The refrigerator isn

I have the side by side model that's supposed to be "built-in" but sitcks out 4 inches. The refrigerator is not cold enough even though the setting is on max. I have the frezer on the middle setting & it's fine. How do I clean it? There s probably an accumulation of dust. I pulled it away from the wall and cleaned behind it.

If you allow the refrigerator to completely defrost by unplugging it and leaving the doors open, the coils (which are hidden from view usually behind the back interior wall) will allow air to flow around them once again ( after the heavy ice buildup melts away ) It usually drains down into a pan under the refrigerator . This is what contols the temp in the cold portion of the refrigerator. Likely the defrost coils have quit working. This is a common problem and requires a new defrost coil be installed to keep the ice from building up on the coils.

I have a kitchenaid side by side refrigerator model #KSSC42MFS05 and the freezer isn't getting cold enough to freeze ice cream and the ice maker isn't working.


Look at the rear wall of the freezer for a layer of frost building on the outside of that panel. If yes the refrigerator may be missing defrost. That would explain why the feezer temperatures are warming. If the ice maker is above 5 degrees F it will not be able to make ice. Things to check are the=> 2162044 Defrost Timer

I would like you to locate the defrost timer and turn the center with a flathead screwdriver slowly clockwise until compressor and fans turn off. Leave like this up to 30 minutes. This will cause the defrost to begin. If timer does not restart the compressor an fans after 30 minutes simply turn the timer again slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans restart. If the timer need to be turned like this then this would indicate that the defrost timer is defective and will need replaced. Let me know if you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze

Plum in a Amana fridge freezer


hello. I am assumming that your model has the ice and water dispenser. Not all models do. On the rear of these models with the ice and water feature you will find a small [1/4 inch] line that has to be connected to a cold water supply source. If you go to most any hardware store you can get the little kit necessary to make this connection. The kit consists of a length of 1/4 inch tubing, the connector to attach to the tube at the rear of your appliance, a valve and a tapping kit to tap into your closest cold water source. If the fridge is near the kitchen sink, you may choose to connect under the sink. If not, make sure you purchase a kit with enough 1/4 inch tubing to reach your nearest cold water pipe. J.

Our refigerator is not cooling .


Hello Laura,
If you look at the rear wall inside the freezer compartment down low and find a bunch of frost on that wall, you have an automatic defrost system failure. The most likely part that has failed is the defrost thermostat. It is located on the top of the freezer coil, clipped onto a piece of tubing. It will have 2 wires coming out of it and it is about the diameter of a quarter and about 3/4" tall. To test this part you would need a test meter and enough skill to check if the contacts are closed when the thermostat is frozen withing the specifications stated on the thermostat. I believe yours would close at 25 degrees F and opens at 47 degrees F. Part # 5303918214
I hope this helps you. supertechks
