I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

I had the same problem with a top freezer. I found that the thermostat was bad by tapping on the it at the setting knob. The defrost timer was replaced first which did not help (repairman put in a timer for a Frigadair which will not work in a Roper). If one is used for a frigadair as soon as it cycles it will not work again until it is unplugged and allowed to reset. I replaced both the thermostat and the right defrost timer. It has worked great for over 2 months.

Hope this helps.

Fridge and freezer not getting cold enough. Alarm going off every day.

The two main causes are.
The defrost timer failed.
Loss of refrigerant due to a leak.

Less common, door seal failure.

First put a piece of paper in the door seal area, close the door.
Can you pull the paper out without effort??
Yes, check the door seal.
It probably needs replacing.

Is the freezer coil freezing?
Yes, check the defrost timer.
It has probably failed and needs replacing.

I have a kenmore refri/freezer with top mount freezer. the freezer compartment keeps freezing up in the back, i have to chizzle the ice out every other i called sears and they said it was probably...

Your defrost system is at fault.
Most likely the defrost terminator thermostat attached to the freezer coil.
Could possibly be a bad defrost timer.
I would have to have the exact model number to be more specific.

Refrigerator is no longer cold. Freezer is the temperature the refrigerator should be. No ice. Snow has built up at the back of the freezer. Have had repairman out three times. He changes some part...

The fault seems very much as the auto defrost of your fridge is not working fine. If you switch off your fridge for about 8 hours and switch back after all the cooling coils have cleared, your fridge must work fine. If so we have a confirmation of either the timer is faulty, the thermostat is faulty , the heater is fautly. Even if some one has tamepred and got the timer to be connected wrongly this can happen. So your will have to check each of these parts for failure or malfunction. the timer cane be tested out, the circuit to thermostat and heater can be checked. One the fridge is swtiched off for some time and put back, then it works well for few days till the coild get clogged again. So these areas must be checked and cleared. Helpful? Good day

MSD2656GEQ The coils on the freezer side ices up, then does not cool the refridgerator side

Hi, It's a common problem with no-frost refrigerators, you have a defrost problems, two scenarios. (1) hot air entering freezer/refrigerator, examples. hot summer days, regular openings, high room temperatures, hot foods and broken door gasket, leaving freezer/refrigerator doors slightly open overnight, could cause your evaporator (coils) to freeze/ice up. cases like this, unplug/disconnect your refrigerator, remove produce, clean and let it defrost, for an hour, make sure all ice melted. plug or reconnect your refrigerator let it work/ run empty for another hour, then put back your produce. sure it will work perfect for the next 3-4 days. (2) next type of defrost problem could be faulty defrost heater, defrost thermostat, you will have to open back panel on freezer side to check. check your defrost heaters, defrost thermostat and defrost timer, it's better to change defrost timer and defrost thermostat together, or change faulty ones independently. but before you change any parts, clean and defrost refrigerator first, could just be regular openings, hot days, etc. if after 3-4 days it started to ice up, then check following parts. defrost heater. defrost thermostat and defrost timer, let me know if icing occurs after 3-4 days then we can check those parts i suggested. remember to always disconnect/unplug your refrigerator, before attempting any repairs. good luck

Freezer works, Fridge doesn't

The defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment is most likely the problem. Need to turn the timer slowly clockwise until compressor stops. I should remain off for about 25 minutes. During that time the freezer should be in defrost. You may be able to open the freezer door and hear the crackling and sizzle of the defrost taking place. If the timer does not restart the refrigerator after 25 minutes the turn the timer clockwise again until the compressor restarts. Number 6 in photo below is the defrost timer. The replacement timer part number is 482493. Here is a photo. Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer is "frosting over...refrig part not cooling????

it sounds like the defrost system is not operating and getting rid of the frost. the common fault is that the defrost heater has gone, or the heater cut out has gone or the defrost timer is faulty. how is the door seal in the area- that can cause frosting with warm air ingress.

  • 4 hours is not enough to defrost it. also it will just frost back up if it has a bad heater, defrost timer or thermal switch.
 it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermal switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
