Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
We have a KitchenAid Superba Side-by-side refrigerator. Everything is working fine, but our "Over temperature reset" button on the top control panel keeps coming on (many many times a day) and gives off a high-pitched ringing noise. We have to keep pushing the button to turn it off, but we don't know why it is going off. The temperature is fine, the food in the freezer and fridge are fine. Can you tell us what's going on? And how to turn the thing off? Thanks!
I called the KitchenAid customer support number. Found out that control goes off when the temperature of the fridge is above 48 degrees (i.e., over a few days, the food would be spoiling). This is not the case for ours, since everything seems to be working fine. They said there is probably something malfunctioning with that button/control, and there is no manual turn-off mechanism. We have to call someone to come and fix it.

You have done a good job of attempting to diagnose by process of elimination, but this is a more complex system. I have provided some links below to assist you in diagnosing your problem. Links courtesy of www.repairclinic.com.
1. Ascertain that the evaporator fan is operational. This may be controlled by the Door Switch, (No.4) and could cause the fan to be inoperable.
2. Ascertain that the Fresh Food compartment light goes off when door is closed.
3. The air diffuser may be faulty by not controlling the air flow from the freezer properly
Tip: Always maintain dual temperature control settings at equal or +/- 1 setting position.
How refrigerators work:
You will need to verify operation of the following components listed below:
1. Evaporator fan motor
2. Air diffuser assembly
3. Light switch for refrigerator/freezer light
4. Door switch

The #1 cause for this problem: The floor beneath the fridge is uneven, causing the refrigerator "box" to be out of square. Adjust the levelers on the fridge bottom to compensate for the uneven floor. That should do it.

Tips for a great answer:
If you can isolate the room around refrigerator I can help. Room around refrigerator must be normal household temperatures. Separate power to refrigerators 20 amp. breaker and away from heated area. Thanks, Sea Breeze
