Model KSSS42A runs most of the time. What causes this and what should be replaced? Freezer and fridge stays cold even on lowest setting

    Actually it is a KitchenAid model KSSS42A. I mistakenly wrote Kenmore. The thermostats for both freezer and fridge are set to lowest point. Everything stays cold or frozen but the motor or compressor runs 75% of the time.

Can you give me a bit more detail on your problem, it runs most of the time? What about the other times? It just shuts off completely? No lights, no cooling, no nothing? How long do these periods last? How long has it been doing this? How old is the unit?

Thanks
Tim

Hi

You might try pulling it out from the wall, taking off the cover on the back at the bottom and cleaning it out. Take a look under the fridge and at the back to see if the coils underneath are dirty.If that doesn't fix it, check your thermostat in the freezer section. Turn it down a bit. If that's still not it, you may need to call a repairperson.

Please accept the solution if it’s helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Everything on top shelf of fridge freezes even on lowest temperature


you should send model number,if you have a damper control in your model most likely this is the problem,all that happens is cold air blows over from the freezer from the evaporator fan and blows through the top section of the fridge side,if the damper door isn't closing all the way it will cause freezing in the fridge section.

Why do freezer coils ice up on my Stainless Steel Whirlpool refrigerator (model GB2SHDXTS)?


On your model your cntrl board has a relay that can stick causing the compressor to always run even when the unit is turned off or in defrost. turn the fridge off, move the temp of the freezer to it's warmest setting and it should display a line in the freezer and fridge temp display. listen to hear if the compressor is running in back of the unit. if it is you need part number: 12868513

The only thing a home owner can do to fix this is to make sure ALL the coils under and behind you fridge are clean. If that dose not work I would very strongly suggest calling a repairmen before you attempt to fix.

Temperature too cold even when on lowest


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer


Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep
