Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Light went out in refrigerator. Changed bulb, not the problem.

The The refer light went out in the refrigerator side of 22 cubic foot RCA side by side refrigerator. I changed the bulb, and that wasn't the problem. I checked the door light switch with a multimeter, switch is good. I checked the voltage on the switch connectors, only had 25 volts ac. I am a home owner, not an appliance tech, but I am electrically trained as well as mechanically trained. I was an electrical/mechanical technician for several years. Since I don't have a wiring diagram of the refrigerator, I don't know what to look for or where. The refrigerator model # is worn off of the id plate. All that is almost legible are the first few letters, they are MSX2E, or so they appear to be. Any ideas?

Hi, The bulb might need a quarter more turn. Sometimes the bulb feels tight but needs little more. Use a glove or towel and grasap the bulb with the palm of your hand try turning it.
Please let me know if this helps.

    Only 25 volts ? Did you try taking the hot leg to ground or another neutral? This will see if the bulbs neutral is good or not

What is the cubic feet of Kenmore refrigarator model #253.562824on and also need mearsurements of outside.


You seem to be missing a few digits in the model number. Sears Parts Direct lists 11 refrigerator models that start 253.562824. (The full models numbers have 2 extra characters, including 253.56282400 and 253.5628240N.) See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/search.html?q=253.562824 for the list of models.

Kenmore uses the 3rd digit after the decimal point to indicate the cubic footage of their refrigerators. With a 2 in that position, this model has a 22 cubic feet capacity (probably 21.6 or 22.1 cubic feet before rounding). Using the size of other models, the external dimensions will be between 30" W x 31-3/4" D x 69" H (the size of a 21 cu. ft. model) and 35-5/8" W x 28-1/4" D x 69-3/8" H (23 cu. ft. model). One current Frigidaire 22 cubic foot side by side model has the external dimensions: 33" W x 32" D x 69-7/8" H. (Note: the 253 in the model number indicates a product made by Frigidaire for the Kenmore line.) Unfortunately, I can't find the dimensions for any of 253.562824 models.

I hope this helps.

Buying a refrigerator is an issue that is too complicated to many types of refrigerators that are available today. The function of refrigerator has actually gone beyond the basic of keeping food cooled and chilled. There are features that are equipped in most advanced refrigerators now. Therefore, choosing the right one that suits your family will take some time and require some basic knowledge on refrigerators. Here are a couple of things that you need to look out when buying a refrigerator.
The first thing that you need to decide is the capacity when it comes to buying a refrigerator. The rule of thumb here is to go with the general guideline where a family of two needs at least 10 cubic feet of fresh foot storage. You can add extra cubic feet for additional person in your family. Therefore, an 18-cubic-foot refrigerator is the smallest unit that you should get for a couple. A family of four needs at least a 22-cubic-foot refrigerator. Of course, if you can afford bigger refrigerator, the better it is. But be reminded that it takes more electricity to operate a bigger refrigerator which leads to higher electricity bill.
Adding to the capacity, the size of the refrigerator is also important. The size can sometimes be a limiting factor in determining the refrigerator that you want to buy. In a case of a family that needs a 22-cubic-foot refrigerator but the space in your kitchen can only accommodate an 18-cubic-foot unit. If that is the case, you should probably make some space by removing certain items in the kitchen to fit the 22-cubit-foot refrigerator. Or else you can consider a side by side refrigerator if space is a concern. A side by side refrigerator consists of a freezer that is adjacent to the refrigerator. The advantage of side by side refrigerator is that it needs less door clearance which makes it ideal for a narrow kitchen.
Other factor to consider when buying a refrigerator is to select the type that suits your living style. There are several types of popular refrigerators in the market ranging from the commonly used top freezer, bottom freezer, side by side to the exotic French door unit. The top freezer is the most commonly seen refrigerator due to its affordability and simple design. Besides, the top freezer is also the one that has the least problem. Therefore, reliability issue seldom exists in top freezer refrigerator.
The bottom freezer model is equally comparable to top freezer but it's slightly more expensive. The advantage of bottom freezer lies in the convenience where more frequently used storages are placed at eye level. It's claimed that people with back pain problem should use the bottom freezer refrigerator to alleviate the back pain since you don't have to bend to access the food in the refrigerator.However, people will sometimes accommodate a side by side refrigerator in their kitchen. One of the reasons behind it is that, these refrigerators are often equipped with plenty of extra sophisticated features that offer loads of conveniences to its users. Other reason might be due to the exotic look of these types of refrigerators instead of the normal top and bottom freezer units.
Note, if you planned to get a refrigerator that is more than 22 cubic feet in capacity, consider one which is Energy Star qualified. An Energy Star qualified refrigerator means energy efficiency. An energy efficient refrigerator is very conservative in terms of electricity usage and it might help you to save some utility cost. One thing for sure is that you might be able to get rebates of up to a few hundred dollars for trading in your old refrigerator with a new Energy Star qualified model. A lot of utilities companies and even the local government do offer this kind of rebates. Therefore, do enquire the sales persons when you are in the stores.
All in all, buying a refrigerator is not that of a difficult task. All you need is some practice and some basic knowledge in refrigerator. Please whenever you really want to buy a refrigerator , make sure that you have done some research on the model that you are looking for ,the things that you want to look out and the cost of purchasing and the features so that when you are at the store, you will really go for your choice from your re-search.

How can I fix a dim light bulb on an ice dispenser?


The dispenser bulb looks similar to a c7 christmas bulb or night light bulb but they are not the same. The dispenser bulb on some are 6 volt and some are 12 volt. The night light bulbs are 120 volt and will light very dim. Make sure you got the correct bulb from an appliance part dealer. They will need your model number of the fridge. Or check on line parts stores like www.vvapplianceparts.com.

How to convert one foot to cubic feet


To get cubic feet, you multiply the length of each of the three sides.
So:

If something is 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 foot, that's 1x1x1=1 cubic feet
If it's 1 foot x 2 feet x 3 feet, that's 1x2x3=6 cubic feet
and so on...

What size is my Kenmore 106.56699501 refrigerator


I chatted with someone at Sears. They told me it is approx. 22 cu ft.

Alternatively, you could measure.

The first step is to open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.

Then, measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.

Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.

Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.
