Hello. A few days ago the display on my refrigerator was blinking "35". I unplugged the refrigerator in an attempt to reset it and although the blinking "35" did go away, I noticed that the screen now says that my inside temperature of the refrigerator is 80 degrees. That is inaccurate because everything in the refrigerator is very cold. In fact, some things in the refrigerator were frozen.

I looked this up and replaced the temperature sensor.

It was a pretty simple process. The condenser behind the back panel was frozen and I did wait for the frost to melt away before I put everything back together and plugged the refrigerator back in. It has been about 18 hours now and nothing in the refrigerator is frozen but the screen does still say it is 80 degrees in the refrigerator. I have the tempt set to 35 degrees. Do I have to reset something? Any input would be helpful.

Thank you
Bart

Hi Bart,

You will need to order and replace the refrigerator sensor.

Here's the refrigerator sensor for your model that you will need to fix this problem:
