SOURCE: Doors creak loudly when closed and pushed from the outside. Don't when open.

This short solution may help solve your creaking problem. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly. Putting vaseline insid the hinge pins too is a good idea.
Let me know if I can assist you better, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer door does not close all the way


Remove the tray, pull door all the way out and check to see if it is spare. Sometimes the gears jump causeing one side to seal and the other dosent. If that is the issue, use pressure to square door

My kenmore elite side by side is making a buzzing


The buzzing noise is likely coming from the main power board and will need to be replaced.

Our kenmore elite bottom freezer is making a loud humming noise. It shuts off when door is open..and continues when door is shut. Temperatures are fine, no error message, it rarely stops..like it is trying...


Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.

Cleaned the freezer and reloaded...no hum..at least for now.

Water/Ice Dispenser buzzes loudly as soon as freezer door closes.


I am not sure what would be buzzing, but besides the parts in this area that are worked manually, this means that the working parts are not electric they are manual working parts, the parts that are electric are the lights and a switch for different ice types, if you have this option. You can remove the cover
by pushing up on the plastic plate that surrounds the ice/water area with the lights on it, on the back you will see the electric connections to the chip board, you could unplug these connections and see if the noise stops. Now every fridg is the same so make sure there are not any screws holding the plate
on before you try to push it up so it can be removed. Any questions please post back.
