I have a Kenmore Elite Mod. No. 106.70202991. The defrost wire is not heating and freezer is freezing up. How do I determine if the defrost timer is faulty ot the heating wire?


HI. There are two causes here, in this situation. The most common will be a faulty defrost timer, or adaptive defrost control board. The defrost mechanism will vary form unit to unit. Most newer units will be equipped with an defrost control board. T ... Kenmore Refrigerators

Freezing freezer My frigdaire side-byside keeps freezing up in the evaporator section, the heater is at 22 ohms, and there no power to it. I was looking at the wiring diagram and found that the wire comes from the defrost timer through the defrost thermostat. I was wondering were the timer was and how to test it.

GE side by side: Model GSL25JFPABS Does not defrost. Circulating fan is working. Heating element works when 110v is apllied to it. Points in thermostat are closed (freezer warm). Installed new circuit board Door gaskets sealing well. There is no way (I presume) to force the circuit board to bring on the defrost circuit. (unlike older timer motor). Without a wiring diagram I cannot check all components. My assumption is that the board cuts power to the compressor and then powers

We have a ZISB420DMB side by side refrigerator. All of the lights on the refrigerator side will not work. The freezer side lights are ok. I checked the master light switch and its on. There are 2 things that come to mind and hope you can help.. 1. According to the schematics there is a inline fuse for the refrigerator side lights only but I cant find the fuse. 2. There is a heat sensor that if the door is open too long the lights will turn off. Perhaps that sensor is out. Again I co

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?

Our Hotpoint (HSS25GFTA)fridge was not cooling either side. We have emptied everything out and things are defrosting (lots of water coming from under fridge) Is it possible that after we start things back up again it will work? Weather here has been extremely humid the last couple of days... If not, is there a way to determine if it's the defrost control, heating element or the thermostat?


Hello,The answer to these questions lies in the way the freezer/fridge combo works. The freezer is where the cooling coils are located. Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The ... Hotpoint Refrigerators

GE Refrigerator TFX25JRYDWW: Solenoid has two outlets, one for water to the door which still works but the other is not opening to let water into ice maker. Have switch wires and solenoid to ice maker opens when door water switch is activated. I'm only seeing 20 volts AC at the ice maker side of the solenoid. I believe it may be the capacitor or possibly the relay but can't tell without a schematic. Any help would be appreciated.

I printed out the KF24 pictoral diagram and had to draw a ladder diagram for our HVAC training course in order to troubleshoot the system in the lab. In trying to rectify the Evaporator Defrost heater circuit to the pictoral I ran into two problems. First, assuming that white was the power wire, I drew the heater circuit backwards (controls were on the assumed "neutral" side), but they were controlling the heating circuit while leaving the Drain tube heater energized all the time (that is the

I have a GE side by side refrig. I want to install a 3n1 start capacitor. The instructions with the product are quite clear on wiring to the run capacitor and the compressor but offer no help on how to attach the two line wires. The two wires off of the old start relay (one start wire, one run wire) and the two wires off the old run capacitor and the one Black wire(the former neutral) to the compressor are all available. How do I hook this thing up to be sure it is controlled by the thermostat a

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

Nice job on the voltage checks! Now, are you checking 'across' the switch, or one side to ground?If you go across, or one end then the other end to ground, you should see 120 volts to ground.
