Default water filter malfunction causes short in control panel
Model Number: FRS6L7EES9   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I found water on the shelves in my fridge this morning. I believe the water filter had a malfunction. I changed the filter and didn't notice a problem.
Now the big problem is my duel control board fried and the label panel warped.
I assume I will need a new wire harness as well.
I'm comfortable replacing these items but I do not know what caused the flood. Could the Damper controller or the evaporator fan been the culprit?
I also worry the the base water filter could have just gone bad. If i buy a new one will an o'ring come with it or must i buy that separately?

Thank you for your time

The answer on your first question is: definitely no.

On the other side a bad water filter base can be the culprit. O'ring can not be purchased separately.

- The water filter base Part number: AP3687338

Part number: AP3687338

Default wire harness

Thank you Gene.

I'll order the Duel Digital Control & the water filter base.

I see the wire harness would take some time to get to me; think the likelihood of being able to reuse the same one is good?

Did you see a real damage to the wire harness?

Default more damage than i though

Yes there is damage to the wiring harness. Turns out there was a small electrical fire at the duel control board connector; the wires are fused to the board.

Think the rest of the unit could be damaged from this trauma?

Most likely not, but you'll never know until you'll try.

Yes the duel digital control is flashing 4 on the right side.
I'm told this is the compressor.
Is it safe to say i need to replace the compressor?

Flashing 4 on the right side points to a problem with the damper control.

- The damper control Part number: AP3772850

Part number: AP3772850



Gene.
P.S. Have you replaced the wire harness too?
