Can someone please point me to where I can find how to check if there is a problem and how to diagnose/fix it?
Left the door open and temp in the refrigerator part went up to 50F. No alarm. Fridge is 2 years old. So far no other problems. Thanks

No alarm.
I don't believe your machine has a door alarm. I don't have the tech sheet for that exact model but I checked a similar model and there's no door alarm.

I got lucky and found the tech. data sheet for it Rick, I'm attaching it below.

Looks like it does have a door alarm, In Service Test Mode the first step says: 1. Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad.

Here's the owners manual: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7c5g0cpj99yj5da/KRFF305ESS00.pdf?dl=0 On page 11 it shows you how to turn the Alarm ON and OFF, you may have yours OFF.

Thank you Jake! Used the manual and it now works. The sound is very faint but at least present. Thank you
