Kenmore Elite refrigator side by side Model # 10655602400

Purchase a Kenmore Elite refrigator side by side Model# 10655602400 7/01/2005. No problems until this year '07' The freezer is frosting up and we had to defost it a couple of times. Sears' repair guys come out and change the theromostates and also put some kind of stainless steal rod to hang down into the drain well at the bottom of the freezer. The guy said the drain freezes up and this prevents air circulation into the refrigator side of the unit. However, my vegetables are frozen, so air is circulating. The freezer reads below -30 degrees and I have frost on the other side (milk side) of the refrigator. Tomorrow the Sears'repair guy is coming out again! (4th time) I bought their extended service warranty for $219.95 for one year only! Can this problem be fixed?

Boomdog, the problem with your fridge is the temperature control board (where you adjust temps at in the fridge section). I serviced one of these just this week for the same problem! It's working fine now. They'll need to bring a control board with them to finish this job. The part number for it is #8201659. Be glad you won't have to fork over the cash to buy it, the retail cost is ~$165.00. Unfortunately, all of my vendors tell me this board is a factory backorder item. Maybe Sears will have it, maybe not. Also, after the repair is complete, please connect your computer controlled appliance up to a quality surge suppression/arrestor device. We highly recommend this one...

I have a new Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #795.71083. Can you tell me how much space I should have on either side of the refrigerator and the top to allow airflow? I did not see anything in the...

You really don't need to much space, on that refrig the air comes in on one side at the bottom and comes back out on the other side on the bottom.That is why it is important to keep the front grill clean.Hope this helped.

Both freezer and refrigerator are warm and fan is running and compressor is hot

check model number. if the first 3 numbers are 106. this is a whrilpool made refrig. they have a lot of start kits going bad, It consist of a relay, overload and a relay. you need to replace all three. you can purchase a 3 in1 start kit that will work on all the home refrigs. Check local refrig parts house. usally the small hp kit is fine.

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.,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.

Kenmore Elite refrigerator stops cooling - Relay keeps cycling

the relay on the compressor is most likely the culprit part# 8201786 you can buy it at the local sears parts and repair center it is very easy to replace it. your refrig compartment will start warming up soon. to prevent damage to your compressor probably a good idea to unplug the refrig until you get the part replaced..
