My Kenmore Trio has twice, separated by a period of months, had a warm fridge compartment and frozen freezer compartment. Following the samurai's warm fridge diagnosis chart, I am led to believe that it is an air circulation problem. Both times it has been fixed by moving all the food to the spare fridge and turning off the Kenmore overnight. Presuably we are letting a frost blockage in the ducts clear.

So, the question is, is there anything I can repair such that the ducts don't get blocked by frost every few months?

I believe we found frost on the food in the freezer before the second time this happened, meaning we left the freezer slightly open overnight. Is it more likely that the blockage happened *only* because we left the freezer slightly open? I would think that the light layer of frost we find on the food wouldn't be enough to shut down ductwork if it was clear to begin with ... so I'm thinking that there was already a layer of frost in the ducts and leaving the door open added enough more frost to cause the blockage. Am I on track here, and if so, what do I do to prevent the slow buildup of frost?

Obviously the first step is to be more vigilant about making sure the freezer is closed properly every time.

... meaning we left the freezer slightly open overnight.

by leaving the Door open, the Evaporator Coils in the Freezer will overly-frost and prevent air-flow to the Fridge
