Question about Refrigerators
PLEASE HELP ME, I keep having to swith our fridge/freezer off and on again at the wall as it seems it goes into automatic defrost (or temperature control) when it needs to but it is not starting itself up again until we turn it off and on again at the wall. It's getting more and more prevailent.
When we turn it off for 60 seconds it comes up with Error Code 3 - does anyone know what the problem is and what Error Code 3 is please?
Yes your loosding communication between the thermistors and the control
in most cases and can be solved by ensuring you have nothing else sharing a plug or circuit with the refrigerator,,,,,I MEAN NOTHING, dedicated breaker the whole nine yards.
Past that you need a new control board.
I can not save you a service call, but I can remind you to read your warrenty this 150.00 board is covered under the 5 year electronics warrenty

If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
