Thanks for contacting
. I understand your concern with the cycling times on the refrigerator. We are here to help. The refrigerator cycling depends on several factors: They are as follows:
The temperature in the room. The hotter the room the more often it will come on.
The opening and closing of the doors. The more often you open the door. The more it will turn on to cool the temperatures back down.
Is the refrigerator properly maintained? The condenser coil should be cleaned once a year. However, if you have pets every 6 months. A clean coil will help the refrigerator run more efficiently and cool down faster. A dirty coil will cause the refrigerator to run longer since the heat is not being release properly.
Is the door sealing properly? If the door is not sealing, the cold air will escape. That will cause the refrigerator to turn on more often and longer.
Is the refrigerator over full? Too much food inside will cause it to run longer. The air inside cannot circulate properly to keep the food at the proper temperature.
I suspect your refrigerator is working properly. All refrigerator made within the last 10 yrs are designed to run more often. That is due to high efficient compressors. I do recommend that you clean the condenser coil. That is located in the back of the refrigerator. Also place thermometer inside the refrigerator and freezer. Leave it in there 2 hrs. The freezer should read 0 degrees and refrigerator 37. If that is the temperature you measure within 5 degrees it is working fine.
If you do not feel comfortable repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears Technician. You may visit
