SOURCE: Kenmore Trio lights staying on melting the bulb housing

Thanks, FixYa, for posting this problem. My husband and I were about to buy one of these and were able to save ourselves a headache. We found out some updated information obtained from Sam, a lead tech at the national Kenmore service center, 888-536-6673:

There are 4 potential manufacturers of this fridge type, only 1 of which made the faulty part, which was apparently finally recalled last month. You cannot tell the manufacturer by the brand name, only by the first 3 digits of your trio fridge's MODEL number (usually listed somewhere on the fridge as well as on the printed manual you received at the time of purchase):

795 -- LG Korea -- some fridges affected, determined by SERIAL number
596 -- Amana/Whirlpool -- not affected
464 -- Maytag -- not affected
106 -- Whirlpool -- not affected

If you have a model number beginning with 795, call Sam or his colleagues, reference the service flash sf46-515, and have them look up your fridge by serial number to determine whether your fridge contains the recalled part. Good luck to all of you, and thanks again!

Lights would not go off on my Kenmore Elite model #79577253601. light housing melted. Replaced housing and lights and again will not go off.

The door switch controls the light, and it should turn off power when the switch is depressed by the door. If it does not, it needs to be replaced.

My kenmore Elite Trio lights didn't go off, it burned the light assembly in the refrigerator part. The bulbs turned dark and it melted the assembly a bit, the cover won't stay on. can I install a whole...

This will possibly fall in the class of models that were under recall. My advice is to contact Sears and the CONSUMER ALERT Remove your lighyt bulbs and prepare for a disgusting attempt for settling this. I am not telling you you this for any good rate or a bad rate. LG and Maytag made these for Sears and the name then changed to Kenmore Elite Trio. I would like you to visit my web page and do a little reading of our posting's here at Fixya over the past couple years. Wish I had a solution but feel it is my responsibility to inform you. Thank You for Understanding, Sea Breeze

Kenmore Elite Trio Frige...Beeping three times in a row suddenly

this unit has a history of the light circuit failing and it will cause the lights to either stay on or off. if they stay on, it will melt the housing around the upper bulb area. it has a recall and should be covered by sears for no charge. it is the control board failure and has a sticking relay for the light circuit, needs board replaced.
the 3 beeps are the unit thinking it has a door open. turn off the alarm on the door control board and call sears 800 # for repair.
