Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
Display read -88 88 and then usually switches to read -22 22. Filter reset and lock red lights stay on. Buttons do not operate and while in this default mode cold air is continually blowing into frig section. This freezes food in frig section. function returns to normal after several hours.
If the control will not change and the lock is lit, first try unlocking it. Press and hold the lock tab for 3 seconds. If nothing happens, try unplugging the power cord for 30 seconds and reconnect it. This will reset the board.

My Kenmore Elite (Model 795.7755 3600), less than two years old, had
the same problem. One morning I opened the doors to a hot fridge and
burning plastic. The light housing was sizzling hot - much of the unit
literally melting away. Another hour or two and it could have been
Called the 1-800 number listed in the fridge. After about 45 minutes of patient talking, I learned that Sears (or Kenmore) have issued what they refer to as a "flash warranty) on the light fixture kit (Kit # 6871JB1423N) which in effect, for this part only, extends the factory warranty from one year to three years. I may even be able to have a factory tech install the parts. Hope it works out.
Bottom line: if you have this fridge, be very careful and monitor closely. An pursue the part warranty!

If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running.
First, answer these questions:
Is the refrigerator completely dead?
If so, see “It's stopped completely.”
The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
The overload, relay, or capacitor
The defrost timer
The condenser fan motor
The freezer and the fridge are cooled by the same system, air is moved to the fridge by a fan from the freezer, either the circulation fan is defective or the fridge thermostat is defective.
Don't forget to rate;

Either the water valve opens to fill the ice maker cavity, and doesn't shut off soon enough, causing the ice maker to overflow.
Normal file time is approx. 7 seconds.
This is the most common problem.
As well, it is possible the micro switch in the ice-maker that tells the valve to open and close has malfunctioned.
This is all based on the fact that the freezer maintains a normal temperature.
To test the freezer for consistency, place a plastic glass in the freezer half full of water.
Check it in 8 hours. It should be frozen solid. Then place the glass in a plastic bowl, and lay the glass on it's side. Recheck in 24 hours. The ice should remain in the glass.
If not, there is a problem with the refrigeration system.
