How do i get a gasket replaced on a sears kenmore freezer model 31165


Order the new gasket using your model number- 31165 is not a valid/complete model. Remove the door and lay it flat on the floor, then remove the screws from the upper half of the door perimeter- DO NOT remove all the screws at once or you will be unhappy! Pull the top half of the old gasket away from the door, then put the top half of the new gasket in place and screw it back down. Next, remove the bottom half of the screws and pull the old gasket off, then put the bottom half of the new gasket in place and screw it down. If you try to do it all at once, the door will flex out of plane and won't lay flat when you re-attach it. You might need a hair dryer to soften the gasket if it was deformed during shipping. If you have a newer, press-fit style gasket, just yank it and press the new one in... Door Gasket 241872513

How do I repalace a door seal on the Kenmore refrigerator?


Remove the door makes the job easier. Using a table lay the door with door seal in the upright position. Pinch and pull the door seal over to one side to expose the door seal screws. Remove screws and gasket/ seal and install the new door seal in the reverse order.

CAN I HAUL MY FRIDGE LAYING DOWN?


Yes. Lay it back side down only, after taping all shelves and loose items inside. It's not a bad idea stand it up several hours before pulgging in if possible to allow any internal oil in the sealed system to return to where it all belongs. (NOTE: often times the manufacturers will have refrigerators or freezers laying down on top of other refrigerators in their delivery trucks.)

Kenmore top freezer. Bought it from a lady. Only


Was the fridge layed down when moving ? If so , did you let it stand for 24 hrs before plugging it in ? If you layed it down and didn't wait to plug it in , it's no good .
If you did not lay it down , remove the back panel and see if the compressor is running . If the compressor is hot but not running ,possible overload/relay bad . This is the piece that plugs onto the compressor . Also check that the fan that cools the compressor is working .If you remove the inside freezer panel , check to see that the freezer fan is working . Check to see if the coils are getting a light coat of frost on them .

Refrigerator not cooling


the clicking sound you can hear is the relay or clixon as sometimes it is known by trying to start the compressor it may be stuck,first turn off the power to the refridgerator then turn the fridge so that you can see the motor,on the side of the motor you will see a small plastic cover remove it to expose the relaly remove it by pulling it towards you exposing 3 pins in a triangle shape give it a shake to free the solenoid inside the relay relace in the same way you took it off power up the fridge listen to see if you can hear the motor run constanly if it just starts and then goes of its more than likely the compressor is us

Icemaker makes a constant creaking noise. Stops only when freezer door is opened.


Thanks Clint!

Here are the parts required for this repair; The IM is here and the water valve is here. If you have a local appliance parts retailer, they should have these in stock.

You'll need to lift the freezer drawer off of the rails and set it aside. I always use a towel to lay on the freezer floor at this point... now, you'll need to be laying inside the freezer. With a 1/4" nut driver (or socket, 8" extension and ratchet), remove the 3 screws holding the IM to the wall. Drop the IM down and disconnect the wiring harness from the rear wall. Pull the white front cover off of the old IM and put it on the new one.The new IM can now be installed in reverse order and the freezer drawer can be hung back on the rails. That's it for the IM!

Now for the valve... Pull the fridge out, unplug it and turn off the water at the wall valve. See where the water hose connects to the fridge? That's the valve in question. Remove the metal grill and the cardboard. Now remove the water hose from the valve. Then remove the screws mounting the valve to the fridge. OK, now you have it in your hand. The tubing on the old valve may be connected differently than the new valve.

Hold the old and new valves side by side and compare them. The new valve doesn't have threaded connections for the tubing. The tubing just pushes into their respective slots. Since this is the case, just cut the tubing from the old valve as close to the valve as you can. Then all you have to do is install the tubing and the wire harness into the new valve and rebuild/re-mount every thing. Don't forget to turn the water back on at the wall and check for leaks before you push the fridge back into place, OK?

There ya go! The IM should have your Ice bin filled up within 24 hours. Hope this helps. If so, don't forget to rate the solution.
