I have a Kenmore side by side refrig. about 1 and a half

Customer Question

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig. about 1 and a half years old. Model(###) ###-#### The refrig. stopped running and both sides defrosted the food. I noticed it first when the ice started to melt and water came out the water dispenser area. On a whim, I turned both cold control knobs on the inside of the door to off and then turned them back on. The compressor began to run again, as usual very quiet, and now the cooling is back to normal. But I suspect that when it gets to the set temperature and it turns off (maybe the defrost cycle??:) that it might not start up again. You advice would be appreciated.
