Where is the thermistor on a Whirlpool refrigerator?
Herein, where is the thermistor located on a refrigerator?
Freezer and Fresh Food Thermistors The freezer thermistor is located at the bottom of the freezer near the drain pan (see picture below). The fresh food thermistors are in the fresh food section and depending on the model they will be in different places.
Secondly, what happens if a thermistor fails? When a thermistor is failing, it'll display incorrect temperatures, or you'll see impossible temperature fluctuations. They measure temperatures and send resistance signals to the AC control module, allowing the system to automatically adjust so the cabin remains at the temperature you set.
Keeping this in consideration, how does a thermistor work in a fridge?
In refrigerators, the thermistor is a key part of the system that allows the refrigerator to stay within a short range of temperatures and turn on its cooling cycle when the temperature starts to rise. Problems with the thermistor will keep the refrigerator from operating correctly.
How do you check a thermistor with a multimeter?
As with any resistor, you can use the ohmmeter setting on your multimeter to measure thermistor resistance. The resistance value displayed on your multimeter should correspond to the ambient temperature near the thermistor. The resistance will change in response to temperature change.
