Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
Model KSCS25INSS00, bought July, 2004
Fridge is 4 years old-
Neither side will get cold at all, heated door frames are cool, power and light seem ok, digital display appears normal.
A technician came out and said the main electronic control was bad and sent a new one (P/N 2307028) and I installed it (Since he forgot to schedule a return visit, and I didn't want to wait another week.)
Still no change in operation.
I ran the service diagnostic mode from the fridge control panel- but step 5, compressor check, showed code 02; compressor off. I waited 7 minutes as suggested by the service and wiring sheet, but still no compressor ops (should read code 01).
Checking the schematic on the reverse side of the sheet, I don't see a compressor relay, but rather an inverter (gray box, sits next to the compressor in the back).
I actually don't see any relays in the schematic at all- is it all solid state?
Completely unrelated, but I did notice that there is an optional door heater for stainless steel models, as I noticed in other posts, people complained about the seal area being warm- Mine's been warm from the get-go, I believe it is to keep condensation from freezing the seal to the frame. I'm not sure if the heater is electric or (as I believe in my case) part of the evaporator loop.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

SOURCE: Compressor not running
you can try to repalce the "overload relay", with the model numberlook up the correct part. i would also check with oyour manual perhaps you have an extended warr. on your compressor assembly( comes with a new overload relay)..

the large black component being the compressor itself,i assume...the relay/overload device plugs directly onto the compressor sometimes hidden by a protective cover that you have to pry/or break off sometimes...follw the wires leading to the compressor they attach to the device itself...wires are usually red and white sometimes include yellow or blue also- for a capacitor
