Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a KitchenAid Refrigerator, model # KSS048FMX01.... The problem is all of the lights do not come on at all ----both in the freezer , and in the refrigerator itself. Are the bulbs on a series circuit?? Or is the a reset button, or separate breaker for the lights?? If so, I cannot seem to find it. I cannot locate a door switch either. Please advise, Thanks, Ted

SOURCE: My whirlpool refrigerator trips the main power

Pankaj, Do you have a ohm meter? Sounds like you have something shorting back. First take the meter to the cord. On the end of the cord, you should show no continuity from each male prong to the ground prong on the cord itself. If you show continuity, you have something shorting back. Then I would start with the compressor, Unplug the wires going to the overload and relay, make sure the units unpluged and meter the cord again. If it's ok, then the problem is in the overload and relay. Start there and let me know, if it still showing a short, then we will have to go to the controls, heater, and repeat the process until you find the culprit. Catriver.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator french door icemaker not working

The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
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.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: New Kitchenaid refrigerator often makes sharp bang noise.

I have an old Amana bottom freezer that does that. It's because the defrost heaters are doing their job and the area around them as well as the coil is expanding rapidly. Try making certain that the cabinet is level and not on an unsteady footing. You might want to try turning the T stat in the freezer to a lower setting. Usually between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 works best in all freezers. If none of this helps and the banging continues, get used to it or get another fridge. It seems to be a failing in bottom freezer models for some reason. It's harmless but annoying. I actually know someone who says she has the ghost of a frozen turkey stuck in her freezer that's trying to get out! LOL!
