Probably drain outlet hose and water in pump frozen, you will have
to wait for the the ice to melt in the hose, but if you put some hot water in drum, that should melt any ice in pump.
PLz rate my solution.

I have a Beko frost free fridge freezer kept in a garage that has all of a sudden just stopped working. I noticed that the bread I'd put in the freezer hadn't frozen and then noticed that the fan had...

If the fan has failed or intermittent, the freezer wont freeze the food properly but usually you get a mountain of ice build up at the back of the freezer. This ice jams and stops the fan from turning. Alternatively, there could be a defrost problem. Unless it is a fully electronic defrost machine, there is usually a little timer on the back of the fridge to force a defrost after a certain time. The fridge will turn off, the defrost heater operates to melt the ice and then usually with 20 to 45 minutes, the defrost timer will "click" back on and start the fridge running again. If the timer is sticking, the fridge may stay on its defrost cycle and never start again, thus, it doesn't get cold. If you find the defrost timer, have a close look for a little shaft or slotted screw type stud sticking out of the middle of it. A slight turn of this and you should hear it clicking around. When you hear a loud click, that is either the start or end of the defrost cycle. If you have a full electronic defrost system, it may be a failed board, heater, thermostat or defrost safety fuse.

I have a top mount Kenmore refrigerator, model no. 106.60272990, serial no. EK2929089. It is about 10 years old and works fine except for one problem that has kept recurring every 2-3 months over the last...

hey barry I had the same problem and i recently broke down and called a repair service, the repair person installed a small aluminum piece he refered to as a heat probe, on the heater coil which is behind the back plate in the freezer, he claims this will solve the problem, evidently the water created in the defrost cycle freezes before it can get down the drain, thus the drain becomes blocked with ice, subsequent cycling of the heater for defrost causes more water and ice buildup and the water overflows through air ducts into the refridgerator, I would check at an appilance parts store for this part it cost $20, unfortunatley the total cost of the service call was $ 227, My gripe is this is an obvious flaw in design and should have beeen addressed by Kenmore, if you make a part to remedy a problem then its an admission of the problem! Good Luck!

I have replaced a defrost heater #AH1993872 in my refrigerator Kenmore side by side, model # 363.50232000, S/N 04727723. I would like to check, wheather the defrost heater works properly. What is the...

The defrost time is about 30-45 minutes. This does not mean that the heater is turned on for the full defrost time. It turns on until the defrost thermostat senses the temperature is at 40 deg F then it cuts the power to the heater. Then after the defrost cycle time is over, the compressor is then powered to continue the cooling cycle.

To test, locate the defrost timer. It looks something like this,

slamfix_39.jpg It can either be found in the temperature control box in the refrigerator compartment, or located somewhere near the compressor. When you find it, look for a round cam on the side. Using a flat screwdriver, turn it until it clicks. With the fridge plugged in, the compressor should be off and the defrost heaters should be warming up. You should either hear the ice crackling and melting and see the water flow down the drain tube to the pan below the refrigerator. After about 45 minutes, the compressor should turn on. Hope this helps you.

There is water coming from under the refrig. The overfill water pan is full that is under the freezer. The ice maker is working and so is the water dispenser. The coils are really dusty could this cause...

The overflow pan is the water that is collected during the AUTO DEFROST and usually the water evaporates off before the next defrost cycle. so if there is overflow of water on the collection tank , then the thermostat must be kept a little lower to reduce more frosting.

Will not defrost on its' own. how do I detemine what is wrong; system includes a timer, a limit switch and heater. Is there a way I can manually start the defrost cycle and verify the "heater" is working,...

Good day,
Yes you can. First with a small bladed screw driver, turn the shaft of the timer clockwise while the machine is running. Wait 35 minutes, if the timer turns the machine back on, it's O.K. If not, it's defective and needs replaced. If it checks O.K. then it has to be either the limit thermostat or the heater. 90% of the time it's the limit, however, check the heater first. Remove the wires, and using an ohm meter test the heater for continuety. It should read less than 35 ohms. If it checks infinity, it burned out and must be replaced. If O.K. then just change the limit thermostat. It's the only item left that could be causing the problem.

P.S. It is standard proceedure to replace the limit thermostat if the heater checks bad. Replace both at the same time. If the limit checks bad, replace it only.

F37 fault code on washine machine

the machine has a defrost function, pressing the temperature button twice will start this and show a snowflake in the top right hand corner Press the temperature button twice, ( A snowflake will appear in the top left corner) this acts as a defrost button. F37 will probably occur more often if your machine is stored in a outhouse. or try thawing out the water pipe.
