Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
When I opened the doors (side-by-side) there was an odor like an electrical short inside the refrigerator. The lights were on and the plastic cover was extremely hot to the touch. The food container on the top shelf under the lights was very hot. I pushed the two door switch probes repeatedly but the lights would not go off. However, when the probes were pushed in, the refrigerator mechanisms started up - the fans and the compressor. Wound up removing the shield and the bulbs.
Of course, the warranty just ran out!!!
Carol, Would you please send me the model number for yor bottom Freezer made for Sears and sold as a Kenmore? Many refrigerator are mad by the same company but sears uses a model number system that needs to be decoded to find the OEM parts. This refrigerator has been the type I have had no one been able to tell me the model number. I have even called Sears and asked! An example for a refrigerator from Sears would look like this 513.265989 for example only. I will try to find their model locator's and send you a photo of it. The problem you are having is serious and indicates a short circuit that needs to be addressed to Sears. If the lights stay on while the door is closed it will cause the refrigerator to run all the time and confuse the thermostat in to thinking the temperature is too warm. I have always hated those small print warranty contracts. They are always designed to make you believe you have good protection while it takes an Attorney to tell you the truth. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
