Why the heat exchanger between the freezer section and the fridge section freezes up around the second element closer to the door and makes ice on the roof of the fridge section.


If your freezer is icing up it is the defrost mechanism consisting of the timer, heating element, and defrost thermostat.

When you unplug unit everything melts and it runs fine for a few days till it freezes up again.

Usually it is the heating element that just burns out and has to be replaced.

Why does The freezer side stays cold but the refrigerator side gets warm


Your problem is more than likely a defrost issue. There is ice building up in the freezer coils and when it gets blocked with ice the cold air cant blow into the fresh food section. When you shut it off the ice melts and it gets cold again for a few days. remove the freezer back panel and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. if they check OK then check the defrost timer. It is best to replace all three components at the same time. This way you will be starting out with new components rather than one failing then the other.

Kenmore side by side freezes up about every two weeks. I replaced thermostat and was told that I need a timer. What is a timer and is that what I need?


A DEFORST TIMER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DEFROSTING THE EVAPORATOR .THIS PROCESS TAKES PLACE EVERY 7 TO 8 HOURS..THERE IS A HEATING ELEMENT THAT IS PLACED BESIDE THE EVAPORATOR THE DEFROST TIMER CAUSES THE HEATING ELEMENT TO BECOME RED HOT AND IT IS THIS HEAT THAT MELTS THE FROST IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT.

Freezer drain freezes closed which causes the lower vents to ice over causing the upper part of freezer to heat up.


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Fan in freezer side runs almost all the time,coils are freezing up,timmer is working, allready changed defrost timmer still freezing over.freezer side is working fine. need help........


There is a problem with the defroster circuit. You already mentioned the timer was replaced. You need to consult your manual for a diagram ( or search at applianceparts.com) to see where the defroster thermostat, thermal fuse, and defroster heater itself are located at, or where the wiring is run.

I suspect your thermal fuse / defroster thermostat has failed.

Freezer gets cold, Refrigerator Hot


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is that cold air not getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is not open.
check your control setting. You can't see the door but, you should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side.

2. The fan in the freezer is not working.
You can hear this fan running when you open the freezer.

3. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice which won't let the fan circulate the air over to the Ref side.
This is a failure of the defrost system which consist of the defrost timer, heater, and thermo disc.

Also, If you replaced the evaporator fan then you got a good look at the cooling coils. Look at these coils while it is running. There should be a light coat of frost on all the coils. If this frost line is only 3/4 or 1/2 or any amount less than full coverage of the coils then the system has a coolant leak.

Directly under these coils is the drain pan and drain hole in the middle. This area should be clear of any ice or debris.

Freezer freezes but fridge does not get cool


DO u have frost build up in the freezer ? If so you have a defrost problem.. defrost thermostat, timmer or heaters. You can by-pass the thermostat cut it and tape the wire together and put it into defrost with the timmer by clicking it to the right until it clicks the heater you need to ohm out .. the defrost timmer will be good most of the time if it comes out of defrost ... ref. will start running again when u test the defrost thermostat here is a diagram that may help
