Question and Answers

Q:

How can I reset the filter light on my Kenmore Elite refrigerator model number 596.77599801 if it does not turn on at all?

A:

If your refrigerator does not have a water filter status light, you should change the water filter every 6 months depending on your usage. If the water flow to the dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed, replace the water filter more often.

If your refrigerator has the status light indicator but is not lit. I would suggest unplugging the refrigerator to reset the control board. If this does not fix the problem I will strongly suggest calling us at 1-803-6775 to have a technician diagnose and repair your refrigerator.

There is NO LOCK button on my 597.77599801 Any suggestions? The red warning light comes on after one year, but the greed okay light only worked until the first filter replacement, then it disappeared forever! Tried holding it down for all sorts of time, but everything failed. This is a petty annoyance, but why install a green light if it will not work? I see that other Sears customers have had the same problem.

Where is the screw? It is not apparent when looking at the front of the light shield.

Thanks for the response. 

Page 15 of the owners manual will walk you through the steps and shows the visual of the screw. If you don't have the manual, I have provided a link below that you may click on to view the instructions on page 15.

No screw is apparent. Let's start over. Model 596.77599801 SN KY 2531920. Hopefully this additional information will assist you with my question. Once again, NO screw is apparent. The Owners Manual you reference above is not the correct manual for my unit. My Use & Care Guide reflects this number in the lower left corner of the cover: W10218526A. No mention is made of removing a screw in the Changing the refrigerator Light Bulb instructions found on page 16 of the Use & Care Guide provided with the refrigerator which was delivered on 7/24/2009. I am a rather "handy" guy and please believe that if I could see a screw, I would certainly remove it!!! HELP!!!!

Thanks for the response. With the updated model number, you are right, there is not a screw involved.
Essentially, you would do the same steps as before minus the involvement of the screw.

  1. Slide the light shield toward the back of the compartment to release it from the light assembly.
  2. Replace bulb.
  3. Replace the light shield by inserting the tabs on the shield into the liner holes on each side of the light assembly. Slide the shield toward the front until it locks in place.

It's recommended to unplug the unit before replacing the bulb and plug it back in when complete.

Hope this clarifies it for you and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
