could be burned out in your model. Can you look inside the fresh food section and find the model number for me. The answer to the problem on your model depends on having the correct model number so I don't miss other parts that may cause a defrost failure. I know you said Monogram Side by Side but that does not tell me for sure what the Model Number on your refrigerator is. If your model is like the models in the GE Monogram Refrigerator Service Manual the I can have an idea of those parts. Those models have the defrost controls as part of their motherboard and that board does not fail at least in the defrost part of the board. defrost very often. You may need to also test or replace the WR50X10088 Defrost Thermostat I will be here should you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze

The damn thing works fine except sometimes after defrost (+17C spike over 0.5 hr) the freezer will not cool down low enough, leveling off at around -5C, after 2hrs at this temperature the alarm goes off . After 3.25 hrs & -5C after defrost it starts to cool again and works fine. When it works fine, does not alarm, the defrost spike is the same, but the freezer cools to approx. -15C in two hours. What prevents it from cooling below -5C in the alarm condition?

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?

My water dispenser stopped working. When I try dispensing water, I hear a clicking sound, but no water comes out. Is something frozen inside? When this has happened in the past, I've emptied the ice holding compartment and the water dispenser would eventually start working again. This time, it still doesn't work. I've read on here that something may be frozen and I can defrost with hairblower and lower freezer setting and raise regrigerator setting. Where do I blow to defrost?
