My freezer compartment will not hold a constant temperature. It will range from 10 below to 38 above zero and it appears to cycle throught these temperatures 3 to 6 times per day. Is there a defrost timer that maybe defective that I can replace? The unit is only 8 years old
This unit does not incorporate a defrost timer. The unit uses thermistors and a control board. You will also want to check your condenser fan motor for operation and check to make sure that the condenser coils are clean. You will want to do a resistance check on the thermistors WR55X10025 which should be 2.7K at room temp. If not then you would need to replace the thermistors. If the thermistors check ok then you would need to replace the main control board WR55X10942.
