Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrig seems to be barely cooling and freezer isnt enough to keep ice from melting.

I began cleaning the dust under the unit and I thought it might have helped. I can still clean a little more. While under there, as any man that touches stuff he shouldnt I guess, I noticed a silver box with a red cam dial sticking out of it. I turned it to the right(will not go left at all) and the fan kicked on, unsure if the compressor did anything. The compressor is hot ( I did unplug the frig). All controls are on coldest position, but it is simply barely cooling. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

I don't think they want you to open the motor housing as it could cause them problems. This unit was not intended to do the job your asking it to do and you should consider a humidifier for your home or apartment. they can be added by a HVAC man and are not to expensive. I think this would help you with both your problems.

Or put some CLR threw the motor and it will clean it up.

hi there,
if u know how to work with your set u can:
1. open the back cover case of your tv and try to find a foreign objects inside and clean it up with your vacuum cleaner.
2. popping sounds sometimes due to lossen parts, bad socket contacts, too much dust and dirts ,corrosions .and when cleaning you unplug first your TV set to avoid electric shock. i hope this will help a little. Thank You.

Window unit is not draining, tray is filling with water


Remove the unit from the housing. Using a special cleaner, called coil cleaner which you can purchase at any AC shop clean the coils, this should eleminate the problem.

Focus hutning with Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 Image Stabilized


I had this problem too, then my camera started getting Error 99 (there is some problem) and not working.
If you look at this website and follow the steps under Update 2

I think you will fix your problem. The connections between lens and camera probably have a little dust in them, use a soft rubber eraser to clean them. Make sure no dust or pieces fall into the camera or lens when cleaning!

GE TFX27PF refrigerator and freezer still not getting cold enough


the partial frost pattern is an indication of low refrigerant, restriction or bad compressor. if the unit is under 5 years old this repair will probably be under warranty thru GE. if out of warranty then you are looking in most cases between 200-500 dollars for repair. good luck Thanx peyton

White spots on scanned photos


There's probably nothing you can do for dust under the glass, but in the Advanced settings for your scanner, there is an option to turn on "Reduce Dust & Scratches", with three different 'strengths'. You may want to try this to see if it helps.

Can't clean Ionic Pro CA-500 inside?


This unit is a pain in the @$$ to disassemble but it CAN be done. The way I always look at it: Someone ASSEMBLED it.

Remove the four screws on the bottom stand followed by two screws on the bottom side of the unit. Then remove the tiny little screws up each side that hold the grill together (you will need a precision screwdriver).

Carefully pull apart- don't force it.

One half comes off (clean that half) in bathtub. The other half does not come off-vacuum that half out and use q-tips.

When re-assembling, watch for two things: First the wire cleaner (that slides) runs on a track on each half- pull it out a little to best allow for fitting. Second, there are little tabs at the top that fit under the control panel-watch for those.

email me at originalpairadice@yahoo.com if any problems.
