I have an issue with my refrigerator where the freezer is in defrost mode for a bit too long and my food will thaw out. Also the refrigerator gets warm. Eventually it gets cold again but it seems like it stays in defrost mode for way too long. Does this sound like an issue with the thermostat and/or timer?
ANSWER Hello Steve. if you can turn the timer and start the unit back when it sticks, then replace the timer. If not, then you will need to replace the cold control in the unit.
