I have been without the use of my freezer for about two months now. Fridge is cold but freezer is just above freezing temp. I also noticed it is almost constantly running except for a short break when the defrost timer kicks in. It's about 9 years old and a 19 cu/ft bottom freezer type. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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?

Defrost issue Seems every once in a while the bottom freezer ices up and the top refrig gets warm.
If I manually twist the little red knob under the refrig (defrost timer) until it turns off it seems to work great defrosting the freezer. I do it like 2-3 times and it fixes the issue.
Kenmore 596.71103101 about 5years old. Gasket seems ok, maybe it needs to be cleaned? Also, i just vacuumed a ton of dust off the coil/radiator looking thing underneath of the refrig from the front.

I have a samsung cooltech SR 44RMB and water is leaking into fridge from vent located on under side of freezer unit. i read it might be drain to compresar tray clogged, in that case do i need to defrost for so long (48hs) or can i just run a wire up the drain pipe or use a blow dryer to defrost that pipe? thanks
The defrost drain is clogged. Usually high humidity will cause the drain to freeze up. The fix is easy and free, but it is timely. You must unplug the fridge for 36 hours with both doors open to let the drain thaw naturally. No heat should be used to ...

I have a hotpoint HTS22CBMBRWW refrigerator. It was running fine and then starting thawing like the defrost was stuck on. I unplugged it and let it sit for several days, but when I put it back on it cools great for 2 days and then gets warm again. I cannot find and don't know where else to look for the timer for the defrost, but think that might be the problem. I have looked behind the fridge, in the fridge and the freezer but do not know what I am looking for. Can you help?
According to this diagram you do not have a defrost timer. You have a motherboard which controls the defrost times based on the usage of the unit. If the heater is staying on too long, the problem could be the defrost thermostat not cutting the heate ...
I have a frigidaire FRS6LF7FS4 side-by-side that runs but has stopped cooling. This happened once before and I reset everything by cutting the power to the fridge for over two minutes. However, this time unplugging the fridge did not fix the problem. I can hear the compressor running but no cold air is coming out. I suspect it might be the defrost timer.
If the compressor is running, it is not the defrost timer. Some of these models had a sealed system problem where the capillary tube was pushed in too far into the filter dryer against the screen causing a partial restriction. After a while it would ...
