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.
Both bulbs do not work at top. Just happened today.have replaced both but still do not work..any suggestions?
If both top lights are not working and the crisper lights are also not working then you will want to check the light switch to make sure that it is good. If good then you would want to check for power coming off the control board that goes to the light assembly.
I have a KitchenAid side by side refrigerator model # kscs25inssoo that all of a sudden stopped cooling. The interior lights work but nothing else. No read out on the display or noise from the condenser.
Answer Paul, You'll want to check the "main control board" W10219463, located inside the compressor compartment in the back of the refrigerator.
Power is supplied to the board, the board converts and distributes the power to the various components to make them operate. Based on your post, your control board has started to degrade. You'll want to access the board and conduct voltage checks out to the components with a meter.
