How do I get a stuck light bulb out of the refrigerator?

Simple, use a hair dryer (on high heat) on the base of the bulb for a few seconds. The bulb will come out easy. Cold expands and is what made it stick. This has worked every time for me.

How do I defrost bottom freezer on my Kenmore French door bottom freezer

A note about your problem: If your freezer is sealing itself properly you should not have a frost problem. Most models self-defrost the small amount that builds up when you open it. I would check for door-drawer gasket leaks... I recently posted a fix for this and will repeat it here for you. We recently purchased a new Kenmore French Door (side by side upper doors and bottom drawer freezer) and have had nothing but problems keeping frost-ice and dripping water (condensation on the ice maker) under control in both the top as well as the freezer section. Also, If I put a bright flashlight inside the fridge, closed the doors in a dark room, I could actually see light escaping from the doors and the freezer in several places. (use a mirror in difficult places.) Warranty service on the unit has not helped with the technician using a heat gun to reform the gaskets in several places. They also replaced the metal slide rails in the freezer which helped a bit but did not solve the whole problem. I was also told that new gaskets come folded so much that we would be worse off than the ones currently in our fridge. I searched the web for a solution and some even suggested adding (YUCK) petroleum jelly to the gasket. I would only try that as a last resort. My successful fix was to add HEAVY DUTY magnetic tape to the metal fridge surface where the door seal tries to seat. This is not your typical box-store tape so don't think they are all created equal. Part of the reason why this works is that most door gaskets have a magnetic strip inside them. My problem solution works well because the gasket and the tape strips attract each other and the magnetic tape also adds a bit more thickness to the fridge side of the equation. Source for the magnetic tape: Amazon... just search for... Master Magnetics - B005HYDC68 Roll-N-Cut Flexible Magnetic Tape Refill - 1/16" Thick x 1/2" Wide x 15 feet. (1 roll), 07518. With the tape installed, our frost-ice buildups and water drips (around the upper ice maker section) as well as all the light leaks have been eliminated. best of luck.

What is my operating psi suppose to be on my low side?

On an R134a system the low side should be down around 0-2 PSI when the freezer is down close to zero. Running slightly in a vacuum is ok at zero degrees.

What causes a refrigerator compressor to run too slowly?

Wear and lack of lubrication. You need a new one. There are some interesting videos on YouTube showing how badly made refrigerator compressors are and they are totally sealed because they are full of gas and oil..

Ge Gsh25jsxnss side x side fridge is not getting cold, took plate off & damper works fine, I don't see ne kind of fan, it goes straight 2 the freezer near the ice maker. freezer is cold & working fine

Evaporator fan motor has probably failed. p/n WR60X10185 It is located in the freezer section, behind the back panels inside, and under the icemaker. Remove the screws on the bottom panel in the freezer, remove the ice maker, auger motor, and panel. is is about center of the freezer.

Fridge smells like smoke when I open it?

If that unit is combo freezer then it has a defrost heater and that heater is what you are smelling. The heater is a coil in the evaporator coils on the freezer side. You might want to inspect it to see if there is any damage to the fixture that holds it.

Water filter stuck on my Kenmore Fridge

I had the same problem. I coudn't get the knob to turn. I ended up taking the front grill off so I could get a better grip on the knob. Once I did that I still have to put a lot of pressure on the knob to turn it but that did the trick. When I got it turned a quarter turn then it was easy to pull the filter out. Hope this helps!

Why is ice building up on the copper pipe from the gas bottle and top shelf in the freezer where the fan is is not freezing

The 'gas bottle' is probably the gas dryer. You can stop the ice build up be insulating it with foam wrap.
