Answers :

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 evaperator it will be shaped like a u each end will have a wire connected to it with no power to the machine dissconnect the wires to the heater and with an ohm meter check for resistance if it has resistance then it is good there is a defrost thermastat mounted on the suction line at the top of the evamerator with it still cold and frozen with the meter check this thermastat it should read resistance
\015\012
\015\012if either of these two parts shoul no resistance the one that does not is bad
\015\012if both show resistance then the defrost timer is the problem

Kitchenaide side by side, model # ksra25fk---freezer too cold (-10 to -15) & fridge side sometimes gets above 48 setting of the "overtemp" alarm. I ran the internal diagnostics test and everything checks out ok except during the air baffle test the baffles open and close, but the evaporator fan does not run. However, the evaporator fan runs during test 03 for the evaporator fan motor. I dismantled the back panel of the freezer--there is no frost buildup and the defrost coil heats properly. Both

The freezer side of my built-in side by side Jenn-Air refrigerator (JS48FSFXDA) is having the following problem: during the defrost cycle, water is dripping from the ceiling of the freezer onto door shelves/baskets and elevator shelves and forming a coat of ice. From what I can see, it looks like the glass defrost heaters are working fine and melting the frost off the evaporator but the water overflows out of the drip pan and rains down on the shelves. I removed the evaporator drip pan hoping to

Hi there. My GE GSL25JFPD side by side has major issues. The evaporator has completely frozen over. We called a technician twice. The first time he replaced the main electrical board. This fix lasted about 2 months before we had the same problem again. The tech came out again and tested various parts..All came back with normal readings so he replaced the main board again. Now, only 1 week later, we have the same frozen evaporator coils. I removed the panel, used a hair dryer to defrost to at lea

It is a frost free refridgerator, but it frosts up and the refridgerator part doesn't cool as well.

I printed out the KF24 pictoral diagram and had to draw a ladder diagram for our HVAC training course in order to troubleshoot the system in the lab. In trying to rectify the Evaporator Defrost heater circuit to the pictoral I ran into two problems. First, assuming that white was the power wire, I drew the heater circuit backwards (controls were on the assumed "neutral" side), but they were controlling the heating circuit while leaving the Drain tube heater energized all the time (that is the

My GE TFX26GRDA side-by-side refrigerator periodically freezes up the coils so completely that no air circulates and the fresh food compartment gets WAY too warm. It does this over a period of anywhere between 4-12 months and has been happening since the unit was new. I just finished defrosting the coils with a hair dryer yet again. The defrost thermostat gave a resistance reading of about .5 ohm while frozen in ice; that is supposed to be normal. The heater coil works at least part of the time
