Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to assist you. First, you will need to purchase a coil brush. You can find them at most Sears's stores or home improvement centers. Once you have the brush unplug the refrigerator and remove the grille from below the doors. The image shows how to remove the grille. Then click here to watch a video on how to clean the coils. After you are done cleaning the coils put the grill back on and plug it back in.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Thank you for using Manage my life.

It's been noted elsewhere that with some of these Kenmore models you can clean only the front of the front-most coils this way. However, compressed air works very well to blast dust off all of the coils. To avoid getting dust all over your house, remove enough screws from the bottom back panel so that you can open it just enough to fit a vacuum hose in it. Seal around the hose by stuffing in plastic bags. Turn on the vacuum and then blast the coils from the front with the compressed air. The air flow from front to back directs most of the dust into the vacuum cleaner.

I just removed dust through the front of my bottom-freezer Kenmore refrigerator by duct-taping an 8 x 5/16-inch plastic drinking straw to the hose of a canister vacuum cleaner and pushing that into coils. A longer straw would have been awesome but this setup did a pretty decent job.
