Question about KitchenAid (KSRD22FKST) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator is constantly running. Temperature on both freezer and refrige seems to be normal. About a week ago, we pulled everything out of the refrigerator, turned it off for about 5 hours and restarted. For couple of days, everything seems normal with refrigerator turning on and off at normal interval. But now it's constantly running again. Help---

Vegetables in crisper are frozen, as well as liquids in bottom 1/2 of fridge door. The fridge & freezer temp controls won't adjust to our settings. Also, we're getting ice, but no water will dispense.


The freezer cools the refrigerator, so you actually get very cold air passing from the freezer to the refrig. The air from the freezer enters the refrig on the top and falls to the bottom where it is drawn back into the freezer. The temperature of the refrig is regulated by a thermostat and a fan that runs when the thermostat calls for cooling. If the refrig thermostat is faulty and causes the fan to run more than it should, there will be a freezing problem in the refrig at the bottom because cold air falls and warm air rises. If the refrig is thermostat is calling for cooling constantly, this will take more cold air from the freezer than is normal. Your freezer temp might be higher than normal and the refrig will be colder then desired. If the fan from the freezer is running constantly I would suspect a bad refrig thermostat.

Seems to be constantly running. refridgerator section too cold, with items freezing.


it could be 1 of 3 things,1st: the ptc overload on the compressor has welded together and cant cycle on and off/2nd:the cold control is defective,this component is the part you set the units temperature with/3rd:your damper vent door located between the freezer and refrigerator compartments could have frozen open from condensation and cant close to keep the cold out of the refrigerator after the refrige is cool enough,this is behind a plastic grille in the refrigerator and brings in cool air from the freezer

Maytag fridge has constant running water sound


you hear a constant running water sound? look in your manual under "normal operating sounds". it explains all of the sounds. it sounds like you're hearing the refrigerant going thru your evap. coil located behind the rear frzr panel. you unit goes into the defrost cycle roughly every 8hrs and water drip down into the condensate pan un the refrig.

Amana bottom freezer refrig runs at maximum coolness


Thanks for your inquiry. I think I may have fixed it. I unpluged it and took everything out of the refrigerator and freezer, cleaned it thoroughly inside and out and unscrewed the back wall inside the freezer. There was a huge ice buildup on the coils so I let it sit for 12 hours like a defrost. I turned it back on and it seems to be working fine. It is not running constantly and is maintaining about 5 degrees below. If this doesn't stay working, I guess I have to call a repairman.
