Were is the defrost timer located in this Kenmore refrigerator?
Answer Hello Juan,
The defrost timer 67001036 is located in the ceiling of the fresh food compartment between the lights and mounts to the bracket 67002085 surrounding the lights.
Defrosted and replaced adaptive defrost control and now compressor doesn't come on.
It sounds like the control board may have been set on a defrost cycle and normally within 30 minutes the unit will kick on. If this did not happen then most likely the control board may be defective and need to be replaced. Also check the relay on the compressor to make sure that it is not bad. You can pull the relay and shake it and if it rattles then it is bad.

The timer I have is 8 hour 7 min defrost looks the same as this one the spec no is" CD-2001-57 7 MINUTES".
Can I use this timer and will a longer defrost time damage the defrost heater Not replaceable as the interior is glude to the exteior no screws Help my customer is up set thank you for your help.
You would not want to use a timer that will stay in defrost longer as it could damage the unit. If the timer that you have is a 8 hr 7 min timer it just means that it goes into defrost every 8 hrs and stays on for 7 minutes. If you have another timer that is a 7 minute timer then it will work. You just do not want to extensively extend the length of time between defrosts.
