    Hi Carl Fsadni, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Can you hear the compressor come on? or does it try to come on and then stop?

    The coils are not getting cold. I am not hearing the compressor coming on or trying to come on. The fan goes on when you depress the switch that is controlled by the door. The fan is very silent and well balanced and the coils are mint clean.

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.

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Ice maker Stopped working

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"

Kitchen aid ksss42 not cooling fan runs


Hi,

With this particle number you gave there are over 40 different models. So I seek a better model number or a complete number to assist you better. Some models had a inverter to control the compressor and I have seen failure due to heat or surges. But without a model number to verify I can't and won't direct you on a fish hunt without the correct information. Get back to me with more information please.

Our emerson MW899SB just stopped working all of a sudden. The clock is ticking down, little cooking light still flashing, but there is no cooking power...any suggestions?


Yes, it's now junk unless it's still under warranty. The Magnetron has most likely gone out.

Check your evaporator fan, defrost thermo., or defrost heater. One of these parts out are what causes ice to buildup on your evaporator.

Kitchen aid cook top gas. iginator consstantly firing with knoob off


strutz, you probabley got one of the valve switches wet when cleaning. It could of shorted out or it might be just wet. Pull the control knobs off the burners and take a hair dryer and go over the valves slowly. See if it stops the clicking. If not you will probabley have to change out one of the switches. Im not coming up with anything with the RGA365 model number. Try the above posted first...Catriver..post back.
