I noticed about 6 weeks ago that the divider between the freezer and fridge sections of my side by side Kenmore elite was very hot to the touch. I learned that this was likely the condenser fan motor, and after seeing that it didn't turn on, I replaced it, fixing the problem. One month later I noticed water coming from the ice dispenser and soon all the ice was melted. The refrigerator no longer cools, though the condenser fan is running just fine now, LOL. Any advice?

compressor relay

after doing some research I think it is the compressor relay. The compressor turns on when I plug in the fridge, then after a few seconds I hear a click and it shuts off. The fans continue to run, but not the compressor. Also I removed the relay from the compressor and it rattles. Does anyone have the part number and where I could purchase a new compressor relay for a Kenmore Elite, model number 52609100?

How long have you been using this refrigerator for?
It could be the compressor or gas. if you still have the warranty than get it replaced.
