I get high readings and thingsstart to thaw (Meat, ice cream, etc). Defroster is working, no ice buildup, changedall three thermistors ( evap, freezer, fresh food), the fans are working. Needhelp

1. Try to reset the control by: push and hold Freezer Warmer, Food Colder and Express Thaw buttons simultaneously. The thaw light should blink and go out. Unplug the refrigerator for 20 seconds.

2. Did you clean the condenser coils on the back of the fridge?

#1 I did what you said, pushed the buttons. The 5lb lite came on then the 3lb. blinked and both stayed on, the thaw fan came on and I unpluged it for 20 sec.. I pluged it back in and the express thaw was on for 4hrs.. I cycled through, it turned off. I closed the door and the light stayed off. It went down different but the results were the same.
thanks
#2 I clean them yearly but I got this late and will check tomorrow.

Everthing worked fine on the testing, fans, dampners, communication (board to control), thermistors and reset. The temp is still high 20 and 44. I cleaned the coils, they weren't bad to begin with. Whats left?

Remove the rear panel inside the freezer and check how the evaporator coils are covered with frost. Post the results.

Like I said in the opening question the coils were lightly frosted. This time the bottom part of the coils were frosted. I replaced the thermista and the defrost sensor last summer. I did a defrost test and the heater came on and defrosted the coils. I reset it and put every thing back. I did all the tests again and they passed. I put it into a pre-chill mode which will return to normal on its own. What is pre-chill mode? and what do I do now???

The warm temperature in the fresh food compartment caused by the warm temperature in the freezer. If the condenser and the evaporator fans are running as well as the compressor, and there is normal air flow within the freezer, then there is something wrong with the sealed system.

The pressure inside the sealed system as well as the compressor performance should be checked by a certified tech.
