We have ice sheets forming under cool select pantry drawer of our refrigerator. What should we do?


the fan usually stops working due to ice obstruction when the defrost terminator has gone out and u get ice build up? u can check the terminator with a multi meter for continuity but do not check at room temperature. stick the terminator in cup of ice water for 20 minutes then check it for continuity, should be closed when cold and open at room temperature. May also need to check the defrost timer, u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?

You'll sadly find that there is either a leak or low pressure in the gas , or the pump is failing.

What's your problem?ice buildup under french drawer refrigerator


It could just be condensation, especially if you live in a humid area. I'd consider adding some silica gel packets (the kind you find in shoeboxes,) to the place where the ice is building up and see if there are holes in the ice where the silica is. If so, it's moisture-based, and short of installing a dehumidifier in the house or running the AC constantly, your best bet is to invest in a thick rubber mat, like the kind offices have at the door, and place the fridge on it, possibly with a small one-inch-thick block of wood under each foot. That's what I had to do and to my surprise, my power bill went down. It turned out that the rubber mat caught the condensation and let it evaporate, plus the wooden blocks gave the refrigerator coils more ventilation, which made it run more efficiently. It was like a $5 difference per month on the electric bill, so definitely worth a try, plus if the rubber mat is rectangular, it'll protect the patch of floor in front of the fridge from any accidental spills.

Subzero 601 freezer: ice and frost build up behind the back panel and then the whole back panel frost/ice overflows, will not make ice cubes and the drawer freezes shut. I've had the defrost...


Honestly, it really sounds like your problem in the drain is blocked and is overflowing causing a nightmare. I'm assuming it starts just at the bottom of the back wall just around the first set of drawers. There is a kit that they make that actually resolves this issue. Unfortunatly, after looking it up they actually discontinued that part for your model. Not to worry, I'll tell you how to build on. You'll want to remove the drawers and the shelfs and the back wall. For maximun ease I recommend turning the machine off for a day or two and letting everything thaw out. Once the back is off locate the defrost heater. It will run along the bottom of the evaporator. Now, find the drain hole in the trough below the heater area. Once you;ve done that find an aluminum can and good pair of scissors. Cut a strip that can fit down the drain hole, but not to small or too big. Be sure to make it a decent length. Take one end and sort of wrap it around the defrost heater directly above the drain hole then have the rest of the strip go into the drain. How this works is everytime the machine goes into defrost, this ice will melt and the water will fall to the trough where it will go to the drain. The bad thing is hot water actually freezes faster than cold, but with the aluminum improvised drain heater, heat from the element above will pass downward to the aluminum keeping the water warm enough to not freeze as it goes down the drain and finally out of the machine. Your problem will be a thing of the past. Good luck

Frost is building up in bottom freezer. Appliance is running nonstop. I believe that the freezer drawer has been shut completely. Foods in refrigerator section are fine; foods in freezer section are...


Frost can build up for multiple reasons. Most common is the start os an iceblock. Other reasons can include condensation from door being left open or opening too much. It can also happen from backsplash from the inlet tube for the ice maker. If the fridge is running non stop. It sounds like the ice block is forming and the temps are not getting to the program temps. If at factory setting the freezer should be at or around 0 degrees and fridge should be between 42 and 48 degrees. Has the fridge shutdown at all to go into defrost? The defrost timer may have went out and is causing an iceblock. If there is an ice block always change bimetal/ defrost thermostat.

If you need any further assistacne please feel free to comment me.
