I have a 6 year old Jenn Aire Side by Side, works great, just a loud clicking noise coming from upper left hand side as you face the unit. It runs for a while and then when you open the freezer door it will stop, until closed again. I think it may some type of timer motor since it is not on all the time. What is your opinion and how hard is it to replace? Do you have YouTube video on it, I am very handy! Thanks in advance,

The food in my freezer was thawing, it acted and sounded like the defrost mode was stuck on. Could the defrost timer cause this? I emptied the freezer out and put a thermometer in it and then turned it all of the way up; it cooled down to approx. 11 degrees. Now I don't hear the defrost mode being on.

Ice in tray starting to melt so i did some checks, asked a question here and found defroster cycle was not working correctly, made diagnosis and replaced defroster thermostat and also defrost timer, now defrost cycle is working correctly however the unit turns off and stays off untill temps in freezer hit 45-50 degrees. Local repairman says the compressor is getting to hot and shutting off . Temp. at the compressor is about 138 degrees. Woke up this morning and unit was off, temp in freezer is 45 and compressor temp is 78 degrees. If compressor was shutting down cause of overheating then once temps drop shouldn`t the unit turn on again? Any direction would be helpfull.

Ice is melting in tray, ice maker is working but it appears that it melts then re freezes. I noticed that refrigerator is not running even though temp is above freezing. I removed the back cover in the freezer and coil was frozen so I switched the defroster timer to defrost and element did not heat up. I did not have continuity over defrost t-stat so I replaced it and now element gets hot. After a couple days the unit seems to be better but ice cream is not solid and temp goes up to 33 degrees in freezer I`m assuming while in defroster mode. Can defroster cycle take to long and cause this? Should I also replace timer? Unit is 10 years old. Thanks

I notice a popping sound coming from the unit on occasion, could this be a bad bi-metal switch? If so, where is the switch located? Also, how do I test the defrost timer?
