Default Baffle Motore
Model Number: KSSO42QMB01   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Kitchenaid was making a slight knocking noise. 2-10 home warranty sent a Sears repairman. He said it was the Baffle Motor and that the part was no longer available. 2-10 said sorry we can't help but here is $200.00. I have looked at sites for the part but cannot find a baffle motor listed as a part. Do I have any recourse for repair or do I have to buy a new refrigerator.

Rblake, Apparently, this would be the "meat Pan" air baffle assembly (2302987) making the noise ? That is the baffle assembly that has been discontinued by the manufacturer. But there shouldn't be a need to replace the refrigerator, you could search the inter net or local appliance parts distributors for "antique" or "discontinued" parts. You could also disconnect the wiring harness, and open the baffle door 1/2 to 3/4 open. The automatic control feature won't operate, but there will be cool/cold air supplied to the meat pan.

Rblake,
OK, give it a shot, it can't hurt ... You can try the air damper block as a last resort.

Keep in touch, and let us know the results.

Thanks
