You don't need a magnet. You verify that the defrost timer is running if not replace it then you verify that the heating element is working or that the thermal cutoff is working if not replace those. No manual or schematic required.

SOURCE: My MW refrigerator, model HMG-19854,

Hi Edmund,
I think what you are experiencing is that the compressor will not start every once in a while. The compressor has developed what I call a "flat spot". If it happens to stop at a particular spot in the rotation it will not start to spin again. However after it get "bumped" a number of times...ie. the overload kicks in and out trying to start it. the motor then moves just enough each time so that after awhile it will run again till it stops at this spot again.
The motor you hear running is the fan inside but I think on further examination you will find that the compressor is not actually running when it is not cooling.

I hope that I have not confised you with theis explaination. It is a bit hard to communicate effective in this way.

Bottom line is that at some point the compressor motor just will cease to work and you will have to replace it.

I have a kitchen aid two sided refrigerator model #KSRB27FHSS04.The freezer part always iecing up, change the thermostat about 3 weeks ago. The fridge part still is not cooling like it should.


Yes I see the panel is covered in frost indicating a failed defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If you changed the timer then you have two more components that need to be replaced=> The 2188175 Defrost Heater Assembly and the=> 2196155 or W10225581 Defrost Thermostat Here is a KSRB27FHSS04 pats manual for your model and the parts are located behind the panel in your photo. Parts are listed on page 17 of the parts manual. You will need to defrost freezer before you will be able to see or replace these parts. Unplug and remove that rear panel and use a hair dryer to melt the ice blocking airflow on the evaporator. Please send another photo of the ice once you get rear cover off in back of the freezer

How do you clean the condenser in Frigidaire side by side model FRS26R4AW5?


You first need to see if there is frost building up on the rear panel inside your freezer. This may be a defrost issue so I need you to at the least have a look to see if any frost is building like in this=> PHOTO You may also need to remove the rear panel of your freezer to expose the frost buildup as seen in this=> PHOTO
If you find frost building like the examples I listed the problem will be the Adaptive Defrost Control listed as part location 23 in the photo=> HERE
The adaptive defrost control board can be found here=> FRS26R4AW5 Defrost Control Board

The defrost heater is part location 14 and the defrost thermostat is listed as part location 21 found in the exploded view of the evaporator section=> HERE The next most likely parts to fail are the=> 5303918255 Defrost Heater Assembly

and the=> 5303918214 Defrost Thermostat
12_5_2012_7_24_09_am.jpg
How to test these parts can be found in the tutorial found on the same pages. Below is a link to=> HVAC Refrigerator Coil Cleaning
I will be here should you have questions, Thanks

Fridge is cold, freezer is not


Please look into the freezer for frost build-up on the rear wall. If you are having a defrost problem it may limit the freezer temperature and still be cold enough for the fresh food section to remain at safe temperatures but not for long before freezer and fresh food section warms because frost blocks airflow and the evaporator is unable to keep everything cold because of frost build-up. I don't have your model number so I will list the parts that may need to be replaced. The defrost control=> 12002754 Frost Kit, defrost thermostat and 67002493 Defrost Heater Assembly

8_23_2012_11_24_51_am.jpg

For testing of the defrost thermosat and defrost heater refer to the same page as the parts, If these parts are good the the 12002754 Frost Kit, could be defective. The 12002754 Frost Kit,
can be found in the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. Let me know if you have questions and also if you are not having a defrost problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer won't stay shut


If you want a part number for the replacement door gasket please provide a complete model number here so I can give that to you or you can look it up yourself at www.searsdirect.com You must have your model number. (sample 110.XXXXX etc)

The magnet is inside the door seal itself. If the seal is damaged replacement is your only option.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Need to replace door seal on Dometic NDR 1292 model that is 10 yrs. old. Freezer is nothing but frost! How would I know how to get one? Thank you. Kirk


Many of the on-line appliance parts stores have manuals. Simply search for your model refrigerator, and they will show you exploded views of your refrigerator. You can pick the part you need and order it.

Just because the freezer is full of frost doesn't mean the door seal is bad. More likely, you have a problem with the defrost circuit. If you defrost the freezer, and it freezes up again within a short time, then the problem is in your defrost circuit. Those same on-line appliance parts stores can provide you with those parts as well.

Freezer/refrigerator compressor running constantly


th ebi-metal is a thermostat which shuts the defrost heater on/off, but doesnt actually put the unit into defrost. if it were bad the defrost heater would never go on resulting in massive build up of ice on back wall of freezer, and noticable refrigeration sect. cooling.. dont know how you know the compressor never shuts down, but if that the case perhaps you have a sealed system/ freon issue. try removing the back panel of freezer section and check the evaporator coil. you shuld have an even frost pattern over the entire evap coil. if theres just frost over the top 1or 2 coils, and the rest of coil is shiny aluminum , thats an indication of a sealed system issue.( 5 year part warr by manufacture) def not a do it yourself issue...but that would,, depending on extent of restriction/loss of freon,, cause freezer to freeze and defrost eratically,and the compressor would be running constantly trying to achieve a good stable temp
