Question about Kenmore TRIO 77314 Side by Side Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Control pad flashing temp and all lights continuously and ice door continually cycles open and closed

Kenmore Trio french door 25 cubic foot fridge with external ice and water dispenser. Fridge is just over 1 yr old (and past warranty) and the touch control pad is flashing continuously with the ice door continually opening and closing. Water and ice dispenser are not working but fridge and freezer are fine. Service rep came out and thinks it may be the control pad cicuit board as he could not get it to let him in to the programming mode (pressing door alarm button and freezer temp control at same time for 3 seconds). I am waiting to find out the price of the circuit board. Any ideas if this sounds correct?

    thanks for the prompt commentary - can't find the exact circuit board on the site but at least I now have an idea of what it's going to cost.

Hi,
With the problems it is presenting, I would say it's very likely.
However it may take a bit of detective work to find which board is defective.

Check a part suppliers link Here for price comparison so you have some ideas.

Ice flap continues to open and shut, then it sits for a while crazy blinking touch pad.


I would be looking at a new control board. Sometimes you don't know whaTthere going to do and when there going to do it when they are on there way out. The board will tell the unit the temp inside and tell the compresser to turn on or off and to make ice or not. It is the heart and if it is faulty then nothing works properley

Both freezer and fridge just stopped cooling. The lights come on when the doors are open and it sounds as if it's trying to run, but no cooling.


The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. This are basic possibilities which first needs to be checked. But if this possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

We have a Kenmore Elite 79577554600 Refrigerator. The temperature display is freaking out. The numbers keep changing, lights flashing on and off, temperature counting down from 44.


It is running in "store-demo" mode. Fancy light-show, and the compressor turns off (bad!)
Hold down the right-most two buttons (Ice and refrigerator temp) for about 5 seconds. I think the right-door needs to be open for this to work, but not sure.
This will activate the fridge once again.

It sounds like your fridge has problem with the damper stuck open. The damper is in the top-back-center of the fresh food section. I can't tell by the pics I have how to get to it, but looks like it's simple to get to it - just remove the damper cover.
Check the damper for the ice buildup. Clean if needed. Unplug the fridge and check continuity on damper motor. Replace damper if no continuity.
Check the microswitch on the damper assembly. C on switch [where it connects to black wire] should make contact with NC [yellow/red] when button is not pressed, and C with NO [blue/red] should make contact when button is down).
With temp in the fresh food section so low, the damper should be closed, and if it isn't there should be power (110v ac) coming to the motor either continuously until it closes or for a short period of time within a few minutes after you try to set the temperature, can't tell by schematic. Unplug, connect your DMM in "volts ac" parallel to the damper motor (red and green/yellow wires), and plug fridge back in. If it does not show 110v immediately, set the DMM to show the maximum voltage registered, and leave in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, with doors closed. If there was 110v, and the damper is still open - replace damper. Otherwise it's very likely that the control board failed.

The water could have been frozen in the door and melted when your fridge warmed up.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator


This sounds like the Maytag bottom mount that has a High Voltage Control Board problem. Does this have the freezer/fridge temp. display/controls on the left hand fridge door? Whats the model number and on the manufacture tag does it something on it like Code:0304 maybe? Let me know I may have an answer I do work on these for a living.
