    That is the model # inside the fridge. We bought it in 2002 or 2003. I have researched a little more and I think it has adapt defrost board??? We are changing the defrost thermostat right now but I read that the timer should be changed also. I am trying to not go through this again for a while! Luckily we have a second fridge in the laundry room to move all the food to! !

    Ok, If the bi-metal switch you are changing tested bad, you really don't need to change the board. The timer board is located inside the control board in the fresh food section.

SOURCE: How to check defrost timer on Kenmore side by side

You don't have a defrost timer, you have an adaptive defrost control which determines when to defrost based on how often door is opened etc. If you have a defrost problem check , defrost heater, defrost thermostat

If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Defrost timer


The defrost timer is part of the electronic control baord located on the back of the refrigerator. If the freezer is not defrosting check the thermistor on the evaporator(freezer) coils. It can cause the control board to thing it doesn'y need defrosting. a common problem

Kenmore fridge leaks water on floor and then stops cooling. Tech said it needed heater/defroster and would cost $500. Does this sound right.


Ah no. If the fridge was not defrosting then water would not be leaking out.
It sounds like the defrost timer is not completing it's cycle. You may need a new defrost timer.
The cost of a new timer, call out, fitting and testing could be around $375

Replacing defrost timer,needs manuel


I check there is no free manual for Kenmore, I find. Better follow these steps to replace defrost timer.

Unplug the refrigerator. Locate the defrost timer. The timershould have four metal terminals coming from the bottom of the unit. It isusually situated behind the refrigerator, in the refrigerator's control panel,the freezer compartment toward the front of the cabinet or behind a metal kickplate on the bottom of the refrigerator. Older Kenmore models may have it builtinto the ice maker. Remove the defrost timer by takingoff the kick plate (if there is one) and removing any screws attaching it tothe refrigerator or freezer. Carefully pull the timer out from the wall of theunit so you can disconnect the wiring from the connectors. If removal isdifficult, try wiggling the connectors back and forth to help loosen them andpull on them firmly. Plug the wire connectors into thenew defrost timer and replace the timer in the refrigerator. Secure with screws, replace coverand plug in refrigerator.
Thanks and helpful?

Refrigerator will not defrost


Remove the kick plate grill at base of refrigerator and turn the timer clockwise slow until compressor stops. That should be beginning of the defrost cycle. After a few minutes look inside freezer or listen for crackling or hissing noise. That should indicate defrost. After 25 minutes if it does not restart then turn again until it restarts. Replace defrost timer. Let me know what happens, Thanks Sea Breeze

Kenmore won't cool down.


I you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
