Refrigeration circuit charge

It would help to have refrigerant type.
The pressures will vary according to load, as when it is first started up. The best way is to weigh the amount of refrigerant charged. By charging by feel, can read the compressor current draw, it is safe to not exceed 1/6th of the compressor LRA. Can charge slowly by filling the evaporator to feel cold refrigerant from entrance to exit.
Condensor may fill with the bottom 1/3 cooler than the hot/warm top. Overfilling will overload the compressor, frost appears on the suction line, first portion of the evaporator may not cool off and actually be warmed.

Most Kenmores have a 24 hour defrost timer that engages the defrost cycle every 24 hours.
That noise you hear is the defrost system engaging.
Since the defrost timer makes one full rotation every 24 hours the thing can repeatedly "clunk" at 2 AM night after night waking you up.
The "trick" is to turn it down to the coldest setting while placing a couple of partially filled jugs of water in the freezer section to freeze into solid ice, then turn it off for however long it takes to back-up the timer. I suggest try for a time when nobody is home like at lunch time.
The ice jugs keep your food cold while it is off for a few hours. For example if it clunks at 10 PM while everybody is in bed, turn it off (un plug it) for 12 hours then back on - it will then clunk at 10 AM.
Placing a flame-retardant door matt on top of the freezer section helps reduce the noise. Use care when dealing with electricity.

The tray is located inside the toe panel at the bottom. Remove the tray carefully for cleaning as it will be full of disgusting effluent.

Fans circulate air . Unfortunately they use electric power to do this verses convection causing your electric meter to whirl-up watts on your bill.
Suggest replace your unit with a better quality quiet higher SEER number fridge. Since your fridge runs on and off 24/7/365 the savings should eventually pay for the new unit.

LG refrigerator not dumping ice.

I own a LG LFXS24566S and it was making ice but not dumping it.
If I pressed the reset button, it would dump the ice and fill the tray again but once frozen it would still not dump the ice. A technician was dispatched to replace the ice-maker but the problem remained. During the next visit, he had me "reboot" the refrigerator by removing power for five minutes, which fixed the issue.

Most of the time it's a compressor relay that does this. Your model will most likely have one. Get your model number and check the internet and see if your model has one. They are usually a small black plastic device attached directly to the compressor terminals and take up two of the three terminals. This is under the black plastic cover that is held on by a metal piece or wire, right on the compressor itself. Usually they're only about 10-20 bucks so it my be worth a shot.

Fridge and freezer cabinets aren't anywhere near as rigid as they look - it is important they stand on firm level ground and using a spirit level and any adjustable feet the cabinet should stand level and four-square. This is good for the compressor too.
Once level and square the door will remain in whatever position it is placed.

There isn't usually much or any adjustment available at the door hinges but if there is the door should be adjusted for the best fit and the magnetic door seal should close to the metal of the cabinet and create an almost airtight seal.

If after this process the door doesn't fit and an almost even gap between the door and cabinet isn't achievable, the door might be warped - the door also isn't rigid; very flimsy and flexible without the plastic liner and so any warp in the door is likely to be caused by a badly fitted liner or a poor quality liner...

Sounds like low Freon. Suggest refer to owner's for explanation of Error Code 4. Also suggest obtain a Chef's thermometer to monitor your temps.
