Kenmore refridgerator 7 years old

Stopped working a week ago thought left door opened this week stopped again and had a tech come in he took out the relay said here that sound it was a clicking he said it's the compresser 600.00 to replace. I opt not to have it done he left with the refriderator not plugged I decided to plug it in when I did this the fridg stated to work again we hadn't clean underneath and the front vent so now it is all cleaned out and working like a charm.
Could you please tell me if this will happen again Also, do you think the tech should have check the wires on the compressor

Hi,
If the fridge has a grille round the back that gives off the heat, that might be covered with fluff and spiders which will be reducing it's ability to dissipate the heat from the compressor. It might be worth having a look at that. Otherwise, it might keep going for 25 years like mine has :-)
Hope this helps, D.

My model nn-p295wf microwave stopped working ,all power just stopped, about a year ago. I took it to a repair shop and they replaced the DIODE and the fuse, then it worked again. Afew weeks ago it happened...


Replace the magnetron, safety fuse and diode as a set and check the door interlock switches.
That should get it working for another year or so.
Don't forget microwave mains fuses are special sand filled and semisurge type.

Refridgerator and Freezer Not Cooling (2 year old fridge)


Some of these had problems with the door light switches between the doors. They also control the fans. The top and bottom both have fans in back. Try opening top door and holding door light switch in. Wait for a couple minutes to see if fan comes on. Try with freezer too. If not coming on may need switch.

This is a known problem with this model. Call 800-847-9083 and give them the model and serial number to see if your unit is covered by a recall on the control board. I called a few weeks ago and they sent the part and a tech to install it for free on my 3 year old machine.

We have a Kenmore model 596.71864101 that is probably around 10 years old. The freezer is doing what it should but the refrigerator is not cooling. It did the same thing a few weeks ago, but suddenly...


There is a fan in the rear of the freezer that delivers cold air to the frig. Turn temp control down to make the freezer call for cold, the fan should also turn on, even if the door is open. This is an easy self install if it is the fan.

Kenmore Elite HE 5t washer ( 7 months old)


hmm there is no f21 code there is a F02 code which means the washer is not draining which seems to be what you describe. Did you take the front axcess cover off and check the pump sump area?? Also check to see if the drain motor hums when drain/spin is selected if no hum and motor sits there and no blockage in trap you either have a faulty drain pump or main control board. Washer is still under factory warranty at 7 months so call whirlpool and they will send a tech out. Dont forget to rate my solution as solved if i answered your question accurately.....Thanks!!
