Defrost system failure.

Defrost system: Freezer fan, Defrost timer, Heater, Thermostat. If any one of these are bad the coils in the freezer will get clogged with ice and not allow the cold air to circulate over to the ref. side.

Ice/frost build up on the back wall of the freezer is an indication of this problem. You can manually defrost with a hair dryer which will give you a couple of days before it starts iceing up again. Remember, the ice you see on the back wall is just the tip of the iceburg, there is a lot more on the coils behind that wall.

Door seal on my Frigedaire sise by side gets hot, what is wrong?

I had this once with a Fridigare GLRS267ZAQ4 side by side but it was also heating up water and the freezer wasn't working very well.

My problem was that the coils and condenser in the back bottom of this unit needed a major cleaning and the fan wasn't working very well. Cheap to buy that part and replace yourself. This problem was causing this unit to heat up everywhere because the coils and compressor were not being cooled properly.

I have often found this unit to get ice build up in the back inside wall and had to take a hair dryer to it in order to melt the ice. This mostly caused problems with the ice dispenser and freezer getting warm.

Right now I am having a problem with my refrigerator not cooling well but the freezer is fine. Guess I'll try to defrost the ice and check the coils again.

Hope this helps!

Freezer works but refrigerated sise does not cool

check that the evaporator fan is running or for frost covering the back of the freezer. If the freezer has frost at the back it it is a defrost problem. this model probably has a main board on the back. what is the model number and i can help you further.

Refrigerator was working fine - this morning there is a puddle under the freezer door and booth sides of the unit are not cold. Compressor or reley continues to kick on for about 7 -8 seconds but will not...

Sounds like your compressor is laborring or on its way to seizing, either way it will soon fail, needs to be replaced. Depending on the age of the refergirator it may not be cost effective to have the repair done. Don't forget to check your owners manual to see if the compressor is still under any warranty! Good luck !

Water dispenser not working

This water line does not run through the freezer. You have a switch in the door where you get water that activates the water valve in the back of the Ref.

One or both of these are bad and needs to be replaced.
