The temperature sensor (thermistor) monitors and communicates the refrigerator, freezer, and evaporator temperature to the control board.

Failure Symptoms: Erratic temperatures, ice and/or frost buildup on the rear panel or floor inside the freezer (depends on the style and placement of the evaporator coil in the unit). Also may cause the compressor and evaporator fan to not run.

How to Test: Measure resistance with a multimeter. The resistance should change along with the refrigerator temperature. If the thermistor resistance does not change, or does not have continuity, it should be replaced.

*Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. The higher the resistance, the lower the current flow. The lower the resistance, the higher the current flow.

*Resistance testing should be attempted only when voltage is NOT present in the circuit being tested. Always unplug the device or turn off the main circuit breaker before attempting a resistance test.

Repair Tip: Most sensors will need to be spliced in. It is recommended to use "pigtail connectors" and seal the connection with silicone after crimping.
