Hearing a loud noise from the inside of our Kitchenaid fridge. Seems to come from the top rear area.

Anyone recognize the issue? Repair tips would be much appreciated!

Hi,

It sounds like your air damper motor is broken/stripped and making that noise.

Here's the air damper assembly for your model you can order:
WPW10594329 Control


Remove the cover, remove the 2 screws, pop out the plastic/foam parts, disassemble the electrical connection to the control unit, replace air damper assembly and reassemble.

To remove the cover: You just grab the grill part and pull it off. There will then be 2 screws under it that allow you to take the outer shell off. Then that damper just pulls out and remove the electrical connector to it, then install the new one.

Let us know how it goes.
