Frozen compressor


A frozen compressor can be caused by several things. One cause could be partial loss of refrigerant or being over charged by someone adding to the factory charge. Another cause for a frozen compressor might be poor heat transfer in the evaporator, which is where the cool air comes from. This is usually systematic of a dirty evaporator or poor air flow coming from the fan. Another cause for a frozen compressor is the system not turning off when it should. This problem is usually a result of a bad thermostat or the thermostat not turning off soon enough.

Doesn't cool


Hi, Yes, If the evaporator was not frozen over then I agree with you. The unit has lost its refrigerant charge. The only thing you can do is to have a licensed refrigeration man find the leak, repair it and recharge it or replace the refrigerator. If the evaporator is frozen over the defrost timer would be the problem. In this case, manually defrost it and it will be good for a few days until you get it replaced. kstfas

The freezer part of the fridge used to work so well n ice would form in a few minutes of switcfhing on the fridge. but now, ice rarely forms and ice cream simply melts. what could be the prob


Cause of that problem is a clogged in the tubing system, if your refrigerator is 5-10 years old it is a candidate for that problem. But if the refrigerator is newer, few years old then be sure the evaporator has no small hole or punctured cause by sharp object when removing frozen thing on it. Inspect it visually if you haven't found hole in evaporator then a system is clogged.
Thanks for asking.

It keeps running and doesn't shut down. Freezer


Check condensor for clogged coils and make sure the back is on it. (The pasteboard covering over the Service Opening on Bottom Rear)

The freezer fills with water and overflows about once a week.The food is partially frozen and the ice is clear and wet. The fridge is cold and no problems but the freezer doesn't fully freeze and water...


your evaporator coil in the rear area behind the freezer back panel is frozen over with ice and the coil can no longer deliver cold air due to ice blocking the air flow from the evaporator fan,remove this rear panel,defrost it with a hair dryer,check the defrost heating coil for continuity,they go bad regularly,if not the heater coil under the evaporator coil,it may be the defrost timer in the refrigerator section of the unit that powers the defrost coil that needs replacement

I have a 20 year old sub-zero refrigerator. For the last two weeks the refrigerator is so cold that everything is freezing. If I turn down the thermostat the freezer warms up.


It sounds like the freezer side is losing its capacity......All cooling done on the refrigerator side is done by air flow of the fan in the freezer compartment by the evaporator coils(aluminum fins looks like a radiator)
You might want to pull the back panel of the freezer section and look at it.
Normally it is fully frosted when running(whitish snow covering on evaporator) If it is only partially frosted it has a freon leak or compressor problem. If it is engulfed in frost and there is no air flow possible through it your defrost system has failed.My guess is it is partially frosted and you have a freon leak.

Also check the fan by the compressor is running on the outside and the condensor coils on the outside on the bottom are clean.( fan runs when compressor runs)

FRIGIDAIRE frost free refrigerator seems to be leaking. Items in freezer are frozen...items in refrigerator are cold...any ideas? It has an ice maker which is working. Approx. 13 years old.


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.

Sub zero refrig - ice forming inside


The solution posted previously is TOTALLY WRONG. A Sub Zero ref doesn't have a heating element in the fresh food section. Only in the Frozen food section. It has 2 totally separate systems for each section. 2 Compressors and 2 evaporators. They share a condenser. If you are having ice build up in the refrigerator then the problem you are having is a refrigerant leak in the fresh food evaporator. You need to have a certified tech come out and replace the evaporator in your refrigerator section of your Sub Zero. Not sure what you are asking about the thermostat.
