Somehow we got disconnected, but both fans are working...
Yes the coils were frosted, but I thawed the coils and restarted cooling
I checked the heater... it measred abt 16 megs. I'll go and check the thermo, if i find it. Are the contacts visible like the heater??
Hey Mr Barry, I went down to check the thermo.... the refrig shut down.
Both fans are off... like in the rest mode :)
Wow what a job... I appears to be an open ckt. I couldn't remove the multipin conn from the rear panel. I assumed the brown and pink wires were for the thermo. I was able to remove the connector (for the heater) and got access to the brown wire. For the pink wire hopefully made contact on the multipin conn. How can I disconnect it from the rear panel?
There should be a lock you can unlock and pull. Be sure the part is cold, you may even have to turn it back on and get it cold. But if that part is reading open and you are sure, then that is your bad part. You can get one at Sears if they do service calls or an appliance parts store, the new part will be a splice in part. If you find that part closed please let me know.If you found my answer satisfactory please login if you are not already logged in and please leave an ok or better rating so that I am compensated. If you have any questions use the reply to expert link.Thanks,Barry
OK, I'll turn it back on. The frost was dipping when I started measurements. How long should I wait for the next test??
If the new thermo is 'spliced on' meaning using wire nuts, should I cut the wires now and make a new measurement. Can I relocate the thermo to get more space to splice??
One other item. Should I be able to feel air following thru the refrig vents??
The refrig, the food section, sounds very quite. Normal??
How long should I wait for the thermo test.
Again, check Sears thermo part. Entirely different, one has a two pin connector, the other, looks like a chalk stick. No quarters
Yep, that's it!! Now I need to find the part #..
Thanks alot for ur time and excellent support. I hope we meet again
