Kitchen aid control board alarm
« on: October 06, 2013, 08:33:04 AM »
The control board has a high pitched alarm that cycles on and off and as it does this the Condenser and evap fan cycle on and off (never stop but you can see and feel both blow less air) also when it does this the digital temp indications go on and off. Also the water filter % left, is at 0 and when hitting reset it will not change(its flashing 0 ). I did the Diagnostic mode test and it had codes of 01 on all but #3 & 5 (code 02)
 #3 is the evap fan not at speed (it does run as mentioned above)
 #5 compressor not at speed (is running )
 Fridge is cooling but have found it off before, I have turned the power off and on and it seems to have run thru the night. Freezer set point is 4 deg. indication says 10 refrigerator section at 37 deg. set point. I was going to buy a new control board ?? I also have the same fridge next to this one but don't want to swap boards just in case some other problem destroys that board also and I have nothing to keep my food in !!!
 Thanks Russ

is this a common problem?? Do you think swapping the board from the other refrigerator would be wise??
Thanks Russ

That would be your call on swapping out board.

Thanks Dab. So from what I have read its about 1 week turn around on repairing the board. Just looking at what to do with food we have right now. AS soon as we figure out the food plan I will ship the card out.
Thanks again Russ

So I did the test as described in above link. I checked  voltage prior to starting the test and had 12.2 V DC but every time the board would alarm I got 8 DC  ,
during the test in (4) I had steady 12 w VDC.

I will give them a shout, I do have a matching fridge and was thinking of taking the control board out of this one and swapping it into the other and see if has the same problem. Just afraid I might damage something in the other fridge and be out of two !
Thanks for you help Russ
