The fridge will not run like that no, and yes you have to follow the scematic and find out if the door switches are good

Have you tested the outlet? The power cord itself could have a broken or burned wire. Even if boards are bad, there should be lights.

Elite trio, 795.755 Refrigerator light stays on, getting hot. Refrigerator space warming up to 45 degrees. Pressing in both door switches gives no clue. Both feel smooth.


Some of these Kenmore Elite refrigerators built by LG have a design defect that has been the subject of a class action settlement. The interior lights stay on even if the doors are shut, turning the refrigerator interior into a version of the child's Easy Bake oven toy. There are many cases where plastic interior parts of the refrigerator got so hot they melted. I replaced the 60W incandescent bulbs with 7 Watt LED bulbs just in case. The LED bulbs will not get hot enough to harm anything even if left on indefinitely.
This model also has problems with the wires inside the door (water dispenser side) The wires break inside the door and are not replaceable. I ran new wires through the interior and bypassed the broken wires to avoid buying a whole new door.

Lights would not go off on my Kenmore Elite model #79577253601. light housing melted. Replaced housing and lights and again will not go off.


The door switch controls the light, and it should turn off power when the switch is depressed by the door. If it does not, it needs to be replaced.

Light bulbs staying on and melting plastic


Hi, I've seen quite a few of these unit's either with the "kenmore" badge or the actual maker, LG/Samsung. The problem either lyes in the door switch being faulty, or the relay on the main control board at the back. If your's has reached the point of melting all the interface control, light cover and housing, that's unfortunate. The new light socket's and deflector comes with the rework kit which includes a limit/cut-out bi-metal wired into light assembly to insure it win't re-occur. The bi-metal will shut the light off if it stick's "on". The main board should also be replaced. I'd suggest you consider hiring a pro appliance tech. You may also consider contacting Sears to inquire about any possible warranty. Hope that help's. Please take a second and rate the info provided to you here at fixya. Thank you and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Kenmore Elite Trio Frige...Beeping three times in a row suddenly


this unit has a history of the light circuit failing and it will cause the lights to either stay on or off. if they stay on, it will melt the housing around the upper bulb area. it has a recall and should be covered by sears for no charge. it is the control board failure and has a sticking relay for the light circuit, needs board replaced.
the 3 beeps are the unit thinking it has a door open. turn off the alarm on the door control board and call sears 800 # for repair.
