Damper motor opens and closes continuously running after replacing AP4909015 (5303918476) Adaptive defrost control board. Can you help me with my issue.
It sounds like when you hooked the new wire harness up to the damper assembly you hooked it to the wrong switch. Try connecting the harness to the other switch on the damper and see if that corrects the issue.
MY FREEZER WORKS WELL, BUT THE FRIDG. IS WARM, THE MODULE IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER HAS ICE ON IT, THE SERIAL # IS SL31445789 MFG, DATE READS 2001 . 08
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.
