Question about KitchenAid KSRA22ILSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

THE FRIGDE IS TOO WARM.

THE FREEZER SIDE IS FINE BUT THE FRIDGE TEMP. IS AT 16 DEGREE CELCIUS FOR AT LEAST 1 DAY NOW. I HAVE MOVED EVERYTHING THAT WAS NEAR THE VENT BUT STILL DON'T FEEL ANY AIR MOVEMENT THROUGH TO THE FRIDGE SIDE. I HAVE CLEANED ALL DUST BEHIND AND BELOW THE FRIDGE. I HAVE TURNED IT OFF THEN ON BUT STILL NOT WORK.
SHOULD I TURN IT OFF COMPLETELY FOR A DAY TO DEFROST ANYTHING THAT MAY HAVE PLUG THE AIR FLOW BETWEEN THE FREEZER AND THE FRIDGE.?

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

Why is Fridge not cooling well?


The part number you need is going to be WR09X10050. This is for the damper assembly, but while you are at it change out part number WR55X10150. this is the part that controls the damper and more than likely if one fails the other will be soon to follow

the freezer should be arond -20 degrees celcius and the fridge aroud 5 degrees celcius
There could be a problem with air flow
the fan in the freezer has probably stopped or the air flow into the fridge is probably blocked

Fridge is not cold


Side by side cooling units usually have 2 compressors, one for the freezer and one for the refrigerator. The refrigerator compressor may be bad, or not pulling enough power, or there may have been a leak in the tubing that the compressor uses to cool the unit with. To diagnose the problem, be aware of the noises the unit makes, and check to make sure it is a 2 compressor unit. If you only hear one compressor running then your compressor is bad, if you hear one running too often, then your tubing is bad, if the back of the refrigerator side is warm but the inside is not cooling down, then the compressor is not drawing enough power. Keep in mind that the radiant heat from the operational (presumably) freezer side may cause the refrigerator side to appear warm. (usually there is a type of wire backing with tubes running along it, these tubes should be mildly warm.)

Fridge warm, freezer fridge temp


The adaptive derost control has gone bad a very common issue. It will work a couple of weeks before its back to its frosting over. It just plugs in but to get to it you must remove the controls at top of frigde section in the back right corner held in by two scewrs.

Fridge and freezer warm at top, colder but not normal on lower shelves


How old is this frig? If it is older that 12-15 years, get a new one. Make sure there is not blockage to keep the air from circulating properly. The vent from the freezer to the cooler should also be free from blockage as well.

check the evaporator fan motor, behind the back wall of the freezer. If that is turning check if the damper is opening, top lt of the refrigerator compartment. I hope this helps you.
