Troubleshooting Kitchen Aid KBRA20ERSS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
The temperature control pads do not work any more. It will not change the temperature on either the freezer or fridge. It also has pads for the optimal ice, holiday mode, temp alarm, door alarm… and that will not light up the indicator lights either. The fridge is 1 1/2 years old.

I had a similar problem with my Maytag Wide-By_Side. When I wheeled it out and searched near the compressor, I could smell a burned electronic smell. It came from a relay called the "relay overload assembly". Besides smelling burnt, when powered up, this relay started clicking on and off every ten or twenty seconds (far too frequently). I ordered the part from the local appliance parts place. The part I took off was an electro-mechanical relay (set of points/click-click switch). The relay I got from parts was a solid-state (all electronic-no points) device. It looked different, but installed with fairly simple directions. Problem fixed. About $25. Shop around internet by model. Look for parts blowup diagram. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Ice maker Stopped working

I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.

All of there appliances are second rate. That is "The KitchenAid Difference"

The ice maker has stopped working. The red led light blinks when the freezer door is opened. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: no ice production

Chances are the fill valve at the bottom back of the refrigerator is clogged or failed. This valve opens to allow water to fill into the icemaker.
It could also be that the fill switch in the icemaker has failed, or depending on type of icemaker, the ice level bar is flipped up, or the mold heater sensor has failed.

Please provide the refrigerator P/N for more information.

SOURCE: Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

KITCHEN AID REFRIGERATOR PROBLEM We bought a used Kitchen Aid fridge YKSRS22Q (1993), the ice maker is not working but water does work. What should we check to see why the ice maker doesn't work?


Ice makers work off of temperature. If it's not cold enough in the freezer it won't work. Check the temperature with a thermometer, it should be 0 to +10F

Kitchen Aid Refer: KSSC42FMS01: The freezer, doesn't go below 32


How long have you had this refrigerator and is this the first time this has happened? Your refrigerator has a control board and I believe the board is causing the refrigerator not to defrost every 8 hours. Let me know these questions and I will help you resolve this. Thanks, Sea Breeze
