My Kenmore Elite french door, dual evaporator refrigerator also died at 2.5 years. It was the compressor. The part was covered under warranty, but the labor was 350.00 to install (in addition to the 99.00 initial fee to diagnose it). I had them ship me the parts (compressor and filter/drier), and I installed them myself since I have the tools and some experience. It is working fine now, but I suspect it will fail again within a couple years. From what I’m reading these are terrible products. I will not buy another and will tell everyone I know to avoid kenmore. (Actually, this is an LG refrigeration system inside sold under the Kenmore name). What a total joke to call it “Elite”. So sad. Sears used to stand for better quality.
