Ive got a KitchenAid built in frig, display gets dim and some times cuts off and on, also sounds like the evaporator fan kicks off and on when this happens. The interior light stays on solid the whole time this is going on. It seems to be worse if the power is turned off for a few minutes, i.e. turn power off, after turning back on, the unit turns off and on for a few minutes and then stabilizes, kinda like a power supply going bad. Anyone have any Idea's.

PMed you the service manual for this one.

Sounds like you may have a bad voltage regulator on the main electronic control board, it supplies power for both the evap fan and the display board. You can verify by reproducing the problem (if you can) and then measuring the DC voltage to the evap fan, should be stable and not fluctuating or cutting out.
