Evaporation tube freezes

My Problems with Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator is that the tube running through the freezer to the defrost evaporation tray freezes and water runs into the bottom of the freezer and freezes. On the next defrost cycle water runs through the seal onto the floor.

MY REFRIGERATOR CONSTANTLY RUNS BUT FREEZER DOES NOT FREEZE AND FRIDGE DOES NOT GET COLD. ONLY A LITTLE COLD AIR BLOWS FROM INSIDE OF FREEZER BUT NOT COLD ENOUGH. FRIDGE MOTOR JUST KEEPS RUNNING AND


Can you tell me if there is a layer of frost covering the back panel inside the back of the freezer? Here is a photo of a panel that has frost building because of a defrost problem HERE
Here is a GD5NHAXMB00Parts Manual go to page 16 and item number 6 is the 2303804 User Control and Display Board
acf59332-53e3-438f-a6f7-a0631da1940b.jpg

The board could be the problem causing defrost failure or the W10135091 Electronic Control Board

Sometimes these boards will have burn marks or signs of heat damage but not always. Can you unplug the refrigerator and examine the above board first? It can be found on page 17 and item number 18 Once you have done this and see no problems we will examine the defrost heater 2323198 Defrost Heater

Food freezes in the refrigator


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

My Whirlpool Refrigarator isnt cooling or freezing. Its running but there is no cool air on either side. Ive adjusted the temperature control to the coldest setting but still nothing...what could the...


Pull the lower front panel off. Inside you'll see a round small timer with a screw slot in it. Turn the screw slot slowly to the right (clockwise) only, until you hear a slight click. Wait five minutes and feel the walls of the freezer, they should be getting cold by now. If so, you need a new defrost timer. Thank you, Dana

Ice maker is freezing up


The solenoid valve can leak slightly to make your problem. To check it, undo the tube from the solenoid to the freezer with the solenoid unplugged, and the water pressure on. Any leakage is bad, replace it.

SORRY, YOU NEED A TECHI. THERE. EITHER YOUR TH/STAT IS STICKING OR THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH YOUR AUTO DEFROST UNIT. ALL THINGS TOLD CHECK THAT THE FREEZER OR EVAPORATOR FAN IS RUNNING. IF NOT IT COULD ALSO CAUSE PROBLEMS.
