The defrost timer is about 6 inches square and about 2 inches thick. It could be located under the box, in front or back. Some models of Whirlpool and Kenmore locate it behind the cover over the light inside the box. Westinghouse is often inside the cooler compartment, in the top. Some Gibson boxes put it in the back, about chest high. It's often hidden, but every self-defrosting refrigerator has one, except for a few models of Whirlpool and Kenmore with factory-installed ice makers — these models have an icemaker which also has the defrost timer built into it. The timer will have a stem that protrudes, or may be flush, which you can turn using a large blade screwdriver. Mark the position with a pencil, then turn it until it "clicks." This should start the defrost mode. The defrost mode will continue for 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the design. If after 20 minutes, the refrigerator has not restarted, or the timer stem has not moved, the timer is bad. When replacing the timer, you must use the correct one. There are about a dozen different configurations with even more types of connections. I suggest you order the part by make, model number, and serial number of your refrigerator to make sure you get the right one. Depending on your brand, and where you purchase the part, the price may be from $20 to $40 for this part.


Hope you get it right..

Regards

Wouter.

Which is better pulse defrost or adaptive defrost?


pulse and adaptive def actuall work in tandem with one another. what happens is the computer will put the refrig into a short def cycle and test how long it takes the termination switch to open this determines when it is time for the unit to go into a full term def the next time. adaptive defrost looks for the number of door openings and how long it takes for the def termination switch to open during a regular defrost. most units will go into def every -12 hours with adaptive if the conditions are right it can go as long as 2 or 3 days between def cycles. both systems are very relaible and trouble free. the pulse defrost is available on higer end electronic control refrig and is also adaptive defrost system as well. whirlpool also has adaptive defrost only available on their midline units as well as some higher end manual control units.\\

Do not defrost


Yes. This refrigerator has whats called an Adaptive Defrost Control or ADC board. It is located to the right of the thermostat controls and has between 4 and 6 wires going to it. Hope that helps.

Fridge is not cooling at all. Just replaced the defrost heater because ice all on back of freezer.


there are 3 components in the defrost circuit line def. heater, def. t-stat., and def. timer / adaptive def. control. with that being said frigidiare rf are more than likely to have a bad def. t-stat on models made before 2003 and the adc fails on model made after that time

Traulsen URS36DT:


checking a def system is kind of easy. if you have located the defrost timer just turn the little knob on the timer until the unit shuts off, shortly you should hear "hissing and pooping" from water dropping on the heater. this lets you know that the defrost thermostat is good. if you dont hear this noise check your def thermostat and heater for continuity. if you put it into def and the heater comes on then you have a bad timer..
