Hello Erin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration.

You need to have individual surge protector on all of your appliances with a control board. They are $15.00 - $20.00 at Lowes or Home Depot. They will one day save you an expensive repair bill. Power surges and even static electricity will knock out a board.

Now, in your case I do not believe you have a power board problem.

I can not help you unless you send me the model number. The model number is on the inside wall, near the top in your fresh food section.

What is the ideal setting for fridge on Bosch KGN34VW20G

Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired Sears service technician. The freezer temperature should be between -2 & + 2 degrees F. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degree F.
Pick up a inexpensive temperature gauge with a steel shank. Place the temperature gauge in the freezer center. Do not make contact with any food product. Allow 20 minutes and read the gauge. Be quick the temperature on the gauge will drop quickly when you remove. Adjust the temperature control knob according until you reach the desired setting. Repeat this process as necessary. Do the same for the fresh food section.
You only have one source of cooling; the evaporator coil and fan in the freezer. The freezer will meet it's temperature setting first before it opens the fresh food section damper.
A balanced system will save on your electrical bills. The compressor will kick in only when demand is met. Your compressor should not be running continuously.

When I first start my yukon it has 45 pounds of pressure but when I drive it the oil pressure goes to 10

I would suggest taking the oil pressure sender out and temporarily connecting a manual gauge to the engine. Run the engine until it's warm. If the manual gauge reads the same pressure as the electric one you may have a serious engine problem. If the manual gauge reads normal when the engine is warm the problem is probably with the gauge, most likely the sender.

Incorrect fuel gauge reading or no reading

While it could be a bad gauge, as it's an electric gauge, most likely it's the sending unit inside the gas tank. Make sure your fuses are good, and your ground wires are clean and tight, especially under the car. If all that checks out, you might want to drop the gas tank and pull out the sending unit.

Brand new freezer not starting

You may have plugged your freezer into a bad receptacle, which is not providing the proper voltage. (usually due to a loose wire or bad contacts in the receptacle.) After letting the unit sit for at least 10 minutes, plug it into a different outlet (preferably on a different breaker). You can use a heavy gauge (like 14 or 12 gauge) extension cord for the test. If it starts and runs, fix your original receptacle / breaker / wiring. If still the same results (compressor not starting), call for warranty service.
