My defrost system is not working on my frigidaire frige (PHSC39SSEE3). I changed the thermostat, cold control and the main power board. The heater seems to be good.I checked it and tested 28ohms. I don't know what to do. This model does not use ap5176342. Whats my next step?
Answer Sal., You do have a damper assembly 241518501 but thats not the issue at this point anyway. The "new" control 240596704 deetermines when and how often the refrigerator defrosts. With all tghe control components you've replaced, your best bet, would be to start at the defrost heater ans program a "forced defrost" cycle and check for voltage into the heater(check from heater wire to chassis ground) from the control, if you have the voltage, it will confirm a control and wiring issue, or a possible heater failure. Good Luck
My defrost system is not working. I canged the control unit, the main power board and the thermostat. I checked the heater and get a reading of 28 ohms. I spent a lot of money and have no idea whats wrong. Can you please help?
Answer Hello Sal. If the main power, control board, and the defrost thermostat 5303918214 are new, and the unit does not defrost, you will need to look for bad wiring on the unit. If all of the wiring is good, then the only thing left is the heater 242044113 and you may be getting a false reading. Besure and make sure the wires are good on the unit. Hope this helps.
