Thank you for your question. Sometimes the gate linkage will break and not allow the diffuser to move. This can happen if frost or ice forms in the chute area. The new baffle # 2216112 will now have an improved (stronger) linkage. I'm also attaching some pictures with instructions to help prevent moisture from building up in the chute area. This will be the most likely problem. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for the information. I had already removed the chute and baffle, and there was no ice buildup. I manually opened the baffles before reinstalling everything, but after a couple of hours, they had closed again. I opened them again and removed the power wire from the assembly, then reinstalled them again. Now, the refrigerator is cool with the baffles partly open. I assume the diffuser is working, since it closed after I manually opened it. Am I now correct in believing the thermistor is probably the culprit?

I'm glad you have managed to get the fridge section cooling. Since the baffle did close again, it does indicate the baffle is ok. This will be a problem with either the board or the thermistor. The most likely problem will be with the board. To determine for sure, a thermistor resistance check will need to be made. I'm attaching a temperature and resistance chart for the thermistor. To check the thermistor, disconnect the power from the unit and then disconnect and remove the thermistor. Place it in a glass of ice water and the resistance should be approx. 8700 ohms. If it's in this range, the board # 8201527 will need to be replaced. If it's not in this range, the thermistor # 2188819 will need to be replaced. I hope this will help you.

Scott, the most resistance I can get out of the thermistor is 8325-8400 ohms. Is that close enough to 8700 to point to the circuit board?

I typed the wrong number. It's reading 7300-7400. Can I assume the problem is the thermistor?

A:

If you had the thermistor in the ice water for a few minutes and checked the temperture, if was 32 degrees, this reading would not be very good. It would indicate the thermistor would need to be replaced. If the water temperature was closer to 38 degrees, this reading would be ok.

A:

No, it was 32. I have ordered a thermistor, and will be back if that does not solve the problem. Thank you for your help--this was a lot easier than guessing about my hypotheses.

A:

The model number you sent is the Agrifab model. If Sears has the owners manual, it will be listed by the Sears stock number. Look on your sales receipt for the stock number. Remove the 071 at the beginning and the zero's at the end of the number. Insert 486 in place of the 071 and search the number.

You can also contact Agrifab at 866-576-8388 and they will probably send you an owners manual.
