Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
Ok well the Power supply is the most likely culprit, this is evidenced by "The control panel fades in then goes off" this then indicates the supply side, as well as the supply, there may well be something else that is causing the supply to fail, it may get worse unit it fails completely.
There isn't really a lot one can do with a unit of this age as well, DIY here isn't really an option. Getting the parts, will/would be the big problem. The best professional advise I can give, that will enable you to obtain a good result, at the very best cost, is to do as follows.
Contact a local or head office of Kitchenaid, ask them for a referral to an authorised servicing center, then contact them, and FIRST ask them for a "Quote" as to the cost and type of repairs. Now you see this way, you can get an idea of costings and exactly what's wrong, then you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace.
You see i am finding more and more, and especially with "Older" units, customers, are preferring to put, any larger monies that would have been spent on repairs, towards the cost of a new unit, with a warranty.
As an aside here, and I make all my clients aware of this, statistics prove, that any unit that is repaired will generally fail again, within the next 12 - 18 months, regardless.
So there you have it.

SOURCE: The control panel fades in
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.So the control panel is flashing on and off? Also can you turn the unit on and listen if the fan in the freezer is running or is it starting and stopping? And did you notice any frost on the lower back wall in the freezer?
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

The Control Center monitors refrigerator and
freezer temperatures as well as the ice maker
system. If there is a temperature or ice maker
problem, you'll be alerted by a flashing
SERVICE indicator light. This same SERVICE
light will also flash if the condenser needs
cleaning. Before calling for service, please
check and see if your condenser area needs
cleaning. Refer to Condenser Cleaning,
In all Built-In models, the condenser is located
behind the grille. First, remove the grille. Then
using a soft bristle brush, vacuum to remove
dust and lint from the condenser. NOTE: To
avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to
vacuum in the direction of the fins (up and
down). Clean the condenser area every three
to six months.
Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity
off at the control panel. When you
clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid
injury from the sharp condenser fins.
Failure to clean the condenser could
result in temperature loss or mechanical
failure or damage.
