kitchen aide fridge KSRS25QGWH03
« on: March 05, 2012, 05:41:44 PM »
Got a Kitchenaid KSRS25QGWHQ3 fridge.  Around 12 years old.  Lady says it is not cooling, but running.  I haven't checked it yet, but I am thinking of the compressor area, maybe timer.  Anyone have any ideas on this.  I looked on Appliance Parts Pro's link, shows pretty simple diagram. But no service manual.

If the compressor is running and frig not cooling, without having eyes on. I would think defrost circuit first. what about the freezer is it at correct temp or not? when you get there take a look at the coils and that should tell you if its a defrost problem or sealed system problem.

Yea, that's pretty much what I am thinking also.  With it being 12 years old I am thinking that there could be some bad parts on it.  But the timer I may look at first. See if the compressor is kicking on and defrost heater working. It is probably thawed by now.  She told me it was 60 degrees in the fresh food compartment.  Which is a bit high.  If the coils are barely or half frosted could indicate low freon level or restriction in system.  If frozen completely could be a heater or thermostat problem.  There are a couple parts on it that I am not familiar with.  The cold control thermostat and the thermostat shutoff switch.  That is why I was looking for a manual for it.  See how to test them.  I guess an ohm meter would work.  I know if there is power to compressor and freezer is cooling  the cold control thermostat should be O.K.

As a general rule, I would first check to see if the compressor is running. After that check that the evaporator fan is turning. Look for frost on the back freezer wall, which would indicate a defrost issue. Check that condenser motor is operating. If this checks out, look at the condenser coils for blockage. If all this checks out ok I would then check for appropriate heat in high side coils. On this particular unit if everything checks good, I would suspect one of the cold controls. One has a capillary tube that feeds into the freezer side that actually cycles the compressor at desired temperature. The other opens and closes the air damper to control fresh food side temperate. Good luck.keep it simple and don't look past your problem.
