SOURCE: Strange noise when doors are closed

Is it the Kenmore French Door model made by by LG?  I have the similar LG refrigerator since 2/2007 and have had several problems with it.  The sound you hear may be  a fan motor that is failing or freezing up.  The noise will stop when you open the doors because that shuts off the fan motors. In the last two years I have had the refrigerator fan, the air channel duct, the mother board, the ice maker fan, the ice maker duct and the mother board (again) replaced (under warranty, fortunately).  After the first service call I installed a power surge protector since a component on the mother board was fried.  I think the second mother board replacement was due to a software change related to the ice maker issue.  There is also a case related to LG Energy Star ratings (that includes the Kenmore made by LG) that you can register for that is supposed to make free modifications and an ongoing rebate payment for as long as you own the refrigerator.  I found an LG service manual PDF on line (search by model number) that has diagnostic codes and test procedures that is very helpful when I need to troubleshoot and communicate with the repair shop.

SOURCE: sears trio elite ...french doors with bottom freezer

I have the same refrig. After taking the freezer basket hinges off, thinking I had to take the whole door a part to access the screws for the handle...my husband figured that the handle probably slides off...and yes that is just what it does!
Push the handle in a bit and then slide to the right. It takes a little bit of effort but that handle will come right off. Then you can tighten the screw that holds the clip in place. Then you line the handle back up to the clips, and slide to the left. Good Luck!

Well you got a kenmore that i believe is actually made by either Samsung, or LG, since Kenmore does not make any refrigerators, they are ALL taken from other name brands with the name kenmore put on the front. I would start by looking at your owners manual for troublshooting codes, but chances are you have a faulty evaporator fan motor, either the motor itsself is out of balance, or possibly ice is obstructing fan blade, and you'll need to find the source of that problem instead. hope this helps

How do i reset a kenmore elite fridge after installing a new control board?


I wouldn't think that it needs resetting?? Is the fridge not working at all now? Have a close look at the old board and the new one. Some manufacturers leave little "jumper" plugs off new boards and you have to take them off the old board and transfer them to the new one. Look very closely... They are hard to see sometimes.

I have a Kenmore Elite stainless steel three door refrigeator I bought it oct 07 at sears. This am I got up opened the refrigerator door and it was hot inside I think maybe the door was ajar over nite can...


Do you recall if the door opened easier than normal that morning? its possible, but not likely, that the door was open, but its kind of hard to make those frech doors stay open even partially. you may have a bad light switch not shutting light off. is any of the plastic around the light bulb melted?
I have to think its something with the light bulb, since you say it was hot inside. thats a far cry from the not really cold i normally hear from my customers.

some french door fridges use a sort of finger mechanism located at the top outer corner of doors, if this breaks, the doors might not close easily by themselves, or worse, not stay open. without personal inspection, i cant give definitive answer

Lights will not go out when I close Kenmore elite refrigerator


Hello John, the door switch is stuck in the on position. It may be possible to lubricate it with a squirt of PAM cooking spray, or it may have to be replaced.

Kenmore refregerator lights on/burning even doors are closed


If I understand correctly, you have the bottom freezer with the two doors that open into the fresh food section. Also you have to open one of the two doors first in order to get into the fresh food section. If i ma correct. The switch on the door you have to open first to get into the fresh food section is bad. This is why it makes not difference if you hold both in. The switch on the second door does something else. You will need to replace the switch that the first. You can test this switch by, take the switch out. They are tricky to get out. Take a putty knife and slide it under one end of the switch, push in while you are prying outward. It should pop out. There should be three wires going to the switch. One of the wires is hot (110 Volts), one goes to the fan inside the fridge and the other goes to the light. (The switch operates like this. When you close the door, it turns the light off and the fan on. When you open the door, it turns the fan off and the light on.) Once you find out which one is hot, connect one of the others to it. If the fan comes on try connecting the hot to the other wire. The light in the fridge should turn off. If so replace the switch. I hope you can understand the way I tried to explain.

Right side french door does not stay closed


I had the same problem - had my local appliance repair shop come by - simple releveling of the unit such that it is tilted slightly back re-establishes things so that the doors will cloe and pull themselves closed. The gaskets are actually magnetized. If the leveling is correct - even upon closing the left door - forcing enough pressure to push open slightly the right side - it will draw itself back in.
