    Question GE Freezer keeps running

    I have a GE freezer (FUF17D) that just keeps running -- it seems as if the temp sensor is simply not causing the compressor to shut off. I placed a freezer thermometer in the cabinet and at the lowest freezer setting (a '1') I am going below the setpoint of -10F (according to the manual).

    The temperature sensor is located on the inside of the cabinet -- is there any way to test this thing to see if that is the culprit?

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks

    BTW, I noticed this problem because I started seeing ice buildup on the bottom of the freezer and the drain was frozen. I thought that perhaps the defrost cycle was coming on *while* the compressor was still running - causing the water to melt before it could actually drain out. I took the system apart and cleaned out all of the ice, etc.

    Strange. I hope it is just a faulty temp sensor.

    Yes, it sounds like your temp. control is bad. There should be some more letters after the D in your model#.

    Jake, there are indeed more letters - FUF17DABRWH. I didn't include them because I could never come up with a match!

    Question, of all the part number listed below, do they all use the same temp control?

    Thanks!
