Here our technicians have compiled a list of common Kenmore problems and their associated solutions. If this does not cover your needs, please do give us a call.
Problem #1: Owners of the latest bottom freezer models have commonly reported that they see the error message ‘FF’ on their displays, and even after unplugging and connecting the fridge again, the message does not go away.
Solution: If you are experiencing similar trouble, the problem is with your freezer fan (ff). This is the first component you should check. The freezer fan is placed behind the back wall of your freezer compartment. Check if it is running. If not, the problem could either be with the fan or the rear board of your freezer. When the rear board malfunctions, your freezer does not defrost, and the buildup of ice prevents the fan from turning. Leave the fridge disconnected for about 24 hours. This will melt the ice. Now check if the fan works. If it does, you need to replace your rear board or get it repaired. Otherwise, the problem is with the fan itself.
Problem #2: Some users have reported that their fridge and freezer stopped working all of a sudden, but there was a constant clicking sound from the compressor every 10 seconds or so, as though it was trying to start. After a few clicks, it would shut down. The compressor would also heat up abnormally.
Solution: If this problem sounds familiar, it means that the hard start relay in your compressor (the component that starts it) is damaged and it needs to be replaced. You could try doing it yourself with the help of a diagram, but if you are not confident, you could get a professional Kenmore refrigerator repair service to help with this problem.
Problem #3: One of the most common problems that has been reported to us by people who own a top-freezer Kenmore refrigerator is the collection of water underneath the vegetable drawers at the bottom. People interpret this as an unusual dripping problem.
Solution: The dripping is not the source of the problem. Rather, the problem is with the drainage from your freezer. The defrost water is collecting at the bottom of your fridge, because the drain in your freezer is clogged with ice. The drain is located underneath the evaporator coils, at the bottom of the back panel of your freezer. To unclog it, run hot water in it, or try using a hairdryer. This should solve the problem.
Problem #4: Some people with older Kenmore refrigerators (around 10 years old or more) commonly report that their freezer and fridge are not cooling efficiently anymore. The problem persists even after the coils have been vacuumed, and in spite of the fact that the compressor and fan are both working.
Solution: If you are experiencing something on these lines, chances are that there is a leak in the sealed system of your refrigerator. Unfortunately, opening the sealed system is a professional job and must only be attempted by a technician. Give us a call, and we will tell you what is the best that can be done.
These are only a few possible problems that could be affecting your refrigerator. If you are being bothered by something unusual, or simply want to get your refrigerating unit serviced, remember that our technicians have the competence you require. So, for any kind of Kenmore refrigerator repair in San Diego.
