Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a Kelvinator P253T-1 refrigerator with freezer issues. First of all it was REALLY icing up (no door - long story). Can't locate owners manual. Recently it appears to be defrosting itself. I pushed the red 'button' in the centre of the thermostat - that turned it off; now I can't get it to start again.

I have a Kenmore coldspot (6 yrs old). Yesterday it stopped getting cold and food started melting. The light is still on and it is still making ice. The fan appears to still be working as well but the inside of the refrigerator and freezer is warm to the touch. The only thing different that happened yesterday is the reset button was accidentally pushed on the outlet next to it and all the outlets on that wall turned off. But I took the reset button off and everything else is working.

I have a small magic chef fridge that just stopped working. Can seem to get the motor going at all - if just defrosted by itself. Inside is a dial and a red button - we've clicked that a few times to try to get it working again, but it hasn't.

It stopped freezing and worked ok for a week or so and then started freezing everything again. It stopped freezing things but now app

Thermostat schematic? My 440BL will run for a few days, defrost, then not come back on. My suspicion is the defroster kills the compressor, but won't close the circuit after defrost. Danby Customer Service tells me that there is a manual defrost button. My understanding is the defrost is part of the thermostat. Does anyone have a schematic for the thermostat on the 440? Alternatively, can anyone suggest how to isolate the defrost so I can more effectively troubleshoot the problem?

What is the resistance of the defrost thermostat at below 30^ or at the point that the heater should come on? Also what is the resistance of the thermostat at room temprature? It appears on the schematic that this is a normally open switch and that it closes when it senses time for defrost cycle. I've checked the resistance acorss the thermostat at both warm and freezing conditions and inn both cases the resistance is very high. Also, the defrost heater is not open, and the defrost timer conta
