and not the compressor itself. We recommend you reset the compressor on a refrigerator following the steps below:

  1. Locate the refrigerator power cord on the back of the appliance.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Turn both the fridge and freezer controls to "Off" or "0" inside the fridge.
  4. Adjust the fridge and freezer controls to the desired setting.
  5. Allow the fridge up to one day to adjust to a stable temperature.

You may have to replace the compressor if all else is in good working condition. If you know how to test a compressor, then you can check it for life. Otherwise, contact a licensed appliance technician to run the test and replace the compressor if necessary. Always get professional help if you are not sure about how to replace damaged or faulty parts of your Kenmore refrigerator. This is especially true if your unit has an active warranty.
