SOURCE: Zanussi Electrolux frost free fridge/freezer - freezer defrosting

My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!

SOURCE: Refrigerator Not Making Ice, Frost in Freezer and Refrigerator Not Cold

It has a defrost problem.  Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer.  Next most common would be the defrost timer.  Third would be the defrost heater.  Let me know if you want to try to test these parts.  If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.

SOURCE: Viking freezer frost build-up

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

SOURCE: freezer cold but not fridge

too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

How do I stop frost/ice from building up in freezer (bottom freezer of French Door Stainless Steel bought in Dec 2011)


Check the door gasket carefully for cracks or other leaks. It is crucial to have a good barrier between the moist room air and the super-dry air inside the box that will quickly suck in the ambient humidity and form frost.

It would be difficult to change the sensor and the heater, and if the defrost cycle is running (and you feel some warmth around the bottom of the box when it is cycling) then the sensor and heater assembly are working and do not need to be replaced. The best practice is to remove any frost buildup at regular intervals and often to prevent a thick buildup that is difficult to remove.

Frost throughout the freezzer compartment


unplug unit and let defrost, if possible overnight,
you can expedite the process with a hair dryer,
the problem is the return air ducts are freezing not letting the air circulate between the freezer and the fridge

FROST AND ALARM LIGHT ON


Your defrost timer, switch or circuit board is probably shot or it would be defrosting.

Use a fridge / freezer thermometer to tell if temperture high (it should be 0 F plus or minus 5 degrees) to determine if it is too high - this is normal if frost builds up but will get worse unless repaired.

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.

Reply back if you would like more info.

The pattern of frost buildup would indicate to me that the freezer door may not be fully closing due to a product on the door or shelve. Frost only on the back wall would indicate a defrost system problem. Frost like snow on product packages indicates air leaking into the freezer in some way.
