Question about Refrigerators
Usually if this is occurring then there is one of two problems, either low refrigerant or
a problem in the defrost circuit. The most common problem I have come across is
failure of the defrost termination thermostat. It is located behind the panel in the freezer
compartment and clips onto the refrigerant line It has two leads coming to it.
A lot of people recommend changing the defrost timer but I have only seen a couple
fail in ten years. The model and serial number you will need is located in the fresh food
compartment on the left. The replacement comes with wire nuts and heat shrink tubing.
You can also test the defrost by locating the hole under the temp control in the fresh
food compartment which doesn't
seem to serve a purpose, this is where you can advance the timer manually with a
screwdriver and listen or watch for the defrost element in the freezer to come on. Use
caution as this heating element gets very hot and is energized. Make sure to unplug
fridge before replacing any components.
