Freezer only gets down to around 18 degrees but fridge is fine. No frost on the freezer evaporator fan is running


Modern consumer refrigerators only have coils in the freezer. In the lower back of the freezer there is a small fan and possible a damper (flap that opens/closes) to push cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator. Given that the freezer is 18 deg, it's probably cold enough to keep the fridge area at typically 34 deg.
So the cooling system (compressor, coils, thermostat) are not working properly to keep the freezer at, typically 0 deg. Possible causes: partial loss of refrigerant gas, icing around evaporator coils (in freezer), compressor failing, dust clogging condenser coils (under fridge), condenser fan clogged or broken (under fridge), thermostat failure.
I'd start with condenser. Remove the slotted trim at the bottom front and look in with a flashlight. Are the coils clean? Pull out the fridge and remove the lower back cover (usually cardboard). You can now see the coils and fan. Clean and blow them out.
If it's icing, it probably means freezer door not closing tight. If auto-defrost not working properly it would probably get worse over the period of a few days so not likely.

Ice collects in the bottom of the freezer not allowing door to shut


BA Baker... hello,

Ice collecting on the bottom of the freezer.. is not such a terrible thing...

(Probably means the defrost is working... (merely not EXITING)).

New refrig or unfamiliar refrig could cause deeper analysis...
but if ...

If this is not a new device... and has been happily tending to it's own needs (evaporating well) for a while (months would be re-assuring)...

Then you are MOST probably looking at a clogged evaporator drain... (usually easily fixed by negotiating "WARM" (not hot) through the bottom vents slots of your freezer section.

Looking under your Refrigerator/Freezer... or consulting your owners manual... Locate your defrost "catch" pan...

It should NOT be dusty...

(easily tested: clean paper in tray...
Still clean tomorrow = clogged drain (pan is watered daily).

Close inspection should reveal a tube descending into it.... This is where you will watch for your patiently applied doses of warm water to appear... (near immediate).

It may take several doses... because ice can also have formed over the drain... Be persistent... You will be proud.

Please comment me back... I really like REFRIGERATORS/Frzrs...
few appliances tend to themselves so well (adorable).

How long do you bake 1 1/2" X 3" chicken strips in sauce?


The safest way to know is to use a thermometer. Since you are using a red sauce you cannot look for blood. You could brown the chicken first and then put it in the sauce.

Fridge makes an intermitant squeaking sounds


If the sound seems to be coming from the freezer simply put a couple drops of oil on the evaporator fan motor. The evaporator fan motor is located in the freezer behind the panel.
Make sure you unplug the refrigerator before repairing it.

Something is for sure wrong with the defrost thermostat. It turns the defrost heater off at 50 degrees. Part number WR50X10054 Yours must be shorted out. I would not sleep until that part is replaced. Sea Breeze

Ice keeps melting in the freezer side of the fridge periodically and leeking water everywhere. Temperature seems to randomly drop to the point where it melts.


Sounds like it's the defrost thermostat gone bad. It's located on the evaporator coils behind the back cover inside the freezer. It may be mishapenned or you can test it. It should show continuity with an ohm meter when it's above 35 degrees. It cuts the defrost heater off to prevent overheating.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.
