Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

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

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 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?

The part number for that timer should be 482493. I'll venture to say that the black wire is throwing you off. Look at the timer, the pins to be exact, and notice how they are numbered. The black wire slides over pin 3. Once that is done cycle the tim ... Refrigerators

I have a three year old GE Profile refrigerator (Model PSF26NGTD BB) that is a bit warmer that usual. There is quite a bit of frost in the freezer so I think I have frost free failure. I have two questions (1) Does this model have a defrost timer that I could replace, or does it just have a defrost heater and thermostat? (2) How do I gain access to these components (i.e. through the back of the machine, through the freezer, etc)? I am asking the second question because going through the freez

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?

Good day,\015\01210/35 is fine. They don't always give the defrost period time. The original may have been a 10/30 or the same as the one you have. In either case the longer the better, since it allows more time for the water to drain out and ... Refrigerators

Defrost element Had issues with warm frig. I defrosted freezer and found defrost heater element blown.

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.

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. ... Frigidaire Refrigerators

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 ... Whirlpool Refrigerators

My 2 yr old LG LMX25964SS is supposedly not repairable due to a restriction in the sealed system. The LG repairman was going to replace the compressor but did not when he determined that there was a restriction. Why can't the faulty orifice be replaced? How tough is it to dig out? They are offering me $1K. Only problem is that a replacement one costs $2400, twice what I paid 2 years ago.
