We bought the frig from Lowes brand new. It ate the first control board 3 years ago and we had it replaced under warranty. We are now a little over 3 years post repair and the same thing is happening: fridge running all the time, back panel of the fridge is icing so I'm sure the coils are getting blocked, freezer is about 15 degrees by infrared thermometer, fridge section is still cold but I know warming is coming, front frame between the doors is hot to the touch, and the filter light reset itself from red to green. That last bit was a dead giveaway for me. That happened last time and the repairman said it was a dead giveaway for a bad control board.
So, is this a common problem? I remember last time the part was on backorder so I'm assuming this is not uncommon, but you know what they say about assuming anything. Why does this happen? I'm quite frustrated. This is an expensive snack for the fridge to keep enjoying! Any thoughts are appreciated!
