Model number LFFH21F7HWG serial number WB12951500
Got a new electronic control panel for it, thought I could pop old one out but looks like I have to take the entire inner door panel off for access to release the clips?
Symptoms: Noticed freezer running a lot, temp set for 5°F. Have thermometer inside that shows temp ranges from 5° to minus 5°. When it calls for compressor, it comes on and after about 1/2 hour I open door and compressor goes off, temp is minus 5°. Seems like compressor only cuts off if I open door when thermostat is satisfied or it goes into defrost. Tried banging on door and tapping on control panel to see if compressor would go off, no joy. Doesn't seem like bad thermistor would cause this problem, only other thing is the control unit. If I open door before temp gets to minus 5°, compressor does not cut off. So now I just go out into garage every hour and open/close door so compressor doesn't keep running. It stays off til temp gets up to 5° and it comes on as it should. Seems like door switch should only function to turn the light on/off but it appears to "wake up" the compressor control circuitry. Weird. Anyway, got this new control unit but I guess PIA to replace it. Got lots of stuff in the freezer.
