I have a GSH25JSXBSS fridge that I've noticed is short-cycling. The freezer is around 10 degrees currently and fridge around 41. I have the temps turned all the way on cold, so it seems it should be a little colder inside, and I'm guessing the short cycling is the cause. I've noticed that the fridge (compressor, and both fans) will run for a couple minutes, and then both fans and the compressor shut down, like it has reached proper temp. But then a couple minutes later, both fans turns back on, but the compressor fails to turn on (with a relay click - probably thermal overload since the compressor was just on). I've felt the compressor, and its a little warm, but no where close to hot. I'll hear the click a couple times, and then by the third time, the compressor will kick on. It will run for several minutes, and then both fans and the compressor turn off again, and the cycle repeats. Would this be a control board issue? Or a temperature sensor issue? I was thinking if a sensor is acting up, the control board could possibly be working correctly but just receiving bad readings, which could cause the short cycling. As a test, i did take the control board out, and put it in an equivalent fridge that i know has a refrigerant leak, and the compressor runs non stop in there, doesnt do the short cycling in that one. So i sorta dont think its the control board, but i have no idea. Any ideas?
