Question about KitchenAid (KSRD22FKST) Side by Side Refrigerator

Kitchenaid 10 year old refrigerator compressor problem

The compressor keeps clicking off and on but won't come on. And of course, the technician said the whole compressor would have to be replaced at a cost of $600? Any other solution would be helpful. The model is KSCS25QFWH01
Thanks,
CMG

Hello, I have a Kitchenaid Superba KSRB25FHSS02 side by side refrigerator. It was made in 1999 and came with the house. Two years ago, the compressor went on it and we had it replaced. A couple days ago,...


It's really up to you, to decide whether you want your refrigerator to be fix or replaced and buy a new one. You need to calculate the cost between repair cost and the price of a new refrigerator. Which one is suited your budget plus the convenient of the trouble free unit for many years to come.
Since your refrigerator is about 12 years old already and it's undergo several repair, including the most expensive compressor replacement. I think it's economical to spend for a brand new unit.
New unit have service warranty of about one year, it will take many years before it undergo service repair if you use and treat it with proper care.
Good luck on your decision.

Yes this would be the compressor and they run with a technician roughly 600 dollars. There are two things that will cause a Refrigerator not to cool or freeze, the coils being clogged or the compressor is shot. In this case the compressor is gone. Better to just get a new frig
