Question about KitchenAid KSSP42QMS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

On Kitchenaid side by side there is a panel down the back that is removable. Inside it are copper lines and a foam covered line. The foam covered line has rusted through the back of the panel where it turns back and goes into the frig.Is that foam wrap to catch condensation? How can this be repaired?

It's there to keep the lines from sweating or without the model # to insulate the area from any heat going thru.

SOURCE: No Ice & no chilled water from frig.

First off does this model have a water filter if so...and if it is old and or full of filtered material the water will not dispense anywhere.

Ok...the way to test for power is obviously with meter you can easily check the solenoid leading to the inside of the frig by exposing where the connectors attach to the solenoid...but do not remove them completely you should have a continual 110/120 v supply...someone at the front of the unit can depress the dispenser and you will hear the solenoid activate...if it does not...the same should apply for the ice maker solenoid...unless it is activated by the timer (electrically) and not mechanically (which it usually is) if you are getting voltage to both of these....and you have voltage to the primary solenoid...(which you may not) if you do not have a filter...and both of the other valves stopped working at the same time..(which would be rare). Then there may be an electrical problem in general. Also you can check to see if the firdge is cold enough to make ice by manually filling the Ice maker with water...it should freeze in under 4 hours and dump the ice also...if it does...them it lies in an electrical problem in general or electrical problem to the primary solenoid. Also do you have hard water....as it may be posible for calcium deposits to accumulate at the valve inlets...and often there are tiny screens in place here also. Check for water continuity at the valves if possible.

I hope this helps....good luck and get back to me and we can go from what you find out.....please rate me.... the Fang

Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: I know this sounds really stupid, but I think that

The water line would run up the back of the fridge.

I don't know that the line could freeze, but I'm no pro. I just wouldn't think that would be possible.

Has the fridge been moved lately? Maybe the water line got pinched? Try checking where the water line runs, maybe it got pinched somewhere else (under counters/sink, etc).

Good luck!

SOURCE: Kitchenaid side by side frig (KSCS25IN) will not dispense cubes

Check the drive gear for the agitator, It might have gotten stuck on ice too many times and stripped the gear. Good luck!

Veritcal yellow line on 50" sceptre tv


The edge ribbon connector may not be connecting (on the inside of the tv). Cure is foam strips between screen edge connecters and inside cover. Or, Memory chip (used to make the picture appear), may be bad. All flat panel tv's use a memory chip to make picture appear (it is digital after all). And if memory chips are bad, picture will have lines, jags etc. But it sounds like you have edge connecter problems. Place foam between inside cover and screen. TV may have been thrown around in shipment, and edge connecters came undone. They're very lightly soldered on some sets.

Took the top cover off upon removing the float a copper clip fell out, where does it go?


The copper clip is call grounding strip.
It clip on the edge of the cover.
The purpose is to keep the unit static discharge to pass from the front panel to the main metal unit so the user will not get a static discharge.
If you inspect the back side of the cover you will see a CLEAN SPOT. (tan line)
Please the copper strip on the exact same spot and snap the cover back on.

I can't find the rear ac expansion valve on my 95 chevy suburban?


Remove two trim panels from just inside back window and just inside rear side door passenger side. They run down from the head liner. Remove seat belt bolt ( TORX HEAD ) also. Remove lower half of trim from just inside rear side door. You should see screws holding weel cover in place. The top under glass just lifts up slightly to remove entire cover. Just a few more screws and you can hinge the top cover of the duct and fan. You will now see the top half of the rear condenser and if you look down beside it you will see the expansion valve. This about as close as you will get to changing the valve though because the freon lines running to the condenser will be stuck so solidly you would have to destroy the lines on either side of the nut to seperate them. You cannot reach the valve without lifting the condenser from its tray and you cannot lift the condenser without removing the lines from it!!! Good luck!!!

Water leak at filter


I had this with a Kitchenaid Superba and wanted to get rid of the filter holder assembly entirely as I have an undersink unit which serves the fridge. I removed the plastic line (nut) at the back of the fridge (which led to the filter holder at the front) where the flexible copper tubing inserted (this was a 3/8' compression fitting-plastic) and also the returning line (1/4" copper compression nut on a plastic line) at the manifold (again in the back of the fridge) where it gets split between the water line and the ice line. I then just connected the 1/4" flexible copper directly to the manifold (1/4" nut, compression sleeve, male-male connector) using a pre-made 1/4" flexible compression line. Sounds complicated but after seeing how the water routes it was fairly quick work.

Horn wont stop going off


There is a fuse which I have had to remove from my 2002 Montero Sport. It is under the driver side compartment in the fuse panel box near the driver side door. Once you remove the fuse box cover there is a diagram telling you which fuse to remove. Now, your truck will not pass inspection legally until this problem is fixed. There is a switch under the steering wheel cover which is either broken or stuck but with air bags I would not recommend attempting this yourself, but the fuse can be removed as a temporary fix. I hope this helped!

I have a kitchenaid superba diswasher that one of the door hinges has either popped off or broken. I need instruction on how to get into the door to replace it. Model KUDS01FLSS2


what you need to do is unscrew the screws at the top of the dishwasher that's securing the unit to the countertop. gently pull the d/w out from underneath the counter.. please be careful because you may have a copper water line connected to the d/w. if so, then you must remove the line because the copper does not allow you to move the d/w around without the copper line beginning to leak. if you have any other line you can maneuver ok. also, check to see if the electrical line is long enough. if not, secured the power and disconnected the electrial line. when you have all of the restriants out of the way, then pull the d/w out and reconnect the springs. you have 2 spring configurations. you can look at the other side that's not broken to see how to put the other side on. usually only 1 side breaks. you'll need to order the string that connects the spring to the plactic figure 8. take a look at each side and you'll see what im taking about. thanks.
