Question about KitchenAid KSRB25FRBX Aluminium Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Kitchenaid side-by-side fridge-freezer is not cooling

Freezer is OK - fridge is the problem. Vents are not blocked. Cold air is flowing out of the air baffle on the top of the freezer side but no cold air is flowing into the fridge side. I ran the test disgnostic and the air baffle motor tried to run but made a clicking sound - still no air into fridge. Looks like a faulty air baffle motor? Is this something I can replace?
Unit is 3.5 yrs old - model KSRB25FRBX00

SOURCE: Fridge not cold...freezer is ok.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this normally would point to the fan not spinning. The function of the fan is to draw the cold air from the freezer and force it through the vents to the refrigerator area. Even having said this, the fan is activated by the logic controller based on the the thermostat setting of the refrigerator and condition of the door (it must be closed).

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid KSRA25IL Freezer working Fine - Refrigerator not

I had a similar problem where the refrigerator side was not cooling well but I could feel very little air coming through the vent in the top left corner.I blew hot air from a blow driver into the vent for about 1 minute which melted ice that was hanging from the bottom of the vent cover.Cold air started blowing harder thru the vent and cured the problem.

SOURCE: frost forms in freezer, blocking vents so temp in both freezer and fridge is warmer than normal

You have an issue with the defrost system, either the timer, thermostat or heating element. Probably the defrost timer refer to the manual to find it. If you don't have the manual check the makers web site for a parts breakdown. You should be able to put it into defrost manually by turning the knob and see if that helps. You may need to do this sevral times as it only stays in defrost for a little over twnety minutes and run cycle for 6,8 or ten hours. If the ice build up is heavy then twenty minutes may not do the trick thus the need for repated defrost cycles. If it does the trick replace the timer. If not check the thermostat and heater element.

SOURCE: Fridge not cooling...freezer works fine.?

Have you checked the damper at the top left hand side, could be frozen - take it off thaw it out and replace. The freezing could have damaged the unit though.

Fridge gets cold air from freezer to cool it. Your freezer is fine but not enough cold air is getting into fridge compartment. U have some dampers or louvers that direct air flow to fridge and if they are not set properly cooling will not be adequate. Check those out.

This is a Kitchenaid KSRS22FGBL00 - The freezer works good with a temp of -20c but the fridge side is not cold & has a temp of 8c. There is no frost build up anywhere. The air vents are not blocked. ...


Hello hlook,

I understand that you are having a problem with your side-by-side refrigerator. The Frezzer is staying closed and the fridge is not getting the air flow from the freezer in order to stay cold. The only possibility it can be is the fan. The fan may be turning but not at the rpms needed to move the air in to the fridge. As I have looked at the air flow chart for your fridge that is the only outcome I can come up with. CLICK HERE to view the air flow chart for your firdge.

With the cover off of the fan try and judge how much air is being moved by the fan. It should have pretty good air flow like the low setting on a box fan. You should be able to fell the air flow from two to three feet away.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

ON MY KENMORE SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR THE FRIDGE ISNT GETTING COLD BUT MY FREEZER IS FINE


Check to see if the air flow vents are not being blocked. The refrigerator side sucks air from the freezer side and blows it through vents on the side top and is controled by a thermostat marked, usually Refrigerator Cooling. If your thermostat is off, then no air, if the thermostat is kaput, then no air.

Not getting cold, freezer freezes food but refrigerator cool..


The fridge gets it cold air from the freezer. There is like an air tunnel that goes from the freezer (usually in the back) to your fridge to provide cold air.

What probably happened it the tunnel is blocked with ice or another liquid. The easiest thing to do is unplug the fridge for 24 hour so the ice can melt.

Freezer too cold frosty, and refrigerator section too warm


Sounds like a defrost problem if the evaporator is frozen over. If it's just Ice blocking air transfer on a top freezer model, then it's a blocked defrost drain.
