Question about Refrigerators
Yesterday, fridge not working. Light is on, but no one home. Chinese firedrill for perishables. Left plugged in. Unplugged this a.m. and plugged back in and voila everything starts up. Freezer works and fridge starting to get cold. I am suspicious as this summer we had water drainage (my husband ignored it and said it was just condensation...won't go into procrastination issues...)
Snooped around on internet also called appliance parts guy who thinks that it's the adaptive defrost timer. He told me that it would probably work again and then shut down in about a week.
I think that I could replace this part, but need to know where it is, exactly. I have a picture of the part itself from the web, but don't know where to look.
Would appreciate any help.
Here are a few troubleshooting tips on this page
I can find you the part you need if you post me the model of your fridge.
model or part number anything you can find will be helpful, add the details with add a comment button and Il see if I can find you the part.
you can also try looking for the part yourself from this webpage
but I will help if you post me the details.

The tech could be right and he could be wrong. adaptive defrosting is being controlled by the main board. which controls cooling as well and your thermostat.
if you have ice build up in your freezer section, back part, then it could be the adaptive defrosting not functioning but it is not a separate part as if it is a mechanical timer. it is part of the sofware of the fridge and it is in the main control board.
if it is icing up at the back of the freezer section. it could still be two more things,
the defrost heater could be open and would not heat.
or the bimetal which would controll the heater in case it would overheat.
if you can post the part which the tech is talking about, then i could help you further. use the ask me button to direct a question to me.
