Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Kenmore Side by Side. The freezer has stopped cooling and the ice has melted completely (I cam home to find the bottom of the freezer full of water). Ice is no longer being made (obviously), but there is a little cool air on the freezer side. On the refrigerator side, the air is still somewhat cool but much less so than normal and not enough to properly cool the contents to keep them fresh. The motor and fan seem to still be running, its just not cooling/freezing any longer.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling
You will have to let it run for a while, then take the interior back cover off the freezer side to look at the frost pattern on the coils. There should be a nice even white frost on them all, if there is a solid block of ice the defrost cycle isn't working and if there is not much frost but a few inches then you likely have a sealed system leak (no more refrigerant). There can be other issues like the compressor start device not working or the temp control failed, etc. so we will have to go back and forth to do more troubleshooting. Repost with more info when you have it.

Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)
