Disassembled inside-Kenmore 53602

We had a fire in our home in August and our refrigerator had some smoke damage. I cleaned this thing for 4 days. But the inside had food left in it. So silly me wanted to make sure that all places of this thing was clean, so I took apart all the pieces inside of it. Now 1 month later I still can't remeber how to put it all back together. I know silly, huh? Well now my honey, is upset and I was hoping someone could e-mail me the assembly of the inside of this thing, so I can get it put back together. We don't have the owners manual cause we bought it used from a yard sale. Please, please help me. I'm pretty sure this is the model #, if not it is pretty close, they look to be the same from the pictures I have seen on the site. Thank you so very much, I'm very gratful to whom ever helps me out. Silly Silly In Indiana

Re: Disassembled inside-Kenmore 53602

You have the capability to assemble the entire refrig by roving the internet, there was one refrigerator parts site that had pictures of most of the parts of the liste model. Others will have a parts breakdown diagram indicating the general location of most parts. Also one, can order lthe service manual which has the parts listed and lists a diagramatic layout. This will make so you can reassemble unit, based on your ability to interpret the schematic layouts. Another method is to lay it out in the garage, and take a picture of it all, and including close-ups. With these photos one could instruct you to assemble unit. Regards ,,,fmauka

Kenmore elite refrigerator is not cooling, but the freezer seems to be working fine.

Kenmore Elite refrigerators come in several styles, including units with a freezer at the top and units with freezers at the bottom. The top and bottom of the fridge work on different systems. Sometimes the freezer may function perfectly, while the fridge performs poorly. Most issues with the fridge cooling are due to incorrect settings or poor cleaning practices. Checking common problems with the refrigerator will help you diagnose the situation and keep expensive repairs to a minimum
1. Check that the Kenmore Elite refrigerator is plugged in. Inspect the circuit breaker of the home if the refrigerator is plugged in but not running.
2. Pull the unit out from the wall and vacuum the condenser coils at the back of the unit.
3. Turn the temperature control in the Kenmore Elite refrigerator to the "On" position.
4. Turn up the temperature on the temperature control, located inside the unit on the wall.
5. Check the seal along the door for signs of cracks or dryness. If it is damaged, lift up on the seal to expose the screws that hold it in place. Loosen the screws and pull the seal off. Place a new seal on the unit, starting in the corners and working your way around to insert the tabs into the Kenmore Elite fridge door.

I hope i solve you problem.
Have a nice day : )

About every 4-5 days I notice water on the floor coming from under the front grille.I assume it has something to do with the defrost cycle and maybe a drain tube is clogged? I have a 25 cubic foot side by...

Yes its possible clogged drain tube will cause that, de-clogged it by using soft stick or solid wire right enough to penetrate inside the drain tube. Then clean it with water, before doing that transfer the inside of refrigerator (food, beverages, fruits,etc) get it back until you finish the job.
Good luck!

My Kenmore refrigerator got on fire.

you fridge had a shorted realy but no one knew that there was aproblem it had to defrostin prior to melting, the reason why they tripp is because most people don't bother to vacuum the condenser coils that is why they get so hot. i bet there was a clicling noise prior to that i have seen this a thousand times and everytime i look at the coils they are realy dirty specially if you keep your pets inside so that said if the 3 pin on the compressor are melted or if a new realy cant be install a new compressor has to replace and that is about 500.00 or more , call sears buy the service smart agreement from them it will be about 250 and they can install a new compressor that warranty will cover up to 500 dollars in parts and labor and you dont want to fix it they will credit 500 towards a new purchase

    Frezzer is fine but fridge is warm

    See if cold air is coming out of the air diffuser top-back freezer side of fridge. A common problem is a bad air diffuser assembly. Sometimes it may freeze closed and break when it tries to cycle. The freezer usually works fine.
