Question about Kenmore 24.8 cu. ft. TRIO Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Ice cubes coming out with silver (grey) paint specs on them

We have a Kenmore Elite Trio refrigerator (purchased 1 1/2 yrs. ago) and were having problems with an error message on the water/ice dispenser and had service come out. January 2, 2008 a Sears serviceman came out and said we needed a controller part (would be in approx. 1 1/2 weeks). After he left that day everything stopped running and we were without a refrigerator for 1 1/2 weeks). The part came and a serviceman came out on January 14th to work on it. Everything seemed fine until we started getting these silver paint specs on our ice cubes. We thought maybe they would go away after a week or so. They still have not. We have no idea where they are coming from and what is causing this to happen, but we are not using our ice cubes because this cannot be good for our health. Any ideas?

Do you know exactly what part he changed? It sounds as though it was some sort of water flow regulator, or valve. The service person should have flushed the system prior to installing the part, and replaced the filter.

Without knowing exactly what he changed, it's hard to tell.

Ive heard horror stories where the techs replace ice maker units, and accidentally put the OLD water source filter on backwards instead of replacing the filter, and all of the contaminants end up in the new unit, and in the ice / cold water.

Kenmore Elite trio Error 15


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

The icemaker in the door of our Kenmore Elite Trio frig just stopped working, exactly 13 mos. after we bought it. We did not get an extended warrantee, because we have never had a new appliance fail so...


Is the ice unit turned on? I pushed the off button by mistake and PAID someone to "turn it back on for me" The guy laughed all the way to the bank :( Also he said a good place to start , before I call next time, is have you checked to see if there is a ice cube frozen(caught) in the top.Pull out the ice catcher(bin) and check for the frozen cube of ice. Be sure to turn off the ice maker first or it may drop ice when you least expect it! My fridge is the origional for house (18 yrs) and after I've done this check list, the problem is fixed. Just thought I mention it. Good luck!!!

Elite trio


Hello bigmikeegator
Welcome!

You said, you have the Kenmore Elite Trio Bottom Freezer. You moved your refrigerator to a new home and removed the bottom freezer door, but can not seem to figure out exactly how to put it back on correctly.


It's too much for me to tell you myself.
This is easier!
Page 9 shows you how to remove and reinstall doors.
