Remove the top section of the heater. You will notice at the lower Right Hand of the back of the heater a small black plastic bulb with a yellow wire. This is the sensor fot the unit. Take a microwavable bean bag and heat it up in the microwave to a temperature a little greater than your body temperature. Place the bag on the bulb and then try and start the heater. If the heater does not start, your sensor is working but may need to be relocated. If it still runs, call a technician.

THESE HEATERS HAVE A COPPER COLORED REMOTE SENSING BULB THAT HAS TO BE MOUNTED IN THE AIR FLOW. THEY ARE ONLY HELD ON WITH 2 CLIPS AND CAN BE KNOCKED OUT OF POSITION ... TAKE OFF THE FRONT COVER AND MAKE SURE THE BULB IS IN THE PROPER MOUNTING POSITION.

Make sure that the switch for the door is closing properly at all times. If not, unit will not start up or will shut down while operating because the switch has opened.

WHIRLPOOL NO-FROST REFRIG/FREEZR MODEL-EHT201ZKWR5


looks like operating normally...

the fridge as it reaches it's temperature shuts the compressor off and then after a few minutes..the fridge would increase temperature again and would turn back the compressor again.

its the thermostat which is cutting on and off the compressor.

and i think it is normal. based on the temperatures that you indicated..it is cooling very well..0 F in the freezer and 40 in the refrigerator... that's good.

Overheating


215 is not overheating. Does it keep getting hotter the faster you go? Does it cool off when slowing down or at idle? Does the Fan clutch or electric fan come on? When the engine is this hot.

COMPRESOR TROUBLESHOOTING


This is a typical symptom of having an A/C system low on freon if it cycles on and off when first turned on or very soon afterward. All types of A/C units for home and auto have a low pressure cut-out switch that will disengage the compressor when the freon level drops low enough to cause damage to the compressor. The unit needs recharging with the proper amount of freon to correct the problem. If it's an automobile A/C system and the freon level is okay, it could be a faulty compressor clutch or coil.
