Question and Answers

Q:

Four burned out defrost control boards 106.59124801 Kenmore

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand you concern. I added a link to the technical data sheet. Open and reference the PDF file of tech sheet.  Generally when a terminal connection or component on a adaptive defrost control board burns, it's either because of a loose or bad wire connection or a component is pulling too much current/amperage. Current/amperage can be affected by a low voltage supply. Be sure the referigerator is not running on low voltage.  It's not likely the defrost heating element but it's possible. I recommend replacing the heating element and the defrost bi-metal.  Now, depending on which component burnt, it could also be related to the compressor or any other component controlled by the defrost control board. Check and see which wire is burnt and the check the wiring diagram in the link to see which terminal is burnt. As far as a single component burnt on the board, we do not have that type of information as far as to what electrical component it would be related to.

The defrost heater will stay on 21 minutes or until the bi-metal opens.

I hope this helpful.

Thank you for your question. You have received some good information for the manual and I hope it will help you. If the water is constantly under the fridge and toward the back, it may be from the drain pan overfilling, it could be a leak in the pan or it could be a water connection leaking. Pull the unit away from the wall and remove the back panel cover. First disconnect power from the unit. With the cover removed, you will see the connections on the filter housing. Check these connections for a leak. If there is a leak in one of these connections, remove the tube and then reinsert it. I'm attaching a picture with instructions of how this fitting works. If it still leaks, the filter housing may need to be replaced. If the leak is in the front part of the unit, it could be from the dispenser water line connection or tube itself. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

A:

I understand your concern. This refrigerator uses an adaptive defrost control board (ADC). There is no way to program or adjust this board. Defrost boards and timers cannot be adjusted or programmed when to defrost. ADC boards measures the time it takes from the start of a defrost cycle until the defrost terminator opens. It will then determine when the next defrost cycle should most likely start. These time periods will differ.

I do not recommend installing a switch for 2 reasons.

  1. It would be modifying the unit
  2. It could create a defrosting problem and cause the unit to stop cooling.
I hope this helps you. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
