      All Appliantology tech members are invited to join in this workshop on all things Appliantological: bidness, customers, tools, troubleshooting, flavorite brewski, whatever. Webcams and microphones are open and live!
      This workshop is also a great time for any students at Master Samurai Tech to bring any and all questions about the coursework. We're happy to walk through any concepts you're having trouble with. Think of it like office hours with your teachers. 
      If you have a specific appliance problem you'd like us to talk about, post it here! We need a problem statement and a PDF of the tech sheet or schematic so we can all see it on screen share. If you have a PDF that isn't already in the File library here at Appliantology, send it to us by attaching it to the contact form. 
      Also, follow this Calendar Event so you'll get notified of new posts here. Look for the "Follow" button either at the top of the topic on desktop or below the topic on mobile.

My father thinks that his KitchenAide fridge runs and doesn't cycle off. I've checked everything that I can on it and am unable to find any problems. I told him that if ran all the time the milk would be frozen but he's convinced that something is wrong with the unit.

Does anyone have the service manual showing how to get this into diagnostic mode so that I can see if there really is a problem possibly with the thermistors or thermostat board.

Any help is appreciated.

First, I'd check (and post) the Fridge and Freezer temperatures,

then get (and post) a picture of the frost pattern of the Evaporator Coils inside the Freezer

Thanks for the tip Reg, but I think you're missing my point.

There is nothing wrong with the fridge. Temps are normal. No frost buildup on the evap coil. I checked all that. The only thing I found was a minor buildup of dust on the condensor coil and I vacuumed that out. I just want to run diagnostics to convince my father that there is no problems.

does it cycle OFF ?

Running diagnostic won't tell him that...

Evaporator frost pattern would tell something

If Fridge / Freezer temps are OK, then turning the Cold Control down a little should turn the Compressor OFF
