    Default Kenmore Coldspot - not getting cold

    Model Number: 106.9712610
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: More than 10 years

    Refrigerator was running fine. Our electricity went out a couple times during the night. The next day, I noticed the refrig wasn't cooling anymore. When I turn it on, I can hear the fan running, but I don't hear the compressor starting. Is there a reset/relay button for the compressor? What else can I check or do to figure out what's wrong.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi CM,

    It may be the compressor start relay, its mounted on the side of the compressor.

    You will need a ohm meter to ohm it for continuity, Unplug your refrigerator first before removing and testing it. If after you remove it shake it, if it rattles inside its definitely bad.

    Here's that relay for your model you can order here if needed:
