Customer Question
Our kitchenaid refrigerator is...

Our kitchenaid refrigerator is making a loud humming noise. KFI25XVMS6

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Think it is around 4ish years old. 25 CF model KFIS25XVMS6 I have vacuumed around the bottom that had some dust buildup

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is doable--but we are not super mechanical
