nonstop running after left door not totally closed for over night
Accidently, I left a refrigerator door not totally closed overnight. The door was enough to turn off the light and let the refrigerator run.
I noticed in the morning and closed the door of the refrigerator which was running. Since then, it ran nonstop. Freezer OK, but refrig kept at 40 F and not below. I turned it off and let defrost for 24 hrs. I noticed there is a lot of ice on the pipe. I turned it on. Now, it still runs nonstop but refrig goes around 10 F (normal should be 20 – 35). Temp adjuster sets high or low does not make difference.
I believe the deforest system is OK because I found ice on the water collect area.
Most likely, it points to the problem with thermostat. do I need replace the controller as well? Please advise.
Thank you in advance.
