is the compressor running? can u hear it? the defrost timer may have gone out and stopped on defrost? do u see or hear the fan going? u can manually turn it off defrost by inserting a small philips screwdriver into the tiny hole or slot under the defrost timer in the fridge. and turn it clockwise till u hear it click this will turn the defrost cycle off and u should then hear the motor and fan come on? this will give another 8 hours before it gets stuck agin andf u have to go in and turn it off agin till u replace the timer or cold control thermosttat
Check and lobe the fans! The evaporation coil fan could be stuck, worn out or blocked. That fan is the cold air circulator and if it doesn't work, nothing will get cold! Also check the condenser fan usually located next to the compressor to blow room temp air across the condensing coil and across the defrost drain water pan. It's the hardest working fan and really takes the worst beating with dust, pet hair and heat.
most of the time these are either stuck in defrost or cold control is bad and sometimes the overload on compressor is bad...the relay can be bad or even the compressor.....BUT, check cold control and see if its stuck in defrost..no model given , but locate defrost timer...if a manual type..you can advance it out of defrost. if it comes back on..order new timer...if not it..remove cold control and make bypass on terminals to see if it comes on.., is , order new cold control,,...UNPLUG before doing anything
If freezer is icing up, 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
We need to check to see if your freezer is defrosting properly. I am pretty sure your refrigerator has a defrost timer located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside the freezer to have a good look at the evaporator. If frozen over defrost with a hair dryer. Then let me know so we can test the defrost heater and thermostat. Your model shows a defrost timer and that is the most likely reason if you find the freezer evaporator coils frozen over. See if you can locate the timer first and turn the timer slowly clockwise until compressor stops. Wait 25 minutes and the timer should turn the compressor back on. If it does not the the timer will need replaced. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze
