I recently poked a hole into my freezer with a knife


That was not a good idea. I assume you were scraping ice in the freezer. Did it hiss or spit when you did this and quit getting cold. If so you damaged a refrigeration tube. These are normally expensive to repair.

Heaps of frost/ice in freezer: Whirlpool wro34uw


You probably need to fully defrost the freezer. Switch it off for at least 24 hours and collect the water as it defrosts. Do not try to scrape it as it can damage the product. The cracking and poping noises are most likely the product trying to auto defrost. It is probably too iced up for Auto defrost to work which is why you need to fully defrost. Good luck.

My amana bottom freezer was doing that. The fix is to replace the defroster coil and thermostat. Relatively easy just be careful defrosting you can melt the plastic with a hair dryer.

Deepfreeze not working after defrosting


Hello,
I think the problem happened during defrosting. i will tell the important steps that should be done while defrosting. Check whether you done the same steps or not.. If you done the wrong steps kindly contact the Shop where you buyed and tell them to replace with your guaranty(if available).
Here are the steps. Shut off the power to or unplug your freezer. It can't defrost if it's still running. Find the drain hole near the bottom of the freezer and put a plate or towel underneath it to prevent water from getting on the floor. Open the freezer door and remove all the food. Remove any baskets or other removable items from the freezer as well.Take the spatula and scrape away as much ice as you can from the walls of the freezer. This is cold work; I recommend gloves if you have any. After you scrape away as much as you can, use the dust pan and bowl and take out as much of the ice that has accumulated on the bottom of the freezer as possible. Replace the baskets or shelves in the freezer and shut the door. Turn the freezer back on. Put the food back in the freezer in an orderly manner where things can be found when you want them. Put items you hope to use soon in the freezer above your fridge or in a place inside your deep freeze where they will not be forgotten and used soon.Remove all of the excess water from the bottom of the freezer. You may use a kitchen towel for that; squeeze it into the bowl so you don't get water all over the floor. The water will be extremely cold. Once all of the water is gone, wipe down all interior surfaces of the freezer with paper towels. You don't need to use spray cleaner in the freezer unless there is some type of mess that was caused by food spilling.
  • Fill up the large container with warm water. Pour it along areas that still have a lot of ice buildup. Let it sit for a minute or two. Then take the spatula and scrape off any loose ice. The ice is likely to come off in big sheets Once again, remove the ice and water from the bottom of the freezer. Repeat this process until all of the ice is removed from the sides of the freezer.

    Thanks..

    Freezer is icing up. Unit is about 2 yrs old


    You need to check out the back of the freezer. At the current status, it may be locked with ice. Have it defrosted or just have it melted away. Clean the coils and the entire unit. Either the drains were blocked by food debris or dirt causing water to accumulate and ice to form or the thermistor has been iced or is faulty or too much ice accumulated in the unit's coils.

    Kenmore coldspot - How do you remove the ice maker box to clean


    I have the exact same Kenmore and exact same model #77292798. It's the top freezer model with ice maker. Here's what I did:

    Empty everything in the freezer.
    Turn water to ice maker off from source behind unit.
    Remove bottom panel (two screws)
    Every screw in the freezer is the exact same size. I used a screwdriver style socket and, I think
    this works the best.
    Remove ice maker (4 screws) and unplug from socket.
    Remove rear panel (2 screws).

    My freezer was loaded with ice underneath the bottom panel. The ice scraped away easily. There is a tin pan underneath the coils that drains toward the middle where the drain hole is. Again, my freezer was full of ice beneath this tin pan and, I had to scrape away. You may be tempted to try and remove the coil because it would be easier to get to drain hole. I tried this and, it did no good. Don't try it. Once all the ice was scraped away, I realized that the drain hole was plugged with ice. I used boiling hot water and used a squeeze bottle to pour the hot water into the drain hole. I then wrapped a paper towel around a thin screwdriver and used that to soak up the now cold water in the drain hole. After doing this a dozen times or so, the drain finally cleared.

    Then, reassemble. This was a much easier task than I thought it would be and, will take care of it much quicker next time.
