Refrigerator Cleaning Tips

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

Clean the tray under the refrigerator with a bleach solution and sprinkle with salt every six months.

The tray is a veritable mold magnet. Adding salt reduces the growth of mold and bacteria. Also, clean under the fridge occasionally; food can become trapped there, become moldy, and the mold spores are blown into the kitchen air every time the compressor kicks in.

Also be sure to vacuum out the coils at the bottom of the refrigerator at least once a year, more often if you have pets. Keeping the coils clean will help it run more efficient and extend the life of the compressor.

About a Refrigerator Defrost System

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

 

Defrost Timer System (Mechanical Timer)

Every 8 hours of compressor run time defrost timer activates radiant electric defrost heater suspended from evaporator. After about 20-30 minutes (depending on the timer used) of defrost cycle time, timer restores circuit to compressor.

Defrost terminator (thermostat) is wired in series with defrost heater. Terminator opens and breaks circuit when preset high temperature is reached. After defrost thermostat opens, thermostat remains open until end of defrost cycle when cooling cycle starts and terminator senses present low temperature and closes.

Defrost heater is suspended from the evaporator coil across the bottom to keep defrost drain free flowing during defrost. Defrost water is caught in trough under evaporator coil and flows through drain hole in liner and drain tubing into drain pan. Air circulated by condenser fan over pan evaporates water.

 

Adaptive Defrost System (Electronic Control Board)

The ADC adapts the compressor run time between defrosts to achieve optimum defrost intervals by monitoring the cold control and length the defrost heater is on.

GE PSC23NSWA Refrigerator Ice Maker Not Working.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

Friday afternoon I got a call on a GE PSC23NSWA Refrigerator that had a ice maker that was no longer working. The ice maker would fill with water and freeze the water, but the ice maker would then just sit there with frozen water in it.

To repair it I replaced the ice maker, part # WR30X10093

To remove the old ice maker I simply had to remove two screws and unplug it from the freezer.

Refrigerator Water Line Connection

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

 

Before connecting the water to the refrigerator, be sure the water is turned off and the refrigerator is unplugged.

Connect the water line to the water valve on the back of the refrigerator. The connection is a standard 1/4 inch fitting that will accept either a compression fitting or one of the many braided, reinforced hoses available for this purpose at most hardware stores.
