Kenmore Elite SxS 106.4419300 how to check the defrost system
Posted 11 July 2012 - 06:14 AM
Can I get some tips on how to check the defrost thermostat:
Or the main board:
I'm assuming it's got to be one of those two. Can someone tell me how put the unit into defrost mode or diagnostic mode so I know which parts has failed?
Many thanks in advance !

no tech sheet,
but from (maybe similar) GC1SHAXMQ00 service manual
Defrost can be initiated by disconnecting and reconnecting power.
Main control board will attempt to initiate defrost upon restart:
• If bimetal is closed, defrost cycle will start.
Relay on main control board will click one time.
• If bimetal or defrost circuit is open, defrost cycle will not start, and the cooling cycle will begin.
Relay on main control board will click twice
(once to initiate defrost and the second time to switch back to cooling).
there's also a Fuse inside the Defrost Thermostat
