Default Kitchenaid Freezer cold Fridge Warm
Model Number: KSRA25ILSS01   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Background....
- Up to two weeks ago the fridge was working fine.
- Then the fridge started to get very cold and ice started to form in the milk.
- One week ago the fridge was warm milk definitely was not cold.
- I did some checking on the internet and saw that the damper could be an issue.
- Definitely no cold air coming through the damper.
- Ran the diagnostics and everything checked out the themistors fridge & freezer gave green light. Got a compact mirror and saw that the damper would open and close but was not smooth in the process.
- Could gently pry the damper open with a butter knife and feel some air but never felt a lot of air coming through.

Last Thursday...
- Unpluged fridge and washed the freezer down.
- Took off the back panel and not build up of ice.
- Made sure the air flow was not blocked from the freezer to the fridge via damper.
- Put the freezer back together
- Cleaned the back where the compressor is.
- Coils in front were dirty and used a vacuum in reverse to blow it clean had dust everywhere LOL
- I plugged it in and almost immediately the freezer dropped to a cold temperature and started making ice again.
- Air flow in the freezer is good.
- The fridge started to get cold and had good air flow.
- Everything seemed back on track.
- I also noticed the air flow is strong again.

Yesterday...
- Fridge is starting to warm up again.
- Freezer is working well and still makes ice and everything is frozen.
- Milk is warm again.
- Noticed no air flow in fridge
- Airflow in freezer is good
- I noticed the Damper is closed again and I could gently pry it open and started air flow just not as strong.
- Current temperature in freezer after 1 minute on an instant read termometer is -6.5 with a setting of -5 on the control panel
- Current temperature in fridge after 1 minute on an instant read termometer is +41 with a setting of +33 on the control panel

Question...

With no ice on the coils and the damper not staying open could it be a faulty damper? and if so, should I also replace the fridge thermostat?

Any other thoughts?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Pj

P.S. Sorry if this is long but wanted to provide as much detail as possible.

This thread may relate to my issue with my KSRA25CNSS00
I replaced the damper about 6 weeks ago after having the same symptoms, warm fridge cold freezer no airflow this seemed to have fixed the problem. The problem has returned freezer 3 deg, fridge 47, I have frost on the damper fridge side but the damper seems to be open but not much air flow. When I replaced the damper i did not replace the thermistor. Could this be the problem?

Thanks
