My fridge keeps freezing and making ice wich causes everything to eventualy get warm?
Answer Hello Eric. 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
the freezer seems to be freezing fine but fridge is warm. we just moved the fridge. it is said to have worked fine before. what should i check?
Answer Eric, On that unit, if the freezer is fine, then the cold control and evaporator fan are OK, you most likely have an issue with the auto damper
61005993 and/or the air return tunnel cover 61006081. Check and make sure both doors are closing and sealing properly. Remove the crisper drawers and shelves and check the flapper in the return cover for being stuck closed, and interrupting the air flow in the fridge. Then move up to the left rear top corner of the fridge, where the damper is located and check for the air flow into the fridge compartment. Thanks
The fan is been replaced,but the iced keeps building up and is not cooling enough in the cool side. The air is not circulating when is freezes up.
Is it the termostat?
Answer Hello Mario. No, if the fan is not running, it is normal to freeze up because air is not moving. You will need to replace the fan motor if there is power to it and it does not run.
Sometimes the food in my refrigerator will freeze. What will cause this ?
Answer Hello Slonezy,
Three things to check. One is the air return flapper 61006081 at the bottom of the fresh food compartment behind the drawers. It should be in position on the fresh food/freezer separator wall and the plastic flapper should be flat so it can close and seal. These are easily damaged, so if you touch the flapper itself, be careful not to damage it.
The second thing I would check is the fresh food temperature setting. If it's set too warm, the fans won't kick on often enough to circulate cold air and it will settle to the bottom and freeze stuff. Also, if the freezer temperature is set too cold, items on the top shelf will freeze as this freezer temperature air is shared into the fresh food compartment. The temperatures should be set with a freezer thermometer to the engineers' specifications. The freezer compartment should run from 0°F to 10°F without ever dropping below zero and the fresh food compartment should run from 35°F to 38°F.
The last thing that could be an issue is the thermostat 61005438. This one is for serial numbers that begin with 10 or 11. For serial numbers beginning with 12 or above use 61005651.
My refrigerator section is not cooling enough. I ordered part AP4070298 to fix this issue. Is the thermostat that control cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator?
Answer Joe, I doubt the cold control is the issue. If the freezer temperature is proper, you most likely have an issue with the "auto damper" 61005990 (example only) which allows the cold air from the freezer to enter and circulate through the refrigerator. It's located in the uppeer left rear corner of the fresh food compartment and can be removed and tested by heating the temperature bulb with a hot cloth or hair dryer. Thanks and Good Luck
I have put 3 heaters so far in the frig, this time it only lasted 1 week. It keeps on frezzing up. do you think it could be the control assy temp
Answer Larry, What happens to the new heaters, do they burn out ? You need to check the defrost thermostat and heater 61006199 and wiring before you replace the ADC Board 61005988 . The temperature control has little to nothing to do with the defrost system. Good Luck and Thanks
