Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

What could be making refrigerator side freeze all the food except the stuff in the drawers, freezer side is way to cold as well? Its a Kenmore Cold-spot, side by side, model #106.56722600. Thank you!

Same thing happened about 4 weeks ago but I had turned the fridge sides controller down then from its factory recommendation dotwhere the number 3 goes about 1 notch, to the number 2. I was hoping that would fix the freezing everything in the fridge side problem. And it actually worked, the milk wasn't frozen the next morning and everything has been fine for about 4 weeks now. But it's back to being way to cold again. Both sides, fridge & freezer. I turned fridge side down again 3 days ago from #2, to #1 on the fridge sides controller, and from #3 to #2 on the freezer sides controller. After 3 days, it seems to have helped again. But theres no more settings to lower it to on the fridge sides controller now. Its on 1 now, and that's the lowest it goes. And the freezer can now only go down 1 more setting. If this happens again in 4 weeks like last time I lowered the settings, the only setting left on the fridge side is unplugging refrigerator. Thats the lowest setting i got left, I guess. Thanks for any help. I got tools, meters, etc/I'm auto mechanicnot sure that even matters but I thought I'd throw that in Thx!

I would guess it's the fan in the freezer compartment that's bad.

My Kenmore side by side is fine, except for freezing everything in the crisper drawers.


The coldest place in your fridge is in the crisper drawers, manufactures know this and they even put heaters under the floor of your fridge to try to heat it up a bit in there, if you set your freezer temperture to low there will be less cold air current that flows into your fridge but it will flow in over a longer period of time, that air is about -22C so it will be blowing on your items in your crisper for a long time and it will probably freeze them, all very confusing and complicated but it may help to turn your controles for your freezer to a warmer setting, on the other hand if you only open your fridge a few times a day the cold air being denser will settle in the bottom of the fridge and freeze the crisper area, not much you can do about this, except eat more food... :-)

I'm not sure which one I have, but purchased my approx. 2 yr. old Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator from a trusted contractor doing some work in my home. I have a problem with the left produce bin......


Cold air from freezer blows into refrigerator compartment right behind that tray. Freezes stuff in that tray. Pizpoor design. Known issue. With GE refrigerators also of same design. That kenmore most likely was build by GE. GE/Kenmore deny the issue but thousands of posts online about it. No solution. Sorry. Good luck.

Bottom drawer of the refrigerator freezes the fruit.


I think the thermostat is faulty. Thus it makes the freezer extra cold. Try replacing it. Regards, Nandini.

All food on top shelf of refrigeratr is freezing


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

We have a ge side by side and the refrigerator is freesing stuff. the model number is GSS25X SNA BS


Is it all areas of the fresh food side that are freezing your items, or is it the drawer area?

There is a direct connection (on my GE side-by-side, at least) between the freezer compartment and the drawers in the fresh food compartment. The size of the connection is controlled with a wheel or a slider. This could contribute to freezing in that area of the fresh food compartment.

Otherwise, it could be the temp sensor(s) in the fresh food compartment. If the computer thinks the temp is too high in the fresh food compartment, it will continue to cool.

It could be a problem with the motorized door that connects the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment, located at the top of the dividing wall between the compartment. That door should close when the temp in the fresh food compartment is cold enough. If that door mechanism has failed, is disconnected, or otherwise blocked in the open position, cold air from the freezer compartment will continue to circulate into the fresh food compartment.

Kenmore elite fridge crisper drawer freezing stuff


If you have a side by side model you need to look at the refrigerator compartment wall on the left of the bottom drawer and move the slide control to the warmer/fruit/vegitable setting instead of the meat setting.
I hope this helped. Please rate my help or ask for more help please. supertechks
