Hi,
Watch the unit for at least a hour, to see if the temps drop. You could have had the door open too long and lost a lot of air. Normally, they can recover from this, and this is nothing to worry about. I loaded my today also and my temps went up to 45, but my door way open for about 10 mins or so. Don't check the unit for at least 1 hour. Allow time for the system to recover. It should be ok. It should be able to drop temps with in a hour or a least 10 degrees.
Get back to me if you have any more question or concerns.
Good Luck, enjoy your cold beer....

Water dispenser on fridge not working - water pressure fine, could the line be frozen and why would that start happening all of a sudden?


Check to see if the water reservoir in the bottom of the frig is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the frig temp down.

Over temp light on and refrigerator/freezer not staying cold.


Extended warranties usually are not worth the cost. My guess is that KitchenAid wants you to pay $73 out of pocket even though it should be absorbed as part of the warranty replacement of the refrigeration system.

I have a mini red bull fridge...


Open up the compressor area and trace the wiring. The thermostat should be indicated on the wiring diagram, which should be pasted on the cabinet.
It just may not be obvious without a conventional knob, but it will have a thermal sensor tube- usually copper. It might be bonded on a sheetmetal panel inside the fridge. at least one wire to the compressor's mag starter will be attached to that thermostat to interupt power. It would be adjustable with a small flat bladed screwdriver. Clockwise should lower the temperature, and counter clockwise should raise it. To further complicate it that adjustment screw may be under a dab of red paint that used to anchor it.

Put a thermometer in the fridge to monitor the temp. While water will freeze at temps below zero, Sodas will not normally develop ice until below 30 degrees F and and beer will be fine to about 15 degrees F before it freezes.

Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough


If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
