Dip the thermostat into a glass of ice water. if the compressor stays on you have a bd control thermostat. Clean your coils. use a foaming coil cleaner that is non rinse for indoor use.

How do I do a forced defrost cycle? Amana refrig afb25340deb, 12576629jj


It sounds like you have more than the problem of the defrost cycle not keeping up with frost buildup.

The usual cause of excessive frost is that the freezer door is not fully closed, OR the gasket is not fitted properly, OR the gasket is worn. IF this is the problem, then when it is corrected, the normal defrost cycle timing will keep up.

Depending on the fridge, there may be a small timer for the defrost cycle, and it looks like the small, round timer motor in a dishwasher, clothes washer, and is usually located in the bottom section where the compressor is located. Often it's near the front, and if the grating at the lower front of the fridge is removed you can find it.

The timer [if your fridge uses this type, versus some solid state timing device built into a circuit board] will usually have a small plastic "shaft" / knob sticking out of the center. Rotating this shaft clockwise should advance the time when the defrost cycle begins.

IT DOES NOT, REPEAT DOES NOT, shorten the time BETWEEN cycles, only ADVANCES the "clock." You will have to readjust each time you want to accelerate the defrost start.

Good luck and hope this helpout.....

Loud vibration

If it is a frost free check the fan inside. The fans can have bearing failure after a few years thus causing the vibration. Also the compressor underneath is mounted on rubber vibration dampers and if one of these rubber mounts fail then the compressor will start vibrating against the refrigerator frame causing a loud vibration. If none of these apply gently press on the side and front panel of the refrigerator to try and locate the source of the vibration as any where metal is vibrating against metal the side and front panel act as a sounding board amplifying the sound. If you cant locate the vibration then you may have a more serious problem and may need to call a technician.

Frost build up in freezer and warm temp in a GE Profile TFX22PRXB

Modern refrigerators are designed to self defrost and it is essential to the airflow to have an evaporator coil that is clear for air movement. If the rear interior panel of the freezer has frost appearing, it is most likely a defrost problem and must be corrected before temperatures can be restored to normal. Your refrigerator most likely has a defrost timer located on bottom behind grate, or inside behind control panel. Could you find the correct model number so I can help you better. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Look at following areas for the model number
  • Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
  • On Plate Lower Front Or Rear Of Cabinet
  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet
  • Inside Liner At Top

Model HDN455

Check the coils at the back of the dehumidifier to see if there is any frost buildup on it. If there is, turn off the machine for a while until the room warms up and melts off the frost. The machine works by condensing the moisture in the air over these coils, so if the coils are frosted over, or are not cold enough, the moisture cannot condense. If the coils are not cold enough, you may want to get it refilled with refrigerant. You will need to take it in for servicing in this case.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
