Our Freezer is not getting cold ! The evaporator fan is working fine and is on, the fridge side of things works perfectly .. but no matter what temp I set the freezer to, it just does not get cold/freeze at all. Would this be the Control-Defrost board that's causing this ? I was looking at PS2581557, but it states fridge not freezer !
This issue would most likely not be caused by the defrost control. You will want to access the back wall of the freezer and check the frost pattern on the evaporator coils. A full, even frost pattern is what you will be looking for. If the coils are impacted with frost or ice then it would be a defrost issue, but since the refrigerator section is operating fine then the it most likely will not be this. If the evaporator has just a couple of loops that have frost on them, then the issue will be more likely a sealed system problem. This will either pertain to a leak or a restriction in the sealed system.
I was about to replace the defrost control on my fridge when I realized the was a red/yellow wire that was not hooked up to anything. I can't figure out where it goes. Any ideas.
Answer Hello Chelsey. The only yellow/red listed on your model is the auger motor. Check and see if the wire color you provided is correct. It is not showing it in the control panel. Thanks.
WHERE IS THE DEFROST CONTROL LOCATED
The places that the defrost control would most likely be would be in the refrigerator compartment under the cover on the left wall or when you remove the lower grill of the refrigerator it would be on the frame on the left side near the door hinge.
My freezer will not freeze things. It works part of the time then quits. There is a buzzing noise that comes from the back of the fridge.
You will first want to check to see if the condenser fan motor is operational and that the coils are clean. If the fan motor is not working it will cause the compressor to overheat and will cause the buzzing noise. You will also want to check your start relay to make sure that the relay is not burnt. If it is then you will need to replace the relay. If all this checks ok and relay has no burn marks and doesn't rattle then the compressor would be faulty and need to be replaced.
My freezer only gets cold not freezing and the frig size is barely.
Answer Hello Balm,
You will want to check to see if the freezer rear wall has frost build up. If so you will need to remove the rear cover of the freezer wall and check the defrost heater 242044113 and the bimetal 5303918214 for continuity. If either component does not have continuity then that part would need to be replaced. If both check ok then you would need to replace the defrost control 242011001.
