Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
7 year old side by side ksrs25ihbl02 stopped cooling either side. water line still works, as do the lights, but it stopped cooling with no other noticable symptoms.
The most common problems for refers not cooling is a condenser fan motor (the one that cools the compressor) is out. This can be caused by either a mouse has tried to jump trough the fan and it came on or a loss of grease or oil. There is no way to oil them so they have to be replaced. That is the problem especially if you unplugged the refer and it worked for a while then quit. If the fan doesn't cool the compressor it will overheat and shut down coming on intermittently then shutting off again. As for the refer that still doesn't cool when everything else does you may have an burnt overload also. Check the compressor area for burnt or stalled components ex. fan motor, relay, overload. If your compressor is out plan on spending from $300.00 to $500.00. But check the suggested components first. And beware there are appliance shops out there that will find one of these problems and give you an estimate for a compressor. Find someone reputable.

Please note that many of these refrigerators, the compressor is warranteed for up to 12 years. Up to year 7, both labor and materials are covered. From years 7 to 12, all you have to pay for is the labor. Check your owner's manual for info on how long it's warranteed for.

I too have a Kenmore, Model 106.52209100. No cooling at all in freezer and refrigeration sections. Lights and control panel status lights working. Motor running but only warm air. Issue was a relay that needed replacement. $71 for the relay, $180 fo the repairman.
