Thanks Gene,

The refrigerator will cool to 36 on freezer side and 56 on fresh food side. On the control pad the little red light for the Defrost is on and will not go out with changing temp.and it has ben running for 24 hours straight.
Frost on the back wall of freezer.The fan motor near the compresser run slow but its on.How about the thermostat sensors or defrost heater ?How do you remove them to check.just pull on the wires .

thanks for trying to Help, Woodie

Hi Woodie,

Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the cover from the main control board on the back of the fridge. Remove the wire from the J9 terminal. Measure the resistance between this wire and the wire connected to the J7-9 pin at the control board. The normal reading suppose to be no less than 22 Ohms.

Unplug the J1 connector and measure the resistance between the wires connected to the J1-4 and J1-5. The normal reading suppose to be (if the temperature inside the freezer is about 36F) between 12 to 16 K Ohms.

Post the results.

Gene.

There is nothing wrong with the defrost heater and the overtemperature thermostat.

On what scale did you set the ohmmeter when you measured the sensor resistance between the J1-4 & J1-5?

Hi Gene,
Set on 200 scale and it has been run about 4 days straight and the fan motor near the compresser is turning slow.How about freon R134 ? Also did a control diagnostics test with the COLDER/WARMER pads and all looked good.
What NEXTS Thanks, Woodie
