SOURCE: Foul rotting vegetable type odor in top of Kenmore refrigerator

If the icemaker motor or heater short out it will cause a foul odor. I have never heard it described as cooked broccoli, but it can be pretty bad. Remove the icemaker and inspect the bottom of it where the heater element is and remove the white cover of the motor and look in there. You can take the three screws out of the motor module and see if anything is burned on it.
If you can rule out the icemaker, the next things to check would be the evaporator fan motor and defrost heater. Generally, if a fan motor starts causing an odor it will stop running completely and if a defrost heater goes out it will quit defrosting. It is possible, but unlikely, that something has gotten into the evaporator area and is sitting on the defrost heater so that it is "cooking" during the defrost cycle.
Check the icemaker first, it is the most likely cause of the odor. Post back with complete model number if you need further assistance and we will go through checking everything else.

SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

SOURCE: kenmore elite refrigerator, model # 59676534500

I went ahead and signed up for Sears' service warranty since I knew I had to get someone to come out.  IT costs $200/yr.  They say it covers everything, but when the technician came out, he told me that it just covers $500 per visit.  He said that a new motherboard and the labor alone was going to make it $498.  Anyway,   he had ordered a new motherboard. Apparently the motherboard wasn't working.  It is located in the back bottom left side of the refrigerator behind the panel.  There is a compartment on the lefthand side that slides out and houses the motherboard.  He put that in and also had to fix the fan that is in the back of the freezer.  That fan is the one that sends cool air up to the refrigerator part. When I had looked at the fan before the repair man came, it was not moving at all.  So at least take a look at the fan in the freezer.  Just take out the freezer drawers, and the fan is located in the top center of the freezer behind the compartment cover.  Maybe that's the problem with your refrigerator, the fan.  Hope that's all it is. Good luck!

SOURCE: 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 fridge model 59667953602 - can't get the fridge light cover off - looks like a very long, small diameter bolt hole at the back of the cover and feeling the exposed small encasement at the back


For the 596.67953602 refrigerator, you need to slide the refrigerator light cover towards the back of the unit to disengage the cover from the bracket. To remove the freezer compartment light cover, it depends on the model. For the models with a freezer drawer, you need to press forward on the tabs at the back of the cover. Then pull the cover down. For the models with a freezer door, you need to squeeze the shield at the back and pull it towards you. Then pull down on the cover. The freezer bulb cover can be hard to remove if the top shelf or basket is in the freezer. This is shown in the manual on page 16. Sears Parts Direct has the manual on the product support site: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/59667953602-kenmore-parts-manual?manualIndex=0 . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0807227.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have a twenty plus year old 18 cu ft model (top freezer style) and the 40 watt light went out. I replaced the light, but new bulb does not work. Is there a reset button??


two possibilities

1)the door switch is defective and not sending power to light socket

2) the small tab in the light socket is not contacting the bulb (the tab contacts the bulb at the bottom of the bulb) i have found that to be the case numberous times and what i have done to fix it is UNPLUG THE REF then have taken a small flatblade screwdriver and bent the tab so it makes better contact with the bulb since the cold temps will over time cause the metal of the tab to deform

How to change a bulb in the Kenmore refrigerator


Most likely, you never notice the light bulb in your freezer or refrigerator until it is not working. Then it is time to replace the bulb. This is especially important with freezers, which are often in areas with poorer lighting, like basements or garages. Fortunately, the task is a simple one.
Instructions

1 Unplug the freezer to prevent an accidental shock when you remove the light bulb.

  • 2 Open the door of the freezer, look at the top inside edge of the freezer, below the door seal and back about 1 to 2 inches from the edge. You will see a small plastic or metal panel that protects the bulb from damage and shields your eyes from the direct light of the bulb when the door is opened. Reach behind the guard and remove the bulb by twisting it to the left.
  • 3 Put your new bulb in by inserting it into the socket and twisting it to the right to screw it in. Be sure you use a freezer bulb--it is built a little tougher and is the correct wattage. You can find them at appliance or hardware stores. Plug the freezer back in to test operation of the bulb.

  • Have a nice day! : ))

    Kenmore coldspot - How do you remove the ice maker box to clean


    I have the exact same Kenmore and exact same model #77292798. It's the top freezer model with ice maker. Here's what I did:

    Empty everything in the freezer.
    Turn water to ice maker off from source behind unit.
    Remove bottom panel (two screws)
    Every screw in the freezer is the exact same size. I used a screwdriver style socket and, I think
    this works the best.
    Remove ice maker (4 screws) and unplug from socket.
    Remove rear panel (2 screws).

    My freezer was loaded with ice underneath the bottom panel. The ice scraped away easily. There is a tin pan underneath the coils that drains toward the middle where the drain hole is. Again, my freezer was full of ice beneath this tin pan and, I had to scrape away. You may be tempted to try and remove the coil because it would be easier to get to drain hole. I tried this and, it did no good. Don't try it. Once all the ice was scraped away, I realized that the drain hole was plugged with ice. I used boiling hot water and used a squeeze bottle to pour the hot water into the drain hole. I then wrapped a paper towel around a thin screwdriver and used that to soak up the now cold water in the drain hole. After doing this a dozen times or so, the drain finally cleared.

    Then, reassemble. This was a much easier task than I thought it would be and, will take care of it much quicker next time.
