Yes. Removed back panel to thaw ice in drain with hair dryer and also removed panel on rear of unit to remove drain tube to clean.
So taking the sensor housing loose from the back cover in order to remove the cover caused the sensor to fail?? It was working fine before. Or how much time is needed for it to start working again? It has been an hour since I plugged the back in.
What is required to replace the sensor? I had just unclipped the housing and let it hang. Where does the sensor plug in to ?
Geese.... Being the non professional I opted to wiggle the wiring that I had disturbed and priase all Holy the sensor started working...... Wow no parts required!! Thanks for trying sell me something but I guess should expect nothing less from a "Pro"
$20 bucks worth of advise that would have just cost me more $$$
What a joke!!!
So I do believe I told that did I not? Two times in fact.QUOTE:It definitely could have yes. Sometimes just moving the wires around will cause the sensor to make a bad connection inside the sensor or something like that and then it gives off an incorrect resistance and the refrigerator reads the wrong temperature because of it.QUOTE:So there is a little white plastic bullet sensor that clips onto a plastic cover in the upper back right section just to the right of the center vent. This is your sensor for the freezer. Make sure it's clipped in securely and then just give it some time to see if it begins reading the correct temperature. If not and it's reading too warm, then the freezer will just over cool. Not a big deal for a short term problem, but either way that sensor will need to be replaced to get it all working properly again.That is exactly what I said. That doesn't mean you shouldn't replace the part or make sure the connection is secure. I told you exactly what your problem was and you fixed it 100% because of my advice.
