We have a 6-year-old Kitchen Aid (model#: KSRS25FGSS13) refrigerator
and it seem to share similar problem discussed in this posting:
There were no one replied in this person's previous posting so I'm
hoping that someone (who might be an refrigerator expert) could help me
out a little bit. Basically this Kitchen-Aid refrigerator (freezer on
side model), frost accumulated in one section near the opening of the
freezer, and water drip on the floor of the refrigerator very often
(like 3-4 days out of a week).. any idea which part might need to be
replaced? Or this refrigerator really need to be retired?? We have a
big family (8 family members) so you could imagine that the door was
closed and opened many times a day -- don't know whether this is
related or not...
Seriously, if we need to replace with another refrigerator, which
brand/model is designed with big family in mind (more durable, last
longer, with reasonable price)?? Any suggestion? What does Consumer
Reports has to say about refrigerator? Thanks!
Good description of the problem and the use.
Frost accumulation near the opening indicates a
poor seal and a poor seal would result in
defrosting and explain the water dripping problem.
Also, the number of people using the
refrigerator, especially if there are young ones
would rapidly wear out the seal. Replace the
door seal. Six years of use is pretty low to be
considering a new refrigerator.
Or donate the refrigerator to a non-profit and
tell them that it needs a new door seal. Then go
buy what you want. Doesn't much matter what brand
as long as it is a standard brand, just get the
features you want.
