My refrigerator has stopped cooling. Cleaned coils,checked fan is working.
Unpluged overnight as freezer was freezing up.
Plugged back in this morning freezer is slowly freezing ice.
Refrigerator side was cold then has begun to to loose coldness all day.
What part is bad? Thank you for your help
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
Is there a procedure to test the cold control (AP3133073)?
Answer Hello Vince. When on, at room temp, the contacts should close to pass power. If not, it is bad. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
