Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble.

I i got you correct, the buzzing noise is coming from compressor or around that area. If yes, there could be 2 probabilities. Either it is faulty compressor relay or compressor. Compressor's usually have 5 years warranty and they usually fail very rare.

This is not an issue with defrost components or temp. control .If you have experience in repairing appliances, could take all precautions necessary and use multimeter - You could do a continuity check on compressor motor and all combination's. An infinity value on multimeter would confirm bad compressor.

On the side of the compressor you will see a box (maybe a cover) remove the cover if it has one and then remove the wire harness. next you will see the relay with the capacitor mounted to it. give the relay a tug and pull it off the side of the compressor. once you have it off pull the capacitor off and then give the relay a shake. If it rattles the relay is bad. if the relay does not rattle the compressor is bad and you will need to call a service guy to replace the compressor.

This compressor relay could cause cooling problems. So, i would not jump on to the conclusion that whether motherboard is at fault or any of the defrosting element. This buzzing or clicking noise is more often from compressor or around that area which makes it more prudent to check compressor relay.

Let me know,once you check those.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Ps - Do accept my solution,if it has been of any help so that i could get the credit for my time.

I would check the water connection under the toe plate....follow the water line that comes out of the freezer door.. check if that is where your leak is coming from..

1.check if the fan inside the freezer is running
2. if ref runs none stop, defrost timer is out.
3. or it could be the high limit that paired in series with the defrost heater
good luck!

This also happened after I changed the water filter. The small black rubber tube that fills the tray was plugged with ice. Instead of hot wash cloths I used a hair drier for a couple of minutes.

Put the unit back into a clean cycle, wait 2 minutes and then push cancel, the door should unlock

It is normal unless there is a lot of dust below your refrigerator blocking airflow. What you feel is hot gas tubes behind the surface of the metal to help reduce moisture around the door frame and door seals that will get hotter should the fan and condenser below refrigerator have a blockage of dust blocking airflow, Sea Breeze.

The light bulb on the water/ice dispenser on our Kitchenaid Superba side by side refrig needs replacement. Easy! Right?
However it is screwed in so tightly and the location is behind the panel is so small, it it very difficult to get a grip on it to unscrew it!
We,ve tried rubber gloves, WD-40 and an Exacto knife(w/ fuse turned off!) and still cannot get this very annoying light bulb out!!
Does anyone have any ideas or can we remove panel it hides behind to get to it!!!???
Thanks for any info on this should be simple issue!!

Permanently place a black coal in your fridge to avoid bad smells.

im not sure about the alarm but im going to assume its a door ajar alarm tilt the fridge back using the adjusters on the front wheels till you can open the doors about 1/4 let them go and it will close its self fridges are air tight and some times when you shut one door the air it pushes will slightly open the other the installation inst say level the unit but its better to have them leaned back the lights probably turn of auto if a door is ajar give that a try and let me know please

this is not a solution, but an explanation- our repair man said that there is a line (tube) containing electric wires that passes from the frig to the door at the bottom of the door, near the hinge. for what ever reason, the line has broken, thus keeping the electric from getting to the motor that dispense ice and water- solution= $700 for a new door; we'll do without
