Both Freezer and refrigerator section stopped cooling, trying to figure out which part to order and replace... any advice in troubleshooting is appreciated...
Answer Hello Boris. Test for power to the compressor and if there is none there, then you will need to order and replace the main control board on the unit. If there is power there and the unit does not run, you will need to check and see if the compressor is bad on the unit. 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
I recently replaced the mother board and the sensors in the fridge & freezer. The freezer is working good now but the fridge temp is 44-47 degrees. what else can I do to correct the problem?
Answer Hello Jesse. Check and see if there is any frost on the back wall of the freezer. If so, It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. 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. 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
