Question about KitchenAid KSRA25ILSS Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi: I've got fridge problem where the refrigerator side is getting too cold. It's becuase the inside (evaporator) fan runs all the time, and the little baffle door stays open. I've tested the sensors with ohmeter at different temps, put the controller in diagnostic mode which does start and stop the fan, and the door modulates open and closed so it looks like evertying is fine. Can anyone help me? I've spent lots of time, replaced the controller but no one seems to know what would be causing this. thanks!!!!
Is the thermostat on the fridge side sending the correct signals to the controller?

Great job on the defrost drain fix, it's exactly what we do. Check that the duct damper does close fully when the refer side temps are set to warmest. It could be freezing due to that damper not closing fully or at all. It should only be open to let cold air in until the temp is satisfied then closes again. The temp control in the refer may also be failed so it doesn't know the temp was reached. The bi-metal is only there for a safety device basically to kill power to the heat elements if the defrost cycle runs too long or the area gets too hot. I'd suspect the air damper is stuck open and contstantly letting cold air into the refer side.

make sure all your fans are turning. maybe try to remove the knobs and see if you can turn them without the knobs, possibly they could be stripped.

The lower hinge on each door
may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this
assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not
seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if
it rises up when opened.
Part 12 on this diagram is your cam. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=KSRB27FHSS02&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=0593&modelName=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00006&componentDescription=REFRIGERATOR%20DOOR&documentId=O2030395&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Find the return air It can't come in if it can't get out. also if you were checking it with the freezer door open you will not feel the air. Just in case i have done that myself. if all air ducts are open and it's getting o I should be 20 in fresh food with the control on 9.
