Question about KitchenAid KSSP48QMS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I need to replace the evaporator in my Kitchenaid

The form did not have my actual refrigerator model. It is actually a Kitchenaid KSSP48MFB05, which is a built in side by side. I need to replace the evaporator. It is made of alluminum with copper lines coming to it. I belived that new one will have the copper stubs on the alluminum evaporator. My question is how do I solder the lines to it without damaging the seal where the copper stubs go to the alluminum evaporator. In the interest of lower heat levels would it be wise to use regular solder as opposed to silver solder?

How to dismount KitchenAid cooktop model KECT 365


Why not refer this issue directly to KitchenAid. Maybe they can explain the disparity between what the installation sheet shows and what you actually don't see.

I have a Hotpoint fridge freezer FFM90A, purchased in 2004. Just recently under the bottom drawer of the freezer, there is a thick coating of ice. This has continued to form after it has been cleared.


The problem is most likely either the defrost timer, and/or the defrost heater element(s) are faulty. The problem is that the defrost heater elements are not functioning properly and the evaporator core is actually freezing up and blocking the air flow through the evaporator core and also freezing up the thermal sensor, and when that happens there is no longer enough cold air being circulated through the refrigerator (that is actually how the unit operates and air must be able to flow through the evaporator core and then be circulated throughout the refrigerator to properly function) and as a result the refrigerator stops functioning and food can even thaw out in the freezer although the freezer seems to be iced up. (Usually at the rear wall where the evaporator core is located)

(Air flow through the evaporator core and cold air circulation and re-circulation through the refrigerator is performed by the air circulation fan and it also must be functioning)

Be sure to only use a blow dryer (with a towel on the bottom of the freezer) to thaw out the evaporator core and do not use any hard or sharp objects or the evaporator core can be damaged. The defrost timer can be located inside of the refrigerator itself, (see lower image) or it can be mounted outside usually either behind the air intake cowl or kick panel at the front base of the refrigerator, or most likely located behind the service panel on the rear of the refrigerator, and usually if the defrost timer is turning then it is most likely working, however the defrost timer can move very slowly and you can place a mark on the timer and the housing to check after about fifteen minutes to see if the position on the defrost timer has changed. The deforst timer on newer digital models can be built into the circuit board and is not a seperate timer mechanism.

Here are some images that should be similar to your situation to help assist you and the operation principal is the same for either an over-under, or a side by side refrigerator, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Water keeps forming in refig


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator compartment. This is all you need to do....


Best of Luck,


Your token of appreciation in form of rating would be highly obliged,


Concerned.

Water is forming in the "cool" part of the fridge. It's a 1998 Kenmore Coldspot. Is there a drain tube that might be clogged?


Yes, actually, there is. It should be located just below or behind the evaporator coils. You're probably going to have to take the shelves out and remove the ceiling and/or the back panel off to see it. Remember to disconnect the power, and good luck.

Ice forms on the bottom of the freezer and water leaks on the floor water to the ice maker was turned off and that did not solve the problem.


Assuming that this is a self-defrosting freezer (which almost all are today), the defrosting coil or the timer may be bad. The defrosting coil actually warms up the freezer slightly every X hours. This thaws the ice that starts to form in the freezer. The vapor is then evaporated and exists out through a drip tube to the bottom of the freezer/fridge into a pan. The pan usually has the compressor fan blowing over it to evaporate the contents.

Ice forming in freezer refrigerator not getting cold


Replace your heater and thermostat behind the back wall of the freezer. the air will not flow from the freezer to the fridge because of all the forming ice. Also replace the defrost timer. take your model number into a local parts store and they can get you the parts. This is very common!!!!! But pretty easy to do.
