Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have Kenmore Elite Trio, kept smelling hot plastic, checked to see if door was left open, but it wasn't the light was actually not turning off. It melted the plastic light part that covers the light bulbs inside the refridgerator. We unscrewed the light bulbs, what do we do now?

It appears your door switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question((()))

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.

We have a Kenmore Elite 79577554600 Refrigerator. The temperature display is freaking out. The numbers keep changing, lights flashing on and off, temperature counting down from 44.


It is running in "store-demo" mode. Fancy light-show, and the compressor turns off (bad!)
Hold down the right-most two buttons (Ice and refrigerator temp) for about 5 seconds. I think the right-door needs to be open for this to work, but not sure.
This will activate the fridge once again.

Kenwood elite washer is spurting water 3 to 4 times during the agitate cycle. i do not know how to take it apart. it does not leak water at any other time.


The smell in my Kenwood Elite washer is horrible. I use bleach, I use the new TIde Washing Machine Cleaner, I have tried the hot cycles, I have left it open between washings but can't leave it open very much because we have a door out to garage that would hit the washer door if left open too wide. I can't leave clothes in there too long or they smell too much and have to rewash. The clothes never come out of washer smelling super clean. After I dry them using a scented dryer sheet, they are acceptable, but I never have really clean smelling scented clothes any more.

I just saved my fridge / home too, smelled what I thought to be an electrical fire when I opened the Trio doors, immediately looked at the bulbs as a probable cause, and sure enough, the base of the bulb sockets were burned-brown and the plastic housing was to hot to touch without a hot-mit.
Unscrewed the bulbs and set aside out of children's reach and combustable materials.

I'm filing a complaint and service repair today. 8/3/08
