Answer Hello Ray,
If the unit has a cumalative defrost system, it will vary as to how often and how long the defrost cycle takes place. It is also changed by how often the unit doors are opened and how long they are kept open.
Water dispenser and ice maker inop. Have ck'd the dispenser switch-has continuity; freezer light comes on; dispenser valve is good, water pressure is good. What is left to ck? Dispenser control board? Can it be tested?
With both the ice and water not working on the unit, you will want to check the wire harness at the top of the door to make sure that there are no broken or loose wires. You will also want to check to make sure that the dispenser is not in the locked position.
My refrigerator works normally during the winter, but during summer months, the freezer does not freeze well and the fresh food section does not cool as cold as it should, even after I adjust the control to 4 or 5.
Answer Hello Pete,
It sounds as though the unit is not in a climate controlled atmosphere. Refrigerators are designed to operate at their most efficient level when in a climate that is from 70° to 75°F. If the hot coils are in a hot atmosphere, they cannot dissipate the heat removed from the unit back into the room. This adversely affects the temperature of the interior of the unit.
Water comes out without pushing switch. When the push switch arcs in back, unhooked water and water servos because keep running. Both are 110 volts going to them even though switches are all off is it the control board?
Answer Hello Bob,
If the voltage is still being supplied to the valves, the switch (AP3131893) or the bracket (AP2988571) is most likely the issue. You should check the wiring harness where it goes into the door hinge first to make sure there are no shorts in the harness.
LIGHT Bulb in the cooling compartment does not work. I changed the light bulb so I know it's not that. the light bulb is up on top front of the compartment. Help!
Answer Hello Vince, check for 120 volts coming to the light socket. If you have power to the socket and a new bulb doesn't come on, replace the socket 4387478. Hope this helps!
How can I check if the Defrost Contro Board (Part #W10366604) is any good? Freezer Works, but Fridge isn't Working.
Answer Hello Marie,
You will want to look in the freezer compartment and remove the rear cover of the freezer. Check to see if the evaporator coil is impacted by frost. If it is then you will want to do a continuity check on the defrost heater and thermostat. If either does not have continuity then replace that part. If they both have continuity then you would need to replace the Defrost control board. If the coils are not impacted then you would want to check the return duct to make sure that it is not clogged with ice. This is located on the left wall of refrigerator section about midway down.
