Hi, this is gil1714 in Scotland. how to defrost freezer cda cw186.
lost instructions? try getting the user manual online and print it.
just enter the make and model on google and choose best info. in
the meantime extract contents and wrap in blankets/duvets to keep cold. open door and push defrost button or switch unit off at mains plug. use appropriate containers and towels to catch melt water .
you may use a hairdryer or fan heater to speed this process but don't get them too close to the plastic bits. if using the defrost button it should auto-reset, if it switches back on too soon, switch off at mains. leave for half hour after defrosting, switch back on and restock. Hope this is helpful . gil

Fridge freezer warm 2touch on outside and water lying in bottom of fride

1. Defrost timer failed, check to see if it is running at all over a half hour. If not, look into the defrost timer. This also drives a heater around the door.

2. Door not closing fully.

Where is the defrost button on the Samsung fridge on top freezer on bottom type fridge? Mine keeps freezing on the back wall.

What is the model number? You have a defrost heater, defrost thermostat or a defrost control that is defective. There is no defrost button to press. You will need to replace or have someone help you replace the defective part or parts. I am here to help you find out what is going on and help you get the parts you need and even tell you how to do this if you are comfortable with doing this with my assistance. You can begin by removing items from your freezer and using a hair dryer or a 5 gallon bucket of very hot water and then place the water inside the freezer compartment for two to three hours or until all the ice melts. Be aware that if ice has built up on the rear wall of your freezer there will be much more behind that rear wall and this water will leak onto the floor if you are not there to use a towel to clean the water up. Here is a photo of what the ice behind the rear wall may look like should the defrost components be defective=> HERE (Defrosting like the above instructions can last up to a week depending on how much the doors are opened giving you time to get the parts and install them) Let me know what you have and I am here to help you if you like, Thanks Sea Breeze

My freezer has an ice build up. The drawers are frozen and will not move. I tried defrosting it and cleaning it and the ice built up again.

OK most refrigerators have 3 parts that operate the defrost and if even one of these parts fail you end up with the no defrost conditions. I cannot find any photos of the defrost heater but can show you the location in this photo description=> MFI2568AEW_Freezer_Section_Parts_Breakdown Looking at that photo shows each part numbered and part listed as 17 is the defrost heater part number=> 67006386 Heating Element or here=> 67006386 Heater also in that photo is the defrost thermostat=> 67006387 Defrost Thermostat or here=> 67006387 Thermostat like before there are no photos. Click=> Defrost Heater and Defrost Thermostat Instructions removal and re-install Instructions How to test a defrost heater click=> Here Now the first thing I want you to do is Force defrost is performed by using your Freezer Display and Refrigerator keypad. Enter the Forced defrost Mode by performing the following sequence of events.
1 Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad button.
2 Press and hold the Refrigerator Temperature Keypad - minus sign
3 Release the Door Alarm Keypad and wait 3 seconds. Fd appears in the Freezer Display
4 Press the Refrigerator Down Keypad - minus sign Again. Sh should appear in the right display
5 Press again to Force Defrost Fd and Sh will flash in display indicating unit is in defrost.
If you have any problems please let me know here or on my websites HERE Thanks Sea Breeze

this sounds like a defrost timer issue possibly a bad defrost heater is also involed,what was done the first time seems like it needs to be done again.some thing is not telling it to go into a defrost mode may be a sensor issue as well. good luck with this problem

Magic Chef refridgerator with small built in freezer model#MCBR 980W. Defrosting instructions unclear; red button suppose to be pushed in for defrosting the small freezer, How is it suppose to actually...

I just defrosted my cooler and looked at the manual. It says that you should do it when the ice is only a 1/4 inch thick. Then it will do it without any effort. Well of course i waited till it was about 1 1/2 inches thick. The defrost button does help though. i pushed it and waited 3 hours and that loosened up the ice around the box. Then used an ice pick, flat head skrew driver, and a painters 5 in 1 tool. I cleaned the inside of the freezer fairly eaisly and let the rest of the defrost process clean the top and the sides of the box which i couldn't reach.

I do not know how to defrost my freezer Model MQU165BEW

There are no buttons to defrost your freezer except the off button. The unit is a self defrost. If it is freezing up then one of the defrost components have malfunctioned.

Hotpoint future RFA60 Fidge Freezer

GE Monogram Side by Side 42" Freezer light is lit on front panel.

The defrost timer is what I think you are asking. It is behind a cover near the light, The timer puts the fridge in defrost ever 6 to 8 hours. If the timer is bad it will stop the cycle of defrost and cause the freezer and the cold food section to warm spoiling the food and increase the freezer temp. Try turning the timer screw clockwise until you hear the fridge compressor stop. If after this listen for a crackling noise that will be the sound of defrost taking place. If doing this starts defrost, you will need to replace the timer.
