True T72F defrost timer and lights not working?


You have done good work here young man. There is a relay or switch that is keeping the signal for being processed. I had the same similar problem with mine. At least your compressor is ok. Are you sure timer is wired back right.

I have a Kenmore upright freezer model# 253.9260210. We noticed that our food was starting to thaw. I opened up the coil area and noticed a small piece of ice on the coils. I melted the ice and turned...


Feel top of the compressor and tell me how hot after it has been running awhile. I need also that you advance the defrost timer=>. 216517400 Defrost Timer

clockwise slowly untill the compressor stops or starts. I need to make sure the timer is not stuck into defrost. I want you to leave the compressor off for up to 35 minutes. If the freezer compressor doesn't restart bt then simply again turn the timer clockwise slowly until it does and then stop turning. The defrost timer is location 23 in this photo HERE If you need to turn the defrost timer like this to restart the compressor then replace the defrost timer and this will resolve the freezing problem. If not we move to the defrost heater location 14 in the sme photo=> 216254600 Defrost Heater

I have a True T 23f freezer that I know needs a new defrost timer. My problem is finding the right one. The only numbers I can see on the timer are 8141-00B and 345-00. I can also see it's marked 2hp...


That 8141-00B is a Paragon timer model number. If you get the identical one you can just mark the numbers down and be sure to wire in the new one the same way.

My f22cwf freezer keeps freezing up.


see if you can locate the defrost timer. then check it to see if it works. If it is a mechanical one, it will have a timer face on it that moves. make a mark on it and then check it in about 15 minutes to see if it has moved. If not, there is your problem.
Let me know if we need to go any farther. will be glad to dig alittle deeper.

Have a Westinghouse 'Silhouette' Frost Free 415


The reason your "freezing up in the freezer" is your unit is not automatically defrosting. That part you describe is your defrost control, or at least A defrost control. You said while cleaning the back, safe to assume you meant the outside back of the cabinet? Look for a square plug, either black or white, with the same 3-1plug as the defrost control. But, I doubt that is your current defrost control, maybe the original, but the unit cannot run without the defrost control plugged in. Now, your current defrost control maybe defunct, or your defrost heater element, or bi metal thermostat, the latter two are located in the freezer, one at the top, the other at the bottom of the evaporator coil. Test the continuity through both of these parts, the bi metal t stat at top of evaporator needs to be tested while it is cold. Disconnect one end of the heater element to test its continuity. If both of these test ok, replace your defrost control.

Food thawed, freezer running. I moved packages from in front of air ways and turned thermostat to coldest setting & it didn't change anything, freezer still at 32-33 degrees. help


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Freezer not defrosting between cycles


Check the defrost timer for operation if your unit has one. Some Delfield models have solid state controls. If your system has a timer for the defrost you can open the timer cover and turn the dial in the direction indicated by the arrow until a time peg comes up to the time of day marker. You will hear a loud click and the compressor will shut off. Defrost should take place. The inner dial of the timer will have some indication as to how long in minutes the defrost should take. If the pointer does not move while in the defrost position the timer motor is bad. Turn the dial again so the copper pointer goes past the time of day marker and the compressor should restart. Replace the timer.

Thermostat differential on a Bev air ef48-1as


Having to manually defrost an automatic defrost system tells me there is a problem with your defrost timer. Most Beverage-air freezers have a Paragon timer. There are two dials on these timers. An inner and outer dial. On the inner dial is an arrow to indicate the direction of rotation as counter clock wise. On the inner dial is a copper pointer indicating duration of the defrost cycle.

Observe the copper pointer, no movement indicates that the timer is bad.

Auto defrost not working on fridge freezer


Your defrost is on a timer and every so often it clicks and sends electricity to defrost heater and activates. It shuts everything else down. Manually advance the timer with small screwdriver to see if it activates. If not your timer is bad. Another way to tell is to put a mark on your timer and then come back later and see if it has moved.
