Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Our Superba side by side has stopped cooling on both sides. We've cleaned the coils at the bottom of the fridge from the front panel. There continues to be a clicking sound, but the interior is not getting colder.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

Unable to sufficiently cool freezer as of couple days ago; temp higher than freezing point. The metal frame running between fridge and freezer is burning HOT to the touch; so hot that the rubber door...


check the coil to see if it needs to be cleaned and pull out the machine,if it's getting that hot the condenser fan motor could be dead.pull it out and remove the bottom panel in the back and make sure the fan is blowing and clean the condenser coil.the fan motr part number is W10124096 and it's around 85 to 90 dollars.if the fan isn't running you can stick any fan back there to cool down the compressor and get the fan motor as soon as possible,i've found mice stuck in the fan going for water in the pan or papers,if something is jammed in the blade hopefully when you pull it out it will still run but i think this is your problem,good luck.one more thing the model number you sent isn't the full number,you're missing a number on the end the model i looked up ended in 1 but the fan should be the same,you can open the fridge door,look up near the ceiling on the right hand wall and you should see the model number,if it's not there,look down near the bottom hindge on the fridge door,you might have to remove the bottom kickplate to see it,give the number to your parts store and they will sell you the correct part.

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok


Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

My freezer temp registers 28 - 36, I cleaned out coils, I notice that there is a fan in the back bottom right side, not sure what should make that run. My Ice is slowly melting. I had the freezer setting...


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 .

Access to clean coils on kscs25inss00


You need to get a bottle brush they are about 18" long maybe longer and made for getting into these area's to clean the coils. My frig is set up the same way and hate it. Cause when they are that dirty cause's so many things to happen all bad. I have used my air compressor to blow them clean and then chase little dust bunnies around the kitchen. I have been thinking about this same problem for awhile now and bottle brush is the best option for now that I have heard of. ken

Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator


First thing I would check...is this unit frosting up? Turn it off for two days...with the doors open...to defrost completely. Clean out the condenser coils with a brush. Inspect and clean any gaskets not sealing. When restarting...open up the back panel and check the compressor. It is that big black thing. Find and clean off the largest pipe. Watch the pipe...It will frost initially on startup. Does the frost remain after 5 minutes or turn to ice, water or dry out? If still frosty, you are low on gas. If other conditions, then you either are opening the door too often, those gaskets are damaged or you have defrost issues.
