I have a kennmore 21 refrigerator. The freezer compartment

Customer Question

I have a kennmore 21 refrigerator. The freezer compartment freezes down to zero degrees. But the refrigerator part stays at 44 degrees. by turning the refrigerator control up or down, it makes no difference in the temperature. What needs to be done to make it operate correctly?

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Do you have a model number so that I can better assist you? It should be located on a sticker near the ceiling of the refrigerator.

Also, if you open the freezer door do you hear a fan running inside the freezer?

Kennmore 21 is on door.

Model #9601583

Serial # LO24 44936


When I open freezer door the fan runs, and also the fan on the bottom of refrigerator runs.

OK then pull everything out of the freezer and remove the back panel if you would. Tell me what the silver coils behind this panel look like. Are they packed with frost? No frost? lightly frosted from top to bottom?
