Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Kenmore Trio refrigerator (#596.76502500) is not working. The temp is 76degrees. The freezer seems to be working fine. I have switched it off at the circuit breaker and restarted it after 10 min. The electronics and light bulbs work. Any ideas? Kelley

    Same problem. Same symptoms. I turned off the power for 6 hours to let it defrost and melt any hidden ice build up. I turned it back on and have the same symptoms.

The fan that blows cold air from the freezer to cool the refrigerator is not working. If your a little handy with tools its an easy fix. Its located in the freezer. Open your freezer door take off the steel panel at the back of the inside of the freezer. After you remove the panel you will see the fan the blows the cold air up to the Frig. A quick trip to a local appliance store for a new fan with do the trick. Put in the new fan 100% fixed even better than new because the orginal part is defective Kenmore should have recalled them. I have the same frig and its been perfect since I repaced my failed fan.

Kenmore trio refrigerator not working (bottom freezer is fine)


It appears your damper/solenoid has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore Trio: the refridgerator is not getting cool


In the Freezer or Fridge compartment, there is the Evaporator Fan (& Motor) If the freezer is cold, the Evaporator fan motor most likely went bad. Check to see that when the compressor is running, so should be the fan motor. If not, you have to remove it & replace it. It is not an expensive repair unless you call for service on it. Make sure that you unplug the fridge when you replace the fan motor.

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Elite trio


Hello bigmikeegator
Welcome!

You said, you have the Kenmore Elite Trio Bottom Freezer. You moved your refrigerator to a new home and removed the bottom freezer door, but can not seem to figure out exactly how to put it back on correctly.


It's too much for me to tell you myself.
This is easier!
Page 9 shows you how to remove and reinstall doors.

Temp Fluctuations


i wouldnt worry mucha bout the fluxuations in temp, chances are simply a momentary reading perhaps just after a defrost cycle, sometimes new electronics can be a little too sensitive, I would only worry if you actually experience a noticable deiifeence in temp(ie.. your milk doesnt last as long, ice cream not hard as once was,, dairy usually best indicator in temp flux's))) dont worry so much abou the number, unlkess they are consistantly rising without correction

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


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.
