Replacing the PCB

The thermostat/PCB is faulty on our fridge/freezer. However, I can't work out how to get to it! Is there a screw on teh front panel at the top I need to undo, or will it just come off (safely) if I just pull it?

    My thermostat is also faulty i have bought a new one and am about to fit it I pulled back the grey stickers to reveal the screws and removed them, then I've diconnected from the circuit board and traced the wire to outside of the back of the fridge where the wire then goes in to the fridge and there is some glue or something around the wire acting as a seal i guess. How do I remove this?

Hello,
There are two screws located underneath the silver sticker, of all places. You need to pull the sticker back just a few inches on either side and there you will find the two hexagonal screws.
Remove these two screws and the PCB Board will slide out. You will also see where the thermostat probe plugs into the board and then snakes to the back of the fridge.

The lcd panel has stopped showing its display clearly juus odd shaped symbols , the fridge / freezer still works fine . Does the PCb need replacing ?


Will,

Your remarks on the "odd shapes and symbols" is definitely indicative of a PCB fault, most probably caused by a surge of sorts. Lightning or power-dips regularly causes these issues.

I would suggest doing a quick search on the web for an "authorised repair agent" for you device. They should be able to fix or replace the faulty unit.

Good Luck.

OK I have the RF610A fridge on top and freezer below in french door arrangement.


Have you checked the fridge thermostat? If the thermostat is ok then you should trace the volts which operate the valve which connects the compressor to the fridge evaporator coils. If the valve is getting volts then the valve is faulty. If not fault lies with control circuitry.

First question why are you replacing the freezer thermostat? Do you have an ice build up on the rear wall of the freezer? This build up if you do have it is not due to the thermostat control for the freezer. It is termed as a defrost issue due to a fault condition being present in the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or adaptive control depending on which type of refrigerator you have. I will await your reply as to why you are replacing the control thermostat and if you do have any ice up condition before posting further how to solve this situation. I await your reply
Thank you

Replacing a fridge thermostat of a Smeg FC40RX fridge freezer


DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS METHOD UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND ELECTRICAL SAFETY. The thermostat is behind the cooling element at the back of the fridge compartment and it connected to the dial at the top front of the compartment that controls its temperature setting. Remove the front plate to access the switch and you will see the wiring that goes to the thermostat. Connect the two wires to the thermostat and if the fridge does not start the thermostat is faulty. Replacements are available, but you may need to do some hunting on line. With the power off this time, securely tie a few feet of string around the thermostat wiring at the switch. carefully loosen the cooling element to free the thermostat and pull it free. Now tie the string to your new thermostat and pull the string back through so the wiring is pulled into place. Put everything back the way you found it and, after a short while, enjoy a nice cold drink.

I have a Whirlpool Refridgerator model WBM39MS. It stopped cooling and I had it repaired. The Repairman replaced the electronic control box. Repairer claims that the compressor is working. It now seems...


Hi Lollipop, partially working fridge? A fridge either works or not, cold air is made in freezer then distributed to fridge via a vent. In your case WBM Series fridge, top mount freezer blows air down a vent (back centre of chiller compartment). A common fault with the WBM Series is both the PCB and Interface Panel (PCB beside compressor back of fridge, Interface is display panel front of fridge).
So if freezer is cold and fridge not, try a fan motor. If compressor doesn't work either comp is faulty or PCB has blown(has a burning smell).. Hope this helps you and maybe many other ppl.
