KitenAid KSRX25F -- HOT FRONT FRAME

I have a Kitchenaid KSRX25F refrigerator. The freezer portion works fine but the fridge side recently quit working. I unplugged it then plugged it back in and it is working again but there is one thing that rally concerns me. There is a divider between the freezer side and the fridge side. The front of this divider, where the doors essentually meet, is extremely hot. It has been like this for a while, over a year, but in the last two weeks it has gotten much hotter. Any clue how to fix this???

I have a KSCS25INWH. I had the same problem- that is door frame very hot because the cooling fan was not running in conjunction with the compressor. My frig is only 6 years old. Trouble shooting was tough because the fan worked intermittantly. Anyway, I replaced the fan motor, replaced the inverter box, and replaced the control board. None of these fixed the problem ($425). Don't try to get help from KitchenAid/ Maytag. There is no one to talk to or email for help. I even asked, "What if a technician needs help? Who do they call?" I was told, "They have a special number. We don't give that out to customers." Now I've disconected the harness from the control box, then blew air into the connection terminals to get rid of any dust, and reconnected. So far it seems to be working. On my frig this box is up against the far left wall and not attached to the base unit. ...hope this helps somebody...

I had the same problem. I had just brush cleaned my coils and then it began. When I took the back off the fridge, I saw the fan was not spinning. I unplugged the fridge and then tried to spin the fan blades. I had inadvertantly bent a blade so it would not spin. I bent the blade back into shape and turned it on. The fan worked and very quickly the middle was no longer hot.

Hi Mr Hodjati,

No this is not normal. You have a failure of air flow in your condenser. I will explain how to repair if you wish to make the repair youself. If this is not addressed you will soon realize a reduction in cooling and a higher use of energy.

There is a fan that pulls air in from the lower right side front of the refrigerator grille located below the fresh food door, and exhausts the air on the left side of this same grille. Remove this grill and clean the coils with a vacume cleaner and a brush. Pull the refrigerator out so you can get behind the unit. Unplug the power cord from the wall. Next remove the screws from the panel behind the refrigerator near the bottom, the panel may look like a piece of cardboard, but it is a critical component. Once this panel is removed you will see the fan motor and fan blade, make sure nothing like a food wrapper or animal is stuck in the fan causing it to be stuck. If it turns free by hand (it will be real hot down there so be careful), then the motor needs replaced. If you send me the model number I can find you the replacement part number. Let me know if this helps.

IN MOST CASES THERE IS A FAN THAT SENDS COLD AIR FROM THE FREEZER TO KEEP THE FRIDGE COLD. EITHER YOUR FAN MOTOR HAS GONE BAD OR YOUR THERMOSTAT IN YOUR FRIDGE IS BAD.

Kitchenaid fridge #KSCS25INSS hot door frame


There are heaters located inside the door frame, to prevent your doors from freezing shut, and also to prevent condensation on the outside of the appliance. It sounds to me as though that is where your problem is... Hope this helps
