Defrost timer has a knob on the side. What is the function of this knob. What happens if I rotate it?
For model number SBI20MW
Hello Michael, thank you for your question. The timer dial controls the duration of each defrost cycle and rotates once every two hours. It is calibrated in in 2 minute increments up to 110 minutes and has a hand set pointer which indicates the length of the cycle in minutes. We hope this helps.

With the freezer not defrosting, the refrigerator got warmer and warmer due to ice building up in the passageway between the two.
I first took a heat gun and melted all the ice on the back wall of the freezer,I had to remove some of the panels in the back of the freezer to get at all the ice buildup,then after taking compressed air to blow out all the "dust bunnies" from underneath and around the compressor, the fan,and all the other components,I replaced the defrost timer,it was located in the lower front of the freezer portion of the unit,that was the easiest part actually. A lot of time was spent on cleanup and melting ice.
