Question about Kenmore 73123 Air Conditioner

Open Question

Have a kenmore slider casement a/c model #580.75123700. It cools ok, but while it is running it makes a loud intermittent noise like revving up a motor. Erum-erum-Gets so loud can hardly hear the TV and trying to sleep. Any ideas what the problem is and can a repair man fix the problem? Thanks

SOURCE: Kenmore wont agitate or spin

Mindurrs, your motor coupling has gone to the great beyond. Time for mourning has passed and now it must be replaced. The job takes about an hour and parts run about $10.00, ready? First, go to your local appliance parts retailer and purchase a coupling, part #285753. You'll need this for repairs. UNPLUG THE WASHER!!! Standing in front of the washer, you'll see two screws on either side of the control panel... remove these then flip the control panel over. Now, toward the right side, you'll see a wire harness that plugs into the top of the top panel, disconnect this. Now, on either side of the top panel, you'll see two brass colored clips. Take a screwdriver and poke it into the hole, use it as a pry bar. Pry the handle of the screwdriver toward the wall behind the washer, the clip will pop out. Now tilt the entire cabinet of the washer toward you to about a 45 degree angle then lift it out of there and set it aside out of the way for now. OK, now we're into the guts of the washer... Look below and in the center, you'll see the drain pump (it has 2 big hoses attached). Behind that, you'll see the motor... that's what you'll be taking off. On the right side of the motor, you'll see the electrical connections. Remove the long white one from the motor. (CAUTION!!! THIS NEXT STEP MUST BE DONE, OTHERWISE PERSONAL INJURY MAY RESULT!!!) You'll see a black round thing mounted to the motor on the right hand side, this is the capacitor. It has 2 red wires on it. (It's basically a 120 volt battery that is just waiting for you to touch it so it can shock you, badly) THIS MUST BE DISCHARGED (voltage drained off) BEFORE CONTINUING. Remove the 2 wires using insulated needle nose pliers. Now, discharge the cap by touching both terminals of the cap at the same time with your needle nose pliers. This will discharge the capacitor so it's safe to handle. Now, above and below the motor, you'll see 2 clips mounted on it, remove the screws that keep these clips in place then (with a flat head screwdriver) pry the clips off the motor. The motor and pump will drop out of there. Rotate the whole thing off to the left (with the hoses still attached to the pump). Now you can see the broken coupling (compare the old one and the new one). Pry the old pieces off the motor shaft and the transmission shaft and throw 'em away. Install the new coupling (notice the semi-triangular shape of the inside of the plastic coupling? I use my screwdriver handle... poke the handle into the coupling, place the coupling squarely on the shaft, then tap [don't BANG] it home with a hammer) and rebuild in the reverse order of dis-assembly! Sounds complicated, but it's not. I've done a thousand of these and it took me longer to type this than it would have for me to do it for you! And, for what it's worth, you have a good washer there. It's actually made by Whirlpool, and well worth the repair.

I had the same problem and it went on few months. Then the final spin didn't work and I could smell something buring. Called AHS and they sent a tech, who said it was the bearing. Cost about $350. to fix. Will be replacing the washer soon, I don't think we paid too much more than this at the scratch and dent place.

SOURCE: Right Door is making loud popping noise

After reading these posts, I fixed my refrigerator door in less than 5 minutes. The little black plastic cam on the bottom hinge was loose. To fix it, take the hinge cover off of the top with an 8mm socket, and remove the three 8mm screws holding the top hinge on. Remove the door by lifting up off of the bottom hinge and set it aside. On the bottom hinge is a black plastic cam held on by an 8mm screw. The screw on mine was really loose. Tightening it and putting the door back on made it work like new. You probably don't have a bad cam, just a loose one.

I have a model GE JVM1653BD 001 microwave. Sometimes when it runs it makes a loud growling sound. It appears to be heating normally though. Intermittantly makes this noise.


I have the same model ending in 003, and it has made this noise for most of its life of several years now. Every now and again it runs quietly.

My theory is the cooling fan (not the hood fan) is making noise. The problem began within the first year of operation, and up till now everything is in good working order otherwise. There is no odor of failing parts.

My installation book has no electrical circuit diagrams, and I came upon your question when searching the topic.

My kenmore freezer is making a lous noise that


Is it still cooling ok - or is it going a bit weird ?

It could be the flow control solenoid - that affects where the gas goes - or the compresor motor (big black thing).

If it does not cool at all - it will need a new run capacitor on the compressor.
If it seems to cool ok - but sometimes too much - then suspect the solenoid coil / control for this.

Neither are that expensive.

I have a kenmore casement model number 25378066890. I can clean the filter easily but I want to get behind the filter to made sure the front of the coils is dust free. How do I remove the cover to be able...


you have to remove the unit from the window and unscrew the cover which will allow you to clean the inside of the evap and condenser coil and oil the fan motor if it has oilers the easy way to clean it is to take it to a self use car wash. do not use the strong spray as it can bend the fins.
