Frigidaire PHSC39EESS5 SS side by side.
We started seeing food spoiling way too quickly. I set the refrigerator temp to 33 (the lowest it will go) and freezer is set to 0. At least thats whats showing on the digital readout. The freezer section keeps stuff frozen quite well. The refrigerator section using two thermometers stays at 43. Thats whole 10 degrees more then what it is set at.
lights - they turn off, can see them off when slightly opening the door
damper - removed the cover and observed it working while I change the thermostat
return vent - all clear
evaporator fan - removed the cover in the freezer section and the fan is spinning fine
condenser coils - there was a bunch of dust there, ok, more then should be all cleaned with vacuum and long brush - no temp change.
condenser fan motor - turns on fine and spins well with no noises etc.
condenser - sounds good - frezzer is cold so it has to run good
door gasket - its a bit squashed on the corners but its only 5 years old, maybe the seal is not good, looked ok
cooling coils - its frost free model - there is some frost on them, nothing excessive, I guess, not sure if thats too much?
The only thing I can think of is the thermometer inside is broken showing 33 degrees while its 43 in reality. The damper does not close wide enough and stay open long enough? Or the door gasket needs changing? I'm out of ideas.
