\015\012Once you get the coils defrosted, a friend of mine said if you wrap a piece of copper wire across the two evaporator coils, and connect them, the coils will not ice up. I never tried this myself, but it might be worth trying.

We also vaccuumed compressor which was filled with dog hair and dirt. Do you think we have fixed the problem or should we be checking the defrost timer? Can anyone help share where the defrost timer is located on this model?

GE GSS22JF Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi , i have a kitchenaid Superba fridge model # yktrs20kbw00 with freezer up top. Freezer started losing temp. Is still cold but not freezing and fan has not come on since last night. Wondering if the fan is located in the bottom of the fridge or in the freezer behind the removable panel ? Both fridge and freezer are cold. i am thinking either the fan, fan control or the defrost timer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Where is the defrost timer located on GE model# GSS20IEMDWW side by side refrigerator? My freezer works but the other side is warm. I took the freezer panel off and it had a thick layer of frost everywhere. Possible defrost timer issue?
This model does not have a defrost timer. It has a motherboard. You must jump out the plug to the main board to test the defrost circuit. In order to do this take the cover off of the main board, find the three wire connector on the base of the main ...

13 yr old Whirlpool Side by Side refridgerator model ED25PDQ DW03 quits cooling occasionally..
Sometimes for unknown reason... the cooling stops. I had Sears out.. either bad defrost timer or ? I replaced the defrost timer... still stops. I guess it might be the thermostat control which is located inside the top front chassis.
If I pound next to the thermostat panel area... the compressor starts up and works again... until it quits maybe every other day.
You can bypass the defrost thermostat the next time it stops working to see if that is the problem. Connect the two wires to each other instead of the thermostat.The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer wil ...
Model FRS26kGCB1 seems to be Stuck in defrost mode, Ice Melts intermittantly and I replaced the defrost timer but have the same problem.
There is a control called a defrost terminator that tells the controls that all the ice is melted and to start cooling again. These go bad often and keep the unit from restarting. It is located on the cooling coil and is about the size of a walnut a ...
Im looking for the automatic defrost control location for a Frigidaire. Model # FRS6HR5HSB6, Serial # 4A80118247. My refrigerator compressor has stopped working for about 14 hours. I think it is stuck in the defrost cycle, I just want to advance it, so it will start working again. Until the service repairman can get here.
If your compressor is the only motor not working, meaning you also hear no other noises at all, advancing the defrost control out of defrost MAY solve your problem. However, if you do hear other motors running, then your refrigerator is not stuck in ...

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?

My kenmore side by side Model # 1069557623 sometimes will not turn back on till i bang the panel by the thermo knob on top then it turns on. do you think it's the thermostat or maybe the defrost timer although it will stay off i don't realize it as it flooded my kitchen when i was away.
Hi, it could be either. When you find the refrigerator off, try turning the defrost tmer manualy. It is located to the right side of the control panel. look to the buttom side of the panel and find a hole about 1/2". Put you finger in the hole and tu ...

The problem I have is with a side by side Fridgidaire fridge/freezer model FRS20WRH. The defrosting is what I think the problem is because of the ice build-up on the coils. There is a circular device with elec. wire that is attached to the copper tubing that wraps around the coils and attached to the piece of metal stuck inside the drain. Could this be a faulty device?

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.

I have an Amana bottom freezer, model BX20S5E that is not cooling properly in either compartment. I have replaced both the defrost thermostat and defrost timer (new). Still no change... what I do notice is that around the defrost timer there is a ball of ice. The ice doesn't extend over the fins at all, just around the thermostat. I have unthawed with a blow dryer and turned on again but the ice returns. All the fans are working properly and the compressor seems to be running. During the defrost

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

Defrost timer i have a westinghouse refrigerator with the freezer on top. model no. - RJ275M. i have just fitted a new defrost timer but it's still not working. could it be the capacitor or the defrost thermostat.i was wondering if the timer needs a complete circuit to work because at the moment i don't think there is any power getting to it.
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
GE model #GSS201EMBWW is not defrosting, checked defrost heater and it was burned out. Replaced with new 2 heater design and now it burns all the time, which is most likely what burnt the other 1 out. Looking at forums it says this model does not have a defrost timer, instead has mother board that controls the defrost. I would think that if the mother board was bad it wouldn't heat at all. Any info you have would be helpful

Model # GSS20IEMB. I clearly have a defrost issue. I have defrosted the freezer coils behind the back panel once before only to have them frozen again two weeks later. I have done a little research and it appears that this model does not have an individual defrost timer - apparently is is part of the motherboard. So is my best bet to just buy a new defrost heater - and see how it goes or is there something else I should be looking at first. Thanks.
You are coorect that there is no timer in this model. The control board does all of the monitoring for defrost operation. The control board is the last thing I would suspect. However the dfrost heater in this model is the first ...
