Defrost timer Wards refrigerator model hmg186240A
I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator model BQ20RBL that builds up ice on the back wall of the freezer. There is no cold air entering the refrigerator upper box unless I also open the freezer door. The defrost timer (behind the front grill) does turn, and I have checked the contacts: OK. I have manually turned the defrost timer switch to 'defrost' but the frost does not go away.
Two weeks ago, when this problem first occurred, I emptied the freezer and refrigerator, and let it thaw. T

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.

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. ...

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 ...

I have a Whirlpool/Kenmore Model 106.8607312 and the refrigerator section is not cooling but the freezer section is working. There is a lot of ice in the freezer section so i'm guessing the defrosting is not working. When i opened the freezer section to uncover the back it was covered in ice. I unplugged everything and let it melt. However i can't find the defrost timer to test if it works. I read somewhere that it may be be part of the ice maker. Can you help me find the defrost timer?
We ll see how u need to check the defrost timer....Before testing the defrost timer, unplug the freezer to avoid an electrical shock hazard.A mechanical defrost timer controls the defrost cycle of the appliance. In older models, the timer ...

I have a Maytag mtf2195aes model refrigerator. I paid some guy $160 to fix the defrost timer. It is not fixed. The problem is that the freezer part is building up water droplets at the top of it. The back of the freezer is frosting up. I just defrosted the refrigerator for 24 hours and it still happening. What is the problem or does it sound like I need a new refrigerator?

I have a three year old GE Profile refrigerator (Model PSF26NGTD BB) that is a bit warmer that usual. There is quite a bit of frost in the freezer so I think I have frost free failure. I have two questions (1) Does this model have a defrost timer that I could replace, or does it just have a defrost heater and thermostat? (2) How do I gain access to these components (i.e. through the back of the machine, through the freezer, etc)? I am asking the second question because going through the freez

I have a model 970607622. The freezer is working but the refrigerator is not cooling. It appears that it is defrosting as there is water inside it. I am an auto mechanic and had a similar problem on a different refrigerator a number of years ago. I recollect that I changed a timer relay for the defrost. I am now a Pastor who is living in another Pastor's guest home and would appreciate your assistance asap. Thank you and be blessed Hal
Hello Pastor, After reading what you have said, it sounds as though you have a simular problem as before. Normally the symptoms of a faulty defrost timer are the frezzer is working for now anyway, and the inner cold box is starting to warm up. Yes, y ...
My maytag side by side model mzd2752gr is leaking water on the floor from the freezer. This model does not have a drain pan. I am sure the drain port in the back of the freezer is not draining, but could it be a problem with the evaporator system that using compressed air to blow through the drain port may cause damage somewhere. One week ago, I replaced the defrost timer and defrost thermostat/heating element due to the freezer freezing up and the refrigerator not cooling. This water leaking pr

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

Defrost Timer I have a GE side by side refrigerator with ice maker. It's a model # GSH25SGPA SS I?ve been having problems with the freezer building up frost around the inside, and then the refrigerator doesn't get cold. I have to unplug everything, take the shelves out of the freezer and then blow-dry the coil every week, and then the refrigerator gets cold again. The seals on both doors are fine, so that can't be what's causing the problem. I've cleaned any dust that I could in back of the frid
