Question about Haier HRF10WNB Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Haier Refrigerator 10.5 Cu.Ft.

It seems the auto defrost kicks on by itself on the third day after the refrigerator has been plugged in/turned on. Its not freezing up and theres no ice build up, so why would the auto defrost process begin? Note: I can always tell when the auto defrost begins because of a very distinct dry smell comes from the refrigerator. What can be causing this? Thank you!

This is a manual defrost unit. There is a push in button on the thermostat knob which puts the unit in defrost mode. Its probably stock in the on position, which is why the unit doesnt cool when it does this. You might have to take the knob apart, or replace the whole assemble if all checked out fine physically.

I have a Haier refrigerator model #rrtg18paaw and the freezer is not working but the fan is please help?

At this point I am assuming the refrigerator portion is working. It sounds like it may be a thermostat or a low refrigerant charge. If you cannot find it with the links I have attached you should contact a servace tec but also it possibly is in warrenty so start where you purchased the unit.

Water seems to drip down the upper back inside of the fridge, and freezes in droplets, and it also freezes any food pushed up against the back of the fridge.

Hi Ford:
Could you check the drain from the auto defrost?
There will be a rubber tube running down the outside back and it leads to an evap tray under the unit.
At the inside top (where the water seems to be coming from) there should be a funnel that catches the water from the auto defrost. If it is plugged or the drain tube is plugged, you will encounter the problem that you describ.
Hope this helps,

Why does my refrigerator turns off restart a couple days later ?

Could be the back of the freezer is not defrosting and is packed up with ice. The cold air then can't circulate to the fridge part as the fan is frozen solid in ice. Had this happen due to a faulty transducer that tells the defrost system the freezer is iced up and to go into defrost mode. Also it could be the fan that blows cold air down into the fridge from the freezer compartment.

There is a self timer for auto defrosting in the no frost model. There could be possible fault in this setup. Also your thermostat could be another culprit. You will need to call a service technician to give an second opinion but keep these views in mind. Never try to do any work which could be expensive to already a wrong choice of buying a used set w/o warranty. Finally keep your thermostat in diffferent modes and check out for any differance in the fault. Hope my advice is helpful. Good Day.
