Hi, It should slide into a hole or fasten to the evaporator. Get me a model # so I can look this up and assist you further.

There should be a clip like mechanism on the bottom or one of the sides of the evaporator. It may be a small clamp closed by a screw or two. It should not just be dangling in the air.

### How many cubic feet is the 106.5942801 model?

1 Open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator
from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.
2 Measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.
3 Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.
4 Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.

### How to convert one foot to cubic feet

To get cubic feet, you multiply the length of each of the three sides.
So:

If something is 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 foot, that's 1x1x1=1 cubic feet
If it's 1 foot x 2 feet x 3 feet, that's 1x2x3=6 cubic feet
and so on...

### What size is model 54160 refridgerator

The quickest way would be to measure the Volume inside of the unit. Height, Width and Depth. Example: Height 60 inches, width 24 inches, depth 24 inches then divide by 1728(Cubic inches in a Cubic foot 12x12x12). 24x24x60 = 34560 / 1728 = 20 cubic feet

### Red wire loose hanging from inside front of window a/c.Its a frigidaire model #fra105ct1.the red wire is zip tied to a double black wire that goes to the front radiator of the a/c.Would ya know what it...

If its hanging out of the front, I would think that its a broken wire off one of the sensors. There are usually 2 sensors on the front. 1 measures room air temperature, (Air sensor)and the other measures the refrigerant temperature in the pipes (Pipe sensor) The air sensor has a small bulb on the end of it and is usually clipped onto the front of the coil or the front panel.. The pipe sensor has a small copper tube on the end which slides into a hole or sleeve on the side of the evaporator coil.

### What size is my Kenmore 106.56699501 refrigerator

I chatted with someone at Sears. They told me it is approx. 22 cu ft.

Alternatively, you could measure.

The first step is to open the refrigerator door. Measure the depth of the refrigerator from the front edge of the refrigerator opening to the back wall. Make sure that you measure in feet and not in inches. Note the depth measurement on a piece of paper.

Then, measure the height and the width of your refrigerator's opening. Note the two additional measurements on your paper. Multiply the depth, height and width measurements to obtain the refrigerator's cubic foot measurement.

Take the same measurements from the interior of the freezer. Multiply those measurements together to get the cubic foot size of your freezer.

Add the cubic foot measurement of the refrigerator interior to the cubic foot measurement of the freezer interior. This gives you the total cubic foot measurement for the refrigerator.

### About every 4-5 days I notice water on the floor coming from under the front grille.I assume it has something to do with the defrost cycle and maybe a drain tube is clogged? I have a 25 cubic foot side by...

Yes its possible clogged drain tube will cause that, de-clogged it by using soft stick or solid wire right enough to penetrate inside the drain tube. Then clean it with water, before doing that transfer the inside of refrigerator (food, beverages, fruits,etc) get it back until you finish the job.
Good luck!

Measure Exterior Height & Width and Depth for Dimension.
Interior Space = Then, Measure all open accessible area inside the fridge and add the two together, following the formula of H+W+L Freezer and H+W+L Refrigerator,add together and BAM ya got cubic inches.= Square inches, then divide by 1,728 (the number of cubic inches in a foot (3) Cubed.
Example 1: 60 inches tall, 42 inches wide, 30 inches deep = 75600/1728 = 43.75 Cubic Foot AREA
Example 2: fREEZER dIMS = 24 DEEP x 18 HIGH x 36 WIDE =15552/1728 is 9 CuFt. Refridgerator 36 wide, 36 high 28 deep = 36,288/1728 = 21 CuFt. + 9 CuFt. = 30 Cubic Foot Capacity.

### The Dometic DM2652 doesn't have temperature controls. My 2008 model freezes alomost everything on the top two shelves of the refridgerator. I use a low volume air circulator. Is there a way to lower the...

I have the same model in my 5th wheel. I found a white plastic piece on the far right side of the metal slats inside the refrigerator. This plastic piece has some kind of a probe attached to it. The white plastic piece slides up/down on the metal slat. There is a sticker next to this thing on the right side of the refrigerator (inside) that shows a range of "colder to coldest". I think if you slide that piece up/down, that is what controls the temp inside the frig.

### Wires hanging in ice maker area

Look underneath the 2nd row from left in the ice tray there should be a white plastic piece that pops in and out from the bottom of the ice tray. Pop it off. There should be a piece of styrofoam on top of the piece you removed. the white wire runs along the bottom of the ice tray there may be little plastic hooks to place wire along the way. The sensor should fit right where the white piece of plastic and styrofoam you removed goes. Just place it there and pop that piece back in. It really doesn't attach to anything just lays there.
