Modern households need fridges to keep food fresh. It’s a reliable and efficient method of preserving food items for longer periods of time. But, there are instances that the Kenmore refrigerator can cause more harm than good, especially when it comes to freezing food. Freezing food in the refrigerator is a problem that many suffer from and could cause a number of issues , such as food spoilage, freezer burn, as well as a loss in flavor and texture. In this article we will look at the reasons the Kenmore refrigerator could be freezing food items and the best way to stop it from happening. We will also give guidelines on how you can properly store and organize the contents of your Kenmore refrigerator to ensure that your food stays tasty and fresh. If you’re a veteran cook or just beginning to learn learning the way your Kenmore refrigerator functions and how you can avoid freezing food items can help you to save money, reduce food waste and enjoy your meals to the fullest.
01 01 Kenmore Refrigerator Thermostat for Temperature Control
The temperature control thermostat regulates the power to the compressor, fan motors for condenser and evaporator fan according to the need. If the thermostat for temperature control isn’t working correctly it can cause the refrigerant system in the refrigerator to run more than is needed. The refrigerator of Kenmore will become too cold. If the thermostat does not click, change it from the lowest setting to the most extreme setting. The thermostat should click if it isn’t clicking. For a check of continuity, you can make use of a multimeter to confirm that the thermostat is operating. If the thermostat that controls temperature is not in a state of continuous operation in any setting, then replace it.
02 02 Kenmore Refrigerator Heater
The thermistor is a device that monitors the temperature of the air and transmits it to the control board. The control board then regulates the power supply to the compressor and evaporator fan based on the thermistor readings. If the thermistor is damaged then the compressor and fan may run too frequently. The refrigerator will become too cold because of this. To confirm if the temperature sensor is defective, test it with an instrument. The Kenmore refrigerator temperature should cause the thermistor’s resistance to change. If the thermistor resistance doesn’t change, or the thermistor is not have continuity, then replace the thermistor.
03 – Kenmore Refrigerator Main Control Board
The control board that is the main culprit could be inoperable. The issue is not always caused by the control board. Before you replace the control board, make sure that you test all the components which are likely to be defective. If none of the components are defective, consider replacing the main control board.
04 – Kenmore Refrigerator Temperature Control Board
The temperature control board provides voltage to the compressor and fan motors. The control board could not provide enough current to the compressor as well as fan motors. The refrigerator of Kenmore can become too cold. Control boards are frequently misdiagnosed. Prior to replacing the control board, test the other frequently defective components. If the other components is defective, consider replacing the temperature control board.
05 – Kenmore Temperature set to cold
The Kenmore refrigerator temperature controller can be adjusted to a warmer setting. A lot of models have a suggested temperature setpoint, which is usually between 34 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Give it 24 hours to allow the temperature to correct.
06 06 Kenmore Refrigerator Fan Motor
The Kenmore refrigerator’s evaporator fan motor is able to draw air over the cold evaporator coils , which cools the air. The air is then circulated through the Kenmore freezer and refrigerator compartments, keeping the temperature sufficient to preserve food. If the motor of the evaporator is malfunctioning, the cold air that is escaping from the freezer or refrigerator coils that evaporate can flow through the air ducts to the lower part of the refrigerator to cause the food to be frozen. To check if the fan blades are turning freely, you can test turning the blades of the fan. If not, it’s likely the motor’s bearings have failed and the motor may need to be repaired. Multimeters can be used to determine if there is electrical continuity. If the motor has no electrical continuity, the motor will not function and a replacement motor has to be installed.
07 – Food items too close to the vents
Allow space between the air vents and the food items. Certain food items can be frozen if they are placed close to the cold air vent.
08 08 Kenmore Refrigerator Damper
To let the appropriate quantity of chilled air into the Kenmore refrigerator the damper is opened and closes. The refrigerator will not cool down if the damper is left open. In the end, the Kenmore refrigerator will become too cold. Verify the damper to see whether it’s damaged or stuck open.
09 – Kenmore Refrigerator Damper Control Assembly
To make sure that the fridge compartment is cooling at the right temperature The air damper control closes and opens. The refrigerator won’t cool down if the damper isn’t closed properly. Verify the damper’s control to determine if it is broken or has become stuck open.
10 10 Kenmore Refrigerator Defrost Thermostat
The temperature of evaporator coils is monitored by the defrost thermostat in the Kenmore refrigerator. The thermostat’s contacts close when the coils fall below a certain temperature to allow power flow to the heater during the defrost cycle. A faulty defrost thermostat may not permit voltage to reach the heater in the defrost, resulting in the cooling coils in the evaporator getting frosted over, causing an interruption in air flow and cooling. To determine if the defrost thermostat is defective, you can use the multimeter to check for continuity of electrical power. If the defrost thermostat does not have continuity when it is at the lowest temperature within the operating range, then replace it.
