Default Temperature variations in refrig/frezeer
Model Number: GLRS263ZDQ0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Whirlpool GLRS263ZDQ0 refrigerator. Ther was a power spike 5 years ago which took out the ACD, which was replaced. I understate there is a upgraded ADC for this model. I noticed wide variations in the temps of both the fridge and the freezer, so I replaced the refrig thermostat. This seemed to work for a few days (although for a while the freezer was down to -10 degrees F), but now I noticed the temp of the refrig was about 80 F and the freezer about 75 F. I turned off the dails and then turned them back on to an average setting, and the temps are now coming back down. Would the defrost cycle do this or is something else likely wrong?

If every thing shuts down during the failure, I would replace the fridg control AP394661, most probable failure.

That is the part I already replaced. Could it be the freezer control? or ADC thermostat? After resetting yesterday by turning off and then on, I noticed this morning that the fridge was down to 48 deg F and the freezer at 22, still too high, but better.
Thanks

You might have an intermittent adc control. That's the item I would replace based on the failure of everything. Only two things that would cause that except a burnt wire someplace associated with those items, cold control and adc.

Just checked again and the fridge is up to 65 degrees, very annoying.
After a power spike 5 years ago, the ADC was replaced, but the unit still didn't work, and it was mothballed until now.
I read elsewhere on this forum that there is an upgraded ADC available-orange instead of white. Were there issues with the white version that maycause these problems?

We are going nowhere on this without meter checking, might want to buy one so you can verify source of failure.
