You are number 3 in the series this AM-
As you probably know, the recommended temperature range is between 35-45 F so if you control will not allow you to set this, the sensor or associated regulator has failed. 

This seems to be a problem with your brand; I'd check to see if there is a recall or factory 'fix' for this. They may have gotten a batch of defective sensors or controllers.

Water not going to ice machine


We had this problem with our ice maker last week. We could get water through the door water dispenser but it stopped making ice.
We had read that the line could be frozen and that was the case.
We have a KitchenAid Superba and the easiest way to thaw it out was to remove the two screws holding the water hose elbow into the back of the freezer (pull the fridge out away from the wall to access it). It will come out with about a 5-6 inch long hard plastic tube which goes through the back freezer wall and joins with an aluminum tube (which may also be plugged with ice) that reaches the ice maker. Looking inside the tube we could see the ice blockage. Heating it up with a hair dryer made the ice plug drop right out. We had tried to thaw it out by heating the tube inside the freezer, but the ice plug was actually in the wall part of the freezer and we wouldn't have been able to thaw it out from the inside (short of shutting the refrigerator off). When the heat was applied...a 3 inch plug of ice dropped out of the tube, and there was even a very small piece of ice blocking the elbow part. We wouldn't have been able to thaw that area out without taking it apart.

Hi olympic,
By the way your descpition reads your fault is due to moisture in the insulation of cabinet. The fix the fault you would have to cut out a section approx 3 x the size of rust area. The insulation inside your cabinet would have to be removed, the reinsulated (special product) the fita new panel for area cut out.. easy fix, either ignor fault or replace fridge... Cheers

HOW DO I DEFROST FREEZER


Hi,

Most modern freezers don't need to be defrosted, but should be washed out and cleaned periodically. Following are steps for defrosting freezers that need it -generally when ice builds up to a thickness between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch.

  1. Step 1 Turn the freezer off. Controls may be inside the refrigerator.
  2. Step 2 Remove all food from the freezer and store in an ice chest while you are defrosting.
  3. Step 3 Remove ice in the freezer compartment. This can be done by: a) letting the freezer door stand open until ice melts; b) putting a pan of hot water in the freezer compartment and closing the door, then checking for melting ice and reheating the water every 10 to 15 minutes; c) using a hair dryer by aiming warm air at ice in freezer until it melts.
  4. Step 4 Pick up ice and water as it melts with a dishcloth or sponge and deposit into sink.
  5. Step 5 Use a sponge or dishcloth and a bowl of warm water to thoroughly wipe out inside of freezer once the freezer is cleared of ice.
  6. Step 6 Turn the freezer back on, close the door and let run for 10 to 15 minutes before returning food to the freezer.
  7. Step 7 Put food back into freezer and close the door.

Bottom Freezer has ice built up


Possibly the defrost element is faulty, this is located behind a cover in the back of the freezer compartment and is attached to the fins of the evaporator. It also has a defrost limit thermostat which could also be the problem. I presume that the fan is working after you have defrosted the unit?

Kenmore - over under


Adjust the feet to raise the front of the frige, which should be higher than the back. Therefore the weight of the door will keep it shut or at least cause it to shut itself if it pops open.
