Question about Refrigerators
Frost building up on the inside back wall of the freezer. The fan is now making noise as it works to spin against the frost build up. Where is the manual defrost timer switch and how can I get at the the defrost limit switch on this manual. Also is there any thing else I should be looking at? The model is a bottom freezer single top door with water dispencer and ice maker.
Ihe MODEL IS LRDC 22744 ST
I had the same trouble. I found out if you have the digital display of temperature type of refrigerator adjust the freezer temperature to +5 degrees. The defrost systems uses a circuit board type. Not sure how it works. I took the back panel of and looked at the board. Did not see any manual defrost methods. I had to remove all the contents of the freezer and manually defrost. have not a problem since.

You have a problem in the automatic defrost circuit. I suppose you know that !
You may have to disconnect the power from your refrigerator and use hot water in a pot or a hair drier to melt the ice away. You'll have to remove the back cover of the freezer and clear the ice from there too. You most likely have an open defrost heater and/or defrost thermostat.
If you have a tech sheet which is normally stored near the compressor section, you can trace the circuits and find your problem. If you're not comfortable with this kind of work , you'll need to call a tech to check it out for you. If you don't do something soon you'll lose all the food in both your refrigerator and freezer sections.
I hope this helps you
