I have an Amana bottom freezer, model BX20S5E that is not cooling properly in either compartment. I have replaced both the defrost thermostat and defrost timer (new). Still no change... what I do notice is that around the defrost timer there is a ball of ice. The ice doesn't extend over the fins at all, just around the thermostat. I have unthawed with a blow dryer and turned on again but the ice returns. All the fans are working properly and the compressor seems to be running. During the defrost

I have a small refrigeratio model # FRTO45GM It would not turn on so I found the switch was bad, then I replaced it and found that the defrost timer was in defrost mode. I got it out and the fan came on. I checked the compressor overload and it showed continuity. I omed out the compressor and it did show it was good. Any suggestions?
Kenmore model# 253.54362409 frig. when it is turned (after being off) it will start fine. Once it reaches temp it shuts off, when it goes to restart it won't., the capacitor has been replaced, so has the defrost timer, and the temp sensor for the defrost. The defrost heater has been checked and shows resistance of 29 ohms.
If it cools then quits, the problem could be with the compressor start capacitor or the power board. ...

Refrigerator part not cooling, freezer is fine Amana TXI18JW (top freezer model)

I have an OLD Kenmore Coldspot top mounted refriderator, model number 106.8679311. It started making noises approximately 12 hours apart and we suspected it's the defrost timer. I purchased a replacement timer. The first part of the directions to replace the timer say to determine which defrost cycle I have and offers three different locations to connect the black wire on the new timer. My problem is, I have no schematic to look at to determine this. The wires on the old timer are the follo

I have a Kenmore side by side model #106.50517001. It started defrosting and not coming back on at odd times, I thought that it was probably the defrost timer, you could unplug the fridge, plug it back in and it would start working but when you turned the timer screw, it would go off then not come back on. I replaced the timer and it still wasn't working. Out of frustration I slapped the control panel cover and it came on. What else inside there do I need to replace?

My Amana refrigerator defrost timer is supposed to cycle every eight hours. Instead it takes about 14 hours to cycle around back to the defrost mode. The defrost mode does last for the proper 20 minutes. This is a brand new defrost timer which I bought to replace the old one, which was only three years old. The old one did the same thing which made me believe it was broken.

GE model #GSS201EMBWW is not defrosting, checked defrost heater and it was burned out. Replaced with new 2 heater design and now it burns all the time, which is most likely what burnt the other 1 out. Looking at forums it says this model does not have a defrost timer, instead has mother board that controls the defrost. I would think that if the mother board was bad it wouldn't heat at all. Any info you have would be helpful
This is how the defrost works . I have NEVER found a defrost problem associated with a bad main control board since these computerized GE's came out in 2000 . Lots of thermistor problems , lying to the board , causing different problems . \015\ ...

I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator model BQ20RBL that builds up ice on the back wall of the freezer. There is no cold air entering the refrigerator upper box unless I also open the freezer door. The defrost timer (behind the front grill) does turn, and I have checked the contacts: OK. I have manually turned the defrost timer switch to 'defrost' but the frost does not go away.
Two weeks ago, when this problem first occurred, I emptied the freezer and refrigerator, and let it thaw. T

I have a ten year old KitchenAid Supra side-by-side refrigerator, model #KSSS4QDK05. The freezer appears to periodically get stuck in defrost and not come back out. One relay switch and two defrost timers have been replaced and same behavior. If I advance the timer a full cycle, the freezer restarts. Repair guy is convinced its another fault timer. Are we barking up the right tree here or could this be an electrical problem, a thermostat issue or some other issue?
Before i replaced the defrost timer again i would replace the defrost termonator . pt # 2000528 / this could cause the problem and the other is the main board pt 4288656 . both of these could cause this the bi metal t ...

My Amana ABB2524HEW quit defrosting. I have manually defrosted the unit and unit is cooling fine. I can manually defrost ok with the digital control. I did Service Test 1 and the defrost thermostat showed open. I am thinking it being open would not allow defrost heater to come on and if it was shorted the defrost heater would be on all the time? I'm thinking the defrost thermostat needs to be replaced.

My maytag side by side model mzd2752gr is leaking water on the floor from the freezer. This model does not have a drain pan. I am sure the drain port in the back of the freezer is not draining, but could it be a problem with the evaporator system that using compressed air to blow through the drain port may cause damage somewhere. One week ago, I replaced the defrost timer and defrost thermostat/heating element due to the freezer freezing up and the refrigerator not cooling. This water leaking pr

I have a three year old GE Profile refrigerator (Model PSF26NGTD BB) that is a bit warmer that usual. There is quite a bit of frost in the freezer so I think I have frost free failure.

(2) How do I gain access to these components (i.e. through the back of the machine, through the freezer, etc)? I am asking the second question because going through the freez

13 yr old Whirlpool Side by Side refridgerator model ED25PDQ DW03 quits cooling occasionally..
Sometimes for unknown reason... the cooling stops. I had Sears out.. either bad defrost timer or ? I replaced the defrost timer... still stops. I guess it might be the thermostat control which is located inside the top front chassis.
If I pound next to the thermostat panel area... the compressor starts up and works again... until it quits maybe every other day.
You can bypass the defrost thermostat the next time it stops working to see if that is the problem. Connect the two wires to each other instead of the thermostat.The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer wil ...
