Fairbank - agreed, unfortunately im in the lack of skills category, so if you could offer some practical advice that would be great. I looked at the schematic, might aswell be latin.
So, any suggestion? Other pointing out the obvious?
I'm ok with making mistakes, I just don't want to make too many of them! Lol, but I wanted personally tell you that this site is top notch, its my go to when Im in a jam, your like my appliance hero! You're a funny guy too! Keep up the good work!
You know, i hatet o admit how stupid i am, but it ended up being the damper.....
I didnt take the damper housing off, i just peeked in there and could of sworn it was open. It wasnt....
So, dumbness strikes again, but im glad i figured it out, thanks to all that chimed in, your insight is invaluable!
Initial complaint was temp in both freezer and food section fluctuating, food temp around 50 degrees.
I tried to do diagnostic mode, its a single display control panel with no other buttons other than the +/- temp buttons.
So I get it in diagnostic mode, the display is blinking 0. According to the tech sheet, I then inputted the test I want to select, the display is supposed to start blinking again, and then im supposed to hold down the "HOLD" button for 3 secs??
So on the control panel, there are no other buttons other the +/- temp buttons, on the dispenser panel, there is the water filter reset button, that says hold for 3 secs to reset, so i thought maybe thats the button the tech sheet is referring to, but nothing.
So, I kinda figured the mother board was the culprit, i replaced it, got the call back that food section is around 60 degrees, the freezer is getting to 0 degrees, now they're telling me that the ice dispenser is not dispensing cubes or crushed.
So, am I missing something on the diagnostics?
Maybe some weird wire problem? Bad Thermistors? (Didnt Properly Check)
All fans are running, I figured that if the freezer is getting down to 0, that the seal system is prob good, someone told me that the comp might not be starting up all the time, but I dont see any evidence of that.
