My freezer was left open about 4 inches for a day and now my lower and upper fridge sections do not cool at all. It runs and the light turns on. Do I need to replace this part or just the Lower Thermostat #2200859?
Answer Hi Ka. The best thing to do is to shut the control off. Raise the ice maker bail arm. Remove the freezer shelf and the food. Put the food in a covered clothes basket just long enough to clean the freezer inside cavity. Dry all completely with a towel. Turn the freezer on and make sure the evaporator fan motor part # 4389142 runs. Keep an eye on the floor to make sure there is no drain pan overspill and floor issues. Make sure all food is place in the bins correctly and the door gaskets close correctly. The control(s) should be at mid point. The freezer should be at 0°. the fresh food should be at 37-47°. Thank You.
Before I start tearing things apart, were would part # AP4303701 go? Thanx
Answer Hello Dan. You will need to remove the back wall inside the freezer to access and replace the bi-metal 2321800. It is located on top of the evaporator coils in the unit. Hope this helps.
