Good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist with your query today.

It sounds like the thermostat is faulty if its reading -18 but that isnt really the case, before looking to replace any parts its always worth defrosting the freezer over 24 hours, as often you get a build up of ice behind the rear compartment (which you cant see).

This costs relativity nothing, and fixes 33% of these type of issues, so its worth doing before you look at testing the thermostat and control board for a fault.
