I'm trying to help a friend by phone on his kenmore side x side. It frequently warms up and allows all to melt. He says that it restarts when he turns the control (in beer side) to full cold and back. It's been doing this for several months and when it cools it goes all out and freezes everything. I'm leaning toward the defrost control board but am not sure what function the thermostat plays in this unit.
Is the thermostat control (at the knob) just a potentiometer to tell the board what to do or does it still have some thermo control? The machine does not have ice on freezer wall or anything that I would look for as a sign of defrost heater failure. I would have expected a unit problem to have progressed toward failure by now.
I don't work on fridges at all now and only ever worked on GE so this unit is not familiar to me.
