Question about KitchenAid KSSC42QM Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a KitchenAid KSSC42QMS. When I open the right door of the fridge, none of the lights are coming on (displays as well as the light bulb). The lights on the freezer (left side) are working fine. I turned the power off and then back on - the display lights came on for a few seconds.
I am inclined to think that the fridge is unable to detect that the right door has been opened. Where is the door open sensor located and how can it be fixed?

depending on age of unit, the problem may lie in the light bulb,well the door closing anyway, the newer unit s actuall will shut down all interior lights, in the evnet that teh door is left open for more then 2-3 min, so its possible that a light switch is not being activated so the uit thinks the door is open and has shut down the rest of lights, cooling however does continue normally.

sounds like fridge fan is out,sometimes they stick and do not send cold air to otherside,replace or repair.

Replace the icemaker . The laser receiver (on right side ) is supposed to blink twice then pause then twice repeatedly .Normal. Also clean the coils under fridge .

I had turned the water feed off on our Kitchen Aide Frig for several days while repairing another appliance in the kitchen and then discovered the aqua sense ice maker stopped working because it wasn't getting any water fed in, even after pressure was restored to the water line...appreciate your heads up as to the possibility of a frozen water feed...you helped me identify the problem
Nothing in the manual on this possibility, but without disconnecting power to the frig, I cleared off the top shelf in the freezer and warmed the area with a hair dryer..on our large side by side, it appears that the water is fed to our ice maker from the top of the frig on the right side...I warmed the area for three 5 minute periods...about 10 - 15 minutes apart...I noticed water starting to leak into the tray (I assume from the melting) and carefully sponged it out so I could gauge the success of the melting...
I am not sure if it made a difference, but half way thru the process I also powered the machine off (from the controls on the refrig side) as I wasn't sure if a reset cycle was necessary....about an hour later, the machine self feeder filled up the tray and it is once again making ice...
I would caution going slowly with the heat and concentrated hair dryer so as not to damage any of the plastic...other than that, this was pretty easy..
