Inside the control panel.
this unit has adaptive defrost circuit board.
Remove the control knobs.
Take a butter knife and go behind the front trim panel from the top. Snap it forward carefully.
Remove the screws holding the control panel in place.
Carefully lower the case. There will be a damper rod connected on the left side. Disconnect it only if you have to. Pay attention to re-hooking.

Where is the location of the freezer defrost timer


The defrost timer is usually located in the top of the refrigerator compartment or in some older models its located in the base of the unit. Normally you will see a small 3/8" hole in front of the timer that is used to move the defrost timer manually with a regular (flat type) screwdriver.

Freezer is not deforsting


If your model you listed is a TFX27PRBWW it will have a defrost timer located in the fresh food compartment and behind the controls. It's location is 257 in this photo HERE I would like you to turn the timer clockwise slowly until youi hear the compressor and fans stop. This should put the refrigerator into defrost if the defrost heater is still working. Did you hear any crackling or sizzle when place into defrost this way? Wait up to 35 minutes for the timer to come out of defrost and it should restart the refrigerator compressor and fans. If it does not come on automatically then simply turn the timer slowly clockwise again until they do restart. If you need to turn timer again to start refrigerator you will need to replace the timer=> WR9X489 Defrost Timer

If the defrost timer is not the problem then we move to the freezer side, remove the rear panel of freezer and defrost the frost covering the evaporator as in this photo HERE The model TFX27PRBWW takes a=> WR51X10055 Defrost Heater Assembly
2_1_2013_8_53_33_pm.jpg

and the defrost thermostat=> WR50X122 Defrost Thermostat
2_1_2013_9_08_25_pm.jpg

The defrost heater is location 230 and the defrost thermostat is location 24 in this photo HERE Instructions in testing these parts are located on the parts pages I listed above. Please let me know if the model number is different than the one above your post so I may help you better, Thanks Sea Breeze

I can't find the wiring diagram for my whirlpool refridgerator.... MOD.#ET19RKXFN01 SER.#EG3222178. Can you please help. I need to change the defrost timer.....Thanks


I will try to locate a wiring diagram for your model ET19RKXFN01 but to change the defrost timer you will only need to know its location. Here is a link to the repair parts=> ET19RKXFN01_Repair_Parts_List
Go to page 5 of the repair parts list and you will see item number 4 Then on page 6 of the parts list you will see the timer part number beside the item 4. That is your defrost timer part number 2193084 Defrost Timer
11_30_2012_6_26_54_am.jpg


Your refrigerator is an older model and may have the wiring digram in a packet behind the kick plate in the front near floor. Changing the defrost timer will not require use of a wiring diagram. Simply remove the old timer and replace the new defrost timer by plugging it into the wiring harness. The defrost timer can be found behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment where the controls are located above the top shelf. If you have questions just let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

8_16_2012_6_32_05_pm.jpg

found inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel. Click HERE for the location. Part location number 648 is the defrost timer. Location number 618 is the=> WR51X10038 Defrost Heater Assembly
8_16_2012_6_39_15_pm.jpg
If you change the defrost heater then you should also change the WR50X10071 Defrost Thermostat
8_16_2012_6_44_55_pm.jpg


and that is the location number 620 found HERE First I want you to try turning the defrost timer slowly clockwise until compressor and fans stop. Leave like this up to about 30 minutes. You should hear crackling and sizzle noise inside the freezer. If after 30 minutes the compressor and fans do not restart this will indicate the defrost timer and that part will need replaced. Try that first and let me know what happens. I will be here to answer questions if you like, Thanks Sea Breeze

My Hotpoint CSX203A side by side refrigerator is warm on refrigerator side, but freezer side is fine.


Let's begin by looking for the defrost timer in photo here=> CSX20BABCWH Fresh Food Section Controls The part number is=> WR9X489 Sounds like you are not getting defrost and this is the most likely reason. Turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly until compressor and fans stop. Allow to remain like this up to 30 minutes and open freezer door and then listen for sizzling or crackle noise. This will indicate the fridge is in defrost. If the timer does not restart the compressor after this time simply turn again slowly clockwise until it starts. If this works the timer needs replaced. You have two other parts the defrost heater and defrost thermostat to check if the above does not work. Then click here=> .CSX20BABCWH Freezer Section Components See the part location 230 is your=> WR51X442 Glass Tube Heater Then finally the defrost thermostat is part location 240 and part number=> WR50X122 Defrost Thermostat
Try the timer first and let me know how that comes out and I will go through replacing the defrost Heater and defrost thermostat once I know how the fist test works. If helpful please rat if not then please tell me what I can answer from here, Thank You Sea Breeze

I am trying to respond to the defrost refrigerator problem but can't tell how to do so. The model is 106.70203990 Kenmore Elite Coldspot. I need to know how to troubleshoot the defrost timer and/or...


the defrost timer should be in the center hood, hanging from the refer section,
if you look up you should see the bottom of the timer
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelsearch_model.aspx?image=1&part_id=3110896&model_id=410075&pkw_=timer&x=14&y=16
it will look like this
you can turn it with a flat head
turn it till it till it clicks and the machine shuts off
it should turn the machine on in 20 mins or so
if it does its probaly good
the defrost heater is behind the back wall
its looks like a straight element , they best way to test this is to ohm it out,
no continuity, its no good
next while your behind the wall
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelsearch_model.aspx?image=1&part_id=3135377&model_id=410075&pkw_=thermostat
look for this part its your defrost tstat
make sure it looks just like the picture and not popped
sometimes this will actually pop open and be obviously bad
