Question about KitchenAid Architect Series II 29.7 Cu. Ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator - Stainless-Steel

Open Question

We have a kitchen aid model KS SS 48QMW01- serial number QR4543044. The unit wasnt cooling well last night but we had just put a lot of groceries in it. By morning, the food was cool, but not cold. I put a thermometer in and it was about 47 degrees on max cool. I took the top plate off, vacuumed all the coils and the fan. I then took the service papers attached to the unit on top and took the area called " service diagnostic mode" steps 1-7 and set the display by the instructions. Mode 1 and 2 showed a "1", when I switched to mode 3, the display just started to beep quietly, two beeps every 3 seconds or so and will not stop blinking or respond to resetting- even unplugging, replugging etc. We live in a coastal area on the west coast and the weather has been cool. PLease help

three things to check out.
1)the fan wiring's are they getting cut in between or burnt or short.
2)if the wires are proper ,then its faulty fan motor the Fan needs replacement.
3) if the compressor relay is faulty then also fan will not work.the relay is located beside the fan and compressor.

Fridge section not cooling and fan is not running.The fan should actually run, then only fridge section will get cold. ----------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.--------- But if fan is not starting to run, then how will cold air from freezer will get to the fridge section.They will just remain in freezer section and freezer will get bit more cool then required.--------- ------------ In some cases its seen, that freezer section gets over frosted and ice gets collected on the freezer fan too.And this causes problem.--------------

So first thing you try is , perform, manual defrost reset procedure.---------

The manual defrost reset procedure is as follows : ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. Then check, if still the fan is not starting to run in few hours then fan motor needs to be replaced.Its easy replacement.--------- Then see if the fridge section is getting cold or not.If still the fridge section is not getting cold with freezer fan running, then problem is defrost board.It has to be replaced.------- You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.

----------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

Kitchen aid ksss42 not cooling fan runs


Hi,

With this particle number you gave there are over 40 different models. So I seek a better model number or a complete number to assist you better. Some models had a inverter to control the compressor and I have seen failure due to heat or surges. But without a model number to verify I can't and won't direct you on a fish hunt without the correct information. Get back to me with more information please.
