Question about KitchenAid KSRS25IL Side by Side Refrigerator

Freezer and Fridge not getting cold

Up front...that's for any help.
I have a kitchenAid side by side. The Freezer/Fridge are not getting cold.
Opened it up. The fan is running.
Attached to compressor is a unit (not the capacitor, I think it is the starter). I hear a click ... then a long low humming noise...Then after about 20 seconds the sound goes away (and I can see a little spark).
There is a long pause, and then it repeats.
What do I need to replace?

This is one of those things that i really recommend you call a service tech. it sounds like the compressor is locked up. if the motor starter is sparking then it signals an over voltage to me. either way call a service man from sears. good luck

Freezer working fine, fridge not at all


Brand name and model would help but here is a guess. Most frost free refrigerators have the main cooling unit in the freezer area side. To get the fresh food side cold, there is a small fan in the freezer side that blows cold air to the fresh food side through a duct work or trap door. If that fan stops or fails for and reason, the first place you will notice the temp rise is in the fresh food section. See if you can hear the freezer fan running. You may need to push in the door switch for the freezer light to hear the fan because they sometimes run the fan wiring through the door switch. It may stop when door is opened.

I have a kitchenaid superba ksrs25ilwh side by side fridge. The freezer is working fine but the fridge wont get cold enough even at the lowest temp


check the damper vent door for proper opening and closing as if this door is frozen shut or broken and jammed it cant open to let cold air in from freezer it will be behind a plastic grille between the freezer and fridge compartments and you should hear a fan in there running to move cold air too

Is the condenser fan and evaporator fan working? Is there frost build up on inside back wall of freezer? Either fan nor working would affect the cooling capacity. If there is frost in freezer, you have one or more defrost components (timer, heater, thermostat) bad.

Th refrigerator part is not cooling ?


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge and freezer not getting cold



  • You have 2 fans Make sure your top fan is working ,its located inside the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Fridge not getting cold enough


listen for the compressor running in the back at the bottom. when you hear that running, open the freezer section. do you hear a fan blowing inside the freezer? if not, the evaporator fan motor is jammed with ice build-up or it's bad. hope this helps.
