The lights in my Kenmore Elite refridgerator won't go OFF!

The lights in the refridgerator stay ON when you close the door. I know this due to the odor of burning plastic. The plastic cover warped.

Light stays on

Check the door frame for a protruding small lever that gets pushed down when the door closes. If one is visible, that should be the light switch, which probably went bad and needs to be replaced. Without a model # hard to say how the light are set to go off, but most use the above method, hope this helps.

Kenmore elite model#5059903 the divider between the freezer and fridge gets extremely hot.

Refridgerators have coils than run thru then body of the fridge. They are there to reduce moisture and condensation. It is normal for tham to get warm and sometimes they do get hot it happens when the coil is too close to the body. Normally it only happens periodically. If it is so hot it burns or if it stays hot and dont stop than you have two options. #1 move contents of fridge to another location (back up fridge) and unplug for 24 hrs leave doors slightly open and have some towels near bottom there will be a little bit of water. Plug back in if this does not work. Contact the manufacturer and let them know. There may be a defect in the design.
