is the freezer freezing too? to much ice build up? if not check ur damper vent, make sure its not stuck closed or open to far, check the thermistors, the tempeture control thermostat, defrost timer and defrost terminator
Hi, The would be a problem with the defrost sticking and staying on too long...change the defrost timer/control board out.... the defrost cycle is making the freezer warm and then it goes off and the freezer refreezes...
most times it fails the other way and does not work at all but sometimes this happens...
poss answer is drain hole/vent blocked,as unit auto defrosts water/vapour collects at bottom and when unit swiches back on it freezes,poke out drain with thin wire with a small piece of cloth dipped in clorine bleach or blow out with air hose.do not use hot water to manually defrost/ clean drain holes every 6 months
your damper door is most likely frozen in the fully open position,thaw it out if iced up,then adjust cold control to see if it closes,the door is inside between the refrige and freezer compartments,also if this happens again check the door seals to make sure they are sealing good and not letting in warm air that can condense and refreeze this door
Either defrost timer or Refrigerator thermostat, both located in the ceiling of the refrigerator, can give you long enough off times to actually cause thawing and then refreezing. Feel the rear wall of the freezer, half way down to see if a layer of frost has formed on it. This can indicate a problem in the defrost system which has three components.
The only way to be sure which of the two components is the cause would be to catch it in the thawing phase (not running). Tapping hard on the refrigerator temperature control knob can make it come on if it is the source of your problem. Good Luck
yes totally defrost unit and verify drain is not plugged, make sure drain is trapped. it may drain into a pan on top of compressor, where heat dissipated by compressor evaporates condensate. certain crosly model freezers made by w.c. wood co. have a problem with that.
