Refrig. sometimes trips GFI, sometimes not. Unplugged plug shows 5 ohms between power contacts. What's up?

Have you checked the GFI with some other appliance? Like a mixer. Sometimes the GFI are overly sensitive.

I can not locate the fan that blows to lower part of the refrigerator

In most older reefers, the fan in the back of the freezer does the entire job. It blows cold air through a duct that leads to the ******. If you have no cold air in the ******, but your freezer is still cold...but barely, your fan is shot.

Ice forming in the top freezer, leaks in the

Sounds like the defrost circuit of your fridge has failed. If you remove the back panel of the freezer compartment, you will see the evap coil encased with ice. Normally the defrost circuit will turn off the compressor and turn on a heater to warm the coil to about 45 degrees to melt any frost build up. After about 40 minutes the compressor will kick back in to keep your fridge cool again.

The typical failures are that the defrost heater burns out. If you have an older fridge, the defrost timer fails to advance, causing the fridge to stay in cooling or defrost mode.

Kenmore Refrigerator 795.75052 Gear Support Assembly (how to attach)

You may have a problem with the gear assembly for the freezer tray on your Kenmore Elite refrigerator. The gear assembly is responsible for supporting the rear of the basket and keeping it in place. Your description sounds like your gear assembly may be an older generation and may not have screw holes for attaching the gears to the support arm sliders. The gears may be designed to be snapped into place on the support arm sliders. The plastic tab you mentioned at the back of the slider is likely the attachment point for the swivel hub on the gear. To attach the gears, align the swivel hub with the plastic tab, then gently push it in until it snaps into place. The tab may be jammed or stuck; in that case, you can gently pry it loose with a small flat-head screwdriver. If you continue to have trouble installing the gear assembly, consider contacting Kenmore's customer service for further assistance. They can provide you with a detailed exploded parts diagram or even a video tutorial on installing the gear assembly properly

Kenmore Dehumidifier Kenmore model 251.50701011 control panel flickering on and off

If the control panel on your Kenmore dehumidifier is flickering on and off, there could be a few potential causes for this issue:
  1. A loose or damaged control panel display ribbon cable. This cable connects the control panel to the main circuit board and any damage or looseness could cause the control panel to malfunction.
  2. A faulty control panel display. If the control panel display is not functioning properly, it could cause the control panel to flicker or not work at all.
  3. A faulty main circuit board. The main circuit board is responsible for controlling the various functions of the dehumidifier, and any issues with it could cause problems with the control panel.
To troubleshoot this issue, you may want to try the following:
  1. Check the control panel display ribbon cable for any visible damage or looseness.
  2. If the cable appears to be in good condition, try resetting the dehumidifier by unplugging it and then plugging it back in.
  3. If the issue persists, you may need to contact a professional for further assistance in diagnosing and repairing the issue with your dehumidifier.

Fridge not cooling sometimes!

This is most likely due to the defrost thermometer. However, proper testing is recommended by a technician to be sure. It is located at the back of the inside freezer cabinet. You will have to remove the shelves and drawers to access a panel secured with hex screws. When the panel is off, the small round silver piece with a red and black wire is the defrost thermometer. Be careful of the fins around the coils as they are extremely sharp.

Please help - F01 ERROR CODE ON KENMORE HE5t electric steam dryer is there only (1 ) - F01 CODE AND IS IT FOR THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL BOARD? PLEASE HELP

F01 is a general error code that indicates a problem with the electronic control board. The clicking sound you are hearing may be the result of a failed component on the control board. It is possible that the control board may need to be replaced. However, it is also possible that the issue could be with another component in the dryer, such as a faulty relay or a damaged wire connection. To troubleshoot the problem, I would recommend checking all of the wire connections to ensure that they are secure. You should also check the relay and make sure that it is functioning properly. If the issue persists, you may need to consider replacing the electronic control board. If you are not comfortable working on the dryer yourself, I would recommend contacting a professional appliance repair service. They will have the tools and expertise needed to diagnose and repair the problem.

My Kenmore refrigerator 795.73053 is giving me a code of F dh how to resolve?

The Kenmore 795.73053 refrigerator is made by LG. The F dH code indicates that the defrost cycle took over 80 minutes or the defrost temperature sensor did not report a temperature over 46.4 degrees (F). This could be caused a failed or disconnected temperature defrost fuse, a problem with the defrost heater or a blockage of the defrost drain. If the drain opening is clogged by ice, pour warm water over the drain line until the opening is completely clear. The defrost heater could have the electrical wiring come loose. In that case, just replacing the wiring harness will solve the problem. Similarly, if the fuse is intact, try securing the connector so it doesn't come loose. If the fuse has failed replace it. If the fuse is good and no wiring is loose, replace the heater. Note: check the full model number of the refrigerator. The parts diagram for the 795.73053411 is here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/3ubdo9sqjd-000582/kenmore-79573053411-bottom-mount-refrigerator-parts . The all parts list has the defrost heater. If you unplug the refrigerator for at least 30 seconds, the error code will be reset. Otherwise, the error will disappear after the system correctly defrosts. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells
