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.

SOURCE: defrost timer board for mzd2766geq

Defrost control board is in the top of the refrigerator behind the two levers that control the temperature. You have to take off the plastic cover. There are two screws and then you slide to cover to the side to remove. The board is in a white plastic housing.

Your model doesn't have a defrost timer. Everything is controlled by the main motherboard in the back. The ONLY way to get an acurate diagnosis is to call GE FActory Service at 1-800-432-2737. There is proprietary software and the tech will be able to plug in a laptop to your refer to find out what is going on. No other companies have this or have access to this software. By the way that deforst thermostat you think you found isn't what you think it is. It looks like one but it only a saftey device. Trust me...!

Maytag refrigerator model number rsw22eo having problem with freezer not defrosting


You have a=>68233-3 Defrost Timer mounted somewhere behind the kick plate at base next to floor. Can you turn the timer slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans stop? I want you to force the refrigerator into defrost. If after 30 minutes the refrigerator does not restart running again replace the defrost timer. Once you place the refrigerator into defrost the elements should melt the ice that has been building up. If placing the timer into defrost does not help you will need to replace the=> 61001846 Defrost Heater Assembly . I am here if you have questions, John Tripp Appliance 911

How to Replace a Defrost Timer in a refrigerator?


What is timer?
Timer is a small motorized unit that controls the function of defrosts cycle in a refrigerator. The defrost timer tells the refrigerator when to cool and when to defrost any ice frost collected on/in the evaporator coil.
Now the procedure to replace the timer is as follows:--
1) First of all for proper safety please unplug the unit from power outlet.
2) Then to locate the timer. It is located behind the refrigerator beside the compressor of the refrigerator. You will have to remove the metal kick plate on the bottom of the refrigerator. In older models refrigerator it is built into the icemaker unit.
3) In some models timer is fitted by the screws on the side wall of the refrigerator unit. so if screws are seen remove the screws holding the timer to the refrigerator wall.
4) Then slowly/carefully remove the timer out of the unit so you can disconnect the wiring from the connectors. For easy access of connectors try wiggling the connectors back and forth it will be disconnected.
5) Before removing the connectors please take a note of which connector was connected where and in what position.
6) Then take a new timer and plug the connectors in same position and at same spot in the new timer.
7) The refit the screws if you removed while removing the old defrost timer, replace the kick plate cover and plug in refrigerator and check out.
This will help. Thanks.

Defroster timer


Hello there,
Defrost timer is what is set automatically by the defrost unit consisting of the defrost thermostat, defrost heater and the defrost timer. It is the timer that sets the routine timing of self defrost in the refrigerator.
If the defrost timer goes bad, it will stop the defrosting cycle of the refrigerator.

Replacing defrost timer,needs manuel


I check there is no free manual for Kenmore, I find. Better follow these steps to replace defrost timer.

Unplug the refrigerator. Locate the defrost timer. The timershould have four metal terminals coming from the bottom of the unit. It isusually situated behind the refrigerator, in the refrigerator's control panel,the freezer compartment toward the front of the cabinet or behind a metal kickplate on the bottom of the refrigerator. Older Kenmore models may have it builtinto the ice maker. Remove the defrost timer by takingoff the kick plate (if there is one) and removing any screws attaching it tothe refrigerator or freezer. Carefully pull the timer out from the wall of theunit so you can disconnect the wiring from the connectors. If removal isdifficult, try wiggling the connectors back and forth to help loosen them andpull on them firmly. Plug the wire connectors into thenew defrost timer and replace the timer in the refrigerator. Secure with screws, replace coverand plug in refrigerator.
Thanks and helpful?

It is not cooling as it should like a refrigerator. As if the fan is on.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
