Not Defrosting Fridge side was not cooling. Replaced Temperature Controller, but, did not solve problem. Realized the freezer may not have been defrosting properly. Tested the Defrost Timer per the solution offered here and susequently replaced it. Now the freezer is not defrosting at all. Is there a set-up for the Defrost Timer that I am missing or is this problem deeper down the line?
There are two more items that needs to be tested...\015\012\015\012one the defrost heater itself and the second one is the bi-metal which cuts off the heater in case there is no ice to heat.\015\012\015\012tnx 4 using fixya, ...
I have an OLD Kenmore Coldspot top mounted refriderator, model number 106.8679311. It started making noises approximately 12 hours apart and we suspected it's the defrost timer. I purchased a replacement timer. The first part of the directions to replace the timer say to determine which defrost cycle I have and offers three different locations to connect the black wire on the new timer. My problem is, I have no schematic to look at to determine this. The wires on the old timer are the follo
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?

Defrost element Had issues with warm frig. I defrosted freezer and found defrost heater element blown.

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. Possibly wires crossed up by previous owner. Timer will go into defrost mode when manually advanced but will not move on its own. 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 an Amana bottom freezer, model BX20S5E that is not cooling properly in either compartment. I have replaced both the defrost thermostat and defrost timer (new). Still no change... what I do notice is that around the defrost timer there is a ball of ice. The ice doesn't extend over the fins at all, just around the thermostat. I have unthawed with a blow dryer and turned on again but the ice returns. All the fans are working properly and the compressor seems to be running. During the defrost

Frigidaire side by side - replaced defrost timer. defrosts as should for a few days and then the evap freezes up. After advancing the timer to defrost cycle and powering off and on it will defrost properly for a few days and then fail again. Loose wire? Bad t-stat?? I'm lost.
Good day,\015\012Sounds like a bad timer to me. Forget the tstat. Power comes from the power cord and goes directly to the tstat. The tstat sends the power to the timer where it is directed to either the compressor or defrost heaters as needed. ...

My Amana refrigerator defrost timer is supposed to cycle every eight hours. Instead it takes about 14 hours to cycle around back to the defrost mode. The defrost mode does last for the proper 20 minutes. This is a brand new defrost timer which I bought to replace the old one, which was only three years old. The old one did the same thing which made me believe it was broken.

I want to replace a conventional defrost timer with adaptive defrost assembly 61005988. The defrost timer has 4 prongs with the standard prong assignment (3 4 1 2) however the adaptive defrost assembly has 6 prongs. Can you tell me how to proceed.
Good day,\015\012You can go from an adaptive (electronic) to a conventional timer, but not the other way. \015\012I've done many. \015\012The reason why, is initial cost and long term dependability. My experience is, electronics hav ...

I have a ten year old KitchenAid Supra side-by-side refrigerator, model #KSSS4QDK05. The freezer appears to periodically get stuck in defrost and not come back out. One relay switch and two defrost timers have been replaced and same behavior. If I advance the timer a full cycle, the freezer restarts. Repair guy is convinced its another fault timer. Are we barking up the right tree here or could this be an electrical problem, a thermostat issue or some other issue?
Before i replaced the defrost timer again i would replace the defrost termonator . pt # 2000528 / this could cause the problem and the other is the main board pt 4288656 . both of these could cause this the bi metal t ...

13 yr old Whirlpool Side by Side refridgerator model ED25PDQ DW03 quits cooling occasionally..
Sometimes for unknown reason... the cooling stops. I had Sears out.. either bad defrost timer or ? I replaced the defrost timer... still stops. I guess it might be the thermostat control which is located inside the top front chassis.
If I pound next to the thermostat panel area... the compressor starts up and works again... until it quits maybe every other day.
You can bypass the defrost thermostat the next time it stops working to see if that is the problem. Connect the two wires to each other instead of the thermostat.The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer wil ...

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?

My freezer runs all the time, nearly 24/7 I think. I've had repair guy out here twice. He replaced the thermostat (twice) and the defrost timer (once). Temp is zero and no leaks. There is excessive ice on food. I'm thinking about just putting a digital timer on it, maybe dis-abling the auto-defrost somehow. Help ?
