Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is Mike and I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today.
The problem would be the thermister. From inside of the fridge remove the thermister from the fins and unplug the wires. With a multi-meter set it on Ohms, touch the wires with the probes/ does not matter which probe to wire/ hold the bulb end of the thermister between your fingers, your reading should read at about 7000 Ohms. Stick the bulb end of the thermister in a glass of ice water, reading should start climbing and go to about 22000 Ohms. If this happens the thermister is good and you need to look elsewhere. If it does not test out you need to replace the thermister. The thermister is a thermostat that controls the heat source that makes the fridge cool. If the thermister reads good then there is likely a PCB issue.
Very good! Sounds like you had all the bases covered except for one,eh?
A small amount of testing will confirm what we suspect.
It looks like this
That is the thermistor
Very very easy. Pretty much just unplug it. the white piece unplugs. You might have to pinch it on the tabs to remove. It should not take a lot of force to unplug.
What is the model number of the fridge? I want to confirm which thermistor. It may take me about 10 minutes to confirm.
Apparently that fridge has different codes. Are you operating on battery?
The error indicates lower than 20% on the battery. Can you confirm the camper fuse for the fridge is not needing replacing?
In the electrical panel of the camper. Sounds like the only issue is that the fridge is still running off of battery and the fuse is preventing A/C power.
Yes. The chat will still be open. We can continue then, no problem.
Very good. I look forward to it.
