The timer knob on the front of the panel have to be removed. It unscrews, counterclockwise. If there are any plastic discs behind it, they will also have to be removed (by pulling off). This will expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.

If the timer knob doesn't unscrew and spins freely, the shaft leading into the timer is dislodged (permanently). You will have to destroy the timer to get to it. Remove the backplate by twisting straight the bent metal pieces which hold the cover in place. When you get to where you can see the shaft you will have to destroy the plastic which surrounds it to get to the shaft ifself. A pair of vice grips and a "I don't care if I destroy it" attitude is helpful. Once you get to the bare metal shaft you can hold it with vice grips and unscrew the knob to expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.

Check for power at the outlet first, did you trip a circuit breaker.

If you want to remove the control panel, first unplug the washer then on the bottom of the control panel are two screws, remove these then the control panel should pull forward and flip up to give you access to controls. Remember to watch for sharp edges once you remove any control panel

I have a kitchenaid superba s by s. About every 3 days the freezer quits running and then after about 4 hours the freezer starts working again. What may be the problem?


Are you sure your model number is KSRD22FKST ? Sounds like the defrost timer is defective yet the model number you have above your post shows a W10351625 Defrost Control Board
9_26_2012_4_09_33_pm.jpg
In the fresh food section above the top shelf the control panel has either a defrost timer or an electronic defrost control. Unplug refrigerator and remove the face of the control panel so you can examine the timer or electronic defrost control for burn marks or signs of heat. The timer or defrost control is most likely what is causing the problems you describedand changing will more than likely solve this problem, Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
Post the correct model number if possible, Thanks John Tripp

Kitchenaid Superba Dishwasher clogged or jammed with broken glass


You will probably have to get at it from the bottom, possibly the back of the washer. Here is a link to your repair manual.

Ice maker stopped working in refridgerator


Water flow is governed by a solenoid valve which is controlled by a timer that sets the cycle for all of the icemaker functions. The timer is controlled in turn by the switch that is actuated when the bin is full. One of these three is malfunctioning and to determine which is at fault will require the removal of the icemaker mechanism (to check the switch) and possibly sheet metal on the back of the fridge. 
You will also need a multimeter of some kind to check for switch operation and continuity of the solenoid coil. Adequate instruments can cost as little as $3 and in any case under $20, have digital displays and are normally accompanied by some instructions in Chinglish which are sometimes pretty entertaining.

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.
