My Jenn Air side by side I think has two problems. I have problems with the defrosting unit in the freezer area not working. I have temporarily been manually defrosting it. About a week ago the refrigerator just stopped working all together. I removed everything and turned the settings to off. Afew days later I went in the refrigerator to let it air out and turned the settings back to normal from the off position. The next day the refrigerator is now working. What's up with this

GE Monogram ZIS36 Side by Side refrigerator built-in about 15 years old. Defrost problem.
Freezing compartment has ice running down the sides. Both refrigerator and freezer work fine. I have cleared the drain tube of debris and cleaned condenser. Problem persists.
Do I replace:

My refrigerator does not defrost. I have replaced the defrost heater and the thermostat but it still does not defrost. I have been told there is no defrost timer on my refrigerator.

Water is forming on bottom of refrigerator interior. I do not see any water in the drain pan below the refrigerator. There is no drain in this area below the two crisper bins.
There was large amounts of ice in the rear of the freezer. I used a hair dryer to defrost it and removed the excess water.
I do not know if the defrost timer is working correctly or if the drain line is plugged or if the defrost heater in the freezer is working.

Last spring, it would not defrost and of course the refrigerator was warm.
I replaced the Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC)and that solved the problem. This week, the defrost problem returned. I defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer and reassembled and turned the freezer and slid the freezer and refrigerator controls back to the middle.
The compressor did not turn back on. (It was working before I defrosted.)I pulled the ADC to check for trouble cod

I have a Maytag MTF2455ER refrigerator and its not working right. The freezer has frost on the back wall (blocking bottom vents), from the bottom about half way up, but otherwise works fine. The refrigerator section is at 56 degrees and my food is going bad rapidly. I'd like some help in debugging and repairing this. What I've read so far points to the defrost timer or defrost heater. Do you agree? How do I get at these (or other parts) for testing?
Hi Jake, I am Kelly and welcome to FixYa. Lets get a "manual defrost" going with a hand held blow dryer or... a fan for about 2 hours. The hand held blow dryer method is faster but... still takes longer than you would think \015\012\01 ...

I work in a medical office and our company just purchased an LG Model # LFC20740SW to accomadate more room to hold our vaccines. Well are ranges for refrigerator and freezer have to be within certain temps for the specifications of the vaccines. The refrigerator and freezer work great, but when it goes into defrost mode it warms up to much and this is a concern that we have to address immediately. So if you could give me any advice or give me a # to someone that can maybe overide the defrost cyc
You need not worry about the defrost cycle. It just warms the external walls of the refrigirator and in the interior it will be about 20-25°C which i guess will be good enough to store vaccines. There is a work around to remove the deffro ...

I have a Whirlpool/Kenmore Model 106.8607312 and the refrigerator section is not cooling but the freezer section is working. There is a lot of ice in the freezer section so i'm guessing the defrosting is not working. When i opened the freezer section to uncover the back it was covered in ice. I unplugged everything and let it melt. However i can't find the defrost timer to test if it works. I read somewhere that it may be be part of the ice maker. Can you help me find the defrost timer?
We ll see how u need to check the defrost timer....Before testing the defrost timer, unplug the freezer to avoid an electrical shock hazard.A mechanical defrost timer controls the defrost cycle of the appliance. In older models, the timer ...

Our refrigerator (Samsung) is only about 3-4 yrs. old. The refrigerator has been acting up and now the freezer isn't working. My husband has pulled the refrigerator out and defrosted behind the drawers where the ice is accumulating and it seems to work for a while. The freezer is now not cooling. He has unplugged it and then plugs it back in and it will work for a few hours, but then heats up to 40 or 50 degrees again.
Maybe it's your motor that has worn away? ...
