Symptom: Refrigerator stops running and cooling daily and will not run unless unit is unplugged and plugged back in.

Models Effected:RB units with 4 letter model numbers such as RB2055 / RB1944 / RB1844 etc .......

Possible Cause and Diagnostic Procedure.

  • Check Both Defrost Circuits for Open Thermal Fuse.
  • Access Main PCB in compressor compartment and locate CN70 connector.
  • For Refrigerator compartment check for an open circuit by taking a resistance reading between WHITE and GREY / For Freezer side check between BROWN and GREY.
  • If open Thermal Fuse is identified it is recommended to replace both compartment Thermal Fuses with a Bi-Metal as well as both Defrost Sensors.
  • Bi-Metal # DA47-10160H
  • Sensor #DA32-00006W

NOTE:

If one of the thermal fuses fail the unit will not come out of defrost and will only restart when unplugged. Once unit is powered back up the board defaults to factory settings. The unit runs and will go into defrost after 4hrs of compressor run time and never come out until unit is powered down and back up again. Then 4 hours later the same thing and so on.......

I have a question. The sensor is the same part number, but the thermal fuse/bi-metal is part number is DA47-00095E. Is the DA47-10160H the same part? Or should I use the 95E
