There is a defrost timer, defrost thermostat, and the heating element. The element is in the rear of the freezer behind the rear panel. You can use an ohmmeter to test the continuity of the heating element, the timer, and the thermostat. One of them is faulty.

Auto defrost does not work


Most likely a bad defrost thermostat and defrost heater in the freezer.
We need a model number to be more specific.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Fridge freezer


Defrost timers usually cause this type of frost build up. However it can also be caused by the defrost heater and/or heater thermostat, and these items are behind the panels therefore not easy to get to. Also before you attempt to take the panels apart make sure the refrigerator is unplugged.

You have a malfunction in the auto defrost circuit. Could be a timer, heater(s) or defrost thermostat. Defrosting it manually is only a temporary fix. Under normal conditions the system will auto defrost at least twice every 24 hours.

Freezer ices up- refrig and freezer starts to fail


you have a defrost problem.
the things to check are the defrost heater and thermal fuse in series with it. if these are ok, you probably have a problem with the main module
