Question about Refrigerators
If either the top or bottom compartment is not cooling, then the thermal couple (cooling module) behing the fan and heat sink is bad. It can be replaced with part number RF 4545-14 but they cost $70 each. One on the top and another on the bottom. You would need to solder a few wires. I think, this is not worth the cost, since the fridge cost about $150. Also if you don't get power than the circuit board in the back has burned-out. The replacement for this part is RF-5210-37 cost about $38. I replaced the the circuit board after the fridge wouldn't go on. Now the top compartment won't cool and I need a thermal couple. Total cost would have been $130 and I think it's not worth it. So since I fixed the power issue, I will use this fridge just for my reds in the bottom compartment for as long as it will last. I will remove the broken thermal couple, maybe I can put together my own.
