Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
The freezer led temp indicator is showing -35, the food is rock hard. I have changed the temperature sensor and the problem still exists.
Question is :- Could the pot for the temp dial be duff,
Could the what looks like a capacitor that is mounted at rear left botoom near pump be defective.
I've just fixed this problem with a Miele 7132S. It was a capacitor on the electronic circuit board. A very simple job to replace and cost about £2. I got the solution from another poster wonkothesane on diynot.
Note that the electronics is connected directly to the mains supply so remove the plug from the wall before you start!
The module is simple to remove: open the freezer door and under the module are three slots with catches - just push each in turn with a small screwdriver and pull the module gently forwards.
The power supply uses a 0.47uF 275V Class X2 capacitor which had gone low value so there was insufficient voltage to operate the relay. The compressor is connected to the normally closed relay contact so the freezer runs all the time.
For safety reasons it is critical that you only replace this capacitor with exactly the same specification component as you remove!
While I had the thing apart I also replaced two electrolytic capacitors in the power supply, a 100uF 50V and a 470uF 10V.
