I HATE my KitchenAid Refrigerator. It has been
I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.
I i got you correct, the buzzing noise is coming from compressor or around that area. If yes, there could be 2 probabilities. Either it is faulty compressor relay or compressor. Compressor's usually have 5 years warranty and they usually fail very rare.
is not an issue with defrost components or temp. control .If you have
experience in repairing appliances, could take all precautions
necessary and use multimeter - You could do a continuity check on
compressor motor and all combination's. An infinity value on multimeter
would confirm bad compressor.
On the side of the compressor you will see a box
(maybe a cover) remove the cover if it has one and then remove the wire
harness. next you will see the relay with the capacitor mounted to it.
give the relay a tug and pull it off the side of the compressor. once
you have it off pull the capacitor off and then give the relay a shake.
If it rattles the relay is bad. if the relay does not rattle the
compressor is bad and you will need to call a service guy to replace the
This compressor relay could cause cooling problems. So, i would not jump on to the conclusion that whether motherboard is at fault or any of the defrosting element. This buzzing or clicking noise is more often from compressor or around that area which makes it more prudent to check compressor relay.
Let me know,once you check those.
Hope i helped you.

How to replace kitchenaid superba light bulb
The light bulb on the water/ice dispenser on our Kitchenaid Superba side by side refrig needs replacement. Easy! Right?
However it is screwed in so tightly and the location is behind the panel is so small, it it very difficult to get a grip on it to unscrew it!
We,ve tried rubber gloves, WD-40 and an Exacto knife(w/ fuse turned off!) and still cannot get this very annoying light bulb out!!
Does anyone have any ideas or can we remove panel it hides behind to get to it!!!???
Thanks for any info on this should be simple issue!!

KitchenAid Superba ice maker not dispensing ice
this is not a solution, but an explanation- our repair man said that there is a line (tube) containing electric wires that passes from the frig to the door at the bottom of the door, near the hinge. for what ever reason, the line has broken, thus keeping the electric from getting to the motor that dispense ice and water- solution= $700 for a new door; we'll do without
