SOURCE: Frigidaire Model number frs26znh defrost not working?

The defrost systems is:
5303917954 TIMER-DEFROST

Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...

You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.

let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

SOURCE: ge profile artica not cooling

  • Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it.

  • Next, see if the compressor motor is running

    The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

    If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

    • The compressor

    • The Thermostat

    • The overload, relay, or capacitor

    • The defrost timer

    • The condenser fan motor

    Fun run as long as the compressor runs and you do not need to worry about it. the only thing you need to verify are the temperatures in the refrigerator and and freezer compartment: below 40-F, and below 0-F
    if temp ok, do not wory about it.

    Those refrigerators have a lot of issues so if you can return it I would. But you can check to see if the freezer fan and fan by the compressor are working. They should be running whenever the compressor is running. If they are you'll need a technician to check out the rest.

    just keep an eye on your fridge temps over the next few weeks if there ok then its just getting noisy with age but if it doesnt hold its temp then the compressor is on its way out but the compressors very rarely fail i would say its just getting older & noisy.

    Just quit working everything seem to be fine, checked continuity on compressor, o.k., but can't hear it start, and the lines to and from seem room temp.

    The first place to start is with the power off, place an amp clamp around the "common" wire from the compressor. Now turn the power on and check what your amp draw is. If there is no amp draw, then the compressor is not running. Why is the compressor not running? When you say you "checked continuity of the compressor, ok" I take it that you found your run, start, and common windings, and that by doing a little math you determined everything was good. If this is the case, then check to make sure the capacitor is good, and any starting relay that might be used is in correct working order. Hope this helps

    Not cold

    If the compressor seems to be cycling as normal, either the system needs recharged or the temperature controller has failed. If the compressor is running at all, it is probably OK.

    Diagnosing it remotely is only guess-work, I recommend (if in the US) that you check with the local BBB for a trustworthy service company to assess your unit.

    If a recharge is needed, this is not a DIY job since it requires opening a sealed system and soldering it shut after the coolant is at the proper pressure.
    Replacing the temp controller might be possible but better done by a pro since the location of the sensor tip may not be easy to find.

    Another (albeit less likely) is the failure of the defrost timer which could keep the heater on while trying to cool.
    The timer is often located behind the lower trim grill and should be a small box with connections.
    Some have a slotted shaft protruding from the case that can be turned with a common screwdriver.
    Checking the switch contacts inside can be done by waiting until you hear the compressor running and then slowly turning the shaft until the compressor shuts off again; this would represent the defrost cycle.
    If you advance the shaft another 1/4 turn and leave it there, after the compressor stabilizes again, it should turn on.
    Mark the position of the timer shaft and then recheck a couple of hours later.
    If its shaft has turned, the timer is probably OK.
    They typically have either a 24 or 48 hours cycle so the shaft movement isn't easy to detect over a few minutes time.

    Good luck-

    The refrigerator is not cooling

    If your freezer is frosting up, fresh food section is warm: bad fan motor,defrost drain stopped up and forming slab of ice between the freezerand the fresh food section. Check heaters andterminator(defrost thermostat) unplug the ice box and let it defrostcompletely. Clear objects from drain. Check timer. Note to find thelocation of your timer look up your model number online here: APPLIANCEPARTSPROS.COM.
    Check under the bottom for the fan motor to be running and the cobwebs, dust, dirt, and pet hair, off the condenser coils. If the fanunderneath has quit then the ice box won't get cold. BASIC REFRIGERATION REPAIR MANUAL

    I have a GE SxS that I bought in Sept. 06. About

    First you need to turn the freezer temp control back on(That just turned the whole refrigerator off)
    The water dispenser may have stopped due to line freezing inside the refrigerator.
    The ticking could have been the the element for the defrost cycle or the starter on the compressor.
    So,turn it back on,set the temp to a normal setting and if the ticking is still there,wait 30 minutes to see if it stops,If no ticking is there when you restart it,wait 24 hour and check the temp inside as well as the water and ice dispenser,If all work,It is a defrost issue.If so you will either need a defrost timer,defrost element,or defrost thermostat.
    If the ticking is still there,You will need to replace the start/run capacitor.
