SOURCE: where is the defrost timer located for my GE GS25jfmc fridge

Timer is usually located in rear of unit at bottom. Look for a plastic part with 3 or 4 wires sticking out. It has a one way screw driver slot for manually advancing. This part may be located in the cooler behind a plastic cover.

Sounds as if the actual defrost tube has gone bad. What this defroster does is keep the build up of ice from the inside of the freezer. This defrost tube is located between the freezer and fridge just above the evaporator fan motor inside the fridge. You can possibly access the area from the bottom of the freezer unless it is a bottom freezer with fridge on top then the access would be from the fridge base.

An appliance parts house should have the diagram for this replacement if you take the model and serial number to them they may give you a printed diagram of the part needing to be replaced.

Good luck hope this helped you some

SOURCE: The evaporator keeps freezing up,


Since you did not give brand or model number i cannot give you spefic direcetions on your refrig. However all defrost systems regarelass of brand work exactly and ill tell ya what to check
The defrost system is comprised of 3 parts

Defrost heater-- it usually is at bottom of the evap. coil, to check it remove wires to it ,use a meter set to the lowest ohms setting and check for somewhere between 10-50 ohms if that is what yours is its good if meter reads OL replace defrost heater

Defrost thermostat-- if clips to the top of the evap. coil and is metallic,round , about the diameter of a quarter with a plastic side with 2 wires coming from it(do not confuse it w.thermister),remove wires and check for ZERO ohms WHEN TESTING IT MUST BE COLD so check it when frost is built up,IF meter reading is OL (WHEN COLD) its the problem

Defrost timer or defrost control if has digital display to show tempature
check timer(it could be anywhere except in freezer) by turning till you hear a click,the deforst heater should come on within 5 minutes if its good,if defrost doesn't come on its either the of the above parts (heater/t-stat)
defrost control is hard for unskilled lay persons to check so if heater and defrost t-stat are good replace control

Hope this helps,

My Hitachi indoor unit model RAS-26CHA1 is not giving out any cool air. The fan is working and have checked via manual. But manual does not have a trouble shooting section. Can you please assist me in...

To get cool keep temp setting 23 degree and mode in "cool" position. After compressor start, keep your hand on discharge pipe line (Smaller pipe), if it's warm your unit is starting cool. And also check with Amps meter for reading as per in name plate with the unit. If amps very less than specified, it's under gas leak.You have find out leak and arrest. Then charge gas.

Compact refrigerator Model 88031-1.8 cubic feet Not cooling, blown fuse in trouble shooting page, where is it located if that is the problem?

If your compressor is running there is no chance off any blown fuse but a weakness of the compressor or low gas pressure.
You can shut down and switch on after about few hours, if it cools then you must check the thermostat and the auto defrost section. If not the compressor/gas can be the suspect.
If compressor is not runningg check behind on the lower section for the relay mounted on the compressor.

Good day,
You have an auto defrost system failure. There are on most makes 3 components, any of which if they fail, can cause your problem. Without a make and model number it would be difficult to try to cover trouble shooting, but here is an excellent tutorial on the basics of that part of your machine..

Kenmore frostless 19 temp. control knob

i've pulled up the service diagram for it and there's no thermostat or temperature control but there's a limit sensor inside the freezer I'm sure that such sensor is failing and when it defrosts, it stays on to long, and the whole 15 min defrost cycles goes on causing the freezer to warm up, delaying the freezing process. I'm almost sure that the limit is going.
