Hello, actually my Maytag refrigerator is 22 cu ft. bottom -mount freezer. I'm pretty sure my freezer is the frost less kind but it has started getting frost and almost snow in it. I was just wondering...


Hello
Any freezer will accumulate frost on walls etc, eventually.Mostly in the summer when there's more moist air and door openings. The fan is supposed draw all moisture to the evaporator coils so you won[t get the frost , So if it is excessive check to make sure refridgerator compartment is keeping cold.If it seems warm to you,you probably have defrost issues.
If ok ,then check door gaskets for air leaks ,(excess moist air gets in).Or excess food ,especially at bottom might block some air flow.

regards

Freezer builds up with frost about every 60-75 days. have to empty the freezer and allow to thaw for a few hours


I think I can assume the freezer isn't a "frost-free".
A short physics lesson; hot air holds more moisture than cold air; hot air will flow from a warm area to a colder area, and the colder area will cause the moisture to condensate and freeze(if colder area below freezing, as a freezer should be), causing frost build up.The more often the freezer is opened, the more frost will build up.
Now for 3 possibilities:1) If it is a self-defrosting type, check your defrost timer control...not working, or not working often enough.2) Door seals damaged and need replacement.3)Make the kids stay out of freezer.

The display will stay on normal for about 5 min and then give me a Er FF. What to do?


problem may be the main pcb or evaporator fan motor. this unit has several problems. if the model# starts with a 795 it was made by LG. the er ff code is caused most of the time from frost building up around fan motor. this can also be caused by freezer liner sagging at the top of freezer causing frost build up, sears has a service flash for this that is covered by the manufacture. service flash sf46-512. iwould call sears and find out if your model is on this service flash.

The refrigerator will not stay cold. The freezer gets as cold as 44 degrees.


I believe you most likely have a defrost problem. Look inside rear of freezer and see if there is a lay of frost building up on rear wall or floor, depending on what model you have it could most likely be the defrost timer or adaptive defrost. I need your Sears number that looks like this foe example 231.56489 on the bottom of fresh food door frame behind door seal and near floor kick plate. Your next most likely reasons will be defrost heater or defrost thermostat. If you find frost I want you to unplug and begin manual defrost. Remove rear panel of freezer after unplugging and use a hair dryer. That will give you a little time to see the problem and get answers to repair them, Sea Breeze

Model gss25wg. 5 years old. Worked fine when we got it home. Now


Try to remove rear wall of freezer to check frost pattern. An even but light patter of frost on full coil is normal. Coils full of frost with aluminum almost fully hidden generally means defrost problem. Heavier frost on the bottom coils and gradually tapering off as you go up until the top coils have no frost usually means a leak of freon or a bad compressor.

Freezer works, frig does not. Also ice build up in freezer coil


I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.

Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.
