Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Kenmore freezer model 253.28712809 door ajar alarm keeps beeping and the door is fully closed with all seals intact. I checked the door switch and it is working intermittently with the alarm sounding even when the door switch does work. Would replacing the door switch fix my issue or could it still be the control panel?

My Kenmore Elite (Model 795.7755 3600), less than two years old, had
the same problem. One morning I opened the doors to a hot fridge and
burning plastic. The light housing was sizzling hot - much of the unit
literally melting away. Another hour or two and it could have been
Called the 1-800 number listed in the fridge. After about 45 minutes of patient talking, I learned that Sears (or Kenmore) have issued what they refer to as a "flash warranty) on the light fixture kit (Kit # 6871JB1423N) which in effect, for this part only, extends the factory warranty from one year to three years. I may even be able to have a factory tech install the parts. Hope it works out.
Bottom line: if you have this fridge, be very careful and monitor closely. An pursue the part warranty!

Your defrost elements are not working or the inlet to the evaporator tray is clogged, if you haven't gotten iny icy water build-up in the bottom of the fridge you will soon. This may require a service call.

Thanks so much for the advice. I just gently pried the door sensor switch on my Samsung RB1855SL out with a butter knife and then pulled out the electrical connection and it fired up right away. It looks like some orange juice seeped in and corroded it. What a relief to have the fridge working again, not to mention to not have to listen to the beeping.

Your door switch may be bad. Is the light on when you open the door when you manually push in on the switch does the light go off? On most fzr the door ajar alarm is set off by the door switch showing the door is open.Turn off the power by unplugging the fzr then you can pop the switch out with a flat blade screw driver if it is only a two wire you can use a paper clip to connect the two wires wrap them with elect tape Then plug the freezer back in and see if the problem clears if it does order a door switch. Some units use a vacume sensor but i believe all kenmores use the door switch. good luck

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your door ajar alarm is going off when the door is closed to your Frigidaire freezer. It sounds like a possible issue with the control panel or switch. Let's perform a reset to your appliance to see if that will correct the issue. You can do that by disconnecting power from the appliance for roughly ten minutes. I hope this helps. -Matt
