Stay away. If it does need freon it means it has a leak somewhere in the sealed system. That can be a very expensive fix. Who diagnosed the problem? May be other issues. If your looking for used go to an appliance dealer to get at least a 30 day warranty. I would not reccomend buying anything that has not been repaired first.

What do I need to fix a cycling compressor fan?


Multiple cycling usually means it\'s having a hard time maintaining temp. This could be a couple reasons but almost every answer begins with "call your local service tech. It could be a simple cleaning of the coils, or a bad thermo expansion value (TXV) which is effectively the thermo-stat or the system needs a new refrigerant charge or the compressor is failing. All of these are best handled by a qualified service tech...it may just be the door is not fully closing.

How do i reset a kenmore elite fridge after installing a new control board?


I wouldn't think that it needs resetting?? Is the fridge not working at all now? Have a close look at the old board and the new one. Some manufacturers leave little "jumper" plugs off new boards and you have to take them off the old board and transfer them to the new one. Look very closely... They are hard to see sometimes.

Does not cool

I repaired a kenmore french door refrigerator last year for my neighbor. It wouldn't cool, and the compressor continually clicked but never came on. I replaced the capacitor (weak) and the claxon mounted on the compressor housing. If you don't hear a clicking from the compressor (under the bottom of fridge), and you can hear the compressor running then it might be your defrost heaters. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sylSVZKGB9I

We have a Kenmore Elite 79577554600 Refrigerator. The temperature display is freaking out. The numbers keep changing, lights flashing on and off, temperature counting down from 44.


It is running in "store-demo" mode. Fancy light-show, and the compressor turns off (bad!)
Hold down the right-most two buttons (Ice and refrigerator temp) for about 5 seconds. I think the right-door needs to be open for this to work, but not sure.
This will activate the fridge once again.

My 2003 kenmore elite french door fridge made noise for several days, then died. Repairman said it was compressor...expensive repair, so I bought new fridge. Old fridge came back to life 48 hours after...


I bet the bearings in your compressor are bad. The compressor will run and heat up but after getting hot it won't always restart. Most of the time it happens with Tecumseh compressors.

I have a Kenmore Elite Trio for about 3 years now. The first problem I have was - the freezer is fine but the fridge is warm. The cause was the fan on which it stop working after just a year and a half....


If your unit is like most french door w/freezer chests it has to be the fans again. There are two fans at the rear of the freezer chest one supplies circulation to the ice maker and refrigerator and the other supplies ciculation to the freezer section. These fans don't seem to be vary well made but are expensive to replace. I would replace them first. if that is not the problem then you would have to look at the compressor.
