Question about KitchenAid KSRS25IL Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a kitchenaid Superb refrigerator KSCS25INSS01 and the temps are warmer than normal.

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.
Lil help?

hi there,

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.

thanks

SOURCE: Refrigerator is not getting cold

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

A kenmore side by side model 106 5661 2500 has warm refer and cold freezer


If the freezer temps are normal and the refrigerator is warmer than normal, the the air flow from freezer to refrigerator is being hampered either by ice on the evaporator or the freezer is stuff in such a way that normal airflow between freezer and fridge is hampered. If the auto defrost is not working properly you will have warmer freezer temps and a relatively warm refridge. Check the defrost timer and defrost heater element.

The temp sensors, or thermostat may not be correctly reading the temperature. if the temp sensor reads the wrong temp for example it'll think its warmer than it actually is and keep running to try and satisfy the tstat.

Freezer works great, but fridg. will not get below 50


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

Freezer temp too high


Air must circulate in the freezer when working properly. I am guessing the recirculating vent in the freezer may be blocked which would not bring warmer air back to the coil to be cooled. As for the door, I theorize there may be too much negative pressure which pulls the door in while you were pulling out ... don't have solution yet.

Kitchenaid superba refer side by side


its normal for the temperature to stay around 28 degrees farenheight int the bottom drawer. (fresh cut meat keeps better at his temp). you can adj the temp slide near the bottom of the refrig next to the botom drawer to help adj temp. veggies will almost always freeze in the bottom drawer. also adj the temp controls to a little bit warmer to help as well.


Keep in mind the mid point settings on your refrig is just a starting point for you to adj to where it works best for you and your usage..
