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 timer hi, came across a fisher and paykel fridge, all completely iced up and was restricting evap fan, when defrosted evap fan ran fine and had continuity through the heating element. however when i turned defrost timer around so it clicked into defrost i was not geting any voltage to the element. and then after about 5 to 10mins or so the defrost cut out and refrigeration began again. would u suggest that the defrost timer is stuffed? would a defrost termination t/sat have caused it to
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?

Well My Superba Model number KSRB25FHSS02 is not defrosting. It first happened 4.5 months ago and I defrosted several time then. after several defrosts, over a period of 2 weeks, the finale defrost gave the fridge 4 more months. Then it started freezeing up again. every 4 days I have to unplug it and defrost the thing! What a mess! I was wondering if someone could tell me what parts I need and how to install them? I really want to fix this myself, but I don't have the espertise?

I have a Maytag Model # MSD2957AEB side by side refrigerator and the coils in the freezer part each month seem to freeze up. This causes the cold vent leading to the refrigerator to stop the cold air flowing into the refrigerator. Each month I need to open the freezer side remove the back cover and defrost the coils. I assume it is the defroster not working correctly. Is the defroster the small cylindrical metal piece connected to the defrost element or is the defrost mechanism somewhere els

I bought a Samsung RS253BASB side by side refrigerator in 2006. a few month ago. I found that coil in fridge side was built up ice a few inch and not able to be defrosted. I'm not sure if this is due to faulty defrost sensor or faulty defrost heater. does anyone has a idea and not how to identify the problem is faulty defrost sensor or faulty defrost heater, and how to replace one of them. Thanks.
Defrost element Had issues with warm frig. I defrosted freezer and found defrost heater element blown. I replaced the element, defrost timer and some kind of two wire round thing that clips to a small pipe in the freezer. Now that two wire thing that I replaced have no idea what it was and it had to be spliced in. Now that all that is replaced everything is working. My question is this is the second defrost heater element that has been chang on this 7 year old frig. is this normal? Or is there s
You can check if the heating element has a metal cover on top. water should not be dropping on the glass directly while it is heating up. that is the cause of heating element blowing up. glowing hot glass cools down by a cold drop of water equals dis ...

Jenn-Aire Refrigerator Model JCD2389GEW
Last spring, it would not defrost and of course the refrigerator was warm.
I replaced the Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC)and that solved the problem. This week, the defrost problem returned. I defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer and reassembled and turned the freezer and slid the freezer and refrigerator controls back to the middle.
The compressor did not turn back on. (It was working before I defrosted.)I pulled the ADC to check for trouble cod

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, ...
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 ...
Frozen evaporator From what I can tell looking at the wiring diagram this unit initiates defrost with a defrost timer. I can manually initiate defrost by following the instructions on the back of the diagram, but this appears to be the only way to defrost this freezer. If left alone...the evaporator completely freezes up and the defrost tray turns into a solid block of ice. That's when everything in the freezer and fridge begin to melt (go bad). All of the wiring has good connections (checke
If you can initiate the defrost cycle my manually turning the knob then your problem is with the defrost timer. $77 seems unusually high...try googling appliance parts, there are many online stores that offer discounted parts. ...

Refrigerator I have a GE Refrigerator (1999) Model No TBG18DAYJRWW.
The fresh food compartment gets too warm. I then empty the freezer compartment, remove the back cover and the defrost coils are frozen solid. I manually defrost the unit and it runs perfectly for 3 weeks. Then I have to repeat the above.
I have read the various articles and have narrowed the problem down to 1 of 3 components.
The defrost thermostat
The defrost timer

My side-to-side General Electric (TFX27PFSA) has ice build up on the freezer section and is not cooling the refrigerator. I am assuming it is a defrost problem. I asked an appliance repair man and he told me the price to fix it was about $250. I checked online and they sell the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer for around $25 a piece. My question is, what exactly is wrong with the defrost and what do i need to buy so that i can fix it.

The regrig side seemed fine. It is about 48 degrees now. From: kimberlyiman You have a defrost problem.
