Look open the freezer door pull the lower kick plate off look for a small little hole there its a mechanical timer model should be close to the wheel in that hole will be a plastic piece open the freezer door you will hear the fan running in the freezer take out the four or five screws on the lower panel where you keep seeing the frost and remove it you will see a silver honeycomb looking piece that's the evaporator on one of the tubes will be clipped a silver dome looking piece with two wires on it that's the defrost thermostat now turn the timer with a screwdriver that's the piece in the little hole slowly to your right till you hear a click and the fan stops in the freezer now as your turning it it will make a ratchet sound you want the click and the fan to stop look at your watch and note the time then wait about 5 minutes and look at the heater to see if its on if its all frosted up the frosted should look all watery if the heater is on then just let it run if not then reach up and turn the freezer control to the off position then un plug the two wires on the defrost thermostat and take the two wires that you unplugged the thermostat from and plug them back together and turn the freezer control back on and wait stay there and watch the heater come on let it defrost the evaporator if the heater comes on when you do that .that means the thermostat is bad if the heater comes on without you having to by pass it that means the timer is bad if you do all that and the heater does not come on then the heater element is bad now its going to get red like an oven and pop and sizzle but don't let it freak you out now if you had to by pass the thermostat and the timer cuts the compressor on before the frost is all clear just turn the timer around again till the fan cuts off and the heater will come back on if you by passed the thermostat then when all the frost is melted then reach up and turn the freezer control back off and reconnect the thermostat.Now after about 30 mins after turning it off the timer should cut back on if its not bad when you change the timer back out the two screws reach under the fridge and turn the timer and its shield till the screws are in the removal position when the timer is loose remove the shield and unplug the timer plug your new one back in then put the shield back on and back where it goes now id recommend changing both the timer and the thermostat as they fail pretty close together the stuff i described above is to make the unit defrost to save your food with out having to use your hair dryer also when all the frost is melted at he bottom of the evaporator on the right hand side is a hole in the cabinet that has to be clear of frost for the fridge to cool properly now any time during this defrost technique if you have a problem turning off the freezer cold control will turn off the defrost systemWarm Fridge - 1.gif too if i can be of help or you need to know something just reply to this post

Why does our Smeg fridge drip water internally and externally all the time?


It may have a loose connection on the water/ice maker. It would be best to have a serviceman check it out.

I have a Frigidaire sidexside, purchased in May 2005. The compressor does not come on, and will produce a 'buzzing' sound for approximately 17 seconds. Then the 'buzzing' sound will cease and all is quite....


sorry to tell you that your compressor is bad, what you are hearing is the compressor trying to start, but unable due to shorted windings. not a cheap fix. sorry.

Fridge wont get cold and freezer gets cold then gets warm


Sounds like to me you have a defrost issue. If your fridge is only 2 months old don't sweat it and call out a Whirlpool warrenty certified tech. to fix the problem. And sorry to say age does not matter with fridges any more. The good ole days of fridges lasting 20 years is over now it's 12 years if your lucky.

Small fridge


Empty the fridge freezer and defrost completely (suggest overnight). The freezer section has a coil behind the back wall normally and what you have described is a frozen coil. Then restart the system. If the thermostat or temporary fault was the reason then this should cure it. If your problem reoccurs within three weeks then you might have a defrost problem. If you do have a problem then make sure you get straight back to where you bought it from as soon as possible a you should not be charged. Hope this is of some help.
