First than ks for your fabulous advice I fixed a problem that had been bedeviling me with my GER dryer for years but now I come to problem number two. I have a Kitchenaide Superba model KSRA221LSS13 Serial number SR2427001 which is a side by side manufactured in the dastardly year of 2004. At first it was too warm in the refrigerator side and not producing ice. I turned it off (reboot) and things started working again However the internal temperature controls (electronic on the top of the inside door) never seem to do anything and in fact I cannot vary the temperature more than a degree. So a couple months go by and the freezer is getting colder and colder frosting up and meat section of the refrigerator is also freezing and of course finally the water dispenser freezes up which forces me to swing into action and reboot again (my wife is a serious drinker of chilled water). So something (the defrost system? or maybe the internal thermostat? is obviously wrong but I need your expert guidance to track this thing down.

Humbly, Will

Recheck your model number....More than likely you have a KSRA22iLSS13. Sounds to me like your electronic (Jazz) board is bad but I would change thermistor first to see what happens.

My apologies not the best at reading schematics but it appears the Thermistor (the first attempt) can be accessed from the upper left back side but if that does not fix it and I move on to the Electronic Control board I cannot figure out how to access it from the schematic. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Unplug the fridge and stick your head in the beer compartment and then do a Linda Blair and look straight up. Use a flashlight. You'll the see the screws to remove. See n' do. Plug n' play. Go git 'em!

Great find, Reg! That was awesome! I loved especially how her tongue action was timed with the la-la-la-la part of the lyrics.
