Question . Is it possible that the fan is not moving enough air to cool the fridge and freezer ?
I put a floor fan in front of the fridge and it works fine so I thought that the fan was no good. Ordered the fan motor. When I pulled out the fridge to change the fan it was working. So i put it back in place and moved the floor fan thinking all was well but it stopped cooling again .
should i just change the fan ?

the plug is on the back of the left-hand deli drawer, under a protruding cover.

Can anyone tell me specifically where that plug is at so I can get my lights and ice and water working again??

Thanks for the fix. The drawer track sliced two cables in the left drawer. Slide the protective sleeve back until you find the two broken wires and mend them back together. Should only take 10 min.
Lift the grey drawer tray on the left out, Unclip the drawer front by lifting the metal locking tabs. Use a flat screwdriver to remove the cover over the wire harness plug located on the bottom inside right of the drawer face, Then unplug it and set the drawer face on the ground. Remove the snap on wire cover from the left track. Slide the protective sleeve back that covers the wires until you find the damaged wire and mend them back together.

Did you plug the wire back in that you undid?

I was having similar issues with a 5yr old Kitchenaid 5door fridge...all interior lights and water dispenser randomly stopped working. Not to be left out, the 'door-ajar' red light/alarm elevated the annoyance factor. After reading this and similar threads, I zeroed in on the wire bundle inside the left deli drawer. I did notice a very slight stress in the webbed sheathing about half way back, but nothing major....likely a snag along the sliding track at some point. There very well could be compromised wire in the bundle.
I simply unfastened the wire harness from the deli drawer....and ALL my issues were magically resolved. BEWARE; the possessed water dispenser seemed to remember some test attempts placed on it over the days prior...and peed all over the floor. Have a cup ready.
I know, its a frustratingly ridiculous bandaid, not a logical solution.....but the relief is still real.
(Note; we have a separate ice maker, and had previously disabled the one on the fridge....so I do not know if this random solution affects the fridge ice maker.)

WHERE IS PLUG BEHIND MEAT DRAWER
Thursday, April 14, 2022 6:30:14 PM(UTC)
hello - I have the same problem but started out with the Fridge not cooling - so this is what I did:
I have a Kitchen aid KRMF706ESS01 refrigerator that stopped working. I replaced the evaporator motor fan in the Fridge and that seemed to turn it back on. a few days later the lights turned off inside, fridge was cold, freezer was not and no ice and no water. I called the Kitchen Aid folks and they sent out a repairman - said my fans were good and he disabled the middle compartment (meats and veggies drawer) said sometimes the wiring goes bad and when it does it shuts every thing down. We reset and everything turned back on, lights, water and cooling was great. Then a few mins after he left, the lights turned off, no water, but can hear the fan I replaced still working. I called the repairman and he said try replacing the evaporator motor fan in the freezer. So I ordered that, but meanwhile another repair man came from a different company to install the freezer motor but said the problem might be the circuit board instead. The board has been on back order for 3 months now.... meanwhile, the fridge is still not functioning and I said I will install the freezer motor myself... but then when I opened the fridge, I noticed everything was cold, still no lights or water or ice, but the freezer was cold (after 2 months of not working) as well.... I opened everything up in the freezer towards the evaporator fan, noticed the coils were cold, had some frost but not frosted over.... I went ahead and replaced the evaporator motor anyway since I was already in there. I turned the power back on - lights are on, water is flowing and both fridge and freezer is cold.... I put a cup of water in the freezer and the water froze over..... one hour later, the lights are back off, the water stopped dispensing, but the fridge is still cold, and freezer is still freezing water.... What is going on with this fridge? Please help me! I have spent over 600.00 on parts and 2 repair man to come to just tell me what they think was wrong without even touching anything. The fridge has been out since Christmas! Thank goodness we have a second fridge in the garage but now that Freezer has stopped working so all I have is a barely working Fridge in the garage. Eating out is starting to be annoying. Please help and thank you
