Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Runs, but not automatically.

One day found everything melting . turned the temp. dial off and back to medium . started running again and run hours before stopped again and did not come back on till i played with the dial . sears guy said possible defrost timer or compressor ( drawing 1.6 amps vs. 1.0) . changed d. timer, no help . so fridge still runs couple hours and shuts off, ice starts melting and won't restart without playing with temp. dial?

I have a GE sensor microwave oven. Tried to heat food and sensor eror came on. Everything is running even the timer but no sound but the timer is running. Cant this be reset pls help


HELLO.

This is the solution to reset your microwave.

1 Pressing the clock button will display the time. You can also use this to know what time it is while cooking.

1. Set the clock by pressing the "Clock" button.

2. Turning the dial on the GE sensor microwave oven will display the hour of the day. Once you have found the correct hour, press the dial in.

3. Again, turn the dial to set the minutes of the day. When this is completed, you will need to press the dial in again on the GE sensor microwave oven.

4. When the time and minutes are set, turn the dial again for a.m. or p.m. Then you will need to press the dial in to save the settings.

5. Press the "Start" button to allow the clock to begin on the GE sensor microwave oven.

Thanks.

What is code 93


93 is sleep mode
after setting the amount of hours you want the system runs then down and then sleeps
the system will then turn on again the same time the next day and run those hours again

Unplug and re plug if you want to change the hours

also remeber it is not wise to let it run cycles like that
some days you need different hours of generating

It all depends on what chlorine level you started with

FREEZER ERRATIC. Will work for 6 to 12 hours and


You will have to remove the inside rear freezer panel .The # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to temp setting .

Bosch fridge freezer stops working after approx 8 hours. Starts OK and freezes OK but next day it's warming up. Turn it off and back on again and it starts all over again and the problem reoccurs..


Found a solution at

www.reviewcentre.com/vt100228_start50_orderasc.html

Short out the dark blue and the dark brown wires that lead into the temp control dial. Everything now works. This bipasses a dodgy thermister or something. Of course this might not solve all similar problems but it does seem a common fault.

Freezer coils frost up within minutes after being turned back on


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

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. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Whirlpool freezer and the refrigerator.


Chances are your defrosting clock is stuck or quit working.
The clock works as timer to set time for defrost, at which time it stops the compressor, and turns a heater tube next the cooling coils to melt ice. It depends on your expertise if you want to try replacement,as most replacement are universal, and some rewiring is sometime involved. The clock is usually in front at the bottom behind the removable grill, or in the back. It looks like a square box with a dial that has a one way turn knob. To check use flat screwdriver to slowly turn dial (you can only turn one way) until the compressor stops, then wait to see if compressor starts back on it's own (it might take as long as 30 min.).
If it does not start it's bad and need replacement. Of course you can turn dial again until it starts again so you can use fridge. If it does start it could still have been the problem where the clock got stuck, and you got it going again by turning the knob, but let it run. If it works for a while and then have the same problem again the replace clock.
Hope this helps you

My whirlpool Refrigerator motor keeps running


Keep an eye on the running time and temparture of the refrigerator. It will need time to return to normal cooling temps since the defrost and hot temps inside will take maybe a few more hours to reach normal. If not, get back with me and I will go through a step by step process on eliminations,  If so I will need age of fridge, Make and Models Numbers, Thanks Sea Breeze
