Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a 7 month old KIC Refrigerator (KB 6032/2 ME ), the cooling and freezing is fine for now however I hear strange sounds coming from the rear of it. My analogy, Imagine an EMPTY cooldrink can being vaccumed by a straw for its last drop. Yep, It doesn't sound healthy. What can you suggest could be the reason it does this? Am I supposed to fill water into into some entry point of this unit?

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: Sound of Water coming from internal backside of freeze

Your unit was in defrost mode (happens once a day) and ice that built up over the previous 24 hours was melting and draining down a drain line to a pan under the unit so it will evaporate. This is how freezers stay " Frost free ". The water in the pan under the unit will evaporate by itself. Have a great day!

SOURCE: Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

SOURCE: i have a ge side by side refrigerator/freezer and i'm hearing a sizzling sound from the freezer side. Sounds like water is hitting the heating element causing a sizzling noise. Should I empty th

If you are sure the sound is coming from the freezer side, then yes you should empty the frrezer and take off the rear shield. While the heating element is normally encased in glass or plastic. Water droplets hitting an electrical connection could also cause a sizzling sound.

Frig freezer wont get cold enough after move . 35 degress then back up to 45 . cleaned everything good . coils everything . worked fine till moved . waited 24 hours after move to plugg in . help


Hi Kim, Before you check out the link below, Read about your refrigerator not cooling?Is your older or newer model refrigerator plugged in, getting power, the lights are on inside but the fridge will not cool and the freezer won't freeze? If your refrigerator or freezer has suddenly stopped cooling and the freezer won't freeze, we have multiple solutions for you.If you hear a clicking sound coming from the back of your refrigerator/freezer, then the problem is most likely the compressor is overheating or not getting proper power and will not start. The compressor is the component on your refrigerator that allows your refrigerator to cool. If this component is not working properly your refrigerator will stop cooling. Most of the time the compressor is not the component that has failed.

My kic fridge have 2 compartments. Freezer and fridge. only the fridge part dont work help please


The freezer is where the heat is removed from the box and cold air should circulate from the freezer into the refrigerator section. Something must be blocking the vent between the two. There is only one cooling unit; it cools the freezer and is also vented into the fridge for sub-freezing temperatures.

Hi I have a very old KIC fridge freezer the freezer is cold and works well the fridge is not icing up on the back board in the fridge everything going off in the fridge what could be causing this?


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Whirlpool Mod ET18LKXHWo o Fridge not freezing,


Your defrost timer located inside the control panel is bad OR the defrost thermostat located on a freezer coil is bad.
Get down low and look up at the bottom of the control panel.
You will see a small round hole. Onside the hole is the defrost timer advance knob.
Use a flat blade screwdriver and SLOWLY turh the slotted knod clockwise until the refrigerator clicks off.
Wait a few minutes then open the freezer door and listen for a sizzling sound from the freezer compartment.
If you do hear a sizzling sound that would be the defrost heater melting ice.
If you do not hear a sizzling sound,unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear freezer panel to expose the cooling coil.
Clipped to the coil will be the defrost thermostat. It will need replacing.
If you do hear the sizzling sound the defrost timer will need replacing.

GE GSS20IEPHWW side-by-side refrigerator stopped cooling


First off, when the fans are both running, the compressor should also be running. Sometimes, because they run quietly, it is difficult to tell if they are running. Touch the compressor to feel for heat and / or vibration to confirm running. (if the compressor gets too hot, the overload will stop it until the compressor cools down. That could happen with too low or too high voltage, even with the cooling fan running) You did not say how long you let the unit defrost. To properly defrost it, you should empty out the freezer side, remove the shelves, and take the metal cover off the back inside wall of the freezer. Then, use a hair dryer to melt all the frost off. If the coils were blocked with frost, you probably have a burnt out defrost heater (located at the bottom of the cooling coils) when replacing the defrost heater, use part number WR51X10101 and follow directions, as it may have a different configuration than the original heater. A frost blocked evaporator (coils inside the freezer) will stop normal air circulation inside the refrigerator. Cold air will then be able to flow backward, into the bottom of the refrigerator side through the normal return air duct located at the bottom of the refrig / freezer divider. This cold air can freeze the water line or water reservoir located there. There for, solving your defrost issue most likely will also solve your water line freeze issue.

It sounds like your compressor has failed. The hum is the compressor trying to start and the click following is the over current protector opening.
