Customer Question
I have a Kenmore...

I have a Kenmore Coldspot model 106 made in 1999. Last night it defrosted on the freezer side. I put food into ice chests and this morning it was working again. I vacuumed out the coils (they needed it). it seems to be working now like it always has. anything I should be checking?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Yeah it says date of manufacture 05-99 and it is model 106

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Dont know but can if not too technical.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

We do not use the water hook up or filtrations system in this unit at all.

When the unit stopped working, did you still hear any fans or motors running or was the unit 100% silent like it wasn't running anymore?
