When i start my vehicle when it's cold and turn on the dfrost it does not clear the windshield

I would suspect you have the controls set for defrost, if no hot air is blowing from vents, you could have a blend door that is not functioning, switch from defrost to panel to floor and listen to hear blend door moving, if you hear the door you have hot or warm air on any other setting? if not check the antifreeze level under the hood, some vehicles can be very finicky even if a little low on antifreeze.

The only reliable reset on a refridgerator is at the defrost switch. Remove the front bottom panel from your fridge and you'll see a small clockmotor with a couple wires leading to it. In the center of this you'll see a screwdriver slot. Turn the knob very slowly to the right(clockwise) until you hear a click, do not turn the slot counterclockwise. Once you've done this, check for cooling in the freezer part. It should take about five minutes till it starts to cool. If this solves your problem, than the defrost timer should be replaced. Thank you, Dana

Water is leaking from freezer into refridgerator plus there is alot of frost in freezer

Your drain is probably blocked from ice because it isn't defrosting. To make sure the heater hasn't failed try doing the following.
To test whether the defrost timer is simply failing to advance, locate the advance screw and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. This advances it to the next mode. If it was cooling before, it is now in defrost mode. Simply wait about 35 minutes and check whether it has left defrost mode and has resumed cooling (listen for the compressor). If it does not advance, the timer motor is probably bad and the entire timer needs to be replaced. If it advances as it should, then you can follow the steps below to test the switch electrically.
The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector. The connector can be removed by firmly pulling and rocking it left and right. It is not necessary to note the position of the wires because the connector plug is keyed so that it can be replaced in only one way.

Refridgerator is not cold enough

Most likely you have a problem with the defrost cycle, Find the timer and advance it unil it clicks.Then observe the freezer compart it should start melting the ice from the coils behind th back wall in a few seconds. if you cant see it you should be able to hear the crackling of ice if the door is open.
