Question about Refrigerators
Re: then freezer completely thaws and refridgerator warms to 50+ degrees. If the unit is cooling, then the compressor is starting and working.
More than a compressor it can be a problem with defrost system or with temperature control.
The following parts may be responsible, testing of thermostats precision at different temperature is quite difficult.
thermostat-bi-metal - freezer defrost thermostat, part 620 in diag.
Tested reading Ohms, if open replace, tested checking it it does open at limit temp, if it is shorted, replace it. Check also condenser and defrost fan fan and defrost heater. Fan tested energizing it and heater reading Ohms, if open replace. Check the thermodisks, those are high limits, they may also be shorted if they do not cut off.
sensor (temperature sensor) - part 241 in diagram.
(determines fridge temp- test is done starting fridge with sensor open and shorted)
Check also the compressor overload (overload/relay).
I dont think this is faulty, this is simply cutting off because of overload caused by temp control.
If all the above is OK, then there is a problem with electronic temperature control, the compressor motor is pumping.
Ensure that main pcb is grounded properly.
Here part list.
