PS MY KIDS ALWAYS HOLD THE FRIDG. DOOR OPEN LOOKING FOR FOOD TO GROW
For this issue you will want to check the vent that is in the middle of the left wall of the refrigerator compartment and check to see if it is frozen over. If so then it will need to be thawed as this can be caused by the door being left open too much.
It seem like the unit is always in the defrost mode the center dividing the doors is warm to the touch. Could this be a bad defrost control board or something else?
Answer Hello Tim,
When the center divider is hot it is an indication that the condenser fan motor 5303918635 is not running or the air flow is blocked. When the unit cannot dissipate the heat, it backs up in the sealed system and this is the heat you feeling the center divider.
My fridge stop making ice.
Answer Hello Salim. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Freezer gathers ice on back panel, then everything starts to melt, or defrost. After manually defrosting unit, everything works fine for 3 days, then the cycle begins again. Changed out fan, did not make a difference.
Answer Hello Chris.
It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. If so, 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
