Default Defrost timer help
Model Number: ET1MTKXKQ02   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

I installed the defrost timer. I hear it running, but the refrig hasn't gone on yet. The timer must have been in defrost mode. Do I wait for it to kick in or advance it?

How long have you waited?
The defrost cycle should be no longer than half an hour.

If you have to force it out of defrost then you have a problem.
