just called in a sears technician 150 dollar bill that was an easy fix. he says my bottom freezer kenmore fridge with warm fridge problem was due to the pathway being blocked by ice and garbage which is common with these fridges. he took off cover from the fridge bottom and poured boiling water down to the freezer. try that before you replace any parts or call in a tech.

er dh means the refrigs computer is not sensing a defrost cycle (dh means defrost heater) most common problem is a bad defrost sensor located on the evaporator behind the plastic cover in the back of the freezer compartment. your refrig will continue to cool for about 1 week unless you get this fixed then the evaporator coil will ice over and have to be defrosted manually.
this is an easy part to replace yourself and you can purchase the part thru sears.com or any of the other parts distributors on the net. you will need a complete model number from the unit to be sure and secure the correct part.
Thanks for using FixYa peyton...

The Er DH error code indicates the temperature sensor on the evaporator coil did not reach 50 degrees within one hour.
This would indicate the control board did put the refrigerator through a defrost cycle.
This problem could be caused by a defective relay on the control board, a defective defrost heater, a broken wire to the heater, or a stopped up drain on the defrost pan causing ice to form on the evaporator coil.
Before replacing the control board, someone should remove the food from the freezer, remove the freezer drawer, and remove the evaporator cover to expose the evaporator coil, heater, and defrost sensor.
The voltage to the defrost heater should be 120 volts ac.
The defrost heater is part of the evaporator coil and is not replaceable as a separate part.
You can test the operation of the defrost system by pressing "Ultra Ice" and "colder freezer temp" for 3 seconds.
The first time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and open the damper.
All displays should be on.
The second time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and close the damper.
The third time you press and hold the buttons, the board will turn the compressor and fan off and turn the defrost heater on for around 25 minutes. This would let you know if the defrost system is working.

be intimidated by this repair... The
'erdh' error code indicates - error defrost heater. Replacing the controller is EASY. The difficult part is removing everything in
the freezer section to access the evaporator coil but hang in there and stay
with it. You will not hurt anything if
you use common sense.
new part (defrost controller) is relatively inexpensive ranging $10 - $14. Here in the SouthWest I used Appliance Parts
Depot for a $10 part cost. Don't forget
to have 3-4 small wire ties to secure the defrost heater, defrost sensor and
would help to write down a few notes of some of the particulars during
had the same ERDH error code, and my refrigerator began to warm up. I replaced
the defrost thermostat assembly part # 6615JB2005H which is located inside the
freezer, on the right side behind the white plastic panel.
Diagram Image) I accessed it by removing the freezer door, all components
inside the freezer, including the slide rails / tracks mounted on the sides of
the freezer. Be careful when removing the rear white panel because an
evaporator fan is mounted on the back of it and plugs into the back left side
of the freezer compartment. You just
saved yourself about $375 or more.
Stay With It & Good Luck!
