SOURCE: Refridgerator not cool enough.

Our Kenmore bottom freezer (made by Amana) did the same thing -- technician replaced both the defrost timer and and the defrost thermostat -- that seems to have fixed problem.

Hi, The timer board is located in the control panel. Remove the control knobs and then pry the front plate with a thin flat blade. It will pop off. You will find 2 screws behind the plate and 2 on the back side of the control panel. Here is a picture.
Please let me know if this helps you.

Thanks

SOURCE: Where is the defrost timer in a GE GSS22JET

Defrost timer should be located at the back of the fridge at the bottom around the compresser, it is usually a little black box. Is the evaperator in the freezer iced up? If it is not, I would check the thermostat for proper operation or the compresser. If the compresser is very hot and not running, your compresser is on its way out, but if it is running and there is a hot line and cold line coming off of the compresser then I would say you have a plugged cap tube ( the metering device that gos into the evaperator in the freezer). In which case a repair man needs to cut about six inches off of it and re fill the refrigerant.

Defrost timer location on a kenmore refridgerator model 10645492400


I don't think your model number is correct in most cases your defrost timer or adaptive defrost board is located wherever your temperature controls are.

I can't find the wiring diagram for my whirlpool refridgerator.... MOD.#ET19RKXFN01 SER.#EG3222178. Can you please help. I need to change the defrost timer.....Thanks


I will try to locate a wiring diagram for your model ET19RKXFN01 but to change the defrost timer you will only need to know its location. Here is a link to the repair parts=> ET19RKXFN01_Repair_Parts_List
Go to page 5 of the repair parts list and you will see item number 4 Then on page 6 of the parts list you will see the timer part number beside the item 4. That is your defrost timer part number 2193084 Defrost Timer

Your refrigerator is an older model and may have the wiring digram in a packet behind the kick plate in the front near floor. Changing the defrost timer will not require use of a wiring diagram. Simply remove the old timer and replace the new defrost timer by plugging it into the wiring harness. The defrost timer can be found behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment where the controls are located above the top shelf. If you have questions just let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Hello, I have a siemens upright refridgerator/freezer no KG32U123gb with a fully working refridgerator, however the freezer has recently started to defrost on a regular basis, the temperature rising from...


Your defrost timer is probably staying on too long, or the defrost thermostat is not sensing that the temperature was that high. It does tell you that the defrost heater is operational, just that it is staying on too long.

The refridgerator is not staying cold. The


DEFROST PROBLEM
The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. 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 because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others. You can post your model number into one of several appliance parts sites on the internet and search for defrost components to find your parts.

Freezer works fine but refridgerator doesn't


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, 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

Frigidaire electrolux model # FRT1865AW6


The defrost systems is:
218169802 HEATER-DEFROST
5303917954 THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
5303917954 TIMER-DEFROST

Start with the timer. it in the refer middle top . there is a knob you can turn it slowly with a screwdriver .until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...

You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.

let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

Kenmore refridgerator c1065094881


It sounds like your defrost cycle has stopped working. unplug your fridge for 24 hours and let it defrost. plug it back after 24 hour and if it starts to cool in the fridge part at about 40 degrees F. you will have to replace one of three parts the Defrost Timer, Defrost Themo or Defrost Element. I hope this helps you.
