HI. your unit is equipped with a defrost thermostat that is wired directly to the control board/PCb, and linked to the defrost element as well. this thermostat has failed, in return, not allowing the proper transfer of correct temp readings that the control uses to calculate the proper defrost cycle.

Replacing the defrost thermostat(Bi Metal) will fix this issue.

My Kitchen Aid Superba refrigerator Model # KSRS25FGWH01 stopped working. no fans come on no noise only fridge lights. working the other day but fridge was not cold enough freezer was fine now nothing

The machine goes into the defrost mode every day or two. During defrost mode you will see these symptoms. After an hour or two, it should return to normal. If not, the defrost timer may be stuck in the defrost position.

Might be a defrost problem. or maybe a damper or bad fan motor. Look in the freezer for signs of frost on the back wall. If you see it then that means the frig is not defrosting. Unplug the unit for a few days and if it goes back to normal operation that will confirm a defrost problem.

Kitchen Aid Refer: KSSC42FMS01: The freezer, doesn't go below 32

How long have you had this refrigerator and is this the first time this has happened? Your refrigerator has a control board and I believe the board is causing the refrigerator not to defrost every 8 hours. Let me know these questions and I will help you resolve this. Thanks, Sea Breeze
