Good day,
The automatic defrost system is made up of 3 components. The main defrost heater, mounted to the bottom of the cooling coil,
and a defrost thermostat which is mounted to the top of that same coil but clipped to the top. It is a round disk approx 1" in diameter.
You can access both by removing the back panel in the freezer compartment. The thermostat can be checked with a vom meter but must be below 25 degrees to test properly. It should read zero ohms of resistance. The main heater can be tested the same way and should have a resistance reading of less than 35 ohms.
Here are 2 examples of both. Yours may appear different.

The last item is the defrost control itself. It may be a mechanical timer or an electronic defrost control. It is located in the roof of the fresh food compartment behind the main controls.

Here is an excellent tutorial on defrost systems.

Freezer working fine but refrigerator not cooling


If your refrigerator freezer compartment is cold, but the refrigerator compartment is warm--It could be a defrost problem. When a defrost problem occurs, it is usually the fault of one or more of three basic parts: defrost timer/adaptive defrost control, freezer thermostat or the defrost heater element. See in detail how to dx and fix: Refrigerator Defrost Parts .

This is the second time the freezer accumulates water and freezers at the bottom of the freezer section of the Admiral HMG67158, 26.6 cu ft freez/refrig. The coils behind the panel were completely frozen...


unplug unit, remove back panel inside freezer and manually defrost with hair dryer, sounds like you have a defrost problem, check defrost thermostat, defrost heater or defrost timer, defrosting with hair dryer will fix until it freezes up again

1999 Frigidaire Refrigerator


Check rear wall of freezer by feel for frost. Heavy, even frost indicates likely problem in the defrost system. Unplug unit. Defrost heater (in freezer behind rear wall panel), defrost thermostat (same area-must be checked at freezer temperature) or Defrost timer-located lower back outside of unit. Near compressor. Do continuity test on heater and defrost thermostat and if they show continuity (good), replace defrost timer. If not, replace the one that tests bad.

Defrost coils fully. Reassemble.

Please let me know if I have helped with comments and rating.

Refrigerator will work about 7-10 days after being defrosted until thick frost builds up again cutting off air flow to both compartments

Whirlpool French Door Freezer on the bottom not cooling and freezer freezing up


You have a dfrost problem if at all possible remove food from refrigerator and unplug it, leave the doors open. By morning the freezer should be defrosted and that will buy you time to fix or call someone. defrosting can be quickened with use of a hair dryer. This is only a TEMPORARY fix and freezer will need to be defrosted again after 4-5 days.
