Question:

Bought the defrost timer thinking it would solve issue freezer bit cool but nothing on fridge side, when i.Put new timer, nothing happens, if i.Put the old one back in u can hear compressor hum, but nothing on fridge side again, could it be thermostat problem also??

Mario for model number ST14CKXKQ01
Answer:

Hi Mario, Thank you for your inquiry. If your fridge and freezer section are too warm, the majority of the time it is the capacitor that fixes the issue. Another part you may have to check is the evaporator fan motor. To verify which part is causing the issue you will need to use a multimeter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The freezer worked but the refrigerator wouldn't cool.

When we got the part, we read the instructions, which were easy and very clear step by step. Taking the old part off took most of the time, it was attached a little differently than was described in the video and the instructions for the part. Once we detached that, the replacement part went in very easily and quickly. It took a short while for the cycle to start, we were actually a little worried that it wasn't going to work. Then it started cycling. After the first day the freezer had started icing up, we took a blow dryer and melted it and waited. It hasn't started freezing up again. The refrigerator is keeping the proper temperature and the freezer is also working properly, it's been a week. We seem to be obsessed with going out and checking to see if it's working but I think it's a success. Doing this ourselves only cost $26.00. A huge savings if we had hired someone else to repair it for us. We will definitely choose this option with any other appliance that needs repair. It was easy and simple to find the correct part thanks to the website. And the video tutorial was very informative and helpful.

Either to cold or not cooling. Then it would not kick on.

I did a little homework and decided that it had to be one of two parts. I purchased both parts and installed them. The tricky part was gaining access to the components. I snapped the front panel off and there were the screws. Voila, down hill from here. Read the instructions on the defrost timer assy. and installed new parts. Problem fixed.

I did find the parts later at another site a little less expensive but not with the support provided here. And delivery was fast. Repair cost was less than 100.00 so I am not complaining. Thanks !!

Refrigerator was freezing up and not cooling fresh food compartment

The repair was easy, I removed the cover on the top front of the fresh food compartment. It housed the defrost timer which was easy to identify and replace. Just removed a screw, unplugged the wires and replaced with the new part. Unfortunately, that wasn't the only problem. I also had to replace the defrost element that the timer sent power to. While I was at it, I replaced the defroster thermostat. The entire repair took under an hour, diagnosing the problem took the most time and effort.

I found that frost was accumilating in the freezer

Ordered a defrost timer kit and a Bimetal defrost thermostat clip. I matched the wires but first I unplugged the frig.I cut the two wires on the Bimetal defrost and added the two connectors. All's well that ends well.Problem solved.

Refrigeration section not cooling

I replaced the defrost timer. Not very difficult. At first, the new part did not make a difference. After about 48 hours, the temp in the refrig section began to drop. It got down to 30 degrees so I raised the temp. I also put more items in the refrig and after a few hours, the temp rose to 40 degrees and I have not been able to get the temp off that number. Any suggestions?

Noisy defrost timer

Part # had been replaced with another timer. Original timer had 2 wires coming out of it. Replacement only had 1 wire. Instructions showed 2 options for where to place the wire. I chose option 2 and I guess I was right. Installation took less than 15 minutes and refridge is back to normal. (Quiet)
