Question and Answers

Q:

Two fuses needed in the PCB main; Can they be purchased separately? 79558819901 Kenmore Refrigerator

A:

After looking throughout the website; I notice that this issue happens a lot. However, I found the following conversation: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Repair-Maintenance/Questions-Answers/refrig-model--79558819900-stopped-runnin/Model-79558819900/0582/0165000/279805?modelNumber=79558819900 It's kinda sad that: Jimmy K (The Expert), stated on December 17, 2011: Jacob, I am glad you found and replaced the fuse. The fuse is not in any of our technical information. Good luck. HOW CAN THE FUSE NOT BE ON THE TECHNICAL INFORMATION? Now on another conversation for a Kenmore model# 795.58813.900 (I believe) the fuses are soldered. Which means that the fuses cannot be replaced. The expert knew that information for that model. This website needs to be better managed to get information. I've been on this site now almost 3 hours. I don't know if the Parts Department has the fuses I need for my model but my model is NOT even listed for a manual.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the fuse on the control board. This is a standard buss fuse that can be purchased at any local hardware store. It must have the same rating. Now, some of these boards will have the fuse soldered in place and will not be replaceable and others will be clipped in place and can be replaced. Unfortunately the manufacturer does not give this information. The only way to determine this will be to actually see the board and if the fuse is clipped in place or soldered in place. If the fuse can be replaced and if it blows again, the control board will then need to be replaced. I hope this will help you.

Thank you for your question. I know it can be disappointing when the icemaker stops working. If there is ice in the tray but it's not being harvested, it could be caused by the icemaker itself, the control board or the temperature in the freezer is not cold enough (below 12 degrees), to cycle the icemaker. A good check will be to manually start this icemaker into a cycle. To cycle this icemaker, press the test button under the module (see picture). If it cycles and fills ok now and if the temperature is ok, it would lead to a defective icemaker. If it won't cycle, some voltage checks will need to be made, to determine, if the icemaker or the board has failed. I hope this will help you.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

A:

The answer pvalde2 sent has good information related to your problem.

The refrigerator does not have a fuse or capacitor that will cause the symptoms you have. The power goes into the main control board that is mounted on the rear of the cabinet and is sent to the lights and controls from there.

Try disconnecting power to the refrigerator and reconnecting. If this doesn't solve the problem the main control board will probably have to be replaced.

I recommend you go to Home Services and get a Sears technician to repair the refrigerator.
