DEar Appliance Gurus,   I know this is pre-square one, but I tried the Kenmore decoder page and couldn't identify where to locate model # plate.  Appliance is called "Kenmore 22 porcelain plus."     Thanks

check inside the fresh food side ( the right side) along the top of the side walls , maybe even the cieling. if no luck, check alond the bottom where the toe panel is on the frame of the frige where your door gasket touches.

Dear Appl-Tech,     Thanks for the help with data plate.  I now have the numbers as follows:       MODEL:  106. 8562782

                  SERIAL:  S 71716390

                    TYPE:     22ASR87   (not sure whether 'SR'   or   '5R' )

 

Now the 'problem:'     I have a new home--it's not actually new whose kitchen came equipped with this KENMORE Side by Side.   It really seems to run alot so I have turned down the freezer dial to  #3   and have inched down the fridge so that it also is at  # 3.  This has appeared to shorten its' 'motor running' cycles.  The fridge thermostat dial does work because, while running, the motor goes off when I turn the dial down.  But what should I expect for on/off  run times and frequency,  say, if  I don't open the door for a couple of hours just to observe?    Thanks!

this box is alittle on the older side.... but IMHO... is alot better than most you would buy today (also it's built by Whirlpool)....the cold control is the one that sets the temp in the box....just because you can turn it down manually and it shuts down , doesn't necessarily mean it will do it by itself....I had a customer with a GE built the same way that would run and shut down but never turn back on, until you turned it by hand then it would come back on and run till it shut down again....after replacing the Cold Control,  I took the old one apart and it was sooted up and blistered....I would be very surprised if this wouldn't work for you also...and the good thing about it if you order from the link posted if it doesn't fix it you can return the parts no questions asked....good  luck....check back

the knob on the left side is the air flow coming from the freezer  and it should be set in the middle, if you turn it toward 9 it will let less air in the ref. side and will let it run longer before sutting down going toward the 1 will let more air in causing it to cool faster.....these controls are confusing sometimes...and work opposite from the way they look...after removing the back plastic panel you can see everything there

Dear Poobah,   thanks for your reply.  I have some new data on the old kenmore operation. Yesterday morning, while in bed,  knowing the fridge hasn't been opened in many hours I made notes on its' cycling on and off. To summarize: In 90 minutes of observation, it went on for 12-14 minutes then off for 12-14 minutes and kept diong this until I had to leave for work. Note that I did not open the door at all during this period and the door had been closed all night. So it does go on and off but seemingly much too often.  Does this condition sound like faulty Cold Control?

In the meantime I will adjust the freeze/fridge air flow and look for the "back plastic panel to view.  You do mean the panel is located on the back side cause this machine is built tightly into a cabinet and up against a sidewall.  Thanks for your help.

the plastic panel I'm refrerring to is the one in the back of the fridge side where the cold control is (actually should have the control knob sticking through it, you would have had to take it off to install cold control) the air comes in to the left....this is going to sound crazy but check the door switch to make sure the light is going out when the door is closed...

12-14 minutes is a little quick to cycle, ....you said your gaskets look good, but when you open the fridge door does it have alittle resistance (should make a suction sound) you may need to clean the gaskets and the front of the fridge where it hits with some vinegar if they are slick....the gaskets must make a tight seal

how low do you have the temp set at or what is the avg. temp in the morn. when you get up after sitting closed overnight

Dear Poobah,   Thanks, I'll clean the gasket and door and check on the light going out and the overnight chamber temp then report back!

Dear Poobah,  

With "cold control" set to # 3 in fridge and  freezer dial set to  2, here's what i've found so far:

>  the gasket looks good, is clean and suction sound is distinct

>  light switch works--bulb goes out when door closes

>  fridge runs for 12-14 minutes,  then goes off for about the same interval

>  fridge temperature on 2 successive mornings(door closed all night)  35 and 36 F note, I took the reading just following an 'on' cycle.

What to do next?  It does seem to constantly cycle on and off all night but sleeping in a studio with a fridge/freezer nearby is new I must admit. But you can see the frequency of on/off cycling--this is unusually often isn't it? Will shunting more freezer air to the fridge help?   Thanks for your advice.
