Question about Estate Refrigerators
The defroster was not working and my father found that the timer didn't seem to come on at the correct intervals nor run for as long as it was suppose to. It was a continuous timer that was set for 8 hour intervals and would run for 21 minutes. It cut on here and there and would run for 5 to 20 minutes max. He replaced it.
Now every time the compressor kicks on, the timer goes off.
He said the new timer was slightly different but was the replacement for the old one and looked like the wiring was the same.
On most refrigerators the timer is only supposed to run when the compressor is on. It sounds like your replacement timer is incorect, and wired differently. Hope this helps!
