Defrost timer 2183400
Does the timer gear rotate on a time schedule or just when the compressor is running?
I have replaced the timer, set it in manual defrost - about 30 minutes later, the compressor starts running but I can't see any evidence that the timer gear is turning after about 8 hours. (I placed a mark on it)
Problem is that freezer frosts over and blocks cold air from the bottom of unit.
This timer should be a continuous run timer which means that it will run and advance all the time whether the compressor is on or off. If the timer is not advancing then the timer may be faulty.
