On your frigidaire model, look on the front left on the bottom. for some info on your frig, see:

ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Anderson/95310918.pdf

page 10 item 23. hope this helps.

On the maytag defrost timer: it's probably beside the cold control in the plastic housing on the ceiling of the FF section.

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

I can't find the wiring diagram for my whirlpool refridgerator.... MOD.#ET19RKXFN01 SER.#EG3222178. Can you please help. I need to change the defrost timer.....Thanks


I will try to locate a wiring diagram for your model ET19RKXFN01 but to change the defrost timer you will only need to know its location. Here is a link to the repair parts=> ET19RKXFN01_Repair_Parts_List
Go to page 5 of the repair parts list and you will see item number 4 Then on page 6 of the parts list you will see the timer part number beside the item 4. That is your defrost timer part number 2193084 Defrost Timer

Your refrigerator is an older model and may have the wiring digram in a packet behind the kick plate in the front near floor. Changing the defrost timer will not require use of a wiring diagram. Simply remove the old timer and replace the new defrost timer by plugging it into the wiring harness. The defrost timer can be found behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment where the controls are located above the top shelf. If you have questions just let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Fridge stopped cooling but freezer works what could it be


Most likely the=> WR09X10041 Defrost Timer
8_16_2012_6_32_05_pm.jpg

found inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel. Click HERE for the location. Part location number 648 is the defrost timer. Location number 618 is the=> WR51X10038 Defrost Heater Assembly
8_16_2012_6_39_15_pm.jpg
If you change the defrost heater then you should also change the WR50X10071 Defrost Thermostat
8_16_2012_6_44_55_pm.jpg


and that is the location number 620 found HERE First I want you to try turning the defrost timer slowly clockwise until compressor and fans stop. Leave like this up to about 30 minutes. You should hear crackling and sizzle noise inside the freezer. If after 30 minutes the compressor and fans do not restart this will indicate the defrost timer and that part will need replaced. Try that first and let me know what happens. I will be here to answer questions if you like, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer at 32 degrees, fan running ,fridge cool


The evaporator coils behind the rear cover inside the freezer are probably iced over because of defrost system failure. Defrost system consists of defrost heater, defrost thermostat and defrost timer(or motherboard in newer models.)

Frigidare refrigerator FRS26ZTH FREEZER FREEZING UP/FRIG NOT COOL


also check defrost timer,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.
