Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a kitchen aid side by side build in 2000. The freezer and frig are not being cooled. The fans come on, and the compressor sounds like it comes on for a few seconds, then I hear a click and it sounds like the compressor is shutting down.

Refrigerator kitchen aid


Might be a defrost problem. or maybe a damper or bad fan motor. Look in the freezer for signs of frost on the back wall. If you see it then that means the frig is not defrosting. Unplug the unit for a few days and if it goes back to normal operation that will confirm a defrost problem.

Freezer/Frig will not get Cold


Check the compressor to make sure it is running. If not then check to make sure you are getting the proper electrical supply to the compressor.

Not cooling good


There is a fan down by the compressor that aids in cooling compressor and getting rid of the water that comes out of the freezer during defrost cycle. I am sure that you took the paper cover off the back of the unit on the lower back side so your unit might not have a fan. Now lets look at the fan inside the freezer is it running can you hear it when you open the door? Does the compressor make a clicking sound as it is hot to touch and trying to come on? get back with me ok ken

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Unit doesn't work when icemaker is on- Kitchen Aid Superba


that is unusual for the ice maker to cause it not to cool, but definitely not unheard of. if the fill tube to the ice maker, or ice maker itself, is leaking down the back of the freezer, behind the evaporator cover, it would form ice around the evaporator fan motor. this would cause the fan not to run, and the temp in the freezer and frige would rise. the ice would melt when it went into defrost, but then build up again. you should remove the rear panel in freezer and see if you see any ice build up around the fan blade, and if so, find where it is coming from. I hope this is the case for you. much cheaper than a compressor or new frige if it is. let me know if you have further questions. good luck, shane.

Divider strip between fridge and freezer is hot


First take the grill off at the bottom under the doors look at the grate under the frig That is your condenser it will probably be covered in dust clean it off the see if you can fill air blowing under the frig there is a fan under there that keeps that coil cool and it runs around the door to keep condensation from build around the doors if no air is blowing take the back panel behind the Frig and there should be a fan running if the compressor is running this will also cause the compressor to over heat and will not cool as well but it might just need to be cleaned Good luck

Whirlpool refrig not cooling


is the fan in the freezer working when compressor is on? if not you need to replace it. do you have a large frost build up on the back wall of the freezer? if so you have a defrost problem, or back to the evaporator fan. If the fan is working you have a defrost problem which could mean a bad heater, timer, or bad defrost thermostat....
