What causes ice build up on inside freezer coils


To check the defrost circuit , unplug the refrig and inside the refrig section at the top
about 2" in from each side in the back , there are "D" slots to put a finger in , and pull
downward and foreword , to remove the control panel cover . Once removed , there is a 1/4"
screw on each side holding the adjustment indicator panel on , 1 phillips screw behind both
light bulbs , and 1 screw holding the complete panel to the rear wall . After removing these
5 screws , at the top right corner , with about 6-8 wires going to it , is the adaptive
defrost board ( adc ) . Sometimes you can see the electronic board and on newer refrig's , a
white
box will be seen . Inside this box , is the adaptive defrost control . Disconnect the plug
going to the board and on the right side of the PLUG , the far right wire is yellow , then
another color , then white . Using a small insulated wire with both ends stripped , insert
one end into the yellow wire hole and the other into the white wire hole . This will send
power directly thru the defrost bi-metal ( thermostat ) AND
heater to check if they are good .Plug the refrig back in . Now , if you have a clamp on amp
meter , clamp around the jumper wire while pushing in the light switch ( to turn off the
light to get only defrost amps ) which should be 3.5 or above indicating bi metal and heater
are good and adc is bad , OR , wait about 3-5 min and
look for a red glow at the bottom of the inside freezer panel , which will be the defrost
heater or listen for sizzling which will be the frost melting and dripping onto the heater
.If NO red glow , watch for a spark while removing the jumper wire you installed , from the
plug . If a spark IS seen , then the heater was on and the heater AND bi-metal are good . If
you see the red glow , hear the sizzling , or see the spark , then the adaptive defrost
board should be replaced . If no glow , sizzling or spark , then unplug the refrig and
reinstall the refrig control section .
Remove the food in the freezer section enough so that the 2 screws holding the lower freezer
panel on and the freezer panel , can be removed . Remove the panel . If the heater (black
element at the bottom of the coils ) wires are visible , trace them to the top of the coils
and disconnect . Use an ohm meter to determine if the element is good ( should show
continuity ) . If the element IS
good , at the top of the coils , is a 1" cylinder with 2 wires , clipped onto the coils .
This is the defrost thermostat ( bi-metal ) . Replace this part if the element shows good .
If the element shows bad , replace the element . NOTE 1 : sometimes the element and the
bi-metal come wired together and the replacement part comes with a new heater and bi-metal
already wired together . This would be the advisable replacement part . However , each part
can still be replaced individually . NOTE 2 : If looking at the bi-metal and the top plastic
" cap " looks cockeyed , replace the bi-metal as moisture has gotten inside and disturbed
its
designed function

Light bulb does not work


go to this site Parts & Accessories | Shop & Find Lawn & Garden, Appliance Parts at Sears PartsDirect | SearsPartsDirect.com put your model number in and you can look up your fridge,if you changed the bulb and it didn't work you could have a bad socket that the bulb goes into or a bad door switch,try pushing the door switch in and out to see if it will work or try unscrewing the bulb you might of not put it in staight or check the socket with a meter to make sure you have power there,go to that site you can look up the door switch and the socket if you need to order them,good luck

Changed light bulb still not working. Top bulb refrig side


There is a switch for the door that is depressed when the door closes. If the switch has failed the light will not work at all. You can unplug the unit and gently pop the switch out usually with a knife blade by depressing the plastic release tab (If you can find them) and then pull it out. Remove the two wires from the switch and mate them as best you can so they make contact and will not ground to anything. Plug in the unit and see if the light works. If the light comes on the switch is bad. Unplug the unit and reinstall the slight switch.

If you still don't have a light there is a possibility of the light socket being defective or a wiring problem in the chassis.

Light and temperature indicator on refregirator do no operate. Wife heard a pop when she opened refrig. door.


If the refrig light AND the temp adjustment knob lights , went out , you need to replace the electronic board . Pt # W10135090 . This part is located behind the refrig , at the bottom left , with 2 screws , inside a white box . The board runs about $ 80.00 , and is easily replaceable .

Sadly i would say the board is malfunctioning and needs replacement. There is nothing in the fridge/ freezer that if malfunctions can cause that.

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

Refrig shut off and will not restart - light bulbs still working


this refrigerator sounds like a 'frost free' type, and as such can, usually, only be repaired by the manufacturer. local refrigeration engineers cannot get the parts. your fault sounds like a PCB (printed circuit board) has gone, which only the manufacturers have in stock.
