Freezer sections appears to be operating fine, but the refrigerater section is not getting cold enough to maintain cold temperature.
Answer Hi Paul. Is the condenser fan motor turning fine, part # 833697. Is the condenser coils plugged? Coil cleaning brush part # is TJ103. Is the center divider Hot or regularly warm. If really hot- then the previous statement is true. Is the evaporator fan turning up to speed? Part # is 482469. If these parts are OK, then the cold control has a "dead-spot" and cannot regulate the compressor run time as usual. Part # is 819470. Thank You.
Freezer is not getting cold enough ice cream isn't solid. I noticed the refrig is running all the time. I also noticed that the wall that divides the frig from freezer is very warm
I appreciate if you can give me some guidance on this
Answer Rob, First thing you need to do is, roll the refrigerator away from the wall. Unplug the power cord and remove the access cover on the lower portion of the back panel. Vacuum, and clean out all the lint, fuzz and debris, that has accumulated on all the components and the area. Plug the power cord back into the outlet and check the condenser cooling fan for proper high speed operation 240334002. You're not transferring heat properly, and getting irratic temperatures and a warm mullion strip, due to poor compressor compartment air circulation. Thanks, and Good Luck.
How do you check part # AP3120051 (cold control)
Answer Hello Bill, the control should read closed at room temperature. You can put the rod into a cup of ice and after a few minutes you should get a open reading. Think of it as a light switch. When it's warm the light is on, when it's cold the light is off. Hope this helps!
