Question about KitchenAid KSSC48QMS Side by Side Refrigerator

KitchenAid refrigerator model KSSC48QMS00, evaporator fan runs 24

KitchenAid refrigerator model KSSC48QMS00. The evaporator fan runs 24/7. It did not do this for the past several years. The unit is in the kitchen in a fully air conditioned house. The unit makes ice fine and maintains the freezer at 0 degrees and the frig at 36 degrees as it has always done. No problems other than fan. Thoughts?

    No the compressor is not running all the time. Do you know where the relay is located. I looked for it on the parts diagram/list for this unit on the Kitchen Aid web site but could not locate a stand alone relay.

    Thanks, sadly the control board was my option as I looked at the parts diagram. Later I found out it is a $280 item. Do you know where I can locate a wiring diagram for this unit? Kitchen Aid will not provide one.

    I appologize for intruding on projdoc solution , but your refrig has no relay . It used an inverter box , which is wired to the compressor . As far as the fan running 24/7 , I would advise looking more towards the control board . Again , I appologize .

We moved our Kitchenaid refrigerator down the steps to the basement using a dolly and now its running constantly.

I can't think of any reason moving it would cause that problem. How are your door seals? Are both fans(evaporator fan in freezer and condenser fan at compressor)working? Did you give it 24 hours for temps to stabilize?

I have a KitchenAid side by side refrigerator, model KSSC48QKS01 and the call service light is on and it is beeping every several minutes. Is there a common problem associated with this?

Correct me im mistaking but is that a buildin kitchenaid. If it is there is a service flash for evaporator fan motor. If you already changed the main board then the only other thing that can cause that is that service flash is a kit evaporator fan and the Bimetal. I would suggest to call kitchenaid and get the part number unfortunately I dont have it handy. But most likely thats the problem.

Condenser fan problem on Kitchenaide Refrigerator - kscs23inss01

What you are going to find is this... Your COILS under the Plastic are Condensating and FREEZING and then this is what is causing the On /Off of the Temp. You have to DEFROST the COILS (Under the Plastic) and remove ALL the ice and Moisture. Once you get this problem resolved, it will work perfectly. This problem was caused by the Condenser Coils being Dirty and and the Switch on Top, Under the Plastic from being unable to work properly. This is a time consuming issue but easy to do. DO NOT SCRAP or BREAK the ICE after you take the Plastic off, use a hair dryer or Hot Water and make sure the Drain Tube is completely cleaned...

Frig leaking from the bottom, a slow leak.

Most likely defrost water not evaporating and running over drip pan onto lloor.

Check the bottom coils... Dirty coils can block air flow and prevent defrost water evaporation. Also check fan. Air pulled across defrost water evaporates it. If fan is not running, refrigerator will also be inefficient, as refrigerant condenser needs air flow over the coils to work properly.

Kitchenaid Bottom mount refridgerator is has stopped cooling but freezer is maintaining correct temperature$FILE/FDBMREFRIG.pdf
We replaced the evaporator motor. Use an Ohmmeter to see if electricity is going there, first, see if fan is running, then, if not, replace evaporator motor-part # 12002744.

Fridge is now running! I'll post again, if there is any more to the story. We are now waiting to see if it gets to temp, but it is running. I'd love to find info on a reset code.

Kitchenaid Refrigerator/Freezer Freezer is

Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: defrost stat heaters evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck & thanks for using fixya! Mike p.s. please don't forget to rate this free solution.

Ice dispenser does not work in the door of my kitchenaid side by side refrigerator model no KSRS25ILBL00

I had the same issue; take out the ice bin, empty it and set it to dry overnight/24 hrs. There are tiny bits of water frozen in the gears, once they thaw and evaporate, voila, ice through the door again
