Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi, when the compressor runs during the call for cooling, the evaporator (freezer section) fan must run, to force cold air in through the freezer-to-fridge section vent. And if you have a condensor fan that blows or sucks room air through the hot coils, that has to run also. If either one is not, there is your problem.
Or the freezer coils may be iced up inside, and there is so much ice (that has become an unwanted insulation) that not cold enough air is being picked up by the freezer fan. And/or that vent also got blocked with ice. When either of these happens, it still will be able to freeze in the freezer - but the low temp may only be say 20 degrees, and you might have 50-60 in the fridge section - when you want about 0 in freezer and about 35-37 in the fridge section.
The cause can be from a defrost timer not working, or the defrost thermostat strapped onto the freezer coils is shot (the electrical circuit within it should be closed, when the coils are frosted), or the defrost element itself is shot. You can test both of these with a voltmeter. If you have a newer digital fridge, you may have some more modern stuff, like a control board and a thermistor involved.
If it is the circuit board, you need to replace it as you already know......
