I need the compressor to run for a longer period of time. what do I do? Does the defrost timer has anything to do with it


Yes, when the defrost cycle is running the compressor isn't. Defrost timer should run a defrost cycle twice a day. Interval is 12 hours, defrost usually takes 20 to 30 minutes. Some cycle the compressor backwards slowly to warm the evaporator and melt the frost faster. I had a commercial walk in freezer that defrosted every 2 hours and had an evaporator heater element. The timer switches off the compressor and turns on the heater.

What is the best temp . for my freezer and fridge on Boshe 44 intelligent and how often should the motor stop for self defrost per day


the compressor and or condenser fan have nothing to do with defrost cycle which is determined by the thermistor which turns on the defrost heater

meaning the defrost heater can glow hot whether or not the condenser fan and or compressor is running.

the defrost heater will activate many times in a 24hr period, the colder you keep everything - the more it is activated.

best temps are:
freezer: 28-31
refrigerator: 39-41

My freezer keeps defrosting. I have tried unplugging it and plugging it in and turning down the temperature but it still continues to go into the defrost cycle or not work the fan completely turns off in...


i think that what you call the defrost is just the compressor not running so it warms . a defrost cycle does turn the heaters on for about 28 min and then goes baci into cold cycle . so if compressor is not running enough look for bad relay on compressor or bad control board that keep thins in ck .. mm

Is the ge tbx19 defrost clock continious or cumulative?


The timer will advance whenever the cold control is on. (when the compressor is running, or the timer has advanced into a defrost cycle) When the refrig is cold enough (and the timer has not advanced into defrost) the timer will not be advancing. A typical defrost timer will count up 8 hours of compressor run time before going into a 30 minute defrost cycle. (the run time and defrost time can vary greatly from model to model)

Compressor running non-stop


Temperature setting/changes takes more than 2 hours to stabilize.If still running non stop after 24 hours use a digital thermometer to check the internal temp of refrigerator. If not cold enough it will not open the thermometer and turn off the compressor. Meanwhile, a 20 minute defrost cycle is about right.

Long run time between defrost cycles


You have a broken defrost part. Either the heater, t-stat or timer. The longer you let it go without repairing it, the more parts is take out.

Refrigerator section on side by side losing cooling


Here is the Amana website with the manuals which should show you where the defrost timer etc. is located. Witht your model number and manual it will be a lot easer

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=AMA

And yes the defrost timer thermostat and heater are the most likely problem.

Do not let this keep running and running or you may lose your compressor too which means a lot more expense than now.

Motor never turns itself off


If by motor you mean the compressor itself then no, it should not run all the time. The compressor should run until the thermostat senses the temp. is at where you set it then turns off the compressor. A couple of possible things... if the unit has a leak in the refrigerant then it may run almost continuously since it can barely reach the cold setting you have selected. Or the temp. sensor thermostat may be bad and the unit doesn't know to turn off. There is also a defrost cycle that happens about every 12 hours for a few minutes (depending on make/model on how it works) but that should also turn off the compressor and fans until the defrost cycle is completed. Basically it should turn off when the temp. setpoint is reached or when it's in the defrost cycle.
