    I have the Kitchenaid KSCS25FSBL-B, purchased it two weeks ago from R.C. Willey....dark inside, makes a few ice cubes at random, no digital read-out, 3 beeps, every few mintues....seems to be keeping things cool enough on the refridgerator side....

    We had a technician out that took the light switch out and it did not solve the problem. He asked that we turn the ice maker to the off position to see if that solves the problem. Please advise.

    Ours is a KSSC42FMS01 and is two years old. Last week it beeped and the interior lights don't come on when the door(s) are opened. Pushing the overtemp button, lights come on and stay on for about 5 minutes with door closed. After 5 minutes the lights are again out.

    We purchased a Kitchen Aid frig off the floor at a reduced price as it was a "floor model."  Got it home and noticed a weird beeping that we could not identify.  We thought it was perhaps a smoke detector in the house that needed a new battery.  After going through the process of elimination, we discovered that it was the refrigerator.  It makes 3 beeps in succession in a random time period.  Quite annoying.  We are contacting the store in the morning.

    I have had this happen on this refrigerator twice in 4 months. Both times they have replaced both the main circuit board (in the back) and the display board. It solves the problem for a short time, but it seems like this is going to happen again. In addition to this, I have had the ice dispenser replaced, apparently it's another common problem on this model. My other problem is getting frozen foods in the refrigerator, usually on the top or back of the shelves. I'm thankful I got the extended warranty from Sears. One more call out for the beeping problem and they'll refund my money.

We had the same problem. Our fridge was beeping and the lights would not come on. To stop the beeping and turn the lights back on we had to press the OVER TEMPERATURE RESET button. As soon as we did this, the lights came back on and beeping stopped. Hope this helps.

Same exact problem here with my KSCS25INSS side by side. After 10 minutes the three beeps, open the door and all the lights are off, including the display lights. The manual states "The interior lights will turn off if either compartment door is open for more than 10 minutes. Simply close and open the door to turn on the interior lights." OK, so when I give the door a good firm shut, it usually resets back to normal, for another 10 minutes, then back to the same problem. Closer inspection of the refrigerator door shows that it is slightly lower than the freezer door. Maybe the seal is not good enough because it is sitting low and the refrigerator senses that the door is open. So, I raised the door a bit with adjusting bolt at the bottom right of the door. No more beeping, problem solved. Try this first before calling a technician.

We had the same problem and discovered that the fridge side door was knocked by the movers and consequently the door was not shutting the light off.  We only saw it because all the lights were out and we could see light escaping through the imperfect seal that was also a result.  I loosened the bolts, moved the door slightly so it engaged the shut-off and now no beeps.

Why is my Samsung RF26XAERS refrigerator repetitively chiming, and how can I fix it?

NOISE? from the fridge inside? or from the outside compressor? In overstressed compressor or low freon level will make weird noises? a bad fan in freezer will? Even seen bad ice makers make weird noises? if the ice making is hindered by obstructions?

Our new KitchenAid side by side refrigerator makes a knocking noise after you close either freezer or refrigerator door. We haven't fully installed the ice maker yet, so I know it's not...

The knocking noises heard from the Freon moving through the sealed system are perfectly normal and usually do not last long. Since the evaporator coil is mounted in the freezer section, the noise is usually louder there. Some people say it sounds like marbles knocking together.

My refrigerator beeps every five seconds...then repeats in a minute. I checked that both doors are shut and nothing is blocking the shutting doors.

try checking to make sure the door button is not stuck when you open the door. The beeping means the indicator is reading an open door. Also check the freezer side.

The freezer side appears loud rattling noise and noise stop when the freezer door open. It happens couple times per day and last minutes to hour.Please tell me what's going on this

I had the same problem - A fan in the freezer section has ice building up on it and the noise you here is the fan blades hitting the ice. The fan stops when you open the door. I had to empty the freezer, shelves and all; remove the back panel (a pain in the neck) and chip the ice off of the fan housing. I have to do this every few months.

The unit is making a short cranking noise.

Sounds like the freezer fan motor to me.
Open the freezer door.
Push in and hold the light switch on the door and listen for the noise.
It will probably be at the back of the freezer where the fan motor is located.
Could be a motor going bad or a ice buldup around rge motor blades.

Beeping sound coming from control panel model#10656562400

Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer.
Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause which can't be lubricated or repair instead required to be replaced.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running

Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.
