I have an Admiral LFT2112ARW, about 8 yrs old. Refer compartment just stopped getting cold. Freezer is working just fine. I plugged the fridge back in and manually turned the defrost timer until it clicked. Freezer started right up, but did not feel any cool air coming from the freezer compartment to the fridge. I don't know anything about fridges, so I don't know if it's the defrost timer or maybe the run capicator. the copper drier by the compressor is getting cold. Not sure if tha

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 ...
I have a Kenmore side by side model #106.50517001. It started defrosting and not coming back on at odd times, I thought that it was probably the defrost timer, you could unplug the fridge, plug it back in and it would start working but when you turned the timer screw, it would go off then not come back on. I replaced the timer and it still wasn't working. Out of frustration I slapped the control panel cover and it came on. What else inside there do I need to replace?
Replace the cold control that operates the compressor it is located on or near the control panel ...
Not cooling I have a kenmore 363599522996 that is not cooling in the fridge section. The fan is running, compressor runs, there was a ton of ice frost on coils and i defrosted all that, timer and heater seem to be working fine but fridge is still not cooling. I can feel air coming out of vent in fridge but fairly weak perhaps. (I don't know how strpong it should be). THere is no obstruction in vent, How long should it take for fridge to cool down after it has been off? I appreciate any help! tha

Have Frigidaire side by side refrigerator. Model PLHS267ZABO. It is acting dead. No fan motors will come on. Compressor does not come on. Only the lights on the control panel on the door and the lights inside the compartments come on.
I replaced the defrost control and installed the new wiring harness as directed in the instructions that came with this part. The damper does operate now when the fresh food compartment control is turned on. The compressor and fans do not come on when the Fr

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 GE Profile side by side refrigerator model TFX27PF. The coils behind the panel in the freezer section do not automatically defrost as engineered. I have to take off the back cover and manually defrost the coils.
After defrosting the normal light will come on and remain on for approximately 3 days. Then the def indication will come on in the status window.
Since you have accessed and defrosted the evaporator coils, check the resistance of the defrost heater, and the continuity of the defrost thermostat. Replace the defrost heater should it read open and the defrost thermostat should it rea ...

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 ...
I have a Kenmore side by side model 52569100 that is not cooling. Fan is running but not the compressor. Compressor is not trying to come on. Was wondering if it could have gone into defrost and not come out. Any suggestions?
If the compressor is not turning on you might want to check the relay switch.The switch is located on the side of the compressor usually with two wires running to it. To check unplug the fridge remove the switch and shake it, if it rattles you need t ...

I have a Jenn-Air side by side model JCB2388GR about 1 month ago the freezer coils and fan were iced up and both sides (refrigerator and freezer were not cooling/freezing properly) I defrosted the freezer and everything was fine. I did notice a clicking and buzzing sound coming from the frige side (near the temperature controls) and now it looks like the coils are iced up again on the freezer side which is still working but the frige side is not cooling. I think it may the defrost timer.

I am trying to trouble shoot the de frost system on a whirlpool #ed5hbexts01 side by side refer. I have found the evapv. froven and will not go to defrost. The defrost thermo reads open with my fluke meter. Evap frozen top to bottom remove thermo and brought to room temp still reads open. Trying to figure if defrost timer is bad or thermo. I would think that the thermo would open on rise of temp and start cooling cycle over. any thoughts

KitchenAid ksra25fk not cooling. defrost fan in freezer continues to run. compressor not coming on at all. appears defrost timer not opening. is the timer part of the circuit board in this model?

GE side by side: Model GSL25JFPABS Does not defrost. Circulating fan is working. Heating element works when 110v is apllied to it. Points in thermostat are closed (freezer warm). Installed new circuit board Door gaskets sealing well. There is no way (I presume) to force the circuit board to bring on the defrost circuit. (unlike older timer motor). Without a wiring diagram I cannot check all components. My assumption is that the board cuts power to the compressor and then powers

All the food in the freezer defrosted and the refrigerator side is not cold enough. I have vaccuumed the coils and the fan on the back side is running. The compressor comes on for about 10 seconds then shuts off again. I think it is the compressor! It is the black round thing in back.
The compressor isnt coming on for about 10 seconds, its attempting to start for about 10 seconds. Since you will not have the proper device to jump start the compressor, your only choice to determine if its the compressor itself, or the start device ...

It is behind the rear cover in the freezer section, you need to remove the freezer shelfs and bins, you will see the screws on the back panel (remove frost from panel) remove the screws and the heater will be a black element that is mounted on the ...
