« on: May 27, 2016, 12:40:50 PM »
customer states fresh food warms up to 50+ degrees at 7 to 8 at night, turns it off and on, resets temp and the unit cools back down. no codes in display. 2009 unit. any hints?

Could be a board making it stay in defrost for longer than it should. It's hard to catch those intermittent non cooling complaints. Check thermistors in a cup of ice water and check resistance based on the tech manual, then let the thermistors out of the ice water to warm up in your hand and check it again to make sure the resistance matches the chart. If that checks ok, youre likely looking at a bad board not letting it get out of defrost at the appropriate time

Check wattage/amperage of defrost heater when in defrost cycle.  I have replaced several calrod heaters that are not fully heating to rated capacity.  Also where the wiring plugs in to heater I have found bad connections due to no slack in wiring.  Stretched tight as a drum.
