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

4 Answers

My Kenmore Elite freezer door came off one of its hinges. I cannot figure out how to put it back on so that it stays. The connection has an upper hook with a lower hinged arm. It is strange.

I just spent the better part of an hour on this. There is a white flange with two phillips screws. If you take this off it is easier to see the mechanism, but you may be able to get it back on without removing the flange. I removed the flange. The mechanism attached to the door has a hook facing up and a smaller hook facing down. There is a hinged metal bar below this. The bar has a hinged piece with a loop on it. Pull the loop up. Now push down on the piece with the hooks ( it has a spring) and hook the smaller hook on the loop. Do this for both sides. Now the door should slide easily into the slots. Once in the slots, push down on the hook piece and release the loop. Push the loop back in place along the bar. Hopefully this does the trick for you, it did for me.

    Thanks for the info. Like you, I spent a good part of an hour trying to figure it out all the while watching my items in my freezer defrost. Until I came across your post. Your description of what to do was spot on and I fixed the problem in a matter of seconds! Thanks again!

heres a video showing how the two metal pieces hook together. It's hard. You really have to put out and almost use two hands.

This takes some acrobatics with the spring loaded hook. First, on The smaller hook, push the locking clip flush with the hook. Then draw both hooks together before you insert into the door. I dismounted my door from the track so that I could manipulate the spring loaded hook out from the door, while guiding the smaller clip in underneath - when you get the right angle, it will slip into the slot below the slot the larger hook goes into above. This may look impossible until you push the spring loaded hook down and pull the top out a bit. Watch your fingers. Once it seats, then you can pull the hinge fully open, push back the plastic molding, and open the little locking piece, which had to be closed flush with the hook when you started. This thing is ridiculous, but it can be fixed. I’m sure it can be done with the door mounted, but I’d rather not torque on all that plastic and slide rails. Just two screws allows you to dismount the door frame from the track. Do it.

It is strange that the door came off. If it did not brake.. laying the refrigerator on it's side,or getting a friend to help hold the weight while you secure it should work.

On my Kenmore Elite Bottom Freezer Refrigerator, the display on the left door reads ErCo and the ice maker does not work . Its less than 2 years old

The Er Co error code signifies a communication error between the display control board on the freezer door and the main power board on the outer back panel of the refrigerator.

Check the wiring and connections between the low voltage interface and the main high voltage board.

If you are able to unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover over the control board on the back of the refrigerator,
you can check the wiring connection on the main control board.

If this wiring connection is okay, check the wire harness connection under the hinge cover on the top of the left hand refrigerator door.
If these connections are okay, then you will need access the wire harness connection in the dispenser.

Sears trio elite ...french doors with bottom freezer...right side loose on freezer door handle...thanks

I have the same refrig. After taking the freezer basket hinges off, thinking I had to take the whole door a part to access the screws for the handle...my husband figured that the handle probably slides off...and yes that is just what it does!
Push the handle in a bit and then slide to the right. It takes a little bit of effort but that handle will come right off. Then you can tighten the screw that holds the clip in place. Then you line the handle back up to the clips, and slide to the left. Good Luck!

Freezer Door Fell Off

Generally, door hinges have a post on the door part and a hole in the box part.  
In fairness to Sears, you caused the problem.  Ice is caused by failure to keep the door closed, open containers with damp product inside and the like.  Forcing the doors will cause them the distort and that's what you did.
You may have to pay a visit to Sears and look at a floor model to see what it looks like.  Take a camera.

Elite trio

Hello bigmikeegator
Welcome!

You said, you have the Kenmore Elite Trio Bottom Freezer. You moved your refrigerator to a new home and removed the bottom freezer door, but can not seem to figure out exactly how to put it back on correctly.


It's too much for me to tell you myself.
This is easier!
Page 9 shows you how to remove and reinstall doors.
