1. Home & Family I have a Kenmore Coldspot Refrigerator model 106.72132100 Purchased 03/2003. It has the feeezer on top and fridge on bottom. There was a layer of frost in freezer that was causing an ice buildup which wouldnt allow cold air to circulate to the fridge unit. I had repalced the thermostat and defrost heater coil as Fred from mySearscommunity had suggested. I had replaced this last night at 8pm PST after having the fridge and freezer completely off for 24hrs. I checked on fridge just right now at 11am PST and the freezer seems to be working fine with no forst buildup but the fridge doesnt seem to be as cold as I am used to when it is on setting 3. I am not sure what other issue this could be but I was hoping that replacing the heater condenser coil and thermostat would make fridge cold again but it isnt. Please help.Regards,Anthony

    The freezer control is on the right side and the fridge control is on left. I had adjusted the fridge to from a level 3 to a level 5 which is the highest setting but still not a lot of air blowing fr…

  4. Home & Family I have a Kenmore Coldspot Refrigerator model 106.72132100 Purchased 03/2003. It has the feeezer on top and fridge on bottom. The ice machine suddenly stopped working however I used to put my hot tea in there to cool down and I think condensation may have caused a lot of ice buildup. I took feezer apart today and put blow dryer on all the excess buildup so all of that is melted however the ice machine is still not working. Do you have any ideas on how I can further troubleshoor or what the issue is? Like I said up until this week the machine was working now it stopped.

    ...and Fred, do you mind sharing a link to video on replacing the Defrost Heater as it seem more cumbersome than replacing the actual thermostat which looks easy. I have searched youtube and google b…

    Fred, I screwed it until the compressor shut down but I didn't hear a sizzle/pop noise. What exactly is that pop noise and it is really audible? Is it working in the background now that compressor i…

    Thanks Fred for your assistance. It actually was a condensation buildup which caused everything to freeze over once I took apart freezer and defrosted. The ice maker started to work after about 6 ho…
