I have a sears kenmore 22 refrigerator, model(NNN) NNN-NNNN Sometimes it just shuts off and when I touch a little red button on the thermostat in the refrigerator side it starts back up. How can I fix this ?
Are you talking about the powemiser button?

No, the power miser is a switch that says on reduces outside moisture and off saves energy. I guess what I mean is behind the thermostat plate is a sort of button with a hole in the center of it. It moves but does not actually depress. When I move or wiggle it the frig starts back up. Hope I make sense !!

Your problem is the thermostat, replacing it should repair your problem, the contacts are sticking open on you...thsi is part number(NNN) NNN-NNNN, and can be ordered at or
