Is there a test to determine if the sensor is bad with an ohms meter? We purchased the unit at a warehouse sale. KitchenAid doesn't want to warranty it because someone removed the model and serial number tag before we purchased it. We don't know a way around that.
There wouldn't be a way around that, the product should actually have never been sold if the model and serial were removed. But that being said, the sensor is hard to test to any accuracy unless it's completely shorted out. Your unit is only a few degrees off so there isn't really a test which will tell you how far off the temperature is.
I am not sure I understand. The diagram and your information are different. The diagram looks like the freezer and I thought you stated that it is located on right side wall of the refrigerator section. I have what I might call curbs that wrap around the upper 3 walls in both the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it under one of those and if so which one?
Now that I know where it is, I see that I have had a very large bag of carrots in front of that sensor. Would that cause the part to malfunction and if so will moving the carrots make the sensor function properly or do I need to do something to make it work properly?
Thank You very much I will wait and hope that all is OK now
