Question about Kenmore 62232 / 62234 / 62239 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
We are renting a house and this refrigerator came with the house, so I know nothing about it. The freezer is frosted up in the back and is not keeping frozen things frozen. I did not realize there was a non frost-free freezer made these days!! What do I do besides defrost it??
The reason it is not defrosting is one of three things. First and most likely is that the Defrost Thermestat (aka BiMetal) is open and needs to be replaced, secondly it could be that the defrost timer is bad and lastly the heater can be bad. The bimetal and heater are found behind the back panel in the freezer section. The time is usually located near the controls in the fridge section. I would need you entire model number to tell you exactly where it is. To replace the either part is fairly straight forward. With the full model number I can walk you through the easiest way to test each part.

James answer worked great for me . I replaced the defrost timer , located behind the light bulb plate in the fridge. Defrosted the freezer manually before replacing timer. Back to normal. My bottom freezer kenmore only costs about 5- 6 dollars a month to operate. Thank you James . Thank you Fixa.com. The part arrived in less than 2 days. :) Very happy with the whole experience.
