Our 3 year old frigidare does not get cold any more. the compressor is hot and the fan is continually running. The ice maker stoped making ice. the freezer temp is over 40 degrees. I was told it could be the defroster timer stuck. I was told I could turn the timer and kick the unit out of a defrost mode. WHere would I find the defrost timer and does the frigidare units 3 years old +/- have the timer switch that can be twicked? What other things can I do to troubleshoot?

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 a older Kenmore refrigerator I use just for overflow, to cool pop etc. When I put it to secondary use, I removed the ice maker. Since the defrost timer was part of the ice maker, I installed a defrost timer that plugged in to where the ice maker used to. It has been working great for some time.
When I discovered recently it was not cooling and the compressor was not kicking in, I first checked the defrost timer.
When I move the adjustment and hit the groove, it shuts off and when I tu

I have also removed the control and checked find with ohm meter switch is recognized when switching off and on. I have 0 volts to relay overload.

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
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, ...
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.

The freezer is cold, but the fridge wasn't. I took the back panel of the freezer off and there was ice on the evaporator coils. I defrosted the coils to remove the ice, and the fridge got cold.
I understand that the problem may be the defrost timer, or the t'stat. Couldn't it also be the defrost heater (at the evaporator coils?
I did a short test by turning the defrost timer until the compressor shut off and checking for heat at the evaporator coils (I can't see the heater from the access at t
