In Topic: Whirlpool refrigerator gi0fsaxvy too cold

What would happen if there was a fresh air leak (like the door gasket) allowing warm air into the fresh food compartment?  Theoretically, the unit would respond by sending more chilled air into the fresh food compartment until the temperature at the thermistor was satisfied.    The stratification could be from the increased air flow through the fresh food compartment.  I'm not a professional appliantologist, just throwing a theory out there.  Might be completely off base.

The Whirlpool part number is W10200297.  Do a google search for that - it is still available at a few sites.

In Topic: Kenmore Fridge Error Code

Odd development - I went over to my neighbor's house (the one's that have this fridge) and found that since we did the diagnostic testing, it hasn't produced the error again.  Other than a loose connection on the PCB that I might have jarred when testing voltages, what on earth could have "cured" the fan problem?


Also, I noticed my link in the above post got edited to Appliance Parts Pros - it this our new best source for parts?  I missed the memo...

Thank you.  I know they are constantly updating parts as problems arise.  I have never seen a more confusing parts diagram.  Normally an exploded diagram gives you some hint as to where the parts settle back in the unit.  This one looks pretty random.

Thanks for the replies.


Applianceman - could you tell me more about this freezer evaporator cover you speak of?  A part number or a way to look it up would be much appreciated.  Is this an updated part?



Spannerwrench - thank you for the manual.  Very useful.  I did the testing outlined.  I am getting 10.7 volts between 1-2 on connector 7 which indicates the PCB is supplying power.  I got 2.4 volts between 1-3.  It says it is supposed to be 0 or 5 volts. 


The confusing thing is that when I put it in test mode 1, the first thing it tells you to do is check "windy or no windy" - well, the fan was running.  It tells you to go to 5 if it is "windy" - except there is no 5.  I love translated works, don't you?  Anyway, my suspicion is the motor is running for a little while after the fridge is reset and then binding up, so unless anyone has intervening words of wisdom, I'll be ordering a new motor.


For those that have done this, is repair clinic's video on a similar LG motor going to get me there? - http://www.youtube.c...h?v=4qqa1oAYKUc


And, I am after this part, correct?  Part number: EAU60694510
