Question and Answers

Q:

Turning off 10646023801 Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Refrigerator, Model: 106.46023801. From reviewing the details on your model, I have provided an insert from the owner’s manual which explains how to turn off the refrigerator. Other than what’s on the manuals there is no other way other that cutting off the power straight from the breaker.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the refrigerator to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Specifically, the ice bin was not returned to its position on the door correctly. This resulted in water draining into the auger motor compartment. When the ice dispenser was used, the household circuit would trip. Contrary to the Owner Manual warning I used an extension cord to connect to an outlet on a different circuit. The result was not good. The PC Board was fried. After replacing the board (W10209635) and the auger motor (2326873), the refrigerator and freezer work nicely. This icemaker seems different than other Kenmore models. Is there anything else that I should check prior to using the Ice Dispenser again? I drilled small holes in the auger motor compartment door to mimick the manufactured design of a subsequent model.

Hi Joseph thanks for the reply. I would not think that any damage would be caused to the ice maker itself. Just be certain that there is no residual water in the auger motor or the wiring harnesses in the door. If the ice maker does not produce ice after reaching and maintaining sub temperatures for 48 hours let me know and I will be happy to provide more assistance. Good luck. Ron H.

Q:

SpaceSave Ice Caddy won't come off after defrosting 10646023801 Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

A:

Good afternoon.... I can understand your confusion over what is going on. I wonder if there is a form of suction that is not allowing that caddie to release. I will forward your question to an expert who will investigate the matter further and get back to you. You will hear from them within two business days if not sooner. Until you hear from us, have a nice day.

This does not seem to be a question of suction - it seems to be some sort of jamming up of the release mechanism. I can press the blue button and there is a click, the caddy is somewhat looser and can get jiggled, but it will not come off. Also, by keeping the door open sensor pressed - I am able to actually see the auger and blades turning - and can try to lift the caddy off while in motion - but that does not work either. there is definitely no ice or water in the caddy at this time and nothing stuck in the chute. Looking forward to assistance - thanks

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the ice bucket. Because of the location of the bucket, every time the door is open, the bucket is outside of the freezer, so it's subject to moisture, which can cause it to freeze and stick to the door. A hair dryer can be used to help free it but be very careful not to get it too hot. Also placing a hot towel around the bucket would help. If you would prefer, you can also just leave the freezer door open for awhile. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thanks Scott. This is not a question of the mechanism being frozen, it was already at room temp after being defrosted. The Blue button will move in and there is a click and the bucket will be able to move a bit more, but you just can't lift it free of the door. Please let me know if you need any photos or need me to try anything else. Thanks for the continuing assistance.

Nick, I'm sorry for the confusion but I am referring to the bucket, not the mechanism inside the bucket. The moisture can accumulate under the bucket and freeze it to the door panel. Applying the heat suggested above will help free the bucket but be careful, if using a hair dryer, not to get the panel or bucket too hot. I hope this will help you.

Okay.... Apparently my comments don't fit the accepted mold for Sears. I am tired of typing and retyping my problem on this Q&A board. I have had the same problem with my ice maker for over a year. I am past frustrated right now. It is bad enough that the ice maker freezes up; it's worse that I can't remove the ice bin to defrost?? Wow, before I bought this house with all Sears appliances, I hadn't defrosted a refrigerator in the last 40 years!

Scott D., He already told you the fridge was at room temperature. Please go back to your script and search for the part that says this ice maker has a DESIGN PROBLEM and stop telling him to use a hair dryer or a warm towel. This is 2013! This should not be happening... DEFROSTING?? C'mon Sears! I've used your appliances for 45 years, by choice, and have ALWAYS been a happy, satisfied customer. Not sure now.

Scott - please watch this video posted n YouTube that shows me trying to remove the caddy after having used a blow dryer on it. While I am using one hand in the video (I had to hold the camera) I get the exact same results using two hands. The video is here youtu.be/JX5bD2A6YfY

I have gone to the trouble of shooting video to illustrate the problem, it would be great if someone would have a look and let me know what the solution is - or just let me know that I should call a repair person. Thanks.
