Refrigerator is getting to cold. Set at number three. Shows 40 degrees. Still to cold.
Answer Hello Cliff,
This sounds like a bad temperature control WR9X570. I'm sorry but this part has been discontinued by the manufacturer and no satisfactory substitutions have been provided.
Where is the thermostat located and how do I install it?
Answer Hello Bechara,
Since there is more than one thermostat in a refrigerator, I am assuming you are referring to the defrost thermostat 61006116. To access the defrost thermostat, you will need to remove the rear wall of the freezer compartment.
The freezer coils pack solid with ice and the frig. side does not cool at all. Could it be part #12 the heater - temp control.
You will want to test the continuity of the defrost heater and the thermostat. If they doo not have continuity then you would need to replace the defrost heater and thermostat assembly 61006116. If the thermostat and heater have continuity then you would need to replace the adaptive defrost control 61005988.
The bottom drain clogs with ice. I cleaned it couple of times & this happens on consistent basis in less than a week. Do I have problem with heater & thermostat? or is it something else?
If that is the case, than I know I need to buy your Part Number: AP4072797.
Answer Hello AK. It sounds like the drain is not clearing out all the way. When you clean out the drain, pour hot water through the drain and make sure it flows freely. If not, then there is something blocking the drain line and causing it to freezer over. You may need to use a small plastic pipe snake and clear the drain hose on the unit. If the water flows freely, you will want to check and see if the condenser fan motor 61002038 is running properly to evaporate the water in the unit.
If the heater assembly was defective when the compressor came on would I hear a clicking noise coming from inside the freezer compartment were the fan is located? The noise goes away after about 45 sec. when we open the cover the coils are frozen.
Answer Hi Keith. If you are positive that 1-the noise is from the freezer area, and 2- it is not the fan blade hitting on anything (ice build up) then the only other clicking noise there at the evap. coils will be the thermostat part # 61006116. It comes with the heater prewired. Make sure that you are not hearing the compressor side mounted relay part # 12002794. This is a sign of Comp. run relay failure. Thank You.
My fridge is leaking water,from under neath. The freezer is Icing up on the bottom only.
