SOURCE: frost forms in freezer, blocking vents so temp in both freezer and fridge is warmer than normal

You have an issue with the defrost system, either the timer, thermostat or heating element. Probably the defrost timer refer to the manual to find it. If you don't have the manual check the makers web site for a parts breakdown. You should be able to put it into defrost manually by turning the knob and see if that helps. You may need to do this sevral times as it only stays in defrost for a little over twnety minutes and run cycle for 6,8 or ten hours. If the ice build up is heavy then twenty minutes may not do the trick thus the need for repated defrost cycles. If it does the trick replace the timer. If not check the thermostat and heater element.

Maytag msd2641kew fridge side is not cooling its warm . freezer is still cold notice some of the ice look like it was starting to melt a litte. turned freezer up acouple of hours ago stuff is staying...


Sounds like a defrost problem, is there ice on the back wall of the freezer? If so the defrost system has failed. The most common repair is a Part# 67004757 defrost thermostat and adaptive defrost board Part# 67004704. Even with the parts in your hand, you will need to de-ice the freezer to replace the thermostat in the freezer section, then unplug unit to replace the adaptive defrost board located in the controls of the refrigerator section. Normally it can take about an hour to complete.
Good Luck

Freezer has massive ice build up, refrigerator not cooling , no cold air thru chute


Possible that the auto defrost timer is not working and so the massive frost build up. This prevents the air to flow from vent to the fridge.
The auto frost must work on a determined setting of the timer cycle as the frost must clear so that the whole fridge is efficient.
So check the timerr which is normally placed in the rear bottom and is connected to the heater and is also inline with the thermostat.

This is s top freezer type. the bottom door was left ajar for several days. freezer seems to get cold but the bottom doesnt get cold.


Shiut down the fridge and let the fridge defrost off maybe about 8 hours. When the door was left open there could have been frost build up in the evaporator and blocked the vents.
So once the frost has been cleared off the fridge can be switched on to perform well.

Freezer works ok fan works in freezer ok but. fridge is to hot. no air coming through vents


It is quite possible that your air vent from the freezer is blocked by frost and hence the fan is choked to give out any space for air. So put the fridge off and remove the freezer panels to inspect. If you notice frost in the cooling coils then you are sure that the auto defrost is not working.Allow time for the frost to clear, check the wiring to heater/ to the timer . Switch on and check for the timer to cut off or otherwise replace. If there was no frost and still the air was not blowing check the direction of the fan, if not clear the vent . Check also if there is any malfunction of the defrosting heater getting switched on, If so replace the relay/timer unit.
This can be the only reason but I expect you try this out and check accordingly. Good day.

Have kenmore refig model 59671103101 refrig temperature to low. light work, fans run freezer works good. Cleaned vents & coils ?


if the freezer is fine, check for air flow to fridge. if you get none, see if there is any frost on the back wall of the freezer. if there is some frost, the coils are iced up and need thawing. if there is no frost, there may be an obstruction in the vent. also may be thermostat in fridge- it opens and closes the vent from the freezer.

Refrigerator will not cool . the freezer is freezing but it seems to be building up frost.


You have an auto-defrost issue. Cooling the fridg side comes from the freezer side. If you see frost on the inside back of the freezer side, it's clogging the cooling vent to the fridge side. You need to have the defrost parts replaced. Parts cost less than $50. Installation is around $250.

Our LG GR359SQ Fridge Freezer, the fridge has stopped cooling. Everything else seems to still work, freezer, lights etc. But the fridge is warm. Any thoughts?


Make sure the the evaporator fan is running and circulation is getting to the fridge side. Remove anything that could be blocking the vent that brings in the air from the freezer to the fridge. Make sure that no frost is building up in the back of the freezer. If there is frost, then the timer can be going bad.

Freezer not freezing enough and fridge not cold enough


Hello Scott, remove the food from the freezer side and remove the rear freezer panel. You will see a coil and it should be completely frosted over. If not then you have a sealed system issue. If it is froze solid in frost where you cannot even see the coil, then you have a defrost issue. You should have a little frost on all the coil, the defrost is what clears the frost so the evap fan motor can circulate the air thru out the unit. If frost is good, push the light door switch to start the fan. If it isn't running check for 120 volts. If it has voltage, but not running, replace the motor. Hope this helps.
