The freezer is not keeping temperature. Changed the main control panel and the ice maker works now! Freezer temperature still runs between 0-25. Does it need a new thermostat?
Answer Hello Peggy,
If the fan in the freezer WR60X10146, or WR60X10196, will start back up at full speed when you force it to stop, replace the temperature sensor WR55X10025 in the freezer compartment. If the fan motor starts slowly or has to be bumped to get it spinning at full speed, the fan motor will require replacement.
Fridge temp won't stay at 37 degrees and freezer won't stay at 0 degrees. I assume the Temp Contol Sensor is not working. I can set both and neither will come to the recommended temps. The freezer is at 4 or 5 degrees and the fridge temp is around 31 degrees.
You will want to make sure that the condenser coils are clean and the condenser fan motor is running. With the Refrigerator temp at around 31 degrees you will want to check the damper door in the refrigerator to ensure that the damper is not staying open. You will also want to check the temperature sensors to make sure that they are good. The resistance value of the sensors should be 42.2K ohms at 0 degrees, 14.4K ohms at 37 degrees and 5K ohms at 77 degrees.
