I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.
All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"

If the repairman is experienced the problem will be resolved. I have recharged refrigerators myself and it is difficult, time consuming ad tedious. Sorry the work needs to be done in your home. If he does not know what he is doing he will cause problems and make excuses for why the refrigerator does not work correctly. Hope you have the best service available for your area. Sea Breeze

That fan behind the refrig , is the fan that cools the compressor . It should be running any time the compressor runs . If not running , replace it . The center divider between the fridge and freezer ( front strip ) should be getting hot to the touch if the fan is not running .

Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets. The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited. Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system: The defrost timer The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch) The defrost heater If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem

SOURCE: oh my we had
Your temperature control board is the problem.It controls the temperature settings in the Refrigerators.Since you say power flickered.This is the obvious cause for the temperature control borad to be defective.Sudden high or low signal to the board will cause the resistors to break of it will make capacitors to be defective.You have to do continuity testing on the board to find out the exact resistors or capacitors or transistors to be replace.
Some time the fuse may also create this problem it is also soldered on the board.
Note:Sometimes switching it off for 8 hours more will solve the problem because if it is defrost issue and system takes time to defrost the Refrigerators.
post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
