Would need the full model number to get the factory part number for you. But it sounds like the simple problem of the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control.

Maytag 51105349JA refrigerator top freezer snowing up and won't stop running


Defrost thermostat, defrost timer or defrost heating element is bad. Because of that the evaporator is clogged with ice and the cold air cannot get to the fresh food section. Therefore the thermostat control doesn't get cold enough to turn off the compressor. On the other hand the temperature thermostat may be bad and stuck inn the on position causing the ref to operate continuously thereby defeating the defrost cycle. Uplug the ref and allow it to thaw completely. (24hours). Then while its quiet... turn the thermostat to OFF or 0 and then to the coldest setting and listen for a click sound. No click sound means bad thermostat. Later after thawing plug in refrigerator and observe function after 2 hours and check for cold air flow to the fresh food section. If the refrigerator appears to be okay... the problem is a defrost issue. Most typically a defrost thermostat is bad, but when behind the freezer panel is a good time to perform an ohm/ continuity check on the defrost heating element.

Frigidaire freezer runs a lot. Located in garage. In summer runs almost non-stop. Currently outside temps are below 0 deg F and freezer still cyles frequently. Have replace the freezer tstat. Defrost...


Yup, these timers have a tiny clock motor that can get lint on them, causing motor failure, should be simple replacement. Refrigerators in cold garages run more to regulate their temperature below 45 degrees.

Frost is building on the back part of freezer. Whirlpool refrigerator model ER2CHMXPL02 and has not cycled on/off for over 24 hours.


The reason your refrigerator will not cycle off is because it cannot satisfy the thermostat because ice is blocking air flow across evaporator inside the back wall of your freezer. I want you to look for a small hole inside the control panel where you can place a flathead screwdriver and slowly turn the timer clockwise until compressor and fans stop. If there is no hole there you will need to lower the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. Here is your replacement defrost timer should it turn out to not be good=> 2314156 Defrost Timer

Once the compressor and fans stop I want you to wait up to 30 minutes to see if the compressor and fans restart. If they do not restart on their own simply turn clockwise again until they do. Doing this will test the timer and cause the freezer to go into defrost. If defrost does not work this way and ice buildup remains on the rear wall of freezer we will need to remove the rear panel in freezer and manually defrost the evaporator with a hair drier. This way we will be able to inspect the=> W10140847 Defrost Heater Assembly

Freezer works but refrigerator does not


First, open the freezer and look for a snowy frost build-up. See if it's bad enough to cause bulging in the inner panel at the back. If so, you may have a defrost problem. Also, make sure nothing is blocking the ariflow between the freezer and fresh food sections.

Listen to see if the compressor is running. If it is, open the refrigerator side and turn the freezer control off, then back on, three times within six seconds. Did the compressor stop running? If not, the problem is very likely the adaptive defrost control board. Replace it.

If it does stop after "forcing a defrost cycle", you probably have a burnt-out defrost heater. It will need to be replaced.

Why is my refrigerator not working properly? well , since I got it I have problems because it never seems to get cold or work properly. I think it might be cause it is digital.


This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)

Freezer not freezing properly, ice on back wall


Ice on the back wall indicates a problem with the defrost cycle. The ice builds up and starts to choke off the air flow, so your symptoms would indicate that may be happening.

Defrost problems are usually any of the three components, the heater element, the defrost termination temp switch, or the defrost timer.

Freezer not working


Sounds like a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary defrost the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks.

To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain.

The defrost systems is:
HEATER-DEFROST
THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
Adaptive defrost control
Start with the adaptive defrost control board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.

To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. �d� and �F� will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)

Heater / Thermostat
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

GE Monogram Side by Side 42" Freezer light is lit on front panel.


The defrost timer is what I think you are asking. It is behind a cover near the light, The timer puts the fridge in defrost ever 6 to 8 hours. If the timer is bad it will stop the cycle of defrost and cause the freezer and the cold food section to warm spoiling the food and increase the freezer temp. Try turning the timer screw clockwise until you hear the fridge compressor stop. If after this listen for a crackling noise that will be the sound of defrost taking place. If doing this starts defrost, you will need to replace the timer.

Ice build up in back section of a Whirlpool no frost top freezer refrigerator 66"hx30"wx27"d


your sure the defrost cycle works? sounds to me its not. you need to remove the freezer back and check the defrost components. or put it in the defrost cycle and see if it is working. to get that much frost as you describe the dor would have to be left open. also check all door seals. let me know what you find and we can go from there
