    Same problem - Bottom freezer working overtime (sometimes down to 15 below 0), top refrigerator not cooling at all. Had a repair guy come and he replaced the motherboard. Worked for 3 days, then same problem. He came back and overrode (or turned off) a thermister, assuming it was the problem and was assuming that another thermister would reset itself to "default". We wouldn't be able to adjust the temperature, but the fridge part would cool. No go. Freezer stays very cold, fridge has cooled a tiny bit - gets down to 64 or so, with a tiny bit of cool air coming up from the hole in the lower rear of the fridge (inside).



    Repairman says he's having trouble getting a replacement part for the thermister. Called him for status and got no return call. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The evaporator fan is normally the problem. However these units work slightly different from other fridges. they have temp sensors in multiple places that report back to the main control board in rear. also these have no damper to control air flow to fridge from freezer, instead uses multispeed fan with rpm feedback to board. the dial controls are not regular thermostats, they are part of a "encoder board" that tells the main board your settings. The temp sensor can be checked by measuring resistence (varies by temp) at the connector to board.
