Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Elite Mode;# 79577542600 water leak bottom of Freezer

A:

Check to see if the roof of that freezer compartment is sagging down. You could have a problem with moisture building up in that area and then leaking down into the freezer. If that top liner is sagging, I recommend that you have a Sears Service technician examine and repair the refrigerator. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you suspect that you have a clogged defrost drain tube that is causing this problem, then you can pull out the freezer drawer and then remove the cover in front of the evaporator (the interior back wall of the freezer compartment). Be sure that you unplug the refrigerator before accessing internal components. That is a fairly difficult task. If you need help with that procedure, reply to this thread and we will assist you further.

If that defrost drain tube is frozen, then you may be able to defrost it and then clear the clog. Pour some hot water down the drain to clear out a clog. That may help you fix this problem.

If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will try to help you further.

Q:

Light bulbs melted the light housing, is this covered under a recall? 79577542600 Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

A:

According to your model number and serial number, that refrigerator should be covered for the repair of the lighting system. Call Sears at 1-800-4MY-HOME and schedule service. To schedule service, you will need to agree to a service trip charge during that phone call. Based on your model and serial number, you should not be charged anything for this service call once the technician visits your home and verifies the model and serial number of your refrigerator and sees the failure that you are describing.

Q:

Kenmore Elite 795.77542600 Water Filter Cover Removal 79577542600 Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There are four tabs on the filter cover, two in the front and two in the back. The two front tabs on the cover slide in and out of two rails, one on each side. You must slide the cover assembly out enough to clear the two rails before the cover can be pulled down and off. It is very difficult to slide the cover far enough to disengage the two tabs. It helps to use the filter by-pass after removing the filter to assist in pulling the filter connector down while pulling the cover forwards. Be careful to not break the cover. The cover is cost approximately $45.00. When re-installing the filter cover, align the the two front tabs in the two slide channels and then push the cover back in place. Push the back of the cover up to lock the rear tabs in place and reinstall the screw.
