Unplug the ref .Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board .Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .\012\012If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature
I would try defrosting the fridge and freezer first, you may not see the ice in the freezer but it can be built up around the evaporater which is in behind the panels. can take up to 24hrs if iced up bad.

We have a Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator. The freezer must have started defrosting today. Everything inside is soaked, the ice maker quit producing ice and the ice was melting. The blower fan is running continuously but not blowing any cold air. We did have the freezer packed pretty full but not much more than usual. It seems like the refrigerator is now starting to warm up. We have turned off the freezer side to see if it makes any difference. What else should we do?

We have a Kenmore Model#363.9552410 that is a side by side with ice maker inside. We noticed the back wall of the freezer was completely frosted over and no ice was being made.

Defrost Problem I have a problem with the defrost unit. I have a Magic Chef side-by-side unit that was purchased in 1995. Regardless of temperature setting, the back of the side freezer unit will eventually frost up. As frost accumulates on the back wall of the freezer, inside temperatures begin to warm up.

I want to know if you can de-ice the freezer without turning the refrigerator section off. There's ice buildup in the freezer, obstructing the door. I want to de-ice it but don't want to turn off the fridge section and ruin the refrigerated food. I've turned the freezer to it's weakest freeze setting & opened the door wide. But the freeze element is keeping it too cold for the ice to melt. There's only one power chord for both sides of the fridge.
