kitchen aid refrigarator on top and frezzer on bottom. the

Resolved Question:

kitchen aid refrigarator on top and frezzer on bottom. the ice maker stopped working and I noticed it was constantly getting ice formations on the ice maker arms that kick the cubes out and after gently removing them it would make ice. then it just stopped all toghther and I thought the water service tube was frozen so I turned down the frezzer temperture to off and left the fefrigarator on it's cold setting. When I got up the next morning both frezzer and refrige was warm. I unplugged the electricity for a day to see if it might reset. it didn't and is is not working at all. Lights are on and fan is blowing air but still warm?

I understand, open the freezer Greg and without turning the control all the way off turn it down close to off and back all the way cold. Can you hear it click? You will have to listen very close.

Thanks,

The part on your model that is attached to the side of the compressor is a very common failure, replace this part, be sure to unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet before touching this part. Its mounted to the side of the compressor. Especially if it smells or rattles when you shake it. This part can also break because of a compressor failure. The only way to find out is change it and see if the compressor does start.

Be sure to make a wire diagram or take a picture of where the wires go before you take them off. Remove the wire clip and this part pulls straight off. 67005560 is the part number you can shop with. One place that has that online is just below or you can shop locally.

If you have questions please ask me, if not then please leave a rating for me.

Thanks,
Barry
