  1. Viking model DFFB304L standalone 15.9 cuft freezer. Issue: Freezer trips the Thermistor alarm but also continues to run constantly. Thermistor seems to work correctly. Usually immediately upon plugging in, freezer beeps 5 times and the temp scale flashes left-to-right indicating thermistor alarm. If I clear the alarm, it usually trips almost immediately again. Sometimes it will not trip for a few minutes to few hours, but this is less common. Service Manual indicates that thermistor alarm is triggered by an OPEN circuit at thermistor, which also should cause the compressor and fan to shut off. However it continues to run constantly with alarm tripped. Pulled thermistor while power on to simulate OPEN circuit, and it shuts off compressor/fan immediately. Tested thermistor resistance at different temperatures and compared to book values and it is very close at all temps ranges. Tested both with thermistor removed from freezer and while installed using digital multimeter. Entered the diagnostic mode and display shows what it reads the thermistor temperature. Using the binary code from service manual, confirmed that it is very close to the actual temp (tested with IR gun), so seems that the computer is reading the thermistor, and reading it accurately. Also as I keep door open, the value changes so it seems to be reading constantly and updating. However alarm is still triggered during before, during, after this diagnostic test. Question: Service Manual indicated the only reason for thermistor alarm is if it detects OPEN circuit, but freezer runs constantly, and testing with multimeter and diagnostic mode seem to indicate the thermistor is operating correctly and that the computer is reading the value correctly and consistently. Is there any other failure mode that someone is aware of that would trip the thermistor alarm? Furthermore, any ideas what the issue could be, and how I could diagnose? If it is a problem with one of the PCBs, I have the wiring and PCB diagrams, what should I test to look for an error on the computer?
  2. I have ice building up in the bottom of the freezer compartment on my Samsung RF4287HARS French Door Refrigerator, below the pull out drawer. It will build up to about 3/4"-1" thick and then impedes the closing of the door. Every 4-6 weeks, I need to remove the freezer drawer, melt and chop the ice and put everything back in. I have been doing this for three years on a 5 year old fridge. Samsung Customer Service is ABSOLUTELY NO HELP. What causes this? And can I fix it myself?
  3. Amana Model # ASD2522WRS01 Ice Maker leaking into bucket Makes and dispenses ice--cubed and crushed--just fine Leaks less but some when turned off by lifting internal "full" shutoff arm Leaks more when turned on (almost enough to freeze around the spinning cube "feed" rotor down the center bottom of the bucket) Water dispenser quit working over a year ago; replaced filter and it worked intermittently, then quit again; don't care about that but mentioning in case it's related; freezer made ice well without leak for at least a year since water dispenser quit Troubleshooting so far: Water pressure good; condenser coils clean Tested Water Valves lower back of unit: Green Valve: 250 ohms Red Valve: 200 ohms (not digital so approx.) Raised freezer setting slowly after a good thaw and clean (was sub-zero) to where it fluctuates between approx. 0 and +10 F. That was 2 weeks ago. Icemaker may be leaking at its own shutoff valve (inside black housing below the timer wheel--just behind the labelled cover) Don't mind paying $80+ for a new unit but don't want to waste that if it's the valves or something else. Can someone confirm: Next step swapping out the ice maker unit with a new one?

  17. Hi: Whirlpool Refrigerator Dual Evaporator WRF989SDAM00 I have been trying to get this working properly for a while now. Initially I determined a leak, found the leak on the RC evaporator and repaired it. Held 100 PSI nitrogen for a couple days, vacuum, and recharged with R134a 5.5 oz. Now it does this: On warm startup the refrigerator section cools down as it is supposed to as I understand. This unit cools one evaporator at a time. So the RC goes down to around 36.3F or so on my K-type thermometer at the RC fan output. That seems normal enough because the front panel setting is 37F. So then it goes to cool the freezer section. I see the freezer temp coming down on my second Ktype thermometer lead at the FC evaporator outlet, but does not ever get the freezer section cold enough. Front panel setting is 0F for the freezer. It goes down alright into the 40F and under area. But not lower. My suction pressure was a little too high seems to me. Would not go below 18 to 20 PSIG. I removed some refrigerant gas so it is drawing down to 6 to 10 PSIG now. But that is not the solution. It seems to me the compressor is just not drawing down enough to reduce the suction pressure to near 0 PSIG where it needs to be. So here's my question for now. What is the DC voltage into the compressor start inverter supposed to be doing during all this? The 120VAC into the compressor start inverter is solid. The 3-6 VDC into the inverter just stays at 3.4xx all the time, no matter what. Shouldn't this be varying to increase the compressor speed and therefore draw the suction pressure lower? What am I thinking wrong or missing here? I got this for nothing and as a project but would really like to troubleshoot it correctly. Thanks for any ideas/experience.

  23. Thermador freezer T24IF70NSP/02, cools but does not freeze. Replaced starter relay and capacitor, compressor runs. Evaporator fan runs. Condenser fan does not run. I assume the condenser fan is my problem. Any help appreciated.
  24. GE Monogram ZISS420nmcs, side by side cabinet depth unit. condenser is in the "ceiling" of the freezer compartment. Water is leaking, and freezing, from the ceiling of the freezer. Started making a terrible noise (fan was hitting the ice). I have removed all screws but cannot seem to remove the ceiling panel. There is a small opening, I can reach in and feel ice above the ceiling. I suppose I can fix the symptom by letting all of the ice melt and simply turning off the water to the ice maker. Any better suggestions? TIA !!
