What is the complete model # on the sticker inside the freezer?

    This isn't a complete model #.  Make sure it is the one off of the sticker inside the cabinet and not the manual.  Looks like this is not a frost free model.  You can tell if it's not frost free if the frost builds up on the shelves.  The shelves are the evaporator coils.  If this is what you have then it doesn't have a timer.  A timer is used for automatic defrost and this one is manual defrost.

Fridge freezer stoping after 24 hrs


most of these freezers have an automatic defrost cycle.
after so many hours of chilling it will stop and run a de-icing cycle.
this is accomplished by one or two heating elements.
if one of the elements is burned out it will not run the defrost cycle.
and will ice up quickly.
depending on the model the heaters will usually cost about 15 to 20 dollars and they are easy to replace.
look up the model of your freezer and download the pdf files they will usually have a pictorial diagram showing the location
a defrost timer usually does nt fail on them unless it is physically damaged.

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...

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 WHIRLPOOL NO FROST REFRIGERATOR-FREEZER , IT IS NOT COOLING. I WANT TO LOCATE THE DEFROST TIMER PLEASE YOU HELP. THANKS .


Hello,

Depending on model it have a defrsot timer or perhaps a electronic defrost control but they usually will be located in the control panel if you have a knob used to set the tempature and if it has a digital display that you set the temp. by pushing the button on the front it will have a defrsot control and thats not so easy to put into defrost as the timer is.

Please reply with exact model number as found on the label in the fresh food compartment and i will tell you if you have a defrost timer or electronic control

Freezer doesnt freeze and red light at top came on


If freezer is icing up, 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

The freezer stopped freezing... the temp now reads 40deg (and climbing) and the fridge reads 45deg. I'm mopping up puddles on the floor.


It is possible the refrigerator has gone into defrost and stuck there. I'm not sure what features to tell you to look for but you probably have a defrost timer or something called Adaptive Defrost Control board. They are the part that most likely causes the problem. If you could send me the model number found on the door frame on most refrigerators I would help you locate the parts.. Anyway when they stop cooling like that it reminds me of a defrost timer caught in the defrost cycle and the only way to locate it and turn it clockwise may get you going until the defrost timer can be replaced. I have seen thermostats do the same thing. Thanks Sea Breeze

Things is melting


First is it just a freezer or refrigerator and freezer? About the best way to find out what type of defrost system it has is by going by the model number. Some have a simple defrost timer located most times inside the fresh food compartment and less likely behind the kick plate at bottom front of the refrigerator. Some of the newer models have and Adaptive Defrost Control Located inside the control Panel and inside the fresh food compartment. Most times it is most likely the defrost timer or ADC that is defective that causes the problem. Next will be the defrost heater and defrost thermostat located inside the freezer and behind the rear panel of the freezer. Before doing any of this on your own I recommend that you unplug the refrigerator before removing any covers or touching anything powered up. There we will need to check the defrost element and defrost thermostat for continuity. I will help you find and solve the problem if you need and if you can locate the model number that would tell us what to look for better, Please let me know if you need more assistance or if this has been helpful, Thank You Sea Breeze

Kenmoore upright freezer cold but not freezing


Hi!

Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check that there is air flow in the upper vent baffle in the fridge section which is located behind the crispers. If there is no air flow at the vent baffle in the upper fridge section then this is the cause of the issue you’re facing with. The evaporator fan pushes the air through ducting into the refrigerator from the freezer and if there is any material obstructing it then clear it.

If still the problem persists then you need to check the following things:

The defrost circuit contains defrost timer, defrost heater(s) and defrost thermostat. Defrost timer failure will not put power to the circuit. Defrost heater failure will fail to defrost when the timer applies power. Defrost thermostat must be closed for defrost to take place. First locate the timer, rotate the clutch head screw clockwise slowly until one distinct click is heard. Now the timer will be set in defrost mode and defrost should complete within 30 minutes or less after which the refrigeration should start cooling again. If defrost takes place and it does not go back to cooling automatically turn the screw once again until you hear the second click, unit will start. Replace the timer. If defrost does not take place in the time frame above and the unit restarts in cooling test the defrost heaters. From the heater(s) follow the wires from each end to where they plug into the circuit. Unplug them and test through the heaters with an ohm meter. You should get a reading if they are good, if no reading then you need to replace the heater(s). If you get a reading on the heater(s) then you need to replace the defrost thermostat.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Freezer has frost in back- frig not coolling


You have a defrost parts issue.
Unplug the fridge. Remove the back freezer panel and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat.
Without a model number I can not tell you where the defrost timer is.
