Question and Answers

Q:

Water dispenser stopped working 79578543800 Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dispenser is not working properly.. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information that will assist you. I recommend testing the water valve.

1. Check the temperature of the freezer becasue if it is fewer than 17 degrees F it wont make ice. 
2.Check if your water fill spout is plugged with ice, if it is then it wont make ice.
3. Check to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve. 
4.Use an OHM meter to check the continuity of the water inlet valve. If it does not have any continuity then you need to replace your water valve. If it does then the icemaker itself is the problem and may need to be replaced.

I have attached the image to assist in removing the front cover on your dispenser. Let me know if this helps.

According to our information if a door is left open or ajar, the alarm will sound until the door is closed. There is no adjustment on this. This is a feature that is made into the electronic control board and you can't over ride or change it.

I am not an expert but I think your answers are incorrect. ON the far left side of the dispenser display there is a touch pad "button" that reads Alarm/Lock. When you tap the button you can turn the alarm on or off. If you hold the button down for 3 seconds you can lock the dispenser control or, hold it down to unlock the dispenser display.

Q:

Is there an adjustment for the bottom freezer door on the Kenmore Elite?

A:

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the freezer door. There is really no door adjustment. If it's not closing good on the left side, first check for an obstruction inside the freezer that could be causing this problem. Now, it is possible the gear on the left side may be out of adjustment that could be causing this. To adjust the roller gears pull the drawer out all the way and then close it completely. This should line the gears back up. If it still won't close properly, the most likely problem will be with the rail. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will assist you further.
