Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Kenmore side-by-side model 363.9565412 Energy Star Compliant?????

I need to know if this refrigerator is Energy Star Compliant. My neighbor wants to buy it from me. My owner's manual doesn't spell it out but I cannot imagine that I would buy one that wasn't. It is 11 or 12 years old and the Sears salesman tells me that ESC's began in 1979. Anybody know about this model or if there's a sticker or label on the refrig that I'm missing? Thanks.

ALL ENERGY STAR APPLIANCES HAVE A "ENERGY-STAR LABEL" USUALLY LOCATED ON OR NEAR THE MODEL AND SER. NUMBER TAG OR LABEL. CHECK ON THE BACK OR INSIDE THE REFRIGERATOR WHERE THE COLD CONTROLS ARE LOCATED.

SOURCE: Kenmore refrig not making ice and top shelf area in refrig not cold

if you are having tempurature issues make sure the fan in the freezer is operating. it should be on when the compresor is running. this may explain both warm fridge and no ice.

SOURCE: Kenmore side by side refrigerator

That is a Tecumseh compressor and refrigerators are very tricky when it comes to installing a new compressor. It will need a new liquid drier and silver soldered in a tight place. Then the system will need to be put in a absolute vacuum for about 1 hour. The freon will have to be weighed and charged into the refrigerator very carefully as it take only a few ounce's of freon. Too much or too little or just a tiny bubble of outside air will cause the refrigerator not to work. The fact that the old compressor needs removed also raises the question of if the original was a burn out. If it was a burn out then the type of oil the new compressor and the old will need to be considered to determine if more things, like acid neutralizer or filter driers will be needed to insure proper installation. Hope I have helped you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Why is hi temp alarm sounding


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
Your high temp alarm will sound once your refrigerator temperature rises to an unstable temperature on the inside of your appliance. If you refrigerator is cooling properly I would recommend resetting your appliance which can be done by disconnecting the power to your appliance for roughly ten minutes. If this does not correct the issue, I would recommend having a professional come and diagnose your appliance properly. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Tip

Refrigerator Efficiency


The efficiency of your refrigerator can be much better if you take the time to check out a few things before you buy or do a bit of maintenance on your refrigerator. The maintenance part I have covered in another tip, so I will just stick to the things that you can check when buying a new refrigerator in this tip.

Energy Star refrigerators will save you money. Look for a refrigerator rated with the energy star, when choosing a new model. Efficient refrigerators rated with the energy star are listed on the energy star website.

The style of the refrigerator will also make a difference in the refrigerator electric usage. A side-by-side refrigerator will use more energy then a top freezer model. The refrigerator electric usage is higher for those models with the two side-by side doors. If you look at the energy star list you can also see the energy kWh/year usage and see which models use the most electricity.

Some other things you can do so that your refrigerator work is less, includes checking the door seals, cleaning the condenser coils, checking the thermostat settings, and checking to see if you can turn off the door heaters if your refrigerator has them. Cracked or loose door seals will allow air to circulate outside the fridge, this uses more energy to keep the refrigerator cooling. Dirty condenser coils will cause the refrigerator compressor to work harder to cool the fridge. The door heaters also will make the refrigerator work harder to keep it cool inside. Adjusting the thermostats to 0- 5 degree F for the freezer and 36 -38 degrees F for the fridge side will keep your food fresh and still save energy.

Efficient refrigerators are great but they still need to be taken good care of by cleaning and servicing them regularly. Refrigerator electric is one of the biggest electric usages in most homes. Take some time to check over your refrigerator to help save some money on your electric bill.

I need energy star rating for kenmore refrigerator #795.71309.012


The 795.71309.012 was built by LG for the Kenmore line. You can buy a copy of the Energy Star Rating label from Sears Parts Direct or other appliance parts store for a few dollars. It is part number MEZ62603802; see http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/MEZ62603802/0046/795/Model-79571309012/0582/0161000?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=F1201020&diagramPageId=00004&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=79571309012&subCompDesc=Refrigerator%20parts%20%28pantry%29&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=REFRIGERATOR&blt=11&shdMod= .

Unfortunately the 795.71309.012 is not listed at the EPA Energy Star site any more. (It's no longer qualified due to changes in the energy efficiency requirements.)

I wish that I could be of more assistance.

Kenmore Refridgerator Freezer Condensation


When I observed this issue, I found the freezer not running the defrost cycle enough times, (maybe this was in the spirit of conserving energy Energy Star compliant???))
If the Defrost is working, use the diagnostic test, that may be all you need to do until the next build up of frost on the coils.

I just want to know how much energy my Kenmore Side by Side uses


Newer refrigerators are more energy efficient than a 10 year old unit.

Look for a unit with an "Energy Star" rating. However, this rating is achieved by adding insulation to the box and the doors. If you look at a new unit, you will see that the doors and sides are thicker than your older unit. This is good and bad. Good becasue it will use less energy. Bad due to the extra bulk and space the unit will take up. You may also lose some storage space inside the refrigerator.

What is the + and - for on front of ice maker behind cover.


It's the water fill adjustment, and it adjusts the amount of water coming into the icemaker for each load of ice. If your cubes have gotten smaller, or if they're hard to break apart, you can make a small adjustment with that screw.
