Freezer needs to be defrosted every 3 to 4 days


d733fa48-872b-424b-a7d4-ec9c6fab3da9.jpg
Let's Try turning the defrost timer clockwise slowly. 67001036 Defrost Timer The defrost timer is item location 12 in this photo HERE and there should be a hole with a plastic plug covering the hole that you place the screwdriver through. Turn timer with a flat head screwdriver slowly until the compressor and fans stop. With fans and compressor stopped for up to 30 minutes the defrost heater should come on. If doing this causes the defrost to take place simply replace the defrost timer. If not then please let me know and I will instruct you on how to change the=> 67001794 Defrost Heater Assembly and the 12001937 Defrost Thermostat Thanks Sea Breeze

I think defrost timer frig doesnt cool enough and freezer frost up


I think you are having a defrost problem that could be related to a defective defrost timer, adaptive defrost control board, defrost heater or defrost thermostat. Can you post the model number of your refrigerator found around the fresh food section door frame? This is to insure I can point you to the correct parts. All I know is that you have a Whirlpool Refrigerator and these models all have different different parts for the defrost. Thanks Sea Breeze

Bad defrost timer


The defrost timer is bad when the frig goes into defrost and stays off the frig should restart if you turn the timer, the frig will run fine until the timer cycles back to defrost then the frig will not restart. If this is what happens, replace timer and your problems are solved.

The freezer keeps defrosting.....starts to cool down then back in defrost mode again. Also the bottom of the fridge is not keeping things cold anymore. Could you please help me on what could be...


the defrosting mode could a problem with the defroster timer. as for the bottom one if the top is not cooling the bottom one wont either. the freezer fan is what also keeps the bottom frig cool. the defrost timer should be on the bottom frig close to the ligth.

Where is the defrost timer located on a G E side by side frig?


Your fridge does nt have a defrost timer. For the model PSS26MSRSS you will need a main board linked below.

Thanks for asking.

Our GE profile freezer/frig - frig side has ice on coils


Sounds like the automatic defrost system is not working. The usual problem is the defrost heater, the defrost thermostat, or the defrost timer. If any of these parts are bad, it will not defrost.

My Bosch upright fridge is not defrosting & has a wall of ice on the back. The fan does not appear to be working either. Is that the problem? - cant remember how often I see the fan working now!Thanks


I kind of doubt that the fan is the problem. On my refrigerator, when it goes on defrost, the fan shuts off. They don't want it blowing heated air on the milk. Yours might be different.

I don't know this particular frig, but evidently the defroster doesn't work. Perhaps the fan doesn't work also, or perhaps the fan would work if the defroster were fixed.

There is a defrost timer, under the frig, accessible from the front. You can turn it with a screw driver. Turn it till you hear a click. If the timer hasn't been turning, that should turn on the defroster, a heating element nested among the freezer coils. Wait half an hour and if it is defrosting, water should be dripping into the drip pan underneath the frig. If so, then replace the defrost timer and you're good to go.

If that doesn't make it defrost, then the problem is probably the defrost thermostat, in with the freezer coils. When the frig defrosts, the defrost heater stays on until the defrost thermostat gets warm. It should be open circuit while warm. But if it is open circuit while cold, it is bad and is the cause of your defrost problem.

If you open up the freezer coils, use a hair dryer to defrost. That is safer than hot water.

I think that when the defrost heater is turned on, then the fan is likewise turned off. The defrost thermostat, I think, is doing it's job, letting it cool again. But the timer is stuck. Or something???.

Hope you can fix it.

Freezer works but frig is not cooling


I don't know this particular frig, but evidently the defroster doesn't work. Frost buildup has blocked the flow of cold air.
