Question about KitchenAid KSRS25IL Side by Side Refrigerator
For acouple of days the fridge temp read 57 and the freezer about 18. it was makinig a whirring noise followed a few seconds later by a low volume click. I had a repairman come out and say (without performing any real diagnostic work as far I'm coverned) that I need a new control panel. Does this seem reasonable? After he left, I fully removed the back panel, unplugged the fridge and plugged it back in again. the temps went down to the recommended values (37 and 0) and the frigde sounded okay. this morning, temps are still the same but the fridge is back to making the whirring/click noise.

I have a similar problem, I have the same model number, mine is too cold in the the refrigerator but has the same " whirring/click noise" .I have removed the back cover and observed the condenser fan motor cycling on and off in 10 second or so intervals. the compressor is not trying to start so my guess is the control board is bad. I was hoping you have solved your problem before I buy a $250.00 part or a new "Frig" this one is 8 years old.

sounds like you may have a compressor problem. most compressors have a longer warranty on them, so i would recommend that you contact an authorized service center and have them come and take a look at it.

pull you refrig away from the wall and look behind the cardboard cover you will see the compressor (big black bowling ball looking thing). we need to determine if it is running you should here a low consistent hum. if the compressor is not running you will probably hear a humming and clicking noise about every 3-5 mins indicating the compressor is trying to start but shutting back down. the culprit is usually the start relay loated on the side of the compressor. this is a plug and play part and very easy to repace yourself get pt#8201786 from whirlpool the good instructions for replacing the part. good luck peyton

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
