Gladiator Freezerator wont stay frozen in the bottom portion. It will go to temp when temp is mved, but then start to warm up. Why?


If the bottom freezer section of the Gladiator Freezerator is thawing out the usual cause is from the coils in the back of the top refrigerator section being iced up. The ice blockage prevents the fan from circulating cold air into the bottom freezer section. These units have a design flaw due to the defrost drain freezing up preventing water from draining out from under the coil. The long-term solution is to remove the back wall of the refrigerator section to get to the coil, thoroughly defrost the coil making sure the drain tube is clear, then wrap a couple turns of #12 or #14 copper house wire around the bottom of the defrost heater element and run it a few inches into the drain tube. Advise unplugging the unit when you do this.

I've had this fix on my Gladiator for a couple years and it has been working perfectly ever since. The freezer stays a constant 0 degrees F and no more thawed out food.

Fridge section not cold, freezer section o.k.!


Normally, the cold is only generated in the freezer compartment, and then the cold is pulled or pushed throuch cooling tubes from the freezer section to the refrigerator section. So if your cooling tubes become blocked by ice (usually caused by a defrost circuit failure) then the freezer will seem to work fine but the refrigerator section will not receive the cold air it should.

Suggest you remove the food from the freezer section, then remove the shelves and then the back panel of the freezer. If there is a lot of ice on the evaporator then you should manually defrost the unit. Unplug it from the wall and use a hair dryer to melt the ice. There will be an entrance to a cooling tube right below the evaporator make sure the you keep blowing the hot air from the hair dryer down than tube until you can feel it in the refrigerator section.

If there was ice, you also need to troubleshoot the defrost circuit and find out which component failed. It is normally made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat and defrost timer and troubleshooting methods can be found in the tips section.

NOTE: There will be a lot of water to deal with when you defrost your freezer so make sure you are ready to handle it with buckets and large sponges or a wet/dry vac.

We inherited a Roper refrigerator with the purchase of our house. There is freezing cold water dripping into the refrigerator section from the freezer section. Often times the water will freeze within the...


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer

Dometic 2852 freezer gets cold but refridge does not


If your freezer is getting down close to zero degrees (F) then I doubt that your refrigerant is low. The most common cause of the refrigerator section not getting cool (approximately 40 degrees (f)) is a fan that pulls the coils in the freezer into the refrigerator has failed. A very common failure of a cheep little fan motor. Normally that fan is behind a panel in the freezer section at the bottom. Determine where the cold air in the refrigerator section normally enters and the fan will be above there.

Freezer problems


this particular refrig has only one temperature control which as you know is loated in the refrig section. but temperature isnt your problem. when the icemaker fill tube freezes up like yours has it is generally a sign of a bad icemaker fill valve. the valve seals will go bad and allow water seepage into the line, this seepage will freeze creating a snowball effect freezing the tube. you can use a hair dryer to remove the ice from the tube, and either replace the fill vlave yourself or have it replaced
btw the fill valve is the part that the other end of the fill tube is connected to on the back/bottom of the refrig in the compressor compartment. Good luck and message me back if you have any questions. Thanks Peyton

Ie tube freeze


You may need to balance the distribution of cold air between the freezer and refrigerator section.
The temperature setting influences both and there is normally a control that lets you divide the cooling between the two compartments.
If you don't have one, get an inexpensive (<$5 US) refrigerator thermometer, normally a simple dial-type, and monitor your refrigerator temperature (maybe somewhere in the middle) overnight when not often opened, set the main control to get the temperature between 40-45 degrees F.
Then check the freezer temp.; it should be <10 degrees F (0 is better), then swap back to the fridge to correct the main setting.
Go back and forth until you have both compartments close to the mentioned ranges.

Water inside chefmate refrigerator


Moisture inside the 'fridge condenses on the coolest parts. Most are designed so that the moisture runs down into a channel and is directed out through a small tube somewhere at the back of the compartment, near the bottom.

I would guess that the tube is blocked near the top.

Try finding the tube and carefully inserting something flexible down it to clear the blockage. Don't use anything too rigid, or anything metallic, as these may damage the tube and cause more serious problems. I have done this before using a pipe cleaner.
