Question and Answers

Q:

ice build up 79578094900 Kenmore Refrigerator

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore refrigerator.

From the information you have provided above, I can understand the frustration of having your refrigerator malfunction, after researching model number 795.78094900. The problem with the ice forming in the freezer is likely caused by a frozen or clogged evaporator defrost drain. To check for this, you would need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel inside the freezer section. This process involves removing the ice maker module, removing the air tower and then taking of the back panel in the freezer that covers the evaporator. You may need to thaw and remove more ice from the freezer floor before you can remove this panel. Once you take this panel off, you will likely see an ice slab in the drain pan below the evaporator. If you thaw this ice, you will see a drain hose with a tube attached that drains defrost condensate down to a drain pan at the very bottom of the unit by the compressor and condenser. Pouring hot water down this tube may help defrost a frozen drain tube. If the tube is clogged, it will need to be cleared in order to prevent the ice from reforming on the floor of the freezer

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.

*Safety disclaimer before you try and repair the unit make sure the power supply is disconnected. There may be sharp parts to the unit that can cause injury to you if not careful.

The ice is on the back wall of the freezer not the floor of the freezer. If the drain tube was frozen would water be leaking out of the freezer on to the kitchen floor?

Q:

door closer doesn't close 79578094900 Kenmore Refrigerator

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your fridge and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 79578094900 and from your description it seems like the door stopper and or the bushing item 243A and 286A. Before removing the door take a look at the way the door closes at the middle hinge and look for any movement or hesistation when trying to close the door. You will need to remove the door from the cabinet. The hinge has 3 screws at the top and once they are removed the door is removeable. Be sure to place a blanket to set the door down. I hope this information helps you with your troubleshooting and I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.

Found the solution. Before I started the job of removing the door to work on the hinges, I decided to try an old trick. I squirted some WD-40 on the hinges, opened and closed the door a dozen times and now it closes by itself, just like new! (No one paid me to say this.)
