Diagnostic mode for kenmore elite refrigerator

Need to see if pressing certain buttons on my fridge will put it into diagnostic mode and allow me to see what is wrong with it by displaying a code "Woke up to a thawed freezer and cool fridge. Kenmore Elite model #: 795.71039.010. I regularly clean it, meaning the condenser and the stuff where dust builds. I do a yearly blow out of the undercarriage too. I have unplugged it for 5 mins and also i took electric back panel off, found the reset button and did that and let it cycle. As of now, temp is holing in the fridge at 34 (I have it set there) and im attempting to get temp from the freezer. Have seen other models by Kenmore have a way to press a couple of front buttons to let it go into a diagnostic mode where it pushes codes if any, and then i can look them up."

Some do have a diagnostic mode and some do not. Each model is different and we really need to have a model# to help troubleshoot any issues. You also did not say what the issue is?

    Refrige not throwing codes. Took off back electrical panel exposing mother board. On the board was a reset button. Reset the fridge 3 times over a course of an hour. Display was either all 2's or 3' and loud beeping. After last reset beeped loud then began normal operations. Has been working fine for over 4 days. Just FYI in case anyone else runs into this problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Start button will click but won't start


Hello. Your model dryer has a service flash on the lower door strike/catch concerning not staying closed or not closing properly. If the door is allowed to open too much, the door switch will not be closed and the dryer won't run. The part number for the new kit is 279570 and it includes 2 door strikes and several catches. You choose the ones you need. However, if the door *is* closing properly, you can put the unit in diagnostic mode(door closed, all indicators off) by pressing/holding any button *except* stop for 2 seconds, then releasing, press/hold 2 sec, release, press/hold 2 seconds, release-- all the indicator lights will light for 5 seconds, and an 8 88 will be shown in the display. If there are *no* active fault codes, the indicators will momentarily turn off and then stay on with the 8 88 displayed. If there is an active fault code, it will be flashing in the display. (ex. would be an "F" and "xx" where "xx" would be a number.) If you press the same button you originally pressed once, then again, then again, the most recent code will be displayed, then the next, and so on up to 4 stored codes. To turn off diagnostic mode, just press stop. I hope this helps you!

Changed battery now radio doesn't display song or artists name. How do I fix this?


Once you disconnect the battery everything that is in your memories goes "poof" it will take a little time for all of your stations to come back. If I'm not mistaken you still have to set those manually. Radio is mostly satellite that's why you get song names etc. So drive let the computers collect data and before to long you'll get to see this names come up again. Hope this helps.

Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.


1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.
Back to Top
Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

Where is the reset button on a hottpoint side by side refrigerator.


Self Diagnostics

To enter Self Diagnostic mode, both temperature control panel displays must be illuminated. A display can be illuminated by pressing an adjacent temperature adjustment button. When both displays are illuminated, set the freezer and refrigerator temperature settings to 5. Simultaneously press and hold all 4 temperature adjustment buttons for approximately 3 seconds. A flashing 0 in the refrigerator and freezer displays will indicate that the refrigerator is in Self Diagnostic mode.

To perform a self diagnostic test, locate the test in Table 2, Diagnostic Tests.

For temperature control panels with single-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers up and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers down. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test. Press the HOLD button for 3 seconds to begin the test.

For temperature control panels with 3-digit displays, the COLDER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers down and the WARMER temperature adjustment button will increment the numbers up. Use the freezer temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the freezer display. Use the refrigerator temperature adjustment buttons to enter the test code number in the refrigerator display. When a test code has been entered, the displays will flash to confirm the test code. Press any button other than a temperature adjust button to begin the test.

When testing has been completed, do one of the following things:

• Enter code 1 5 to completely reset the system.
• Enter code 1 6 to exit diagnostic mode. The temperature control panel is reset automatically.
• Unplug the refrigerator for at least 10 seconds. Test mode will terminate when the refrigerator is plugged back in.

Test mode will terminate automatically after 15 minutes of inactivity.

There is not a "diagnostic mode" for the neptune washer.
All tests and functionality are done at each setting using the timer (except the tach circuit)
What is the problem you are looking to diagnose??
