Kenmore sxs 106.56982602 icing up

4 posts in this topic

Went out on this whirlpool built kenmore sxs that was warm in ff side. Frost on back panel of freezer. Controls are across top of ff side so i dropped it down and found continuity on thermo test plug. Pulled defrost timer style plug and jumped pink to black and defrost heater turned on. Defrosted evap and ordered adc control. Returned a few days later and plugged in new adc. Immeadetly went into defrost. First mistake... I left figuring it woukd terminate and go into cool. Customer called next morning,unit not running. Went over and adc was still in defrost, terminator open. Unplugged and plugged back in and compressor started. Checked ok and left. Customer called today and said ff warm again. Again iced evap,bimetal closed. New adc would not go into defrost either method. Jumped connector and turned on heater to defrost and ordered another adc. Anything i am missing here? Adc part number is W10135901. Unit does not have tech sheet.

If heater comes on and you can't put adc into defrost, then subject to any wiring/connector issues, I agree you must have another bad adc.

Thanks reg for the tech sheet.  If this was mine I would toss in a defrost timer and be done with it but oh well.....
