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.

Freezer has light frost in bak and frig is not cooling properly


Sounds like it is not defrosting . Either the defrost timer, heater or thermostat. Leave the bottom door open for 24 hours and will probably work again for about a week till repaired.

Frost is building up in bottom freezer. Amana ABB2224DEW


I have this problem as well, only nobody is leaving anything open. The defroster is defective of these things and the duct between the fridge and freezer gets frozen over and the cold air can't get in the fridge, so the freezer keeps working until it's blue in the face.

Frost in freezer


Yes it is... The warm outside air has caused condensation inside the freezer then ther temp of the freezer has frozed it.Like when you set a can of coke out from the refrig it sweats and then the freezer frezzes it.........The best way to unthaw it is with a hair dryer hope this helps or you could unplug it for 12hours or so but in both cases have some towels ready to soak up the water hope this helps

Frig not cold but freezer is ice maker not making much ice either


Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
