Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hot high side assembly and at the front door section

Kenmore refridgerator purchased in1996. Recently the noise level increase and had a different sound (akin to a rough bearing) this noise disspeared after a couple of days and returned to a normal operational sound. No change was detected in the cooling capacity.
A short time later we felt a hot section when we opened iether door which conducted from the front central partition between the freezer and refridgerator compartments.
I remover the back cover with power on, the top side assembly, Compressor? and fan motor were very hot to the touch and I never saw or heard the fan workng over several minutes observation. The top section of the freezer compartment has since lost some of its cool and we have removed the food. The fridge section is holding temperature.

    Which direction does the air flow across the condenser?

    Is it "In" at the front bottom grill and out at the back or "In" at the back of the refridgerator and "Out" hot/warm at the front.Or does it matter?

My Fender Hot Rod deluxe makes a popping noise when switching back to the clean channel.


This is because your clean channel only runs through the pre-amp section, requiring an increased volume level to match that of the volume of the drive section which is overdriven by the pre-amp circuit. my suggestion is to use lower volume level on the clean channel of the amp. To get any volume boost you may need to match the two channels you could use a signal/volume booster or overdrive pedal between your guitar and amp input, switching it off and back on when you switch back and forth between channels.

Kenmore front load washer goes through wash and rince cycles but will not spin


These are symptoms of a broken door lock and switch assembly and the only viable solution is replacing the said assembly if no issue is found with the wire harness connections. The machine will not advance to the spin cycle unless the door lock spin switch is activated. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening and avoid injuries during the high-speed cycle. Replace the door lock and switch assembly and it should solve the problem. Click on the link below for the detailed instruictions on how to replace the door lock and switch assembly. The part number for the door lock and switch assembly of your machine may be different but the instructions still apply.

Door not closing properly


Hi: The Kitchenaid refs. us a gravity close along with the magnets in the door seals. Magnets getting weak seals getting old and what you told me you checked can cause this. The easy fix is to raise the front of the fridge by lowering the front wheels. Pull the grill off the front and find the leveling screws (usually labeled.) Raise the front of the fridge until the doors swing shut with a gentle push. Before you replace the grill make sure the fridge dosn't rock side to side as you want it even. This is what they call leveling a fridge. Not cabinet level. Just sturdy. Hope I helped, Jeff

Ice maker not working


I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

Freezer works but refridgerator warm


you could find ice behind the back panel - worth a check. however the problem is probably ice in the return vent from fridge to freezer and the only way to cure is to switch off and leave for a day with doors open. if im right and you try this, if it re-occurs you may have a problem with the defrost system
