My refrigerator seems to quit working after a couple days. I thought it was not defrosting so we unplugged for 24 hours. After this we plugged it in and it all gets cold and good to go for 3-4 days and then there seems to be no cold blowing in from the vent.
Answer Hello Dan,
You need to remove the back wall of the freezer compartment and look at the frost pattern. If the evaporator fan motor isn't running or is running too slowly, the fan motor W10128551 will require replacement. If the fan is running and starts back up on its' own after you stop the blade, the problem is probably a defrost issue.
The most likely cause of the issue if there is a frost build-up and the fan motor is operating normally is the defrost thermostat W10165425. It should read continuity when the part is down to temperature. If it reads good, the defrost heater 12729128 could have burned out or the electronic control 12784415 may have an issue.
How do I remove the freezer door with the side tracks? My back wall is all iced up.
Answer Hi Tony. On the top or the side of the door bracket is a screw that stops the door from being lifted off the inner lt. and rt. freezer rails. Then at the end of the door bracket at the back is a guide "hook" that pulls up and out as you lift the door up and back off the side rails. The door comes off in this manner and reassembles in the reverse sequence. This allows you to reach and remove the back wall to replace the evaporator fan motor part # W10128551. Thank You.
