KitchenAid fridge too warm, but freezer is OK
Posted 06 July 2005 - 06:26 AM
Because I have read your "Online Refrigerator Diagnostic Guide", I know that the first thing to try is to turn the thumb screw CW to see if the compressor starts. However, I don't know where this thumb screw is.
Unfortunately, I don't have any manuals for it. I would NEVER lose or throw away an appliance manual, but this fridge came with our house, and the previous owners didn't give us any of the manuals for anything. (I think that was just part of their whole we're-divorcing-so-we-just-hate-each-other-and -the-whole-world-in-general mental state that they were in!)
Can you please tell me where this thumbscrew is? Also, do you know if this unit has a simple defrost timer or one of those newfangled "adaptive defrost control boards"? If so, how do I replace it (assuming that's the problem)?
Thank you very much for your help, and for running this great web site!
Also, my wife and I want to thank you for the REALLY FUNNY stuff we have read in your "Wierd Forum Posts" area! We laughed so hard we had trouble breathing! It was so funny that I just HAD to go make a donation to your beer fund right away (can't let those AA guys get to you, after all)!

The heater looks fine (although I'm not sure how to remove it and check it to be absolutely sure). So, I guess that my problem is the ADC board, right?
Thanks for your help.

The fan above the coils is working fine, but I just noticed that there isn't any cold air coming into the fridge from the freezer (through the little passage, at the top). I tried to push a screwdriver through, and I can't. I put my fingers in there, and managed to push open the little "doors" that were closed, but they won't stay open. I wedged the screwdriver in there, to keep them open, and now the fridge has dropped to 40 degrees.
So it looks like this thing (what is it?) isn't opening like it's supposed to. Is there a way to test it?
