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.

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.

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?

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.
