Question about KitchenAid KSCS25FKSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a KitchenAid side-by-side stainless steel refrigerator. (Model KSSC48QKS00). The temperature of the feezer stays around 25F even though I set to 5F. I powered it off, and powered it back on after a few minutes. I waited 24 hrs, but have the same problem. The fridge seems to be working fine.

    Thanks for the suggestions. We cleaned the condender coils, which wasn't bad. It didn't help. We had to call for services, and ended up paying $1500 of labor to replace the consendor :-( At least, the part is still under warranty.

My first question would be to ask if it is running all the time or not...if it is turning on and off then you have a thermostat sensor problem.
However my quess would be that it is running contiuously and just can't make it cold enough to turn it off.
The reasons for this could be that the condenser is pugged with dirt and dust so the the heat is not removed. Usually this is under the fridge and a little fan blows air across it.
The other reason could be that you have a very slow freon leak and the charge is not enough to make your freezer cold as you want it. I would blow out the condenser coil frist and then have someone check the charge if that does not work.

    They replaced the compressor or the condenser???

    It's great that you got it covered under warranty though!!

    Wow, 1500.00!! I could buy a pretty nice new fridge for that!!

    Glad that it all worked out for you anyway, something must not ahev been right from the get go on that unit.

    I do hope though that there is not a slow leak in there somewhere...

    Good Luck!!

If my Kitchen Aid KSF26C6XYY00 door is in fact made of stainless steel, why do fridge magnets stick to it? Ohter people I know that have stainless steel fridges say that the magnets do not stick to t

Stainless steel is a term for a family of high chromium steels, some of which do in fact stain, although they do not rust as ordinary steel does.

The more expensive 'austenitic' stainless is non-magnetic, but harder to work into product shapes. 'Martensitic' stainless is a little more prone to staining and corrosion, but easier to work with, and is magnetic. Then 'ferritic' stainless is even cheaper, but less corrosion proof, and is also magnetic.

So yes, many stainless steels are magnetic, and if the manufacturer has not used the very most corrosion proof but expensive grade, then you will see it in that way. I would not see much reason for a fridge door to be made from austenitic stainless.

Checkthe freezer temperature. The proper freezer temperature should be around 5degrees. The warmer it is in the freezer, the more difficult it is to make ice.
