Question about GE Â 17.9 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator
Help! I'm trying to help this lady who is trying to keep her food from spoiling. She has a whirlpool ed22rf that makes ice but won't keep the right side cool. I may have damaged the defrost timer while messing around with it. It split open and I put it back together. Could this be the cause of the poor cooling on the non freezer side? Also, earlier the center strip between doors got really hot.
Check condenser for dirt or dust, check back wall of freezer section for frost, if you find frost there is a defrost problem. Frost buildup on the surface of the back wall indicates that the coil inside the back wall is frozen over. Inside the back wall on the coil are heaters which the timer energizes to defrost at certain intervals. These heaters could have an open circuit, the defrost thermostat could be open, or the timer could be malfunctioning. To test the timer manually you can rotate the clutch head screw clockwise untill you hear one click. The heaters should come on and defrost for 18-22 minutes. The refrigerator should return to cooling after that time. If it does not automatically restart turn the screw once more to a second click and it should start.
