Hello David,

  • Yes, Kenmore Refrigerators use LG Compressors.
  • There are two types of controllers used in the linear compressor system.
- The "E"-inverter system is used with the FC75LANE compressor.
- The "A"-inverter system is used with the FC90LANA compressor.
  • The two types are not interchangeable because the FC75LANE uses an Inverter CVCF (Constant Voltage Constant Frequency)
and the FC90LANA an Inverter VVVF (Variable Voltage Variable Frequency)
Here is a link you may find helpful.
Good Luck,

What controls the three way valve on a kenmore elite refrigerator model 79570433411

That valve is a switching valve that switches the freon one one evaporator to the other. If you're not cooling at all then it's not a switching valve problem. This particular model is actually an LG and I'm pretty sure is has a linear variable speed compressor and they are notorious for going bad and not being able to pump freon properly.

Where is the water filter on a Kenmore Elite; Model: 795 72093 312? and is the part # ADQ36006102

The filter is under a cover on the left side ceiling of the refrigerator. If you look up torard the back you will see it and it just flips down and pulls straight out.( Sometimes you will have to remove the top shelf depending on placement because it will not let the cover come down far enough to remove the filter.)

It does not twist!! Just wiggle and pull out after you have flipped it down.

The Kenmore # is 9690 for this model but it is made by LG so its "equivalent #" should be fine

LG LFX25991ST Linear Compressor Frig has started making a noticeable audible (vibrating?) noise.

There are instances where the compressor can come loose inside its housing. That is not an indication that it is going to totally fail and it has no effect other than the noise. The fan noise would be louder inside the fridge. It would be a squeal.

Kenmore coldspot refrigerator 71192100 not cooling or freezing. Fan is running.

This is a common problem with refrigerators. The first thing that you want to check is the relay and overload on your compressor. I know this blog is about an LG refrigerator but it will be the exact same way on your Kenmore.

Lg Refrigerator compressor comes on for about 5 seconds

What is the width of Kenmore 253.57188600 refrigerator?

Hello Chris;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
First, The 253 model is an LG. Stay away from LG and Samsung refrigerators. 70% of my service calls were for either LG or Samsung. A common problem; LG would have compressor overload failures caused by the compressor. I would have to change both the overload and the compressor. This was a $650 - $900.00 repair. The Samsung has the best looking unit on the market, with the highest component failure rate. Their televisions are great, but appliances!
Ok, your dimensions.
1.) You need to take a tape measure and measure the space. You need 3/4" on the top and sides for proper air flow. You also require 2-1/2" in the back. Take this information to where you purchase a new unit.
2.) Consider going to a Sears Outlet Store (Scratch & Dent). You save a couple hundred dollars and have a one year warrantee.
3.) Consider a Habit Store for a used appliance.
Ok, What brand do I buy:
1.) If you can afford it: Kitchen Aid, Amanda or Hot Point (Fewest service calls).
2.) GE, Kenmore (Model number 110.---).
I hope I have helped;

My fridge and freezer do not seem to be cooling. Lack of air flow possible compressor failure. Looking for any solution I could try at home.

OK I will give you a try and see if I can help. Kenmore is a Sears Brand name as you already know. What happens is Sears call their models something different than the number I or you need to make a parts search. Click Here=> Sears Kenmore model Number Prefix and complete Model Number As you see in the photo about mid page the sample number is 795.78753800 so the prefix is in this case a 795 LG Electronics Refrigerator. Once you locate that number I will want you to unplug refrigerator and pull away from wall. Remove the lower cover over the compressor area to expose compressor, condenser fan and condenser coil. Fill the top of your compressor to see if warm, hot or too hot to keep your hand on top of refrigerators compressor. If too hot to keep hand there leave unplugged until compressor cools enough to open the cover on the terminal box on the side and we need to do some test from there.

Down on this Page Almost at Bottom. Don't worry this is only a windings test so you get an idea of what to look for.I want you to open freezer door and feel to make sure fans are running while compressor runs. I will await your response, Thanks, Sea Breeze
