SOURCE: Defrost Heater Resistance Range

21.3 ohms is just fine for a defrost heater. this heater is low wattage since it is an adaptive defrost. you could have problem with temperature sensor since you have replaced the board already.

tnx for using fixya,

SOURCE: whirlpool Model # GB2SHTXTS00 refrigerator not cooling.

Sounds like the defrost timer is not tracking the time properly. The unit needs to defrost once every 6-8 hrs. in order to work. Make sure the inside (evaporator) fan is running ok. If it rund for a few days and then warms up in the refrigerator section (coil iced), then the defrost timer is the culprit.

SOURCE: The freezer side does not freeze on the top shelf.

Behind the back wall of the freezer about halfway down, probably behind the light bulb (if there is one there) there is a fan. My guess is that the fan isn't working, or is slow. To test, open the freezer door, then hold the door switch closed and listen for the fan.

This fan should be blowing air up the back of the freezer, and send some of the cold air through a vent at the top of the freezer into the fridge. The air then descends through the fridge and reenters the freezer through a vent at the bottom. If the fan is broken, or if the upper vent is somehow blocked or broken, the cold air will enter (rather than exit) the fridge side at the bottom vent. Because cold air tends to descend and warm air rises, the cold air will freeze the stuff at the bottom of the fridge, and the thermostat (at the top of the fridge) will say it is warm.

I noticed that you left the most likely part out. Defrost Timer=> 215846602 Click Here=> FRT17B3AW5 User Manual on page 17 letter E Click Here=> FRT17B3AW5 Wiring Diagram some models had Adaptive Defrost there but I think yours has the defrost timer. If this was helpful please rate me.

Noisy when compressor starts


MAY BE LOW ON FREON OR;
THE COMPRESSOR:
If you hear a clicking sound coming from the back of your refrigerator/freezer, then the problem is most likely the compressor, relay and or capacitor is overheating or not getting proper power and will not start.The compressor is the component on your refrigerator that allows your refrigerator to cool. If this component is not working properly your refrigerator will stop cooling. Most of the time the compressor is not the component that has failed.

To check ur compressor with multi meter:
Disconnect and remove the relay and capacitor from compressor, somes located next to compressor in a casing.

You wills see 3 prongs coming out of compressor. 1 goes to ur srtart winding, 1 goes to ur run winding and the center goes to ur ground.

Place ur meter connector or prong on the start prong and the other on the ground (center prong) take note of the reading in OHMS for example 5 ohms.
Next place meter prong on run prong and the center ground prong agin. Take note of the reading in OHMS. Example 4 ohms

Next place meter prong on the start prong and the other on the run prong, now take note of the reading example 9 ohms. Now match the total of this ohms test with the total of ur two separate test. 9 ohms, if they match ur ok give or take 5 percent plus or minus. One more test to make to test of there is a short in compressor attach meter prong to ground prong and rub the other end of meter prong to metal ( scrape the metal clean of paint and test on metal surface not painted surface. If it shows continuity or ohms , u have a short in ur compressor. It should show infinity

Not freezing wont get down to temparature, stuff has defrosted, makes whooshing noise when dooor opended and light flashes. Its googsed Whirlpool ARC4030UK


Hi.

If there is whooshing noise, check first the damper fan. See if the fan is broken or if fan duct is obstructed. Check the fan in the evaporator system (defrost system) behind the fridge's firewall.

The problem is commonly the defrost system. Fan or thermostat do not work. As result the coils freeze up. With coils frozen the condenser will go under stress and will loose efficiency. The effect is the system not producing enough cold.

The defrost system comprises defrost thermostat, heater, defrost control and fan. The parts that fail more commonly are thermostat and heater. Both parts are located behind freezer firewall and tested reading impedance with a multimeter. Element and thermostat are faulty if they return Ohms infinity (the circuit is open) when reading impedance with a multimeter at the part's contact.

If thermostat and element are OK, the next part to be tested is the fan. Fan can be tested by simply checking that the motor is running when energized.


Here a tip explaining how to deal with defrost problems on a different fridge model: Fridge not cooling. Procedure is similar with your model.

If defrost system is not the culprit, check if the compressor is starting and working properly. If compressor is not starting properly replace the relay and capacitor kit connected to the compressor motor. Compressor motor has long warranty. If the motor itself is defective call the manufacturer to check warranty terms.

If compressor motor and starter kit are OK, defrost system is OK (including defrost control) it can be a refrigerant leak resulting in low gas pressure in lines. In that case the compressor motor will stay on most of the time.

The most common faults resulting in no heat are due to defrost system problems or to defective compressor motor starter kit.

My freezer is working but the refrigerator is not cooling.


Hi.

The problem is common. The coils freeze up because of a defective defrost system. With coils frozen the condenser will go under stress and will loose efficiency. The result is the system not producing enough cold to refrigerate the fresh food section while the freezer section instead keeps working.

The defrost system comprises defrost thermostat, heater, defrost control and fan. The parts that fail more commonly are thermostat and heater. Both parts are located behind freezer firewall and tested reading impedance with a multimeter. Element and thermostat are faulty if they return Ohms infinity (the circuit is open) when reading impedance with a multimeter at the part's contact.

Alarm won't stop beeping


Door left open or temp is too warm. most I found is heavy ice build up on freezer evaporator, very easy to tell, pull out one of the drawer and look on the back wall, it should not have any ice on it (a little frost is OK). It may be bad Evaporator sensor, Evaporator fan motor is not running, door evaporator fan reed switch installed upside down,bad connection on defrost heater connector, bad defrost heater element, open heater HI limit switch, open gap on door gasket and compressor never stop running. If no ice build up and compressor is running but temp is rising then it may be sealed system problem. Good Luck.

Heater turns on runs for short time display reads 120 or so but temp stays at 80 or so


It is probably your thermistor. It is screwed into the header (the place where the pipes come out). To know for sure you would have ohm it out (I am not sure of the ohms of this particular model). If it ohms out ok then it could be the control board.

I have a GSS20IEMAWW that the coils freeze up


Check the defrost heater located on the bottom of the coils. Short have a pretty solid short if using and ohm meter.
