Manual Defrost Mode 59665932402 Kenmore B/m refrigerator

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your refrigerator. Upon researching model 59665932402:  The best way to manually defrost your refrigerator is to empty it out & unplug it, leaving the doors open. It should be completely defrosted in about 24 hours. Be sure to dump the water out of the drain pan located under the refrigerator.

You misinterpreted my question. This refrigerator has an automatic defrost cycle, which is not working. I want to put it into manual defrost mode to check if the heater is working. I figured out how to put it into manual mode so that "F" and "d" appear in the display. The heater is still not working. I measured resistance across the heater, and get 35 ohms, so I assume it is not the heater. I measured voltage to the heater. When not in manual defrost mode, I am reading 3 volts AC. In manual defrost mode, I am reading 4 volts AC. From what I have read in other posts, I think this means that the control board needs to be replaced. Can you please confirm.

Q:

dryer wont shut off 11096478800

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model 59665932402:  If the dryer starts up as soon as you close the dryer door then you probably have a bad push-to-start switch. That component will not normally cause the dryer to run continuously through the off position but it will cause the dryer to start as soon as the door is closed if it is stuck in the "electrically" closed position and the dryer is set in a cycle to run. I have posted a link of the push to start switch to view the link click here.

hi barb - the second link to searshomeservices.com seems to be broken. i just want to use a voltmeter without blowing the thing up ! i strongly suspect its 120 volts ac but wanted to check to be sure.

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your refrigerator. There is a forced defrost mode for this model that will be better to use for the testing. The image below will provide the information on how to do this. While you are in this mode use a ohm meter to test the connection on the defrost heater. You should be getting about 35K ohms. If you are getting and infinity reading the circuit is open and it needs to be replace. If not then the control is the problem. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

hey thank you very much anneJ - do you know what the voltage is supposed to be? i am betting it supposed to be 120v-ac. and those instructions to go into defrost are a bit misleading since steps one and two are missing. here is how i go into defrost mode: 1) hold down door-light switch 2) press the fridge-down three times BUT HOLD IT ON THE THIRD ONE 3) look for "F d" 4) press fridge-down two more times i should have thought about the ohm-meter across the defrost-element !

The best way to test the defrost heater in with an ohm meter. This more acurate than the voltage, but if you only have a volt meter, then you should be getting the 120 VAC. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

hello - just to recap: i am going to DISCONNECT the two wires going to both sides of the defrost heating element, and make sure i am seeing 120-volt across those two wires (assuming i put the frig into defrost mode. then, if i do, i will check the resistance across the defrost heating element itself, expecting to see some resistance, or at least look for the needle wiggling a little. if i see no voltage with the wires, the problem is in the main controller if i see no resistance across the heating element i need a new heating element if i see both voltage AND i see resistance, i have no business trying to fix it myself and have officially made a fool of myself in a public chat-room.
