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.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator GSS22JEMB BB. The defroster heater was replaced. How do I know if the defroster is working properly. Can I manually manually make the fridge go into defrost mode? Also when I open the door, is the motor on the freezer side suppose to stop running? There is a valve on the top of the fridge, Is there suppose to be a stream of cold air comming out? It is currently having very little flow.
To go into defrost manually : Remove the 10"X13" panel from the back of the fridge . You will see a plug with 3 larger wires going to it . Unplug this plug ( UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR FIRST ) . The blue receptical will look like this wire#1,wire#2, spa ...

My 420 Westinghouse virtuoso fridge/freezer Model BJ423T-R was blocked by ice and was not cooling in the fridge part. After turning it off and manually defrosting it began cooling again. How frequently will I have to defrost it manually?
Depending on the usage such as how often the door is opened and how long it stays open it will run for between 1 and 2 weeks before the ice blocks the evaporator enough to block the air circulation. I can't tell for sure but you may have an auto defr ...

Thermostat schematic? My 440BL will run for a few days, defrost, then not come back on. My suspicion is the defroster kills the compressor, but won't close the circuit after defrost. Danby Customer Service tells me that there is a manual defrost button. My understanding is the defrost is part of the thermostat. Does anyone have a schematic for the thermostat on the 440? Alternatively, can anyone suggest how to isolate the defrost so I can more effectively troubleshoot the problem?

Frozen evaporator From what I can tell looking at the wiring diagram this unit initiates defrost with a defrost timer. I can manually initiate defrost by following the instructions on the back of the diagram, but this appears to be the only way to defrost this freezer. If left alone...the evaporator completely freezes up and the defrost tray turns into a solid block of ice. That's when everything in the freezer and fridge begin to melt (go bad). All of the wiring has good connections (checke

Freezer section is cold but refrigerator section will not cool because of ice build up on evaporator coils in freezer and air can not flow to refrigerator side. I manually defrosted it two weeks ago but frost again built up on coils. I feel I have either a bad defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost limit switch. Which one of these items is usually broken? How do I figure this out?

Condenser not defrosting. I have a F44R21NGW1. The condenser coils won't defrost. The appliance repair service has already replaced the defrost timer and declared everything else working. It worked fine for about 2-3 weeks, then the drinks in the fridge section slowly started getting warm again and the frozen foods felt not so frozen. I removed the panel and defrosted manually. It worked fine for 2-3 weeks and the same problem started. What else could be the problem? Might it be the thermo

HI. There is a defrost thermostat that regulates the defrost heater. This thermostat should be tested. You can test it by jumping the thermostat, or you can simply use a multimeter to test for continuity. Your symptoms are a strong indication of ther ...

Defrost issue Seems every once in a while the bottom freezer ices up and the top refrig gets warm.
If I manually twist the little red knob under the refrig (defrost timer) until it turns off it seems to work great defrosting the freezer. I do it like 2-3 times and it fixes the issue.

My westinghouse RT 169 refrigerator has worked perfectly for 35 years but now the defrost does not work. The water from the back of the deep freeze when it defrosts is not running away and builds up as ice in the drain until I have to take out the back panel in the deep freeze and defrost manually. The drain pipe is clear. Any suggestions?
