Good Morning,

So the fridge ran all night and I checked this morning and there's a bit of frost on the evap fins/coils and on the lines that I'm thinking contain the coolent. There's also a thin layer of frost on the tstat.

I guess my next question is at what point should the tstat kick off the defrost cycle? I'm curious to know just how much "build up" it allows before it clears the frost off so I can watch it today before putting it all back together again.

Thanks,

NB

go ahead and turn the timer and see if the heater comes on....the timer is what cycles and controls the heater (there are 2 different types but they work like a clock as the compressor runs the timer moves when it reaches the right time  it will shut the box down and if the t-stat is satified  by being at the correct temp then the heater will come on....if the t-stat is bad or freezer isn't cold enough it won't come on) most timers are 6-8-10 or 12 hours timers.....either run/advance when the compressor runs or runs continually

Hi,

Well, I set the timer and the heating element started to work.

I'll send a follow up later in the day to see if the timer kicks off again tonight.

Thanks!

NB

you won't be able to tell if its the timer shutting down for defrost or just the ref. turning off normally, you had already tested the timer the other day and it turned back on so it should be alright, now that the heater has come on I would buckle it back up and leave it alone as eveything should be working right.most excellent fix....congrats

again just make sure the air return is free and clear
