Our freezer quit. I replaced the temperature controller and now the freezer runs all the time. Will get to a negative 7 degrees at level 5 setting but doesn't seem to ever shut off. I can turn the thermostat to a warmer setting and the compressor shuts off but once it turns back on continues to run.
Answer Hello John,
It sounds like you have installed a defective temperature control 216714601 or it has been installed incorrectly. If the long tube on the temperature control is not properly exposed to the interior temperature, it will not cut off properly and will continue to run until it sees the proper temperature.
When freezer is set at warmest tempeture it will not shut off, All seals are good, Freezer is only 1 year old
Answer Hello Tony. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the controller 216954222 is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
