Furthermore, how do I reset my Kenmore side by side refrigerator?

If this control board experienced a power glitch or surge through the electrical lines, you may be able to reset it by completely unplugging the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power for 5 minutes. After plugging the refrigerator back in, the board may resume normal operation.

Similarly, why is my Kenmore refrigerator not getting cold? If the refrigerator is not cold enough the condenser coils may be dirty. The evaporator fan motor circulates the cold air from the coils thru the compartment. If there is only one evaporator it is in the freezer side. If the fan is not working, no cold air will get to the refrigerator compartment.

In respect to this, how do I reset the control panel on my Samsung refrigerator?

On the display panel, follow these steps:

  1. Press the Power Freezer and the Power Cool buttons at the same time.
  2. Hold the 2 buttons for 3 to 5 seconds.
  3. This will reset the refrigerator back to normal and the fridge will begin cooling again. Related Questions.

What would cause a refrigerator to stop getting cold?

Clogged coils can cause poor cooling. Check to make sure nothing is stuck in the condenser fan and that it spins freely (models with coils on the back won't have a fan). To do this, unplug the fridge and pull it out. Plug in the fridge and make sure the fan runs when the compressor is running.

Does a Kenmore refrigerator have a reset button?

There is no reset button for the compressor but a model number would be helpful giving you a more specific answer. One thing you might listen for is a click or a hum as the compressor tries to start/run. Often the problem is with the start relay and overload and not the compressor itself.

What causes a Samsung refrigerator to stop cooling?

If the condenser coils are dirty, they won't dissipate the heat effectively. As debris builds up on the coils, the refrigerator becomes less efficient, causing the refrigerator to work harder to cool down. If the coils are significantly dirty, the refrigerator will not be able to maintain the proper temperature.
