hi

Randy 43 :

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX iam happy to help you with your question today..that model seems off , its not coming up , do you have any different numbers? how old is the fridge ? is it freezer on bottom ? sxs?

Customer:

Model is MBF226KEB a stack unit with freezer on the bottom. I bought in 2008.

Customer:

Hi Randy

Customer:

I used the cont board troubleshooting instr for the Jazz Card.All the test check good.Question is if the Deforst & Defrost circuit Test

Customer:

check good. Will the heating element also be check to? The instr states defrost thermostat state.

Customer:

Hi Randy

Randy 43 :

does the thermostat show as shorted (closed)? is the frost mostly just on that rear panel?

Customer:

Yes

Randy 43 :

ok thx , to recap the fan runs in the freezer , the rear panel is over frosted , you put into diagnostics and the the thermostat comes up as SH ?

Customer:

S for close

Randy 43 :

thats right sorry , they call shorted as closed , but if all that checks out then the the jazz board is defective , it usually is either the board or the jazz board , if the thermostat is closed then you need to change the board and clear the frost , let it sit for a day .then it should be fine

Randy 43 :

i meant to say it is usually either the thermostat or the board

Randy 43 :

in this case it is the board

Customer:

Board is differant then the Jazz Board?

Randy 43 :

no they are the same thing , i messed up my above post

Randy 43 :

its the jazz board

Customer:

Does the heating element get check with the test of the termostat test too?

Randy 43 :

yes , if the heater is open then the thermostat wont show as closed, ive never seen a failed heater, they are very durable

Customer:

Rany I'm having to go for work now can you please give me little more information on board and jazz card are differant or the same thing.

Randy 43 :

jazz board is the same thing ,as you programmed , dont worry about the board that was me messing up when typing ..if you replace jazz board that will fix the issue

Customer:

Customer:

Randy 43 :
