There are 2 different systems I know of for the light shut off because of excessive door open time. One system uses a heat sensor near the light bulb to shut off the light if it gets too hot there. To turn light back on that sensor needs to cool back down after door is closed. Second system for the light off---is that the time light on is actually timed by a electronic part on the mother board. It would come back on until the mother board senses the door closed for a similar amount of time. sometimes just closing and reopening the door will bring it back on, All depends on the type light system.

SOURCE: Refrigerator turns off and on (intermittently) unpredictably

There's probably something sticky inside the button between the plunger and the housing or the spring inside is weak. Try to clean it out. If that doesn't work then replace it.

SOURCE: Help....kenmore trio refrigerator, error message "er co"

The Er Co error code signifies a communication error between the display control board on the freezer door and the main power board on the outer back panel of the refrigerator.

Check the wiring and connections between the low voltage interface and the main high voltage board.

If you are able to unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover over the control board on the back of the refrigerator,
you can check the wiring connection on the main control board.

If this wiring connection is okay, check the wire harness connection under the hinge cover on the top of the left hand refrigerator door.
If these connections are okay, then you will need access the wire harness connection in the dispenser.

Lights in my kenmore refrigerator, freezer on bottom, burned out. I purchased two 60w bulbs and replaced them. I plugged in the refrigerator and the lights were on. Then a couple of minutes later,


Hello Sharon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You can not put normal house hold appliance bulbs in appliances. There are special bulbs for refrigerators, clothes dryers and close washers.

The bulbs are usually available in the local market and marked; "Refrigerator" and Freezer".

You may have a bad door switch. But, I am more prone to go with the wrong service bulb.

Your Friend,

My kenmore elite 106.59966803 beeps every two minutes. Doors are shut and the unit seems to be working fine. Any suggestions?


if the refrigerator is beeping -- then this is a sign that the door switch is not working properly,loose or broken.
to stop the beeping --- press and hold the "lock/alarm" button on the control panel until the indicator light turns off. ( this turns off the 'doors open' alarm ) --- now if you get the door switch fixed and you want to turn the 'door open' alarm back on, then press and hold the " lock/alarm " button again until the indicator light come back on.

We have the same issue with the 22.4 Cu Ft Kenmore elite bottom freezer. Has anyone figured out the problem? Very frustrating..We have unplugged the fridge..nothing. checked to make sure it was getting power to the light socket..all good. We accidently left the freezer door open a little. maybe 15 minutes..we looked and the freezer light came on..closed the door and opened it again, the light still came on..got up the next morning and no light again..Sure dont want to spend $75.00 for a sears tech to come look at it...

My Kenmore Elite gas range is beeping and flashing F90, the door is locked. What can I do to clear this?


F90 Maximum oven door unlock time exceeded.
F91 Maximum oven door unlock attempts exceeded.
F92 Maximum oven door open time exceeded.
F93 Maximum oven door lock time exceeded.
F94 Maximum oven door lock attempts exceeded.


1. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check the wiring between EOC & Lock Motor Micro Switch.

2. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Replace the Motor Door Latch assembly if necessary.

3. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check for binding of the Latch Cam, Lock Motor Rod & Lock Motor Cam.

4. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Check to see if Lock Motor Coil is open. If open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

5. (F90, 91, 92, 93 & 94) Lock Motor continuously runs - if Micro Switch is open, replace Lock Motor Assembly.

6. (F92, 93 & 94) Check oven door Light Switch - if open, replace Switch.

7. If all situations above do not solve problem, replace EOC.


F90 is a door lock code, Try this...
unplug the range.
wait 1 minute.
turn the range back on,
then while holding in on the oven door.
start another self clean.
wait 2 minutes.
then cancel the self clean.

do not release the door until the door lock light goes out.

Refrigerator is not cold


Hi Louis,

This is what has happened. Due to the door being opened for so long moisture which is naturally in the air has collected on your freezer coils. What you need to do is turn the whole thing off for at least 24 hours. Open the doors and put some towels around it to let the frost melt out.
All the air that gets cooled in your unit gets cooled by a fan that pulls air through those coils. Once the frost has melted out of them it should cool just fine.

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.

Either you have accidently left the door open at some time in the last few weeks or you have a faulty defrost sensor, initially turn off defrost freezer over night with doors open, turn on following day, unit should start to work within 12 to 24hrs, other wise replace defrost sensor but still deforst.
