Question about KitchenAid (KSRD22FKST) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kitchenaid KSRG25FKSS04 side by side - freezer has stopped working - I do not hear a start relay clicking when I plug it back in. Is it the compressor?

We came home to an acrid smell in the kitchen and traced it to the fridge - the freezer is working at a very minimal level, if at all.

Unplug the unit and pull the start relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, it is bad and needs to be replaced. Here is the part to order.

SOURCE: kitchenaid compressor starts then hear a click and it stops

most likely you have a bad start relay on the compressor. when looking at comp on the left side you will see a little square relay with 2-3 wires going to it. the pt# you need is 8201786 and can be purhased online or at a local appliance parts house this is an easy repair and the part should cost you less than 70 dollars. thx peyton

SOURCE: I just replaced the start relay (start device) on

Leave the capacitor on and don't worry about the cover. The capacitor really helps the compressor to not use as much electricity, thus saving energy.

The clicking is caused by the clixon turning off power to over heated motor that is not starting. Check the condition of the starter cap or relay and change. If a good cap or relay does not start your compressor then the rotor is frozen and you need a new compressor. (ouch)

KitchenAid Side by Side


if you hear a clicking like the compressor is trying to start, like a clicking on and off this sounds like it could be your start run relay trying to kick your compressor on. if this is bad it will continue to click, and your compressor won't start. unless your mechanically inclined this might be the time to call a service tech. the start run relay switch sits on the compressor behind the fridge.

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.
