I just fixed my fridge because someone though it would be funny to defrost...... . Hotpoint slimline 8232.

Turn off at the wall and reset the temp dial to 0 (button still doesnt come back up) then push past 0 anticlockwise to 9. turn power on and reset temp dial to desiired level repeat if this doesnt work. compressor should turn on so that u know it is fixed

You need to have a defrost or the freezer will not work unplugging the time clock then the compressor will not work. Tom

Glrs237zdw temp goes from 29 to 60


I am not sure if you said you checked the=> 5303918476 Defrost Control Board or here=> 5303918476 If you replaced the defrost thermostat inside the freezer that is most likely not the problem. These defrost control boards will really cause strange things to happen. Sometimes by unplugging and taking out the control board you will see burn marks or signs of heat damage on the printed circuit, not always. Unplug and open the control panel inside the fresh food compartment=> GLRS237ZW2 Control Panel

You will see part/location number 23 is your 5303918476 Defrost Control Board If I misunderstand please let me know so I can help you resolve this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

FRS6HR5HSB6 model frigidaire side by side fan making noise. Ice is building up around fan. What is causing ice buildup


the defrost circuit has a problem, allowing the frost/ice buildup..
remove the shelves, and back lower cover in the rear of the freezer to expose the evaporator coil, defrost heater, and defrost thermostat.
the defost heater should have continuity through it and the defrost thermostat will have continuity when frozen but test open when warmed.. if either bad replace.
if both test good look for bad connections in the freezer compartment wiring, and moly connectors otherwise the temperature controls are bad and it is an electronic assembly that incorporates the temperature controls with the deforst timer controls..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

The freezer does not get as cold as it should especially in the top compartment where the fan is. It will not freeze icecream and bread they do not freeze at all. However everything else seems to be fine...


Could be that the automatic defrost feature is not operating properly. You can go here if you want to find out how you might be able to fix it yourself, but you'll need to be comfortable with diagnostic testing and taking your frig apart. Otherwise, it's very repairable...contact a reputable repair company to come check it out.

Freezer not defrosting


You got the right idea. your fridge have a deforst problem, and it can be cause by a number of items. 1. the timer, 2 the defrost temperature control. 3 the defrost element itself.
Before you use the hair dryer when there is ice forming in the back panel, try to turn the timer and see wheather you can set it to defrost cycle manually if you can then the timer need to be change. the 2 and 3 item is a bit more work for normal people to deal with, you better call in a serviceman and watch him how he handle it so you can try it yourself next time. God Bless

I have a 7 year old Kenmore Upright Refrigerator/Freezer on top. I am losing the temp in the fridge part only. The back up the freezer gets a thick layer of ice buildup and when i remove the back panel the...


After you taken the back panel off and see a lot of ice forming on the coil before you use your hairdryer you should locate the timer and turn the center of the timer manually into defrost cycle. If you can see or hear the ice melting then your problem is the timer defective. Change the timer and that is all. But if it doesn't do anything then you will need a little bit more on electrical knowledge to deal with the rest on defrost temperature control and the element itself. Hope this help, God Bless.

The compressor works for a few seconds but then stops. The freezer is over temperature.


Check the condenser fan motor (next to compressor) make sure it is running. Next change relay (inside black box) on compressor.
