Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

Older Kenmore upright freezer

My mother has an approx. 20 yr. old Kenmore upright freezer. She recently found all her food in there thawed out. The freezer is running along with the fan but it is not cold. The coils are not cold either. Any suggestions? I thought it might need new coolent but somebody also said it might be the compressor.

Ajrtz I will give you the same advice I gave my parents when their freezer did this. Just buy a new one. The new freezer will have a full warranty, be more engery efficent(may even qualify for rebate from power company), and you won't be worring when it is going to go down again. To resolve a seal system problem is usually around 500 dollars and that is the price of a new unit. Sorry but that is the best advice I can give you on this. just being honest. Note: If you buy get the best warranty on the sealed system you can. This is the cooling system.

Freezer works but the fridge area is not cool

Remove the bottom plastic liner on the freezer and look midways ont the backside for the hole where the drain is. If it has a slabe of ice over it unplug the freezer and let it thaw out. This will take a day or 2 to fix so have the food transfered elsewhere. After thaw out clear the drain. Remove the rear panel and check the fan operation. At that point if the fan is operating you can put the panels back on and wsee if clearing the drain is the problem. If it happens again in a few weeks then either the heater is bad or the defrost thermostat is bad. When either one of these go out the timer still goes into defrost but the heat does not. So what water dribbles down in them 21 minutes tends to pool up and freeze over. The evaporator gets clogged . The refrigerator has a blizzard up in the freezer and nothing happening below even though the fan is blowing full blast shaboom!

My mother in law has a kenmore dryer that is 15 - 20 years old. It will start but the dru will not turn she says it does not have a broken belt

Verification of the belt in place would first need to be done, then check to see if the motor is running.

The belt could have jumped off

if the belt was replaced recently, It might not have been the right belt.

My mother has a Kenmore 500 Gas Dryer at least 15 yr. old. Model 110 660 501. It stopped working and shows no indication there is power. Is there a main fuse or reset switch I can look for? We don't...

it would pay to replace dryer if it is 15 yrs old a newer dryer would be more efficent. Check wires from wall and run them to control panel. Ther should be a relay between power cord and switch

Frigidare ice maker making slabs of ice, not cubes

Today, I removed ice maker and auger motor. Found out this morning that water was running down the back of frig. inside, everything in freezer was frozen together. Found this out after removing all food from freezer. When i looked into the ice maker where water enters, that was frozen solid. After thawing and checking everthing. I put it back together in freezer. It is nine oclock now, and I do have cubes. I really can't tell you what I did, except thaw it all out. It's been running for four hours now and it seems to be all right.
