Defrost Mode Hello My Refrigerator has an automatic defrost, I have a problem now where the refrigerator went into defrost mode and the refrig side temp says 45 and the freezer side says 33. It's been two days now and shouldn't the setting go back to the orginal freezer and refrigerator settings? I tried unplugging the power to the refrig and waited over 2 minutes before plugging it back in. Settings went back to the same as stated above. Also if I try changing the settings down to 0 degrees for the freezer it will change but then after 3 seconds the freezer setting goes back to 33

    I vacuumed out the condesor coils but still same problem, but freezer temp has come down as low as 22 degrees, I have it set for zero degrees. Also the face plate that the freezer door gasket mates to is super hot.

Where is the defrost switch on 106.53592300

Not sure there is a manual defrost switch. Look at the link below for defrost switches for your model. On some refrigerators, if you set the temperature switch to off and unplug then plug in the refrigerator it will force the defrost mode; then unplugging and plugging again will reset the mode.

Is my refrigerator running properly? Refrig. went into defrost mode about 6-7 hours the other night. Unplugged and pugged it back in and it seems fine. Now, the refrig is performing defrost every 1-2...

if its a timer controlled defrost it will defrost every time the timer gets to the spot where it cuts off the compressor and activates the defrost circuitry,if its an "adaptive defrost type system" then it depends on the amount of times the door is opened,the amount of frost on the evaporator coil,etc and is determined by sensors in the units walls

Amana SXD23VE quit cooling 3rd time

wel there are 2 thermostats in this unit, a defrost thermostat(very common to go bad) but would mainly affect refig sect and the freezer only slightly, the other is a cold control thermo affecting both freezer and refrig, if this goes bad you get NO cooling, looking at the diagram for the refrig it has a defrost timer under the righthand side of the kickplate, i would try advancing the timer, with a screw driver you can manual turn the plastic gear on the timer( i believe on yours its problaby a pink knob. its possible that the timer has gone bad and the unit is stuck in a defrost mode, try turning it ever so slightly, youll hear it "clicking" as you do , it should "snap" into arun mode and everthy kick on for it is stuck in defrost(worth a try anyway)

GE Profile SxS Refrigerator wont defrost after new heater installed

If one coil was burnt out and you replaced the heaters and defrost terminator switch I would recheck the continuity through the defrost heaters. You can do this with an Ohm meter with the refrigerator unplugged. If you had an open coil in one of the heaters you did not have to replace the thermo disk. If you have a complete circuit through the heaters try using the old thermo disk. If you have a meter you can check the voltage from the heater connection on one side to the inlet side of the thermo disk with the refrigerator running in the defrost mode. You should read 115-125 Volts on the meter. This reading tells you that the defrost timer is supplying power to the heater circuit.

Ge Profile refrigerator

Yes your refrig is not defrosting automatically. You can start by removing the shelves in the freezer than removing the rear panel (the panel that is frosted half way). Use hair dryer to defrost ice from coil. This will restore your refrig temporarily. Your refrig has a pretty advance defrost system and is not easy to test. If you have a meter (volt-ohmmeter) i can help with diagnosis.
