Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to clean the coils underneath the fridge? I have used an attachment on the vacuum, but it does not reach the coils toward the middle-to-back half of the unit.
My kenmore elite is beeping it stops after I reset then fridge side lights turn off then the alarm goes off again and power failure light flashs

The best way it to buy a coil brush and use your vacuum as you clean. A coil brush is long and skinny and can be bent to reach in tough spots. Some people will blow it out with an air compressor but it is very messy.

Short of having a long, thin spiral coil-cleaning brush, you can improvise a cleaning device. Wrap several damp paper towels around the handle of a mop or broom (If you can find a pole that's thinner and more flexible, use it); secure in place with a rubber band. Remove your front grill from the fridge -- along the bottom (a good, even tug should do it). Get down level with the bottom of the fridge so you can see inside and gently maneuver the pole along the coils. (Put down a mat or towel and just lie on the floor. Seriously.) Change the paper towels as they get too dirty to pick up. Do this once a year, or more if you have pets as dust and hair can not only affect operation but reduce energy efficiency as well.
