KitchenAid refrigerators typically last up to 15 years. If you find out that your fridge isn’t working the way it ought to be, then it is highly recommended to do a KitchenAid-specific refrigeration troubleshooting to repair the problem on your own. The troubleshooting tips will guide you to the steps you can do on your own before calling for professional help. Start with your KitchenAid troubleshooting to bring back the maximum performance of your refrigeration system.
Refrigerator Not Cooling
If your refrigerator fails to the standard temperature, your preserved goods will get warm and be spoiled over time. When the lamp lights up as you open its door, it could indicate that your refrigerator got the power. Otherwise, ensure that it’s connected appropriately to the power source and ensure that the circuit breaker didn’t trip.
You need to adjust the thermostat and check if the vents aren’t blocked. Then clean the coils from dirt and other debris below and at the back of your refrigerator to boost the cooling efficiency. If there is no improvement after you perform them, it’s best to call a professional repair technician to diagnose the evaporator or condenser fan or the entire refrigeration system.
Inappropriate Temperature Setting
Start with looking into the temperature control to ensure that it has been set at the desired level. It could have been adjusted to a low level
Damage Door Seal
If you see that the ice building up on the door or the door seal, its seal could be damaged. When the room temperature air gets in, the fridge will manifest some problems in maintaining the standard pressure and temperature.
Defective or Filthy Condenser
The condenser of your KitchenAid refrigerator may be broken or dirty. Once this is the case, its refrigerant will not be able to cycle properly, which will lead to over-freezing.
Clogged Defrost Drain
KitchenAid units come in a defrosting mechanism when the refrigerator needs to get away from too much frost and moisture from the defrosting drain. When the defrosting filters are dirty or blocked, it will cause the ice to build up.
Does your KitchenAid fridge need repair? It is best to contact a highly trained technician to conduct several tests or perhaps install new components when necessary. Once the unit is not able to keep the required temperature, it can lead to a leaking unit.
