  1. Home & Family My kenmore elite fridge lights won't shut off and started to melt plastic around the light socket. Several website state that kenmore has extended he warranty for life for this problem. Is this correct?

    Crystal, yes, the warranty for this particular problem has been extended for the life of the unit. You may be told that there will be a charge but when the tech arrives and finds this type of problem …

  3. Home & Family I just purchased a Kenmore Elite refrigerator and the water filter needs replacing but I cannot get it out. I tried turning the water off to lessen the pressure but it still did not pull out. What should I do?

    JudyLou, I'm sorry you are having this problem with the filter. Unfortunately, the model number is not listed and I will only be able to provide some general information. If this is a pull out filter,…

  5. Home & Family I have a craftsman half horsepower garage door opener the remotes are not working the model number is 1395 39 75 SRT 1

    I'm sorry you are having this problem with the remotes. Based on the information listed, this would appear to lead to a defective logic board. First, I would recommend erasing all codes and then try t…
  6. Home & Family Have a craftsman 1/2 hp garage door opener. Universal Clicker will not close the door but it will open it. Help!

    I'm sorry you are still having this problem with the GDO. The model number is not listed but generally ten flashes of the light tells you there is a problem with the door safety sensor circuit. If the…
  7. Home & Family I have two Craftsman 1/2 hp garage door openers (model #139.53677SRT1). Recently one of the remotes quit working and I assumed a dead battery. After changing the battery, I attempted to re-program the remote when it didn't work. The instructions for re-programming didn't work and I ended up resetting the codes altogether by pressing and holding the red SRT (learn) button. Now I can only get one remote to program correctly. I have three remotes and all worked fine at one time, but I cannot duplicate that. I have a keypad entry that will work and a Homelink system in one vehicle that will work, but only ONE remote will work at a time. And it doesn't matter which one...I can program any one of them to work BUT only one will program at a time. I have tried following the written instructions that tell me to press and hold the remote button, then press the learn button to program...but that doesn't work. I have tried pressing (and not holding) the learn button, then pressing (and not holding) the remote button, but that doesn't work either. NOTHING works as it should. At this point, the aluminum bat in my garage seems to be the best alternative to try for a "fix"; however, I would prefer to avoid that step and get my system back to its original status...which is having three separate remotes, the keypad and the Homelink system all working correctly. Any advice?

    I'm sorry you are having this problem with the GDO. Based on the information listed, this would appear to be a defective logic board. The board # 41A5021-3G is available at SearsPartsDirect. The link …
  8. Home & Family I have a 139.53930DM garage door opener purchased and installed in July 2013. One of the two remotes has stopped working. I installed a new battery and I also followed the reprogramming instructions but the remote will not activate the door. I can see by watching the blinking on the motor that the remote is sending a signal. Do I need to buy a new 139.53753 remote or is this part still under warranty? Please help, I need to get this operational and we really need a third remote since we have a detached garage. If I have to buy a remote I might as well buy two of them at once.

    I see you have already replaced the battery. I recommend erasing all of the codes and then try reprogramming. If you have the same problem then the remote is probably bad. You may need to purchase a n…
  9. Home & Family I have a Kenmore Model# 795.72034.111 refrigerator and the ice maker stopped working. I changed the water filter yesterday thinking that may be the problem. I have since noticed the ice tray is upside down in the dispensing position and will not reset. Any thoughts or recomendations?

    Hello Fran_O, I will assist you this morning since Fred is not here yet. I'm sorry the icemaker did not respond to the test. Unfortunately, this style of icemaker does not have a fill key (button) to …

    This would be very unusual for the dispenser reservoir to freeze because it's located inside the refrigerator door. This area is secluded with no air flow and would be very difficult to freeze. If the…
