Kitchenaid 42" built-in fridge starts and stops constantly

29 July 2013 - 04:39 PM

Hi, y'all

I've got a 42" built-in fridge, model #KSSC42QTS02
It runs all the time, or nearlt all the time. I gather that's normal?
What worries me is that it cuts off and on constantly. Sometimes it will run for 5 seconds, then cuts off for half-second, then back on for a minute, then off for 30 secs, off, on for 2 minutes, etc. Maybe it has always dont this, but I notice now because every time it restarts it makes a little chirp like a frog peeping.

Is this normal for a fridge like this? It cools fine. I have the freezer on 4 degrees, fridge on 37. Keeps things plenty cold.

Thanks for any help

Oops I mean Kitchenaid. Brain fart.

And is it possible to clean the coils?
