Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Posted by Anonymous on
We had a problem with a loud noise when the motor turned on. Didn't know what it was but after a week or two, the noise went away and the Refrigerator was no longer cold (even though the freezer was fine). At this point, instead of temperatures showing inside the refrigerator read out, there was an error code: ER FF. The circulator motor was no longer working. This I read was due to an ice build up which binded the motor. We shut off the unit for 24 hours to defrost it and it worked fine after that. Do this before calling a repair man for service.

SOURCE: Evaporator Motor & Fan
you can try to completely defrost the fridge by unplugging it for a day and put you groceries in another fridge, sometime ice dams build up in those and freeze next to the fan blades and cause alot of noise, if its squealing, then its the motor for sure, evaporator motors are usually pretty easy to replace once you study where its at, usually the whole top or bottom and back of freezer has to come out then the motor and fan are right there, keep the fan blade assembly because you put that on the new motor, be extremely careful once you have the bottom and sides out because the coils will be vulnerable to anything if you hit them go to www.sears.com and go to parts area, theres a sears repair store in our town , hopefully in yours or just call around, dont forget to unplug it! hope that helps

The most likely cause is a bad evaperator fan motor. It is mounted in the freezer section. It blows the air up to the ref section. Open the freezer door and listen to see if you hear any fan noise.

Hi: I've dealt with Kenmore for 30 years. Unfortunately the new model numbers don't reveal the age. I must assume it's a newer model. I'm not disputing what you said about it running all the time, but please read on. Oddly enough the new energy efficient referigators run 70 to 80% of the time. They use a smaller compressor without the big amperage start-up. The best I can describe them is that they freewheel alot. The 106......of your model number means it was built by Whirlpool. A very quite and energy efficent refrigerator. If your power bill is high get a meter from your power company, most have them. Just to double check the power consumption. Good luck Jeff

See if pressing on the back panal makes a difference and see if anything is putting pressure on the panel. If its vibration it is trial and error to get it positioned to quiet it down. If it is the bearing replacement is the cure.
