Thread: Kenmore Coldspot Microcomputer

    Default Kenmore Coldspot Microcomputer

    Model Number: 106.54682300
    Brand: Sears Kenmore

    Our aging Kenmore Coldspot (11 years old), model 10654682300, has issues. Recently the control panel in the fridge has started beeping and the Acceler-ice button flickering on and off. It was beeping even when the fridge was closed. Pressed and held the off button to see if I could get it to reset and now it won't come back on.

    After searching your forums it appears that this issue has to do with the Microcomputer. Does anyone here have experience installing those? It looks easy, appearing no harder than replacing a PCI card on a motherboard but I didn't know if there was more to it.

    Is it as easy as unhooking the old wires and popping the new one in? Is there any special Kenmore programming voodoo that a repair guy would do that would be missing on the Microcomputer that I receive from Sears Parts Direct.

    Insight into this problem is much appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Kevin,

    First unplug your refrigerator for about 5 minutes to see if the control will reset, if it doesn't then you will need a new temp control board.

    Here's the temp control board for your model:
    Whirlpool 8201527 Microcptr

    If you buy it from the link I posted to it and install it and it doesn't solve the problem, return it within 365 days for a full refund(minus shipping back).

    If you buy it from Sears and install it and it doesn't fix it, you can't return it for a full refund.

    Here's the parts diagram with the control board in it #6:

    Its located inside your console#1, just remove the #7 screws underneath it and it should drop down so you can remove it.

    Unplug your refrigerator first.

    Thanks for your prompt reply Jake!

    Thanks for your instructions. I'll try turning it off for 5 min to see if my possessed beeping fridge quits its beeping and returns to normal.

    Our possessed fridge has stopped beeping for the moment. It appear to have been a stuck button but I'm skeptical. Our water filter also needs to be replaced and the replacement should arrive next week. If that doesn't work and it starts up again I'll use that link you sent. Thanks again for the link.

    For those who may find this post via Google, try replacing your water filter. I've talked to other people with our Fridge and apparently having an out of date water filter makes the little microcomputer more and more insistent with its beeping.
