Question about Kenmore 24.8 cu. ft. TRIO Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Thanks very much for your reply!
So I just had my son check and 'yes' there is frost on the back of the freezer. So it looks like your suspicion is correct.
With that said, what do I do now? I presume I need to clean the frost off of the back, but otherwise how do 'de-frost' the freezer coil? Also, how do I access the freezer coil.
Guess the next question is once I 'de-frost' how do I prevent from happening again. Are there parts that should be replaced or do I simply need to do a better job of maintaining.
Thanks very much for your help.
Cleaning the frost off the back is only scratching the surface of the problem. The back wall of the freezer section must be removed to expose the real point of the problem. Behind the back wall there are two main items, the heaters and a defrost termination switch. To check the heaters unplug the connections at each end and read them with an Ohm meter. If no reading the circuit is open and the heater is bad. Some heaters are of the glass tube radiant type and some are of the cal rod type. Most modern refrigerator have gone to the radiant type of heaters. By simple observation you can sometimes see the point of break in the heater as a burnt spot. If the heaters are open they must be replaced.
