Freezer and Fridge not getting cold

Up front...that's for any help.
I have a kitchenAid side by side. The Freezer/Fridge are not getting cold.
Opened it up. The fan is running.
Attached to compressor is a unit (not the capacitor, I think it is the starter). I hear a click ... then a long low humming noise...Then after about 20 seconds the sound goes away (and I can see a little spark).
There is a long pause, and then it repeats.
What do I need to replace?

This is one of those things that i really recommend you call a service tech. it sounds like the compressor is locked up. if the motor starter is sparking then it signals an over voltage to me. either way call a service man from sears. good luck

Not getting cold, freezer freezes food but refrigerator cool..


The fridge gets it cold air from the freezer. There is like an air tunnel that goes from the freezer (usually in the back) to your fridge to provide cold air.

What probably happened it the tunnel is blocked with ice or another liquid. The easiest thing to do is unplug the fridge for 24 hour so the ice can melt.

Freezer cold, fridge isnt. Vent issue. Please Help before thaw!


Is there any ice/snow whatsoever built-up on the rear panel of the freezer ????(very important to know this).
If so, you have a problem with the frost free part of your fridge,causing it to ice-up,
and blocking the air flow to the fridge section.

Repost, and we should be able to go from there.

Wigo.

Fridge and freezer not getting cold



  • You have 2 fans Make sure your top fan is working ,its located inside the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.
