My kenmore trio freezer is cold, but not the refidgerator is not, and there is frost and ice where the cold air blows in from the freezer.


Since Kenmore is manufactured by several different manufactures, you should find the model number off the equipment id tag and provide that so I can give you the best advice. It will probably be located beside the vegtable tray in that unit, but not always.

You have a defrost system failure. Your defrost system is made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat and defrost timer/control board (newer units have incoorporated the timer onto the control board). You will need an ohm meter to check the heater (if it isn't open - it is good) and the thermostat (low ohm reading normal 28-38 ohms) but the timer is a different story. So you will need to rule out the heater and thermostat before replacing the timer/control board.

Ice building up in bottom of freezer, of side by side maytag


Hello there,
When you are experiencing ice build up in your refrigerator, it simply is due to a faulty defrost unit. The defrost unit is composed o9f the defrost timer, defrost thermostat and the defrost heater. Once the freezer is building up ice, the defrost unit turns on the heater, then the defrost thermostat turns off the compressor while the defrost timer, settings the routine timing for the activity.
Once a component out of the three develops a fault, the routine is stopped and then ice begins to build up in the back of the freezer or at the bottom depending on the type of refrigerator it is.
The solution to the problem is for you to have the defrost timer, defrost heater and defrost thermostat tested, that way you will be able to tell the faulty component and replace it with a new one.
To carry out the testing and replacing of these components, please read this tips, it will guide you on testing the components and replacing them.

My Everest Freezer, Model ESF1, SERIAL BSF1-0106-0024, is not cooling at all; I can hear the fan working, but inside is warm. Do I need a new control board? what do I need? please advice. Thank...


Hello there,
If your refrigerator is not cooling, but is running perfectly, you will have to test the door switch, defrost thermostat, defrost heater and the defrost timer, when you test them, replace the faulty part and it will work perfectly fine.
If that does not solve the problem, then check the door switch. Make sure you check the refrigerator if it is still having gas in the cylinder. If there is no gas the refrigerator will be working perfectly fine but will never get cool.
Hope this helps. All the best Elect_Comp

Ice forming on the back wall of refrigerator compartment It is a side by side...twenty years old


Hello there,


When you are experiencing ice build up in your refrigerator and a part of the refrigerator is not getting cold, either the fridge or freezer compartment. Then it means there is a problem with a part in the unit.


Investigate these three areas if frost and ice are forming in your freezer and your fridge is not cold enough, test Defrost Timer, Defrost Heater and the defrost thermostat when you detect where the problem is from, replace it.


Before you begin to test your defrost thermostat, defrost heater and defrost timer, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply.
Here are some tips for you to go through in order to solve the problem.

Everything in ref freezing up


1)check the temperature setting.it should be set on normal mode. 2) check if the ventilation in the fridge are blocked .there are two possibilities you will have to check 1)the defrost timer 2)the evaporator coil. How a common frost free defrost cycle works and the main parts. When the refrigerator is running ( cooling mode ) the defrost timer contacts prevents any power from getting to the defrost heater. When the defrost timer turns off the power to the compressor and fan motor(s) the power is then redirected to the defrost system. The defrost timer motor. Defrost timers:
The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.
The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.
Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.
*Some defrost timers are a constant or continuous run timer, which means when ever the refrigerator is plugged in the defrost timer is powered up and running. Some defrost timers are an accumulative run timer, which means when the refrigerator is off the defrost timer is off and not running, when the refrigerator is running the defrost timer is running. This is also sometimes called a demand defrost. The power for the defrost timer goes through the cold control first on an accumulative defrost system. The timers are often the same but will be wired differently to get the different operations.
------
the evaporator coils are located at the inner side of the freezer section.if the ice gets collected in the coil and the evaporator fan stops running then the inner system of refrigerator will get over cool and this problem happens.
--------
now to solve the issue .if to check evaporator coil is faulty or not there is a system.just unplug the unit from main power outlet then wait for 24 hours.then replug the power cord in the main power outlet.in 24 hours all the ice collected in between the coil and anywhere will get melted and then check out.if it works properly the problem was ice in coils.but if same problem then defrost timer needs replacement,you can get new timer friom

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Refrigerator Running Warm


It has a defrost problem.  3 things could be the problem.  1. Defrost thermostat  2. Defrost timer  3.  Defrost heater.  The timer is in the fridge section in the middle of the console behind the controls.  On that console you will see a little hole that will give you access to the timer gear that can be turned clockwise (slowly until it clicks) to put it into defrost.  Take the back panel off in the freezer.  Once you have put it into defrost see if the defrost heater comes on behind that panel in the freezer.  If it comes on then the timer is bad.  If the heater doesn't come on then it is most likely the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the freezer panel.  It's less likely, but it could be the defrost heater itself but it can easily be tested with an ohm meter for resistance.  Any resistance means it's ok.  Let me know if you need further assistance.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.
