Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My bottom freezer rather new kenmore knocks a lot. Really loud. What is causing this and What should I do


Answers :

Could be a couple of things, but it's most likely related to the refrigerant system. With the unit running, take the toe grill off the bottom front of the freezer. You should be able to see the condenser, which is a flat rectangular object made of black steel tubing. Try moving the condenser (gently) up or down and see if that makes any difference in the noise.level. If it does, take a piece of folded up cardboard and wedge it between the condenser and the floor...that should make things quieter.

\015\012If that dosen't work, your problem could be the compressor, which iis a lot more serious. Compressors aren't DIY friendly. and I'd advise against going any further.
\015\012
\015\012If the unit is less than a year old, it should be under warranty. Check your owners manual for details.

Our Kenmore Elite (new last summer) bottom freezer double top doors, stopped making ice. The wire that seemingly controls the ice maker is hanging down in a way that is causing difficulty opening the bottom freezer drawer.


Well, that wire is likely the cause of your issue, somebody probably bent it, and now it gets caught on the door or a basket or a food item or what have you, and since it cannot move, the ice maker will not make ice. ...

Our Kenmore side by side refrigerator(#106 5682 603) has developed an occasional knocking sound - fairly loud. I obtained a new water filter from "filtersfast.com" and have recently changed this filter which is located below the freezer door. Suspecting that this filter may be causing the knocking, I removed and reinstalled the filter, but knocking continues. Any ideas?


If it sounds like it may be coming from the back of the freezer, it is the refrigerant "popping" as in feeds into the evaporator. Some models have this issue and there is a "fix" for it. (yours may not be this one though). Although the sound is ann ... Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

4 yr old kenmore frig/freezer (on top) gasket doesn't stay sealed, allowing air to get into freezer and crystals to form on food and walls of freezer. when frig door closes, the air ''puffs up'' into the freezer gasket and causes it to slightly separate from the freezer, allowing air in.

We own a Kenmore Elite fridge with bottom freezer (model 795.75196400 from 2004). The freezer stopped working over the weekend. It has not always kept the appropriate temperature in the past as the ice in the back would sometimes melt a bit creating a block of ice rather than cubes. That was happening for the past two years. This is the first time the freezer stopped working completely. What can I check or replace?


If you have not done the obvious yet, do so. First,unplug the fridge, let it thaw well.Remove the cover to expose the compressor. I bet the darn thing is completely covered with dust and lint.

Kenmore bottom freezer 795.77304600. Heat from the light bulbs heated the reflector plate and subsequently melted the plastic mounting socket on the control panel cover.
