Hi Cranberry,

The part your looking for is #8201537. You can see it here.

Threading it through the door is simple if you know the secret to it. First you need to go to hardware store and get something like this about an inch, inch and a quarter. Take a piece of 1/4" tubing with you to make sure the "all-thread" will screw into the tubing snugly.

Now, screw the all-thread into the spout end of the existing tubing (the one in your fridge right now) about half the length of the all-thread. Then take the tail end of the new tubing and thread it onto the left over stub of all-thread.

Open both doors and remove the bottom grill (it's snapped in place) then close the doors. Below the freezer door hinge, you'll see the tubing coupling. Disconnect it and remove the ferrule for use on your new tubing later. Now at the same time, begin pushing the tubing from the top and pulling it from the bottom.

This is a fairly common problem and is likely caused by the failure of a concealed fan that is responsible for distributing cooled air from the freezer section to the refrigerator side.
SearsDirect parts department has full information on your KitchenAid fridge at the link below:
The fan I suspect is shown here:

Looking at the various pages should give you an idea if you consider this a DIY task or call a pro.

Red light flashing and NO ice. I used a hairdryer to hopefully clear the frozen waterline and it made 1-ONE row of ice and stopped and the red light still flashing. help!

Sounds like your condenser fan isn't working...Take the back cover off to see if there's anything stuck in the fan blades. Usually when the fan stops, the compressor & tubing that runs between the doors get really hot. You may also want to clean your condenser coils.

It means the mullion heater is working. The strip between the doors is called the "Mullion" on "Kitchen Aid" this is part of the refrigeration system. Known as a "Yoder Loop".

Your water hose that connects to the back of the freezer may be loose. Move the fridge out away and in the back make sure it is tightend.

Let me know if it helped :)

What I would do first which is very simple is leave the fridge on for a bout 20 min. Unplug it, pull it out, pull the bottom cover off and place your hand on the compresser, if it is very hot, compresser is pooped. If it is not warm at all then I would first check the thermostat. If the thermostat is closing properly then you can check for power at the compresser by pulling the little black cover off of where the wires enter the compresser. If there is voltage there 120v then unplug the fridge and pull the connectors off of the terminals on the compresser, remembering where they go of corse. Between two of the terminals you should get a low resistance. Say 1.5 and through another set you should get a higher one. Say 4.6 then through the last test you should get those two nembers added up 6.1 if your meter says OL at any time that means you have an open winding and the compresser is done for. If your numbers do not add up then you may have a shorted winding and your compresser is done for. Good luck

I would look for a fuse somewhere. If you've found the board, simply smell the board. One of the few good things about an electrical short (creating the smell), is that the smell sticks with the problem.

When checking the power to the motor, consider that there is typically a temp sensor that tells it when to kick on and off. If the entire system isn't running, it likely won't ever get to that point, thus no power reading.

Follow the smell.

Also, the good thing about motors is that you can hook up just about any power to it (within reason), and "bump test" it. You'll just bump the power to it, to see if the fan bumps on. Not something you'll want to do for an extended period of time, but it'll serve its purpose.

if evaporator fan inside refrigerator is running check for blockage at condenser fan, if no blockage condenser fan is the problem

KitchenAid... | Answered on Aug 28, 2012

Usually when a refrigerator is beeping it is due to the door being ajar or something caught in the seal or lastly a fault in the electronics which is rare but possible. It could also be due to the hinges being worn and being warped as well due to weight put on the door over an amount of time. Is it consistently beeping? How many times is it beeping? If you push the door closed completely does the beeping noise stop? I await your reply.
Thank you,
