Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi, I have KitchenAid, side by side refrigerator model KSCS25FJSS01. Bought new in January 2001. It's been great until 2 days ago. Both compartments were warm. I could hear the fan but not the compressor. I pulled the start relay out and I could tell the parts inside were broken by barely shaking it. I bought a new one from FSP and installed it. So far so good after about 3 hours. When is it safe to assume it was just the relay and not also the conpressor? Does the relay break because the compressor is going bad or just a weak part of the design? I would hate to put food back in it just to have to pull it out in a day or two. Appreciate your help. Thank you.
Definetly sounds as if your overload relay was indeed bad, and yes there can be miltiple problems to cause it to happen, the fact that you used nad exact part and it started with no hesitaion I would not have a concern, I would however checkthe condensor coil under refrig and vacuum it very well, the easier it breathes the less chance of overheating

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
