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.

Defrost problem... I would like to know... My freezer is totally frozen behind the back panel, AND all the evap coils are covered in ice. I've been defrosting it with a hair dryer for the last 2 weeks...ugh Is there a method to manually engage defrost cycle, check if defrost heater is bad, or test the thermostat? The thermostat is CHEAP, and I'm considering replacing it just to see if this fixes it. Any and ALL advice welcomed...except advice to replace board, please? :-) At this point (before a

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:

I have a GE PSS26 MGTA BB siode by side refrigerator. Problem was that it would get warm in frig and freezer at times. Looked at coils in freezer and they wer iced over. I replaced heater and heater thermostat that clips to the top of coiols and problem still exists. I have discovered that if you try to put the frig in defrost mode (code 14) the heater never comes on, HOWEVER, if you run the reset, (code 15) then run the defrost (code 14) the heater will come on ever time. I suspect the main log

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. My model is GSS25ufmb ww. Is this true and would the next step be the computer board. The compressor fan is working and the freezer fan is working.
You need to check the mother board. There are usually visible burn marks on it. In any case if your heater and thermo are good it can only mean you need a board. ...

GE TBX18SKE REFRIGERATOR IS AROUND 55F AND THE FREEZER IS AROUND 22F. I took the heating tube out and did a continuity test, tested good, visually it looks great. I cannot seem to locate the defrost timer. I put a new thermostat switch, the one that clips on the coils behind the freezer cover. I would just replace the heater and the defrost timer if I could just locate the darn thing, it doesn't seem to be behind the temp controls in the fridge either. Can anyone help?

GE model #GSS201EMBWW is not defrosting, checked defrost heater and it was burned out. Replaced with new 2 heater design and now it burns all the time, which is most likely what burnt the other 1 out. Looking at forums it says this model does not have a defrost timer, instead has mother board that controls the defrost. I would think that if the mother board was bad it wouldn't heat at all. Any info you have would be helpful
This is how the defrost works . I have NEVER found a defrost problem associated with a bad main control board since these computerized GE's came out in 2000 . Lots of thermistor problems , lying to the board , causing different problems . \015\ ...

My GE Fridge is icing up in the freezer. I had a GE tech come in and he glanced at it briefly and said it was the defrost heater. I looked online and learned that it could be either the defrost heater, the defrost timer, or the defrost thermostat. How do I know for certain it is the heater, and then how do I replace it if this is the case? I see no online directions on the defrost heater and looks like I could buy one for about $60.
If you can get to the terminals of the heater, check the resistance with the ohmmeter setting of a multi-tester. You should get a reading of perhaps 10-15 (?) ohms if the heater is good. Or remove the heater and connect it to a 110 voltage source d ...

When you attempt to adjust the temp via the controls, freezer will not go off until set to zero. I think this may be due to the frost build up.

Now it cools and stays cool but like twice a day it must defrost itself and there is water on the floor and the ice in the ice maker is soild.
Icemaker solid:\015\012\015\012This could be a problem with the icemaker not dumping the ice or with the water valve in back not shuting off completely.\015\012\015\012\015\012Water in the floor:\015\012\015\ ...

I have a frigidaire model FRS23H5ASB9 side by side. The condenser is freezing up with a block of frost and ice. The freezer gets cold but not very cold. The refrigerator does not get very cold either (60 degrees). We have replaced the control-defrost, adaptive timer, PC board and still had the same problem. I think it might be either the defrost heater kit or the thermostat for the defrost heater kit. My question is: 1. How can I troubleshoot before I buy these parts. 2. The copper t

Our Maytag refrigerator model MZD2766GEW is not defrosting. It appears that we need a new heater & thermostat assembly, which I can purchase via the internet. However, I do not know how to replace the present heater. Can you give detailed instructions as to the steps I must take to replace this heater? Many thanks.
Hi.To start before replacing the heater/thermostat assembly, you can test the part. To test read if there is continuity at thermostat/heater contacts (impedance is not Ohm infinity).Then you need the part. If you have not purc ...

You can check the fan plugs for voltage to see if it's getting power with an ohm meter. If it is the fan is bad. It should spin freely when spun by hand. If there is never power then the board is at fault. ...
