Customer Question
How do I defrost...

How do I defrost the freezer on my Thermador T-30? I lost the owner's manual.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model? And have you checked the settings recently?

Make is Thermador and the only info I could find because the refrigator is built into a cabinet and I can't get to the face of the doors. This is what I got off the label on the inside door: T30IF800SP/04 FD 9206 100125.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if I have instructions. I can't beleive that it takes a technician to come out and defrost the freezer.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Yes the freezer door sticks periodically for about five to ten minuste4s probably beuase it needs to be defrosted and reset.

Hello, I am sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet. Are you still needing help with this?

That model is frost free, it should not need defrosting. Is it just icing up on the floor or on the back wall?

It is icing up in both areas.
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay, so it has a component in the defrost circuit that has failed. Do you have a meter to perform any electrical testing with?

my Thermador refrigerator KBURT3651A02 will work fine for 2 to 3 weeks and then moisture will develop in the top of the refrigerator and the temperature in the refrigerator will rise from 37 to 60 degrees. the bottom unit freezer during this time will develop ice over the bottom approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick (thicker on the right hand side if facing the refrigerator) preventing the door from closing properly. a recent service call suggested that part #00143779 and part #00472161 is needed but a prior service suggested that those parts had already been replaced.
