Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a 1990 kenmore side by side and the freezer is not defrosting. Removed the coil cover and it was iced over. Checked the defrost element and I have continuity and a small resistance. I turned the defrost timer to a cycle and measured about 12.5 volts at the element plug. Any ideas?
Probably a bad def sensor. attached to the top of the coooling coil is a round sensor that senses heat form the def heater and terminates defrost when the coil cleared of ice. the part is model specific and is fairly inexpensive.
