Default Anybody got a schematic for my fridge

model gb2fhdxwq02?
The exploded view is online but no schematic that I could find.

It takes two weeks for a layer of ice to form in the freezer so I will be pulling it out from the wall and looking for a schematic on the inside of a panel, but it'd help if I had one beforehand.

Shouldn't this be in appliances?

If it is not there ... Here is a lead from SEARS Customer Assistance:

I am sorry; we do not have the wiring diagram available online. Do not worry, I would suggest you to contact our technical team at 800-4MyHome to locate the wiring diagram.

Working hours: M-F 5:00 am - 11:00pm Sat-Sun 7:00am - 8:00pm.

So the freezer isn't cold enough. Defrost system not working.(defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer or control module) Circulating fan not working. Low on freon.

Thanks, folks. . . I printed out this last link.

IIRC, I called the Whirlpool people about a schematic and they evaded the question. They may not want to incur liability by enabling me to work inside the fridge or they just may not like DIYers.

And Trible's had only a generic fridge manual.

My wife's going overseas shortly so I'll wait till then and load everything I haven't already eaten into the downstairs fridge before I start messing with this thing.

For my BG55 Stihl leaf blower they absolutely would not sell me a factory manual but a guy who worked for a rental place told me to clean out the jet. I finally bought a new $3 jet and we'll see very soon how well it works - the leaves are left over from last fall.

Is there a vacuum release valve somewhere that's bad?
We've never had a fridge like this and I can't remember if it did this from day one.
I can't imagine why, firstly, there is a vacuum, and then why it releases. Something is equalizing the outside and inside pressure but what would it be?

With a door area of two or three sq ft. this doesn't have to be much of a pressure difference.

my two door fridge does the same thing, I think it is just the fan running that does it.

I sort of recall seeing a schematic (on older fridges) on the back of the unit. Not a promise, just a thought.
