ELECTROLUX FRIDGE WARM MODEL E42BS75EP DUAL EVAPORATOR

Recommended Posts

28strepair

I HAVE AN ELECTROLUX MODEL E42BS75EP 42" BUILT IN, DUAL EVAPORATOR UNIT THATS DRIVING ME CRAZY !!!

PROBLEM :RUNS FOR A BIT THEN STOPS AND WONT TURN BACK ON  

WHEN I CYCLE THE POWER  THE UNIT THE FRIDGE RUNS FOR ABOUT AN HOUR.   CONDENSER FAN NOT RUNNING   THEN STOPS  

ON THE DIGITAL DISPLAY  THE FRIDGE GETS TO SET TEMP   FREEZER GETS TO ABOUT 17 AND IS SET TO 5 

AS TIME PASSES THE FREEZER TEMP WILL RISE PAST 32 BUT THE FRIDGE DISPLAY TEMP MAINTAINS 37 BUT IN REALITY IT HAS RISEN AS WELL 

AT TIMES THE UNIT WILL RUN WITH THE CONDENSER FAN ALSO RUNNING AT WHICH POINT IT WILL TAKE IT TEMPS DOWN TO SET TEMPS OF 5 AND 37DEGREES

WHEN THE CONDENSER FAN IS NOT RUNNING THERE IS NO POWER TO THE FAN WHEN IT IS RUNNING THERE IS 8 VOLTS 

I CAN HEAR BOTH OF THE EVAPORATOR FANS RUNNING WHEN I OPEN THE DOOR AND HOLD THE LIGHT SWITCH  

I REPLACED THE CONTROL CIRCUT BOARD,  NOTHING CHANGED SAME PROBLEM

I STILL THINK  ITS A CONTROL BOARD , SHOULD I ORDER ANOTHER ONE ?

WHY DOES THE CONDENSER FAN HAVE 3 WIRES , COULD THE FAN BE BAD ? EVEN THOUGH IT RUNS AT TIMES AND SOMETIMES IT MAKES A FEW ROTATIONS THEN STOPS  

AT MY WITTS END AND PARTS ARE CRAZY EXPENSIVE   PLEASE HELP!! WHAT COULD BE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM ?

You should try and see if the refrigerator has a diagnostic cycle you can get into and see if that can point you in the right direction. you may have a bad thermistor or the board is not reading the thermistor resistance properly. Diagnostics may possibly tell you you have a bad thermistor in one of the compartments.    Thermistors rarely go in refrigerators but they can malfunction.   Since you have ordered a new control board already . Yes I would try another board in the unit first. You should be able to replace the one you have at no cost to you and get another one. Then start from there to see if the issue is fixed at that point.  I believe your only expense would be shipping costs.  when ever you purchase anything electrical , there is always a risk factor of receiving a bad board or getting a new board that is not the same number even though the box might say its the same number. That actually happened to me once and when I replaced the mother board it still didn't work and I was baffled by the situation.  I relooked over the new board and its numbers and found that they had given me the wrong part # board . Went back and exchanged it for another new board and then the fridge was fine.     good luck
