Question about Haier HRF10WNB Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Haier Refrigerator 10.5 Cu.Ft.

It seems the auto defrost kicks on by itself on the third day after the refrigerator has been plugged in/turned on. Its not freezing up and theres no ice build up, so why would the auto defrost process begin? Note: I can always tell when the auto defrost begins because of a very distinct dry smell comes from the refrigerator. What can be causing this? Thank you!

This is a manual defrost unit. There is a push in button on the thermostat knob which puts the unit in defrost mode. Its probably stock in the on position, which is why the unit doesnt cool when it does this. You might have to take the knob apart, or replace the whole assemble if all checked out fine physically.

Water seems to drip down the upper back inside of the fridge, and freezes in droplets, and it also freezes any food pushed up against the back of the fridge.


Hi Ford:
Could you check the drain from the auto defrost?
There will be a rubber tube running down the outside back and it leads to an evap tray under the unit.
At the inside top (where the water seems to be coming from) there should be a funnel that catches the water from the auto defrost. If it is plugged or the drain tube is plugged, you will encounter the problem that you describ.
Hope this helps,
Cheers.

There is a self timer for auto defrosting in the no frost model. There could be possible fault in this setup. Also your thermostat could be another culprit. You will need to call a service technician to give an second opinion but keep these views in mind. Never try to do any work which could be expensive to already a wrong choice of buying a used set w/o warranty. Finally keep your thermostat in diffferent modes and check out for any differance in the fault. Hope my advice is helpful. Good Day.

I believe this is normal behaviour in all auto defrost (which means virtually all modern) fridges. In fact, this short heating period is usually programmed to happen 2 to 3 times a day. You might rightly ask why the refrigerator compartment needs to undergo "defrost" cycles when the compartment is, if the refrigerator is operating correctly, above freezing? The reason is although the compartment is above freezing, its cooling coils are well below freezing temperature, and it's these coils that need the frequent defrosting, before they build up so much frost on them that they "ice up" and no longer allow the fan blown air that cools the refrigerator compartment to pass through them.

Self defrosting fridge/freezer


Good day,
That is normal if the room or area is too cold. If the room temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit then that problem will start to show up.
All manufacturers state the machine will start to unbalance below that temperature.

Sounds like you have a bad deforst heater or defrost limit. If you have to turn it off and let it defrost and it freezes up within 24-48 hours later, that's what you should look for.

The problem is freeze up. Bad door gasket or too much window shopping are the biggest issues. Could be low gas. Either take off the back freezer panel and defrost or unplug for 2 days to defrost fully. Oh, and clean the condenser coil. Then, let's see what the unit does.

It sounds like the defrost timer may be bad,or you might want to ohm out the heater itself. And the only othe part is the terminator witch sounds like you replaced that allready. I would check the heater and if that is good replace the timer itself. Hope this helps

SORRY, YOU NEED A TECHI. THERE. EITHER YOUR TH/STAT IS STICKING OR THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH YOUR AUTO DEFROST UNIT. ALL THINGS TOLD CHECK THAT THE FREEZER OR EVAPORATOR FAN IS RUNNING. IF NOT IT COULD ALSO CAUSE PROBLEMS.
