Question about Kenmore 65812
I have a 5 year old Kenmore refrigerator with a top freezer. The refrigerator never ran really cold and it recently has started to accumulate ice on the back wall of the freezer compartment. The model number is 106.60184001. It is something that can be fixed or should the refrigerator just be disposed of?
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.
