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.

Make sure you clean the backside of refrigerator at bottom from dust. Make sure you have the recommended clearance from wall. Also make sure the food in freezer and frige have clearance to allow air to circulate around food. Keep playing with your controlls...The dails might be on wrong

Frozen freezer water line


Odds are your temperature is too cold in your freezer. If when you moved you just plugged in your freezer without adjusting your temperate for your new location you accidentally froze whatever water was coming into your freezer.

First you will need a cooler for whatever you have in your freezer, unless you have wonderful neighbors who will let you keep your food in their freezer for couple of days.

Take note to see what your freezer thermostat is set to. Turn off your freezer. Take out all the food. Keep the door open. This would be a great time to clean your freezer. Let the freezer thaw out for at least one day. Check the line to make sure there is no ice. Once everything has melted turn your freezer back on. Turn your freezer back on but this time set the thermostat to three or maybe 4 levels below what you had it set to before.

Finding Freezing level:
Fill an ice cube tray or small plastic cup with water. Put it in your freezer and come back in about three hours to see if has begun to freeze. If it has not begun to ice raise your thermostat to make you freezer colder by half or 1 level. Leave the ice tray or cup of water that you originally placed in the freezer but add another one. Come back in three hours to see if the water has frozen or has begun to freeze.

You want to leave the original water because you need to make sure the new water does not freeze solid as fast as the original water. If it does your freezer is too cold again.

Repeat "Finding Freezing level" until the water begins to freeze but does not freeze solid. Once your ice begins to free you can put your food back into the freezer. Wait a couple of hours more to see how much more your cubes freeze. If they are hollow or still watery in the center you should go up another half level and check on it the next day.

Once your cubes freeze solid you should be all set. If you don't get at least one tray of ice per day from your freezer you could go up another half level so your ice freezes faster.

Be careful about making your freezer colder because you might end up with the same problem you started with depending on how sesitive you thermostat is.

first run the diagnostics on the unit from the tech sheet inside the unit,then if thermistors are bad replace these there are 2 one on the left and one on the right wall in both fridge and freezer,if good per diagnostics then replace the electronic damper door located between the fridge and freezer compartments in the upper left hand corner of the fridge behind the plastic grille as these doors break and jamb open or shut and the temps can no longer be regulated during the diagnostics tests you can hear this door operate if its operating correctly,lastly,if these fail to solve your problem,replace the main control board in the back behind a panel

Frigidaire Model # GLRS267dzw2 ice maker isn't filling up with water too make ice.


As every technician knows , a water and ice dispensor refrig , has a dual water inlet valve . Just because the water dispensor works , does not mean the coil for the ice maker is working . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the frozen cubes , but does not refil with water , check the fill tube inside the freezer , from the wall to the fill cup on the ice maker , to see if it is frozen . If so , replace the dual water inlet valve , due to seeping . This is not closing completely , and letting drips thru , which freeze inside the tube . If the tube is not frozen , then the water inlet valve is bad , not letting water thru to the ice maker .
If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , then the ice maker needs to be replaced . Also check the coils under the refrig , to be sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc , as this will raise the temp above 5 degrees , which is the operating temp , for an icemaker .

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.

Ice Cream and frozen waffles won't freeze.


LOL ! SO in other words in plain english your repair man told you needed a brand new refrigerator - Ok from your description here we can rule out low refrigerant or compressor problems, defrost timer and controlboard issues. I too have waffles and they DO get frozen although not as hard as ice - the less water molecules they have the less they are frozen hard. but nonetheless, my waffles are NOT soft, neither is ice cream

What I would ike you to do is put one of those refrigerator/freezer type thermostats, you can get those round ones, place it in your freezer leave it there 24 hours and look again - Optimal freezer temps is 0F once compression cycles off - if you areusing the extra cold setting, -10F - For refrigerator don't go over 40F - optimal temp of 36-38F.
Another method you can place a bowl of water and use one of those probes and measure the temp of the water in your fridge. If your temps are within safety levels do not worry - your ice is frozen and your frozen food is frozen - Some ice cream tend to be softer, especially the extra creamy type. If your refrigerator has a dial to adjust temps, raise it slightly and wait 24 hours and check your temps again you might need to bump down the temps a bit - if you have a control panel and 2 settings they are usually COLD or COLDER, set it to COLDER and check again - in the COLDER setting your compressor will shut down once your freezer hits -10F that should be quite enough to have even your waffles and extra creamy icecream frozen - if some of the liquids in your refrigerator is too cold or freezes, set it back to COLD or re-adjust the dial. Once you determined that your freezer AND refrigerator are within SAFETY levels as per the food safety guidelines and using the proper methods of testing, then you have nothing to worry about. Make sure your fridge and freezer are not leaking cold air by checking your door gaskets using the famous dollar bill technique by closing the door on the dollar bill and trying to pull it out - if there is no resistence and can easily come out, you have a gasket leak - check in different places on the gasket. As long as you can determine that your freezer and fridge temps are SAFE don't spend a dime ! If your temps are NOT in the safe range you probably have leaky gaskets - if the compressor seems to run all the time, you probably have dirty condenser coils that need to be vacuumed cleaned or dusted off using a condenser brush.

Freezer will not keep foods frozen fridge will not keeep temp.


Sounds like a main control board problem keeping the freezer fan from working . If no air flow to the top of the freezer , the icemaker will stop working and the ice will begin to melt ( leaking from freezer ) . The coils will start to freeze up due to no air flow across them . If continued for a period of time , the cold air could return thru the return vent located in the bottom of the ref/freezer section and freeze the water tank in the refrig section , causing the no water thru dispensor .

Crosley Servidor WCR17/E K3 Top Shelf and Drain Plug Freezes Over


first thing I would suggest is to flush the drain line. defrost any ice in the drain and then flush warm water thru the line until it flows freelyif  your having a hard time getting the line flushed out you may try using a large syringe or turrkey baster filled with warm water to forcfully flush water thru the line. this will most likely fix the problem.
you didnt mention if food was freezing in the refrig as well as the drain but there may be an off chance that the temperature control could be bad. since this is a manual defrost unit it depends on above freezing temps to help keep frost off of the cooling coil. if the temp control goes bad it will allow sub-freezing temps and possible drain freeze ups. so if the drain continues to freeze you will need to replace the temperature control.
if it comes to that, the control actually has a part number on it since maytag cant find your model number.
message me back if you have any further questions. thx peyton

Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice


Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.
