Question about Frigidaire FRS26KR4A Side by Side Refrigerator
I have been reading the suggestions on this topic already and have changed the defrost therm, but unsure how to check the defrost heater. I have just installed the therm so I have to wait until tomorrow to see if the problem is fixed. I have been defrosting the coils for 4 days with a hair dryer, and the freezer would work fine. Then in 24 hours the frost would build back up. I just read the tip on how to manually start the defrost with the light switch, but I had already changed the therm. and the coils were defrosting due to the heat in the house.
Would the heater turn red? I don't have a meter to check the resistance, I just don't want to buy a heater and I need a timer.
The model number is FRS26KR4DW6 we have only had it for 3 years.
You can bypass the thermo and manually put it in defrost. the heaters will get hot fast so don't leave them on more than a few minutes
if you want to you can take off the heater(s) and look at them to see if they look burnt out, sometimes you can see the bad spot.
