Kenmore Elite side-by-side (1999 model--don't have #)

We just bought a house with a Kenmore side-by-side...we don't have the manual. The house was built in 1999 so I assume that is the year of the model. We have ice maker and water, too. The control panel is at the top of the refridg. keeps beeping ever few seconds when the doors are closed. I can't seem to adjust the temperature on the freezer side or the refridgerator. It shows -5 degrees!!! If I change it up higher it justs beeps goes back to -5. The refridg. side stays at 33 degrees and I can't adjust it, either. Is there a quick fix? Can we turn it off for 10 minutes and let it thaw out a bit and then retart?

Evaporator is probably overiced as a result od door not being completly closed at some time recently, turn off and defrost overnight with the doors open, turn on the next day and it should work ok within 24hrs. Regards Advisor

Hi, Please tell me how to change the temperature on my elite kenmore.

Klay421 --
Which model Kenmore Elite refrigerator do you have? If you have one of the older manual models, the thermostat is located inside the fridge side. If you have a newer model with digital controls you need to press and hold the the ON/OFF button for 2 seconds until the digital displays for temperature for the Freezer and Refrigerator lights. The Up/Down arrows allows you to adjust the temperature. If you are still having problems, write back. -- SWT

Moldy Ice from Ice Maker

Hi: Does it have a water filter? Sears parts is offline at the moment, so I can't tell. Most of the newer models do. The tells me that it was built in the Amana factory for Kenmore. Most likely there is a water filter in the top of the fresh food compartment. It has been growing mold in storage, and the lines too. It's on the upper right side, behind a housing with a tab to release it. Lower the housing and remove the water filter. Did you receive the bypass plug with the ref.? It looks like a large plastic wing nut with the same fitting as the water filter. If so put it in and flush the system with city water. Most city water has chlorine to clean your lines. If you install a new filter without flushing the lines it will remove the chlorine as it's supposed to do, but the lines from the filter wont get clean. If you don't have the plug, buy one. Flush the system and then install the filter. I hope this helps, Jeff
