refridgerator defrost doesnt work
whirlpool refrigerator gx2shbxvb03
Hello Ron my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service.I am sorry for the delay, I had to make sure I had a sheet for your model. Have you tried a forced defrost to see if the heater would come on?Thanks,Barry
I don't know how to force a defrost.
I just plugged the fridge back in , waited for the coils to frost up and waited for 15 min. watching the wet spots on the element hoping they would dry up when the element fired up
I don't know how to force the defrost?
sorry for the repetion. The website is acting up
this unit is a french door style with 2 door light switches. Guess I close both
Program worked. I actually have the freezer all back together. That being said if the defrost was working I would have heard the water drops sizzling on the element. (I've had the same problem on a previous fridge with a spring coil in a glass tube element) Easy to see the break there!
There was a little frost on the back wall. None on the food. The problem became apparent when the fridge section was getting warm.
The coils were full of frost with a good ice block on the lines leading into the coils
Yes the heater seems to be good.
HOw often is it supposed to kick in?
I gotta say this is an awesome service. I was a little skeptical. But I thought hey 30 bucks give it a try.
