Hello Samurai

You helped me pick out the correct start device kit which worked perfectly. Model # KSRG22FKWH04. My problem now is the freezer freezes somewhat while the food side is not cool enough. The compressor fan is working. The fan by the coils is working.Some frost on the coils. I did feel the heating element work.Not alot of cold air blowing over to the refrigerated side. The ice maker on off switch blinks twice over and over.It has done that for quiet awhile though. I'm thinking it may be the electronic control but what do I know? Help   Thanks

You need to use a third party like photobucket and post the link to the picture on the forum.

It looks like the frost pattern is full. You said you are getting very little airflow to the fresh food side correct? With the panel back on, feel the air coming in the fresh side, and open the freezer door to see if it feels like you get more air when it's opened. There is a return vent on the left wall above the crisper drawers that has been known to freeze up, which causes low to no airflow in the fresh food. I would also peel back the edge of the each door seal with the doors closed to make sure all the lights are turning off when the doors are closed. A screwdriver or something flat will make it easier to pull the gasket back when you check the light.

I checked with the panel on with the same low air movement with door opened and closed.Put my camera in the freezer and recorded that the light went out. When I replaced the compressor starter the fridge was defrosted with the same low air movement.

If i was there, your description of the symptoms would be fine but from afar I need more than "the freezer freezes somewhat while... etc" So, can you give us temp readings?

What are the fridge and freezer control settings? If your freezer is at the proper temp, then I would suspect incorrect damper (freezer) setting. If the heater is warm while the fans are running, or the heater runs too much, I would suspect ADC board.

Smart.

Thank you for this nugget.

How do I check the lower vent in the fridge? How do I check the upper damper?

But before you go changing parts,  with the Evaporator fan running see if there is any air coming out of that dampener (when working properly air is suppose to be coming out when the fan is running).  A small mirror is also helpful to see if it is frosted over.

The lower vent is a return vent where the air circulates. Usually if it is frozen up you will see ice built up in the vent. The vent cover can be pulled off.

freezer is -9 and you said it "freezes somewhat"? That doesn't add up.

Some air is coming out of the dampener.I looked at it and it seemed fine.A rod adjusts the opening by sliding the freezer slider. No blockage.  There are two sliding controls in the refer.RepairClinic Item # 1175562.  One for each side of coarse. Could this be the problem? I also see the defrost circuit board located somewhere.

Does someone have the schematics for a Kichenaid KSRG22FKWH04? I'm thinking maybe this is the problem because of this video having had to replace a starter relay allready.http://youtu.be/Toy-T7wLEuM ?     I apologise is this does not make sense because of the meds I'm taking
