Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
Older style F&P fridge not defrosting
\015 Drip channel below freezer /defrost element freezes up and blocks drainage tube. Water running down to produce bins and freezing up underneath them. Seems like defrosting does take place but not enough to keep drainage channel free of ice\012Have replaced thermostat unit.\012Fridge appeared ok for a few days after doing this until drainage channel froze over again causing above problems to re-appear.\012I had Measured the resistance of heating element whilst I was replacing the thermostat - it was 4k7 ohm-seemed rather high ? I dont know what this value should be . It looks like the heating element is controlled by the thermostat (which is now a new one) so I would have to assume at this stage that the defrost heating element is the culprit for all the above problems.\012Am I right in assuming this?\015
