Re: refridgerator problem

Maybe the heater was ok all along. There are two micro-temps in line with the heater which go open circuit under excessive heat conditions. These are located at each end of the connections to the heater element. Check these to see wether they are still closed. They cannot be reset and have to be replaced if faulty/open circuit. There is also a defrost thermostat/terminator in the heater cavity which should be closed under cold conditions. Best time to check this thermostat is when the evaporator is full of ice.

Refridgerator not cooling

If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. If there is no ice formation we have a big issue as the compressor and gas must be checked out. If compressor is running check the pressure, get help to test gas pressure. If not you will need to fill up ,If gas pressure is good the possibility of the compressor being inefficient is high. In such a case you must take consensus to estimate and decide, if RPM of motor is low check capacitor.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off. If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.

The ventilation fan that circulates the COLD air from the evaporator coils could get clogged with frost and so could be jammed. Also the wires to the fan can be worn out due to the frost. If so check if the defrost timer works to switch the heater to remove the frost. Also the check if the compressor is shut down by the timer /thermostat . If the heaters are not working, check continuity of the heaters.
So attempt to test using a multi-meter / clamp tester from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

My admiral refridgerator ia aproximately 20 years old.It makes a popping noise almost daily,usually at night.What is this ?

The popping noise is water evaporating or dripping on the defrost coil its a heating element that defrosts the freezer section with a heat coil like in your oven on a smaller scale.

F-08 error message on Hotpoint Washing machine WT761? The original fault on the machine was that it was tripping out and taking out a resetable fuse in my fuse box a few seconds after turning the machine...

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

How do I remove the heater element.

Unscrew the center nut completely, lever the metal plate as far forward as you can, pull out the thermistor (thermostat) out of the grommet, then get a screwdriver or similar and lever the rubber seal out, be careful not to split it, or you will have to fit a new heater,
Coat the seal with lubricant before trying to refit the element back into the new tub, it is difficult to get back in.
Normally I would fit a new element complete with new seal.
Plz rate my solution.

Change heater element on a Hotpoint Ultima WMA66P

I am assuming you have accessed the element, in the centre of the element is a fixing nut, remove this altogether, and lever element out with a broad blade screwdriver or similar.
Pull the thermistor out of the element, and transfer to new element.
Also transfer stainless steel fixing bracket to new element if there is one fitted. Refit new element
Plz rate my solution.
