The most likely reason for that happening on that model is the defrost heater being burned out. If you change the defrost heater you should also change the defrost thermostat. Another potential problem is a condenser fan or the mother board. Sea Breeze

    Providing your model number is correct PSS26MSRSS the defrost heater part number is Click Here=> WR51X10042 and the part number for the defrost thermostat is Click Here=> WR50X10054 You can find me here or HERE. And below also is a photo of the defrost thermostat. Just let me know and I will help you all the way through the repair. The defrost heater if burned out will be easy to see once the freezer has been manually defrosted by unplugging and removing the rear panel in the back of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to speed up the process or if it's not frozen over you need to let me know so the board won't be damaged, Looking to hear from you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The fridge side is cooled by the freezer side. Try unplugging power, open freezer door and let thaw out/defrost.

The freezer part is working good but the cooler side cools but not enough


the damper vent door between the freezer and fridge section isnt opening up to let cold air in from the freezer side to cool the fridge side,its behind a plastic grille near the top between the 2 compartments,there is also an evaporator fan near this and it also needs to be operating to move the cool air

Our freezer works fine ....but our frige isnt ..help!!!!!!!!!!


Your automatic defrost system is not working. There is a timer which controls the defrost by turning on the heaters for 18-22 minutes inside the back wall of the freezer section. after the defrost time it returns the system to cooling.

You have one of three items faulty. The timer, the heater or the defrost terminator switch.
