defrost heater not heating due to bad contact

  • Customer: Mark from Columbia, MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I removed the back panel of the freezer using a nutdriver and located the defrost heater under the evaporator. It is strapped to the evaporator with aluminum straps that could not be undone without removing the evaporator (which would involve recharging the system and I have no tools to do that). I cut the straps with a nipper near where they were folded over each other (toward the bottom), and removed them. Fortunately there is a lot of extra strap, so I was able to remove the eye of the strap and reuse them. I removed the old element and installed the new, and wrapped the removed straps around the heater and evaporator where they were before, and plugged the element in. I did this on an old Kenmore refrigerator before also, and it had spring clips for the heater so you didn't have to cut anything. However, reusing the straps as I did resulted in the heater being adequately supported.

Took out the shelf, removed the rest of the broken rail, replaced it. Piece of cake. (Note: The meat drawer support rails on this otherwise good refrigerator are very flimsy and break with some regularity even when the meat drawer isn't heavily filled. A good idea to keep spare support rails at home.)

1). Shut off water supply to fridge. 2). Move fridge out to gain access to back of fridge. 3). Remove poly line to water tube have a glass handy to catch any remaining water that might be in line. Some may have a foam insulating washer around water tube remove it first. 4). My Sears-Kenmore was a twist lock water tube have to turn it to left or right depending on brand to remove tube. 5). After removing make sure tube didn't just have water frozen in tube ( that was my problem ) run it under hot water frozen piece will come out. 5). Problem fixed, reverse directions to re-install tube!

I noticed that the two gears weren't meshing together so upon inspection I saw that one of the gears had an inner piece missing making it weak so it kept popping out away from the other great. I ordered the new gear and unscrewed the old one off and put the new one on. So easy. It made Ice beautiful after that

Freezer wouldn't go in to defrost cycle

After some troubleshooting to ensure the thermostat and heating element were working, determined that the defrost timer was the problem. With the defective part, I was able to manually advance the timer to activate the defrost cycle, but it wouldn't do so on its own. Unplugged the refrigerator from the wall. Timer is located in the refrigerator compartment at the very top. The compartment houses the cooling thermostat, the light bulb and the defrost timer. Using 1/4" nut driver, remove 4 screws holding compartment cover to top of fridge. Lower a bit to access electrical wiring. Wiring harness can be unplugged to work on the timer away from the fridge which makes it a bit easier. Timer is mounted with 2 phillips head screws. Remove screws and unplug timer from wiring. Install new timer, plug in wiring, secure with the phillips head screws and remount entire compartment.
