    We have had the same problem with ours. tHIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS SINCE WE BOUGHT IT FIVE YEARS AGO. NOW, SEARS CAN'T GET PARTS FOR THE FREEZER DOOR THAT HAS BEEN BROKE FOR 5 WEEKS. WE ARE DEMANDING THEY GIVE US OUR MONEY BACK AND HOPE TO HAVE AN ANSWER IN 48 HOURS. IF NOT, GONNA RAISE ALL HELL AT LOCAL SEARS STORE!

    I forgot, this product has previously had the entire freezer door replaced. Under warranty is one thing but the constant disruption of you life (waiting home for repair person) is not exactly the highlight of life. Sears contract with whomever gives them the lowest price to manufacture their Kenmore Elite line. They had better get smart and ditch this manufacturer or they will not be selling many Kenmore appliances! Without question they are garbage as are LG cell phones and all products they make. Next time Bosch or Whirlpool but always check reviews online before purchase. Sorry, we did not with this garbage.

    In regards to the post above about Sears not knowing of the problem is an outright lie on their part. When ours melted Sears was insistent they come out in a hurry to take a look. Fastest repair appointment I ever made, they were at the door withinh a day or two.

    Well, as of today 09/11/13 "fighting" with SEARS warranty services to replace this LG (Kenmore Elite) refrigerator. Freezer door hinge broke on 07/26/13 and part to repair has been discontinued. SEARS extended warranty servive not what it used to be as they knew of the discontinuation of the hinge assembly (both sides) but NEVER contacted us like we were going to forget not having a freezer. Giving us the run around BIG time as replacing unit or giving us our money back on this POS LG product. With service such as this do not be surprised if SEARS is no longer in business in 5 years. We think the warranty service is stalling to find parts anywhere for this unit while for 7 weeks we have no freezer. No aggerations on this post the warranty service is BAD but not when it almost caught fire as they were on our doorstep in days.

Kenmore elite refrigerator


Are the correct bulbs being used in the fridge? You can't just use 'any'. And of course they should be turning off when the door is closed. You can download the manual for your model from several sites that have them, like manualsonline dot com, and others.

Kenmore elite refrigerator is not cooling, but the freezer seems to be working fine.


Kenmore Elite refrigerators come in several styles, including units with a freezer at the top and units with freezers at the bottom. The top and bottom of the fridge work on different systems. Sometimes the freezer may function perfectly, while the fridge performs poorly. Most issues with the fridge cooling are due to incorrect settings or poor cleaning practices. Checking common problems with the refrigerator will help you diagnose the situation and keep expensive repairs to a minimum
1. Check that the Kenmore Elite refrigerator is plugged in. Inspect the circuit breaker of the home if the refrigerator is plugged in but not running.
2. Pull the unit out from the wall and vacuum the condenser coils at the back of the unit.
3. Turn the temperature control in the Kenmore Elite refrigerator to the "On" position.
4. Turn up the temperature on the temperature control, located inside the unit on the wall.
5. Check the seal along the door for signs of cracks or dryness. If it is damaged, lift up on the seal to expose the screws that hold it in place. Loosen the screws and pull the seal off. Place a new seal on the unit, starting in the corners and working your way around to insert the tabs into the Kenmore Elite fridge door.

I hope i solve you problem.
Have a nice day : )

Elite trio, 795.755 Refrigerator light stays on, getting hot. Refrigerator space warming up to 45 degrees. Pressing in both door switches gives no clue. Both feel smooth.


Some of these Kenmore Elite refrigerators built by LG have a design defect that has been the subject of a class action settlement. The interior lights stay on even if the doors are shut, turning the refrigerator interior into a version of the child's Easy Bake oven toy. There are many cases where plastic interior parts of the refrigerator got so hot they melted. I replaced the 60W incandescent bulbs with 7 Watt LED bulbs just in case. The LED bulbs will not get hot enough to harm anything even if left on indefinitely.
This model also has problems with the wires inside the door (water dispenser side) The wires break inside the door and are not replaceable. I ran new wires through the interior and bypassed the broken wires to avoid buying a whole new door.

Compressor stop running on Kenmore model 596 75523400 can it be reset?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Is the compressor HOT to the touch? If so unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes and plug it back in.
If the compresor is cold then it may be stuck in the auto defrosting mode. When this happens usually either the 60 Deg F Bi-metal thermosat or a thermistor has failed. Items 30 and 31 this link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-59675523400/0583/0161000/M0705003/00010?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

(Evaporator

If that checks out then we start replacing the PTC relay and thermal overload on the compressor IF there is power to the compressor. Otherwise we start looking at temp controllers and themal fuses.
Items 10 and 11 this link:

You make have to access the links above via this page http://www.searspartsdirect.com
Then enter your model number as 596.75523400 under find it fast / model search.

The other possibility is the electronic control item 5 under "controls":

The only way to find out is to read out the circuits with a meter.

Hi, Please tell me how to change the temperature on my elite kenmore.


Klay421 --
Which model Kenmore Elite refrigerator do you have? If you have one of the older manual models, the thermostat is located inside the fridge side. If you have a newer model with digital controls you need to press and hold the the ON/OFF button for 2 seconds until the digital displays for temperature for the Freezer and Refrigerator lights. The Up/Down arrows allows you to adjust the temperature. If you are still having problems, write back. -- SWT

Kenmore elite refrigerator, very hot between doors


Mine was doing the same thing. I pulled the cardboard cover off the back near the bottom and found the fan was not turning and lots of dust buildup. I unplugged it and vacuumed it out and spun the fan by hand and plugged it back in. The fan started and the temp between doors went down. I may have to replace the fan soon.
