SOURCE: Defrost timer

The above URL will take you to an exploded view of the controls. Look at number 23 which will be located behind toe plate below door on the left side. That is the defrost timer. Rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear a loud click. That is the defrost timer starting the defrost. If the unit restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place you problem is most likely the defrost thermostat.

Defrost ge regrigerator

The most common problem with the defrost system is a burned out defrost heater. It is located behind the frz back wall usually attached at the bottom of the aluminum cooling coils which will probably be full of ice and frost buildup. You will need to melt all the ice off the coils with something like a hair dryer. The heater is inside a glass tube and can be tested with a multimeter or sometimes you can see the break in it through the glass. In some cases there are 2 or 3 heaters at different levels. Replacement kits should include as many as needed for your model. Replace them all. 2 other parts to the defrost system are the defrost timer (usually located on the front channel under the freezer door) or the termination thermostat which is a silver disk clipped to the top of the aluminum cooling coils with 2 wires going to it. Any of those 3 parts could cause the frost buildup but the heater is the most common.

We have a GE TFX25JR Fridg, After opening up the back cover, there is never in defrosted water in the pans. Is it normal for the fan in freezer compartment to run always except when unit turns its self...

The freezer fan will run as long as the unit is running. Some newer model will run the fan at a low speed unless it needs a quick chill mode such as leaving the door open too long, but for the most part the freezer fan is only shut off by the thermostat and defrost timer.

Defrost timer location on a kenmore refridgerator model 10645492400

I don't think your model number is correct in most cases your defrost timer or adaptive defrost board is located wherever your temperature controls are.

I can't find the wiring diagram for my whirlpool refridgerator.... MOD.#ET19RKXFN01 SER.#EG3222178. Can you please help. I need to change the defrost timer.....Thanks

I will try to locate a wiring diagram for your model ET19RKXFN01 but to change the defrost timer you will only need to know its location. Here is a link to the repair parts=> ET19RKXFN01_Repair_Parts_List
Go to page 5 of the repair parts list and you will see item number 4 Then on page 6 of the parts list you will see the timer part number beside the item 4. That is your defrost timer part number 2193084 Defrost Timer

Your refrigerator is an older model and may have the wiring digram in a packet behind the kick plate in the front near floor. Changing the defrost timer will not require use of a wiring diagram. Simply remove the old timer and replace the new defrost timer by plugging it into the wiring harness. The defrost timer can be found behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment where the controls are located above the top shelf. If you have questions just let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Where is the defrost timer in a GE GSS22JET

Defrost timer should be located at the back of the fridge at the bottom around the compresser, it is usually a little black box. Is the evaperator in the freezer iced up? If it is not, I would check the thermostat for proper operation or the compresser. If the compresser is very hot and not running, your compresser is on its way out, but if it is running and there is a hot line and cold line coming off of the compresser then I would say you have a plugged cap tube ( the metering device that gos into the evaperator in the freezer). In which case a repair man needs to cut about six inches off of it and re fill the refrigerant.

Have a GE TFX25JR/TFT25JR refrigeratorfreezer fan runs forever

Look inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel and there should be a defrost timer. Part number WR9X489 and that is the only reason that I can think of that would keep the fan running all the time. What I think is the contacts that normally open to let the freezer defrost are fused or welded themselves together. If compressor cycles and temperatures are OK (safe) that leads me to that needing replaced. I will look for the wiring diagram for your model but have found it hard to really get those answers from GE. But most timers are universal as long as the time of defrost and hours between are correct, Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer works fine but refridgerator doesn't

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

Defrost timer

most newer refers have the timer located somewhere near the main controls. Usually in the console near the refrigerator thermostat. older models could be behind the kick plate on the bottom or even on some in the back near the compressor. If it's a new electronic model it may not have a timer.
