Door cam problem for an older Sears Kenmore 22 refrigerator,

I have an older Sears Kenmore 22 refrigerator, number 106.8552970. Over the years I've ocassionally had to replace the door cam plastic at the lower pivot. The last replacement did not last very long - perhaps about 6 months. I was finding flakes of plastic on the floor below the pivot. Upon dissassembly I found the plastic castle-head-like shapes worn down. I replaced them Sunday with a set of Whirlpool FSP 2155311 door cams which I obtained from a local appliance parts store. Now, 4 days later I again find that flakes are appearing and the door seems to excessively bind in the fully open position. It worked fine initially. Noticed the binding 2 days ago and the flakes last night. HELP!!!

from your description it sounds like your hearing the start relay trying to start your compressor. most likely this relay is bad and needs replacing.

First do the simple things like cleaning the condensor coils and turning the defrost timer a few times, also check the evaporator motor or just listen to the fan by opening the freezer door. Also check the light switch, make sure it turns the light off every time you close the door.

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator stop cold but frosting bad

Hello Catherine Fu,

You said, you got this whirlpool double door refrigerator for 4 years. cost me about 1.5k. the second year, right after warranty, the main brain is down-the light panel in the refrigerator is off. whirlpool tech told me to replace it will cost me 500, so you decide not to do it. Now you have bad frosting issue for 6 month. Inside the Refrigerator, the water keep on dripping on side wall and glass drawer ceiling. In the freezer, frosting all over each drawer, and the bottom drawer has too many frosting and ice that i can hardly close the door. Last night, the refrigerator section just don't get cold anymore, it shuts up by itself.
Help!! It is an very expensive refrigerator and ONLY 4 years old .

First,I think you need to have a new tech.
It sounds like you have either an air leak allowing out side air in and this causes the icing.
Or you may need some freon (coolant gas) .
If your freon pressure is low it can ice up.
Did that tech that was there check for a freon leak and also check the pressure of the freon in the lines???
You need to call a different tech and let him see what's happening.
Some company that is reliable!

Let me know what they do for you.
God bless, Huuum

please remember to leave a rating.

Have you considered the strppingt around the door?  If so, you can use silicone spray for it or anything else around the fridge.  Wipe up excess.  There is a version of the spray which says that it is dripless.  I think I saw it at ACE.

SOURCE: Refrigerator door fell off.

Should be able to just replace the pin if the door didn't get damaged. If you go to, put in the model number and you can get a parts breakdown and order the parts yourself and save some money.

When will there be a s sale on Samsung French door refrigerator


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

Sears has a "Friends and Family Night", twice a year. You need a ticket to get. Contact: "Sears Customer Service". Also, Holiday week ends.

You may want to consider a "Sears Outlet (Scratch & Dent) Store". You can save several hundred dollars and get a one year warrantee.

Both Samsung and LG have the highest repair rate.

Also stay away from bottom freezers and units that have either the icemaker or the ice bucket mounted on the door.

Consider: GE, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Amada.

Were is the defrost timer in double door Kenmore refrigerator

What's your model number? Kenmore is just a name Sears slaps on appliances made by many different manufacturers. It's difficult to say exactly where it's at if you don't provide the model number.

But, be that as it may, it's never in the freezer section. If you have an older unit, try looking up top near the thermostats inside the fresh foods side. If you have a really old unit, take off the kicker grill plate on the bottom of the refrigerator and look to the left side for it. And, if you have a newer unit that is digital, it's part of the main control board.

Good luck

Kenmore Fridge not working - electricity is fine, no dust

There so many reasons for the answer to the solution that I want to ask you a few things about your refrigerator.
1. Sears uses model numbers that protect their brand names and models to keep them Kenmore. For example Kenmore may be made by a very well known Brand name with a different model number. The truth for a sample Kenmore Brand Name would look like this 214.2654789 for example only.
2. Location of most Sears Brand Names are located near the bottom of the fresh food section door and just near the door seal. I will send photo locations soon because my computer that I use to upload photos and description's in doing a long virus scan.
Now can you tell me the model number, are the lights on, are fan's running or is it just like it's unplugged?
Answer those or most of those question and I will help you get your Kenmore running again. Thanks, Sea Breeze

How to remove inside panel of refrigerator door of the Kenmore French Door to replace the tubing for the water bottle?? Thank you!

Sears has a complete model number system that is confusing I know. Sears made it that way. Not sure why but look around the cold food section door while open and look near bottom on the frame just above the kick plate. The number looks like this, (model No. 253.64802400 for example) Find that number and we can go from there. Go to my Site and Scroll down to model number locations photo, Thanks, Sea Breeze email Web Site
