Whirlpool ER2CHMXPL00 freezer is frosting up


Lets start by going inside your fresh food compartment and see if you can find a round hole most times covered by a plastic plug to hide opening. Remove plug and place a flathead screwdriver in opening and slowly turn the defrost timer clockwiseuntil you hear compressor and fans stop. This is called forcing manual defrost. After a few moments you should hear some sizzle or crackle noise coming from freezer compartment. That will be the defrost heater warming up the unmelted frost. Click Here=> ER2CHMXPL00 Liner Parts See item location 4? That is the defrost timer While the freezer has been set manually in defrost the defrost timer should be trying to come out of defrost itself after about 25 minutes. If it does not come out of defrost simply turn clockwise until the compressor restarts. If you need to do this replace the defrost timer.

If doing the above does not help you will need to manually defrost the freezer with a hair drier. Unplug refrigerator and remove the rear panel in back of your freezer. This is where you will see the defrost heater. Click Here=> ER2CHMXPL00 Unit Parts

On that same page instructions are in a video on how to test the defrost heater. At top of this solutionI mentione the Liner Parts item number 25 is the=> 4387503 Defrost Thermostat
Most likely the defrost timer is the part that is needing replaced. If not then the other two parts listed here are very possible reasons for the defrost failure.

My fridge isn't cooling. The freezer is working well, but the fridge keeps getting warmer while the freezer frosts over my food. How can I fix this?


You didn't mention the make. If the freezer is frosting up it may have a faulty defrost timer or defrost heater or something else in the defrost circuit.

RFA52 upright fridge freezer keeps frosting up.what is the 'normal' setting for the freezer 0 or 1?


Setting should be midrange. If the freezer is frosting on the back panel you have a defrost problem. The coils will be iced over and the unit will slow down on it's cooling. If there is frost you will need to deice the coils by removing the frezzer back wall panel and use a hair dryer to melt all of the ice. The problem causer of all this will be either the defrost timer, defrost t-stat or defrost heater. Good luck.

Fridge side not cooling. freezer works. 6 yr old side by side


There is a little fan that blows air from the freezer side to cool the fridge side. Pull the plug on the refridgerator for over night, long enough to give it time to defrost if there is any, then plug it back in and see ifthe fan is running. If not then it probably needs to be replaced. If it keeps frosting up and stopping the fan then the defrost timer is probably bad and will need to be replaced.

How do i locate the defrost timer on my refrigerator?


I'm having the same problem.I checked out my fridge and found the defrost heater bad. I replaced it and also replaced the defrost thermostat. It fixed it for about 4 days and then the problem reocurred. I strongly believe that one of the relays that are built into the circuit board are going bad or getting stuck. I just hate to replace the board and have the same problem again. But, i have already replaced all other components of the defrost system, so the circuit board can only be the problem. I'm going to give it a shot.

Traulsen freezer URS48DT


Turn cold control to Max. This keeps your compressor running for this troubleshooting exercise. Find and manually advance the defrost timer with a screwdriver or something similar. This will shut the compressor down and bring the defrost heater on. If this happens then you will know that your timer is bad.

If it is not that, the next thing to look at is the defrost heater itself or the thermal overload on your defrost heater. This keeps your defroster from overheating.
