    but why would it suddenly start working right again?

  • alan_scott Jan 16, 2009

    Mine did the exact same thing. Just discovered it a few hours ago. Freezer is warm, but refrigerator appears OK. It's running and clicking alot. I emptied it and placed an ice tray and a freezer thermometer inside. Will see what it looks like tomorrow, before the dreaded call to Sears.

A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas.
Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.
You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer.
Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.
Watch its operation more closely to see if any same symptom.

    Something (faulty thermostat, relay contacts, defrosting system, etc.) may caused abnormal operation, but by now you only have to watch its operation for a reasonable period ,to see if problem is random or repeated.

I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator that has ER 1F on the display. Where can I find a manual with error codes or can you tell me what this means?


Hello Ken;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The 1F code means there is a communication problem between the control board and the freezer fan.

Your freezer fan my have failed or it my be blocked by ice build-up.

So, It is one of these parts:
1.) Freezer fan motor
2.) Defrost heater
3.) Defrost timer.

You did not provide a model number so I can not provide you with parts numbers.

Although, I am retired, I do maintain a small customer base. If you live near Glen Burnie, MD, call me 443-306-1362

My light stayed on and melted the fixture. What would have caused this? I noticed that it is a problem with Sears Model 795.7757960


Hi, faulty or broken door (light) switch, whenever you shut ref. door light switches off, locate door switch and press/release (check) , if your light switch are o/k, always make sure ref. door are closed all the way, just a little space in door,(during night time) could keep light on. that could cause your fixture cover to melt. good luck.

Should be covered alright. Sounds like the defrost therostat is open. Is you defrost heater coming on. It doesn't seam like it is. As you frig runs it's cycle it will turn off the compressor every hour or so and the timer will turn on the heater in your freezer to defrost. Do you feel this heater coming on. If you therostate mounted on the defrost ellement fails to close then your heater will not come on and ice will build up in you freezer. These thermostates seam to be failing more and more these days. I've replaced mine 3 times over the last few years.

Sears Kenmore bottom freezer/refrig #68142model


just called in a sears technician 150 dollar bill that was an easy fix. he says my bottom freezer kenmore fridge with warm fridge problem was due to the pathway being blocked by ice and garbage which is common with these fridges. he took off cover from the fridge bottom and poured boiling water down to the freezer. try that before you replace any parts or call in a tech. next time im getting a top freezer because the blower is on the top not in the middle with the bottom freezers and thus more problem prone.

You can try to replace the relay and overload but on this model usually the compressors go bad. Call sears to check the warranty. The compressor should have a five year warranty.

Kenmore upright freezer


You should check the drain hose inside underneath the freezer.This is done at the back down below. Mine was looped too high and water could not get out. I took the loop off that was holding the hose and now water can drain away without freezing. You can pour warm water down the drain hole to melt the ice in the tube if you remove the grate covering it inside the freezer. I have read that several Kenmore upright freezer
owners have the same problem. I was astonished that this was the problem and I had put up with it for too long, defrosting the freezer every 2-3 months!.Give it a try!
