Question about Kenmore Elite 21082

1 Answer

Fridge stops working when power goes out.

The past few days we have been having power outages because of thunderstorms. when we have a power outage the fridge stops working immediatley after. a few days later the fridge will just start working again. i know its not the circuit breaker. should we have a repair man come in. the fridge is not just yet 2 years old. We have a Kenmore Elite double door ice/water front. Our power was out for approxiamtely 36+ hours. When the fridge came back on only the freezer is staying cold. The main side is luke warm and we are losing our food.

Re: fridge stops working when power goes out.

It sounds like maybe the freezer fan is coming back on ??? Do you hear it in freezer?? I would recommend having it looked at ----this definately doesnt sound normal.

Displays on maytag neptune washer and dryer won't come on after a power outage

It may have burnt the main controls out on circuit boards or this sounds silly but check your breakers, did you have a power surge before the outage?

Code E12 (?) after power outages, got it working again but is stuck in heavy duty mode only.

A power surge may have blown out or shorted any one of the many components in modern washers. Seems silly but I've fixed many error codes by unplugging mine for a few minutes from the wall and re plugging it. Hope that helps. Otherwise you could call the manufacturer and ask for the meaning of the code its self

Washer won't work after power outage

Inspect your motor. It maybe going thermal cutoff. Overheating this will pop the C/B. The motor will run for awhile until it heats up. When the motor colds down it may work for a few minutes.
