Follow up.... The fresh food evaporator thermistor was off by 20 degrees to low.  I'll pick up a new one tomorrow. 

 

Side bonus to pulling out the ff coil to get to the sensor. I had been having water collect at the bottom of the ff section ,  I found the drip tray under the evaporator was rusted and had pinholes in it. after wire brushing it , it turned into about 10  holes in the pan  ranging in size from pinhole to 1/16 inch holes.   

 

 I sprayed the rusted parts with rust converter and coated the whole bottom of the pan with marine epoxy. Not gonna rust out again.  :>

I'll  unload the freezer section and shut it down to test all sensors tomorrow. 

 

I would like some one to explain the lag in display readings if possible.  

 

My job as senior tech in the hvac biz , has me on occasion telling my techs to " Ignore what you think you see happening. ..... the circuit board is lying to you !!!!  this is what is actually  happening........"

 

What I am looking for is not a " dude check your sensors" answer . I know that i may have a bad sensor in the mix. I will address that. I have the service manual and it will be fixed.  

 

I am tapping into the sage fridge wizards who  know the inner workings  of this beast that don't get printed in the manual.  

 

 

What I want to know  IS the temperature display showing me  the wrong things by design ? i know people would freak if they could see the real variances in temps in real time in the fridge. 

 

If no sage wizzards happen to zip by .... the box will be fixed .

 

Thanks

ok , new data.....   i attached a remote probe thermometer to the sensor wire. lowered the box setpoint to 34 degrees just for giggles.....

 

after an hour the remote is reading 34 degrees . the in fridge display is still showing 44 . power cycle fridge display now reads 36. remote thermometer reads 35 . 

 

So i'm gonna say  not a bad sensor.   any suggestions?

However sensor mass doesn't account for a displayed temp jumping from from a display of 70 to 40 just by reseting the control. 

 

I do intend on replacing all the sensors this is a 2007 and in my experience with commercial chill water temp sensors ( very similar enviroment to fridges) , if you get 7 years out of one your lucky.  so time to replace all i think.  I just gotta find the right part . My model # is a  no go at mr. samurai 's part store.

 It is likely that something is miswired.  Unit diagram is here http://dms.hvacpartn.../00/38ed-1w.pdf

 

Do you by chance have a transformer in the control box with the contactor and new capacitor?
