Hi the L1 op is an error code which refers to the high limit switch being tripped, this means the cooling unit is getting too hot..........has it been cooling properly prior to this error code? and with a volt meter, please check the dc voltage comming into the refer.........Do you see a black plastic box attatched to the cooling unit in the rear? does it have a red light on it, and is the light on?
. thanks, ***** ***** an intermittant control issue lets do a test, check the temperature in the freezer and box prior to this test........disconnect the thermister, inside the box, up at the top on the right fins is the thermister, follow the wires to a plug, unplug it, and the light will go off..........the test is to make sure the cooling unit is operating properly, this allows the unit to run without thermostatic control, and see what the max. cooling capacity of the cooling unit is........run it like this and then check temps in the morning....then plug it back in. is this something you can do?
and are the fans comming on? in the rear
do you mean fans not running?
thanks, ***** ***** refer in a slide out, with an upper vent door?
thats a good thing, open the upper door, and you will see (look down) the fans, follow the wire up and you will see a thermostat, take the wires off of the thermostat, and hook them together, see if the fans come on. Has it been a while since you noticed the fans weren't working?
they have had much problems with that refer put in a slideout, and the venting as the heat needs to get out , and without it going straight out the roof, many things have been tried,,,,,,,,, we need to get thoes fans working this may very well be why the hi limit switch is tripping and giving you the code. You need to remove the cover, and reinstall it in the winter time. But for now you need to remove it, cut it, ect.........do it in such a way that you can reinstall it..
tell you what lets step back a bit, as were on another tact right now, we may do this later, if the refer is operational, and you food is not spoiling, plug it back in now ,and tomorrow, lets get the fans working, and test, and we will go from there. thanks
good morning, just want you to know I'm here to assist..........Michael
good morning, sorry for the delay, my internet has been down, cooling well, did you check the dc voltage comming in when the code was flashing? with the fans running with wires you need to replace the thermostat, these fans are critical
