Question about Intertherm P3RA-048K Air Conditioner
I replased defrost board & sensor unit still does not go into defrost
Did you check the solenoid on the reversing valve? Has the compressor ever been replaced?
Most reversing valves are normally in heat pump mode, and when the solenoid is energized, it is in A/C mode (in summer cooling, the valve is energized.). If the solenoid is bad, then the unit can not switch to defrost.
If the compressor has been replaced, there is a chance that the reversing valve might have some trash in it, preventing it from switching over. Lightly tap on the valve when defrost or A/C mode is being asked for.

First unplug the unit
from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the
doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the
freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections.
Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24
hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section.
It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then
check, if the problem returns again. Then its defrost board problem.
If it's again building up ice that means the unit is not defrosting. It's starting the cooling procedure, and then while defrosting, it's not working. The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
