The best way to defrost is to empty it, unplug it, prop open the doors, and put a fan blowing on it. This could take a day or more. If this has been pretty bad for a long time you might have wet (and frozen) insulation (inside the walls of the freezer where you cannot see it). If so, you should give it an extra day or two to drip out. You might also have a bad or dirty seal around the door. Clean this thoroughly, and inspect it closely to make sure it seals well. Good luck.

Admiral 2!ADW (2001): ice on the floor of the freezer compartment and floor wet around left front of cabinet


The discharge tube of the unit is blocked (defost the unit totally before doing this process), locate where the water discharge is located inside the freezer,,,usually lower rear of the cab, you will see a run-off chanel to a central point, it may have a small filter 5 - 10 mm hole. Remove the filter and use a piece of edge trimmer cord (500mm long) poke it down the hole till you see it appear in the evap tray located over the compressor located in the rear lower external of the unit, you will need 2 people to complete this process, 1 inside the unit poking and one looking at the collection tray over or by the compressor. you may need to thrust the cord down a couple of times to clear the blockage but it will work a treat...Regards Russ

FRS6HR5HSB6 model frigidaire side by side fan making noise. Ice is building up around fan. What is causing ice buildup


the defrost circuit has a problem, allowing the frost/ice buildup..
remove the shelves, and back lower cover in the rear of the freezer to expose the evaporator coil, defrost heater, and defrost thermostat.
the defost heater should have continuity through it and the defrost thermostat will have continuity when frozen but test open when warmed.. if either bad replace.
if both test good look for bad connections in the freezer compartment wiring, and moly connectors otherwise the temperature controls are bad and it is an electronic assembly that incorporates the temperature controls with the deforst timer controls..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Fridge/freezer model FFA90P frost free ice has


The water coming from the bottom is from the evaporater tray because it is too full and running over. There is a grill on the front bottom of the frig. ,and there is a srew or two on either side probably 1/4" maybe 5/16" loosen these and remove the grill. If no srews visible then it just snapps in. Remove grill and slide tray out and dump it.
The icing problem under the freezer tray is a defosting issue. you can move the food items to a cooler with ice or another unit and let this one thaw out with the doors open and unplugged and towl on the floor, the tray that is overflowing now will overflow again while the frig. is unplugged because there is no heat being generated to cause evaporation. You will need to have this checked out by a pro, generaly a service fee and they will tell you what has failed and can ballpark a price to fix. once the unit is thawed, ( this can take 12- 14 hrs) the unit will work again until the air passages get frozen over again. I suspect defrost heater element, defrost heater timer if ice maker equipted,there is also a little fan up there tan can fail. without seeing the unit in person only guesses. the thawing trick will buy some time.

Jenn-air ice maker, stand alone unit, will not shut off, keeps producting ice.


There should be a sensor inside the ice maker bin that tells the ice maker when its full. It may be a wire or an arm on top of the ice. If you accidentally knocked that off the ice maker won't know when the bin is full and just keeps making ice

Kenmore upright freezer not cold enough to freeze


Sounds like a door seal that isn't sealing all the way around. That would be my first replacement. Is the unit level back to front and side to side? Is it really full of food?

Call your local appliance parts house and get a magnetic door seal first. They aren't that expensive. But make sure you do not have the freezer overloaded, which could account for the lack of that vacuum sound.

Finally, is self defost? Even if it is, a lot of times the vent on the bottom in the back gets packed with ice. If it is, remove the food and use a hairdryer, being carefull to unplug the freezer first. Melt all that ice and empty your overflow tray at the bottom underneath.

Good luck!
