Manual defrost usually takes about 2-3 hours, depending on how much is built up. You can speed things up by using a hair dryer (just be careful not to allow water to splash inside of the dryer.).

As for the slide at the bottom, I could not tell you without seeing the unit, manual, or sales brochure.

Why is my fridge freezing up in my candy fridge freezer


Hello there,
The reason your fridge is freezing up is simply because there is a problem with the defrost unit of the refrigerator. The defrost thermostat simply could have gone bad and therefore is not getting the defrost heater to start work.
Have the defrost thermostat tested and replaced once found faulty.
Hope this was of help to you. All the best Elect_Comp

At the moment I would look inside the fresh food section and behind the controls there there you will find the defrost timer. On most you need not take the control panel apart but look for a hole with a plastic plug covering the hole. The part is=> 68233-2 Defrost Timer 8 Hour You may also manually defrost your refrigerator by unplugging the power and removal of frozen good to a ice chest. Either use a hair drier once removal of the rear panel in back of freezer or place a bucket of hot water inside and close the door and wait. Sometime beaware that a lot of water will drain to the defrost condensate pan near compressor and may overflow if not careful. If the timer seems to work then we need to test the defrost heater and defrost thermostat=>

Instructions are on the lower part of that page on how to test with an OHM meter.

sea_breeze_138.jpg Turn the timer clockwise slowly until the compressor and fans stop. That should manually place the refrigerator into defrost. After a minute or so open the freezer door and listen for crackling or sizzle noise. That will be the sound of defrost. Wait about 30 minutes until timer comes out of defrost itself and if not turn the timer again until compressor and fans start again. If this works out like this then replace the timer. If not then we need to go inside the=> Freezer Compartment Components

I have a candy fridge freezer - the freezer is fine. When the fridge to turned up to max - the food in it is not cold. How can I resolve this? If I defrost the fridge - could this help? Thks


Defrosting the freezer will temporally solve the problem. There could be a problem with the defrost cycle or the evaporator fan. a technician can help you there

New pcb not turning compressor , but the old one does when pluged in


Does your New PCB have a defrost timer attached? If it does, you will need to wait for the defrost cycle to complete before the compressor will start.

I have a candy frostfree fridge freezer GL90AA; it never switches off,i.e. I can hear it run all the time.


If it is not reaching the cut off temp because
the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
How to check everythinghttp://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Magic Chef refridgerator with small built in freezer model#MCBR 980W. Defrosting instructions unclear; red button suppose to be pushed in for defrosting the small freezer, How is it suppose to actually...


I just defrosted my cooler and looked at the manual. It says that you should do it when the ice is only a 1/4 inch thick. Then it will do it without any effort. Well of course i waited till it was about 1 1/2 inches thick. The defrost button does help though. i pushed it and waited 3 hours and that loosened up the ice around the box. Then used an ice pick, flat head skrew driver, and a painters 5 in 1 tool. I cleaned the inside of the freezer fairly eaisly and let the rest of the defrost process clean the top and the sides of the box which i couldn't reach.

- fridge not working following defrost


There must be a model number on the unit somewhere. Look on the door jambs on the cabinet (not door) side of the open doors.

Most modern day freezers have automatic defrost systems built in. If your does not defrost, then we need to troubleshoot why.

Post your model number, and we can proceed, assuming you or someone you know, knows how to use a multimeter and read a schematic/wiring diagram, with my help.
