It could be one of several problems -

1) Failed compressor relay
2) Failed compressor
3) Failed component in the defrost system
4) Bad door gaskets
5) Failed door light switch

Questions to answer -

1) Was the compressor (large black domed item with three tubes (one stubbed) at the bottom back of the frig.) warm or hot?
2) Was the condenser fan running?
3) Was there thick ice buildup inside the louvers of the back wall of the freezer?
4) Was the fan running inside the freezer?
5) Look up my "Tips and Tricks" article on testing your door gaskets.
6) Open the door slightly and look inside as best you can. Is the light on or off? Continue to open the door until you see the light go on to confirm the light switch is working.
Your response will give us an idea where to look to find the problem.

Light bulbs staying on and melting plastic


Hi, I've seen quite a few of these unit's either with the "kenmore" badge or the actual maker, LG/Samsung. The problem either lyes in the door switch being faulty, or the relay on the main control board at the back. If your's has reached the point of melting all the interface control, light cover and housing, that's unfortunate. The new light socket's and deflector comes with the rework kit which includes a limit/cut-out bi-metal wired into light assembly to insure it win't re-occur. The bi-metal will shut the light off if it stick's "on". The main board should also be replaced. I'd suggest you consider hiring a pro appliance tech. You may also consider contacting Sears to inquire about any possible warranty. Hope that help's. Please take a second and rate the info provided to you here at fixya. Thank you and good luck. Macmarkus :)

It appears your door switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question((()))
