Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite purchased 1/2003 106.53606202, It does not cool.. I put it into the service diagnostic Mode. Step 1 the the FC said 0, RC said 1, water filter status indicator said 1. Step 2 the FC said 0, RC said 2, and the water filter status said 1. Step 3 the fan motor went on, FC said 0, RC said 3, no other numbers to the right. step 4, FC 0, RC 4, no other numbers to the right, I did not hear the compressor come on. Step 5, FC 0, RC 5, no other numbers to the right . I heard some fan come on. Step 6, FC 0, RC 6, no other numbers to the right. I heard something ??? then, pressed the water filter staus button again and it went back into normal cooling operation mode. I do hear a clicking sound when I would hope the compressor would turn on but the compressor and the fan down in the bottom back of machine do not come on.. What do I need to do to fix this myself, if possible???

SOURCE: Samsung RS2555SL humming noise

don't know this model specifically, but have had loads of problems with these samsung fridge-freezers. the no water in drinks dispensor is probably due to the water bottle at the bottom of the fridge being frozen. this is endemic with samsung the noise you hear is ice hitting fan. samsung use two systems for fan. the one i think you have is separate fans for fridge and freezer and a separate evaperator for fridge and freezer. take of the back plate of the fridge and you will find the fan mounted in it. disconnect the plug and socket connection. you will probably find ice build up round the fan blade. melt off with hot water. the bar you had showing on the "8" is a fault code - the most common fault being the defrost termination sensor. unless you are experienced, this is not really a diy appliance

SOURCE: Kenmore 106.53603202 stopped cooling making a clicking sound

It sounds like you have a burned out start relay on the compressor.
Pull the fridge out and remove the cover at the back. You will see the compressor. The relay plugs onto the compressor and the wires plug on to the relay.
Either the relay is burned out or the compressor is locked up. The only way to know for certain is to replace the relay. The relay is the problem on your model about 98% of the time. You can get one from any Whirlpool parts dealer for around $40, it will cost you around $280 for sears to replace it. The part number is 8201786.
Be sure you replace it with the correct replacement part, a fit-all or 3-in-1 start relay will work for a while but will damage your compressor over time.
Post back if you have any questions.
Mike

Own the same model, the icemaker and the dispenser work properly but the leak is top center of the refrigerator compartment.

This usually indicates that the compressor is working too hard and drawing too much current. The click that you hear is a safety shut-off. Possible causes of this are numerous and usually require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a bad start relay.

There is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system.

Check your refrigerator owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator, there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor.

Hello Amelia;

My Name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have a brand new unit off the floor. You do not have component failure problems.

You purchased a floor model. Floor models are set in the; "Demo Mode". In this mode your unit will not cool. Taking a unit out of the demo mode depends on the model. You need to contact your place of purchase to determine what buttons you need to press to get the unit out of the demo mode.

The people who deliver the units for Sears are contractors. Physical contract laborers. Most can not speak English.

I should know, I am a former Sears Home Service refrigeration/ A&E factory Service technician; all under the same umbrella. I have heard all the complaints about Sears deliveries.

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling


There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.

Fridge Area Light Will Not Turn Off


Yes unit was built by LG. The light broplrm is most likely the motherboard along with the light socket assembly that would have to be rreplaced. There is service information that the repair should be cover by an extened warranttee from the manufscture. The service flash sf46-515 indicates this and was recently put out. call Sears for service. Please note: recheck your model number as the one covered in the service info ends in the number :"one" insted of a "0"
