Question about KitchenAid KSRG22FK Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

8 year old Kitchenaid not cooling

We have a Kitchenaid side by side. The compressor was replaced two years ago and now seems to be dying again. The fridge section is 50 degrees, the freezer is 50 at the top and 20 at the bottom.

We have a radiant heat floor-could this be causing the unit to overwork itself? If so, is there anything that can be done?

The floor has no control over the fridgr or the way it works.you said its 8 years old youve already replaced the compressor once so maybe it time for e new fridge.

Have power but compressor no work


Tried unplug,replug it back in half or an hour later.Most of the time the the compressor will reset and kick in than it work again.This is a temp solution only,because most of the compressors in frig have this intermittent problems will died again because of over heat the design 24/7 plugin doesn't help especially continue of power to it.Replaced the frig if it more than ten years or replaced the compressor if less.

It's really up to you, to decide whether you want your refrigerator to be fix or replaced and buy a new one. You need to calculate the cost between repair cost and the price of a new refrigerator. Which one is suited your budget plus the convenient of the trouble free unit for many years to come.
Since your refrigerator is about 12 years old already and it's undergo several repair, including the most expensive compressor replacement. I think it's economical to spend for a brand new unit.
New unit have service warranty of about one year, it will take many years before it undergo service repair if you use and treat it with proper care.
Good luck on your decision.

Refrigerator stopped cooling


The most common problems for refers not cooling is a condenser fan motor (the one that cools the compressor) is out. This can be caused by either a mouse has tried to jump trough the fan and it came on or a loss of grease or oil. There is no way to oil them so they have to be replaced. That is the problem especially if you unplugged the refer and it worked for a while then quit. If the fan doesn't cool the compressor it will overheat and shut down coming on intermittently then shutting off again. As for the refer that still doesn't cool when everything else does you may have an burnt overload also. Check the compressor area for burnt or stalled components ex. fan motor, relay, overload. If your compressor is out plan on spending from $300.00 to $500.00. But check the suggested components first. And beware there are appliance shops out there that will find one of these problems and give you an estimate for a compressor. Find someone reputable.
