My refrigerator got warm, stopped making ice and I could see the coils were frozen over

This is the easiest repair to perform, figuring out what was wrong took a little longer. I have the bottom freezer Amana refrigerator and the defrost timer is just behind the bottom front grill, removing four screws and plugging in the new timer took maybe 15 minutes. To find out what was not working correctly I removed the panel covering the coils in the freezer and it was totally frozen up, this is why it stopped making ice and wasn't keeping things cold. I defrosted the coils and checked the resistance of the heater to make sure it was working, it was fine so it was the defrost timer.

Ice build up in freezer/constantly running

Since I wasn't sure if it was the bimetal thermostat or timer, I purchased both. After reading the comments of other repairer's, the price of both parts was worth the work of defrosting the freezer twice.I unplugged the refrigerator and removed the ice buildup in the freezer. I removed the trays and rear panel (7 screws). I had to remove the ice on the condenser (a hair dryer works perfectly). The thermostat came off easily, just unsnaps. Like others, I had to cut 1 wire, solder and tape the old end terminal to match the wiring. I relpaced the panel and trays. I then removed the timer housing 2 screws and the timer 2 screws. The timer was an exact replacement. Just unplug the old and plug in the new. The only rough part was the bottom housing screw. The bottom frame was in the way but with a little wiggling and bending I was able to remove it. Its been over a week and everything is working great.(the unit is even running less now). I know I saved a lot of money doing the repair myself. The repair stories were very helpfull. I will go to your site for other repairs and parts. Susan Staten Island, New York

Freezer was 40 degrees

Past experiences told me it was the defrost timer. Turned the timer wheel, the compressor came on and that told me the timer wasn't working correctly. I ordered the timer and put it in.

Elderly neighbor"s refridgerator would not defrost

I ordered the defrost timer and then read a couple of repair history stories. The timer was fairly easy to install. Then I advanced the small knob until I felt a "click". The covers were reinstalled inside the freezer. And the appliance is normal. Plug and Play. I learned that the timer is for the activation of a heater in or under the freezer"s aluminum fin assembly. Alot of folks don"t know that a refrigerator gets it"s supply of cold air from the freezing compartment. Everybody is happy. Thanks
