Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
I smelled plastic burning and when I took off the cover( it was very hot), I knew the lights had been staying on for some time. Also the doors have thin buttons on the top , inside area that when I pushed them, the lights stayed on. The cover to inside light fixture- two of the tabs are slightly melted. This fridge is less than 2 years old
All refrigerators have light switches, that depress and shut off the lights when the doors are closed.
First, make sure the bulbs are left out. I would replace all of the light switches because of the newness of the machine.
They are easy enough to replace, and you can purchase them at any appliance parts house or a Sears service facility.
They pry out, and may be destroyed on removal. Unplug the machine.
After connecting the wires, the new ones just push in.
To test, close the doors slowly. The lights should go out just before the door closes.
Some states have what is called "Implied warranty of serviceablity". Which means what should a consumer reasonably expect irregardless of the warranty limits.
You might want to contact Sears and express your opinions regarding this matter, and if they'll consider making you whole.
The above paragraph are my thoughts only. They in no way reflect the law, Sears policy or liability or this site's policy.
