    how do you know if the refrig is in def mode?

  • Anonymous Mar 02, 2009

    I have frost buildup as well, and the drain at the bottom keeps freezing over, and today I noticed the Ice make and the lights in the freezer side stopped working, I've already called the repairman, but I'm still curious as to the possible causes. I replaced the ice maker about six months ago, everything was working fine until about two weeks ago....

Sounds like the evap is frost up ,ice buildup.Make sure the ref. falls in defrost.If it does the problem could be faulty thermal disc or defrost heater.When the ice build up you will have no air flow and the ref side will be warm.

Why does my refrigerator keep acting up the freezer gets frosted up then the frig gets warm I have cleaned it underneath unplugged it for 24 hours then plugged it back in it works great for about a w


This problem can have many causes, but generally it is a defrost issue. If the freezer coils are frozen over, they block cold air flow to the refrigerator; and can be caused by different part failures. See the link below for a good explanation of possible failures and for parts. Also, if you turn the refrigerator temp to 0ff and unplug the refrigerator then plug it back in, it should go into defrost mode. Leave it that way for 15 or 20 minutes, then unplug and plug it back in. It may resolve the defrost mode problem. If not you'll need a part, or repair man.

bad door seals, frosted up coils, low refrigerant, dirty/clogged condenser coils (under fridge), bad condenser fan. check the fan in the back. clean out the coils with a vacuum under the fridge. see if there is frost on the back wall of the freezer. if there is, you'll have to remove the back wall and defrost the coils with a hair dryer. check the door seals for leaks. replace if necessary. if all is well and still warm, you have a freon leak. call in the pros.

Kenmore 5458 refrigerator too warm. Freezer


It is probely freezing up. The cool comes from the freezer to the ref. side and when it does not defrost it builds up frost or ice and then the air can not get through. Could be a timer or a defrost heater.

There are a lot of possibilitys. You'll have to use the process of elimination.

But it could be the thermostat (make sure your setting is midway) The milk spoiling indicates it is too warm so bacteria is breeding

Get a refrigerator / freezer stand alone thermostat (about $5) That will give you accurate readings. The fridge shoud be between 35 and 40 F and the freezer 0 plus or minus 3 when set correctly

It could be your condensor fan is clogged or just that your coils need cleaning (underneath or behind) Use a vacuum with the brush end or chisel point. Dust can cut you efficiency by 20 or 30% by itself.

Assuming this is frost free model the defrost timer may be acting up in the freezer.

Forgive me for not knowing where the coils are and if it is frost free but I can't find a manual for this particular model. However the principles apply in any case.
