THREE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS FOR DEFROST TIMERS ON
MOST REFRIGERATORS.
1 BEHIND THE REFRIGERATOR IN THE COMPRESSOR COMPARTMENT.
2 BEHIND THE TOE PLATE LOCATED ON THE FRONT BOTTOM OF THE REFRIGERATOR.
3 IN THE FRESH FOOD SECTION WITH THE CONTROLS

ON SOME NEWER ELECTRONIC MODELS, THE DEFROST IS
PART OF THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL LOCATED BEHIND A PANEL ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT.

The above URL will take you to an exploded view of the controls. Look at number 23 which will be located behind toe plate below door on the left side. That is the defrost timer. Rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear a loud click. That is the defrost timer starting the defrost. If the unit restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place you problem is most likely the defrost thermostat.

SOURCE: WHERE IS THE DEFROST TIMER LOCATED ?

Hi

The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.
The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.
Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.
*Some defrost timers are a constant or continuous run timer, which means when ever the refrigerator is plugged in the defrost timer is powered up and running. Some defrost timers are an accumulative run timer, which means when the refrigerator is off the defrost timer is off and not running, when the refrigerator is running the defrost timer is running. This is also sometimes called a demand defrost. The power for the defrost timer goes through the cold control first on an accumulative defrost system. The timers are often the same but will be wired differently to get the different operations.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

My defrost heater is not working. Westinghouse


You did not mention if your unit was 120VAC or 220VAC parts replacement mandate you know exactly which it is your searching for as far as replacement part sources.
120VAC US parts source
220VAC UK parts source


Most often a Defrost problem is one of the following:

1. Defrost timer (there are 4 terminal timers MECHANICAL and Multi terminal ELECTRONIC timers) Any generic Defrost timer will work as long as you know the input voltage and the number of require terminals match.

2. The 60 Deg Thermostat

3. The actual heating element

Water/condensation in both dairy tray and bottom of fridge


My guess is you have a blocked defrost drain. The water instead of going down its drain goes down the backside of the frig and pools up under the crispers. Blow out the defrost drain. The only other thing to look for is bad door gaskets.

Top half fridge not cold freezer department fine


I had the same problem; the top fridge compartment was warming up to 14C while the freezer compartment was starting to defrost (frozen stuff was starting to become soft. I took the rear wall off the freezer compartment and found it all iced up. I defrosted it with a blower heater then powered it back up. It all worked fine for a month when the same thing happened. I figured that the defrost cycle wasn't working. I located the defrost timer on the rear right-side of the fridge. I rotated it several times and found that the fridge was turning on and off. I rotated it until the fridge turned off. I waited 5 minutes then stuck my head into the freezer compartment and felt the rear wall at the bottom where he drain is; it felt warm so I guessed the defrost heater element was ok. I ordered a defrost timer and installed it. I haven't had a problem since.
