Thanks! I guess I should call them..but what is the problem with this unit's interior lights? Sometimes they come on now and sometimes not. I took apart the connectors at the door hinges just to free up possible corrosion but that did nothing....

Dan - I do not know what the actual problem is. I understand that the later models have LED lights which do not get hot. However I have also come across a couple of posts where the posters' state that the LED lights are staying on.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the lights. There is a relay on the main control board housed on the back panel of the refrigerator that controls the lights along with the door switch. The main board # 6871JB1423N and a new light socket harness assembly # 6621JK2003B will need to be installed. NOTE: There is a known issue with this model of Kenmore Elite refrigerator regarding the refrigerator lights staying on. The manufacturer warranty has been extended for the life of the refrigerator to cover this type of failure. The repair should be covered along with any damage that occurred to the light reflector and cover. I recommend that you call Sears at 1-800-469-4663 (1-800-4MY-HOME) to schedule a Sears Technician to fix this problem. You will likely need to agree to a service charge for the repair to be set up in the system. Once the technician visits your home and verifies that the failure is caused by this known issue, the parts and labor should be covered. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

this fridge has regular incadescent bulbs..would you think it would be covered by the class action? The Fridge is probably about 5 years old. I am pretty handy and can replace the parts myself, but I rather not replace the electronics w/o some troubleshooting on my part if I can even do it!

Dan, this model is listed on the flash for the light problem. Now, I strongly recommend having a technician make this repair under warranty. A technician has to make the repair for the warranty to be in effect.

I just called Sears and as you all have stated my fridge is under a recall notice.. I never received such notice.. They told me at first that I would be sent a repair kit and upon getting the kit to call them back to schedule a service appointment..seems kind of a protracted method to solve this problem..

Dan - Technically it is not a recall, 'they' are just repairing those that fail.

Thank you for your question. The normal water supply line will be 1/4". However, sometimes the installer may use 3/8" or 5/16" tubing. If it has a screw type connection, it will be a compression fitting. I would recommend taking the connection being used to a local hardware store to try and match it for the correct size of the tubing being used. I�m attaching information for some various fittings.

  1. 5/16"x 5/16" fitting # 2300868
  2. 1/4"x 5/16" fitting # 4318044
  3. 1/4"x 1/4" fitting # W10277958
I hope this will help you.

Replacing some parts can be a challenge. The part number listed is the cover for the crisper. There is not an assembly kit. This part is called the tv tray and is # 154 in the picture. I hope this helps you.
