Question about Freezers
Would like to know how to fix my freezer. It wont defrost?
SOURCE: chest freezer
do you have voltage at the compressor? if not you have an open circuit or bad t-stat. if voltage is present and compressor is not running you have a bad start device or bad compessor. if voltage present and compressor runs you have a refrigeration issue get a new freezer.

The red light bis indicating that the temp is too high, if you can ,turn the thermostat to a colder setting, if this makes no difference, then you have a serious problem, you will have to call an engineer.

Believe it or not , your refrigerator actually goes into a defrost cycle once every six or eight hours depending on what defrost cycle timer your unit has . Each time it enters the defrost cycle , the timer will keep it there for 30 minutes or so . Then , the timer turns off the defrost mode and turns the refrigerator mode back on . If your unit is defrosting too long I would suspect that your timer needs to be replaced . It is probably getting stuck in between the defrost and normal operation switch point . As the motor stalls in this position , eddie currents buildup in the motor which causes it to get hot and the heat is allowing whatever is stalling the motor to soften up enough to allow the motor and timer un-stall and then everything starts working again . I would replace the timer first as it is easy to get to and relatively inexpensive . The timer is located in the refrigerator compartment close to the control for your temperature setting in most cases . Look up your model at Sears parts direct.com and view the diagrams to locate where the timer is using their diagrams . It is called defrost control timer or defrost timer control . It is very easy to replace in most cases.
