HI.. this is my first post here
I have been repairing appliances for many years.. but got out of it for a while... now im kinda dabbling in it again.. lol
I have a frigidare top mount french door FPHB2899LF3.
i have a few questions (if any one has worked on these before)
is there a way to calibrate the temp dispaly ?
the compressor is running all the time... i dont know if this is a thermostat issue.. or a gate issue.
the ice and water are not hooked up
freezer is good... fridge could be colder
the display is reading - 16 freezer... -1 fridge
i chipped the freezer...it is showing a nice -16 C with a healthy defrost pattern. however the compressor seems to be running all the time
the fridge was chipped... it is reading a mean temp of +2 c.... however there is odd readings of a sharp drop for approx half an hour every once in a while... but them Back up to +2...
im guessing that the compressor is running all the time to try and get the fridge down to -1... but the gate is not allowing the cold air to enter the fridge.
i tested the gate to see if it was operating .. and yes... it opens and closes with command adjustments from the panel.
i would like to lower the temp in the fridge to stop the compressor from running all the time.
i dont really want to rip this thing apart... as it is really a pretty fridge.... however i will if need be.
my questions are...
1. where is the thermostat probe ?.. is it in the fridge ... or freezer?
2. can i calibrate the temp for the fridge ?
3. does the ice and water NEED to be hooked up before the fridge will work properly ? (IE.. ice in the ice bucket)
thank you for looking in...
