Where is the defrost timer located on Kenmore Refrigerator - Model # 106 8619610?  This is urgent, my once cold beer is now warm!

Ron is correct   .....   On this model Gemline use to make a kit instead of replacing the whole ice maker ............they had this kit where pretty much ya junked the icemaker and it wired in and replaced the  just the timer  .......  but gemline is out  ..........

Supco makes the flex-tray by-pass system now, replaces the ice maker.  What is your box doing??  Is it dead or is the freezer frosted up with ice.  If it is a defrost problem could be the ice maker, defrost heater or the defrost termination thermostat. If it is dead you have to replace the ice maker or get the supco by-pass plug in timer to replace the ice maker.

Thanks to all who responded!  I hate to even admit this but I removed the icemaker the day before the fridge went warm! :shock:  I thought it was too much of a coincidence that removing the icemaker would kill the fridge.  :? Besides, the person helping me swore that he heard the unit running after we finished, so I ass-u-med that something else had failed on the unit.  The silver lining is that every item I diagnosed (thermostat, compressor motor, compressor relay, etc) checked out fine so I was down to the defrost timer!

So in response to what the unit is doing . . . well, nothing.  I do have power to the unit as the interior light is burning.  So I believe the next issue is to find and install the supco by-pass plug as Ron, Appliance Terminator and Pegi suggested.

Sound like I am on the right track to cold beer soon?

On the Supco website www.supco.com , I located a SA1005 Defrost Timer.  Is this what I need?

look at the top of page 56 . . .

Yes, that is exactly what you need....good find!!!!  That flex tray ice maker runs the whole box and has to be in there for the frig to operate.  Put it back in to run the frig till you can get the by-pass system.

RepairClinic the Samurai parts source could get this for you also.

How much did Supco want direct?

RepairClinic $45.92 (unfortunitely not in stock): CLICK HERE

At one place I helped out at they had a template and wiring instruction on replacing the icemaker with a standard 8hr.21min. defrost timer behind the evaporator plate cover.

MadMac, the link you posted will work for you because the last part you looked up is the flextray icemaker eliminator.

Look up a different part# then go back to this link http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp and it will be the last part you looked at.

You must include the RepairClinc part# tag in your link for it to work for others. When you do a part search by part# it brings up the part with this line http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp as the URL. To get the correct URL for others to link to you must click on the part picture then use the complete URL that comes up, in this case for the flextray icemaker eliminator the URL would be: http://www.repaircli...ccPartID=965272

Here's the link that you should use when you direct people to RepairClinc for a perticular part, then Samurai gets the affiliate credit for the sale.

http://www.repaircli...?R=154&N=xxxxxx

where "xxxxxx" is the RepairClinc part# for the part being directed to.
