Question about Sanyo SR-3660S Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

We were defrosting the Sanyo SR3660S at our office and when there was no more ice present plugged it back in. We then noticed a wire? covered in white coating that was bent funny and looked like it was not attached to anything. We turned the fridge back on and when we got back to work the next day the fridge was still not cold. We thought maybe it was not turned on but the button was turned to high and you could hear the fridge running. What could be the problem?

Samsung RB215LABP ice in bottom of fridge but freezer won't get over 35


Step 1:

You almost certainly have a defrost issue with this unit. Your best bet with a Samsung is to call a qualified service tech to complete your repair. If you want to try it yourself here is what you would need to do to test this unit. If your unit is not defrosting it can not circulate the air and will cause the unit to warm up.

Step 2:

Unplug the unit and remove the back cover on the unit where the compressor is and you will see a white box on the right hand side. Remove the screws holding that box in and pull it out and open it up, that is your main pcb for this unit and all tests will be done from here.

Step 3:

Using a multimeter set to Ohms for measurements unplug the connector on CN70 (pnk, skyblu, org, wht, brn) and on the plug check for continuity from the white wire to the orange wire (Refrigerator Defrost Heater) and from the Brown wire to the orange wire (Freezer Defrost Heater) if either of those show open then that is your problem, replace the heater.

Step 4:

Plug CN70 back in and the plug the fridge back in. Using needle leads on your multimeter set to DC volts check for power on CN30 from Orange wire to the Brown wire (do not unplug the CN30 connector) your voltage should be from 2.3v - 4.2vdc (freezer defrost sensor). Also check the purple to the brown wire 2v - 4.2vdp (Refrigerator defrost sensor). If you are outside of that then you would need to replace that sensor.

Step 5:

If the above steps check good then you will need to put the unit into defrost and check for power at the heater. To put the unit into defrost, from the user interface panel on the front of the unit press the power freeze and power cool buttons simultaneously for 8-12 seconds until the display quits blinking. Press the the freezer button 3 times (wait 5 seconds between button pushes) to force the unit into defrost.

Step 6:

Go back to the main pcb and using your multimeter set to VAC check for power at White and Orange (refrigerator defrost heater) should be 110-120vac. Also check from brown and orange (freezer defrost heater) should be 110-120vac. If you do not have power then you have a bad main pcb.

My ge side by side refrig freezer gets on the auto defrost cycle in the freezer and then all the ice cubes in the ice maker freeze into a solid ball of ice. The ice maker does not work after that. Why does...


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.

I have a maytag side by side with water/icemaker. model msd2456dew. it has frozen up in the freezer, under the white interior paneling. we think this is what is causing the cool air to not filter into...


Checking defrost components on Maytag SideXSide refrigerators
To check the defrost circuit , unplug the refrig and 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 . Sometimes you can see the electronic board and on newer refrig's , a white box will be seen. Inside this box , is the adaptive defrost control . Disconnect the plug going to the board and on the right side of the PLUG , the far right wire is yellow , then another color , then white . Useing a small insulated wire with both ends stripped , insert one end into the yellow wire hole and the other into the white wire hole . This will bypass the adaptive board and send power directly thru the defrost bimetal ( thermostat ) AND heater to check if they are good .Plug the refrig back in . Now , wait about 3-5 min and look for a red glow at the bottom of the inside freezer panel , which will be the defrost heater or listen for sizzling which will be the frost melting and dripping onto the heater .If NO red glow , watch for a spark while removing the jumper wire you installed , from the plug . If a spark IS seen , then the heater was on and the heater AND bimetal are good . If you see the red glow , hear the sizzling , or see the spark , then the adaptive defrost board should be replaced . If no glow , sizzling or spark , then unplug the refrig and reinstall the refrig control section .
Remove the food in the freezer section enough so that the 2 screws holding the lower freezer panel on and the freezer panel , can be removed . Remove the panel . If the heater (black element at the bottom of the coils ) wires are visible , trace then to the top of the coils and disconnect . Use an ohm meter to determine if the element is good . If the element IS good , at the top of the coils , is a 1" cylinder with 2 wires , clipped onto the coils . This is the defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) . Replace this part if the element shows good . If the element shows bad , replace the element . NOTE 1 : sometimes the element and the bimetal come wired togather and the replacement part comes with a new heater and bimetal already wired togather . This would be the adviseable replacement part . However , each part can still be replaced individually . NOTE 2 : If looking at the bimetal and the top plastic " cap " looks cockeyed , replace the bimetal as moisture has gotten inside and disturbed its designed function .

JUST THIS MORNING NOTICED WATER LEAKING FROM ICE MACHINE. AFTER CHECKING THINGS OUT LOOKS LIKE NEITHER REF OR FREEZER ARE COOLING, THE FAN IS RUNNING ? PLEASE & THANKS


Hi!!

Most likely the evaporator in the back of the freezer, behind the fan, is all iced up. You need to unplug the fridge and let it defrost, you can remove the cover and use a heat gun or hair drier to make defrosting faster.

Once it is defrosted, plug unit back on and lower the freezer temp. by one click.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

My freezer keeps building up w/ice.

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.

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.

Leaking kenmore side byside Refridgerator . It seems to leakout the freezer door side. Ice builds up at the bottom or floor of the freezer.


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model when ice is gone take back cover off find drain hole and clean

Freezer is cold but fridge is warm


check door seals for freezer and fridge. If ok, check frost level in the freezer. Ice present on the back of the freezer panel (evap cover) remove evap cover and check for defrost problem by ohming out heater and defrost thermostat. If both check ok, then test the defrost timer. If this unit new and covered under wty, call a&e factory svc at 1-800-905-9505 for a free repair. consult your owners manual for wty details.

GE side-by-side freezer not freezing.


Defrost the unit until all ice melts( force defrost by unplugging the unit for several hours). Then plug and start the unit check if the blower inside is operating. If no air present in the vents check for stock up blower motor. If blower is operating and air is present in vents. Mas be the unit is out of gas.
