Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
Refrigerator is cool but not as low as normal. no ice buildup in back. I see some light frost on evaporator. All areas of the refrigerator are spotless clean. Fans seem to all work. Will not make ice but I think that is just because freezer temp is not low enough. I'm stumped.
ON THE BACK OF FREEZERS IS A GAS BOTTLE THING (THE BIG BLACK THING ON THE BOTTOM)...IF THIS IS NOT WORKING HAS IT SHOULD BE.........THEN YOUR FREEZER WILL NOT FREEZE.......CONTACT THE SUPPLIER THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO SORT IT OUT FOR YOU

Take the back cover off and look at the frost. If the frost is only at the bottom of the coils then you are low on R-12 or R-134 and the defrost t-stat is cutting out to quick. If the coils are well frosted then you have a bad t-stat.

From your description, you have a bad evaporator fan motor. The part number for a replacement motor is #5304445861.This is not a direct replacement but is more reliable.Remove everything in the freezer, take off the back panels and you will see the fan.
If there is a large frost buildup on the coils and the fan is turning you have a defrost problem. If that is the case, please call me at 334-347-0000 and I will walk you through it.
