Is this suppose to blow cool air? I know the temp control on the front inside panel is working because you can here something shut down in the back of refrigerator. please help ! We would like to try and save cost and repair ourselves if possible. Janet H.

please check the air flow to the refrigerator side. it could be a stuck damper motor or damper thermostat. if the fan inside the freezer is running, you should be able to feel cold air coming out off the vents in the refrigerator side. you might have to press the button light switch on the panels to run the fan.

I had a similar problem where the refrigerator side was not cooling well but I could feel very little air coming through the vent in the top left corner.I blew hot air from a blow driver into the vent for about 1 minute which melted ice that was hanging from the bottom of the vent cover.Cold air started blowing harder thru the vent and cured the problem.

SOURCE: location of refrigerator water filter

The filter should be a canister somewhere in the line from your sink to the refrigerator. If there is no canister visib;le there then obviously they never installed a filter in the first place. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Side-by-side (ksrg25fkwh05) - Freezer not working

The odds are it is a circuit board problem...I had a huge Amana 27 cubic foot side by side and it did the same thing...I diagnosed the problem and replaced the circuit board ....which actually controls everything...one sure sign is to pull the unit out as the other person did and to access the back of the unit where the compressor is...(the comptressor should be on 85% of the tme....if it is not on and warm or hot to the touch then it is a circuit board problem....since compressors will continue to run if there is a defrost problem (most of them anyway), or an Ice build up, etc etc. I don't recommend a layperson trying to replace the circuit board (mine cost $115,) but if you do it is generally in the door mine was a long thin circuit board behind the fridge door handle. .P.S. the heat that the other person felt on the door and around the door seals is normal lots of people don't even know this heat strips exist until something haappens and they start feeling around...these heat strips are to prevent frost of ice build up where the door meets the fridge framd...which can happen due to the extreme temp difference between the two...(inside temp and outside temp).

I hope this has helped...good luck...Knowledge gives you a base from which to yield power over unscrupulous repairmen whop may try to take advantage of people.
Again ...good luck and let me know what happens.....Please rate me .....The Fang.

My refrigerator isn't cooling well. The freezer isn't freezing at the top only the bottom.


if it's just cold at the bottom and warm up top it sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor in the freezer side,when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing?if not bad fan motor,this happens when the fan motor is bad because heat rises and cold air sinks.part number : 2259385 and it's around 60 to 70 dollars

We have a Kitchenaid superba side by side. The freezer is working fine, but the refrigerator isn't cold. I have vacuumed the coils at the top of the model, but didn't solve the problem. I can...


The cooling normally comes from the freezer side, through cooling tubes. There should be a fan either blowing or sucking the air through these cooling tubes. So the first thing you should do is verify that the evaporator fan is turning and then see if you feel air flow in both compartments. If you have air flow in the freezer but not the refrigerator side, then the cooling tube must be blocked.

Most of the time the blockage is ice or frost, and you will need to open up the inner back panel of the freezer to get to the cooling tube. Look for an opening under the evaporator. Suggest a hair dryer to defrost the tube.

Kitchenaid KSRA25IL Freezer working Fine - Refrigerator not


many times when a unit has a defrost problem the coils freeze up and do not allow the fresh food side to cool properly...check for a build up of ice on the inside back wall of the freezer compartment. if there is a build up of ice, you have a defrost problem. Also, check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is blowing the air into the fresh food side.

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling


we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone
