Have to do some research on where his timer is. Doing some troubleshooting meanwhile.

Could use the experience around refrigerators so I handling him for free.
Have a deep freeze home that might hit the dump cuz i fed up of it and fed up of local parts. Bought a whole board to wire up and bypass everything the fridge has!

Well I thought the compressor was a goner in the fridge home. Changed it and it wasn't the problem. So I have changed everything in that deep freeze at home and it still dont work. I gut it and bought a board (already programmed) to run it. Local parts are luck and chance.

So I have a working compressor and an extra board. What you think gunna happen? Beer cooler for recreational use by TTPS and customs :twisted: :mrgreen: :drinking: 0X

Some of those ice machines you see all over have a flaw (if it is built by the same guy whose machines I worked on). I building one for free to give away and see if it has the same flaw. :angel:

This statement really makes things difficult for people who are actually smart....... I prefer to call them schemers. Thumbs up on doing the repair yourself..... that's the best way to deal with them IMHO!

This should be a simple repair, YouTube is your friend, no need to buy another fridge unless it has other issues or you just want another fridge.

i tried youtube. i opened the freezer and the coil iced up so it could be the heater or some sensor. i "washed" out the coil with some warm to hot water to quickly melt the ice an plugged it back in, now i waiting to see what will happen. its a consol fridge about 12 years old. where would have parts for this in the event i have to change the sensor ?

reliable appliance parts or parts world for parts.timers can get stuck sometimes and defrost thermostats can operate erratically sometimes.

it cool somewhat but still not properly. i will leave it overnight to see how cold it will be in the morning. thanks for the info above but it sounds like a lot of work. i didnt see much when i melted the ice. if it ice up again i will take a pic an post it. hopefully the quarantine is lifted on the 31st.

No frost fridges have a defrost cycle which consists mainly a heating element controlled by a timer and a thermostat. In your case you most likely have a mechanical timer. You will need a multimeter to check the element. The defrost thermostat is a little bit harder since you need to put it in ice cold water to check it. There are universal thermostats for about $75 so getting that part is not a problem, I would just get one and change it and see if things get better, you would only lose $75 and some time.
