SOURCE: There is an ice build-up underneath the humidity

The problem isn't the humidity control or temperature control. When the refrigerator automatically defrosts it goes through a cycle of heating and melting the ice build-up then drains this water to a tray at the bottom of the refrigerator (underneath). The drain tube that lets this water flow down to the bottom tray freezes so the ice begins to build inside the refrigerator section.

The solution to this is to defrost the tube so water can flow again. There are heating coils in the freezer section behind the plastic in the back that you must remove and defrost.

This is an inherent problem with a lot of refrigerator/freezers. You should probably have your refrigerator serviced and to check the heating capability of the coils to keep this tube from freezing. Otherwise put this on your monthly schedule of manually defrosting.

The problem is on your fan motor. This fan will automatically off when the door open. It has the switch that activated by the door. Please check and fix your fan, since it work with strong noise. The problem is usually on its bearing.

If any moisture was left in the unit prior to storage with the doors closed, it has caused the door tracks to become rusty and non functional. Refrigerator units should always be left ajar for many days following removal of power to allow the interior to fully defrost, and dry out. Extended periods of trapped moisture inside the unit will also cause corrosion on the aluminum coil, and cooling failure. Pleazer Appliance...

Fruit is freezing in the bottom drawer of the KitchenAid KSCS25FKSS Side by Side Refrigerator


There is a chance that your refrigerator needs defrosting. Remove everything and unplug your refrigerator, open the doors and let stand for 12 hours. Sometimes the air vents restrict with ice causing this trouble.

Check top see if the arms of the drawer are fully seated into the rails which support it and extend from inside the freezer when the drawer is opened. On most french door refrig's, there are hooks on the back side and tabs on the front side which are sometimes hard to get back in. Then the door is locked into the rail with a screw at the point where the rail meets the freezer door.

Mod# RFG297AA:Need to remove the freezer section or handle/latch


there are two screws on each side of the bottom freezer unit you need to remove. they can be removed after de-installing the front bin with the two plastic sleeves on the right and left. Then you can remove the bottom drawer door and the bins inside. next, open both top doors and angle the fridge with one door inside the door frame, then "walk" the fridge over the doorstoop, turning towards the inside door as you push. Follow thru with the rest of the unit, then re-attach the bottom drawer.

Amana ABB1927DE lower drawers freeze and lock potential


Cold air settles to the bottom of the fridge. Things that can freeze easy may if the door is closed for long periods of time. This is a normal condition for any refrigerator. Look to see if there is a vent that goes to that drawer and close it all the way. That may make a difference.
