Http://www.fixya.com/support/p113437-emerson_mw8107wa_1000_watts_microwave/manual-11318/page-25 Here is the page of your owners manual that shows how to auto defrost. It is a bit hard to read. If you have your owners manual still, it is on page 24. Hope this helps.

Why does the auto defrost turn on and off intermittently


Cycling automatic defrost makes thawing a gradual process that prevents pre-cooking.

You read the weight of the food on package (in lbs)
Put the food on a microwave safe plate /container.
Close the door.
Press the Defrost by weight button
Enter the weight of the food. The time will be set automatically.
If you have a defrost by time, just decide on the time duration and enter it

Microwave buzzes and runs automatically


It sounds like it's time to get a new one. They have some that are relatively inexpensive these days. I usually check out http://bestmicrowavereview.com before purchasing any microwave.

I am getting power and the freezer appears to be working but the fridge is not cold at all, any suggestions? Many thanks Dave McRae


Hi Dave and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Take a look in the back of the freezer compartment. Look for any signs of icing on the back access cover. Usually but not always the evaporator coils freeze up because the unit is not automatically defrosting properly or there is a problem with the evaporator fan not running fast enough / at all. Press gently with your hand of the back cover of the freezer compartment and feel for ice. Also check the front of the chassis for signs of being HOT. It is ok to be warm not hot.
Also check to see that the light goes on and off as you actuate the light switch plunger. Some units have the door switch in the top of the door hinge but most have the switch in the door fold area of the chassis some where.

If you find that the evaporator coils have iced up:
  • Perform a manual defrost of the unit but first unplugging it
  • Remove the freezer contents
  • Direct an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hrs. (makes a water mess)
  • After 2 hrs clean up the water mess and return the unit to normal service.
  • Watch after 3 days if the fresh food compartment once again starts warming up. If it does you have and automatic defrosting problem.
No ice noted:
  • Possible temp control problem (Thermostat / cold control or thermistor)
  • Possible Air Damper problem. There are 2 kinds of air dampers. One is electrically controlled and the other is nothing but a mechanical baffle that is positioned partially open. If you have the electrical type the air damper motor may have failed or the movable baffle is stuck.
Front of chassis is almost HOT to the touch vs warm:
  • Open the back of the unit by removing the black fiberboard cover and inspect for lint and that the condenser fan is running anytime the compressor is running.
Light always on:
  • Door switch failure. Some door switches also control the evaporator fan along with water in door and ice in door functions. The water and ice in door should NOT work with the door open.
The above is pretty much an in home repair techicians check list for the symptom you describe.
If you discover that you have an automatic defrosting problem I will need you MAKE & MODEL number via your next response here so I can tell you what you can do to troubleshoot. (
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Build-up of soft ice all over in the freezer


Do a manual defrost of the unit. Unplug it.. empty the freezer and place a fan b l o w i n g into the freezer for about 2 hours.
After the manual defrost return the unit to normal service.

If the soft build up of ice shows up again take a very hard look at the door seals. Look for tears.. gaps or any place the gasket is no longer attached to door face

This unit should defrost about every 10 hours. If it does not automatically defrost,,,, doing a manual defrost will only keep the unit going if you repeat the manual defrosting drill every 2 - 3 days.

If it just never goes into the automatic defrost cycle at all, the control board could have failed. PN: W10116216

A failed defrost heating element can also cause this. Item 10 this link:

I need instructions for the Bond Helman, (Personalized Products) Defrost Master 2000 Model # DM-02000. Can you please tell me where I can find the instructions for the defrost master?


Margi_smigie to use your Defrost Maagic 2000 just put hot water in the bottom pan, place frozen food on top and it will defrost. Turn over about half way through. Good luck. I have the mailing address for the company. jellybeanone@verizon.net if you have any questions.

Defrosting buttons and how to use


a defrost on the mic.
this button is a selector of power really, it cyles the heat on and off keeping the actual cooking energy to minimun, just enough to knock down ice crytals
but make no mistake it is working the same just a lower power setting,
you could do the same thing by selecting power level 2-3 for longer times

My refrigerator stopped working and will not come back on. It is a Jenn-Air Side by side purchased 4 years ago.


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
