Have looked at the schematics for this cabinet and am unsure as to the location of both defrost thermostats as unclear on drawings. The purpose of the defrost thermostat is to overide the heater and end the defrost cycle, once the temperature on the evaporator is high enough (normally around 0'C). If you have two then one will probably control the heaters going off and the other may well control the fan, for coming back on. I.E. once the defrost has ended the second sensor will tell the fan when the coil is cold enough to come on, this prevents heat being pushed into the main area after a defrost cycle. If you feel competent enough then I would bypass the heater thermostat temporarily and see if the heaters kick in. The other thing to check is that you have a resistance across the two ends of the defrost heater. In my experience the heater is the most likely to fail, the sensor sometimes fail and the timers rarely fail. The age of your cabinet would suggest the heaters. Please do not leave the sensor bypassed as it performs an essential role. Hope this helps.

Guys first make sure the freezer fan is working, then remove the lower rear panel in the freezer and inspect the coil for excessive frost, if there is than use a hair dryer to thaw coil completely. If you guys then post your full model #'s i can help with figuring out why the defrost cycle isnt working.

The auto defrost timer was broken, so my refrigerator repairman replaced it. The part is about $60. The bigger expense was the labor getting to the timer, which is in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator within the plastic casing that houses the temperature control levers. He then had to remove the panels of the freezer and defrost the coils with a blow heater. It took several hours.

you cannot do this
just check the defrost heater and the bi metal, if they check good then the adaptive defrost control is bad

Fan make noise

There are 2 things in that area that can make a noise, the ice maker,and an evaporator fan,depending on the model.The fan is an easy fix if the blade is just hitting something ,but you have to be abit mechanically inclined to get to it.The icemaker has a little motor that sometimes gets stuck in the ice harvest mode,then you just have to unstick it ,also depending on what kind of fridge you have..everything else is down at the bottom,compressor,condenser,ect. In any case you probably want to call a tech unless its old,because repairs would be more than it is worth.

1. Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.
2. Take raer panel off inside freezer and check there is no ice build up which is hitting the fan
3. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.
4. Unplug the refrigerator, and listen to the back side of the fridge. The fans will immediately stop running. If the back of the fridge continues to make a noise after the fans have shut off, the sound is most likely coming from the compressor, which is located at the back of the fridge, near the bottom. If you have a compressor problem, you either have to replace the compressor or the entire refrigerator.

My whirlpool side by side refrigerator just started making this loud noise that sounds like either what an air compressor would sound like or a lawnmower. The model is ED5FHE

There are two fans running on a side by side, one is behind the back freezer panel on the side of the freezer side( if it is iced up the fan blade could be hitting ice) May be a defrost problem......
(this fan circulates air from the freezer side to the refrigerator side, as the air is pulled through the coils heat is removed)

The second fan is in the back, you have to pull out unit and remove lower back panel to listen and or look to see if condenser cooling fan is running quiet or the compressor right next to it. Could be this fan blade is hitting something or a bearing going out.......

If the compressor is making the noise you are probably not going to repair it.....

Lastly on some there is a defrost timer motor usually found by the thermostat but not always that could be making noise(least likely) May have a adaptive defrost control board, not sure.....

Hope this helps........

I've just installed a Northland 36" refrigerator and 36" freezer. The compressors seem to be noisier than the sub zeros that I have previously installed. Is there any way through adding sound insulation...

If you feel the unit is much louder than it should be, have the dealer check it. It could be one of the refrigeration lines rubbing something. This will cause noise, and potentially cause a failure. They should check it free of charge to protect their investment in not having a warranty problem in the future. (Tell them this) Otherwise, trying to add any kind of insulation etc, can disrupt the factory's design airflow and VOID your warranty.

My 10 year old amana fridge makes a noise from the fan in the freezer it sounds like something is hitting it ,but on inspection I see nothing hitting it

Look closer because ice can build up and the fan just barely hits it making the noise. If the fan blades are not hitting anything, replace the fan motor as the bearings are getting worn out.

Grrr noise that stops when doors are opened

The noise you are hearing is probably the fan blades hitting some ice build up. Un plug your refrigerator for over night and it will defrost melting the ice. If it still makes the noise after that then the fan motor is going bad, you will need to replace it soon. The reason that it stops when you open the door is because the power is cut off to the fan when you open the door.

I have a Sunsung RS21JLSG, and it's not chilling the food like it should. It's making terrible noise, sounds like a generator. Anyone know the problem?

Fan blade is hitting something probably, could be ice buildup in the freezer compartment. Open the freezer door and see if thats where your noise is coming from. If it is coming from the back of the refrigerator at the bottom could be something was drawn into the fan causing you noise.
