Freezers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I searched forever for an answer to this and never found one. So this is what I did when you take the cover off on the left hand side there are two switches with two wires coming from.each switch. Then in the same group of wires the is two slightly larger wires one red one black. Those wires go to the optic eye that tells the machine is full. Cut and splice these teo wires together coming from the circuit board this will tell the machine it is empty and should make ice. Worked for me. It just doesn't cut off on its own whenever its full.

Hello Wayne,
You already mentioned the reason for the excess water. When the freezer automatically defrosts itself once every 24 hours the melted water drains down through a tube down to a water pan at the bottom of the refrigerator where it sits and supposedly evaporated by the fan back into the atmosphere. However in your case the excessive dust is preventing the evaporation phase to occur by the fan. You need to vacuum as much of the dust as possible and your problem will disappear.
Good Luck

Try resetting the temperature adjustment. Back to zero and then to desired setting again.

the problem is that the compressor is not working
call a technician for a proper diagnosis
and it is not a pressure sound but a vacuum sound as the door when closed drops the temp inside the unit and that creates a vacuum making the door temporarily hard to open

Hello David Riome,

Why are you discovering a FACTORY ASSEMBLY
does not fit ...??
(just be sure... KITCHENAID was one of my worst).

and keep in mind...
ALUMINUM only bends a very few times before
it breaks (soft, brittle & very difficult to repair).
((protect it)).

The FAN must be free of all obstructions to function.
If it is out of balance, worn or broken in ANY WAY...

Make sure all wires and lines are ABSOLUTELY
NOT in contact with the fan bracket...
(secured out of the way).

Most of these newer units have aluminum evaporators
and a FAN BRACKET will easily wear a HOLE in

Like a saw... It may take a couple of years but
sure as winter follows autumn... $$$$$ damage
from conflicted refrigerant lines.

Move the wires and lines away from the FAN.
