It's a side by side notice that frig not cool, as it should be. Freezer, side is cold, but notice frost, on back panel . Ice maker, make very little ice . I unplugged it to defrost it . I went threw this cycle , three times . Same, re-action all three times . All three times, my compressor & Fan motor were on. Turned temp control knobs setting to 'O' degree for both sides. Forth time I plugged in ," nothing" ! Frig & freezer, sides lights-up, but the fan & compressor, wont come on . Why would the "fan motor, & Compressor , go at the same time ? Thanks Lee
It sounds like you may have put the unit into a defrost cycle in which the evaporator fan, condenser fan and compressor would not run. If you are seeing frost on the back wall of the freezer then this would indicate a defrost failure. By turning the control knobs to the off postion then turn back on and doing this a couple of times may have put unit into defrost. You will want to pull the rear cover off the freezer compartment and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat for continuity. If there is no continuity then they are bad and need to be replaced. If the coils are frosted and the heater and thermostat are good then you would need to replaced defrost control.
