    I HAVE NO INTEREST IN HOW MECHANICAL DEFROST TIMERS WORK. WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS WHAT KEEPS AN ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED DEFROSTER FROM WORKING WHEN THE MOTHER BOARD AND THE HEATER IS GOOD.

    MY GE REFRIGERATOR MODEL #GHS25KGRBBB WILL NOT DEFROST. IT HAS A NEW MOTHER BOARD AND THE HEATER IS GOOD. IT IS ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED AND HAS NO MECHANICAL DEFROST TIMER. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THE THERMISTOR ON THE EVAPORATER BEING FAULTY COULD CAUSE THE PROBLEM. IF NOT THEN WHAT?

    I HOPE AND BELIEVE THE SOLUTION WILL TURN OUT TO BE CORRECT. THAT IS WHERE I WILL START.

Yes the thermister on evaporater can cause this problem ,actually evaporater coil becomes hot and cool.if the coil only remain become cool and only remain hot.then it will not defrost.and thermister controls the heat and cool functions in evaporater coil.if the thermister is faulty it will not give command to evaporater coil to get cool down or turn heat on the evaporater coil.so its possible that thermister can be faulty. thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

Refrigerator part of coil freezing up, what would be the problem?


2) Some refrigerators contain timers that control the self-defrosting heaters. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find the timer, depending on the model of your refrigerator. In most cases, side-by-side refrigerators that have temperature control knobs at the top of the fridge compartment often have the defrost timer located near the thermostat behind the control knobs. It looks like a small, round object with one flat end that has four electrical prongs. It is also often located in the control panel, behind the fridge or behind the foot kick panel at the base of the appliance. Use a flathead screwdriver to advance the timer until you hear a click. This should start the defrost heater. If it doesn't, the timer probably needs to be replaced. Continue to turn it clockwise and a second click will be heard, which turns off the defrost heater. If the timer isn't clicking, simply pull it out and "plug in" a new timer.refrigerators that don't have timers have control panels that control the self-defrosting unit instead. The control panel can sometimes be tested using the controls on the water dispenser or by removing the rear of the front panel to access the controls. A simple press of the button will run several diagnostics that will test your defrost timer, thermostat and heater. The specific instructions vary depending on the model of your Kenmore refrigerator. Consult your owner's manual to run the diagnostics if you have a control panel in your refrigerator.

Running to cold, after while evaporator coils are packed with ice even defrost timer ,termostat and heaters are new.


Hello, Most likely you have a bad defrost timer, If you have a mechanical defrost timer it will normally be located either in the control panel inside the fridge or behind the panel beneath the doors. To test this once you have found the timer advance it to the defrost cycle and the wait to see if the heater makes a spitting noise. If the defrost cycle fires up then the timer is bad and you should replace it. If you have a digital defrost timer it will be a circuit board located in a panel behind the refridgerator. locate the tech sheet behind the panel under the doors and force it into the defrost cycle...once again if the defrost cycle kicks in your going to have to replace the circuit board. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Mike

Freezer frosts up and will not defrost itself anymore. Do I need a new defrost timer and/or thermostat? If so, where is the timer/thermostat located in the refrigerator?


It could also have a bad defrost heater. The heater and defrost thermostat are located mounted on the evaporator coil and the timer is usually mounted in the control panel with the control thermostat or in the compressor compartment.

Model 596.73502203 Making intermittant buzzing sound. Moisture on inside of fridge and freezer. Food in freezer is thawing out.


I believe that your refrigerator may need a new 12002495 or 1184282 Adaptive Defrost Control You can find it inside the fresh food section and behind the controls for temperature. Not sure about the buzzing sound yet but the moisture and thawing of the frozen food points to a defrost problem. Need you to unplug and have a look at the adaptive defrost control. Would not hurt to open the back panel in the rear of freezer and defrost if needed and need someone to check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Sea Breeze

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.
