The defrost thermostat is the most common issue in such refrigerators. So, my answer is yes.

Does this kind of model doesn't have a defrost timer? If none, what is the best way to check the problem?

Thank you in advance helping me.
There is no defrost timer in your refrigerator. The defrost cycle operates by the control board (#6 on the diagram).

You can force the defrost following the instructions attached to the reply.



- The electronic control board Part number: AP5177497

Part number: AP5177497


- The defrost heater Part number: AP2990875

Part number: AP2990875



- The defrost thermostat Part number: AP3108445

Part number: AP3108445

This fan should run wherever the compressor is running with the speed a little over 1000 rpm.

The coils must be clean for good performance.

I just checked...the compressor is running, but the fan is barely turning. Does that mean the problem is with the fan? Sometimes if we force it to spin it starts running.

The fan is the culprit. No doubt about it. The compressor is overheated and can be damaged any time. So, turn the refrigerator off and keep it off until the new fan installed. You can try to use a good floor fan to cool down the compressor as a temporary solution.

Default Thermostat bad AGAIN!

I had this exact problem back in '08, the fridge was 8 years old at that time. I replaced the thermostat with your Part # AP3861719 and it worked fine for 3 years. Yesterday the thermostat failed again. Is there some underlying issue that may be causing the thermostat to fail?

Nothing but poor quality. 15 years ago I never saw defective parts out of the box!

Default Better quality parts?

Thanks for the quick reply Gene. Quality of the replacement part was my main concern, and the reason for my query. It doesn't make much sense to buy the same exact part again if I am going to have to go through this again in a couple of years. Do you have any suggestions as to finding a higher quality replacement? I don't mind paying more $$ if it means I don't have to empty out my freezer again in 2 years!
