The motor in my ice maker must have shorted out causing a fire. I heard a "pop" and looked in the freezer to find flames were coming out of the ice maker! I ain't got time for dat! Or, money! LOL!
No one really heard of this before, not even the nice folks at the Sears store in Lake City. However, I googled "kenmore ice maker fire" and voila! I found complaints!
The fire damaged the integrity of the freezer, so it's trash. $500 later, I have a new refrigerator w/out ice maker on the way tomorrow.
I have been buying Kenmore/Sears products for over 30 years. Never had a problem (except the MayTag Products were ***).
Monetary Loss: $500.
