Question about Refrigerators
NEC FR 454 (model with computer adjusted freezer temperature control). Only stops running for a short period of time (maybe 30 mins) then runs for upto 2 hours, even if the door is not open. Every repair man I have spoken to has said to throw it away, the computers are always breaking down and it's not worth repairing. Just wanted to make sure there wasn't something simple I could check first. Still keeps everythig cold, and the door seals are working well too. Thanks
At the back of the refrigerator on top is a removable panel hiding the computer element (mother board) of the fridge. It is replacable (i have replaced it a year ago) - you can do it yourself (buy a new element, remove the cover panel, unplug the old mother board and plug in the wires to the new one - is easy as;)
try to buy the element yourself , refrig mechanic quoted $ 500 for the element only so I found it myself from NEC people and paid only ca 150

About the only thing you can do is check the coils located either underneath the unit or behind it. they will have a fan that directs air over them to disapate heat. these become clogged with an incredible amount of dust over time and extend running time. u can go to a hardware store and purchase a coil brush for under ten dollars it is long and thin to remove dirt from the coils. use a shop vac also. hope this helps. please rate me
