It definately sounds as though the motor in the timer assembly is dying, or the gears in the assembly are wearing down to the point that the gears can't turn the way they're supposed to. Replace the timer.
The timer will advance whenever the cold control is on. (when the compressor is running, or the timer has advanced into a defrost cycle) When the refrig is cold enough (and the timer has not advanced into defrost) the timer will not be advancing. A typical defrost timer will count up 8 hours of compressor run time before going into a 30 minute defrost cycle. (the run time and defrost time can vary greatly from model to model)
as for high tempreture do u mean it is above the 0 degree normal that its supposed to be set to your freezer goes into a defrost cycel once every 6-8 hours.if your tempreture is rising on the other hand there are a couple things for you to check make sure the fan inside the freezer compartment is running.the following things you will need a meter for to measure the resistance while the power is off check the t-stat,heater to make sure there is continuity if you have continuity in both of these then you would need to check the defrost timer If you are unable to do these tests i strongly suggest you call a technician
Dirty condenser, condenser fan motor is not running, freezer overpacked, bad thermostat, evaporator ice build up and it blocks the air flow. evaporator fan motor is not running or sealed system problem.
Sounds like the overload/relay plugged onto the compressor is bad . Easily replaceable . Pt # 12002782 . Remove the back panel and disconnect from electrical outlet . On the compressor itself , this piece had 3 wires going to it .
It will usually take 24 hours for the fridge/freezer to adjust fully to the temperature settings.
It is also possible that the defrost timer cycle was going into or just coming out of the defrost cycle, thus it could have delayed the start of the cooling cycle, so give it a little time to determine if the freezer is working.
If, not freezing after 24 hours, let us know and we'll go from there.
It takes longer for an empty freezer to get and hold temperatures, so it is always a good idea to have the freezer loaded with bread (thirft store bargains are cheap) or jugs of 3/4 full water (water takes longer to freeze than bread thou).
All frost-free refrigerator-freezers have a thing in the system called
a Defrost Timer. The thing is a little clock of sorts that tracks
accumulated running time. Every 8 hours of run time the thing cycles
through a defrost cycle. The defrost cycle is necessitated by the
humidity that forms ice crystals on the freezing coils, if the frost is
not eradicated it can build up to the point where no air flows over the
coils to chill the inside of the box. The Defrost timer in all boxes
fails eventually from old age. When that happens, the coils frost over
until they become pretty much just a solid block of ice. Your case may however be the exception, as it seems likely that the timer quit during a defrost cycle. Most timers
are located on the front of the machine, behind that removable grille
under the door. The timer has a round hollow shaft through it, and can
be turned with a screwdriver. If the compressor is not running, give the
shaft a slow twist until a click is heard. The compressor should start. If it does, check the fridge in 12 hours to make sure it is not stopped again. Sometimes the nudge will make the timer run for a
while. You will need to get a replacement timer. If that doesn't make it take off you should call a servicer.
The fan stops during the whole defrost cycle, there is a bi metal control that determines the length of time the heater stays on. This could be the problem, if the heater stays on for the time that is allowed by the defrost timer it will get too warm in the freezer. the bi metal is located on the evaporator.
By any chance is the ticking sound coming from the defrost timer, down in the freezer compartment? If the timer isn't advancing, either there won't be any automatic defrosting and the evaporator will turn into an iceberg or (if the timer gets stuck in permanent defrost) the compressor won't come on.
Defrost timers have a knob (sort of) that you can turn with a screwdriver (in one direction only). That allows you to move the timer in and out of defrost mode for troubleshooting. You can also mark the knob with a Sharpie and watch for the mark to move. These timers are supposed to make a revolution in 6 or 8 hours, depending on the model.The defrost part of the cycle usually lasts less than half an hour.
The defrost timer isn't the only part that can fail and prevent defrosting, but it's the only one likely to tick.
