Question about U-Line 75BWC

2 Answers

Stat thanks. I took the two screws out of the temp setting knob and pulled that out. There were two wires connected to it that had ends on them that slid onto the temp setting device. when I pulled one off and touched the end I got a little shock. Is that not the thermostat?

    Maybe this is just beyond me but when I removed the housing where the temp knob was connected, it had two wires attached to it. Both had connectors on the end that slid onto the part. I pulled those two off. Are those the two wires that I should cross? Since they have the ends on them, I don't see how I can connect them together without having to cut the ends off and strip off some of the insulation.

Yes that is the 2 connectors to join together. if the connectors are not insulated, just tape them together or if an insulated type, use something like a paper clip pushed into each

Always disconnect from mains when you do that sort of thing.
disconnect from mains, short the two wires together - just tape them together - and see if cooling starts

How to test maytag refrigerator defrost thermostat


on your model the thermostat comes with a new heater
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Defrost-Heater-Assembly/61006116/1021756
you have to read the t-stat when it's cold,unplug the harness,stick one end into the harness and stick the tip of the other probe into the other wire of the t-stat,or seeing that you have to replace the heater and t-stat anyway cut the two wires going to the t-stat,wire nut them together,manually turn the timer knob to put it into defrost and if the heater comes on you know the t-stat is bad.you can leave the heater on and get a hair dryer,melt out all the ice and then disconnect the t-stat wires and tape them or wirenut them,this way your machine will run for 10 to 12 days before it freezes up again giving you time to order your parts and you won't loose any food.when you get new parts melt out any ice again and change heater and t-stat.most likely the t-stat is bad,common problem.

How do I replace my defrost timmer in my Hotpoint CSXGR part#WR9X489. Thank You Kevin H.


Hello Kevin,

Usually the defrost timer fit into the control panel housing where the thermostat is (upper back wall of fresh food section) remove covering by removing t-stat knob and 1/4" headed screw of left side of cover.pull off cover. Timer is to the right of t-stat,by removing screw that holds timer and pulling out tabs on the metal housing there is whole lot easier that removing that housing

Good luck

I hope this helps,if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

Water tricling in back of refrigerator


sounds like you have a frozen defrost drain. This is a fairly easy repair you can do yourself.  
  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • on some older whirlpools pull the light lens cover off in the fresh food compartment
  • remove control knobs then remove control housing (2 screws on bottom right and left)
  • this should expose a cup in the center of temp cntrl and air vent
  • clean cup and flush out tube it goes into
  • then follow the rest of these instructions if necessary.
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order

that should fix you up. if you have any further questions leave me a comment here and I'll gladly help any way I can. thanks Peyton

After cleaning coils and in back of fridge, it appears that the defrost keeps cycling every 5 minutes


hi
Step 1:
 If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.

Step 2: 
If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.

Step 3: 
If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 4: 
If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer suddenly stops making ice.


hi The thermostat control is usually mounted inside the refrigerator. Its visible control knob is turned to regulate the refrigerator/freezer temperature. The workability of this control can be tested in various ways, depending on the problem. To test the thermostat control:

Step 1:
 If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.

Step 2: 
If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.

Step 3: 
If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 4: 
If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.

Freezer and fresh food compartment are warm.


The fridge thermostat is faulty and not cutting in at the required temperature. Fridge stats are not easy to test, so the best way is to bypass the stat to see if the compressor starts. To bypass the stat first unplug the appliance and remove the stat housing from inside the fridge compartment, once you have removed the housing you will see the stat inside. Some stats have 2 terminals some have 3, whatever yours has you will need to connect the compressor wire ( Black) to the live wire (Red or White). When you have bypassed the stat plug the appliance back in and switch on, if the fridge starts up and runs ok you will need to purchase a new stat.

Defroster problems


tduck, what the tech was refering to is the adaptive defrost board. This is a common failure on these models. You are going to find it in the refrigerator side. Remove the temp control end knobs from the controllers. Remove the screws holding the light shield. Now in the back on each side you will see a tab that pushes in and the cover will pull straight out. This sometimes can be difficult task, those tabs are a real pain. Now you will remove the screws holding the defrost timer cover and the defrost timer will be in the back on the right side. On this defrost board you will see L1 and test right next to eachother. Using a small screw driver short across these terminals with the harness on. This will put the refrigerator into the defrost. If it goes into defrost and jumps right back out, you know it's the defrost board. The defrost bi-metal will be normally closed and open to terminate the defrost. So if your evaporator is warm, it will not go into defrost. You should be able to get a breakdown of this at Sears.com, go to appliance parts and enter your model number. Usually the adaptive defrost board is the culprit, I don't see too many heaters or bi-metals (defrost terminators) go bad. Your part number for the board is 61003990 for series 10. See if your serial number starts with 10.....Catriver..post back.
