Default KitchenAid Side by Side Fan Runs Continuously
Model Number: KSSC42QTS00   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The fan in my Kitchen Aid runs almost continuously. I'm not sure if it's the evaporator fan or the condenser fan. I say "almost" because it will turn off for about half a second, but then immediately turns on again. The cycle time varies from less than 10 seconds to over 2 minutes. But except for these half-second interruptions, it basically runs 24 hours a day.

Other than that, the refrigerator seems to be operating fine. Freezer and refrigerator temperatures are maintained at the suggested 0 and 37 degrees (at least according to the panel displays).

Any help in diagnosing what's going on, and/or what part(s) are failing would be appreciated.

Many thanks!

If the compressor in the back will not allways run then you probably have a bad control module 2316545

Part 2316545 is showing up as the Control Box which has the touch panel. Is that what you meant?? Doesn't sound right.

Also, wouldn't the refrigerator get too cold if the compressor itself was running constantly? I listened more carefully, and it sounds like my problem is the evaporator fan behind the freezer compartment.

Check the schematic behind the front kick panel, will probbly show the control is the only thing supplying power to the evaporator fan motor.
