    Will this part fix the following problem? Problem: Freezer is too cold and does not appear to recognize (i.E., ignores) user's manual temperature setting. Condenser coils are clean, fan works, fridge operates fine; but the freezer side is super cooled ( -9 degrees) even though manual setting is +2 degrees. Motor can be heard running 99% of time with occasional shut off and immediately back on! All other features of this appliance seem to be operating normally.
    For model number KSSC48QMS02
    Hi Jim, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes this can be one of the parts that cause that issue. I would suggest testing it with a multi-meter to see if it is malfunctioning. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

    Refrigerator is too cold. This model doesn't seem to have a thermostat probe for the refrigerator compartment. Is the part i need the thermistor? Thanx.
    For model number KSCS23INSS01
    Hi Mark, Thank you for your question. I would suggest checking this thermistor and also your defrost thermostat as well. It could be either of those two parts. Good luck with your repair.

    The compressor never cuts off and the freezer drops down to -20 degrees if it runs awhile but the refrigerator stays at set temperature. The temperature in the freezer even though i set it to 0 degrees it will show 70 degrees. I will turn the unit off for 1-2 hours and then turn it back on.. my concern is that i am told if not the thermistor then the wiring may be bad and it cant be replaced so have to buy another refrigerator... please reply back any feed back...
    For model number KSSC48QMS03
    Hello Dennis, thank you for your question. There are a few parts that could be the issue. First I would suggest pulling the appliance out from the wall, unplugging and defrosting the unit. Clean any dust or debris from around the compressor as well as the condenser coils. If the appliance is plugged in, and still runs continuously, you will want to check the Bi-Metal Defrost Thermostat, Defrost Heater, and condenser fan motor. If the issue persists after those parts are tested/replaced, the issue is most likely with the inverter board, or main electronic control board. I hope this helps!

    What are the ohm readings for the thermistor?
    For model number Whirlpool GC5SHEXNS03
    Hello Brad, thank you for your question. At room temp the resistance for the thermistors would be 2.7K ohms. I hope this helps!

    New refrigerator installed about 5 months ago. Several times a day (or maybe more), the freezer compartment temperature will drop by over 10 degrees while the refrigerator compartment temperature stays about the same. Is this normal?Example: if settings are 0 degrees and 36 degrees f. the freezer compartment temperature may go down to about -10 to -15 degrees f. for about 10 to 20 minutes, while the refrigerator compartment temperature doesn't change much.
    For model number KBSD608ESS00
    Hi Marty, Thank you for your question. It is normal for the refrigerator temperature to fluctuate above or below the set temperature. The refrigerator normally operates at 37 degrees. The amount of food in the refrigerator will cause the temperature to change. Also, if the refrigerator is defrosting, the defrost thermostat or the adaptive defrost control board will adjust the temperature as well. If you feel the refrigerator is not working correctly, you will need to contact Whirlpool as you would be under warranty with them. Their telephone number is 1-866-698-2538. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
