sound like you have a defrost problem. The evaporator is behind the panel where the fan is. YOu will need to remove the panel, and test some of the defrosting components. Behind that panel are the heater and bi-metal. ( Bi-metal is also called defrost terminator ) the bi-metal looks like a little cylinder ( about the size of a stack of 8 quarters ) it should be attached to the freezing coils. With the refrigerator unplugged, make sure you have continuity through the bi-metal. This may involve cutting the wires to check, so leave enough wire to be able to splice back together if the bi-metal is good. ( The bi-metal must be ice cold before it will have continuity through it, as the heater heats up the coils it warms the bi-metal enough to loose continuity, therefore shutting the heater off ). Now with the bi-metal cold and no continuity through it, replace the bi-metal. If there is continuity, then check the heating element for continuity at both ends of its wires. If yu can check the ohm load on the heater it should read somewhere around 28ohms. If all these parts are good then it would have to be the defrost timer. If you had the model # I could go into further details on how to check the timer. Hope this helps
IF you have a bottom mount freezer then remove the Ice Maker and four panel screws. The air outlet at the top of the panel can be removed with flat blade screw driver. If you have a side by side there is four panel screws for the metal panel. Once you remove the panel in the Freezer and you will see the Evaporator Fan Motor. Once you can see the Fan Motor, just slide it out and remove motor and replace with new.
my refrigerator goes into auto defrost every 60hrs for 45 minutes or till the bi metal(defrost thermostat) says it had enough....recently i had ice built up on the coil because my defrost thermostat was stuck open...
ice builds up because the moisture that comes from opening the door or food condenses on the cold coil...tempurature of the coil is below 32 degrees which will ice up the condensed moisture...
Hi, It sounds like the selonoid that shifts the auger is not working. This part is located behind the panel that the bucket pushes against. The little wire arm on the bucket goes into this. Sometimes they just get froze up from the moister. If you remove the panel/section the selonoid is in, you can see if the part has went bad.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know If I can assist you further.
on your ice bucket there is probably a bent thin metal bar that extends to the back of your refrigerator. if you remove the bin you will see a white plastic square hanging just behind the metal rear panel. Hold your light switch(s) closed while looking at the plastic square ahnger then give your refrigerator a "reach around" and cycle the ice dispenser in both the crushed and the cube settings. in one of the settings the square should move. if it does not.... try putting a blow dryer in front of the small square opening for about 10 minutes on high heat and repeat the process. if it still dosent move order a auger solenoid. 888-995-9956 is our number for parts (mod/ser. numbers required.) the blow dryer will probably solve the problem.
