Whirlpool Refrigerator Model #ED5FHAXVQ00

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

Customer is complaining temperatures are starting to warm up.

 

Evap coils are nicely and evenly frosted.

 

High side from compressor is hot.

 

Condenser fan is running.

 

Everything looks pretty good except when I took the back off, I noticed there is a white

plastic case next to the compressor. Of course.....Computer.

 

There doesn't seem to be anything mechanically wrong and I know, on the GE units the computer

can, and usually is the reason for these problems.

 

Have you found this computer to be problematic also?

 

Are there also sensors, like on the GE that could be part of the malfunction?

 

The ref is only about 5 years old.

 

Thanks,

Bruce
