This is common, your machine needs a new defrost klixon. or it is (the klixon) loose from it's mount. Turning off the mach. gets a good defrost and
all is good for a time.

Write him a paper letter, including the date -- just the facts, no drama. Keep a copy.

Say you need these things fixed within 4 weeks or you will have to hire someone to fix them and you'll deduct the repair costs from your rent.

I have a GE Profile fridge, top freezer. Ice buildup keeps blocking thew evaporator fan. I've defrosted 2x, checked evap drain for blockage. But ice buildup reoccurs after 2-3 days. Turning up the


You have a defrost problem. Locate your defrost timer while the unit is iced up and turn it until you hear a defined click. At this point open the freezer and listen for ice cracking. If Ice starts cracking then it's your defrost timer bad. If ice doesn't crack, then you have a defrost component bad ( heater and Bi-Metal) Ohm out your heating element and replace if there is no continuity. You can usually find defrost timer either under the front of the box, in the fridge around the light or thermostat or sometimes in the back at the bottom. The dial on the timer can only be turned one way with a large flat head. You will hear the difference in the way the clicks sound for the defined click. Good luck.

Viking Pro VCBB36 -warming up + alarm


Over the past several years my heat alarm would come on, first time I called a PROFESSIONALLY, he told me to unplug for 24HOURS, than start it. The solution worked for two years, just happened again, unplugged it for 24 hours, and it seems fine. My guess it must need to defrost. Good luck!

DEFROSTING/ WATER RUNNING ONTO FLOOR & INSIDE FRIDGE


Check to see if the run-off tube at the back is plugged.

I dont know how old the fridge is - but if it a couple years old check at the back or the fridge - there should be a tube running down the back of the fridge down into the bottom tray. This tube funnels water from the freezer (condensation, or water from the defrost) down onto the tray holding the compressor where it evaporates with help from the heat off the compressor. Sometimes this tube can get plugged up with some scum or mineral deposits, causing the built up water to drain from inside the fridge.

The tube shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean out with some hot water and pipe cleaners. Had the same issue on on a GE fridge last year.
Hope this helps!
