Drain stopped up.
Take out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look at the back wall and you should get a partial view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly below these coils is the drain area. You may need a light to see the drain hole. If this area is covered with ice then a hair dryer will help clear this so you can see the drain hole.
I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain to clear any cloggs. Also, I seal the top of the drain hole around the O2 tubing with tape and use the air from my lungs to clear the drain tube. Pour a little water down this drain hole to make sure it’s clear.

Water dispenser line frozen, items freezing in fridge side. Freezer constantly running/blowing


Your freezer is what actually cools the refrigerator. The cool air enters from that spot on the top left of the freezer. Make sure that isn't blocked. It's sounds like the thermostat that controls the air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator isn't working or the air flow control device is stuck.

Either way if you can, unload and unplug the unit. This will do to things. First it will reset the circuits that control everything and secondly if the air flow control is frozen thawing out the refrigerator and freezer may free it up.

Freezer stopped making ice and now coils in bottom of freezer r freezing up..this is a side by side refrigerator


shut off motors .....let it completely defrost,,,restart the fridge and STOP PACKING IT SO FULL allowing air to flow . if air can't flow freely, the ice maker stops and the freezer frosts up ,...causing the refrigerator side to not cool as well as it should.

the freezer side only works within certain parameters.

Both the Freezer and the Refridgerator quit working...


Do you have ice build up on the back wall in the freezer? If so you have whats called a defrost problem. (can be timmer, adc, heating element or thermostat)... All cold air in you fridge side come from the freezer, therefore if you have ice build up behind back wall in freezer it is blocking air flow....
