Over a period of time ice builds up in the drain hole of my upright freezer and eventually covers the bottom of the freezer - which part needs replacing? - the timer or the defrost thermostat - your help is greatly appreciated - thank you
For model number FFU14FC4AW0
Hello Jerry, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Defrost Thermostat, PartSelect Number PS2350702. The best way to do this is to remove the thermostat from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps!

Is there any way to test the timer on my 25322042410 upright freezer? My freezer will not start. The run capacitor checks out using my multimeter using the ohms function and watching the resistance rise from 5m ohms to infinity within a few minutes. Is there anything else besides the timer and capacitor that i should check?
For model number 25322042410
Hello Kevin, thank you for writing. You will also want to check the Evaporator Fan Motor with Wire Harness part number PS2349477 for your model, and the Start Device part number PS11728176. We have some instructions on our website for testing the Timer. Here is a link: https://www.partselect.com/Refrigerator+test-defrost-timer+repair.htm. I hope this helps and good luck with your repair!

Freezer will run fine for a day then it will struggle to stay below freezing. It seems to go through a defrost mode at different times but is still covered in ice and frost. I’ve taken the top panel off to find the coils covered in ice and frost. I’ve cleaned all of this off and defrosted the coils, only for this to happen again in a couple of days. Adjusting the temp doesn’t seem to make a difference. How can i fix this?
For model number Kcbm180fqya

Kenmore elite fridge only, counter depth. Has matching separate freezer unit. Both about 12 years old. After about 1 year of use internal ?Evaporator? Replaced by sears leaking, with fluorescent freon. Fridge got warm today, then cold again. Checked defrost system, thermostat continuity tested in ice water twice on and off and heating tube worked when timer turned manually. Timer part number 216744500 replaceable your site with alternate sub part. Replace timer? Or check something else? Was cold at hour 4 after call. It was in defrost mode (still cold) when i was checking it out about 8 hours after my wife’s panic call. (12 hr timer). She says it turned on while she was emptying it and got cold again.
Hello Sam, thank you for contacting us, In order for us to locate the correct parts and repair information we will require the model number of the unit. Once you have located the model number please feel free to resubmit the question and we will be happy to help you. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

This is the second time asking. You asked for a model number. I’m sorry to say my wife scribed odd the tag info. I seems to have to do with the thermometer or adjustment device. When turned up, fans come on, but quits soon cooling after.
Hello Sam and thank you for writing. Clogged coils can cause poor cooling. Check to make sure nothing is stuck in the condenser fan and that it spins freely (models with coils on the back won't have a fan). To do this, unplug the fridge and pull it out. Clean the fan blades and spin the fan by hand to see if it's stuck. To do more research for you we would need the model number of your unit. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

Not turning on.
For model number FFFH20F2QWC
Hello Luis, thank you for your question. There are a few parts we would recommend testing. Temperature Control Thermostat Part Number: 5304513033, Run Capacitor - 120V Part Number: 297286803, Refrigerator Timer Part Number: 5304518034, Start Device Part Number: 297259515. These parts can be tested with a multi meter to determine if they are faulty. We would recommend testing the start device, and run capacitor first. If those parts are ok, move onto the timer and the thermostat. I hope this helps.

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
After getting wiring diagram off internet it was diagnosed as freezer stuck in defrost mode, temp alarm on, but fan running.
Turned gray knob on defrost timer (located bottom left back of freezer) past defrost position to verify compressor would run...it would not, but fan would run. Tested run capacitor...found borderline defective (weak, wrong value ohm meter kick). Just to be sure, removed interior shelves and interior rear and gasket to check heater at 20 ohms as OK and removed thermostat and verified contact closure after exposure in another freezer....re-installed, hooked heater back up and re-installed interior rear panel. Replaced defrost timer by unplugging 4-pin connector, then removed 2 screws that hold it to the bracket. Installed new one in reverse order. Then removed wire bail holding run capacitor to compressor plug assembly, removed run capacitor, plugged in new one. Turned on freezer......now making ice and holding cold temperature and cycling properly between freeze and defrost modes. Two problems made this repair a bit more difficult. This is the second time that defrost timer has failed...only got 3 years from last one.

Temp alarm sounding and food on top shelves partially thawed
After silencing the alarm, it seemed to be running as normal without any unusual noises, but food was starting to thaw from the top shelf on down and condensation was dripping from the roof. We were able to place most of the food in 2 large ice chests and then the rest in the freezer compartments of 2 fridges we have in the house. I then turned down the temp dial to the coldest setting and let it run for an hour or so; no change.

After researching on the internet, it sounded like our symptoms could be pointing to a defrost timer issue. I pulled the freezer away from the wall, located the timer and used a large screwdriver to slowly advance it. While doing this, at one point I could hear the compressor kick in. I pushed the quick freeze button and let it run for a while. When I checked it in a few hours, the alarm light had gone out and water that I had placed inside was frozen. We took a chance and put the food we placed in the ice chests back in the freezer. Everything was fine several hours later.

I ordered a new defrost timer, it arrived in a couple of days, and replaced the old one with it in a matter of minutes by disconnecting the wire harness from the old timer, removing the 2 screws holding it onto the bracket, screwing the new timer to the bracket, reconnecting the wires harness, and done. It's been a week or so and no problems.

Freezer would over temp and decrease cooling efficiency
One day my freezer's overtemp light/warning came on. I knew the compressor was working properly (as it was still running) and that there were no leaks.

I was able to research about how this freezer worked and learned of this mechanical timer on the back of the freezer. It turns on/off the defrost mode of the freezer.

I manually turned the knob on the back to see if I could get the freezer to defrost. Turns out the timer was no longer working and when I manually ran the defrost, the freezer started to freeze again.

I just replaced this part and my freezer is working like norma.. Simple as all it takes is a few screws and you are done.

Freezer was not cycling and started freezing up around the compressor but was not able to freeze inside the box.
I knew that the problem had to do with the timer so I went online and looked at the schematic diagrams on Partselect and identified the part that should handle the problem. I ordered it and it arrived fairly quickly. It took a Phillips screw driver and about fifteen minutes to remove the old part and replace it with the new one. Very easy repair. It is working as it should now.

Freezer was running too warm
Removed the old defrost timer by removing 4 screws on the holding bracket. Disconnected the wire harness. Reconnected the wire harness to the new part. Installed the new part with 2 screws on the top of the molded bracket. I am a 67 year old woman... easy-peasy. (the defost timer is located in the bottom left rear of the freezer.

Freezer not defrosting
Replaced defrost thermostat and defrost timer on my commercial Kelvinator freezer. Took out screws inside freezer compartment that hold panel at top inside freezer.Once the screws were removed I pulled out the thermostat dial so the panel was free to drop down and expose coils to the freezer that were located in the top rear of the inside freezer compartment.The defrost thermostat was located on the top of the coil to the top left as you face the inside of the Kelvinator KFS220RHY1 freezer. Very easy unplug old and plug in new defrost thermostat. Also replaced timer located in the back side of the freezer down near the middle of the bottom of the freezer near the compressor. There were two nuts holding the timer in the back of the freezer once I took those out I just unplugged the old timer and plugged the new timer in ....very simple fix. I have only run my freezer for a week since I replaced both parts but so far all is working well.

The freezer was not keeping food frozen
I replaced the timer and the defrost thermostat. The defrost thermostat replacement was almost exactly like the training video here. The old part attached slightly differently. The most time consuming part was thawing out the heat exchanger, which was completely covered with ice, inside and out.

Compared to the training video, the timer took more work given its location. It was low to the ground and a bit difficult to get at around the other wires and parts. However, the new part fit perfectly. I just unplugged and unscrewed the old part then reversed those steps with the new one.

Freezer would not run; no electrical power to the compressor
Looking on-line at your diagnostic for this problem, I saw the most common part to cause this problem was the start capacitor, so I purchased one & installed it with no positive outcome. I then purchased the next recommended part which was a defrost timer & installed it with no run again. Frustrated, I looked at another diagnostic web site that claimed 90% of the time the problem is caused by the cold control thermostat. I tested mine and it tested bad, so I bought a control elsewhere, since your site did not list a PN for that device. I installed the new control and the freezer started up correctly. Looking at the wiring diagram for these parts, I see the start capacitor and defrost control are downstream of the cold control thermostat, and to my mind should have been the first part recommended for testing versus the parts I bought, so I am somewhat disappointed in the diagnostics on your site, where I spent about $80 for parts that were functional.
