Defrost Timer Hello, Our LG fridge continues to ice up at the back of the freezer compartment, causing the fan to make noise. I am able to put the fridge in defrost mode using the Express Freezing & Colder buttons on the touch panel. The unit does defrost then. Is there a way to advance the timer to have it defrost more often, or does it sound like a timer problem? Thanks in advance.

The freezer is cold, but the fridge wasn't. I took the back panel of the freezer off and there was ice on the evaporator coils. I defrosted the coils to remove the ice, and the fridge got cold. I understand that the problem may be the defrost timer, or the t'stat. Couldn't it also be the defrost heater (at the evaporator coils?

The freezer on my Amana ARB1917CB keeps frosting over; the fridge no longer cools.

Need a wiring diagram for Magic Chef mcbr1010w. Timer will not advance despite replacing and new timer checks out properly. I think that it is not getting sufficient power to the timer motor.

I've tried a new timer as well as a timer from a different make/model fridge that automatically defrosts....still will not move in the magic chef. I would be grateful for any h

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?

Maytag msd2454gr side by side. The evaporator coils freeze up and the fridge gets warm. This happened about a year ago and I thawed it out and everything was fine.

And if the fridge was unpluged for all that and defrosted one would think that nothing would or could still be in those vents. But nothing about this is making any sense to me.
