Kenmore model 16039/665.16039403 will not start...does not appear to have power

My Kenmore model 16039/665.16039403 is just outside of warranty and will not does not appear to to be getting power because the lights on the console will not light at all. I have confirmed that power is getting to the unit though. Does this mean the control panel is dead? Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.

    I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 665 (black, approx 4-5 years old) that acts like it is not getting power as pushing the buttons does nothing. It has not been "acting up" rather it just acts as though it has been unplugged. I have removed the front bottom panel and confirmed that power, and water, are getting to the unit. Any idea's?

There is a thermal fuse located on the electronic control board housing that may have failed.This replaceable part (gray or white) is clipped on to the side of the housing.

What is the size of my kenmore 253.77879506 top freezer fridge

This appears to have been sourced from A. B. Electrolux (Frigidaire) but Sears does not supply a capacity. The outside dimensions can help determine the capacity as most 18 cu. ft. units will be approx. 66" high while 21 cu. ft. models will be 68" high (or higher.)

I have a kenmore dryer series 80 model#110.66812690 it is blowing cold air. Does any one have an idea what could be wrong?

Is it gas or electric? If it's electric, it will have a large, gray 220 volt power cord. If it's not under warranty, you'll have to call a local repairman. It's probably the heating element. Easy things to check. Make sure your lint filter is not clogged. Check the vent cap outside and make sure the flap is not stuck and is easy to open. Using a flashlight, make sure it's not clogged inside the vent either. The back opening of your dryer may be clogged as well, but it may not be easy to check. Hope that helps.

first, check to make sure gas present to unit, and power to the ignitor. if no power, replace timer, if power, check the ignitor for continuity, if open, replace. If ok, check to make sure none of the thermostats are open, if they are, replace. If ok, check gas valve solonoids, they should not appear melted or stuck, if so replace.

My kenmore Elite Dryer model he3 starts but there is no heat, what is up with that and what can I do to fix it since my warranty is over.

Most dryers stop heating due to a clogged vent or duct. Check your duct hose inside the house for lint/water clogs. You will have to remove it to do this. Then check the outside vent for lint clogs and make sure that its opening properly (louvered vents). If thats not the case, call up Sears and use your warranty.

Refrigertor cycle rapidly

2109, start with the overload and relay on the compressor, see if it's contained in a white box. Take it off and shake it, see if it rattles. If so, that's probably the problem. If you find the overload and relay good, the compressor may be bad, the good news is that is covered by warranty for 5 years, parts and labor. The overload and relay will not be covered under warranty, could be expensive if an outside service does the job. Part number for the relay/overload, 4387938. back.
