In Topic: PSC25NSWA Freezer Temp Fluctuating

02 July 2013 - 09:24 AM


I've been following the freezer temp, but I'll monitor the fridge too and post what I find.
Thanks


Good ideas. I'll get that started and post the results.

Thanks

 

Sorry for not getting back sooner.  I disconnected the ice maker and turned off the water supply and waited for the problem to re-occur, which took a few days.

 

This morning, the problem is happening again and I found the freezer temp setting is -3, the displayed temp shows 5 deg, but the measured interior temp is 18-34.  The fridge temp is set for 36, displays as 45 and the actual, measured temp is over 50.  The Measured temps are read with a real-time infra-red guage.

 

I'm noticing that the fan in the freezer won't turn on, if I depress the door switch.  The fridge fan runs when door switch is depressed.

Any cooling problems in the refrigerator compartment?  Had similar intermittent problems where cooling was affected in both compartments.  Would find a large frozen icicle in the freezer from the front of the ice bin.  Replacing motherboard had no effect.  Had to replace the thermistor at the base of the fresh food evaporator as well as the evaporator cover which contains the dc fan motor.  Hadn't heard back.[/[quote name="PDuff" post="259095" timestamp="1372198943"]Any cooling problems in the refrigerator compartment?  Had similar intermittent problems where cooling was affected in both compartments.  Would find a large frozen icicle in the freezer from the front of the ice bin.  Replacing motherboard had no effect.  Had to replace the thermistor at the base of the fresh food evaporator as well as the evaporator cover which contains the dc fan motor.  Hadn't heard back.

I suggest turning water off to the water valve to completely rule it out as the culprit. Also disconnect the ice maker as oppose to switching it off. This will certainly rule out those two components as I have had ice maker heater problems even with ice maker turned off.  Also did you check your ice dispenser door for air leaks as well as a faulty light switch?  Make sure your condenser coils are clean and compressor fan is running. If all of this checks out okay, we may be looking at a bad board.
