I just replaced my defost heating coil and my evaporator coil won't go back into the clips on the back wall. Is this an issue?
You will want to try to get the evaporator back into the clips or you can try to zip tie it to the clips. It will cause an issue of pushing out on the rear panel and could cause a frosting issue if not in proper position.
I'm having the issue where my freezer will build up frost on the back wall and eventually, my refrigerator will get warm. I've been manually defrosting my refrigerator for a few months now, and it's holding off the problem.
We bought a thermostat replacement part, in hopes that that was the issue. This was in January... it did not fix the problem. We are now installing a new heating coil in the hope that THAT will remedy the issue... other than the timer being the next piece, what else could be the problem?
If I replace the thermostat, the heater, and the timer, where do I go next?
Answer Hello Angie,
The problem will be the defrost timer, the defrost thermostat, or the defrost heater. You can turn the knob on the defrost timer with a screwdriver and force a defrost cycle. When the compressor and fans go off, the unit should come back on by itself within half an hour. During this time, the defrost circuit will be energized. You should be able to see the defrost heater glowing orange through the freezer wall slots. If not, the back freezer wall should be removed and make sure 120Vac is n both sides of the defrost thermostat. If not, the defrost thermostat is the failed component. If the voltage is on both sides, the defrost heater should be checked.
