Temperature display is wrong until I reset after a storm
This has happened a few times now, where my GE Profile refrigerator will display an incorrect temperature and allow the fridge to get warm. The display was showing it was at 37 F, which is what we set it at; however, putting a thermometer inside showed around 41 F. I reached behind the fridge and unplugged it, plugged it back in, and the display instantly shows 41 F and starts running. It then cools it down to the proper temperature and stays consistent with the thermometer inside.
I have noticed that this has occurred a few times and we are usually clued in when the milk spoils faster (pre-putting a thermometer in there). I have also noticed that it seems to happen just after a lightning storm (live in Florida), when the lights flicker for a second.
Based on a power cycle fixing it and the potential link to power disruption during storms, would I be better served replacing the thermistor first or the control board? I am leaning towards control board, but open to suggestions!
Es esta una buena pregunta?
