Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
Did both the refrigerator and freezer section warm up or just one of them? Are they room temperature now? And do you hear the refrigerator running or is it 100% silent?
OK so the lights are on and the unit is 100% silent. That means you either have a bad thermostat or a bad defrost control board. The thermostat is part number 13 on the diagram below and the defrost control board is part number 4 on the diagram below.

They are both located in the ceiling of the refrigerator above the control panel. To know which one is at fault, you would need a multimeter. If you take the control panel down, there are 2 wires going to the thermostat control. Unplug the refrigerator first, then disconnect these 2 wires. Test continuity between the 2 terminals on the thermostat. You should have continuity through the thermostat between these 2 terminals and if you do not, replace the thermostat control. If you do have continuity, replace the defrost control since that is the only other option and that small board can not be tested.
