Question about Kenmore 24.8 cu. ft. TRIO Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Kenmore Model 795.7731 fan making noise

Fan in bottom freezer is getting covered with ice and makes noise until I bump it to clear the ice from around the fan. I suspect my defrost heater is not working, but I cannot find instructions for running the defrost cycle manually.

    I have the same problem.  This leads to an error message of er FF and shuts the refrigerator.  Sears wants $500+ to fix this problem among others (light bulbs do not shut off and cause food to get warm or melt - had to remove the light bulbs)

If you call sears about the light bulb problem, they will send someone to fix it at no charge. Just mention that there is a service flash because of a fire hazard. I found out about it here:

While the freezer is cold, cut out defrost thermostat and measure resistance, if open, replace, if it's ok check defrost heater.
Temporarily short the wires that went to the defrost thermostat and now force defrost.
If no defrost, you have a bad adaptive defrost board.

The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.

Kenmore refrigerator making high pitch noise top front


could be the ice maker or the evaporator fan motor.you can try lifting the arm up on the ice maker and see if it stops,this will shut off the ice maker.also when you open the freezer door to lift the arm on the ice maker the evap fan motor should start when you open the door,you should hear it blowing around,is this the noise you hear?these are the two things i can think of that could make a noise up top,if not it could be the compressor or the condenser fan motor but these are down the bottom back of machine but still could be the problem,if the ice maker and evap fan motor both in the freezer are ok pull out the machine and remove the bottom back panel and check to see if the noise is coming from there where the condenser fan motor and compressor are,you're going to have to do some detective work to find the noise,hope this helps you out.

I have a Kenmore elite bottom freezer model. The fan started making a funny noise.


The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace the blade. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged and rubbing against it. Check the rear condenser fan as well for faults. It is possible that the noise is coming from the motor itself. If that is the case, you will need to replace the affected motor.

I am getting a loud noise from the freezer compartment of my older, Kenmore refrigerator.


The noise may be a failing evaporator fan, but it's more likely to be ice that has accumulated around the fan and the fan blades are hitting it.

You will need to access the fan behind the cover in the freezer to check this out. The unit should be off so the blades aren't moving when you check.

Compressor is making very loud clunk when shutting off.


I think the wire was kinda expensive. If I were you I would try to save the fridge. I think you should unplug it for a couple hours, take everything out for a while and remove any ice. Once the fridge reached room temp, the refrigerant should have made its way back to the compressor. Plug it back in and see if it makes the noise again.
It might just be the fan in the freezer. I would try the unplug/deice for a few hour method first because it is free before you try to replace a fan that might be bumping ice. Good luck!

Our 8 year old refrigerator has recently begun making a continuous tapping sound. The sounds stops when you open the bottom freezer door.


the compresor fan is might make that sound or the fan in your freezer is tuching something like build up ice... see if you can reach it and clean it.

It is still cooling but was making a loud sound unplugged it over night now it seems to be working again, what made sound and will it come back


Good day,
Motors make noise. There are three motors. One behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
Another in the back rear of the machine, called a condenser cooling, fan motor, and lastley, the compresssor itself which is locacated in he bottom rear as well.
One reason could be ice building up around the freezer fan motor and hitting the blades of the fan.
If it is a Whirlpool/Kenmore make then that fan motor could be going bad.
But without a make and complete model number that's all the info I can provide.
As well, we'll need to know how long it takes to re-appear, and if it is constant or intermitent noise problem.

Loud fan noise near bottom of freezer on my kenmore elite


There is a fan down on the bottom of your unit it sounds to me like the fan is making the noise as the bearings are getting dry. You should be able to move the unit out from the wall and get behind and look at the fan right next to the compressor. let me know how it goes. ken

Model # 795.75286.402 Motor running load


The evap fan motor most likely is running loud due to a ice build up around the fan and the fan blade is hitting it and making a loud , irriting noise. Shut the ref off. If you are mechanical, remove the draw and the back cover, clear out the ice. Also, the ice may have been caused because the sensors-- thermistors--- are not located properly. look at the ceiling of the freezer and you see a small holder piece. the part is located there. tahke the cover off and take the thermistor that may be buried in the ceiling and pull it down and locate it in the holder, reinstall the holder. Not also, there is another one in the ref section to do the same thing
