20 Most Recent Kenmore 74889 / 74882 / 74884 Top Freezer Refrigerator Questions & Answers

Is it the cover or the light bulb that isn't coming out? The cover for the 74889 needs to be pushed up and then pull it forward and down. It is hanging by a tab that holds until the angle of the cover is changed to a shallow angle relative to the back of the fridge. The light bulb should unscrew by turning it counterclockwise. If the bulb was previously overtightend, then you may need to use something to improve your grip on the bulb. I sometimes use the plastic jar opener sheets. If the bulb breaks, remove the remainder of the bulb from the socket with pliers (I use needle-nose or similar long straight blade pliers held open to the width of the butlb).

You should unplug the appliance while changing the bulb.

The manual for the Kenmore 74889 is available here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/5899/KENMORE-Top-Mount-Refrigerator-L0411041?brand_name_search=Kenmore+74889 . Other Kenmore manuals can be found by using the search engine here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals .

I hope this helps.

If the freezer is located above the fridge, the air from the freezer drops into the fridge to create the cooling in the fridge. So what I would look for is a blocked vent from the freezer to the fridge, which is usually located on the top and or back of the fridge inside of cores. You can get a frost or ice build up in there and block the air flow to the fridge, that is usuall the problem. I would also heck the dial for temp control in the fridge, I know my kids have changed it before on me.

I cannot locate any model number with what you have provided. Schematics for boards in appliances are very difficult to obtain. They are proprietary. You may end up having to test each component with test equipment. There are several type of test gear that you may need.

Check to see if the unit it level, sounds like it is not. The unit may be like a Samsung model that has this issue. The tray that catches the ice is supposed to be slanted towards the back of the unit.
