Built In Fridge KSSC48MHS00 Evaporator Fan Runs Slow

24 August 2014 - 07:29 AM

From the work history I see the fan motor had been replaced twice. I went to it and found the fan motor running slowly. the instant I put my voltmeter leads on it, it fired up at full speed. There was no wiring diagram with the unit so I downloaded one from here(Thanks Samurai) and went back with it, and one of these:

Part number: AP3109138

Part number: AP3109138

Installed that, turned the unit on, and everything seemed okay, good airflow into the fresh food section, I heard the damper running until the door was open, compressor, condenser fan all humming along.

I was called back to find the same slow running fan. This time, I checked the fan's voltage at the pc board in the FF section; again the instant I put my second lead into the hole, the fan fired up full speed. I went through all the wiring between the freezer and FF side from the fan to the pc board; one wire that goes from the pc board to the damper motor looked crushed, so I cut out that piece and re spliced it.

The thermistor's resistance was 3.3k at room temperature. 

1. Would a bad thermistor make the fan run slow? It's a single speed 120vac motor.

2. The tech sheet says to check the thermistor, but I don't know what values to look for.

3. When I arrive, the fan is running slow; it's running full speed when I leave, all 3 times.

Does anybody have any Ideas on where to go with this one?


Kitchenaide KSS48MHS00 Wiring Diagram

No joy with the wildcard search, but I entered the whole model# in the google search box and came up with this post:

https://www.google.c...gSU2W8krc4Tw2ow

Apparently though the link in that post has expired. Can anybody help me?

I'm currently trying to figure out why I can't access the stash.

KSSC42QTS02 Ice Dispenser Frost

05 July 2014 - 08:24 AM

This Kitchenaid built-in refrigerator has symptoms of a broken ice door. There's frost on the flap in front of the icemaker and around the bottom of the in door ice bin.

The doors are sealing and the ice door flapper seems to hold(but lightly) against its opening. When ice is dispensed, the door stays open for 12 seconds. That seems like a long time. I saw no broken parts on

the dispenser but to take it apart seems to require bending back tabs of the stainless steel door skin which holds it in. I was not willing to do that yet.

The lady of the house says the 4 of them, all grown, use the dispenser a lot.

Is the delayed closing of the ice door causing the frost issue?
