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....

A:

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.

Q:

Ice maker not filling properly

A:

Ice makers seem simple but can be complicated. A suggestion I have to help the expert provide a better answer is to add the model number of the refrigerator to this thread. Each model is a little different.

Thank you for your question. I'm not sure exactly what funnel you are referring to. The holder you have listed is, for the icemaker. It holds the icemaker in place. I suspect you may be referring to the fill cup on the icemaker. If this is the case, it's not repairable. The complete icemaker # 5989JA0002Q will need to be replaced. For more assistance, if you could send a picture of the part in question, it would help in determining what the fix will be. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

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 .
