Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Possible defrost problems

Only weeks after arrival the ball bearings on crisper broke. Drawers still worked so I worked around it. Then lettuce froze no matter where it was in the ff compartment. Then icemaker mold quit filling even though water supply was ok. Another work around by making cubes. Then started getting er ff. Called service and eventually discovered a retrofit of the air way was recommended. Worked ok for 3 days then ff compartment regularly measured 58 degrees. Finally forced replacement of fan motor, mother board, LED boards (2), ice maker, frost sensor, etc. This finally occured yesterday and it seems to be working, but I'm not holding my breath and am in a billing dispute from protection agreement people.

    They finally replaced pcb, lcd (2 boards) and they have helped but still not working consistently. Ice making still sporadic, but so far so good thanks for all the help.

Can I take the freezer door apart and wrap the water line with more insolation


No, you can't. The line goes into the mold of the machine with no access there.You have either an air leak in the dispenser area, around the ice shoot possibly, or the resevoir, which is located on the refrigerator side in the lower area behind the drawers is freezing, which is most likely the case. There are vents on the lower section for the crisper drawers. If you take out the drawers you'll find a roll of 1/4 " tubing which they call a resevoir that cools the water down. This is probably frozen,and you can insulate this, but I would raise the temperature in the fridge side or close the vents to the crisper area.

Water accumulates under the crisper drawers


You have a restricted condesate drain . You need to disassemble the rear of the freezer, defrost and clean condensate drain. Freezer probably got too cold and froze the condensate in the pan. Which means turning the thermostat to a warmer setting or recalibrating the thermastat internally to a warmer setting or replace thermostat to prevent from happenning again

Freezing my lettuce in crisper , so how do i change the temperature so my vegetables don't freeze. i do not have a producy manual.


Magtag has dropped the ball on this one... The temp at the top and the bottom of the units are varied. Try turning your temp gauge down just a fraction until the lettuce doesn't freeze. I also suggest getting a temp gauge (cheap) and placing on your top shelf to monitor. Temp should be around 40 degrees.

Refrigerator crisper drawers are freezing veggies


Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

Refrigerator has water under the crisper drawers


There is most likely a plugged drain in the freezer section. The easist solution can be to empty the refrigerator and unplug it over night. If this is not possible then the back or bottom should be removed to allow access to the drain and a hair dryer can be used to make defrosting go faster. still takes a while, if there is access in the back of the unit that can be the cause of the plug.
