    Kenmore Elite side by side. Refridgerator not cooling freezer is fine.

    Model Number: 10650593000
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: More than 10 years

    I've seen a lot of fridges on here with the same issue. I have been without a fridge for over amonth. I originally had a side by side kenmore that was over 20 yrs old but compressor went bad and was not worth fixing. So I went online trying to find a good used one. My appliances were black so I was trying to find one to match. After looking for weeks and not finding one that wasn't white or junk or too much for a used fridge. I decided to buy a new one from sears but on my way to sears I looked on craigslist and found a nice stainless one for $250. He said it worked fine. I get to his house and he had plugged it in and the freezer was nice and cold but fridge was warm still. He said he bought it at an estate sale and it kept his food colder on the bottom than the top. He said he bought for in the mean time till he got his new one. My dumb ass bought it from him for a hundred thinking it would be an easy fix. I posted on the other elite refridgerator about a week and a half ago but haven't seen a response. I went through all the steps listed on it and don't know what I need to do. I'm down to either thermostat or diffuser. I don't want to be a parts changer. Would like to diagnose it before I buy anything.

    Do you see any frost buildup on the lower back panel of the freezer?

    Is the fan inside the freezer section running? What kind of temperatures are you seeing in the refrigerator and freezer?
