However, there are also some common issues that homeowners have with their Kenmore Elite Refrigerator editions that can lead to inconvenient situations and even expensive repairs. The purpose of this article is to provide a comprehensive guide on how to identify these common issues so that you can be able to solve them quickly and effectively. Let’s check out some of the common problems and their possible solutions.
The reason for this is that the control board cannot send a signal to the icing fan motor for more than 114 seconds. If you do not see the code on the display, please check the fan that is inside the freezer at the back of the freezer. The fan’s main job is to blow air toward the ice maker.
Unplugging the refrigerator and plugging it back in after about 5 minutes can sometimes clear the error. When the problem returns, it means that the fan is not running properly. Some people say that this is caused by ice that builds up, blocking the rotation. In this case, defrosting your fridge is the best way to get rid of all the ice. Unplug the fridge for a day or two and allow all the ice to melt.
The problem that this error code reports is a problem with the defrost heater. Also, don’t be rushed to buy a new heater, because this may also be a control board issue. If it is, go to the heater and defrost it. Unplug your refrigerator and take out all the bins and baskets from it. Then remove the front freezer panel. You can do this by using a flat-head screwdriver. Check the heating elements in the defrost heater and evaporator coils. Take the heater out very carefully. Do not use any force to strike the coils. Install a new heater and run the refrigerator.
This error code is called ‘communication error’. It is due to a communication failure between the main control board (on the back panel) and the display control board (on the freezer door). It is usually due to poor wiring and/or loose connections. So, remove the cover, and check the main control board, the CON6 connector, and the pin that is plugged into it. If there is no problem with the wiring, look at the wire harness on the upper part of the left-hand door of your fridge. If there are no problems, you should check the dispenser and the wire harness connection.
