I unpluged the fridge to get rid of the error on the control panel. but now its stuck on my last settings of 8 and 5 and it just beeps at me and does not change when I try.

    thanks bothcoasts,
    I read the manual and its trouble guide but no luck as it stands I literaly just finished unloading the freezer and removing the ice (again)!! arrrrggg! anyway I think it could be to cold, I never would have thought of that except it is building up ice on the way to the ice trays and then the water runs down to the fan and builds up til it makes noise, I could not find any re-set info on this fridge please help.

    Is the compressor running? Does the compressor ever shut off? You will be able to hear it in back or under the refrigerator.

I am sorry I am not a top refrigerator expert. It sounds like there is a way to reset that. You most likely hold down two buttons for a period of a few seconds.
Sorry I don't have the time to search the net for that particular manual or way to reset that board. If you have no luck by tomorrow try me then.

Totally up to you. Most people set them for the temp they like their milk and the firmness of their icecream

SOURCE: Problems with Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft.

It appears your main controller 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

I have the same problem with this refrigerator. It looks like Sears Parts Direct sells all the parts for this unit except for the printed circuit board and temperature control switches. I called my local repairman and set up an appointment. He called back to cancel his appointment because he was also unable to get the electronics. Were you able to fix your unit? What did you replace?

SOURCE: How do I reset temperature

The first thing to do to try and reset these things is to unplug the fridge and let it set for 20 min and see if it will clear itself. Lots of times these small circuit boards get locked up and the only way to clear them is to power them down. If it does not come back up after the power down we can go from there but there is not a lot to try. The panal may have gone bad!

Kenmore elite refrigerator is not cooling, but the freezer seems to be working fine.


Kenmore Elite refrigerators come in several styles, including units with a freezer at the top and units with freezers at the bottom. The top and bottom of the fridge work on different systems. Sometimes the freezer may function perfectly, while the fridge performs poorly. Most issues with the fridge cooling are due to incorrect settings or poor cleaning practices. Checking common problems with the refrigerator will help you diagnose the situation and keep expensive repairs to a minimum
1. Check that the Kenmore Elite refrigerator is plugged in. Inspect the circuit breaker of the home if the refrigerator is plugged in but not running.
2. Pull the unit out from the wall and vacuum the condenser coils at the back of the unit.
3. Turn the temperature control in the Kenmore Elite refrigerator to the "On" position.
4. Turn up the temperature on the temperature control, located inside the unit on the wall.
5. Check the seal along the door for signs of cracks or dryness. If it is damaged, lift up on the seal to expose the screws that hold it in place. Loosen the screws and pull the seal off. Place a new seal on the unit, starting in the corners and working your way around to insert the tabs into the Kenmore Elite fridge door.

I hope i solve you problem.
Have a nice day : )

Hi, Please tell me how to change the temperature on my elite kenmore.


Klay421 --
Which model Kenmore Elite refrigerator do you have? If you have one of the older manual models, the thermostat is located inside the fridge side. If you have a newer model with digital controls you need to press and hold the the ON/OFF button for 2 seconds until the digital displays for temperature for the Freezer and Refrigerator lights. The Up/Down arrows allows you to adjust the temperature. If you are still having problems, write back. -- SWT
