NOTE: All wiring must be in accordance with the National Electrical Code, latest edition, and all local electrical codes. 1. Disconnect electrical power from both indoor and outdoor units. 2. Remove control panel access cover. 3. Disconnect thermostat wires at low voltage control box. 4. Remove the unit’s eight thermostat connection wires from the low voltage control box. Remove and retain grommets as necessary. 5. Remove and retain three screws that secure the existing control to the control box. 6. Using the original screws, attach the new control to the control box. In most models, the control box will have three holes that can be used to mount the control. The lower left mounting hole for the old control will also be used as the lower left mounting hole for the new control. If necessary, drill 7/64” holes to provide at least three mounting screws for the control board. The control should be oriented so the TEST pins are at the top and the low voltage connections are on the left. 7. Connect the wire harness to the new control terminals as 8. Remove the yellow, black, and gray wires from the contactor coil terminals. 9. Connect the black wire of the new control harness to one of the contactor coil terminals. This black wire is one of the two wires connected to the “C” terminal of the new control. 10. Connect the yellow and gray wires of the new control harness to the other contactor coil terminal. 11. Route the gray wire from the contactor coil terminal to the low voltage control box. 12. Route the stripped ends of the thermostat connection wires of the new control harness to the low voltage control box. 13. Insert the gray wire and the stripped thermostat connection wires into the low voltage control box using the original grommets. 14. Move the component wires from the old control to the new control as shown in the following table. 15. Neatly bundle and secure the wires using a tie wrap. 16. Set the proper demand defrost “curve” using the shunt jumper in the upper left corner of the control. See Figure 1. The position of the jumper must correspond with the control being replaced. Table 2 shows the proper jumper pin positions for the various controls that might be replaced. 17. Install new wiring diagram. 18. Connect thermostat wires using field-supplied wire nuts. 19. Install control panel access cover. 20. Reconnect power to units. 21. Verify proper operation of unit.

A vapor compression air conditioning system including defrost control valve means between the compressor outlet and the evaporator in bypass relationship to the condenser and expansion valve for supplying hot refrigerant directly to the evaporator for defrosting in response to a predetermined low temperature of refrigerant in the evaporator which corresponds to frost accumulation. The control valve includes a piston reciprocal in a housing and having one end of the piston exposed to the compressor outlet pressure and the second end exposed to a refrigerant pressure within a variable volume control chamber between the piston and the housing. A small diameter bleed port extending through the piston equalizes the pressure forces acting on the ends of the piston to normally maintain the piston in a closed position. When a bimetal spring in an adjacent enclosure senses a low refrigerant temperature which corresponds to frost accumulation on the evaporator, a passage between the control chamber and the enclosure is opened for rapidly reducing pressure in the control chamber and causing the piston to move to its open position in which hot refrigerant is directed to the evaporator.
---------------------------------
An air conditioning system comprising: an evaporator for cooling air in a passenger compartment; a compressor for pressurizing refrigerant discharged from said evaporator; a condenser for cooling refrigerant discharged from said compressor; valve means for expanding refrigerant discharged from said condenser to a low pressure condition prior to its introduction into said evaporator; a defrost control valve assembly fluidly connected between said compressor and said evaporator and opened in response to a predetermined evaporator refrigerant temperature to direct hot refrigerant from said compressor directly into said evaporator for defrosting; said defrost control valve including a housing with a cylinder and a piston valve within said cylinder reciprocal between closed and open positions; one end of said piston valve being exposed to refrigerant pressure from said compressor outlet which exerts an opening force upon said piston valve; the other end of said piston valve forming a variable volume control chamber with said housing; said piston having a small diameter bleed port extending between said ends to said control chamber to transmit refrigerant pressure from the compressor outlet to said control chamber thus equalizing the pressure forces acting on the ends of the piston which normally maintains said piston in its closed position; said housing forming an enclosure connected to said control chamber by a passage and having an inlet and an outlet fluidly connected respectively to said evaporator and the inlet of said compressor; valve means for blocking said passage when in a closed position; bimetal spring means within said enclosure and connected to said valve member for moving said valve member into an open position in response to a predetermined evaporator refrigerant temperature corresponding to frost accumulation on said evaporator whereby said open passage decreases refrigerant pressure in said control chamber to permit a pressure force on said first end of said piston to move it into an open position permitting hot refrigerant to pass directly to said evaporator for defrosting.
keep updated.thanks.

Here are two links to the Lennox service bulletins.This should be a fairly straight forward replacement,this is a Lennox upgrade,all connections on the old unit should be marked on the board and correspond with the new unit.Dissconnect the power to the unit,write down all connections to the old board and the color of the wires before dissconnecting them,and then connect to the corresponding connections of the new board of new board,note that all the connections on the new board are named the same,be sure not to mix the incoming power leads.

Fridge is no longer cool, it's warm even on the coldest setting and everything in the freezer has thawed out with same setting. fridge is 11 years old. repair or replace?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

I note this question is not over 3 hours old so this is probably a 2nd opinion.

Actually it depends on the condition of the compressor. From the symptom that I am reading the compressor is not running at all. This can be caused by a defective defrost control or defrost thermostat. It can also be caused by something as simple as a PTC relay / KliXon thermal overload on the compressor or the run capacitor for the compressor. I would at least have it evaluated by a technician before making the decision to replace it. However... if the internal material condition of the compartments and shelving is severly degraded you may want to think twice about investing roughly $150.00 in a service call and parts to get it going again if it has mechanical defrost circuit controls. The real key is for you to find out if the compressor rotor is LOCKED or not. If the compressor is not locked or GROUNDED it is probably worth the repair cost. If they tell you that you need a new compressor the parts alone will run $235.00 + freon + labor + service call. It adds up fast.

Since you did not include the model number I do not know if you have the mechanical or electronic defrost control The mechanical one is around $35.00 and the electronic one is around $85.00. If you have a unit that has all the bells and whistles the control board can run $185.00 That is why I needed a model number. Given the unit is 11 years old I am assuming it has a mechanical defrost control.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

On a Jenn Air Model JCD2289AES refrigerator, how do I replace the defrost timer - I have the new timer


According to your model number you don't have a defrost timer you have an adaptive defrost control which monitors the freezer and fridge and determines when it's time to defrost. It's part 13 on this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=JCD2289AES&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1266&brandDescription=JENN-AIR&modelName=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00007&componentDescription=CONTROLS&documentId=M0406285&blt=06

If the defrost thermostat and heater are good then replace the control if you are have defrost problems.

Fridge is 14 yrs old but in good condition. Several new timers have been installed and the defrost term. unit checks out ok, but the timers will not operate consistently. Model #970-450020.


I would say the new defrost timers are just made too cheaply. The old ones would seem to run for years on end. Maybe whoever installed the timers are just buying the "generic" cheapos?

I have an 8 year old side by side refrigerator that is not cooling right. We turned the temp to make it colder and its still not cold like it should be. Also, I'm noticing condensation in my drawers and...


Turn your refrigerator off and remove the back wall inside your freezer section. Use a hair dryer to melt off all the frost and ice. The frost was blocking the flow of air over those cooling coils, resulting in very little cooling. The most likely cause of this condition is burnt out defrost heater(s). It can also be caused by a bad defrost thermostat, air leakage like a door left open a long time or bad gaskets, or a bad defrost control.

GE side by side refrigerator TFX22ZRA control board


The adaptive defrost on your model is controled by the motherboard, but I don't think that is your problem. If the freezer is too cold and the fresh foods is too warm, check the air dampener. It is a small duct door in the very back top left of the fresh foods section.

Replaced defrost heater


If this is an old mechanically controled defrost timer style refrigerator, the defrost control may still be in the defrost mode. It should advance to run within an hour. If it does not, your defrost control timer may be bad. If you posted your model number, I could advise you on where the defrost control is located, what the part numer is, and how to manually advance it to the run position.

KF48 Beverage Air Freezer permently stuck on "defrost."


Unplug the fridge overnight and defrost it completely. Ensure the thermostat is properly set.

If it does not restart normal function after you plug back, then there may be a fault concerning the digital control, in that case call the number listed on the owner manual.
