Condensor fan running all day


when you say you removed the cardboard, did you remove the back panel that covers the compressor, fan, and coils from the back? If so that is what is causing it to run too much, this will also effect the cooling.

I believe you're talking about the compressor and it sound like the starter/overload relay is cutting it off because either the relay is bad or the compressor is going bad. Test relay here.

Kitchenaid Superba compressor


The compressor relay is located on the compressor under a cover. Before you go to the compressor I would check for other problems that you can see and hear. If the compressor is running there is nothing wrong with its relay.
1. Check the condenser and make sure it is clear and free of dust.
2. If the compressor is cool or cold check for a bad temperature control.
3. Check the freezer compartment for frost on back wall.

Kitchen Aid Superba


To the person who hears a clicking sound you are correct, the compressor is trying to start but is not starting and that causes the overload to trip (click) wait a short time and it all happens again. Either the start relay is bad or the compressor is locked up. Less than 1 year old should be in warranty. If you want to try to check the relay you will need to unplug it from the side of the compressor. Once removed try to shake it and if you hear a rattle noise the relay is bad. To test the compressor you would need a test tool or be very experienced to perform accurate test.
