Question about KitchenAid KSF26C4Xyy Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Water line freezing in refrigerator. I suspect a thermistor problem, but cannot locate it.

Had this fridge for about a year. All of a sudden the water line is freezing up in the back of the refrigerator. I have tried several things. Putting Armaflex around the reservoir and line as best as I could. Adjusting temperatures. Even changed the water valve. I've kept the freezer temp at 0, but I've set the refrigerator temperature at 37 (where it has been), then 38, now 39. I've taken temperatures in the refrigerator at varying places. It seems that the temperature even near the top of the refrigerator is not rising, but rather staying in the 34 degree range, and even though I haven't taken temps down near the crisper, I know it has to be colder since the warmer air rises (and because it is still freezing my reservoir every 2 days). So I'm suspecting a thermistor issue since the control board "seems" to be acting OK. I've seen a picture from a parts catalog of the thermistors, but they do not show the location nor how to get to them. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Water line keeps freezing on my GE side by side refigerator


Check to see if the water tank in the bottom of the refrigerator section is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the refrigerator section temp down.

first run the diagnostics on the unit from the tech sheet inside the unit,then if thermistors are bad replace these there are 2 one on the left and one on the right wall in both fridge and freezer,if good per diagnostics then replace the electronic damper door located between the fridge and freezer compartments in the upper left hand corner of the fridge behind the plastic grille as these doors break and jamb open or shut and the temps can no longer be regulated during the diagnostics tests you can hear this door operate if its operating correctly,lastly,if these fail to solve your problem,replace the main control board in the back behind a panel

Dometic rm2652 fridge section freezes everything


Hello Keith,

Just came across your question, hope its not too late to answer.

Your freezing problem for the fridge section is likely caused by
1) the thermistor has worked itself loose from the cooling fins.
2) the thermistor is no longer on third fin from the right
3) the thermistor is failing.

The evaporator in the bottom refrigerator side is freezing up. What is the most common fix for this problem.


Unplug the fridge and pull away from wall. There is a panel on back that has a control board. Look on both sides for burn marks or loose welds. After you manually defrost the refrigerator with a hair dryer you need to check the defrost element and defrost thermostat. Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

Water dispenser in my Maytag french door refer has suddenly stopped working. We use it every day and the filter seems to be fine. It almost sounds like it is frozen. Please Help!!!


We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.

Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.

I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.

Water line in freezer for ice maker keeps freezing


I have had this happen to me before. What happens is the water fill valve
does not completely close and the tube will freeze shut as a small ammount of water will continuosly dribble into the tube when the valve shuts off causing the tube to freeze solid. I tried to clean the valve but that did not work so I replaced it and that ended the problem. A new valve is not expensive.
