KitchenAid Superba. Freezer gets frost all over

KitchenAid Superba. Freezer gets frost all over the inside then eventually stopps freezing and causes the fridge side to stop cooling also. If I turn it off and let all the frost melt then turn it back on it works fine for about 5 days then does it again. Any idea what could be causing this and how to fix it?

If it is supposed to be a frost free, then either the defrost element has failed or the timer for same has . I would suggest you call a repair service tech.

You have done a good job of attempting to diagnose by process of elimination, but this is a more complex system. I have provided some links below to assist you in diagnosing your problem. Links courtesy of www.repairclinic.com.

1. Ascertain that the evaporator fan is operational. This may be controlled by the Door Switch, (No.4) and could cause the fan to be inoperable.
2. Ascertain that the Fresh Food compartment light goes off when door is closed.
3. The air diffuser may be faulty by not controlling the air flow from the freezer properly

Tip: Always maintain dual temperature control settings at equal or +/- 1 setting position.

How refrigerators work:

You will need to verify operation of the following components listed below:

1. Evaporator fan motor
2. Air diffuser assembly
3. Light switch for refrigerator/freezer light
4. Door switch

Kitchenaid superba side by side top is too warm,


The defrost cycle is suppose to be automatic on this model. To see if you have a defrost problem take the lower container out of the freezer, and empty the bottom shelves enough to see the back panel inside the freezer. If there is a build up of frost on the panel or the slots in the lower back panel the automatic defrost is not functioning. The most likely suspect is the ADC or automatic defrost control. This control runs about $120.00 and is located in the console of the fresh food section (top).

If there is no frost check to see if the fan in the freezer is running. If the fan is not running you have a failure of the fan motor which is a little less expensive but a bit more challenging to replace, the shelves, the shelf slides and back panel of the freezer have to come out to replace this motor.

We have a superba fridge/freezer. the problem is


A model number is necessary to correctly help you with this problem.

The usual cause of the problem is the ice door not fully closing allowing warm, humid air to rise into the freezer. This will cause cubes to fuse together causing a large jam inside the dispenser. There is a kit available which contains all the parts necessary to correct the problem. The kit does not fit all models so the model number is necessary.

Replacing some of these parts can be quite a challenge for non-technicians although the kit comes with instructions.

No Fan could cause that. if that is running now check the back wall of the freezer is there frost building up on it if there is then your unit is not defrosting and that could also cause that let me know what you find and I can help from there.

Freezer freezing up


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Warm freezer


seems to me that the freezer control motor is not pushing the freezing gas around cooling the unit. Suggest an engineer.
