Jon : Hello
Jon : My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an authorized kitchenaid and whirlpool service tech and I can help you today. Thank you for coming to the website.
Do you need more information?
Jon : can you t me the background here for the repairs on your machine? This way I know the full story with hat happened to you machine?
Jon : thanks
Jon : it will better help me help you.
Jon : sorry above it should have said can you tell me more about the ref problems?
Kitchenaid refrigerator KSSS48QKB00 stopped cooling. A repairman first diagnosed the problem as the evap fan and replaced it. The refrigerator still did not work. They then said the control board needed to be replaced. They removed the board and 2 days later said that is was only available as a refurbished part. They then called back a day later said they couldn't find a replacement part. Refrigerator is completely turned off now.
Jon : if you want to be sure the first repair man that checked your machine is accurate and telling you that you need a new main computer for the fan in the evaporator not working, you can easily check that by checking the voltage supply to the fan motor if you have a volt meter?
Jon : oh ok. Let me check the parts first to see if they are still available. But please answer me one question, was the fan in the freezer section not running or working at all?
Jon : Ill check the parts for you now. Give me one minute. Be right back.
no I do not have a volt meter. I am trying to determine if the part is repairable. He turned the circuit breaker off so no power is presently being delivered to the refrigerator.
Jon : Yes. I have part info for you
What I was told was that the fan was initially not working. They replaced that but the refrigerator still did not work. He told me that what probably happened was once the fan didn't work it shorted-out the board.
Jon : this is a repairable part. And since this is an older built in model ref, the board for this machine has been discontinued. Which happens often. Te board has to be sent to a company that will repair it and fix it. Then they send it back to you to fix the machine. Otherwise, you are looking at a whole new rf.
Jon : i can get you the info for where to send the board if you have the board. This way you can get it fixed and back working again?
Jon : is that something you want me to do?
That would be awesome!
Jon : it happens a lot on these kinds of machines. I see it often. Especially when a control board is discontinued.
Jon : You got it. Give me one second.
Jon : Here is the no you will need.
They claimed to have called a place that told them they don't repair this board. Thanks. I will definitely give you time.

Jon : as long as you still have the board andthe repair company didn't take it you can send the board to them the paperwork you can download from their website, they will fix it and send it back to you. The if you want, andif you are handy, I can walk you through how to install it in your ref? That will save you hundreds on cost of repair.
Great, thanks. Just one question -- I was told that the repair center they were sent to claimed to not repair that board anymore. Is there a chance I will run into that again?
I have the board.
Jon : ok good that you have the board. As far as for not repairing that board, I don't believe so. There are a very limited amounts of boards they don't repair. This one I do believe they do. Just sent one to the a few months ago.
Jon : i would either call the or go online to make sure. But I will tell you this, it is still listed only parts warehouse that they will repair it. And they are usually up to date with their info. If you have another troubles get backto me here and I will see if I cando it for you.
