Kenmore dehumidifier compressor on but doesn't collect water

clean the condenser in the front or the filter if it has one. no air flow to cool it down will result in overheating and no condensation collection across the evaporator coil.

Kenmore model 721 850 the cooling fan doesn't run all the time

This could be due to a intermittent micro switch, or a faulty cooling fan. This is critical in keeping the magnetron cool when cooking.

Kenmore model 253.5569400 will usually have the fan motor. There is no reset button and about the only way to check it is to take it out and then apply voltage to it.
Remember the fan doesn't run all the time, if the compressor is on then it should be turning.

I have a Kenmore Dehumidifier the fan will run for a while and then stops. I greased the fan motor it ran for a while and then stopped. My feeling is the fan motor bearing has loosened and as the motor...

does the motor feel extremely hot? how free are the bearings? Is there any squeaking when the fan turns? any resistance at all? If you have a problem with the bearings then change them that would cause the thermal overload to trip in the motor to unsure it doesn't burn out.

My fridge is making a lot of noise. It does not stop. What might the problem be? Model# 2539668010 Serial# BA62202425

This is a basic no frills refrigerator so that things that can make a lot of noise is limited. And where you say it doesn't stop, then it is most likely a fan. You have two one in the freezer compartment that could have accumulated some ice on the blades which could through it out of alignment. So it might be hitting the sides of the case.

The other fan is underneath your cabinet, and blows air across the compressor, and condenser coil. If there is a lot of lint or debie in this area then the fan blades could be come coated and then the out of balance condition could cause noise.

If a cleaning doesn't fix the problem then you will probably have to replace the fan blades and motor.

Model580.73189300 was running all day I shut off for an hour, turned back on,it made a noise like a slow groan then stopped working power is on but fan doesn't run

I wonder if your fan is not gummed up badly and needs oiling? Or maybe it has burnt out. There also could be a fuse related to that as I have seen in some models.

Id open the cabinet and inspect the fan perhaps.

The fan will not engage when unit is turned on and after 5 or so minutes the circuit breaker trips.

since the fan doesn't run - the compressor heats up and pulls excessive amps and trips the breaker.
99 out of 100 times your fan motor will be bad.
You need to replace the motor.

Kenmore 721 microwave fan turns on by itself

I have the exact same problem with my Kenmore Microwave model 721 that we bought in October of 2005. The Fan will just randomly turn itself on even when we are not cooking. It has been doing this for the last few months and is starting to become more frequent. There is no way to turn it off except to unplug it for several hours.
Was there a recall for this defect ?

the fan should be on anytime the cmressor it running. T would need some more info to help you out more. If you can check to see if the fan is off when the compressor is or is the cmpressor running but not the fan at times. that would help in fixing your problem. get back to me with it if you can. thanks
