Stumped
« on: January 29, 2013, 08:22:03 AM »
Magic Chef CBT1925GRW Freezes everything. Damper is functioning fine. Cold control will shut down unit except in off. Replaced Cold control, same thing. Parts catalogs show 2 controls 61005789 & 61005790 further break down in substitute history narrows it to the 61005790 (which I replaced it with). FSP has the disclaimer, part may appear different but function the same, well this one was definitely different, it didn't have the fish weight on the end, just a coil which can't be properly secured.
ANY IDEAS?

The picture shows the weight on the end.  Whenever I run it that, I wrap the tube around the original weight.

Thought of that but, the coil on the end of the new one is a tight wrap (like around a pencil) and 1 1/4" long. I am afraid I will break the tubing unwinding and rewinding, don't want to throw 60 bucks down the tubes.

Its a maytag Refrigerator and there are two different parts with 2 different part numbers .You need to no the serial number of refrigerator to use the right one.Thats why you need the series # when you look it up.Series 10 and 13 which correlates to a different thermostat for the serial number you have.Thats Maytag for you.

Thank you, dab. You are correct, oddly enough when you zoom in on the part picture, both have the same part # but different prices.  61005790 is the one called for on this box, it was $20 more than the other control.
Stoveguy, I actually thought of that, but have no way of actually knowing, the switch seemed to function fine. There was a piece of insulation on the line so I slid it back to insulate it from the bulb and possibly any heat from the defrost timer motor. I will follow up tomorrow, I didn't get a chance today.

Pull evaporator panel and look at frost pattern.if pattern is a little low could that could make compressor run longer.Anytime I saw a light on in fresh food section that would cause poor cooling in fresh food section.Not freezing.

Zoom part on picture.I guess you are taking about the picture on web?They could be using same part to take the picture because they look alike.Just putting that out there if we are on the same page.
