You have either a bad defrost heater,defrost thermostat or defrost timer.
The defrost timer is located in the control panel box in the fresh food section. The heater and thermostat are in the freezer section behind the rear panel.
On this brand it is usually the defrost timer.

My fridge part of fridge/freezer doesn't work


Post the model number of the refrigerator. Defrost freezer behind where the cold air circulates with a hair drier. (unplug power first!) Most times when a refrigerator side stops cooling it is because the freezer evaporator behind the panel in the back of freezer (most times) has become blocked by frost=> SEE PHOTO Most times the panel before you see the frosted covering the evaporator will begin to show a layer of frost building=> SEE PHOTO (Click each photo to enlarge.) Sometimes the fresh food section of the refrigerator side will warm because ice or frost will block the damper from moving that regulates temperatures in the fresh food section. Sometimes the damper is defective and sometimes the sensor that controls the damper movement is defective. For these reasons it is important that you provide your model numbers so someone knows just what type refrigerator you have to cover all of the possibilities of what may be wrong causing the warming of the fresh food section and soon the freezer section will also begin to warm. The most likely cause are the defrost control, ADC Adaptive Defrost Control, defrost heater, defrost thermostat, air damper and air damper sensors in that order. Let me know what you have and I will try to identify just what may be happening, Thanks Sea Breeze

Fridge is cold, freezer is not


Please look into the freezer for frost build-up on the rear wall. If you are having a defrost problem it may limit the freezer temperature and still be cold enough for the fresh food section to remain at safe temperatures but not for long before freezer and fresh food section warms because frost blocks airflow and the evaporator is unable to keep everything cold because of frost build-up. I don't have your model number so I will list the parts that may need to be replaced. The defrost control=> 12002754 Frost Kit, defrost thermostat and 67002493 Defrost Heater Assembly

67003426 Defrost Thermostat
8_23_2012_11_24_51_am.jpg

For testing of the defrost thermosat and defrost heater refer to the same page as the parts, If these parts are good the the 12002754 Frost Kit, could be defective. The 12002754 Frost Kit,
can be found in the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. Let me know if you have questions and also if you are not having a defrost problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Coil in freezer continues to freeze up. Then we have to defrost it again. Frig doesn't stay cold then freezer food doesn't stay frozen


You will need to remove the food and shelves from your freezer and then the back panel. Look for ice buildup on the coils and around the cold air tubes that allows cold air to enter your refrigerator. If you do have frost then you should unplug your refrigerator and defrost your freezer. You can use a hair dryer to hurry the process along, but be ready with a large sponge and bucket to deal with the water. The defrost sytem is usually made of three basic components: The defrost heater, the thermostat and the timer. You can check the heater and thermostat with an ohm meter - if you have continuity - less than infinity on your meter then they are normally good. If not replace which ever one didn't have continuity. If both are good then it is the timer and you will need to order one and replace it. You can do this by going to www.searspartsdirect.com and plug in your refrigerator model number in and pull up the diagram for you refrigerator. Those three parts will be in the freezer compartment - it will also give you an idea of what they look like if you are having a problem in identifying them.

Now for the good news. Your refrigerator will work without them for a week or so now that you have defrosted your freezer! So you can plug it back in and let it get cold and just wait for your delivery. NOTE: Suggest you take a digital photo of how it looks so if you can't remember later, you have something to refer to.

Frosts up wont get cold MCBR1000S


If freezer is icing up, 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

Freezer frost


An upright freezer that is not frost free will have the coils in the shelves (shelves are non-removeable) and that is where the frost will buildup.  If your model is like this then it will have to be defrosted periodically.  If your not sure then give me the entire model # from the sticker inside the freezer and I will look it up for you.
