Diagnosing kenmore fridge issue


Hello, I have a 10 year old Kenmore Coldspot side-by-side fridge/freezer. The unit stopped cooling after emitting three or four clicks, like the thermostat was kicking in and out. So I installed a new thermostat. This did not help.
Current situation: Motor runs, but does not cool.
What is my next step to diagnose this problem?

This should probably be moved to the "Appliance", sub-forum.

Diagnosing kenmore fridge issue


Sorry, thought it would be a repair rather than an improvement. Is there a way to delete or move thread?

Click on the red circle with the exclamation mark in it. that is the report post button. Then ask that the thread be moved. And we will move it for you. Which I already did.

Good luck with your fridge.

clicking noises would indicate the compressor relay trying to start the compressor. Either you have a bad compressor or a bad relay, best bet is the relay. $25 part.
