Fridge & freezer not quite cold enough

We recently given a used KitchenAid KSRS25ILSS01. It was working/running when we went to pick it up, although it was empty and we didn't check the inside temp it 'felt' cool/cold. We brought it home, cleaned it up and plugged it no. Powered up but wouldn't cool. Determined the compressor wasn't coming on (it was before we brought it home). Replaced the start components. Compressor came on unit started to cool. Fast forward to 2 weeks later - neither the fridge or freezer have ever gotten quite cool enough. This unit has a digital temp setting, we have the freezer set at zero and fridge at 33 - both are the lowest settings. The freezer is about 8 degrees and the fridge is at 38-40. Nothing blocking any of the vents. The fan in the back of the unit next to the compressor is running. There is air flowing in both the fridge and freezer. There is no ice build up on the coils in the back of the freezer. Ideas? Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: ice build up on coil inside freezer

it can be two things the refrgerator probably has a small refrigerant leak therefore it ices up, or the defrosting heater on the begining of the coil is faulty.

SOURCE: Freezer cold not frozen, fridge cool but not cold enough.

Is the refrig running constantly? and still can't get to 0deg???

You say it's 30deg in there! I assume you are using a thermometer IN the freezer. Is the fan in there running (you can hear it). If it is, and you say you aren't cold enough, you lost freon...

I have a kitchenaid superba ksrs25ilwh side by side fridge. The freezer is working fine but the fridge wont get cold enough even at the lowest temp


check the damper vent door for proper opening and closing as if this door is frozen shut or broken and jammed it cant open to let cold air in from freezer it will be behind a plastic grille between the freezer and fridge compartments and you should hear a fan in there running to move cold air too

Freezer fine /After power went out twice fridge not cold enough


In back of the refrigerator is a removable panel behind which is the compressor. Listen for a hum and a click. If you hear those sounds the compressor may have failed. Behind that same panel is a condenser where heat is removed from the refrigerating system. Make sure it is clean and check that the fan operates when the compressor runs.

Fridge not getting cold enough


listen for the compressor running in the back at the bottom. when you hear that running, open the freezer section. do you hear a fan blowing inside the freezer? if not, the evaporator fan motor is jammed with ice build-up or it's bad. hope this helps.
