    If this is a hoshi ice maker, try tapping on the water float valve. This keeps it in the fill cycle untill it senses water in the res.

Go to this web site. You will find the service manual and the parts manual. Look on page 4 of the parts manual. Look at item "C" with circle around it. This is the water float. It is probably stuck. If it does not move during start up, the machine registers as if there is no water in the sump so it stays in the "Fill" cycle and will not go into the freeze cycle. Tap on this and see if it starts to function. You can also drain the water out of the sump and take this float apart and clean it. Just be sure not to break the small rod across the bottom of the assy that holds the float in the assy.
Good Luck and hope this helps you out.

MASTER BILT FREESER M.N. THC27 DOES NOT GO ON DEFROST?


DEFROST PROBLEM
The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can't flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won't turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it's bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it's in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. 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 because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.
You can post your model number into one of several appliance parts sites on the internet and search for defrost components to find your parts.

My whirlpool ART 900G fridge freeser, the freezer works but the fridge wont chill


Check the fan that moves the air from the freezer side to the refrigerator side. It is either stuck in ice or not working. Defrost the refrigerator for 24 hours and then restart it Listen for the fan operation be aware that the fan may shut off when you open the door, so listen closely. Defrosting it may fix or the fan may need to be replaced.

Freezer cycling on and off rapidly


If it still maintaining temperature but is short cycling your control for the temperature is wearing out causing the short cycling. This is a replaceable part that can be obtained through a dealer or appliance parts supplier. By lower setting do you mean lower number on the control, or lower temperature setting? Normally the higher the number the colder the temperature.
