Due to a possibility of personal injury or property damage, always contact an authorized technician for servicing or repair of this refrigerator.

Refer to Service Manual RS1200001 for design, disassembly, ice maker, safety, testing, and troubleshooting information.

WARNING

To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe personal injury or death, disconnect power to refrigerator using power switch before servicing. Wires removed during disassembly must be replaced on proper terminals to insure correct earthing and polarization. After servicing, reconnect power using power switch.

As the temperature decreases, resistance increases. As the temperature increases, resistance decreases.

An open thermistor or thermistor circuit will result in failure of refrigerator to cool.

Shorted thermistor will cause refrigerator to run 100 percent of time except for defrost.

Freezer temperature setting and thermistor value will determine if compressor/condenser fan and evaporator fan switches are open or closed. Compressor/condenser fan switch must be open for 6 minutes before switch can close again (compressor dwell time).

Refrigerator temperature setting and thermistor value will determine if fresh food fan switch is to be open or closed.

Cut-out and cut-in temperature values must be reached and maintained for 15 seconds before output state will change (digital delay).

Refrigerator and freezer control calibration can be adjusted in Program Mode B.

Electronic Functional Description

Adaptive Defrost Operation

Defrost occurs after predetermined length of compressor run hours. Compressor run time between defrosts changes, or adapts, depending upon recent history of defrost lengths (time it takes for defrost terminator to open after defrost heater has been turned on). Defrost terminator opens at 55°F (13°C) and closes

at 20°F (-7°C).

Compressor run time between defrost (CRTD) will be one of 3 values under normal operation: CRTD 1 (8 hours) or CRTD 2 (12 hours) or CRTD 3 (16 hours).

If defrost length is low (DT-LO defined as 21 minutes) indicating small frost load, CRTD for next defrost cycle is advanced to next level.

If defrost length is high (DI – HI defined as 24 minutes) indicating large frost load, CRTD for next defrost cycle is lowered to next level.

If defrost length is between 21 and 24 minutes, CRTD for next defrost cycle remains the same.

Initial value at power up CRTD 0 is 4 hours.

Vacation Mode CRTD equals 96 hours. Vacation Mode CRTD is interrupted with door openings. Defrost interval will revert back to interval before Vacation Mode. Three things must occur to reach Vacation Mode CRTD:

1) Defrost interval must be CRTD 3 (16 hours).

2) Both refrigerator and freezer doors must have remained closed since last defrost cycle.

3) Defrost thermostat must have opened in less than 21 minutes during last defrost cycle.

Six minute dwell time occurs after defrost terminator opens before compressor and condenser fan motor will operate. Ten minute dwell time occurs after defrost terminator opens before evaporator fan motor will operate. Dwell time can be bypassed by disconnecting power to the unit for 30 seconds.

Conventional defrost can be selected in Program Mode B.

Mineral contact can cause lime build up in mold. Wicking of water over mold and poor cube release can occur. Silicone is applied at upper edges around fill cup and stripper.

Temperature Problems Press tab Freezer temperatures above normal 0° ±2°F (-18°±1°C) will slow down ice production. Increase ice production by setting freezer to colder setting. Thermostat cycling temperature (1 revolution ice maker) is 17° ±3°F (-8° ±1°C). Ice will freeze when these temperatures are achieved. Cycling time will be slower if freezer temperature is not cold enough to

! Caution To avoid property damage, test for water leaks after repair or replacement of water valve. Do not overtighten connection to household water supply.

Water Valve

Water valve has 1 solenoid. Valve has 80 mesh screen water strainer. When tan encapsulated solenoid is energized, the amount of water entering ice maker mold is directly proportional to length of time water valve switch is held closed by timing cam. Inside valve is a flow washer which acts as a water pressure regulator. Proper ice maker fill is 140 CC ±10CCat 7.5 seconds of water fill at an inlet pressure ranging from 20 to 120 PSI (1.4 to 8.2 bar).

Wiring Harness

A nonresettable thermal fuse micro device 170°F (78°C) is spliced into red wire of ice maker wiring harness. Excessive heat can cause no ice production. Replacing wiring harness will only temporarily solve problem. Replace ice maker thermostats.
