My Kitchen Aid Superba refrigerator Model # KSRS25FGWH01 stopped working. no fans come on no noise only fridge lights. working the other day but fridge was not cold enough freezer was fine now nothing


The machine goes into the defrost mode every day or two. During defrost mode you will see these symptoms. After an hour or two, it should return to normal. If not, the defrost timer may be stuck in the defrost position.

Possible problem with ice build up and fridge doesnt get cold enough to store food. Freezer works fine.


The noise is due to the ice build up in your evaporator. The evaporator fan blade is rubbing against the ice build up. This can is designed to turn off when you open the door. As far as the defrost problem it can be your defrost bimetal thermostat, the defrost timer/control or your defrost heater.

Our two door samsung has making noise from the motor and when you open the door it will stop. jackie.brincat@bigpond.com


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The noise that stops when you open the door is the evaporator fan. If it sounds like blades striking something there is most likely too much ice in the evaporator coils and the fan blades are striking the built up ice. If it sounds like a vibration it can be bad bearings inthe evaporatof fan motor.

Ice build up is usually a sign of an automatic defrost circuit problem. The unit should defrost close to 3 times a day depending on the defrost control installed. What you should do is do a manual defrost session by unplugging the unit, removing the freezer contents and directing a fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. This will ensure that all of the evaporator coil ice has melted. (Yes it makes a water mess) Tidy things up and return the unit to normal service after your manual defrost session. NOTE: If you have an automatic defrosting problem the fan noise can repeat in as little as 2 days as the ice once again builds up on the evaporator coils.

DO the manual defrost, LISTEN for noise after 24 - 48 hours. No noise... no worries, NOISE after 24 - 48 hours = Defrost problem. Causes of a defrost problem can be the defrost control, defrost heating element, the defrost thermostat or a wiring problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Fridge stops working and warms up for half a day then will cool back off and start working for a day or a few days. When it warms up everything in the freezer defrosts but will then refreeze a day later...


Check your defrost thermostat in your freezer access panel. Your defrost timer could be faulty, Your defrost timers ussually run for 12 hours and defrost runs for 30 minutes. That being said that is why I believe your timer is getting stuck on run and then eventually it finally gets unstuck and goes into defrost. Eventually it will get stuck in one place or another.

ED5NHGXMQ00 stopped working overnight. Ice maker


Clicking could be a bad starter relay if the noise is coming from the back under the unit where the compressor is. check it here Check your compressor relay- http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/compressorrelay.php
The clicking could be coming from a fan, one of which is near the compressor under the unit and another is in the freezer behind the rear cover inside.
The defrost timer could be clicking. This sound would come from the fridge.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.
You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

The freezer appears to be thawing even when shut all day.

Roper stopped working


Your defrost timer is bad. The defrost timer motor probably quit in defrost mode, thus no power to the compresser
