Question about KitchenAid KSRD22FKBT / KSRD22FKWH / KSRD22FKBL Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator/freezer. Both stopped working at
same time. My husband took back off and said it was full of dust since,
he had not performed the cleaning in some time. I notice the floor was
sticky and had a slight orange/red tone on it in two different areas about
8 inches apart. Do you have any idea of what the problem is. I need an answer like yesterday.
the sizzling noise is water hitting the defrost elememt and this is normal - shows the defrost system is working. if water comes on the floor of the freezer, this may be the drain for the defrost water is blocked. remove the freexer back panel and the drain is in the tray where the defrost water is caught. if it is blocked - usually with ice - clear it with hot water and make sure the water drains freely. takes some patience and maybe several attempts

I too have a Kenmore, Model 106.52209100. No cooling at all in freezer and refrigeration sections. Lights and control panel status lights working. Motor running but only warm air. Issue was a relay that needed replacement. $71 for the relay, $180 fo the repairman.

I have a side by side kitchen aide Model # KSRA25FKBL00. The freezer was leaking, we keep finding water on the floor and when you opened the freezer the floor of the freezer was covered with ice. I tried finding a solution online but they all seemed to involve removing parts and I wasn’t conformable doing that. I just had a repair man here.
I spent $125 to have it fixed. It took him less than 5 mins. What he did was chipped the ice away. He took a plastic bottle with a small plastic hose coming out of it, filled with hot water and poured it down the defrost drain at the bottom of the freezer. I don’t think you really would need the tube. There is a defrost drain at the bottom of my freezer that drains into a pan under the fridge. The repair man said it defrosts every 8 hours and drains and sometimes it gets clogged.
I hope someone can save some money with this tip; it was such an easy fix. He tried to block what he was doing, but I stood over his shoulder watching.

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa
