Question about KitchenAid KSRS25IL Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

KSRS25ILWH83, Kitchenaid manufacturered 10/03. Is hs been making clicking sounds for about 5 days. They are not constant and may be many hours apart. When they happen they click, click again and then click a short time after that. Seems like a fan is running before even happens. Seems ilke the compressor is working fine. Would this be something to do with the defrost cycle? I'm not able to find a manual on your site. Is there a diagnositics chart which one could use to determine the problem? Saw one for a different model. Right now I'm not able to detect any cooling issues. The unit is less than six years old. Freezer is full, so I hope it doesn't go out on me. Apparently they don't build them like they used to. Any help would be appreciated. Did pull off the bottom grill and cleaned out the front of the coils. Wish there was a way to area behind them.

After a few hours my Aprilaire 400 makes a constant clicking sound that won't stop. Is it the solenoid?


This is either the solenoid or a loose low voltage wire. Make sure all the wiring connections are tight, if they are the solenoid if bad and will need to be replaced.

Old kitchenaid mixer makes clicking noise and hook doesn't turn


It sounds like the worm gear has failed. This usually happens when the mixer is overloaded. You will need to take the head apart and check the gears.

Why suction line would ice back


Good day,
Unusual question.
Lots of reasons. You didn't say if it was cooling or cycling off and on.
1. Evaporator fan motor in freezer compartment not running. Doesn't allow the refrigerant to boil off and returns as a liquid.
2. Evaporator coil badly frosted allowing no air flow thru it. Same as #1
3. Runs constantly (days). no demand on system, and once again will not boil off before leaving evaporator.
4. Overcharged. Floods back excess charge.
5. Heat exchanger came apart. The capillary tube is soldered to the suction line to transfer heat from the cap tube to the suction line. Necessary on a refrigerator. Common problem.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using fixYa

Sounds like the defrost timer is not working. There is an approx. 1/2 inch white round shaft with a hole in the middle somewhere either inside the refr. section or on the front bottom frame. If you stick a screwdriver in it and turn it clockwise until it clicks, the compressor will shut off and go into defrost. If it doesn't come on after about an hour, then turn it until it starts. Mark it to see if it turns. It should do one rotation either every day or twice a day. If it's not turning you need a new timer. Cheap and easy.
