Default Kitchen Aid Refrigerator
Model Number: KSSC42QVS   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


At first there was a noice coming from the top of the refrigerator. I think it was the condeser Fan. Now the fan does not start and the lights in the control panel blink on and off. The refrigerator seems not to cool up to the set degrees. Also, The condeser coils on top of the refrigerator are very hot.

Do I need to replace the condenser fan??

Need help. I live in a rural area and the repair company doesn't seem to know what the problem is. Not sure if they have ever worked on a sub zero system.

Default Correction to model number

Hi Simon:

Sorry, but I made a mistake and provided the wrong model number. I used the book I had and it seems to be the wrong user manual. I checked in the refrigerator and the correct number is:

KSSC48QMS02

I was hoping it was only the fan, but you think it is also the control Board?

Thanks for the help. Hopefully it is an easy install.

Use the multimeter to check if there is 120VAC at the condenser motor. If you are lucky and the correct voltage present, replace the motor only Part number: W10181323

Part number: W10181323

Hi Simon:

Sorry for the delay. The system is located in my vacation home and I can only get to it over the weekend.

Where is the condenser motor?

I restarted the system after a week and the fan started up immediately. The control lights come on and it seemed that the frig was working fine. After about two hours the fan turned off and the system would not cool down any longer. I also hear a faint noice close to the on and off switch (a slight clickin)

I need to know if I need control board under the lights in the frig. or the main control board. The fan seems to work fine.

Thanks for all your help.

Hi.

The condenser fan motor is on the top left close to compressor. You need to replace the main control board up on the top. It's no longer available. You need to contact the Whirlpool on this issue. In you previous post you stated that the condenser fan motor doesn't work and that's why I suggested to replace it. So does it work? If it's not - replace it too.

Simon.

Hi Simon:

Well I purchased the control panel. Installed without a problem. The system started up just fine. Both fans were working. The condencer fan after an hour turned off, the system is still cooling but the coils are very warm and the panel by the doors are also warm. Not sure if this is normal. The system has not cooled down to the normal amount. I hope the condenser fan not working will not damage anything else. I am also concerned with the panels in the refrigerator being warm.

Let me know if this is normal.

Hi.

Turn off the refrigerator ASAP - you will kill the compressor.

Why did you replace the control panel instead of the control board up on the top?
