Pulse and adaptive def actuall work in tandem with one another. what happens is the computer will put the refrig into a short def cycle and test how long it takes the termination switch to open this determines when it is time for the unit to go into a full term def the next time. adaptive defrost looks for the number of door openings and how long it takes for the def termination switch to open during a regular defrost. most units will go into def every -12 hours with adaptive if the conditions are right it can go as long as 2 or 3 days between def cycles. both systems are very relaible and trouble free. the pulse defrost is available on higer end electronic control refrig and is also adaptive defrost system as well. whirlpool also has adaptive defrost only available on their midline units as well as some higher end manual control units.\\

Sys 154 dia 93 pulse 125


Your blood pressure rises with each heartbeat and falls when your heart relaxes between beats. While BP can change from minute to minute with changes in posture, exercise, stress or sleep, it should normally be less than 120/80 mm Hg (less than 120 systolic AND less than 80 diastolic) for an adult age 20 or over.

The normal pulse for healthy adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. The pulse rate may fluctuate and increase with exercise, illness, injury, and emotions. Females ages 12 and older, in general, tend to have faster heart rates than do males.

Heavy Frost on the Coils
This is good! This indicates a defrosting system failure which is a simple control problem. It also means that the sealed system (compressor, evaporator coil, and all associated tubing) is fine as wine in summertime. Defrost system problems are easy fixes that anyone with a pulse can do with maybe just a little help from their friends. The problem will either be the defrost timer (or Adaptive Defrost Control board, if so equipped), the defrost thermostat, or the defrost heater. To locate these parts in your fridge, check out these cool, interactive parts diagrams.

How to check True GDM-49 defrost timer?


The model KSRG25FK has a W10353224 Defrost Control Board that is also used as Adaptive defrost meaning it tries to conserve defrost to prevent repeated defrost that timers use, This tends to save wasted energy yet has its problems of its own because it is electronic and as always electronics fail. The word adaptive is used because the electronic defrost attempts to prevent unneeded defrost to save energy. I will try to explain while using Whirlpools Service Manual without provoking Whirlpools multiple defrost systems Copyright Material. If Whirlpool ask that I remove this Manual I will at their request. You will need free download to open this Manual. Click Here=> Defrost Systems Explained Thank You, Sea Breeze

The Whirlpool Gold refrigerator is not cooling and the bottom freezer has ice formed on the back of the freezer. I purchased the refrigerator in February 2009.


If you can hear the fan running in the freezer you have a defrost issue. Depending on the Model number it can be a timer, adaptive defrost board, a bi-metal themostat, or heater.

Fridge side stays cold for about 3 weeks or less and loose temperature, turn off for 1 hour and its back to normal.


Some newer refrigerators have been using an electronic board instead of an mechanical defrost timer. The adaptive defrost control does the same job as the defrost timer ( shuts off the refrigerator cooling items and redirects the power to the defrost heater for the defrosting cycle, then redirects the power to the compressor and fans to come back on when the defrost cycle is over ). This adaptive defrost system is a bit different when testing, normally speaking if the defrost heater and defrost thermostat ohm ok, we replace the adaptive defrost board.

Freezer works but frig not cold.


Probably a defrost problem. See if there is any frost inside the freezer. If yes, then it probably is the defrost timer. If the unit does not use a timer, it could be the adaptive defrost control. Might also be the defrost heater or defrost termination thermostat, but I would doubt that on a Whirlpool

GE side by side GSS20IEP Refrigerator freezer freezing


this is a problem that is no stranger to most GE side by sides; GE has used a glass type defrost heater in the freezer which often fails. If you manually defrost your appliance (unplug and leave doors open for 24 hrs) then plug back in, it will appear to work normally for a few days and gradually build up frost on the evap panel (back panel in the freezer) and eventually the refrigerator side will seem to loose cooling due to frosted damper, or lack of cold air transfer over the evap coil. The fix for this is to replace the defrost heaters (s). While not as common, defrost thermostats can open causing the unit to skip defrost, and even less likely is the defrost control (either mechanical timer or adaptive defrost). First, defrost your appliance, then remove the evap panel and ohm out the heater(s), if open, replace. If they check ok, check your defrost thermostat (small disc like object attached by a clip on the evap. coil itself) for signs of popping open or open ohm readings at normally closed temperatures. Its a good idea to change this anyway when replacing defrost heaters as the two work hand in hand. Last, check the defrost timer by manually advancing the screw advance clockwise until you hear the first click, then check voltage to the defrost heater and thermostat, if no voltage present replace timer. If your appliance is equipped with a adaptive defrost board, refer to the schematic for proper diagnostics.
