Question about Refrigerators
Hi, constantly being having problems with build-up of ice in back of freezer, resulting in having to use hairdryer on regular basis, i today tested the heater using a multi tester and got positive result of 25-30, however there is a plastic tubing containing numerous wires at back of freezer beside the fan, which works fine, however the two wires that connect to the heater(blue/white & black) gave a negative reading, do these wires run to the timer and if so where is it located, so just to clarify the blue/white & black wires that come fitted as standard on the heater are showing a positive reading but two wires that plug into the heater are showing negative reading, any advice would be much appreciated, many thanks Stewart

You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear.
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Could be that, or it could be the temperature sensor on the evaporator - if that goes, then as soon as the freezer starts a defrost cycle, it will think it's got the evaporator hot enough and will start cooling again.
Suggest you let the freezer thaw out then, with a voltmeter connected across the terminals on the board which connect to the sensor, turn the freezer on and see if the sensor reacts sensibly to the evaporator cooling down. It's usually done with a thermistor, but just for the moment, I can't remember whether it's usually a PTC or an NTC.
That way, if it is the sensor, you'll be spared the expense of replacing a serviceable pcb.

There are instructions available to repair this problem at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com. They also sell the part needed to make the repair. Common problem on these refrigerators that were made in about 2005 or later and have the ice bin bucket on the door.
