Kenmore Elite bottom freezer drawer won't shut

I have a 3 yr old Kenmore Elite Mdl #795-75553401 with the bottom freezer. This morning, we found the freezer drawer won't shut and seal. It seemed especially apparent on the left side (as you face it), which had about a 3/4" gap. I removed the food and did not see any ice on either of the glide rails. The drawer seemed to close better w/out the food, but still didn't seem to seal. I replaced the food and was back to square one. There is about 10 - 15 lbs of food in the drawer. Any suggestions?

    Thanks. I did look back there originally, but saw nothing. For some reason, it now works. Don't know what I did. Perhaps it was some ice that melted while I was working on it.

I have a similar problem. upon close inspection, the left rail (which is a 2 part sliding mechanism) is sliding forward. The "rear" piece is supposed to stay in the back and does so by a plastic "tab" that protrudes out from a plastic rail. it had broken. when the freezer gets cold as it should, the 2 pieces of rail stick to each other instead of the forward piece sliding out and the back piece staying back. you may have to remove the door (usually 2 or 4 screws) to get far enough in to see what is going on.
hope this helps.

Has something fallen behind the drawer, and is preventing it from sliding back all the way? Remove the drawer by pulling it all the way out and lift it up and out. Look for anything that has fallen back there.

After new fridge delivered found 8 loose ball bearings in freezer compartment below drawers. Freezer draw seems to be working properly


David, very Odd, check all drawer slides if all function good and no visible missing parts missing (like one slide has bearings and one does not), a repair may have been made already and what you found is left over. Contact dealer to see what they have to say about it and ask them to make a note of it for warranty purposes.

The adjusta cube ice maker has an on/off switch. To stop the ice from overfilling and being knocked off when you open the freezer door turn the ice maker off and then back on as needed.

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.

Funny fridge noise, kenmore elite trio


I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a frog sound. I found the solution.

My model number is 596.75523400. The sound will stop when the freezer is opened. It will stop again when the freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the light. The ice drawer was full but it had stopped making ice.

Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a screwdriver.
  • Take out the two freezer baskets
  • Remove the freezer door from the two slide tracks.
  • Unplug the icemaker electric connection at the back wall. Depress the clips on the side of the plug and wiggle it loose.
  • There are 3 screws that attach the icemaker to the left freezer wall. Remove the lower screw and unscrew the top two about ½ way out.
  • Slide the icemaker up so the slots slip over the 2 screws.
  • Put the icemaker in the sink and run a bit of water on the frozen cubes until they fall out.
  • Take the screwdriver and check the water inlet hose/pipe for ice that obstructs the flow of water into the ice maker.
  • Re-mount using the 3 screws and plug in the electric connector. Make certain the water inlet tube is positioned thru the retaining hole before you remount the screws.
  • Replace freezer door and baskets.

Kenmore Elite 795 75542401


I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.
