Question about KitchenAid KSRD22FKBT / KSRD22FKWH / KSRD22FKBL Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Both refrigerators stopped working.


Both of my refrigerators stopped working at the same time.
There is power and everything seems to be OK. The light is on, the freezer fan is blowing, etc, but there is no cold.
This baffles me to no end.
The only guess that I can make is that the voltage has dropped or that the fridges got overloaded by a voltage spike.
All other appliances in the house function perfectly.
Please help!
Thank you, Dmitry.

Re: Both refrigerators stopped working.

So you have two Kitchenaid refigs??? Is one a freezer and one just a refrig?? Anyhow it sounds like it could be the compressor start relay. You will axcess this through the rear panel (usually cardboard). Let me know if you are going to attempt to diagnose the failure.

Hi Kim, Before you check out the link below, Read about your refrigerator not cooling?Is your older or newer model refrigerator plugged in, getting power, the lights are on inside but the fridge will not cool and the freezer won't freeze? If your refrigerator or freezer has suddenly stopped cooling and the freezer won't freeze, we have multiple solutions for you.If you hear a clicking sound coming from the back of your refrigerator/freezer, then the problem is most likely the compressor is overheating or not getting proper power and will not start. The compressor is the component on your refrigerator that allows your refrigerator to cool. If this component is not working properly your refrigerator will stop cooling. Most of the time the compressor is not the component that has failed.

Everything seems to work just fine except the ice maker which stopped for no reason. I have checked everything. The water dispenser works well, the water pressure is more than sufficient. We lost power,...

I know of one trick that might solve your problem . First , make sure the lever that swings up and down during cycle is all the way down . Then , pour one eight ounce cup of water into the ice maker where the slots are . Hopefully , when the water freezes , the ice maker's sensor will detect the ice and start the dump cycle . If it does , and everything is OK inside the unit itself , it should be OK after it ejects the ice .

Either there is a loose connection at that board or in the plug where the wiring goes into the door (should be at top or bottom door hinge). If all connections are tight then replace the board. Not sure how old this unit is but it does come with a one yr warranty from date of purchase.

Whirlpool Refrig Side by side

the problem is almost certainly in the controller or its power supply. Try pulling the plug for a minute or two - for some reason the display portion of the controller may have been sent out to lunch by a power surge or alpha particle. It woudn't be the first time. Check for bad connections between the display panel and the power supply and solder joints on the controller board. With everything else operational, a bad microcontroller chip is not that likely but is still a possibility. Good luck
