Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I am also experiencing the same overheating burning of the lighting unit inside my Kenmore Elite Trio refrigerator (Model# 795.77549600). I bought it in 12/2006 and it now has developed this problem. If I hadn't been home to shut off the power, it would surely have caused a fire! I have contacted Sears, Customer Solutions Dept, and they said that if this is caused by the known problem, of lighting unit staying on and overheating, then it is being repaired for free for the lifetime of the product. I will have a technician come over tomorrow and I am hoping that this will be resolved for free! All of my appliances have come from Sears and I will surely never shop there again if this is not resolved to my satisfaction. I will keep everyone posted on solution....

This will possibly fall in the class of models that were under recall. My advice is to contact Sears and the CONSUMER ALERT Remove your lighyt bulbs and prepare for a disgusting attempt for settling this. I am not telling you you this for any good rate or a bad rate. LG and Maytag made these for Sears and the name then changed to Kenmore Elite Trio. I would like you to visit my web page and do a little reading of our posting's here at Fixya over the past couple years. Wish I had a solution but feel it is my responsibility to inform you. Thank You for Understanding, Sea Breeze

I believe your model is the TRIO model, but the model number you listed will not come up. If yours is the model I think it is the Adaptive Defrost board inside the fresh food compartment is the most likely problem. Come back with the correct model number for example 596.73509 Elite Trio because some models had a few problem. At this moment I believe the ADC board part number 12566102 is the problem causing this. Let me know what you find,Thank You, Sea Breeze

I just purchased a similar model and had the same frustration. Finally called the store and it was in DEMO mode. Open the freezer draw and hold down the Ultra Ice & Refrigerator Temp buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. That worked for me and hope it will do the trick for you.
