SOURCE: The control panel light blinking and ice trap door will not close

Sounds like you need a new display pwb. The flapper for the ice works on a solenoid which is on a little board that is behind the display board. When the power is cut the flapper should close as it is on a spring. I don't believe that there is any worries of it catching fire. Have a tech come and replace the board for you.

SOURCE: lights stay on in fridge

HI. The door switch will be the culprit here.

The interior light in most refrigerators, and the fan in some, are controlled by a door switch. When the door is closed, the switch is depressed and the interior light goes off and the fan resumes normal operation. If the door is misaligned or the switch malfunctions, the refrigerator may become warm as a result of the non-operation of the evaporator fan and the heat generated by the interior light. Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.

You have a bad main board with a relay stuck shut. Call an LG dealer and ask them if there is a service bulliten on your model. If there is, your parts are free.

Testimonial: "This is exactly right. Both the parts and labor were covered by LG, even though the fridge is almost 3 years old."

Kenmore ref model 795.73266303. After power outage fridge won't turn on. Lights inside work but the digital thermostat is off.


Check the parts list at the link below to see if a circuit breaker is present in your fridge, it could have tripped if incoming line problems were unstable:

Sears/Kenmore (Canada) Model# 970-681821 . Anyone know manufacture date and if there is an Owners Manual available?


Hello Anna Dee;

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

What a run around! Look on the inside of the fresh food section of your refrigerator. There is a label on the wall near the top. The date of manufacturer is on the label. Also the correct model number. Send me the model number.


What is the problem? Refrigerators are not designed to operate in a garage. If you purchase a new unit and it was under warrantee, the warrantee would be voided if it were operating in a garage.

I was a Sears field service technician. I have never heard of a garage heater kit.


Sorry, you got the run around. The customer service people are under trained, and the telephone technical personal have never spent a day in the field.

Sears Canada bought Eatons Canada back in 2002. Eatons sold Viking products. I bought I Sears Viking over the range Viking microwave built in 2002. Nomeclature # 851.8250800 Model # 82508 Ser#...


This is a Sanyo microwave. the "851" number is the manufacturer number or "source" number. I can't tell you any more about that particular model.
I would remove the circuit board (control panel) and check for damaged/burnt copper print. Where the copper is burnt, you can solder on jumper wires to complete the circuit.

Have a Kenmore electric range. A model C880 sold by Sears Canada. One of the "element on" indicator lights stay on even though the elements are not switched on.


This is usually the infinite switch has failed. They are easy to check and inexpensive. Here is a video that will walk you thru testing an infinite switch. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

Kenmore lid switch


The following link explains how to replace a lid switch on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Now, unless someone has modified the original lid switch, there is NO soldering required. The defective switch just has a couple of mounting screws holding it in place, along with a ground wire attached to the casing. The entire assembly unplugs from the timer and comes out.

As far as a replacement is concerned, you can order them on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your complete model number (located around the wash tub opening) and the lid switch is usually listed under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. If your lid switch is activated by a lid strike, which is mounted on the washer lid, make sure it is also intact and not broken. The strike is also listed under the same heading. If you do not wish to wait on shipment, take the part numbers listed on the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. These are standard parts that can commonly be found there.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Light Switch Stuck


This is a replaceable part. A new switch can be ordered from Sears by Model number of your refrigerator and name of the part. If you have your owners manual it may contain a list with part numbers. Some of these switches will pop out to be replaced. Others you may have to remove the breaker strip where it is mounted to remove the switch by compressing the snaps on the side of the switch.

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
