Newer kenmore elite trio refridgerator not cooling

I have a Kenmore (model beginning with 596). For the past several days it has mode a noise every two or three minutes that lasts for 10 seconds, then shuts off again. I thought nothing of it, but this morning I noticed everything in the freezer was thawed, and the fridge section is not very cool either. Any suggestions? Help?

    I have the same problem and YES it is the compressor. Had a repairman come to the house. He advised me to just get a new refrigerator. Not very happy as it is only 4 years old. Won't make the mistake of buying a Kenmore anymore

    I have a Kenmore Elite Trio purchased in 2003 Model# 59673503200 with the same issue. I hear a clicking sound every 10 min or so and then nothing happens, compressor does not turn on. Both Freezer and Frig are not getting cold. Fan is running and I cleaned out the condensor. I am awaiting repair persons diagnoses.

The repair person came and in my case it was a start capacitator connected to the compressor. When he replaced the start capacitator the compressor came on immediately and started working. The charge $ 240 (Flat Rate) for the fix. The repair person told me its a universal start capacitator which I found online for $29. Worth trying to fix yourself before paying $240 if your a handy person.

There are a number of things that can be at fault but the onlt thing you can try is check and see if the condensor under the fridge behind the front kick plate is plugged with dust . this neads to be cleaned at liest four time a year depending on how dusty its getting . also enshure the fan that circulates air around this condensor can be heard running with the compressor. short of all this you should have it looked at by you local repairman. use the recomended woranty repairman only. hope i was of help . post feadback thanks

This happened on my side-by-side. There is a damper at the inside top of the refrigerator compartment that was failing to open to allow cold air in. I took the cover off and propped open the damper while I ordered the part and waited for it to arrive. Problem solved and hope to keep it running another few years.

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling


There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.

Error message


Hello gravyblast.
Welcome to Fixya.


You said, your Kenmore Elite Trio, model 795.7756 or 7757 has an error message simply reading ER IF. No pressing of buttons, or combination thereof changes anything. Also, the ice maker has stopped working although it is turned on.
Can anyone help?
I cannot pull the refrigerator out to unplug and reboot it, thus I don't know what to do.

Try tripping the breaker off for 5 minutes and then see if this method resets the system?
Do not turn it back on for at least tree minutes. That's why I said, Five!!!

Lets see how it resets while I look your fridge up.
Write back. Huuum
