79577563600 defrost reset

My Kenmore elite model # 79577563600 is leaking water into the bottom freezer compartment and is now leaking out of the bottom of the unit. I was told to do a defrost reset but cannot find specific info on that. now this morning I woke up to it making a loud humming noise that stops as soon as I open the doors and begins again when the doors are closed.

As for the water part sounds like the drain is pluged.most of these drains have a trap.just like your sink only a lot smaller,and get alge growing in them.to clean you must remove the lower back wall of the freezer,drain hole will be at the bottom of the drain pan below the coils,be very careful not to make a hole in the coil or it WILL cost you.i use a ball pien hammer and flat tip screwdriver to remove all the ice i can.then i have a squirt bottle that can make a stream and a rubber hose that will go down the hole,5-16 fits a lot.HOT water in bottle down the hole.hose in hole,blow,no good?pull water out with mouth,blow into pan,repeat.may take a few times,may take an air tank.if not cooling good you may find the coils are frosted up, no defrost!could have evap. fan staled.that will give the drain issue.if this is the case you need to call for help.hope this helps.

You are probably correct that it is the evap motor. If you are seeing frost on the back wall then there is probably some ice built up around the motor and the fan blade is hitting it.
Try defrosting the freezer and look very closely all around the seal for the freezer drawer. It is common for moisture to freeze in the self closers in the drawer rails and not let the drawer close completely on one side or the other. If this happens the small gap will allow the freezer to frost excessively.
Sorrry to be slow in responding. I have been very busy this week and have not been on line very much.

SOURCE: Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

Hi It sounds like the evaporator fan. It could be hitting some frost on the evaporator coil. Remove the rear panel inside the freezer section and see if something is in the fan blade or if frost is building up on the coils. If there is frost (more then just a thin film) you might be having a defrost issue.
please let me know what you find so I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Our kenmore elite bottom freezer is making a loud

Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.

Cleaned the freezer and reloaded...no hum..at least for now.

My Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refrigerator model 795.75552401 is leaking water. Ice has built up under the drawer in the bottom of the freezer and water leaks out onto the floot


rewrwer
Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.

In addition, your drain tube maybe clogged

1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator


Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Kenmore Elite Bottom Freezer Mod. #795 75544401


The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.
