Question and Answers

Q:

defrost 59671812101 Kenmore Bottom mount refrigerator

A:

Thanks for the information about your refrigerator model 596.71812101; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you.  Your refrigerator does not have a sensor per say , it uses a defrost bi-metal or thermostat. This thermostat is mounted on the evaporator coil as is the defrost heater. The main control for defrosting is a defrost timer that is mounted under the front behind the toe plate. You can advance it to a defrost mode by using a flat blade screwdriver and turn the cam clockwise until the unit shuts down (that is the defrost cycle) and the heater will come on if the bimetal is cold enough and the heater is good. If the heater does come on by forcing the defrost cycle then the timer is bad and needs replacing.

Thanks for the question about checking the defrost timer on your refrigerator.
The defrost timer is located on the back of the refrigerator in the machine compartment. Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product
With unit unplugged remove the two screws hold the timer in place, isolate the timer (do not unplug wire harness form timer) Plug refrigerator back in (being sure that no wires are touching and that you do not touch the other components) use a flat blade screwdriver and advance the timer until it clicks and the compressor stops running.
It should now be in the defrost mode and the heater on evaporator coil should begin to heat up. set the time in a safe area (a as wires permit) and observe. The defrost cycle should last about 15 minutes give or take a few minutes. When the cycle has completed (allow up to 30 min) the timer should automatically bring the unit back on (compressor and fans run).
If this happens then the timer motor is operating properly and if it does not bring the components back on the timer is bad. Replace timer and reassemble back cover.
I hope this helps, answer your question, should you need additional assistance reply with more details and I will be happy to respond.

Thanks Ron H.
