Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore 795 bottom freezer - cont.

Hi! The error code is dH with no cooling in the top compartment but I still have ice cubes in the freezer. It will re-set and show temperature in the read-out but no cooling occurs. Catriver kindly described the fusable link problem this may indicate. However I did not have the correct error code at the time. Just looking for verification before I have parts all over the kitchen. Thank you so much, Spiritcat

    I have opened the cover in back of the freezer but what is there does not look like the picture. There are no orange or brown wires nor a plastic packet. When I plug it in the little fan works. This is what is there: (Thank you so much for your help!)

Spiritcat, the sensor and fuse will be in a plastic packet tucked in on the right upper corner of the evaporator. You will have to remove the freezer back panel. It's easy to remove. The fuse should have a brown and red wire to the harness and the sensor will have 2 orange wires. You can ohm out the fuse when you unplug the harness. If it's bad you will not show any continuity. Check out this pic, then you will know what you are looking for. Catriver.

    Spiritcat, you are in by the compressor, you need to go from the front. The evaporator. The freezer compartment. The back panel will have to come off to expose the evaporator. If you have an ice-maker you will have to remove it. Catriver.

I have a Kenmore Elite 795 bottom refrigerator. I keep getting an error code r dh. I cycle the power & it goes away for approx. three days. looking for a proper fix


Defrost problem when the defrost process fails to reach the required temperature to properly de-ice the cooling coils.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/refrigerator-repair/error-codes/kenmore-refrigerator-error-codes-for-795-bottom-freezer-models.html


When you cycle the power you reset the code and it takes a day or so for the unit to cycle the defrost. Suggest that you ensure that the vents are not blocked.

Hope this helps?

Kenmore 795-75202400 icemaker problem.


Good day,
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.

I have a Kenmore model 795 77563600 refrig side


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

I have error code ER dH. Unplug and then replug


Error Code - erdh


Kenmore and LG 795 Series. Model 795.77556600 but most models use the same repair. Controller Part # 6615JB2005H

To Verify correct part. Check part number for your model number at
www.searspartsdirect.com


Don't be intimidated by this repair... The 'erdh' error code indicates - error defrost heater. Replacing the controller is EASY. The difficult part is removing everything in the freezer section to access the evaporator coil but hang in there and stay with it. You will not hurt anything if you use common sense.


The new part (defrost controller) is relatively inexpensive ranging $10 - $14. Here in the SouthWest I used Appliance Parts Depot for a $10 part cost. Don't forget to have 3-4 small wire ties to secure the defrost heater, defrost sensor and wires.


It would help to write down a few notes of some of the particulars during disassembly.


I had the same ERDH error code, and my refrigerator began to warm up. I replaced the defrost thermostat assembly part # 6615JB2005H which is located inside the freezer, on the right side behind the white plastic panel.


(See Diagram Image) I accessed it by removing the freezer door, all components inside the freezer, including the slide rails / tracks mounted on the sides of the freezer. Be careful when removing the rear white panel because an evaporator fan is mounted on the back of it and plugs into the back left side of the freezer compartment. You just saved yourself about $375 or more.

Stay With It & Good Luck!

Freezer working fine but refrigerator not cooling


Do you have the ER DH error message showing? If so, it is a failed senser, an $11.99 part that many of us are having trouble with.
