    Hello folks, I am trying to diagnose the problem of my refrigerator. So: it barely makes cold even lever inside set on highest (level 5), freezer , however, works perfectly. Last year we called "the technician". His assessment was that either rubber door seal worn out, or maybe we just forgot...

    Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a loud buzz/hum coming from the bottom of our kenmore elite refrigerator 596.76259701. I’m not adept enough to diagnose it, but I’m happy to try a simple fix. I’m also happy to pay someone to fix it because I think it may have been put in before the doors...

    Hello everyone! I've been given a Kenmore radiator heater that plugs into the wall. It wasn't used for quite some time before it was given to me. Whenever I turn it on, there's a noticeable smell that isn't really good or bad, just an odor. It also get a sort of headache/wooziness, but it's...

    Hi everyone, I have a Kenmore powermiser 80 home furnace that has recently developed a problem-- when I turn on the thermostat it clicks and tries to move instead of spinning. It used to happen occasionally but now it's every time. I thought it was the motor that was at fault, so I replaced...

    I am trying to use a Kenmore Elite (model 796.29002000) washer motor for another application where I need the motor to just run in spin mode. I'm planning to remove all of the electronics and hard wire directly to the motor. There appears to be two electrical connectors to the motor. One has a...

    Gas Stove Kenmore Elite 75343 Merely plugging in the range trips the GFCI receptacle (causes to pop out the "Reset" button). Plugged it into a different circuit, trips that circuit (receptacle reset button pops out) instantly as well. What is going on? Any help would be appreciated!

    All, I have a Kenmore clothes washer, model 110.92284100. You can see a diagram of it at http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/11092284100/0582/0153200.html. I have two problems, with the first probably causing the second. The first problem is that virtually all loads spin as if they...

    Our six year old Kenmore model 110.29522800 washer fills but will not start. It just buzzes for a few seconds and stops then repeats. If I move the dial manually to the next function it still just buzzes. So far I have replaced the lid switch, direct drive coupling, and capacitor. I also...

    I woke up this morning and found a large pool of water in front of the fridge. Cleaned it up thinking someone must've left the freezer door open overnight. More water came later and fridge and freezer are not cooling. Temp gauge says 50 in the freezer. Any help, much appreciated. The model is a...

    I have an Kenmore water softener that's at least 8 years old. It's been working fine until a couple of weeks ago. Water was hard and I noticed that the brine tank was half full of water. I found some instructions and videos on cleaning the softener, specifically the venturi as well as other...

    I have a stacked Kenmore w/d combo Model #41793812200. It fills up with water and agitates just fine, but when it is time to spin down, that's when the problems begin. The pump pulls out the water, but the tub does not spin. What's more, I have heard a high-pitched whining during this part...
