SOURCE: Fridge not working

Speed, If your model number begins with 596. This is made by Amana with the Kenmore name. Look at your defrost thermostat that sits on the evaporator, see if its bulged. If it is it's more than likley your problem. Part number 12001937. Your heaters should be calrod and seldom fail. Advance the refer into defrost by turing the mechanical timer clockwise until you hear it click and see if the heater comes on. Should find the timer under the control panel, should be a slot you can use a screw driver to turn it. If the heaters don't come on you can temp. by pass the bi-metal by simply cutting it out,connecting the wires and putting it into defrost again. However, it must be replaced. This is a safety device. If the heater now comes on, it's your bi-metal. If they don't come on with the bi-metal by passed, check for 120V at the heater connection. If no voltage, its your defrost timer. Careful in there your working with live voltage...Catriver post back.

Tell you what, first do a good 12 hour defrost and restart. Chances are you left the door ajar accidentally. (even though you say you never,) Most of the time there is the issue. If it continues after that, let me know and ill go through the defrost procedure (the cheap way)..

Freezer coils are frozen up and the evaportation fan is working. Where is the defrost heater and what does it look like?


http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Defrost-Heater-Assembly/67001794/1022690 is what one looks like (since you didn't give your model number - couldn't look up the one you need)

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/GE-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-GTL21KBXABS/0432/0166000/G0904088/00002 It is item 58 on the diagram, but again not your exact schematic. The defrost heater is normally located very close to the coils.

But if you test your defrost heater and it is good (see video on first link on how to test) then you might have trouble with the thermistat - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/GE-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-GTL21KBXABS/0432/0166000/G0904088/00002 or the timer - http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Defrost-Timer/482493/3348 and some whirlpools even have a defrost control board - http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Defrost-Control-Board/W10353224/1860724

Hope this helps!

1965 Frigidaire unit - heavy ice build up on coils


Sound like the defrost thermistat or heater is bad. Regardless if you have ice block on coils defrost thermistat must be replaced. Even if still good it gets damaged. Empty out fridge and let manually defrost for 24 to 48 hours. With doors open and unplugged. Test heater with a meter to see if its still good. Replace defrost thermistat and plug back in.

Freezer works great, but refrigeration section stopped working


Check the door seals on fridge and freezer to make sure there are NO leaks.
Try manually adjusting air flap that controls air from freezer to fridge, the flap may be frozen or the actuator that controls the flap may be faulty.

Coils freeze up,refridgerator and freezer stops working


The defrost cycle is not working properly, there are three things involved in system. #1 Defrost timer in refrigerator #2 Thermostat on coils to tell if unit is frozen #3 heater element located under coils thaws coils when frozen. the defrost timer if it is manual < located at the front of light assembly panel in top of refrigerator there will be a hole with a plastic piece that resembles a screw strait screw head> it turns and every 8hrs aprox. it stops operations and starts defrost cycle by allowing voltage to the thermostat and if thermostat is frozen it allows power to element for thawing coils. If defrost timer is manual look for direction it is facing and mark edge to see if timer is turning< very slow turning and is easiest way> if you can get an ohm meter ohm the element on high setting< if it has continuity element is operable> check wiring just to be sure not problem. If you find the timer does turn and doesn't stay in one position over 40 minutes then the thermostat is bad.If element fails tesing then the element is bad and if timer stays in one position then it is bad. If unit is equiped with electronic defrost timer and element is good in would replace timer and thermostat to guaranty that resolved problem

My freezer is working but my Fridge is warm?


Sounds like a typical air flow (circulation) problem. This can be due to an evaporator fan not working, a frozen up coil not allowing air flow over it (due to failed defrost system, etc.) or even the damper for the fridge section stuck closed not allowing cold air from the freezer in. The first thing is to check the evap. fan to make sure it's running. It's easy to take the rear interior of the freezer section off and check for fan operation, solid ice on the coils, etc. If the coils have a nice white frost pattern all over then that's ok, but if they are frozen solid block where the air can't flow over them it's a defrost timer, defrost t-stat or defrost heat element (not likely) issue. Usually it's the t-stat or timer that goes out. The t-stat is easy to visually check to see if it's epoxy is "popped" out and of course a continuity check to be sure. The defrost timer is just a swap out sort of thing, not much to test there.
