Hello Again, Unfortunately after replacing the thermistor and the Control Board, my refrigerator continues to need re-booting to maintain temperature. The refrigerator compartment reaches the programmed temperature (34 degrees) but the freezer never gets cooler than (19 degrees). I can hear the motor running when I place my ear to the unit, so I'm not sure what is going on. Thanks
Answer Hello Roland,
You should pull the unit out from the wall and make sure the fan and the compressor is running. If the unit won't kick back on after the temperature is satisfied, most of the time the issue is a bad relay on the main board. If this is not the case, (since you mentioned the main boards' replacement), the issue could be the start relay on the compressor. If the compressor is running hot, (too hot to hold your hand to), the sealed system could have a restriction that is causing the compressor to trip the overload.
Our Refrigerator and microwave are on the same circuit breaker which is 30 amp but are not plugged in to the same plug. When I do something in the microwave the refrigerator goes off and I have to unplug it to restart it. Does this mean something is wrong with the refrigerator or the wiring?
Answer Hello Deb,
The issue is the wiring in your home. If you check with the installation or owners guide on both the refrigerator and microwave, you will find that both units are required by the manufacturer to be on a dedicated breaker. Putting in an oversized breaker will cause a fire hazard so that is not an option. The only option is to have a separate circuit run to the refrigerator and microwave so it will be a safe, reliable installation.
