Question and Answers

Q:

refrigerator laid down during transit. left upright for 24 hrs without plugging in and told to plug in for 3 min unplug for 10 (5-6 times) correct info?

A:

The refrigerator should be left upright for 24 hours after being laid down for transit. After 24 hours you can plug the refrigerator in and leave it turned on.

When a refrigerator is laid down for transit, some of the oil will run out of the compressor into the evaporator and suction line. Twenty four hours is adequate time for the oil to run back into the compressor.

Q:

Kenmore elite dryer not starting

A:

Hi Jim,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

You did not mention any beeping. Typically when these dryers will not start and you get 3 beeps when start is pressed it is because the door switch is bad. I am including the diagnostics for the door switch and thermistor in the images below. Check the door switch, thermistor, and see if the dryer will declare an error code.

You did not mention which circuit board you replaced I assume it was the main control (part number 8557308). Other possibilities;

  • 1 Console
  • 2 Wiring harness


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 .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or to purchase any parts needed; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance, include more details in a reply to this post.

Jim,

Did you ohm your thermistor? I am including the entire tech sheet for this dryer in the images below. Perform test # 3a the Thermistor Test (PAGE 6) and test # 2 Motor Circuit Test (PAGE 5). The motor test will show you how to ohm the motor.

Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.
