Please check you model. if it is a new model. most likely it is now using the adaptive defrost which is controlled by the pcb. no more mechanical timer.

if you will find the diagram and it would say you have a timer. you can look at the front, if you take the front grill off. sometimes they are located at the center wall between the drain pan and the condenser.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Why aren't refrig and ice maker working?


You need to allow the fridge to fully defrost now. (Even if it is a ''frost free'' unit that doesn't require ''defrosting''). If the fridge was closed during most of the power outage, it partially ''melted'' and then _froze_ solid when the power came back on. Let it totally defrost, unplugged _with doors open_ for 24 hours and it will be ok. (I realize that is a problem with food, but it must be done).

Frigidaire GLHS269ZCB4 after power outage Freezer not cooling fridge warmer hear the fan click and short cycle


Hello Wayne, thank you for allowing me to assist you. Was the freezer unplugged during the power outage? If it was, here are some simple troubleshooting steps you need to take:

It is best to unplug the unit and wait for the power to come back on.

Next, turn the control to off (or digital display), plug the unit in and reset control to factory-suggested setting.

Do not open freezer door unnecessarily if freezer is off for several hours. Make sure the refrigerator plug is tightly pushed into electrical outlet and not plugged into a GFI.

If your unit has no power and it is not due to a power outage, check the following:

Verify that the temperature control is set to the OFF position.
Set temperature controls to proper setting suggested by your owner's guide; or set to the halfway point and adjust it up or down as needed.

If these basic troubleshooting tips prove ineffective, the power loss may have possibly caused a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or wiring harness. At this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

Mini Fridge crackling noises in freezer compartment


If this is a new unit there should be no "crackling" noise. I would suggest calling for a repair since the unit should be under warranty.

The newest defrost feature in modern fridges is the electronic adaptive defrost control board. Maytag/Jenn Air has one version, see diagram...to put this adaptive defrost style of fridge into defrost, short with a small screwdriver between L1 and test on the adaptive defrost board, wait 3 seconds and you should hear a "click" noise from the relay and the fridge will shut off and go through a defrost cycle.

Your defroster mechanism inside the unit has gone out. What this is is a long tube that heats up to maintain the ice from forming as you say. It possibly went out at the last defrost cycle as you had stated. this defrost cycle is done by the fridge on its own as the has been designed to do. I would suggeest having the unit serviced by a tech since you have an intergrated system. Good Luck on your Repairs

Drain in freezer plugs up


sometimes can be solved by loosely coiling a piece of solid copper wire around the defrost heating element and down into the drain a little. the radiant heat on the wire during defrost cycle may help keep the drain open

Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough


If the problem just gradually started happening, it's possibly the defrost cycle that's not working right. Fridge doesn't defrost, the cooling system ices up, and the cold air can no longer travel through the fridge.

You can tell that's the problem if you fully defrost the fridge (turn it off for a day), then start it up again. If it works OK for a while, then does the same thing after a few weeks that's what it is. Either way, you need a repair person to fix it, or you need to defrost it regularly, but then what do you do with your food while you do that???

What make and model is this unit. It sounds like it could be an error code. Possibly a thermal fuse or something in the defrost cycle. Try unpluging the unit for 15 mins and plug it in again. It will at least reset it and it may run until it hits the defrost cycle again. You are most likely going to require service.
