    We did hit the reset button and put the temp setting on max. Unplugged, let it set then tried again. However no cooling.



    I can hear a fan blowing from the location of the compressor, but I can't tell you I heard the compressor kick on.

HI,

If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running.

First, answer these questions:

  • Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, see “It's stopped completely.”


  • Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it.


Next, see if the compressor motor is running

The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

  • The compressor


  • The Thermostat


  • The overload, relay, or capacitor


  • The defrost timer


  • The condenser fan motor

    Kitchenaid fridge #KSCS25INSS hot door frame


    There are heaters located inside the door frame, to prevent your doors from freezing shut, and also to prevent condensation on the outside of the appliance. It sounds to me as though that is where your problem is... Hope this helps

    Fridge/freezer is not cooling


    CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOUR COILS DON'T HAVE DUST ON THEM
    CHECK TO SEE IF CONDENSER HAS MOISTURE, IF NOT YOU COULD BE OUT OF FREON.

    Freezer is only cool, everything melting


    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.
