Question about Refrigerators
I just fixed a broken damper door that appears to share cooling from the freezer to fridge. Ever since this "fix" the fridge fan behind the damper appears to run non-stop and keep temperature unevenly.
1. I don't remember if the fridge fan ran all the time before my "fix". It seems like it did not. Does the fan run all the time? (It does stop when I open the door)
2. Could something else (motherboard etc.) have been tweaked during the 4 or 5 days that the damper door was broken?
Appreciate any help!

Hi, they have changed lots of parts, were they defected, did they tested parts for faults or they just change parts, because it's available, there's always a reason why a certain part, go bad. so far you change most of parts in ref. check refrigerant (gas, freon) pressure, check compressor, for faulty suction and high side valve, it's possible your compressor loosing efficiency. or say if compressor normally pump 50 psi. now it's pumping 40 psi. is the refrigeration cycle balance ? is there restriction in your ref. system? is compressor running long enough? plug on ref. let it run for 1hr, listen to compressor for any clicking sound, fans and everything else could be working, be compressor not, compressor could be short cycling (not working long enough) also check voltage in receptacle(outlet) with digital multi-tester, get accurate voltage reading, let me know, could also be a faulty circuit breaker in house (building) not your ref. let me know, system could have very slow refrigerant leak, you could have a very small (slow) gas leak, that's why your refrigerator get hot first, then your freezer, there's a condensate line (loop) that passes through, ref body, close to doors to prevent door gasket from freezing, after few years sometimes develope leaks, cause by rusting. it's very possible there could be small leak in your system. let me know what happened.good luck.

I recently had exactly the same problme with this model refrigerator. I found the problem to be the defrost timer. It is located behind the panel on the back of the refrigerator where the mains cord is located, you will need to replace it with the exact same model. I am in Australia and managed to find the exact part on ebay cheaply from a local appliance parts supplier, any appliance parts supplier that deals in Sharp refrigerators should be able to help you.
You will have to defrost the refrigerator overnight again before doing this repair.
Of course there are a couple of other components that could cause this problem, you can acutally check to see if the defrost time is moving by taking note of it's current position and then checking it every thirty minutes or so. If it does not move then it could be faulty, make sure also that power is getting to the timer as well.
