Hello,
For your first problem i need a bit of a clarification. Is what your saying,when you dispense ice through the door some water also comes out of the dispenser??

For the glow that is perfectly normal,what your seeing is the glow of the defrost heater melting off the biult up frost. If it did not come on and melt the frost the refrig would not be cooling.The term"FROST FREE" is a bit misleading. Their is automatic defrost refrigerators such as the one you have, and the manul defrost that you need to defrost manually every month.

Your problems are exactally the same as mine. I have taken the freezer back panels off and fornd the elements blocked with ice, the upper and lower channels to the fridge are blocked with ice and obviously therefore no0 cold air is going the fridge, I have de-frosted the freezer and put back together and everything works great for 2 weeks when the same thing accurs. My settings for both fridge and freezer are on the lowest possible, but the wife does fill the freezer with too much food! I guess I need an expert in!!

Freezer cold but fridge part struggling admiral hmg19149


Up under the control panel , will be a larger hole with a screw slot up inside . Once you find this hole , insert a screwdriver into the slot ( open the freezer door ) and turn the screwdriver slowly , until the freezer fan cuts off . This piece you are turning , is the defrost timer , and you have turned the refrig into defrost . Remove the food and icemaker ( if equiped ) and remove the rear inside freezer panel , by removing the 4 screws ( 1 on each corner ) . After removing the panel , look below the coils for a red glow (defrost heater ) . If you get the red glow , replace the defrost timer , pt # 68233-3 . ( This is while still in defrost ) . If no red glow , replace the heater ( pt # 61002045 ) and replace the defrost thermostat also ( pt # 61005254 ) The defrost thermostat , cuts the heater off , when defrosted enough , to keep the frozen food from thawing . This piece , a 1 " round cylinder , is clipped on the top of the coils , with 2 wires going to it .

I have an Admiral GS20B6D3EV fridge freezer and am getting a slow intermittent trickle of water from the freezer which is also forming a lot of ice in the bottom of the compartment. Assume it is due to the...


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer

Pull refrig out from the wall and unplug . Remove the 8" x 10 " panel covering the main control board . On this board , unplug the blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it . The sequence looks like this : wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Use a piece of wire , with both ends stripped about 1/4 " , and insert an end into wire2 and wire3 . Plug refrig back in . Look inside the freezer at the back bottom , and see if you see a red glow . It may take about 30 seconds for the glow to appear . If no glow appears , the defrost heater located at the bottom of the coils ( glass tube ) is probably shorted . Pt # WR51X10042 . Also replace the defrost thermostat Pt # WR50X10068 . To access these parts , the inside freezer panel has to be removed . If you do get a red glow , then the main control board is bad Pt # WR55X10656 .

Red glow (from defrost heater?) at bottom of rear panel in freezer


This is from the GE Appliance "Knowledge Database" Web site:

Refrigerator - Explanation Of Red Glow

In a no frost refrigerator, the defrost timer activates defrost heaters in the evaporator section (rear of freezer) which heat up and melt the frost off the evaporator coils. This process lasts for approximately 25-45 minutes and usually happens up to twice a day.

During this time, there will be no running sounds, no fan noise, and you may hear water dripping or sizzling as it hits the heaters. On side by side models, you may even be able to see an orange glow at the bottom of the freezer.

This is normal.

There is a defrost timer that initates defrost for 30mins every 8hours of compressor run time. Take off the thermostat knob and the freezer damper knob, remove light guard. To the right of the thermostat, is the timer advancement screw it is small,and it looks like a plastic cam not a screw. you put the flat blade of a screwdriver and rotate click by click till unit shuts off (you will hear louder click and fans and comp will shut off. Now its in defrost. Wait 5mins open freezer remove lower bin look at drain hole where frost buils you shoud see the heater glowing red melting the frost. If no red glow and no heat from panel. You must go further with the diagnosis.. A solved rating will keep this expert advice coming...........
