Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore 795.73266304 that continues to beep even when the door is closed. For no apparent reason. I bought a new switch (the one that controls the lights in the fridge and freezer. Didn't stop the problem. The only way to stop the problem was to remove the switch which I did but no there is no light in the fridge. I am thinking maybe it is a motherboard of sorts in the unit but I can't figure out what the part is . I also lost the schematic of the unit - I was thinking that perhaps we could figure out what wire controlled the beeping and disconnect that but leave the light on. This model doesn't appear to show up on any searches. I bought it in 2005. It cost $1200 and have been beeping intermittant since I got it.

If the doors are closed good, the lights are turning off and it still beeps, the main board will need to be replaced. The board is located behind the unit. It controls all the functions in this unit. This board is available at Sears Parts Direct.

I'm not sure if this is the model number of the main board "# 6871JB1215J". You need to contact the manufacturer and give them the complete model number of your appliance, and they will verify the model number of the main board.

Thank you and good luck!

I have a Kenmore refrigerator top mount freezer, which quite often starts sounding 3 beeps.


This refrigerator should have an alarm for an open door.

If the beeping is indicating a fault code, you should see this indicated on the display.

If no fault code is indicated and the alarm is due to an open door even with the switches pushed in, then you could have a bad door switch or a failed control board.

Hello,


Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Depending on the age of the fridge, it might still be under warranty. If it's not, then you might be able to access the door switch yourself and pull it out & replace it.


Good luck......

Won't start - 3 beeps when Start button pushed


CHECK THE FOLLOWING--

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.

Won't start, just beeps - sounds like door switch problem others have had


The three short beeps could be part of the fault code. Check the owners manual and there are diagnostic sheets on the inside of the machine. I cannot find this fault code in my data base. What is the Model and Serial Number of your Dryer. Check the Power inside the machine at the power cord power connections. You should have 120V from both power terminals to the common terminal. There should be 240 Volts across the main power terminal. Another quest replaced the power cord. Hope to hear some good news soon.
