Where is the temperature control located for kenmore coldspot refrigerator model 106.51139210
There are two temperature sensors (one in the refrigerator and one in the freezer). The refrigerator sensor is near the front of the compartment on the right side below the door switch and above the slides for the drawers. The freezer's refrigerator temperature sensor is on the left near the top of the compartment. See the two liner diagrams on the page linked below. To change the temperature, press and hold the Temperature button on the LCD panel for 3 seconds. The display should read the current temperature set point and Refrigerator. Use the Acceler-Ice button to lower the temperature in the fridge. Press the Lock button to raise the temperature in the refrigerator compartment. Press Temperature again to see the Freezer set-point and adjust it as above. Note: the temperature in each part of the unit depends on air circulating from the freezer into the refrigerator. Make sure that the vents aren't blocked. Wait 24 hours after adjusting the temperature set points for the unit to reach equilibrium before deciding if the set point should be adjusted further.

Kenmore Elite side by side model 106.57789704 Ice maker not working
One thing it could be is that the water solenoid not closing completely. Water drips from fill tube into icemaker and freezes, not allowing any water to get through. This is fairly common and with a couple of tools, you might be able to fix it yourself if you're handy. Could be other causes too, this is the one i'm familiar with.
UPDATE> If the water filler tube that empties into the tray is frozen solid, then it;s probably the water solenoid (not shutting off).. And you want to avoid cycling the system (the heating element coming on) without water in the tray. That's what i saw in a video. Hope that helps.
