Question about KitchenAid (KSRD22FKST) Side by Side Refrigerator

KitchenAid Side by Side

The freezer is thawing out and the fridge side getting warmer. I hear it trying to engage, then after about 5 seconds when it would normally come to life and start making the typical refrigerator noise, instead I hear a "pop". It's almos like the noise a lightbulb makes when it blows out.

Everything seems to work fine. The lights come on, there is a bit of cold air coming out of the ice maker, but it's not enough to make a difference.

Anything I can try before having to call in service?

Thanks!

If you hear a clicking like the compressor is trying to start, like a clicking on and off this sounds like it could be your start run relay trying to kick your compressor on. if this is bad it will continue to click, and your compressor won't start. unless your mechanically inclined this might be the time to call a service tech. the start run relay switch sits on the compressor behind the fridge.

Have you checked the damper at the top left hand side, could be frozen - take it off thaw it out and replace. The freezing could have damaged the unit though.

Question: was the fridge running when you went to pick it up ?
Was it already on ?
My thinking is that you have the ice build up problem too and that it never thawed. If you unplug it, thawing could take days. Seriously. If you take the inside panel off and get some heat on it
only an hour or so.
You have the exact same model I do, and it works good, just designed poorly. It needs a drain hole on that condensor.
And your fan probably is fine. Do not spend $500.
