This is a link to the owners manual for your Kenmore.
On Page 8 there is something about the light.

No power to left rear turn/ brake light


Check the display. Ask a helper to step on the brake pedal while you check the lights from the rear. If no lights appear, check the fuse that connects the brake lights. The owners manual will show the location of the fuse box and which fuse is for the brake lights. Pull out the fuse and look at the wire in the central window. If the wire is broken, replace the fuse. Make sure the new fuse is not blown, and carries the same amperage.
Take note of lights that are out, if any are working. The problem may be cured by replacing the bulb in a brake light that's out. A burned out bulb has a broken filament and a dark brown spot on one side. Check the owners manual for bulb type.
Check the circuit if replacement bulbs and fuses do not restore the lights. Find the wiring diagram in the vehicle assembly manual. The circuit for the brake lights runs from the battery to the fuse, to the pedal switch, to a connection plug, to the lights. The circuit has to be checked with a volt tester at all points.
Check the battery power and the light on your volt tester. Turn the ignition key far enough to activate the electrical systems. Turn on the lights to check for battery power. If the battery has power, ues it to check the volt tester. Put the black lead (the ground) from the volt tester on the negative battery terminal. Briefly touch the red tester light on the positive terminal. The light on the volt tester should flash brightly.
Test the wiring to the fuse. Clip the ground wire to solid metal near the fuse. Touch the light tip to both sides of the fuse. Both should light the tester. If neither side lights, the wire between the battery and fuse is bad. If only one side lights, the fuse is blown.
Test the switch and wiring. Touch the light tip of the tester to both terminals on the brake pedal switch without putting any pressure on the pedal. One should carry power and the other should not. When both show power, the switch is stuck and the brake lights are always on. If neither shows power, the wiring between the fuse and the switch is bad. Now check both switch terminals while the pedal is depressed. Both sides should light the tester. If not, the switch is bad.
Check the connection plug. Unplug the connection and refer to the vehicle manual to identify the brake light wire. Touch the tester light on the brake light wire at the inner socket on the battery side. If the tester lights, the power is flowing to this point. If not, the wire between the plug and the pedal switch is bad.
Check the socket. Plug in the connector plug and remove the bulb. Touch the contact inside the socket. If the tester lights, the socket is good. The socket and wire running to the plug should be replaced if the tester doesn't light.
Check the bulb with the ground wire. The bulb must be in its socket. The ground wire running to the socket should be black or brown. Stab the tester through the insulation. If the tester lights, the bulb is good. Replace the bulb if it doesn't light.
Check the ground wire. Remove some of the insulation around the ground wire. Twist one end of the extra wire around the exposed ground wire. Touch the other end to a solid piece of metal. If the brake light comes on, the ground wire is bad.

My son put foil on the tip of a light bulb and screwed it into the socket well when he turn the light on i heard a loud pop. the dimmer swtich looks ans smell burnt how can i fix this?


If your dimmer smells burned, it probably is.
As general rule, there are no repair parts for in-wall electrical devices since they are contained inside sealed plastic shell to prevent fires.
The burning smell was high heat and melting that would have caused a fire if in-wall electrical devices were sold without safeguards.
Replace dimmer.
Be sure to check watt rating on side of old and new dimmers to match correct load rating.
Take out of son's allowance, and make the future electrical genius help read small print on instructions and install new device.
Turn power off to replace device.
Use non-contact voltage tester to check that power is off.

The green light is blinking on the supply unit but it not coming on or booting up , i need to know if the supply unit is bad


Close examination of your power supply may reveal if the psu is bad.

When the power supply is plug in ac socket the green indicator led inside the motherboard will lit steady green. See if by turning on the cpu you will see some sparks in the power supply connector attached to the motherboard. This is a clear indication of a bad or shorted psu.

You can also smell if there is a burning inside the psu.

See if the fan inside the psu is working if not then its a clear indication of a bad psu.

Using a multimeter if you have one measure the dc voltage coming from the supply connector. Insert the black probe to one of the black wires in the connector. And the red probe to the red wire in the connector. the reading should be +12VDC. Put the red probe to the red wire and it should read +5VDC. Any readings below this, means bad psu.

Measure also the output voltage when there is a load in the power supply. Connect a CD-ROM drive or hardisk and measure again the voltage. Dropping of voltage when put some loads is a clear indication of a bad power supply unit (psu).

I hope this will help you.
Thank you for using Fixya!

My headlight burn , i change the burn socked and


Hi and welcome to the site,

Depending on the version, there is a hidden headlight switch inside the start button switch that switches off when starting. In some instances, the contacts may have corrosion or have burned when the headlight socket had a problem. Other than the dimmer switch this is another possibility to consider.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Compact fluorescent flickers when the switch is off.


You could be getting power from the source in the switch ... does this flickering occur with a non illuminated switch? Have you tried the CFL in other sockets? Have you checked the socket in question for proper polarity? (Hot wire should be broken by the switch and that hot wire should be connected the bottom of the CFL in the socket). Does your switch have a white wire for the neutral connection or are you using the ground wire to illuminate the switch ... or is there a different lind of light in the switch and/or do you know?

Normally ... let me say again ... normally, (in a traditional sense) an illuminated switch should have a neutral connection, a ground lug and the expected 'in' and 'out' for the switch leg. Normally, I would expect the switch leg to use a black from the power source (normally found in the box where the socket is mounted) and a white from the 'off' side of the switch to the socket.

I tried to draw you a diagram ... but it didnt work out and you probably already get the picture.

If everything checks out ... and it still flickers, replace the switch with a non-illuminated switch or use a incadescent light until they are no longer available.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Headlight wire connection melted n causing light to go off


First. I would go to the library and pu a chiltons/moter
or mitchells repair manual with wiring diagrams. Then
I would put the wiring back to factory specs. Then I
would deal with the problem that caused somone
to mickey mouse the light wires. It may be a headlight switch/dimmer switch or the drl module
(daytime running lights) maybe a short or bad conn.
But I can't tell you with any degree of accuracy,
what to check to diagnose the problem you're having.
With the wiring the way it is and not able to see it.
As for whats happening now, check any taped connections for a short also you'll need to replace
the melted socket. But when you install the socket
also install a 20amp inline fuse to the +power wire
to the socket. This will help avoid any more meltdown
until you're ready to wire it back to normal, just keep
some spare fuses handy. Free food for thought.
Good luck.

No headlights, no interior light, and no power to the stereo.


1st check inside and under hood fuse boxes for bad fuses, smell boxes, if wiring went bad should smell baked wire smell around boxes. you can run wires direct from lights to battery or through $5 switch installed into your dash (autozone etc) to fix cheaply

Fan no longer recieves power.


don't rule out bad motor yet, nor anything with a wire. Many possible problems: 1.) motor badly manufactured with wire ready to disconnect 2.) motor "fused" or has a wire that has melted...this can happen quickly with minimal smell 3.) some other wire inside unit has become disconnected
