Greetings, I hope someone can help me isolate this issue.
Freezer: -2 F
Frig: 42-48 F
For about a year now (since I moved in) the fan in the freezer has cycled intermittently for a few minutes, then stayed on. The frig and freezer still worked, so I didn't look into it. Each cycle of on/off on/off lasted about 1 second on/one second off. Now the frig is warm.
When i turned off the frig temp control, the thermostat behind the knob made a rapid clicking noise. then went silent. This didn't seem to be an issue, as it came back on and is working the same as before.
The damper motor, when activated, makes a clicking sound that sounds like something is loose.
The frost on the coil in the freezer is just a light film.
The ice machine makes 3/4 solid, 1/4 hollow cubes (always has for the last year). The ice freezes together in lumps and the ice outlet frosts over, making it scrape when opening the door.
Bad Damper - this doesn't explain the cycling of the fan.
Therm. sending bad signal - I think this works like analog, rather than digital.
Control board is cycling the signal - Not sure
Assuming that it is the control board doesn't explain the loose clicking from the damper.
Do you think that one problem allowed it to work well enough, but that now both problems are causing the full problem. Do I swap out both items?
Thank you for your time and effort. I know it is time consuming answering these posts.
