Hello. I have purchased this for my Kenmore and would like to know the wiring directions for my model. Thank you.
Answer Hello Kirk,
There are not wiring instructions for the defrost timer kit. The unit should have a plug in connector on old timer and plugs in the same as on the new timer.
My Amana SRD21VW side by side has a problem with the freezer allowing the ice to melt and then refreezing (as a big block). Ice is now melting long enough to leak out of freezer.
I believe the issue is with the defrost controller; is this system controller by a timer or thermistor?
Answer Hello PC7060
This units defrost is controlled by a defrost timer R0131577. If the timer is sticking this would cause the issue. Also check to make sure that condenser coils are clean and that the condenser fan motor is operational. These are also things that could cause the unit to not function properly.
Freezer is freezing up. Refrigerator is warm. We thaw it out. It last a while then it freezes back up. Any idea?
Answer Hello Jim. 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
