Freezer doesn't seem to be working right or freezing ice also refrigerator doesn't seem to be getting as cool as it should , a friend suggested it might be Defrost timer .... If so where would I locate on an Whirlpool mod.# W1TXEMMWQ00 and how could I test this to make sure it is the problem?
With this issue of the unit not cooling properly you will first want to determine if there is a defrost issue. To find out you will need to pull the rear wall in the freezer and check the evaporator coils to see if they are completely frozen up. If they are then you will want to do a continuity test on the heater and the defrost thermostat. If both have continuity then replace the defrost control. To access this you will need to pull the control housing in the refrigerator section.
The freezer goes down to 0 and up to 20 on defrost cycle foods freeze well no problem but ice creams are very soft. Thermostats on refrigerator set on 4 and freezer is also set on 4 can the problem be the defrost timer kit?
Answer Hello Moe,
This is more likely to be the defrost thermostat 10442411 but can also be due to the coils needing to be cleaned or air flow restricted around the unit or the defrost timer. The timer would not be the first suspect in this complaint. You need to make sure the evaporator fan motor 12013209Q can be stopped and will start back up to full speed on its' own.
Where is the defrost timer located on my Amana QSD26VW?
Answer Hello Jay,
Remove the toe grille. You will find the timer box mounted in front of condenser, just left of center.
Evaporator fan only works after heater thermostat is bypassed and one side of the common lead of of the thermostat is open and fan will not start up normally
This issue will be caused by a faulty defrost thermostat. The evaporator fan will not work on this unit unless the defrost thermostat is closed.
I need a thermo disk on the evaporator coil and can't find the part number.
Answer Steve, the defrost thermostat listed for your model is part number R0161088. Thanks!
Where is the defrost timer located?
Answer Jon, your model does not use a defrost timer. Your model uses a jazz board, which now comes in a kit as part number W10503278. The electronic control is located in the control section of the refrigerator side of your appliance. Hope this helps you. Thanks.
