Hi,
Thanks for taking this question.
Kenmore 22 cft side by side does not have air circulation. Freezer is cold at the bottom (ranges 5-45 deg from bottom to top). Refrigerator section is 30- 60 deg from bottom to top. Thermostat is good; compressor is working; no ice deposit on the evaporator coils; condenser coils have been cleaned; defrost heater is working. I do not feel the air draft I used to notice whenever opened refrigerator door. Is it possible that the air recirculation fan not operating. Location of this fan in the refrigerator? Regards, Prem

SOURCE: Moldy Ice from Ice Maker

Hi: Does it have a water filter? Sears parts is offline at the moment, so I can't tell. Most of the newer models do. The 596.xxx tells me that it was built in the Amana factory for Kenmore. Most likely there is a water filter in the top of the fresh food compartment. It has been growing mold in storage, and the lines too. It's on the upper right side, behind a housing with a tab to release it. Lower the housing and remove the water filter. Did you receive the bypass plug with the ref.? It looks like a large plastic wing nut with the same fitting as the water filter. If so put it in and flush the system with city water. Most city water has chlorine to clean your lines. If you install a new filter without flushing the lines it will remove the chlorine as it's supposed to do, but the lines from the filter wont get clean. If you don't have the plug, buy one. Flush the system and then install the filter. I hope this helps, Jeff

SOURCE: Have a new Kenmore elite with bottom freezer. Just

Did the IM fill with water? It can take up to 24 hours for the first batch of ice but if temperatures are correct it can be in 2-4. The lines do have to purge the air or you will not get a full fill at first.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Having determined your icemake is PN W10190960 , here is a link that will help you test your icemaker:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

The steps are pretty straight forward and will isolate exactly which component of the icemaker / system has failed.

I would like to note that these icemakers are very reliable. They do occasionally fail but most of the time the problem is the freezer is not defrosting properly so the airflow through the freezer is blocked by ice build-up in the evaporator coils due to that defrosting problem.

Your unit has an electronic control board that controls the defrost circuitry.

If you check out the icemaker assy per the first link and still have the problem I would recommend doing a manual defrosting by unplugging the unit. Then remove the contents of the freezer section and place a fan blowing into the freezer section for just over 2 hours. This makes a water mess so be prepaired.

After the manual defrosting cycle restart the unit and reload the freezer contents. After about 12 hours check the icemaker to see if it made any ice at that point. If this solves your icemaking problem it will only be temporary if you still have an automatic defrost cycle problem. Your unit should defrost at least 3 times in 24 hours.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly

Motor was losing power and burning


If you're Toro electric blower is slowing down, throwing sparks, overheating or not starting you may need to replace the carbon brushes. Replacing brushes and cleaning commutator early can prevent damage to motor armature!
There are Electric Motor replacement carbon brushes on E-bay for all three motor sizes (7 AMP, 10.5 AMP, and 12 AMP) of Toro Leaf Blowers (Toro Rake and Vac Super and Ultra Blower and "850" Vacuums)
Search E-bay for: "Toro Blower Carbon Brush"
- 12 Amp leaf blowers Toro Super (Old model 51552) through Toro Ultra (New model 51609).
- Toro 850 Super Blower Shredder-Vac 12 Amp (model 51575).
- 10.5 Amp leaf blowers Toro Old through Toro New model 51573.
- 7 Amp leaf blowers Toro model 51586 and other Toro 7 amp blowers.

Wiring diag. for mod. 407-E Ice Cream Maker


Need the serial number, voltage (ie; 115v or 208v), 60 or 50 hz.

The only exact diagram for an 407-e is 50hz.
An M will be close in most cases as long as we have the serial number or Mfg. date code.
If it is a 407-e 115/60Hz with a blue id plate it is at least 15 yrs old.
