Hi I have an electrolux icon fridge that keeps flashing 2 deg. on the freezer temp no matter what I do. Every time the power goes out the compressor will not start back up. If you toggle the power after an outage the compressor will run for about 2 mins. then shut down. I have replaced the start/ run relay, the mother board, the control panel board/ switch. I have had a repairman come out and find nothing wrong with the compressor - it does'nt get hot, and pulls the right power load when its running. He replaced the start relay and run capicitor and when he left it ran until the power went out again. Then the same old thing happened again. I'm at my wits end with this thing. It's an expensive aplliance and hate to trash it after 5 yrs., but I don't know anything else it could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tnx.
