Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I can help you with this. There is no reset button. Are there light s in the machine right now? sounds? Do you have the model number? Thanks
The light is on inside the refrig. The model number is XXXXX
Thanks. Do you hear any sounds from the back
There is a flashing code on the right side display (where the temp usually displays) of 4.
There is a hum. but no sound of the compressor coming on.
looking up the correct info now.
This means that either a temperature sensor or the main board has failed. do you have a multimeter and some mechanical ability to test fix yourself or were you just looking for a diagnosis?
I do not have a multimeter. I was hoping to fix this. I have everything from refrig in cooler bags trying to preserve, but no one can come out for "a couple of days" due to the bad storm last friday.
Without a meter I can't tell you 100% that it's not a sensor but I will say that boards can fail from surges/brown out ects and sensors don't If i had to guess I would say board. Again a meter would tell us for sure.
I do have an extended warrenty on this, but I cannot even leave a message with the dealer. I could can a board, but I would need to get one and this is Sunday!
That's going to be really hard. You could buy one local on mon.
I could change a board...
where is the board and how is it changed...
Located on back. It has a bunch of wire connectors.
Is it like a computer board were only specific type connecters can match up with certain connectors or is it color coded or something you need to "know" where they go.
No its really straight forward. Just take a quick pic first in case you'r unsure, A little bit of attention is all you need really.
Well, I guess I am on the hunt for this board tomorrow. Where I live, there is not a lot of options to get parts on a Sunday.
Most places really. Sundays are rough for this stuff. The good news is that it should fix it right up and isn't to hard to replace.
Feel free to rate me at any time and you can continue to ask on this even after if you get stuck putting the part in. Just post and I'll be notified.
Thanks for the vote of confidence. I guess I am lucky, a lot of people here have no power and the electric pompany says it may be days until they can be restored. It is 97 degrees today.
Ouch, sounds like you guys got a little lucky in a sea of bad luck.
