Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a kenmore side by side that won't make ice. I've done all the checks and found it to have 57 volts. What causes low voltage to the input line?

A icemaker wont run unless it's 0 or below in freezer so thats to start / now since i'm not there to check it for you the best way for you is to add 8oz water to it and wait 24 hours, if it push the ice out into the bucket at that time and don't refill with water then you have a bad valve ,,, if it don'tdump the ice then it's the icemaker / if you have the one that the dispenser bucket sets on the door then you have eather a frozen water line, infer red boards or icemaker.

May sony tv has sound when you turn it on but no picture


If the problem is same with different input devices and you have ensured the are no loose contacts in power outlet, RC jack, cable and sockets, the TV needs servicing.

How to Trouble shoot Low Voltage Controls on AC-Heat


What I have always been told is if your 24 volt side burns out check the high volt side if the hi volt side burns out check the low volt side.

A quick way if the primary side is burning out due to a problem with the low volt side:
1* Mark all the thermostat wires at the indoor unit.
2* Disconnect them at the indoor unit.
3 Check main line voltage before proceeding (A on electric furnaces, 208 volt is not considered 220V and 240v Is not considered 208V. In these circumstances the voltage may have changed with the power company replacing a transformer and now you need to change the main power input lines at your control transformer for the correct operating voltage). If OK then proceed:

4 If you have an amp meter attach it to one of the lines going to the transformer.
5 Apply main power and listen for hum, note if smell starts again and if so problem has to be in board or main incoming voltage too high or too low. Amp draw should be less than 3 amps.
6 If your to this point and still haven't found any trouble in the above as of yet, Connect the wire marked "C" together. Then just touch the thermostat wires one at a time to the places where they go on the indoor unit and watch the amp meter. If you don't see the meter jump the circuit is probably OK but leave them disconnected until you touch all of them to the correct place or wire. Here is a possible problem I have seen a thermostat wiring problem if the wires are stripped too far and a "whisker" of the wire sticks out and allows one of the other wires to cross short out. In this case just cut off the excess wire or bend it over out of the way and continue with the test. You can always cut it off later after the tests. If you see the meter jump up and stay up and /or blows the fuse the wire that you used and it blew is where to concentrate.

(* you may need to reattach the wires at the indoor section then disconnect them at the Thermostat and then at the out door unit if you have not discover the cause at this point or after finding the wire(s) that cause the Spike on the AMP meter. Just take your amp meter with you and reconnect the "R" wire first and check it first. after that if nothing shows at each place connect the "R" back and proceed with touching each other wire individually while amp reading the "R" wire).

7 No wiring problem found means that you could have a relay or contactor not pulling in properly.
and this will cause the amp draw to go way over the transformers power out put or VA rating.
8 Inspect the thermostat wiring for the "whisker" I mentioned above.
9 If you have done this to the end of the thermostat wires and your main incoming voltage is correctly wired in on the transformer and your relays and contactors are pulling in evenly and not delaying excessively your problem should be fixed.

If this helps you please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fix ya.

Water drips slowy into the ice maker causing it to freeze as it comes out of the water line, and then when the ice maker ask for water, it can't fill due to frozen ice at the input hose. How do I make it...


repair or, replace the the electromagnetic solenoid water valve that supplies the icemaker located on the back right corner of the refrigerator where the clear plastic supply tube enters the machine from the house water line

Kenmore fridge and freezer not cooling


Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.

No 110 volt to icemaker


additional info:
it has an infrared beam, so on both side walls has an eye. Also on the right side there is an on/off switch.
Apparently the eyes work Ok because pilot light blinks when the door is open and is solid when I move the plastic arm that cuts the beam.

If you have a voltmeter and some tech savvy, you could check the output voltages (voltages which run the VCR circuitry, motors, etc.). You should find a +5 volt, +12 to 14 volt, possibly a -35 volt (for the display if it has one). If these are missing, then the unit will be utterly dead. Check the fuse: If blown, check associated circuitry on the primary (line voltage) side. The fuse almost always poofs for a reason, and until the bad components are found, it will blow again, perhaps causing more component damage. The switching transistor may be shorted, plus nearby resistors/diodes/capacitors poofed/shorted/defective. In many VCRs I've worked on, a capacitor on the primary side will fail, and cause a dead condition, sometimes causing the noted transistor to short. A thorough check is highly suggested. It isn't fun to install new parts, only to have them poofed by a yet remaining problem somewhere. Common failures on the secondary side (where the voltages noted above are rectified, filtered), are the electrolytic capacitors. Common values here are 1000MFD/16 volt, 1500MFD/10Volt, 2200MFD/10volt or close. Many of the older VCRs pre-90's developed this problem.
