SOURCE: ice/water dispenser control panel

@ Scootertramp

You tell us about this board or that board but never tell us where to located or get at these boards. Would you please clarify that?

My ice and water started dispensing sporadically, though the lights were working fine. After I removed the kick board at the bottom, cleaned out the little connector and put it back together, nothing on the door works. All else works fine.

SOURCE: Water/Ice Dispenser buzzes loudly as soon as freezer door closes.

I am not sure what would be buzzing, but besides the parts in this area that are worked manually, this means that the working parts are not electric they are manual working parts, the parts that are electric are the lights and a switch for different ice types, if you have this option. You can remove the cover
by pushing up on the plastic plate that surrounds the ice/water area with the lights on it, on the back you will see the electric connections to the chip board, you could unplug these connections and see if the noise stops. Now every fridg is the same so make sure there are not any screws holding the plate
on before you try to push it up so it can be removed. Any questions please post back.

I had the same problem everyone else is having with my samsung model RS2534WW refridgerator. After a power outage the freezer failed but the fridge worked fine. Then another outage and both sides quit...


I had a similar problem also after a power outage, I called best buy for service and 200 bucks later it was a no go, same problem. I found a repair manual on the online auction place E b a y and was able to troubleshoot down to a faulty relay on the PCB, look there for the manual it may help you. I is not the compressor cause then the freezer would not work also.

Refer is not cooling, but freezer works OK. This happened after a 3 hour power outage.


If the freezer box is good and making ice thats dry, its an airflow issue. The reefer box section is reliant upon the freezer box section for its cold air, it has no evaporator of its own. There are 2 dials or controls one says 1-10 and has an OFF position that will shut off the compressor. The other says COLDER/WARMER and will not shut down anything except the flapper door that regulates the amount of air allowed to migrate into the reefer box from the freezer box. The normal reaction when finding a warm box is to max out both settings! 19 rather than 1 and COLDER rather than WARMER, setting. Which sounds correct, except the COLDER means colder freezer box, not reefer box, thus closing down even further the amount of air available to the reefers box. Sounds crazy and really makes a customer mad to pay $75 for a guy to turn the COLDER to WARMER and be done! Many question its accuracy , yet learn soon when the refers cold again. or they remove the back panel to see for themselves and operate the setting to see the flappers workings.

Kenmore Refridgerator/Freezer does not work.


check your damper vent door located between the fridge and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air into the fridge,also check the evaporator fan motor and make sure its operating to blow the air around the inside of the unit

Kenmore refrigerator with bottom freezer. freezer works,refrig does not. Can you help me find the problem .Also, bar between the upper doors gets real hot.


I had this problem. The Evaporator fan in the freezer was working but no air would be circulated from the freezer into the refridgerator. To test this you open the door of the freezer, and depress the door button(s) of the upper refridgerator doors so that the light extinqueshes in the refridgerator. This will engage the evaporator fan in the freezer. You can check to see if air is venting from the freezer into the refridgerator by feeling the holes at the top most part of the multi-air flow channel in the refridgerator. If air is comming out when the freezer door is open, close the freezer door and feel if air has stopped. If you have kept the upper door buttons pushed in on the refridgerator and now have the freezer door closed, you should still hear the fan running, but may have not air flow with the freezer door closed. The cause of this is the air return channel from the refridgerator to the freezer is either frozen or clogged. My return-air channel was not frozen but clogged by a residue from something that spilled inside of the bottom of the refridgerator. The return-air channel has two vents in the rear-bottom of the refridgerator that exit into the freezer behind the evaporator (cooling coils). You can't see it even if the back interior panel is removed from the freezer compartment.

The bottom line here is that if air is prevented from moving from the refridgerator, back down to the freezer, then your refridgerator will not cool, but your freezer will work just fine. You will not need to replace the fan, unless the fan is not functioning. You may need to check the dampener, to ensure that your multi-air flow channel is open - (allowing air to come into the refridgerator). The multi-air flow channel is easy to remove once all of the shelves are removed from your refridgerator. Only 2 screws holding it in (securing the center rack top and bottom). The top screw is located behind a small plastic cover that can be removed.

That's what worked for me.

My 2 month old Amana Refridgerator with Freezer on


If your sure about spoiled food. Spoiled lemons are one of the worst, and the machine has not been abused, it's a problem of the selling dealer. Fan motors have been known to create an odor when their windings start to burn. Plastic items that become detached from the interior cabinet and wind up laying on the defrost heater which gets very hot during defrost is another, however, I would demand a service call (free) since everything on it is under warranty. Make sure it's creating the odor when the tech shows up.

Kenmore Refridgerator Freezer Condensation


When I observed this issue, I found the freezer not running the defrost cycle enough times, (maybe this was in the spirit of conserving energy Energy Star compliant???))
If the Defrost is working, use the diagnostic test, that may be all you need to do until the next build up of frost on the coils.

Freezer works but refridgerator warm


you could find ice behind the back panel - worth a check. however the problem is probably ice in the return vent from fridge to freezer and the only way to cure is to switch off and leave for a day with doors open. if im right and you try this, if it re-occurs you may have a problem with the defrost system
