Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I moved into a house with this model and have no information on how to set the different settings for the refrigerator and freezer. I tried to set the recommended temps, but nothing. It is so cold in the refrigerator side that everything seems to be frozen. Waste of energy and ruined many foods. HELP!!!!!

Is the freezer side frozen too? If so, turn the control to a warmer setting. Try mid-range and let it stabilize overnite.

Make sure water is turned all the way on. If still not getting water, you might have to check the screen inside the water valve to make sure it's not plugged. Also make sure your electrical connection on water valve is on securely.

Westinghouse RJ532, 530 Litre, Frost Free Fridge/Freezer keeps stopping - if we move the little red dial in the fridge under the air temperature control it starts up again, goes for awhile and then stops....


If the refrigerator was tipped on back or side, even part way, it has to wit upright at least overnight, because of the freon flowing upward.
If you just moved in and it has been sitting and unplugged, then it may be low on freon.

Here are some tips


If you open the fresh food compartment of your fridge (the non-freezer compartment), you will most likely see two different controls. One refers to the refrigerator temperature and the other refers to the freezer. Different manufacturers use different wording, but the idea is the same.
The first thing you need to know in order to understand what these controls really do is that all the cold air in the entire refrigerator is made in the freezer compartment. A portion of that cold air is then blown into the fresh food compartment. How much cold air gets blown in is controlled by the "freezer" control, which is really just an air baffle that opens or closed to let more or less air into the fresh food compartment. The "refrigerator" control is actually a thermostat that feels the temperature inside the fresh food compartment and turns the compressor on and off according to the temperature that the thermostat feels.
Let’s run through an example. Suppose you decide that your ice cream isn’t hard enough. You adjust the "freezer" control to make your freezer colder. What you’re actually doing is restricting the amount of cold air that gets blown from the freezer into the fresh food compartment and so keeping more of the cold air in the freezer. As a result, the freezer will get colder but also the fresh food compartment will tend to get warmer because its cold air supply has been diminished. The "refrigerator" control (the thermostat) will feel this increase in temperature inside the fresh food compartment and will keep the compressor running longer in order to maintain the temperature setting on the "refrigerator" control. So, you can see that any change you make to one control will affect the other.
Many people then wonder, "Well, how do I know what the correct setting on the controls should be?" Since the temperature inside a refrigerator will vary according to lots of external factors such as frequency and duration of door openings, it is impossible to say where your controls should be set all the time in order to maintain a desired temperature in the freezer and fresh food compartments without knowing the actual temperature inside both compartments. For this reason, you should place two thermometers in your refrigerator: one in the fresh food compartment (the big one) and the other in your freezer. The controls should then be adjusted to achieve -10 to +10ºF in the freezer and between 36 and 38ºF in the fresh food compartment.
Keep in mind, too, that it takes 24 hours for any change in the controls to work through the system and reach steady state so don’t look for instantaneous changes in temperature when you make control setting changes. Knowing the actual temperature inside your refrigerator compartments is also a great way to save money on your power bill since you can adjust the controls to avoid running your compressor longer than needed to keep your food cold.

GE side x side (model # GSH25JS) was in a house that i moved into... it was unplugged a full of rotten food and maggots. (Yes, it was horrific!) Anyway got it all emptied, scrubbed and disinfected. ...


Check the wiring for loose connection of parts including the temperature control, defrost button or timer, the relay and anything. Also check for leak in the tubing. Since you moved from different places maybe far, it's possible that bumps, bouncing the pressure inside system tube might occurred.
I hope my ideas help you.

We recently moved to a house with a Bosch KGV28V01GB fridge freezer outside but it doesn't seem to be working. Its plugged in and the light comes on when the door is opened. The switch is set to ON but...


Good day,
Refrigerators are designed for indoor use only. The lowest temperature they will perform normally is 55 degrees.
As the temperature drops below that it degades to the point of not working at all.
P.S. If you move it inside, give it a 24 hour warm up period. The oil in the compressor will be too thick, and can even ruin itself trying.

Refrigerator not keeping temp.


There is normally a fan in the freezer (usually removing the back panel from inside the fridge will show it [sometimes you need to pull the bottom panel of the freezer off] The panels are normally secured with phillips head screws.). If it doesn't turn, it probably needs replacing. Make sure the coils are not iced over. [unplug while removing panels, then plug back in... the temp will have risen in the freezer so the fan should come on right away].

Make sure that the "vents" in the freezer (bottom of the freezer - in the front back or both) are not covered.

Some fridges have a separate control for fridge temp, make sure that was not moved, or try setting to a colder setting.

Try moving the air flow setting in the refrigerator up higher. I know my beer wasn't that cold before and moved the setting from 2 -6 and that made all the difference

No cold air coming into the fridg


iF YOUR REFRIGERATOR SETTING IS HIGH, YOU NEED TO LOWER THE SETTING IN ORDER TO GET IT COLDER.
If you still have no air flow, there is a fan that blows cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. The motor could be burned out.
