Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Stylist 86

A:

Thank you for your question on the owner’s manual for your sewing machine.

I will need the model number off the sewing machine.

Depending on when it was made it will have a model number that starts with one of the following numbers.

117.XXXXXX 148.XXXXXXX 158.XXXXXXXX 385.XXXXXXX

If you machine has one of these numbers then please let me know and I will try to find you one.

Q:

Over Temp light is On and Readout is 86 degrees, yet the freezer is at 2 degrees 25328092803 Kenmore Elite Freezer

A:

Based on your details, it sounds like a thermistor or thermistor circuit issue. Disconnect the sensor circuit from the contol board and make the Ohm resistance at the harness plug. Unplug the freezer and remove the control board. Disconnect the harness and measure the Ohm resistance across pins 1 and 2.  At 2 degrees, the thermistor resistance should measure 79K Ohms or 79,732 Ohms. If the resistance measures 79K Ohms when the freezer is at 2 degrees, the control board is defective and would need to be replaced. If it does not measure 79K Ohm, check the wire connections at the thermistor. At 0 degrees the thermistor resistance should measure 84K Ohms or 84,925 Ohms. I hope this information is helpful.

A:

To remove the control board and display assembly, use a small slot screwdriver (pocket screwdriver) and slip the flat blade under the outer plastic frame of the control panel and pry it out from the door. Pry a little under each corner and it should release and you can then pull it out from the door. You should not have to solder any wires to the control board. The control board should have a like an 8 pin connector that will slide on and push on. Once you have the connector pulled from the control board,  measure across pins 1 and 2 which is the thermistor cicuit leading to the thermistor inside the freezer. If it measures acording to the  Ohm's reisistances  I provided in my last response, the thermistor and thermistor circuit is OK, the problem is the control board and display assembly.

I hope this is helpful.

It sounds like a bad control. At 24 degrees the thermistor resistance should measure 40,981 Ohms. I don't know what type of thermometer your using but it could be off. Place the thermometer in a glass of ice and water and see what it measures. It should measure right around 33 degrees to see if the thermometer is accurate. Also, be sure and disconnect the harness connector from the control board before measuring the Ohm resistance of the thermistor. Measure across pins 1 and 2. If you replaced the thermistor inside the freezer, be sure that you have good connections where its connected the wires leading up to the control board. But based on your symptom, it must be a bad control.

A:

Based on the temperature and the Ohm resisistance measurement provided, the thermistor is good and the control board is bad. 

The defrost thermostat is connected in series with the defrost heater. The defrost thermostat opens and breaks the electrical circuit to the defrost heater when the temperature of the evaporator area becomes too hot. If the defrost thermostat is open, the defrost heater will not operate. 

Let me know how the new control works.
