Default Refrigerator died?
Model Number: 596.75504400   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years

Howdee all.
We have a not entirely old Sears KEnmore 3 door bottom freezer refer.
The other day I noticed it making a noise that I had thought was working harder than normal on the water line-- pump or something.
Tonight, my wife pointed out that the freezer was no longer working, and the refer part wasn't as cold as normal.
As our last refrigerator lasted some 25-30 years, this is more than a little disappointing....
Any ideas on what it could be?
Does this model usually quit so young in its life?

The problem I had thought it was was the ice maker pump. It sounds like a motor that can't quite start. It's like there's a whine, and then a switch/relay that clicks that causes it to stop.
Help... please.
TYIA.

Ok, I found out that we bought this in May 2004.
I also pulled the freezer drawer out, and found that the noise is coming from underneath the refer.

If the clicking noise is from the compressor in the back, probably from a bad compressor start device behind the compressor side cover. Order it here,AP4079373.
If it looks different than the one on the compressor, let us know.

Default ok, thanks

Morning Rich,

Ok, this was the same part I thought it would be, after reading some of the other discussions on it.
Well, I ordered the part, so we'll find out this weekend....
Thanks for your time.
Enjoy your day, an the rest of the week.

Default got the parts-- anyone got an access/service manual

Hi,
Ok, the parts just arrived
Where is the location for this part?
On the bottom? from the back?
I see what appears to be a service access door at the bottom of the unit, in back, is that it?
Anyone got a service manual for this unit? Please???
Thank you.

Ok, opened up the back panel, found the compressor, and on the left side of the compressor is a device which looks like the compressor start device. I've removed it. It appears to match. All the #'s match. The girl I'm talking on the phone say they match, so that part looks good.
The problem that I am now having is that I can't get the pins to line up.
The first thing I notice about the bases of the two start devices is that the older one is shorter in height, and narrower in width than the new one.
The next thing I notice is that the width difference is all in the top side of the base. I was able to remove the old easily enough, but now I can't even align that back up to get in place, to have a sense of how to do the same to the new one.
Help..... any input will be really helpful.....

Alright. I figured it out. I had tried aligning it horizontally, instead of vertically. This device is to be inserted vertically-- NOT horizontally.
doh!

Default 1 month update... not good

howdee all.
Last month I came in and posted the above thread on a dead refrigerator. as you can see I bought the capacitor, and it seemed to work fine. This past week that noise I'd described began again.
I checked the refrigerator when I'd hear the noise, and it still was cold. The freezer was working too, but now, this evening, the ice has melted, frozen deserts are melted, and the noise just keeps happening.
Help.....

Thank you.

Is the noise a clicking sound from the compressor?

Default clicking from compressor?

Morning Rich.
I have no idea where the noise is coming from, except that it's the identical noise as before. It cycles, it sounds as though the compressor is trying to start, and then stops, tries to start, and then stops.
Like a noise starts, and then can't accomplish it's goal, an gives up. It starts again. The noise kept getting louder, more pronounced, and just kept doing it over and over.
It is the exact same noise as before. All the cycling, sound, type, properties of that noise are identical to what was happening back in June.

Default this is weird....

this is just plain weird on so many levels....
This morning I turned the freddie back on to 4, and no noise, no cycling of sounding like it's trying to kick start and fail... My father in law came out an hour ago and said it's at 35degreesF.

My wife now wants to put everything back, and I'm waiting for an answer, so we don't have to move it all again.....

You probably have a hard starting compressor that starts when the line voltage is high, but has trouble when the line voltage is lower.Probably damaged start winding. An amprobe would confirm this.
