    Experiencing excessive moisture dripping (puddling) on the bottom freezer side of the unit and well to the left of the drip pan. The evaporator coils in freezer are covered in a significant amount of frost, could this defrost timer be the problem? And should there even be frost on the coils?Thanks!
    For model number KSSC42MHS00
    Hi Earl, thank you for your question. That would be one of the parts I would suggest checking for sure. The other two parts I would suggest taking a look at would be your defrost thermostat and your defrost heater. There actually should be no frost on your coils because that will restrict air flow and then your appliance will eventually stop getting as cold as it should be. You can test all of those parts with a multi meter to determine whether or not they are working correctly. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    My freezer is cold but the refrigerator is not?
    For model number KBRS21KDL00
    Hello Thomas, thank you for writing. If your refrigerator is not cooling properly, there are a few parts you will need to check. You will need to check the defrost timer, the condenser fan motor kit, the capacitor, the evaporator fan motor kit, the cold control thermostat, the fresh food door gasket, the start relay cover and the light rocker switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

        would stay in defrost mode for a long time, inside refrigerator would get warm.
        Repair went fine, no problems, had to wait for fan and compressor to come on. New defrost timer must of been in defrost mode, came on in about 30 minutes and is working fine, should get a few more years out of it.

        thermostat will not fit the thermostat bracket.
        I had to cut a portion of the bracket out to make room for its over length and electrical blades location. There was no instructions. Kenmore on line instructions were some what close but totally wrong pics. But its in and working.
