Question about Kelvinator Refrigerators

Open Question

Kelvinator refrigerator model C220HR

This is described as a 220L cyclic 2DR fridge. The unit stopped running. A wire/cable running from the back of the control/thermostat runs thru the back of the cabinet into the rear wall of the unit & does not reappear. If this wire is disconnected the fridge runs but overnight, freezes contents in the unit. Presumably this wiring connects to some sort of defrost or controls the thermostat. As the back & side walls of the fridge are sealed, how is/can this be repaired?

SOURCE: need to relace thermostat on kitchen aid wine cooler kuws246ebl2

Hi, The silver thing is not a wire. It is the sensor tube for the thermostat. The new thermostat will come with the sensor. Be sure and notice how and where the sensor goes in the wall. I hope this helps

SOURCE: ice is collectin on back of lower compartment

Do you have an ice maker? if so then it is probably the icemaker over flowing. It probably is the water valve sticking or the ice maker is not satisfied. I have both parts available and ships same day 877-293-1739

SOURCE: I installed a defrost control

Either of the two you mention will do. Make sure you correctly install the wiring.
But usually it should have started after you plug in the wall. Try it check the wiring and it will work now.
Good luck.

Kelvinator Cyclic 330, Model No: CS334A-R


Tonight, get a battery flash light, turn it on, put it in the fridge and close the fridge door. Then turn off all the lights in the room. If you can see any light escaping around the fridge door, the door seals aren't working properly, and need replacing.
This is the main reason why too much water is being condensed and causing your fridge drip tray to overflow.

Kelvinator Cyclic 330 not getting cold enough


Empty the refigerator and freezer, unplug it for about 8 hours, leave freezer door open so it will completely defrost. Plug it back in for 4 hours and close doors before you fill it back up with food. If you have a thermometer, check the interior temperatures before you fill it back up. Refigerator should be around 42 degrees F.

Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

Where abouts is the thermostat inside the fridge there are white and yellow wires that go to either side of the fridge and the yeallow ones are broken what are these wires for it is a kelvinator C375vm


It sounds like you have a cyclic defrost fridge,Kelvinators were originally fitted with heat assist thermostats,so in order for the fridge to come back on a yellow wire heater was run around the cooling evaporator in the fridge compartment start running again at approx +4C so when the element fused the fridge did not start again until approx +12C.So instead of replacing heater a different thermo was used that came back on at +4c deg regardless.Kind Regards.
