Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I think my defrost system is broke, I used to hear it defrost every few days, now I dont hear it at all and I always notice my coils are frozen. How do I start fixing it?
Start by opening the freezer door and listen for a fan blowing. As long as the compressor is running the inside fan should be running. If it is running go to next item. If it isn't running that is the problem. Need to replace the inside fan.
Next step locate the defrost timer usually in the same housing that the thermostat is. Now look for a screw driver recessed area that would allow a flat screw driver to turn or advance the timer. It only turns one way so be carefull. Advance the timer till you hear a click that should be defrost. Now wait approx. 30 minutes and see if the timer has advanced on it's own. Should be out of defrost and back in cooling cycle. let me know what you find out on these two solutions. ken
