Question about Kenmore 64802 Top Freezer Refrigerator
On the last heat wave my fridge stopped cooling (freezer working but not fully).
Now the temperature outside is cooler and the fridge cools a bit but not enough and it gets frost at the back (freezer ok). Supposed to be frost free. Any ideas please?
Since you are getting frost in you frost free refrigerator, tell me that the defrost circuit has a problem. It is made of a defrost timer/module, defrost heater and defrost thermostat. What should happen is that the defrost timer should periodically turn off the compressor for about 30 minutes and turn power to the defrost heater via the thermostat. The heater is attached to the evaporator coil and melts any frost build up on those coils.
It sounds like the defrost circuit has not been working for a while because the ice build up is not allowing the air to circulate around the coils to cool the refrigerator. The typical failures to the defrost circuit are the defrost timer motor fails to advance, or the defrost heater burns out. Hope this helps you.
