I have noticed my heat pump is freezing up on the outside unit, we have had freezing rain and snow the last 2 days but I have never noticed ice accumulation on the outside of the unit, it also seems like...


In freezing weather the heat pump efficiency drops. The freezing is normal. The equipment has a board and sensor to defrost your heat pump. Now this system can fail but freezing rain and snow get pulled into the unit get pulled into the unit coil and freeze blocking airflow. You can defrost the unit by turning it to cooling. This is what the defrost board does automatically.

Refridgerator side not getting cold model gss201epaww


make sure the damper vent door located between the freezer and refrige compartments is opening and letting in cold air from the freezer,if they ice up they can stick shut and not allow air flow,this door is behind a plastic grille an a hair dryer works great to defrost them

My heat pump is frozen up today and it is 60 degrees outside and I have my heat set to 66 degrees. Is this normal?


You post is not clear as to where the freeze-up is occurring. I'm going to assume the outdoor unit is frozen up.
Heat Pumps don't generally freeze up at 60 degrees. If the ice around the unit has an uneven pattern (for example a thick spot around the center or at the very bottom) could indicate a low refrigerant charge. If the ice is even throughout, it may be one of the following:
*Sticking Contactor*.....turn the system off at your thermostat and check to make sure the unit outside shut off. If it doesn't turn off, it is likely to be the contactor.
*Failed Defrost Thermostat*.....if the defrost thermostat fails "open", the system will never go into defrost.
*Failed Defrost Control Board*......this could also prevent the system from going into defrost
*Failed Reversing Valve*........put your system in COOL mode and check to see if it will blow cold air inside approx 16 - 22 degF lower than room temperature.
*Failed/Failing Condensor Fan Motor*.......ensure the condenser fan motor is running during heat and cool modes. The condensor fan motor will not run in OFF/Satisfied Mode or in Defrost Mode.
I hope this helps. Good Luck! :-)

Have a freezer on bottom fridge that keeps freezing where the fan is


defrost not working check defrost t-stat, timer, or heating element.
find timer and rotate till compressor turns off; defrost should start and melt ice, if no melting then check defrost t-stat ( round disc located nead heating coil) if you remove it and jump around it will begin to heat normally. If so then do not leave it jumped!!!!!!!! Replace it and you're done!!!!!!

My heat is freezing up because it is cold out side,what do I do


Sounds like you having a problem with the defrost board, also check to see if the freeze stat is connected, if not it will not since the coils temp and send a signal to the board to go in defrost and your electric heat strips should kick on if you have them. Depending on what unit you have you be able to which the dip switches to call for defrost at a quicker or longer time depending on the outside temp.

Ge rifrig will not defrost


you have a defrost issue not being able to verify circuits on the mother board i would replace the high limit, what you are calling the termination stat this stat stays closed unless the temp hits 140, thats right 140 degrees f and change the evaperator sensor.
evap sensor can cause missed defrosts or no defrosts
high limit part number wr50x10068
sensor number is wr55x10025
each part is 7-15 dollars each

RUUD Central Air/Heat Pump


Start with the simplest first it,s not fun but it's necessary EVERY TIME. Clean your evaporator and condenser coil, change your air filter. Getting to the evap. coil is often a real headache and a result doesn't get done often. When its clogged as you probably know the refrigerant can't absorb heat at the coil so it tries to absorb heat on the way to the compressor freezing the hot gas line the safety circuits that protect the heat pump compressor from getting liquid refrigerant back to the compressor almost immediately will take the compressor of line (looking somewhat like a defrost cycle). I hope this helps it's a tough repair GL!
