Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
Kitchen Aid Model KRCA06XRSS00 stopped cooking. The fan and light work but the coils do not get work?
There are a few things that I would check first. Unplug the unit. Pull out the fridge, and remove the lower cover so you can see the compressor. On the compressor, there will be a small plastic piece. It might be held on with a wire retainer clip. Under it is a starting relay and overload protector. Check to see if they are broken or melted. If you are handy and have a good multimeter, You can check to see if the compressor has a bad winding or possibly grounded. You will remove the overload and starting relay. They are usually just pushed onto three pins. Measure resistance across two of the three pins: C to S, C to R, and S to R. The numbers should be close to the formula: (C to S)+(C to R)=(S to R). If that checks out, then you should check for continuity from S or R to the casing of the compressor. Make sure you scrape the paint off the case to assure a good contact. If you get any reading, the compressor is junk. Let me know how you make out.

To the person who hears a clicking sound you are correct, the compressor is trying to start but is not starting and that causes the overload to trip (click) wait a short time and it all happens again. Either the start relay is bad or the compressor is locked up. Less than 1 year old should be in warranty. If you want to try to check the relay you will need to unplug it from the side of the compressor. Once removed try to shake it and if you hear a rattle noise the relay is bad. To test the compressor you would need a test tool or be very experienced to perform accurate test.

I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.
All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"

Ended up having a freon leak in tubing around door. Luckly the warranty was 5 years in sealed system. New one was FREE.
