The above URL will take you to an exploded view of the controls. Look at number 23 which will be located behind toe plate below door on the left side. That is the defrost timer. Rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear a loud click. That is the defrost timer starting the defrost. If the unit restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place you problem is most likely the defrost thermostat.

If your model is the=> PSC23NGN and the refrigerator is not defrosting the problem is most likely the Defrost Heater and Defrost Thermostat that need replaced. The heater is item location 230 and the defrost thermostat is item location 240 in this photo=> HERE
The part numbers for the Defrost Heater are WR51X10055 Defrost Heater Assembly The part number for the Defrost Thermostat WR50X10028 Defrost Thermostat

Thanks for providing your model number! If other people would do the same they could get help to solve their refrigerator or other appliance problem. Try turning the timer dial clockwise slowly with a flat head screw driver. The location of the timer in your model refrigerator is located inside the control panel inside the fresh food section. Click HERE to see part location number 6 That is the defrost timer=> 482493 Defrost Timer Sometimes there is a round hole on the outside of the control panel where you can place the screw driver and sometimes that hose is covered by a plastic plug. Anyway try turning the timer slow clockwise until fans and compressor stop. Leave the refrigerator off for up to 35 minutes and if it does not restart on it's own then simply turn the timer again slowly until it does restart. If the refrigerator defrost while you have forced defrost this way and timer will not restart refrigerator again on it's own then replacing the timer will be the correct part to replace. If turning the timer does not help in getting defrost we will need to remove items in the freezer to a safe location so you can see what is happening behind the rear wall of the freezer. Item location 33 in the photo HERE is the 2323197 Defrost Heater Assembly Testing the defrost heater can be explained in the video above. Part location number 35 is the=> 2321799 Defrost Thermostat You can test this part but I always change if I need to remover the rear panel of the freezer. I just think it is a good idea. I am here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Compressor and fan stop working


There is a possibility that the defrost timer turned the compressor and fans off and stuck in the defrost lobe of the defrost timer. I want you to try turning the defrost timer slowly clockwise. The defrost timer is in location 257 behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. Here is a photo of the parts location HERE
If doing this causes the refrigerator to work again then replace the=> WR9X489 Defrost Timer

If this does not work I want you to try something else so let me know what happens Thanks

Freezer is not deforsting


If your model you listed is a TFX27PRBWW it will have a defrost timer located in the fresh food compartment and behind the controls. It's location is 257 in this photo HERE I would like you to turn the timer clockwise slowly until youi hear the compressor and fans stop. This should put the refrigerator into defrost if the defrost heater is still working. Did you hear any crackling or sizzle when place into defrost this way? Wait up to 35 minutes for the timer to come out of defrost and it should restart the refrigerator compressor and fans. If it does not come on automatically then simply turn the timer slowly clockwise again until they do restart. If you need to turn timer again to start refrigerator you will need to replace the timer=> WR9X489 Defrost Timer
2_1_2013_8_42_52_pm.jpg

If the defrost timer is not the problem then we move to the freezer side, remove the rear panel of freezer and defrost the frost covering the evaporator as in this photo HERE The model TFX27PRBWW takes a=> WR51X10055 Defrost Heater Assembly
2_1_2013_8_53_33_pm.jpg

and the defrost thermostat=> WR50X122 Defrost Thermostat
2_1_2013_9_08_25_pm.jpg

The defrost heater is location 230 and the defrost thermostat is location 24 in this photo HERE Instructions in testing these parts are located on the parts pages I listed above. Please let me know if the model number is different than the one above your post so I may help you better, Thanks Sea Breeze

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
11_30_2012_6_26_54_am.jpg


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

Refrigerator freezing even when you turn it down


Your refrigerator is freezing due to the unit most likely haveing a defrost issue. This is usually caused by the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or adaptive control having a fault condition. If you remove the rear panel in the rear of the freezer it will give you access to the evaporator coil. Located to one of the side usually clipped onto one of the copper lines you will see a small circular round sensor with two wires coming from it. Unplug the machine and defrost with a hair dryer any ice build up on the evaporator coil. If you have a multimeter you can perform a ohms test to assure that the thermostat is working properly. A defrost thermostat usually has an ohms reading of at least .50 ohms or higher. Located under the evaporator coil is the defrost heater. If you unplug both sides of the heater you can also perform a ohms test with a multimeter which would usually read around 21 ohms or higher. Most often this issue is caused due to the defrost thermostat due to this part being manufactured poorly on most all machines. If you find that you have a positive ohms reading on both these mentioned parts. You would then look at the defrost timer or adaptive control as the part causing the fault condition. I will await your reply and to you testing these first two parts before further posting how to test the defrost timer.
I await your reply,
Thank you,
Rick

Defrost is stuck in one all time it not cooling or freezing


A DEFROST TIMER is a cycling device, it times the frequency and duration that the defrost heater coils melt the ice that builds up around the evaporator coils. If ice is allowed to build up, air will not be able to freely flow past them - resulting in reduced efficiency and sometimes a drastic warming of the cooling unit.

zjlimited_1583.jpg

Most of the time, the defrost timer is in the cooling mode, allowing the compressor to activate when the thermostat signals it to. The remaining part of the cycle (usually less than 30 minutes)the timer is in defrost mode. In this mode, it signals the defrost heaters to melt the ice build up on the coils. This defrost action is limited by the defrost thermostat. If your DETROST TIMER go to bad, one symptom would be if your refrigerator is not cooling. Although there are many causes of this symptom, A stuck defrost timer can be one of them. The timer can get stuck in cooling (compressor activated) or defrost mode (defrost heaters activated) for usually two reasons:
- The timer motor can fail for one.
- The gears can also become locked up.

No matter what the reason is or which mode the defrost timer gets stuck in, the refrigerator can stop cooling. When the refrigerator is stuck in defrost mode, the compressor no longer comes on to cool the unit. If the timer gets stuck in cooling mode, the evaporator coils never get a chance to defrost, causing ice build-up to the point where there is a complete blockage of airflow past the coils.

The defrost timer can also cause the refrigerator to stop cooling due to failure of the internal switch which activates either the compressor or heater coils. Finally, when doing any repair on a refrigerator, check the condenser coils for dust buildup and clean accordingly.

According woth yur brand and model, look the part replacement in this link: partselect.com/refrigerator+test-defrost-timer+repair.

Good luck.

I am trying to respond to the defrost refrigerator problem but can't tell how to do so. The model is 106.70203990 Kenmore Elite Coldspot. I need to know how to troubleshoot the defrost timer and/or...


the defrost timer should be in the center hood, hanging from the refer section,
if you look up you should see the bottom of the timer
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelsearch_model.aspx?image=1&part_id=3110896&model_id=410075&pkw_=timer&x=14&y=16
it will look like this
you can turn it with a flat head
turn it till it till it clicks and the machine shuts off
it should turn the machine on in 20 mins or so
if it does its probaly good
the defrost heater is behind the back wall
its looks like a straight element , they best way to test this is to ohm it out,
no continuity, its no good
next while your behind the wall
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelsearch_model.aspx?image=1&part_id=3135377&model_id=410075&pkw_=thermostat
look for this part its your defrost tstat
make sure it looks just like the picture and not popped
sometimes this will actually pop open and be obviously bad
