I had the freezer one closed, but not the fridge. It would seem odd for both fans to go out, and also for the fridge section to stay frosty on the element, and the bottom element is barley cool to the touch.
New motherboard installed.
The fan in the freezer now works, and the control panel for the freezer part no longer flashes -2 but actually reads the correct temperature.
Now the issue is it is just not getting very cold on the freezer side. I reset it at 9 AM this morning, and the freezer has gone from 65 degrees to 54 degrees. I have also tried the power freeze setting, increasing the fridge temp some, none of these are helping make it go any faster.
There was some ice build up on the tube that exits from the ceiling of the freezer, but it was only frozen about 3 inches, the coil was completely clean.
Looks like the inlet pipe has maybe 6 inches of frost/solid ice, this morning only had maybe 3 inches, it goes past the bend now a few inches.
The fridge is still working flawlessly, i can bump it down to 34 degrees, or up to 46 no problem.
Does the coolant just flow in a one direction loop, or is there a valve that controls how much to the freezer and fridge?
If it's one tube through the whole system and it's either low, or blocked, i'm confused how the fridge works flawlessly. The freezer isn't even getting down to the fridge temps.
