Behind the freezer panel at the top usually the right side but sometimes the left , snapped on to the aluminum tube, It's round a little bigger than a quarter, about an inch thick and has 2 wires usually brown and pink.It may be covered in ice if it is not functioning, So you may need a hair dryer to find it.

Where is defrost timer location on fridgedaire mod # ED25DQXVN00


Your mechanical defrost clock timer is located in the control panel where the rotary knobs are for the ED25 model given which is a Whirlpool SxS, For the Frigidaire Mod FRS, your defrost control will most likely be located in the long housing running down the center wall (front to back) of the fridge near the outlet vent, this is an electronic adaptive defrost control.

I can't find the wiring diagram for my whirlpool refridgerator.... MOD.#ET19RKXFN01 SER.#EG3222178. Can you please help. I need to change the defrost timer.....Thanks


I will try to locate a wiring diagram for your model ET19RKXFN01 but to change the defrost timer you will only need to know its location. Here is a link to the repair parts=> ET19RKXFN01_Repair_Parts_List
Go to page 5 of the repair parts list and you will see item number 4 Then on page 6 of the parts list you will see the timer part number beside the item 4. That is your defrost timer part number 2193084 Defrost Timer

Your refrigerator is an older model and may have the wiring digram in a packet behind the kick plate in the front near floor. Changing the defrost timer will not require use of a wiring diagram. Simply remove the old timer and replace the new defrost timer by plugging it into the wiring harness. The defrost timer can be found behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment where the controls are located above the top shelf. If you have questions just let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

I need to find the defrost timer on my whirlpool ed25dqxyn02


Your model does not have a defrost timer, but a control board. The board is located on the back of the fridge behind an access panel.

Refrigerator and freezer not working


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

My ED5HHAXVQ02 refrigerator is not cooling. However the freezer is overfreezing and frost is building up.


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.

Freezer frosts up and then the refer doesn't get cold air. I have completely defrosted it twice. Model # ED25DSXDN03


You have either a bad defrost heater,defrost thermostat or defrost timer.
The defrost timer is located in the control panel box in the fresh food section. The heater and thermostat are in the freezer section behind the rear panel.
On this brand it is usually the defrost timer.

Defrost timer


most newer refers have the timer located somewhere near the main controls. Usually in the console near the refrigerator thermostat. older models could be behind the kick plate on the bottom or even on some in the back near the compressor. If it's a new electronic model it may not have a timer.
