The following list covers common issues you may experience with your KitchenAid refrigerator. Many issues can be resolved easily; others may need the assistance of a qualified service technician.
Refrigerator Always Running
Newer Kitchenaid refrigerators tend to run more often than older models. The high-efficiency compressor and fans run more often to keep your refrigerator at a stable temperature but use less energy. Other reasons you may hear your refrigerator fans running for a long time:
- High room temperature: If a room is warm, your refrigerator has to work harder to stay cool. We see a lot more refrigerator repair requests in the summer for this reason.
- Open doors or worn gaskets: Your refrigerator relies on a sealed compartment to help maintain its internal temperature. Cold air escapes if the door is frequently opened. A worn door gasket also allows the cold air to escape, forcing the refrigerator to use more energy to keep the compartment chilled.
- Warm food added: If you put hot or warm food directly into your refrigerator, it can raise the internal temperature several degrees. In order to keep the food at the safe temperature, your refrigerator will have to operate on high to cool the compartment again. We recommend allowing food to cool before placing it in your refrigerator.
Refrigerator Lights Not Working
The light inside your refrigerator should turn on when you open the door. If it is not working, the bulb may be blown or broken. Refer to your owner’s manual for instructions on how to replace the bulb.
By default, the external dispenser light only turns on when in operation. If you would like the light to be on all the time, choose the “Nightlight” or “Auto” setting.
Ice Maker Not Working Properly
Icemakers can be surprisingly complex, and a variety of issues can prevent your KitchenAid ice maker from performing as intended. For example:
If your ice maker is not making enough ice, or the ice is small
Check to see if the ice maker is switched on. It is possible that it was turned off by accident.
Make sure water is flowing to the ice maker. Ensure the water supply is turned on and that the supply tubes aren’t twisted or bent.
Check the filter for blockages. If the filter is old, replace it.
Check the dispenser chute for ice blockages. If you find a blockage, do not use a metal fork or knife to dislodge the ice as this may damage the refrigerator.
If the ice maker has recently made a lot of ice, it will take time for it to produce more. Allow at least 24 hours for the ice bin to refill.
