SS side by side refirgerator is not cold temperture is at 7 what do you think is the problem?
Answer Ms. Charleen,
You will want to check the rear wall of the freezer and check to see if there is heavy frost build up on it. 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. 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
Change the panel control. Change all sensor freezer is working fine but the refrigerator temp don't go down or the inside of the it don't get cold. Any idea what it could be.
You will want to check the evaporator fan motor to make sure that it is blowing. If the fan is not running then you will want to check to make sure that the control board is sending power out to the fan. There should be 12 vdc on the J2 connection from the red to white wires. If no power then the issue would be the control board. Also check to make sure that the evaporator coils are not impacted with ice. If they are then you will want to check the defrost limiter to see if it has continuity. If it does not have continuity then you would not need to change it out. You will also want to check the defrost thermistor for resistance. The resistance values should be as follows, 42.5K at 0 degrees, 14.4k at 37 degrees and 5K ohms at 77 degrees. If not within range then it would need to be replaced. If it checks good then also check the defrost heater for continuity. If no continuity then replace and if good with continuity and all other components check ok then you would need a new main control board. 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
