Default 1970's Kenmore Side by side...constantly running
Model Number: 106.7631442   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The refrigerator runs almost constantly...it is cold in the refrigerator and freezing in the freezer....It has has a 2 new fans (freezer and down at the coils underneath) the defrost heater is working...not sure about the defrost thermostat but have no major buildup of frost....defrost timer seems to be working...will shut everything off when manually turned and come back on again by itself.....I DO have condensation on the outside of the cabinet between the 2 doors and the magnetic seals seem ok (no gaps) I do have new seals for the doors but haven't put them on yet....I did clean the coils underneath very well (brushed and vacuumed) but it still runs almost constantly and when in the resting stage if you open the door for anything and shut it almost immediately, it will start running again..PLEASE help i can't afford a new one and the electricity use is wasteful....I did shut it down and waiting to hear your reply...

If if is keeping temps below 15 in freezer and 35 or lower it my be defrosting your thermostat. 482387 is part number but not available on this site. Google it.
Constant running can also be a sign of a refrigerant leak as it depletes the supply. You'll have to monitor temps for a while to see. Most refrigerators will maintain temp until about 1/2 of it has leaked out. At that age that is a likely failure too.
