How do i clean my fridge that is not self defrost and when did they stop making them


switch off at plug,open door and let the unit self defrost(do not use sharp objects or hot water/steam to hasten defrost)
when defrosted wipe out with clorine bleach,syringe drain hole(s) and wipe dry,the bleach smell will dissipate in about an hour,then close door,switch on and fill at least 1/2 full(any less and the unit will run very ineficiently)leave door closed as much as poss until temp is between +2c/+5c(the ideal temp)ensure all seals are clean and not perished.

Samsung fridge side by side srs535nw do not defrost, a technician has replaced a fuse and a sensor but the problem is still there


I am curious if the technician was able to verify the self-defrost feature was working when he left. Here is why:

Something caused the fuse to blow. The fuse is there to protect the wiring, not the device that is located after the fuse (in this case, defrost heater element). If this element is out of tolerance, it may have blown the fuse again.

Another reason for the freezer not being able to defrost is a damaged or worn door seal. If air is able to get by the seal, then you will have a continual flow of moist air into the freezer compartment, and frost will form. If enough frost forms, it may overwhelm the capacity of the defrost heater.

There is also sometimes a switch near the rear or front edge of self defrosting fridges that allow you to turn the defroster off (save power). If the tech turned this switch off (so he can service), he may have forgot to turn back on. Or switch may be defective.

Fridge don't work after defrosting session


It depends on weather or not you damaged it during the defrost. Most fridges' are self defrosting. Look at the coils behind the back cover inside the freezer. They should be covered in a light frost if the compressor is working right. Or Is the fan in the freezer running. It has to blow the cold air around the freezer and to the fridge side. It may cut off when the door is open so hold the door switch in to check. The humming in the freezer could be the fan trying to run but can't because of a defective fan or being blocked by somthing.

How to set the defrost timer on a KitchenAid Side-by-side frig?


It doesn't and shouldn't matter as all fridges with a mechanical defrost timer will run through a complete refridgeration and defrost cycle according to the manufacturer's factory design.

It doesn't have to correlate to your local time, since all defrost cycles for self-defrosting units operate based on the manufacturer's specs for how often the unit needs to go into a defrost cycle to prevent ice build up in the freezer.

Your fridge will adjust properly, once it gets cold enough and begins the specified operation and pre-determined cooling and defrost cycling.

I have a Kenmore Cold Spot fridge, freezer on top. Fridge is warm, and freezer keeps freezing up on sides and bottom. I cleaned it all out, defrosted it, and it still freezes up and fridge still won't get...


Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Freezer cold, fridge warm


Hi, You have a self defrosting problem.
Remove the rear inside freezer panel and check continuity on the defrost element and bi-metal switch.The bi-metal has to be tested cold. If there is continuity on both parts, you will need to change the defrost timer.
The most common part that goes bad is the element. I hope this helps you. Please leet me know if I can assist you further.

Fixya


I called a repair man. I was charged $150.00 . It was the box at the botom left side of the fridge,under fridge. It's fixed .It took about 5min. to replace it. I could have done it my self. Reading FixYa pointed me in the right direction. Reading postings on FixYa! What a great place to recieve info! I am not sure what the part cost, if you were to install it your self. Not a big job it has two screws that holds it in place. I had to work, was in a bind for repair man. It was worth the $150.00 to have my food back in the fridge.
