Hi, I have an opposite issue with my kitchenaid fridge(KFIS29PBMS01. my freezer is warmer at 15F instead of 0F , and the fridge is fine, its always between 34-38F. I did measure both thermistors RC/FC once disconnected from P5 I get 7.2K/13.5K the actual temp is 37/18F at the time I measured, I then compared it to the W10316760 Thermistor chart and for 37/18F it should be 7.7K/13.4K , the fridge temp is off but the freezer thermistor is in range. I than ran all the thermistor DIAG's and it returned a value of "01" = pass. RC/FC Evaps fans are fine - I can hear them running when they are turned on via DIAG.HI Jake,
I ran all the thermistor DIAG's which includes Step 1 "the FC Themistor" and it returned a value of "01" = pass.
Like I said it could be that it passes but the DIAG doesn't measure if the Thermistor is accurate. I'm thinking that the FC thermistor is telling the CPU a warmer temp than it actually is.
Model is: KRSC503ESS007
when FC is in defrost the temp shoot up to 28F , it hot here today(84F), I will get a pic of the FC evap coil when is has frost on it, I think it is normal , but you are the experts and should know what is normal.
thanks a million, it sure sound like we have similar problem , it maybe the 3 way valve after all.
