Kitchenaid refrigerator control panel

The control panel and interior light stopped working on the refrigerator side of our side by side. I put in new light bulbs and turned off/on the circuit breaker. It seems to be cooling still and the freezer side works fine. Any thoughts??

SOURCE: lights flashing all cooling appears normal ice maker flap continually opens and shuts no water buttons not operational

As I mentioned before my Maytag was doing the same thing, I called Maytag expecting a big fight but they were really nice about it.
This is a recall problem and even if your warrenty is up Maytag will repair it at NO COST to you.
They shiped me the HV board and sent a repairman who had it fixed in about 10 minutes with a newley designed HV board.

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

SOURCE: Kitchenaid KSRA25IL Freezer working Fine - Refrigerator not

I had a similar problem where the refrigerator side was not cooling well but I could feel very little air coming through the vent in the top left corner.I blew hot air from a blow driver into the vent for about 1 minute which melted ice that was hanging from the bottom of the vent cover.Cold air started blowing harder thru the vent and cured the problem.

SOURCE: Refrigerator cools as normal. Trips 15 AMP circuit breaker.

a full size refrige has to be on a 20 amp circuit, a 15 amp is just not big enough.. you should also know that this circuit has to be on a 12-2 gauge wire.. I also highly recommend installing a 20 amp HD receptacle

SOURCE: KitchenAid Side-by-side (ksrg25fkwh05) - Freezer not working

The odds are it is a circuit board problem...I had a huge Amana 27 cubic foot side by side and it did the same thing...I diagnosed the problem and replaced the circuit board ....which actually controls everything...one sure sign is to pull the unit out as the other person did and to access the back of the unit where the compressor is...(the comptressor should be on 85% of the tme....if it is not on and warm or hot to the touch then it is a circuit board problem....since compressors will continue to run if there is a defrost problem (most of them anyway), or an Ice build up, etc etc. I don't recommend a layperson trying to replace the circuit board (mine cost $115,) but if you do it is generally in the door mine was a long thin circuit board behind the fridge door handle. .P.S. the heat that the other person felt on the door and around the door seals is normal lots of people don't even know this heat strips exist until something haappens and they start feeling around...these heat strips are to prevent frost of ice build up where the door meets the fridge framd...which can happen due to the extreme temp difference between the two...(inside temp and outside temp).

I hope this has helped...good luck...Knowledge gives you a base from which to yield power over unscrupulous repairmen whop may try to take advantage of people.
Again ...good luck and let me know what happens.....Please rate me .....The Fang.

If the previous posts do not solve the problem, these fridges frequently have failures in the control board. The control board is no-longer-available from Kitchenaid however is can be rebuilt at www.fixyourboard.com. The rebuild comes with a 2 year warranty. The turn around time is a few days.

Front panel stopped working and fridge is not running now,interior light works ,no humming or clicking sounds when plugged in ,short power failure before it stopped working


IF the power failure was due to lightning or something that caused a surge, the control board is most likely bad. You can attempt to reset it by unplugging it for 5 minutes and try again. If not you are looking at a new control board. You could contact your insurance for coverage due to the power issue.

My frigidaire refrigerator ice dispenser stop working while in use. The control panel also stopped working along with both interior lights all at the same time. The panel is locked up with the number


Good Afternoon Randal,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FGHC2345LF5, is having trouble with the ice dispenser, control panel, and both interior lights went out. I also see that there are numbers on your panel. If the numbers are showing Sb, this tells me your appliance is in the Sabbath mode. To get out of this mode you will need to press and hold the down arrow on the freezer side and the up arrow on the refrigerator side simultaneously for 5-10 seconds. If this does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance. You can do this by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and check the control panel as well as the ice dispenser and lights. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Inside lights of KitchenAid KSF26C4XYY not illuminate


I bet your fridge was put into Sabbath Mode.

Sabbath Mode is designed for those whose religious observances
require turning off the lights and dispensers.
In Sabbath Mode, the temperature set points remain unchanged,
but the interior and dispenser lights turn off, all sounds and alarms
are disabled, the dispenser display screen backlight turns off, and
the dispenser levers are disabled


To turn on Sabbath Mode, press and hold LIGHT and
OPTIONS at the same time for 3 seconds. When the feature
turns on, "Sabbath Mode" will appear on the dispenser
display.
To turn off Sabbath Mode, press and hold LIGHT and
OPTIONS at the same time for 3 seconds again.

I have a KitchenAid SxS model # KSRG25FTST01 with an icemaker problem. It stopped making ice, but the water still dispenses. It makes no noise and no water in the ice tray. I never hear it try to fill with...


If the thermostat behind the left side of the fill tray goes bad, the cycle will stop completely. Cost of thermostat is $20.00. Cost of new icemaker with new motor and everything including thermostat is $45.00, brand new, on EBay plus shipping. Cost for new icemaker from repair shop, $153.00 plus tax. Control board circuit panels each side of freezer compartment will go bad also stopping the ice maker cycle. these control boards come in pairs, one for each side of freezer compartment. Cost for new circuit panel control board from repair shop, $215.00. Cost from EBay brand new circuit control board $45.00 plus $8.00 shipping. Easy to install both, icemaker and control board circuit panels. Phillips screw driver and small socket set is all you need for removing and installing these items.

The refrigerator just stopped working,the interior lights still o


http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-JCB2280HES-%3d%3dc212
this is the problem because it control the compressor and fans
but to be sure and on the safe side if the thermosat is bad it wont work either. there are two wires that go to the t'stat (http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-JCB2280HES-%3d%3dc214temperature control) jump them or put them together if it goes on replace if it doesnt go on replace the timer control board (the first link i gave you)

KSRS22FGWHO4 INTERIOR LIGHT LOCATION


As I mentioned previously, I had previously tried a new bulb behind the control panel and it didn't work. I tried again, but first I unplugged the refrigerator, and then installed the new bulb. And when I plugged the refrigerator back in, the light worked!

I am not sure why unplugging the refrigerator before installing the new bulb worked, but it did.
