I need to get part #W10219463 repaired because the KitchenAid no longer makes the part. Your site shows it located behind the display panel in the refrigerator. How do I access it? Thanks.
The control board listed W10219463 which is the main control board for the unit is located in the rear of the unit in the compressor compartment. If you pull the unit out, remove the compressor compartment cover and on the left side there will be a whitish, tan box held to the frame on the left side that you remove the 2 screws and pull it out. This control board is located in that box.
Unit seems to be running a little hot. Where the two doors close on the unit gets very hot to the touch. Is my control board causing this to occur? Had to pull unit out from the wall and put a fan behind it to keep it under control. But the door area still gets hot. Is the defrost cycle on too long?
Answer Hello Robert,
You need to clean the condenser coils and make sure the condenser fan W10124096 is running, (fan behind the refrigerator). The heat you are feeling is the heat removed from the inside of the unit that should be dissipated back into the room but is backing up in the sealed system due to either an air flow restriction or the failure of the condenser fan motor.
