I have a whirpool gold that I have replaced the three way starter to the compressor ...The freezer and refrigerator went to working normal,now the freezer is barely freezing and the refrigerator is at 58 degress and will not go below that. (there is ice build up on the back wall in my freezer....Can you please share some advice on what i can check next.
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
I unplugged my refgridgerator out for 2 hours and then when I went to plug it back on the lights came on but not the fan?
You will want to check the defrost timer to make sure that the unit was not in defrost and stuck in defrost cycle. Since nothing is coming on, this would be the most common reason.
How to install defrost timer and also where located in kenmore refridgerator 59658647890?
Answer Hello Kirk. The timer is located int he unit compartment in the bottom of the unit. Disconnect the power and remove the screws securing the timer. Then unplug the wires and remove the timer from the unit. Install the new timer in reverse order.
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.
