Question about Whirlpool ER6AHKXPQ Top Freezer Refrigerator
I noticed my fan motor in the freezer making a racket. I thought maybe it was going out. When I took the cover off though, I saw that an accumalation of frost had built up around it. Latelt the freezer has been building up frost then defrosting quickly. I have been told this could be the defrost timer. What is your opinion?
that is just one of the probable problem. you still need to check the other two.
the defrost heater ( heating element).
and the bimetal ( thermo disc).
the heating element, you need to test the resistance. there should be a resistance lower than 100 ohms depending on its wattage and voltage.
the thermodisc or bi-metal, you need to test this while it is frozen. there should be a continuity between the two wires while the unit is frozen. it will open up when it is thawed.
