Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Mod #76523

Kenmore Elite Model # 76523 is experiencing what I gather to be a rather common failure of the refrigerator portion of this bottom freezer unit.   The freezer is fine and holding temp, but the refrigerator portion is another story.   The digital display is operating but cannot be set.   It will show that it is set to 38 degrees and then pops back to 68.   I have of course called Sears who was of no help whatsoever and couldn't get anyone out for four days.   I have called another service who will respond in 24 hours!   Needless to say, but of course I will anyway, this will be my last Kenmore appliance.   They've been great for decades but it seems times have changed.

    The cheap plastic fan that came as original equipment with the refrigerator was the problem...replaced it with a 'real' fan and the problem was solved. It took about 12 hours for the unit to come back to temp. Thank You!

The problem is the fan unit that pushes cold air up to the fridg, usually located nere the back of the freezer.

Is the food frozen solid in the freezer? Does the ice maker get any water to it? Do you see any ice buildup in the freezer?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

I hate to just paste a link to the answer but this answer is quite thorough:

If you have frost build up in the freezer compartment it can impede operation of the fan. Frost build up is usually a secondary symptom of an automatic defrost system problem. i.e it is not defrosting... due to a failure of one of the following:
-defrost heater
-defrost thermostat
-defrost control

Hold the door light switch depressed and see if the light goes out and that the fan is running.

If the fan has failed the part number is around $60.00 usually. There are AC and DC fans in this unit.

Kenmore model 106.53532300 side by side. Replaced compressor start kit, compressor now runs. Freezer freezes but refer still warm (60 degrees) what could be wrong


Are you cleaned the coils? Is it frosted?

If it is frosted then usually one of the defrost components has failed; maybe the defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost thermostat.

Check it and keep us updated.

I guess you are talking fahrenheit temperature?
This is ok for the freezer.
The problem could be;

Fridge Area Light Will Not Turn Off


Yes unit was built by LG. The light broplrm is most likely the motherboard along with the light socket assembly that would have to be rreplaced. There is service information that the repair should be cover by an extened warranttee from the manufscture. The service flash sf46-515 indicates this and was recently put out. call Sears for service. Please note: recheck your model number as the one covered in the service info ends in the number :"one" insted of a "0"

Kenmore Elite Bottom Freezer Mod. #795 75544401


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.

Water leaking out bottom of refrig/freezer


Sounds like maybe two things. Your freezer isn't closing correctly and condensation is forming, bad seal maybe. Other option is you need to clean the pan on the bottom of the fridge. Condensation gathers there and it is normal, but if you alot of crud down there it will cause water to gather. Hope this helps...
