Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
There is frost under the ice making machine because its thermostat is set too high. There rate at which frost will form is going to increase because of the high thermostat.
Turn off the appliance and allow all the frost to melt. Then reset the thermostat and resume normal usage. Be sure not to use any utensils or tools to scrape off the frost, as it is very easy to puncture the evaporator and ruin the freezer.
Also, its normal for a ice making machine to form frost, but when the frost gets too much, then it means the defrost time of the Machine maybe defective.

When the freezer section gets cold and reaches
its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section
starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool
air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over
ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the
air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge
section does not cool.Its defrost problem. Try
manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet
for 4 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,.
If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of
fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from
online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.
