Thread: Compressor will not shut off

  1. #1

    Compressor will not shut off

    Model Number: 59678574803
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 6-10 years

    The compressor and fan run all the time. Can not force into defrost mode. If I leave plugged in freezer will go to -22 or lower, Fresh
    food section holds at 38. Can not turn off compressor/fan by setting control to "off". Setting controls to warmer temp
    will not shut compressor/fan off. All other functions appear to me normal. When initially plugged in, compressor/fan come on immediately.

    For the lack of something better to try, I unplugged all connections to main controller board and plugged back in. Everything works perfect now. ???

    Hopefully it continues to work, sometimes unplugging the refrigerator can reset the electronics.
