Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
It's set at 0F but the freezer is at -15Fto -20F and the over temperature alarm keeps tripping. Diagnostic indicator #1 shows pass for the freezer thermistor. What could cause this?
Even though the freezer thermistor passes the test, it's bad. The test only sees if the thermistor is open circuit or grounded. These thermistors can send bad information to board. Replace the freezer thermistor and I think that will solve your issue. Good Luck

The temp sensor for the over temp alarm is probably maifunctioning if you are sure that the temp isnt rising

Its called a Manometer. You shut the gas off and unscrew a alen/ hex head screw in the outlet side of the regulator. Screw the end of the manometer in then turn the gas on. turn the temperature up and down and the gas pressure should go up and down with the flame.

SOURCE: Freezer below temperature
If this is just a freezer then the likely problem is a failed thermostat. If it is a combo then check the refrigerator settings and possibly a door leak in the refrigerator. The refrigeration is shared between both sides and to my knowledge never 100% on either side.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Hi, not knowing the model number, I would say that if you can't see the reset button in or around the perimeter of the door, as the thermostat is located high up toward the top of the thermostatic expansion valve, it doesn't have the alarm button on it. What I would do, is locate the alarm buzzer, unplug it and clip the wire going to it. No harm done, and you can always reconnect the alarm. For the alarm to be going off when the temperature is good, the thermostat is out of calibration. If its freezing good, just clip the wire, no harm done.
