Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators

Freezer not cold enough

Freezer is not cold enough as my ice cream is soft. The refrigerator has been making popping noises over the last week or so. The fan does blow and is not blocked. I regularly clean under the fridge and remove the grill to clean.

What setting do I use to make the freezer freeze food


When you are freezing something, set your freezer on its highest setting. However, if you are going to leave your freezer empty for a long time, you should change the setting to a lower one. Here's a great tip for ice cream: place a tub of ice cream in a ziplock bag before putting it in the freezer; it prevents freezer burn. You know when your ice cream gets so cold, it's hard to scoop out? Doing this stops that, it's keeps the ice cream just soft enough for easy scooping!

The ice maker is making 1 tray of ice a day


There are 3 things needed to make proper ice.

Water, cold, time.

Check the cubes that are being made, they should be the same size crescent shaped. If they are not solid and some are hollow or broken then you are not getting enough water to the refrigerator. This is usually caused by the little valve on your house piping that connects to the refrigerator being plugged with sediment.

If the the cubes are all solid and the same size check the temperature of the freezer, it needs to be below 10 degrees F and works best below 5 degrees F. If it is warmer than that it will only produce ice on a very slow schedule. If you do not have a thermometer ice cream is a good indicator of temperature. If ice cream is hard the temperature is below 5 degrees F, if it is soft you are not cold enough to make ice cubes either.

If all this checks out alright you may need to have the ice maker replaced. the modular ice makers are available for sale at most all part retailers.

Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough


If the problem just gradually started happening, it's possibly the defrost cycle that's not working right. Fridge doesn't defrost, the cooling system ices up, and the cold air can no longer travel through the fridge.

You can tell that's the problem if you fully defrost the fridge (turn it off for a day), then start it up again. If it works OK for a while, then does the same thing after a few weeks that's what it is. Either way, you need a repair person to fix it, or you need to defrost it regularly, but then what do you do with your food while you do that???
