Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frige is not cooling

The bottom fan is turning, air is blowing around on the inside of the frige, but the compressor is not turning on. The compressor is not warm to the touch. The coils are clean and the lights come on, water dispenses etc.. I'm guessing it is the adaptive defrost board or the thermostat? I guess i can replace both but would nice to test the parts beforehand... any other part you make think is the problem? Thanks for any help you can provide!!!

Re: Frige is not cooling

Check the power start relay. This is what turns on the compressor. I had same problem ( one of many) and the power start relay was bad.

Was dripping inside frige,leaking from front bottom, is running.Frige not cooling for a few days. Now the freezer has stopped cooling

Is your compressor running. Check that and if it bis not then you probably just have a bad start device (relay/overload)

Frige not cooling on bottom freezer frige

Check the air vents, from the freezer to fridge. Air travels through those vents. Sometimes, products get shoved under the vents, preventing air flow. It sounds like, the vents are clogged with something. I guess, the fan is working inside, of the freezer? Ice in the bottom, of the freezer pan, could be clogging the vents. You'll have to dig deeper. Good luck.

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all

If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

Kscs251 not cooling

Most likely your defrost element(s) are burned out and the evaporator coil is frozen over.

Compressor fan is barely moving

may need to have your frige recharged or neeed a new fan. does the fan sqeal when it turns? if so the bearings are going out. if it doesnt and your frige isnt staying cool then the fan motor may need to b replaced or the frige might need recharging. if it runs just fine and no noise i wouldnt worry about it

I have a model ARB2257CSR Amana frige (freezer on bottom) and the freezer is not working I think. there is a sound that comes on and off like the motor maybe is trying to come on... the sound comes from...

Sounds like the overload/relay is going out . If the noise is a " click " , replace the o/relay after checking the 3 terminals on compressor for continuity and each terminal to ground ( copper tubing ) .

Bottom Freezer working but not side!

Typically the freezer air is circulated into the frige area to provide cooling. If the circ. fan is not working or the air ducts/channels/dampers are blocked with ice, food, etc. then no cool air will get from the freezer to the frige area. Check all the air channels and to see if the dampers are open along with the circulation fan running. The diagrams at the following link should help you see inside better. If your lower circulation fan is running then you likely have an air return/supply channel blocked with ice and will require an old style defrost (unplug unit and leave doors open for 24 hours to melt ice, etc.). If the fan isn't running then that needs to be replaced. Air channels can freeze up if a door is left open slightly overnight or other moisture enters the freezer/frige.
