the evaporator coil is frozen over and cant release cold air due to this,defrost the unit remove rear panel inside freezer and troubleshoot the defrost heater and thermostat and also make sure the fan near this coil is running, on the evaporator coil as,you cant blow cold air thru a coil covered by ice
Turn the refrigerator off and let the freezer thaw completely. You may have frozen the water supply line so water cannot get into the ice maker. Also, the coils in the back of the freezer could be frozen, so you cannot get a cold enough temperature to freeze the water. You can confirm this by removing the back panel from the freezer (inside) and looking at the coils.
top freezer unit? coils could be frozen and passage to fridge blocked (that's how these work... cold flows down at rate determined by your fridge dial opening a little door). Empty the freezer and remove the rear panel. If you see lots of ice, your defrost element may be shot. Cheap online and fairly easy to replace.
Hi, Dounfd like the defrost drain in the freezer is plugged. Remove the rear panel inside the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coil.
Once all the ice has been removed, flush the drain with hot water. Some models require an after market drain heater kit. If you will get me a model #, Ican look this up for you.
I turned the fridge side off on mine, and left it overnight (last night!). This morning there is frozen stuff in the freezer. I think the compressor motor just needed ALOT of time to cool down b4 it would work properly again
hi. thanks for the question .pull fridge away from the wall. remove back panel, clean all coils. look for leak. the tray is suppose to evaporate, from the heat from coils ,and compressor .so it has to evaporate .thanks the appliance doc
