Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
We went away for the weekend and when we came back the fridge was leaking and at room temperature. We turned it off and on again by unplugging it. Tried adjusting the temp range buttons but nothing. It sounds like the motor is running but both the freezer and the fridge have defrosted. We recently had a new filter put in but as far as we know the repairman did nothing else.
Pull you refrig away from the wall and look behind the cardboard cover you will see the compressor (big black bowling ball looking thing). we need to determine if it is running you should here a low consistent hum. if the compressor is not running you will probably hear a humming and clicking noise about every 3-5 mins indicating the compressor is trying to start but shutting back down. the culprit is usually the start relay loated on the side of the compressor. this is a plug and play part and very easy to repace yourself get pt#8201786 from whirlpool the good instructions for replacing the part. good luck peyton
