Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators

2 Answers

Kitchenaide side by side Ksrt25crms01. Sounds like a cricket. Not constant. Repair person told me it's a part that costs $600. Perhaps the main panel.. He didn't write down part.

I'm questioning his diagnosis. Refrigerator wasn't make noise at time. I haven't found any parts that are this costly in my online searches. Some responses say it's a fan?

    Labor was $45. I asked him to give me the name of part, haven’t received answer yet. I told him it was a cricket sound, he kept saying chirping sound, said this was common for this frig.
    Should I get another opinion? Another service charge?
    I’ve read it could be a fan problem.

    You are the only who can decide that. Perhaps another company to look at it, then either you will have 2 different repair items or both the same. If you can move unit out go ahead and remove cover at back bottom and look inside. Use your ear to locate the area the sound is coming from. Good Luck

Could be ice building up on evaporator coil and blade hitting the ice and when unit goes into defrost the ice melt and noise stop .
You should asked him what part need replacing

SOURCE: ge after replace fan still fan not working

Something to check for. Is the top of the refrigerator door lower than the freezer door? If so the ref. light may not be turning off all the time. Pull bottom panel off to expose hinges. The ref hinge should have an adjuster. Adjust door up to be level with freezer.

SOURCE: Broken timing chain

It depends on what engine the car has. The 2.8l V6 30v engine (1998 and newer) has a timing belt that runs the water pump and exhaust cams off the crank pulley, but the intake cams are driven by a timing chain assembly inside the head, with each intake cam driven by its respective exhaust cam. The car likely has valve damage, although if it shut down quickly, there may not be any piston or cylinder damage. The only way to know though, is to autopsy the motor and inspect everything. That alone is going to cost a lot. You'd probably be better off sourcing another engine from an auto recycler such as in NY, or on eBay or Craigslist. I'd bet that you'd pay less to buy and ship that engine than you would to determine the full extent of the damage to your own existing engine.

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator stop cold but frosting bad

Hello Catherine Fu,

You said, you got this whirlpool double door refrigerator for 4 years. cost me about 1.5k. the second year, right after warranty, the main brain is down-the light panel in the refrigerator is off. whirlpool tech told me to replace it will cost me 500, so you decide not to do it. Now you have bad frosting issue for 6 month. Inside the Refrigerator, the water keep on dripping on side wall and glass drawer ceiling. In the freezer, frosting all over each drawer, and the bottom drawer has too many frosting and ice that i can hardly close the door. Last night, the refrigerator section just don't get cold anymore, it shuts up by itself.
Help!! It is an very expensive refrigerator and ONLY 4 years old .

First,I think you need to have a new tech.
It sounds like you have either an air leak allowing out side air in and this causes the icing.
Or you may need some freon (coolant gas) .
If your freon pressure is low it can ice up.
Did that tech that was there check for a freon leak and also check the pressure of the freon in the lines???
You need to call a different tech and let him see what's happening.
Some company that is reliable!

Let me know what they do for you.
God bless, Huuum

please remember to leave a rating.

Fridge compressor working constantly

You either have a bad thermostat or the defrost system is not working. This is not a repair the un-skilled homeowner can handle. Try to find an honest repair person. If it is several years old, may not be cost effective to have repaired. Average life of a new frig is in the 8 year range. Lucky if you get more. Older ones were better.

Hai, In my country, we do not change the main board, because the cost is equal to the price of a new, why you need to buy the main board under the warranty repair only the longest one month? whereas if you buy a new or used, it is more worthwhile. If you have tried to change a new LCD display screen, but the results remain the same, perhaps it is divided UEM ic problem, this happens because you always fall. ic is too close to the frame. hentakkan effect on the frame due to falls, may interfere with the original position, if the worst Solder balls under the ic off. If you are lucky. Try to heat the surface of the UEM ic, add Solder flux before the process is done. Solder balls when you get looked melted, press the top surface is a soft ic so it does not directly close to the surface of the board, as this can make Solder ball attached to one another, if you have a place to sell spare parts for ic, it is better there ic change is the new home you buy a new board. cheaper cost, but I do not know the cost of installation if you sending to your technician.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa, Please allow me to assit you.

The issue that you are having is indeed in the control assembly. Yes, it does cost over 600 dollars to replace it.

However...if you have any soldering skills, or know someone that does have soldering skills, you can fix this problem yourself.

All that is wrong with the controller is a broken wire going from the small printed ciorcuit board that the knob is located on, to the controller's main PC board. Removal of the controller, and a disassembly will show you the broken wire. Just solder the wire back to the terminal that does not have a wire on it will fix you right up, AND save you 600 dollars!!!

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice today.

Don't know what a placer main is. Maybe the person was from the deep south who told you this. And they actually said "Ya nee-ta 'place 'er main board, sunny"
So they suggested a new Main board. But I would try checking the inverter board or CCFL's first. Try shining a flashlight at the screen while it's on and producing sounds. See if there's a dim picture. This means that you really do have a picture still, but the backlights aren't lighting up, so you can't see it.
Ya nee ta 'place yer 'verter board, maybe co-catho flor-sent ligh's too!

I got a treo 600 cricket flash and the screen comes up verzion the person said it was flashed already. how do i make the phone come cricket screen

Call your cell phone provider and ask if they support the phone, it will work regardless but if they don't no screen change. My wife has t-mobile with an AT&T face. She just changed the wallpaper. If you find this helpful, please post as such.

Even if you buy the parts you may get sticker shock!!! Why did it need a power supply and another board. Will your set come on? I may be able to give you part numbers but you need to be specific about which other board you think you need such as X Y signal board or power supply Some single circuit boards for some sets are as high as 600 bucks hope not for you
