Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a sears kenmore kitchen mate model 106.8770981 ; and recently replaced the thermostat..... The problem now is that there doesn't seem to be a feedback loop indicating that there is more or less food in the refrigerator and as a result it either keeps things to warm or freezing depending on what is in the box. As a result the thermostat settings have to be changed constantly.... Any Ideas

Step one; did you replace the old thermstat with a manufacturers original thermostat?
Off the shelf thermostats do not have the same settings as an original manufacturers thermostat.
Step two; Did you replace the thermostat in exactly the same place and way as the original? This is important.
Finally there is no feed back loop? this is a typical comment from an engineer. Domestic fridges are built to a price and luxuries like feed bck loops are not deemed necessary

Owners manual for kenmore power-mate # 116

Greetings from GoVacuum,

I wasn't able to find the manual for the Kenmore model, however I did find the instruction manual for the corresponding Panasonic canister vacuum cleaner. Your particular Kenmore model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears, and then Sears puts the Kenmore name on the vacuum cleaner. They are identical internally, and have the same parts and components, besides the filter that is behind the bag. Sears makes Panasonic put a specially designed filter in the Kenmore's so that the customer has to go back and purchase that filter from Sears.

To download the instruction manual, please visit the link below;

You can also find a parts schematic of the power head below if you need to purchase parts;

Cannot find a kenmore ovent thermostat part #1314539

Locate the model # for this appliance. Locate appliance repair parts store. Most can cross the SEARS model # to the manufacturers model # & identify a replacement part. Even for out of production stoves etc. I have done this many times. Sears Kenmore buys the stoves from different manufacturers. Take the part with you if you can.

check the reset button on the brush assembly which is also called the power mate. if not then take it to your local sears repair center. if it is the pc board. sears has them in stock. I think it is about $7 for the part.
