SOURCE: Freezer thawed. Replaced temperature control, replaced defrost timer, replaced defrost thermostat. Compressor relay is cycling. No cooling still. Help!

Why were those parts changed? Was the compressor cycling on overload at the time?
If so, you should have first replaced the relay/overload combination and the see what happened.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool refrigerator trips the main breaker of 40 Amps

A refrig cannot pull 40 amps in defrost , unless there is a direct short in the defrost system ( timer , heater , bimetal ) . I would use an extention cord ( for test purposes only ) , and try a different plug . Sounds like the circuit breaker is weak . In defrost , the MOST you should get , is 6 amps . This will not throw a 40 amp breaker . If you have an amp meter , remove the back refrig panel behind the refrig , and connect to one of the power cord lines (just not the green ground ) , turn into defrost and check the amps . This will tell you if short is in refrig , or weak breaker .

SOURCE: Where is the defrost timer

Behind the freezer panel at the top usually the right side but sometimes the left , snapped on to the aluminum tube, It's round a little bigger than a quarter, about an inch thick and has 2 wires usually brown and pink.It may be covered in ice if it is not functioning, So you may need a hair dryer to find it.

Refrigerator and freezer not working


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

I have a whirlpool refg that will not auto defrost.


Inside your fresh food compartment is a defrost timer hidden behind the tep. control panel. Most panes have a hole or plug you may need to remove to turn the timer. I need you to turn it clockwise slowly until compressor stops running. Wait about 30 min. to see if the refrigerator comes back on. If not we need to replace the defrost timer part # 482493
That is providing the model number above your post is correct.
Model Whirlpool ET22RKXG?
Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Whirlpool ED25DQ - not colling


Need you to look inside the fresh food compartment and turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly.
d01b0a9.png part number 6 is defrost timer. When you turn it and compressor stops leave it there for 20 minutes and see if the refrigerator comes back on. If not the timer will need to be replaced, Let me know, Sea Breeze

Refrig/freezer just quite working?


The defrost timer is located in the control panel in the fresh food section.
Look up under the panel and see a opening slightly smaller than a dime.
Put the blade of a butter knife in there and turn clockwise a quarter turn.
If the fridge starts working, replace the defrost timer.

Wards/Admiral refrig/freezer


I put the fridge in manual defrost by advancing the timer. The defrost heater worked so the problem was with the timer not advancing to defrost every 6 hours. The plastic gears wear out over time.
