DA47-00095E arrived with a piece of white foam glued around the sensor end. In the picture you have removed it. When I went to take the old one out it had the foam in tact. Should this sensor be installed with or without the foam on the sensor?
Answer Hello Papillon,
Some of these need the foam and some don't. If you could please re-post with a model number, we can look it up for you and prevent future problems and possibly an additional tear down. The sensor is very particular so we need to look it up to give an accurate answer.
Where is the defrost timer located?
Answer Hello Cal. The defrost timer is part of the main control board located on the back of the unit.
I'm having a problem with the thermostat. The digital reading is showing a cooler temperature than the actual reading. The freezer is working fine. I'm thinking it's the board or the thermostat? Hope you can help me since service calls are so costly.
Answer Hello Edward,
This sounds like a temperature sensor in the fresh food section is out of tolerance. I would list a part number for the sensor but the model number you listed doesn't come up as a valid model number. If you could please double-check the model number on the units' I.D. tag and re-post with the valid model number, we can go into detail for you.
The fridge is not cooling, though the fan is running. I'm pretty sure the defrost is not working properly and has frozen over. I'm thawing about to start thawing it out, but would like to know which parts I should be looking at to make sure this doesn't happen again in the future.
The fridge has worked perfectly for 9 years now, never a hitch. We just moved (on a hot day), and plugged in the fridge. It cooled down and worked perfectly for a while, but now it's just not cooling down. Current temp is 51 degrees. Freezer side is unaffected.
Any help appreciated.
Answer Hi. If there is frost build up on the back wall then you need check that the defrost thermostat is closed when in frozen states. If not then you need to replace the defrost thermostat part # DA47-10160H. The sensors should ohm out to 5.5k ohms @ room temperature. The sensor part # DA32-00006W. The upper sensor is part # TJDA32-10109W. Ohm the heater part # DA96-00020Q for resistance and not an open or shorted issue. You have to buy the evaporator /heater in an assy. This is the only way the manufacturer allows purchase of the heater assy. Unclasp it from the evaporator assy. if needed. If all theses ohm good then replace the main board part # DA41-00134F. Thank You.
