Side by side (KSRB25FHSS05) loosing cool in freezer

My side by side (KSRB25FHSS05) started loosing the cool on the freezer side tonight. Unit seems to be running fine, fan running, compressor hot, no build up of lint on the coil, no build up of ice on the freezer back wall. Unit was built 02-2000.
Thanks for the advice!

    My kitchenaid superba side-by-side refrigerator is no longer staying cool in the freezer *or* the refrigerator side. It's humming quietly and clicking. Any quick fixes that will at least get my food through the night and then I can call a repair company in the morning... or go buy a new one?

    My Kitchenaid super BA ksrw25crss02 stopped cooling, it started first with jus the ice cream. so I cleaned it out and made sure nothing was covering air flow. unplugged it and plugged it back on and it got worst,the fridge then started not cooling. Only thin I notice was the digital controls could hardly work--got them working except for the on and off button--now it does not cool at all

Your compresor is hot but is it running at all or is it just humming trying to start and the just clicks off if it is just your overload that is tripp you need to replaced it that the box connected to the compressor on the left side that is why not is cooling if is running then is cheaper to buy a new one since the 5 year warranty on the compressor has expired

Jame open the back cover of the evaporator are in the frezeer section you will a type of radioator thats is your evaporator now check for frost if just frosted is ok if all iced up and a lot of ice then yoy have a defrost problem if no frost and compressor is running and you are sure of that then check the name plate for the date the unit was manufacture is less tha 5 years call a tech ou to check for freon or restriction ;leaks if less than 5 years is free but you have to be sure is running becuase the seal system in the only one under warranty ok

Relays are located on the left side of the compressor. How long ago did you smell the burning smell? Are you 100% sure the compressor is running? If it is, nothing is wrong with the relays. Although sometimes it is hard to tell if the compressor is running. By morning temps will be higher than tonight if compressor isnt running. If it isnt running, relays must be changed. I will post shortly on how to change the relays.

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.


The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/both-refrigerator-and-freezer-not.html ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Freezer and fridge not cooling properly


Clean it up. Check under it and behind, clean ,vacume and or blow out all dust and check the fins on the bottom, a soft brush and portable air compressor work really well but very dusty, take out side if possible, or just vacume really well.

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is


Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.
