Either the compressor is shot or the circuits controlling its operation are no good. Since the display does not light up I am sure it is a controller problem and the module needs replacement.

SOURCE: artic air refrigerator not cooling

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I have a wine enthusiast wine cooler model 272 03 27. Not cooling,compressor kicks on. The fans are running.The temperature never gets below 64.Is it the temp sensor or Control board? Thanks Randy


It sounds like it is in the correct temperature range. You may ned to adjust the temperature to a lower setting.

Why does wine freeze?


Check for corrosion on the temp probe. The digital displays use thermistors to determine the temp so if the probe has dust on it it will change the resistance reading and tell the cooler that it is warmer than it is. All you can do is clean the probe, and if that doesn't solve the problem then the control or probe are faulty as they are usually one piece you will have to change it out. If you are mechanically inclined you can change out the temp control with an a19 abc24c remote bulb temp control from Johnson controls and that will last of the rest of your life.

Magic Chef Wine Cooler Model #MCWC50DBT will not hold correct temperature. Temps fluctuate between about 45 to often 70 degrees F. Also, often get an "EEF" error message.


Mr. Lindquist: We are experiencing essentially the same problem. Have tried replacing the temperature control board without change. Would be interested to know if you get a solution.

The temp. sensor displays the wrong temp.


Dear Sir/Madaam,

The 6SBAR-BS-G does not have a digital temperature display. Could you provide your correct model number? The 6SBARE-BS-G does have a digital display and has two temperature sensors.

One is used for control and the other is used for display. The are connected to the back of the display board by small white molex connectors. The smallest is for (two pin) is for the control and the three pin (although only two of the pins are used) is for the display.

The unit does not have to be removed for it's installed location to change the thermsitor, (temperature sensor), but you will want the power off when you swap it out.

You can order a new sensor from a few sites on line but the best thing to do is call the factory direct at 800-223-3900. The part number for the display thermsitor is 42246463 (the control thermsitor is 42246462). If your unit is more than a year old you may wish to replace both sensors while you are doing the work. If you are doing the work yourself, ask the customer service technician if he/she would email you the service manual as well.

Let me know if you need any further assistance - Subdriver
