When you buy a Kenmore refrigerator, you will often have been told that the appliance is known for its quality, durability and reliability. However, even the almost perfect Kenmore refrigerator can occasionally fail and need to be fixed. If you are facing the problem of a broken down Kenmore refrigerator troubleshoot and repair steps can help you to overcome the problems. This allows you to attempt a repair on your own. If you can successfully identify the problem and find a replacement part, you could save a lot of money on labor and expensive repairs.
Failure to Refrigerate
If your refrigerator is losing its cool, then you will find out about it pretty soon. The first step in troubleshooting a refrigeration problem is to check that the machine is properly plugged in. You can always unplug it and plug it back into try to reset it, but if this doesn't work then you need to look elsewhere. Look at the thermostat and make sure it is set to the right temperature. A little problem which often occurs is that it has been set to the “demo mode,” used in stores to display the refrigerator without actually operating it.
Checking For Other Issues
You can also try to check for other issues that may be causing a problem with your fridge. For example, if there is moisture building up around the bottom of the fridge, in the drain pan and in the crisper drawer, then it is likely that your defrost pan is iced over or full of debris. If you cannot defrost the pan, then you may need to replace the part that has failed. This is commonly the water tube leading to the pan, or the pan itself.

If you are able to locate the problem yourself, then you may discover that you need to buy a replacement part.
