The compressor, I do not know why the repair technician placed that pipe on the side with the valve the service cost me $110.
Below is the part that am referring to that is icing pipe next to the compressor, is this normal. Before the ice build-up was about 2cm thick now it's just 1-2mm its this normal?
This is the Bi-Metal part that I've replaced. The previous Bi-Metal thermal IC on the pink wire has no continuity that's why I replaced it which I think is correct, is it?
Below is the heater component at the freezer section, the ice build-up is now about paper thin compared to before which was like 1-2cm thick.
I don't know what is this part is and what it does but the ice build-up is not very thin unlike before.
The service technician repairs cost around $110 of which I couldn't understand why he placed pipes valves on the compressor. The thing he did was release the coolant and replaced it and that was it, they came back after a week when I called that it still is not cooling. They came back and said the freezer fan motor isn't working and also said that part is out of stock. WTH two weeks and still no fridge. After nearly three weeks total of non-functioning refrigirator I didn't bother to call the the manufacturer service center again because I believed that I got duped $110. The stress and cost of wasted food was uncalled for.
Kindly advise if the things I did before would make it now function normally. The total cost of parts that I've replaced on my own was around $60 comprising of the bi-metal, 2 door gaskets and fan motor on the freezer. I ran hot water on the two holes and I believe water came out pretty fast except for the one that goes into the fridge compartment, though I believe all the water did came out. I haven't used baking soda on the hot water, should have I done that or am I good to go?
