Do you mean the defrost timer or the t-stat control?

3 things
If you have ice on the freezer side.
1. defrost timer not working
2. blower fan failed, if it has one
3. defrost limit switch failed..

last but not least your defrost heat coil has failed

Freezer works refrigerator does not get cold not sure of the model not home right now am at work


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

I have a westing house BJ414 and dont seen to be getting much air flow into the fridge section? the fan is runnong aand the freezer is reaching temp?


maybe too much food in top part of fridge. Cold air comes from top of fridge near light. Can you feel cold air coming from there? Put a fridge thermometer in the top section-they only cost a few $ from kmart etc -the temp should be 2-4 deg C. My thermostat is turned to warmest setting and its still in that range. Does fridge cycle on and off every 1/2hr or so? If it runs nonstop, it may be the freezer section is all frosted up, probably coz the defrost timer has stopped working or else the defrost element has burned out. Both can be easily replaced by you.

I have a fridgedaire fridge the freezer is on top. And it is not freezing i changed the defrost switch and the timer and it is still not freezing. What do you think it is?


defrost has nothing to do with freezing.its for thawing the frost off the evap coils. are the coils in the freezer frosty? if the fans are running and the compressor is running and no frost on coils then freon is leaking or compr. valves are shot.
