This may be his invention (or perversion) of a defrost timer that makes defrosting automatic.
The timers are ~$35-50 US and if located as most are, under the unit, behind the grill and in the front, it is not that tough to replace.
May I suggest you log onto the Better Business Bureau website if you are in the US and check their membership for a trustworthy service company. This outfit does not sound like they will be found on the BBB list.

Kenmore fridge leaks water on floor and then stops cooling. Tech said it needed heater/defroster and would cost $500. Does this sound right.


Ah no. If the fridge was not defrosting then water would not be leaking out.
It sounds like the defrost timer is not completing it's cycle. You may need a new defrost timer.
The cost of a new timer, call out, fitting and testing could be around $375

A clicking sound is made in the vicinity of the compressor and turns something on and then off. The fan works and the fridge or the freezer is appropriately cold so, what could this new sound be?

The bottom shelves of my freezer are not working, its not freezing the food.


Possible that the compressor is not having the needed pumping pressure. So check if there is frosting within the freezer , a clear case of auto defrost not working. If so shut down for 6 hours and start, if cooling returns to tray then check on the auto defroster timer, the thermostat or the heater. If there is no cooling still the compressor or the gas pressure is down. Fill after confirming there is no leak.

Freezer not cooling and refrigerator not cooling. Fan is blowing but only warm air. The compressor makes a humming sound every so often.

Have a lg lfx25960st has frost on back wall of freezer fan was making grinding noise now no noise and wont freeze ice thanks d hopper


Older freezers have a mechanical timer that shuts the cooling unit off and activates a heating element to melt the ice that forms on the cooling coils next to the fan. Newer ones control it with a circuit board. It sounds like yours is not defrosting and the ice buildup has stopped the fan. Or the fan could be bad and without the airflow thru the cooling coils they are covered with ice.
You need to remove a cover inside the unit to get to the fan, cooling coils, and defroster heating element. There could also be a thermostat attached to the heating element that will need to be checked.
Unplug the unit, disconnect the heating element and check for continuity ( with an ohms tester ) , it should give some reading on the tester. You will need to talk to a repair shop to get the exact ohms it should read. If you have a friendly repair person, they will tell you how to check everything out.

Freezer not cold enough...I tried cleaning vent for fan because it was filthy...I had a feeling the compressor was overheating....touched compressor, hot to touch....freezer started to get progressively...


sound like the gas has escaped so may be cheaper to buy a new one as the radiator on the back should be hot exchanging the heat from the freezer to the radiator & cooling the freezer!
hope this helps, but I say buy a new one as you could have other problems & end up spending more money !

FREEZER ICED OVER, LOWER COMPARTMENT NOT COOLING


Well, if the service person said the defroster is not the problem, there must be a good reason. But, I would go with a faulty defrosting system. Most likely suspects are the defrost timer and the defrost heating element.
