Question and Answers

Q:

Why is the center column between the freezer and refrigerator hot on my Kenmore upright?

A:

Your refrigerator has a refrigeration line attached to the back of the strip that runs between the refrigerator and freezer. Warm refrigerant passes through this line and heats the strip to keep it from sweating. This process was done several years ago to eliminate the mullion heater they used to put there and make the refrigerator more energy efficient.

When this strip heats too much it is because there is not enough air passing through the condenser coil underneath the refrigerator. The condenser fan can be accessed by unplugging the refrigerator and removing the cover across the lower rear of the refrigerator.

The condenser coil might need cleaning from the rear, or the condenser fan might not be running.

Q:

Why won't my ice maker produce ice after I replaced the emitter and receiver boards (4389102) per your instructions?

A:

The red flashing light is a diagnostic function that indicates that the receiver board is working and does not detect a beam from the emitter board. If you push in on the flapper door on the left side, the red LED should turn solid. This will indicate that the boards are working correctly. Now that you have the boards working, you can troubleshoot the ice maker module. The receiver control board sends the 120 volts AC power to the ice maker module for operation. Since it was not working, this is the first issue that needed to be corrected. I provided technical information on this ice maker system in the images below. Now that the emitter and receiver boards are working properly, you can manually cycle the ice maker module using the procedure in the first image below. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully to avoid injury and damage to the ice maker module. Use a properly insulated jumper wire and remove it before the blades reach the 10 o'clock position. Leaving the jumper wire in for too long can damage the module due to constant heater operation. Do not perform this test unless you are completely confident that you can safely complete it.

This should help you diagnose your ice maker problem. If the ice maker cycles but does not fill, you could have a frozen fill tube or a clogged water filter. The filter housing has an automatic bypass that allows water to flow normally when the filter is removed. If the dispenser has weak water pressure, pull the filter out and see if water pressure improves. This may help you resolve a water problem if needed.

Q:

Where can I find instructions for replacing the PC board in my Kenmore refrigerator?

A:

If you are trying to replace the PC board in the freezer on the right side, the part number that you provided is the wrong PC board. The part number 2203385 is for the PC board that is in the control on the refrigerator side. It is Key 31 in the first image below. To replace this board, you would need to unplug the refrigerator and drop down the control housing. The control housing is secured by screws that go up through the bottom of the housing. After removing these screws, the housing will drop down so that you can replace this PC board.

The control board would not affect the ice maker. The ice maker is controlled by a set of control boards on the walls of the freezer called the receiver and emitter boards. The part number for the kit that replaces both the emitter and receiver control boards is 4389102. The procedure for changing these boards is shown in the second image below. Be sure to unplug the refrigerator before accessing these control boards.
