ok im just wondering now when i turn knob up to 9 i dont hear the refrig turn on or run is it because its cooled down already
Appliance Technician: Appliance Tech Larry, Home Appliance tech replied 8 years ago

ok but i defrosted all the frost of before replacing defroster heater it ran as soon as i plugged it back in about 3 hours ago but i dont hear it run now even if i turn up the knob to 9 is everything ok just wondering if its already cooled or what
Appliance Technician: Appliance Tech Larry, Home Appliance tech replied 8 years ago
dont worry about it then ,, it most likely went into defrost and will come back on in a little while by itself
