Question about Freezers
The temperature seems to overshoot and then it sounds like a relay is oscillating at between 1sec and 1/2 sec . Then it can settle down again and control the temp.
The freezer has been defrosted to ensure the sensor is clear.
Is it a control board fault & is it repairable, or likely to be uneconomic?
I had the same problem last year and changed the miniature relay - £3.50 from Maplin. That cleared the problem for 18 months until a couple of weeks ago when the clicking started again. So I changed the relay once more but this time it hasn't cleared the problem. So looking at £146 for new control board from Whirlpool.

It sure sounds like you have a problem with the board. It may just be a dry joint or a faulty component. Normally one would replace the board.
