Danby DFF282WDB stopped cooling - light comes on - any troubleshooting we can do?


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are locked into the defrost mode. This is when every 8-10 hours your unit will shut down for 20-30 minutes and your defrost heater comes on and defrost your freezer cooling (Evaporator) Coil. During this cycle everything shuts down except for the light.

Your controls are usually located on the top of your fresh food section. On the bottom of your controls, near the front, left hand side there is a round hole. This is where your defrost timer is located.

With a large flat head screw driver turn clockwise. You will hear a clicking sound. Turn slowly one click a time until your unit turns on. This unit will have to be replaced. Until it is replace manually turn it off every 10 hours for 20 minutes.

Note the round stub on the left.

Our Viking professional vcbb363rss freezer is icing up because auto defrost seems to have quit, including the freezer fan. Everyone seems to agree that it's a control board. Do where are they located?

More probable is the the defrost sensor. It is located in the evaporator section in the freezer section of the refrigerator. It will be clamped on the refrigerant return line to the compressor. The sensor closes on temperature decrease below 5 degrees and opens during the normal defrost cycle at least 2 times a day. If the sensor does not close the refrigerator stops defrosting and ice will accumulate as yours seems to be doing. Take your model number to and find the evaporator or controls section and find your sensor. You may need to make a splice to install your new sensor to the electrical wire. some just have push on pull off connections and other have to be spliced. You may have to use a hot air gun like a hair dryer to defrost the evaporator panel to come loose to remove panel. the panels typically have several screws holding them in place and are generally easy to removel. The side normally have gaskets that need to be removed carefully with damage to be reinstalled after sensor replacement.
Hope this helps.

My Hotpoint refrigerator model csx20easm is not defrosting. I have replaced the defrost heater with thermosate and thecycle timer, but still not defrosting. What could be the problem?

Try replacing the defrost termination control, it is a small disk shaped sensor with two wires coming out of it. It is located on the outlet end of the evaporator, usually on the suction line. Hope this helps, good luck.

Where is locate the defrost sensor?

It is usually on the evaporator. Post a comment with the model number and brand, and I can tell you more. some refrigerators don't have a sensor for the defrost. They would have a clock style timer that tells it when to defrost.

Locate defrost sensor

Remove all of the racks and drawer from the freezer, take the back wall off from the inside of the freezer, defrost limiter/thermostat will be attached to the evaporator near the top, it will be a metal cylinder with two wires coming out of it. It opens on warm and closes on cold

Top refrigerator section will not cool

Check the evaporator fan , freezer must have a fan to avoid ice formation, if evaporator does not work, thermic sensor jams up and freezer stop working. The fan is located behind the panel in the freezer.

Check the back of your freezer, If there is frost or ice, then the unit is not defrosting.
This is often caused by problems with evaporator system.
Sometimes you also need to check the defrost timer, located at the top of the FFC on the Top freezer.
Check also the defrost thermostat, which is on the evaporator inside the freezer.
If it isnt defrosting, change both.
