Re: Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator

First thing I would this unit frosting up? Turn it off for two days...with the doors defrost completely. Clean out the condenser coils with a brush. Inspect and clean any gaskets not sealing. When up the back panel and check the compressor. It is that big black thing. Find and clean off the largest pipe. Watch the pipe...It will frost initially on startup. Does the frost remain after 5 minutes or turn to ice, water or dry out? If still frosty, you are low on gas. If other conditions, then you either are opening the door too often, those gaskets are damaged or you have defrost issues.

Hi, I have a KitchenAid KSRB25FKSS02 and our refrigerator is not cooling and it is already set to the coldest setting, but our freezer is working just fine.

This is a fairly common problem and is likely caused by the failure of a concealed fan that is responsible for distributing cooled air from the freezer section to the refrigerator side.
SearsDirect parts department has full information on your KitchenAid fridge at the link below:
The fan I suspect is shown here:
Distribution parts
Looking at the various pages should give you an idea if you consider this a DIY task or call a pro.

My freezer temp registers 28 - 36, I cleaned out coils, I notice that there is a fan in the back bottom right side, not sure what should make that run. My Ice is slowly melting. I had the freezer setting...

That fan behind the refrig , is the fan that cools the compressor . It should be running any time the compressor runs . If not running , replace it . The center divider between the fridge and freezer ( front strip ) should be getting hot to the touch if the fan is not running .

Freeze works fine, food side at 50 degrees.

Is there a fan that blows air over the cooling coils in the freezer? Not sure if side-by-side fridges have this. This was the reason for my top freezer / bottom fridge. Air was not being blown around the freezer and down into the fridge.

the freezer does all the cooling for both sides a few shelves down in the fridge on the left hand side there is an air intake make sure nothing is blocking it also listen for the freezer fan to run if its not look at the coils in the bottom of the freezer to see if they are heavly frosted in the fridge side at the top left side should be some vents hold your hand there to see if air is blowing through if not reply to me well go from there
