Greetings Esteemed Appliantologists,
Buoyed up by the recent success of our dishwasher repairs, I now go to tackle the side-by-side fridge in my Samurai Fortress (garage), where the beer is stored. This thing has become so cold that all other bottles have shattered in the fridge side (the inherent goodness in beer and homemade pickles protects them, and the Honey Badger homemade marmalade don't care either... sparkling water stands no chance).
Infrared thermometer (long story) says "-22F" in freezer and "8-11F" in fridge. Since I'm not on the moon, that sounds too cold to me. Although I used to live in Minnesota.
Model # is 25350683000. Date of manufacture lists 2000.
From reading here, it sounds like this is likely:
-cold control (located at top of freezer)
or less likely
1. Does anyone have a tech manual for this fridgy? I don't find anything in "Downloads" nor too obviously on Google.
2. Is there a diagnostic sequence that I should attempt?
3. Regardless of the above, is there an easy way test the cold control (e.g. set it low but not off and test continuity or something)?
Thanks much in advance,
