Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Cooler works well. Refrigerator is warm (53 F) even though temp control is cranked to right. Have had this problem before. Ended up soldering new capacitor at c2 position in the control unit that is located in the top right of the refrigerator. This worked for about a year but problems have returned. Soldered in new capacitor. It stayed cool about a week and is now as I described at the beginning of this note. Any ideas?

True T-49 refrigerator/freezer temperature calibration


Contact the manufacture, it is most likely going to be covered under warranty. If the knob is not removable, (check for a set screw on the side of the knob it will take a small allen wrench) Then the thermostat (temp controller) will need to be replaced, if it isn't a style that you can calibrate.

My refrigerator works for about 8hours, then warms up even though you can hear it running.


probably have refrigerant leak/faulty compressor/temp control or sensor.
Check the temp sensor little pipe is not caked with ice ..
turn off refrigerator and let it defrost even if it is frost free..
some fridges have an auto defrost cycle..could be it is doing one?

The overall refrigeration has deteriorated - the freezer is better than the regular compartment, though not as strong as it needs to be. the regular compartment is barely cooler than room temp.

Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough


If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.
