Did a fair bit of research online and it seemed "all roads pointed to" the Thermistor being faulty.  I replaced that part.  Even with fridge temps set at LOWEST number, fridge barely cycles off.  Freezer has food so cold, it has ruined most of contents.  I cleaned 'grate' in lower front to ensure air flow is as good as it could be.  Unsure as to what to attempt next ... any help would be Terrific !

This unit and its "jazz" control are notorious for welding the compressor relay...result is compressor running ALL THE TIME!
To check for this, turn the temps up on the controller till the unit shows "off"...then go around back to the compressor and see if it is still running....if so,there's yer issue.

Thank you

 

On this unit, there are two digital temp controls in front of open doors.  I lowered them til "Off" [ " --  "], and the fridge did cycle off.  I started it back up [again, LOWEST setting].  Fridge cycled back on.  I let it run, waiting for it to cycle off.  When it DOES, it cycles off for a few seconds, then clicks back on.

 

Sound the same ?

pay attention to my instructions .when you turn the unit off, the fan will turn off, and the damper will close ... But the compressor stays running. You must go around back to check and see if compressor is still running.

Fair enough.  When I can get unit far enough back, pull off panel, and verify compressor still running, is that a DIYer repair, or one that requires specialized tools.  I was a licensed finish carpenter and hot rod hobbyist, so I am comfortable with 'normal' tools .....

Thanks, again.

I'm not at home at the moment.  Is that Realy part of the [JAZZ] Control Board  ?  I looked up parts list on link here, and don't recall seeing just a Relay ?

Thanks !


Relay .. not Realy ....

Again, much appreciated.  So, the Controller is about $150 part.  I would simply replace that entire part, correct ... not try to extract the Relay ?

 

Thank you for your attention !

If you are willin to gamble with the food in your fridge, you can try extracting the Relay and replacing it. Other wise the safest bet it to replace with a new board.
