The freezer stopped freezing and is as cold as the fridge. I thought it was a stuck defrost timer, but I cant find one. Any thoughts please??? 6 months out of warranty!
With the freezer being the same temp as the refrigerator you will want to pull the rear cover in the freezer compartment and check for a full even frost pattern. If the frost pattern is only partial, such as only the top couple of rows of coils have frost or just a little frost on the line coming in, then there is a sealed system type of issue.
Why am I getting a build up of ice coming out of my air diffuser ?
Answer Hello GERVAISE. Check and see if the fan motor is bad in the freezer or if the unit has a bad door seal and is letting in warm air in to the unit.
I am unable to locate a thermostat for this model. Is there one available?
Answer Mike, The defrost thermostat is part of the evaporator wire harness W10292244. You will need to order and replace the harness. There are no other "thermostats" in your refrigerator, your's has thermistors that work in sequence with the electronic control board.
I had ice building up on the back of the freeze with the refrig. Not working. I have taken the back wall of the freezer off and checked the heater, which seems to be fine. I have ice built up around thermostat I checked it and it shows no continuity. Is that my problem or could it be the board? What is left to check?
Answer Hello Mike. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The freezer works but has some frost on the inside top of its door. The refrigerator is not working. A couple of months back the unit was a little noisy. It is not noisy now. Any ideas what to check first?
Answer Jim, Check the baskets for articles hanging over the back or sides, holding the top of the freezer door open,and check that the door panel is sealing against the top flange, actually all the way around the opening. Check the freezer temperature, make sure the temperature is not below 0 dgrs. F. (preferably 3 to 5 dgrs) If the room air is infiltrating into the freezer compartment through a gap, ice accumulates on the evaporator and reduces air flow to the refrigerator compartment. Also check the freezer back wall for a heavy frost or ice build up on the complete panel, this would indicate a defrost issue.
