We have a bottom freezer refridgerator that kept having ice build-up in the freezer. We thought it was being caused by people (kids) not fully closing the freezer door. The ice build-up was really thick especially behind the rear cover. i defrosted the freezer about 3 times and it kept happening. We replace the timer (PS2065577) and have not had a problem since. The timer is actually in the refridgerator compartment , but controls the defrost cycle in the freezer.

For the timer, I removed the upper light panel in the refrigerator with a screwdriver and the defrost timer is just plugged in. Easy fix, however most websites were saying it was located down by the kickplate. The thermostat was I think was te real culprit of my problem. I removed the back plate of the freezer after removing the pullout drawers. It just took four screws. The vent/grill just pops out if squeeze it to one side and slide out the other. Then swivel out door. Note that I do not have the ice maker installed in mine so yours may have a another step. I unplugged the refrigerator at this point and grabbed my blow dryer. I melted all the ice that had formed on condenser. The thermostat is located to the right of the fan. Unclip old thermostat and snip wires with enough slack to attach new one. Attach with wire nuts, reclip and start moving in reverse back to the beginning. 7days and no problems!
The part was an exact match to the old one and the instructions from your website were all I needed to complete this repair. My wife thinks I am somewhat of an appliance genius now. Could not have done it without you...thanks
I carefully took the clear plastic piece out of the top of the refrigerator. I removed two screws, unsnapped the white plastic cover and unplugged the old defrost timer and plugged in the new one. I then replaced everything in reverse order.
took out manual to locate area's that needed repair, it was quick and simple .. would like to thank you for your assistance with ordering the part and the follow up's .. I will definately use you again.
Follow your parts diagram, I removed the nut screw from the light in the refrigerator. Removed the light cover. Removed the temperture control knob. Remove the damper control cover. Slid the light assembly forward. Pulled out old defrost timer, replaced with new one. reversed assembly order.
I replaced the timer defroster 2/13 and until today,2/18 the refgr was cooling properly. now there is frost in the freezer and the refgr is not cooling. I will defrost it manually. If anyone has had this problem I would appreciate your help. My email is email@example.com. Thank you.
Removed control knobs cover in refrigerator side of unit using phillips screw driver, unplugged & removed old timer and installed new one in reverse order. Installation was easy and since the article suggested this was is the fix 2/3 of the time, thought I had it made......not! Worked fine for about a week when it did it again! T-Stat is the problem 1/3 of the time and I just ordered that, hope I'm now at a 100 % fix?!
