Frigidare refrigerator model#frt17g4bwd sealed system leak warranty


It is possible that the refrigerator is unable to defrost or for the water from defrost has frozen and blocked the drain inside the back of your freezer. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the freezer panel listed as location number 10 in photo HERE
Once you remove the rear panel I want you to tell me what you see. Is the drain opening frozen over?
You may need a=> 242044007 Defrost Heater
1_4_2013_4_20_12_pm.jpg

depending on what you see behind the freezer rear panel. Are all the coils frosted over? Also I need you to turn the defrost timer inside the fresh food section and listed as location number 23 in this photo HERE
By turning the timer clockwise slowly until compressor and fans stop is putting your refrigerator into defrost. Leave it in defrost up to 30 minutes and if the defrost timer does not turn compressor and fans simply turn again slowly to start again. If you need to turn timer after 30 minutes the timer will need to be replaced. The part number for the timer is=> 215846602 Defrost Timer

How to Replace a Defrost Timer in a refrigerator?


What is timer?
Timer is a small motorized unit that controls the function of defrosts cycle in a refrigerator. The defrost timer tells the refrigerator when to cool and when to defrost any ice frost collected on/in the evaporator coil.
Now the procedure to replace the timer is as follows:--
1) First of all for proper safety please unplug the unit from power outlet.
2) Then to locate the timer. It is located behind the refrigerator beside the compressor of the refrigerator. You will have to remove the metal kick plate on the bottom of the refrigerator. In older models refrigerator it is built into the icemaker unit.
3) In some models timer is fitted by the screws on the side wall of the refrigerator unit. so if screws are seen remove the screws holding the timer to the refrigerator wall.
4) Then slowly/carefully remove the timer out of the unit so you can disconnect the wiring from the connectors. For easy access of connectors try wiggling the connectors back and forth it will be disconnected.
5) Before removing the connectors please take a note of which connector was connected where and in what position.
6) Then take a new timer and plug the connectors in same position and at same spot in the new timer.
7) The refit the screws if you removed while removing the old defrost timer, replace the kick plate cover and plug in refrigerator and check out.
This will help. Thanks.

I WANT TO BYPASS THE DEFROST MODE IN MODEL 8145-20


Unsure what you are trying to do.
Open following link to see how this timer works and how to wire it.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#8145

If you want to by-pass defrost cycle, remove trippers from dial and timer will not enter defrost state.
Or remove wire that is connected to terminal 3.

Replacing defrost timer,needs manuel


I check there is no free manual for Kenmore, I find. Better follow these steps to replace defrost timer.

Unplug the refrigerator. Locate the defrost timer. The timershould have four metal terminals coming from the bottom of the unit. It isusually situated behind the refrigerator, in the refrigerator's control panel,the freezer compartment toward the front of the cabinet or behind a metal kickplate on the bottom of the refrigerator. Older Kenmore models may have it builtinto the ice maker. Remove the defrost timer by takingoff the kick plate (if there is one) and removing any screws attaching it tothe refrigerator or freezer. Carefully pull the timer out from the wall of theunit so you can disconnect the wiring from the connectors. If removal isdifficult, try wiggling the connectors back and forth to help loosen them andpull on them firmly. Plug the wire connectors into thenew defrost timer and replace the timer in the refrigerator. Secure with screws, replace coverand plug in refrigerator.
Thanks and helpful?

Frigidaire PLHS269ZDB9 is not getting cold enough to freeze or make ice. I took off the panel , there is an ice block on the thermostat to the evaporator. trying to defrost.


When the refrigerator is running ( cooling mode ) the defrost timer contacts prevents any power from getting to the defrost heater. When the defrost timer turns off the power to the compressor and fan motor(s) the power is then redirected to the defrost system. The defrost timer motor


Defrost thermostat:
During a defrost cycle, the defrost heater causes the metal alloy in the switch to warm and as it does it curls back and breaks the circuit. As the metal cools, it makes a closed circuit again. A defective thermostat can prevent the defrost heater from coming on or allow it to overheat which could result in heat damage or fire.
The defrost thermostat is located near the defrost heater and is wired in series. It is usually located at the back of a side by side freezer, behind the freezer back wall of a top freezer or under the floor. It will be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, icemaker and the inside rear or bottom panel of the freezer. At room temperature the defrost thermostat is an open circuit ( no continuity ) and when cooled down the defrost thermostat closes the circuit ( has full continuity ) to allow the defrost heater to come on.



Defrost timers:
The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.
The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.

Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.

*Some defrost timers are a constant or continuous run timer, which means when ever the refrigerator is plugged in the defrost timer is powered up and running. Some defrost timers are an accumulative run timer, which means when the refrigerator is off the defrost timer is off and not running, when the refrigerator is running the defrost timer is running. This is also sometimes called a demand defrost. The power for the defrost timer goes through the cold control first on an accumulative defrost system. The timers are often the same but will be wired differently to get the different operations.



Defrost heater:

Test the heating element for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. Because of the number of different elements we cannot tell what your reading should be, but we can be certain of what it shouldn't be. If the reading is zero or infinity the heating element is definitely bad and should be replaced. Proper power ( careful!! ) to the heating element ( 110-120 volts AC ) and the defrost heater does not come on = bad defrost heater.

Some newer refrigerators have been using an electronic board instead of an mechanical defrost timer. The adaptive defrost control does the same job as the defrost timer ( shuts off the refrigerator cooling items and redirects the power to the defrost heater for the defrosting cycle, then redirects the power to the compressor and fans to come back on when the defrost cycle is over ). This adaptive defrost system is a bit different when testing, normally speaking if the defrost heater and defrost thermostat ohm ok, we replace the adaptive defrost board.

Freezer working fridge not


There are screws around the edge to remove it. It's probably iced up due to defrost system failure. How to check everything http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

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.
