SOURCE: How do I remove the front panel to clean the coils

front panel has one phillips screw in it. remove the air filter and you will see it. Once you remove the screw, grasp the lower front sides of the cover, where the plastic meets the metal, and gently pry it outwards and towards you. there are plastic clips that hold the cover in place. One on each lower side and three on top.

How to remove the cover to check and recharge the coolant? Where is the coolant refill port?

I would make a suggestion here.
Look up your model number and type it in to the web site for "Sears Parts Direct:" and you may be able to see if there are any recharge ports available to you.
I am suspicious that there are none.
I typed that model number into that source, and they said that was not the complete model number.
See if you can find a longer one.
God bless your efforts.

Cooktop on my Kenmore stove never looks nice - streaks, nasty surface

Use the Sears Cooktop Cleaning Cream with the blue non-scratch pads sold by Scotch Brite. Wipe clean with a damp sponge, and for final touch, use Windex and a paper towel to make it shine.

Kenmore 12,000 BTU unit 60days old compressor dead

  1. Sears or any firm that sells a Unit has to have a chance to look at the problem and repiar it, if you installed it WRONG that is Bad ! Sears will not be responsible for damge to the Unit, bring it to them, you might have to leave it for days - better to have a serviceman come to the home - Units are covered for 90 days all but Electrical ( ???) You better have the bill of sale ( date purchased ( not installed !! )
