Garage Kit for Top Mounts
Electrolux Major Appliances Service Flash
SERVICE FLASH RF083FRIG
Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit. On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control. This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start to defrost. There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301 and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater
