Hi I wrote earlier about my freezer. So the compressor is getting power and is hot to the touch. I took a temperature reading inside the freezer and it was 20 degrees Fahrenheit. But all our food was soft and thawed. So what do you think could be the problem. Thanks for your help again.
You will want to check to see if there is frost on the evaporator coils. If there is impacted frost on the coils then the unit has a defrost system failure and you will want to you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I need to order part #216649313 but in the picture, it doesn't show any wire coming out. I had to cut the wire to get it of the freezer but need wires to hook back up. Is it wired?
Answer Hi Jbp. You can use the terminals part # TJMA02589-1 and part # TJMA03018-1. Along with a crimper tool part #MA-30428 to reconnect new ends on the wire. You can use needle nose pliers to break away the side walls of the relay control to visibly see the center locking tabs on the original terminals. Use a pick tool to reach in and relieve the connector as you pull the wire off. Then use butt-splices to reconnect each wire together again. Butt- splice part # TJMA02522-1. Controller part # 216649313. Thank You.
