It sounds like the defrost timer is not working. There should be a place by the t-stat with a hole [ may be covered ] where you,ll see a little knob you can turn. Turn this until the unit shuts off. Wait 20 minutes if the unit does not come by on then your timer is bad and needs to be replaced.

Air flow


Sounds like your evaporator is icing up. When the air is flowing over the evaporator it cools and dehumidifies the air. That water from the air will freeze over the evaporator and turn it into an Ice block. There could be many reasons this is happening. First check your air filter, crucial that it gets changed every 2 to 4 months, if its dirty then change it. Other reasons are that the condenser and or evaporator are dirty, could be low on refrigerant. Since you say the airflow is good at the beginning of the cycle then I'd rule out the fan having a problem.

So check your filter first but I highly recommend calling a pro to check the refrigerant level.

Make sure the freezer door is closed
Make sure the water is turned on, a valve on the wall behind the frige.
Make sure the filter is good.

Make sure the indoor filters are clean. The outside unit will continue to run until the indoor reaches the temperature you have selected. Dirty filters can throw the temperature out. Its common for outdoor units to freeze up when on heating mode if the ambient air temperature is below 5 degrees Celcius.. The machine should however, defrost itself. There could be a problem with one of the pipe or air sensors on the outdoor unit.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

NOTE: This

But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.

Hello, I have a Ruud 10 seer unit in the condo i rent...it frequently stops cooling. The fan inside never shuts off, but the unit outside won't come on often enough to cool to the temp on thermostat. When...


It sounds like the air cond is freezing up, and as he melts the ice off he evaporator coil you will have air flow again. When the evaporator, (which is the coil that absorbs the heat from your condo) is frozen over, no air flow can pass through it. The evaporator is located either above the furnace or below the furnace. Therefore, the indoor fan will continue to run, but no cool air will be coming out of the vents. What causes it to freeze up? Usually it is low on refrigerant (some people call it freon). If there is a leak in the system, he may charge it with refrigerant, and then in a few days or weeks later have to thaw it out, and charge it again. If this is the case, you might want to request the leak be located and fixed. Another reason it will freeze up is a dirty filter. Or, if the unit did not have a filter in it for quite some time, the evaporator could possibly be stopped up with dirt resulting in poor air flow all the time and and eventual freeze up of the evaporator. Hope this helps you, stay cool.

My unit keeps freezing. How do I stop it?


First, make sure you have it set at a mid temp. Eventhough the thermostat says it will make ice cubes, it isn't supposed to. The unit should cycle on and off with a room temperature of 70 - 72 degrees.

Secont, make sure that the filter and the insode and outside coild are clean. If they are dirty, wash the filter and gently bruch the coild, being careful not to flaten teh aluminum fins.

If you are handy, take the unit outside, remove the cabbinet (and with it UNPLUGGED), spray it down with a garden hose, running water through both coils. Let it dry fro a few hours, put the cover back on and put it back in the window.

If you still get icing, you probably have a low charge. With the cost of labor, and the price of window units, you'ld be better off replacing it than fixing it, unless you have a local air conditioning school that will do it for cost of materials.

The bottom shelf of my upright freezer is super cold - makes everything freeze ''dried'' and super frozen. Why? Seal is good (it ''sucks'' shut and is hard to open after that) - rest of the freezer freezes...


if you are not getting the desired temp in the freezer with the temp control knob, partially block off a small portion of the vent at the bottom with some tape. You could do the same with the vent at the top, the idea is to create a small air restriction. also if you dont add warm product to the freezer very often it has little heat to remove. you may put a gallon jug of warm water in it periodically.

The lines that are frozen are not ones you can run bleach through. The best way to troubleshoot this one is to first turn off the unit and put it fan only mode to thaw and de-ice the coils. Then check the air filter to be sure that it's clean and that there's nothing blocking the air flow. If the filter is clean then you should check the coils just beyond the filter. Check to be sure that the coils are clean and free of dust and debris. If the coils are clean then you may be low on freon. At this point it does require a certified A/C technician to leak test and charge the system. These are the problems that would cause your unit to freeze up. Hope this helps, good luck!
