You may have a bad defrost heater (around cold coils in freezer)

Which is shorting out the card. or some other short.

Location of defrost timer on frigidaire model lfus2613f3


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

It appears that the defrost timer of your Frigidaire refrigerator (LFUS2613F3) uses the main control board to energize defrost. The defrost timer is located at the front of the control console in the fresh food compartment (display that controls all functions). I do hope this information proves to be helpful! - Z

I cannot find the defrost timer on my Frigidaire FRS3R4EB3; I've looked at manuals online and still can't figure it out. Anyone know?


You don't have a timer you have an adaptive defrost control which controls when it defrost. If your heater and defrost thermostat are ok then the control is bad. Part 23 on this diagram. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5153839&diagram_id=1247647#d1247647

Inside the refrig section at the top about 2" in from each side in the back , there are "D" slots to put a finger in , and pull downward and foreward , to remove the control panel cover . Once removed , there is a 1/4" screw on each side holding the adjustment indicator panel on , 1 phillips screw behind both light bulbs , and 1 screw holding the complete panel to the rear wall . After removing these 5 screws , at the top right corner , with about 6-8 wires going to it , is the adaptive defrost board .

The alarm went off indicating that it the temperature had risen above the recommended level for keeping food frozen and safe. However, the temperature knob is set to the highest possible level.


DEFROST PROBLEM
The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others. You can post your model number into one of several appliance parts sites on the internet and search for defrost components to find your parts.

The refrigerator is not cooling


If your freezer is frosting up, fresh food section is warm: bad fan motor,defrost drain stopped up and forming slab of ice between the freezerand the fresh food section. Check heaters andterminator(defrost thermostat) unplug the ice box and let it defrostcompletely. Clear objects from drain. Check timer. Note to find thelocation of your timer look up your model number online here: APPLIANCEPARTSPROS.COM.
Check under the bottom for the fan motor to be running and the cobwebs, dust, dirt, and pet hair, off the condenser coils. If the fanunderneath has quit then the ice box won't get cold. BASIC REFRIGERATION REPAIR MANUAL

Frigidaire GS26HSZCC7


it sounds like it could be the defrost timer/board hanging up in defrost periodically. this refrigerator has an adaptive defrost control board that acts like a defrost timer. it keeps track of how long it takes the freezer to defrost and schedules the time between defrost cycles accordingly (to save electricity). old defrost timers would go thru a defrost cycle every 12 hours whether it needed it or not. so i would suspect that this control board may be malfunctioning. the control board is item # 1036287 at repairclinic.com. you will need a repair technician to test it and make sure it is bad before spending $75 on it.
