Refrigerator doesn t get cold


If your refrigerator is frost free and been running for a year or two then here is the solution.
Why would you need to defrost a frost-free freezer? Because they do sometimes get frosted up! This is especially common if the door gets left open for long periods without being noticed, then shut again, thereby trapping lots of moist air in the freezer, which can only come out as frost. The problem is that if their defrosting cycles don't manage to cure their problems they get frosted up at the back, out of sight. If your freezer seems to be struggling to keep things frozen but is otherwise working normally you should consider defrosting it before concluding it is broken.

I have found the best way to defrost my not quite frost free fridge-freezer is to empty the freezer compartment contents into the fridge and switch it off overnight, leaving the fridge door shut and the freezer door open. By stacking all the frozen food together as tightly as possible, ideally wrapped in something to help insulate them (such as newspapers) they stay cold for a long time. In the morning I get in my scruffy clothes and wipe up the puddles caused by the visible frost in the freezer and any puddles formed underneath the appliance. However this is only half the story. To ensure all the frosting has been removed from the hidden parts of the appliance I get my hair dryer and blast warm air into all appropriate crevices from inside the appliance and from behind it.

Why is there frost on the underside of the bottom shelf of the freezer door of our Kitchenade Supra side by side refrigerator?


You're getting moisture into the compartment somehow...check door seals and the door cams/hinges make sure its closing correctly....air from outside getting in will freeze up....

There should be a defrost timer built into the fridge, every fridge has them. This may need replacing.

Fridge isnt working.freezer side is


well if this just started you will most likely find within the next 24 hours the freezer will stop also...the unit actually cools from the freezer side first and then the air is pushed over into the fresh food side or refrigerator side as you are calling it... few things you want to check... first there is a opening between the two sides make sure that it is clear and if has an eelctronic damper it is opening if it is warming up in refrig it should be wide open at current time. 2nd if that is good make sure you have no frost on the back wall of the freezer wall and that the fan in the freezer is working . you may have to hold the door switch closed will listening... the fan in the freezer should be running and there should be no frost on the back wall... if there is frost then maybe you have a defrost problem which could be a heater,a defrost thermostat or a timer problem... if there is no frost make sure the compressor is running and you here no clickin coming from compressor .. hope this helps check them items and if you need anymore help post again....

I have the freezer set at 3. There is ice forming all around the door and snow like frost on the food.


Frost buildup on food and ice around the door is due to warm air infiltration. This sounds like a door closure problem. Be sure that nothing is interfering with the drawer as it closes. Be sure to open the upper door and look down at the drawer top to see that the gasket is hitting the steel frame of the cabinet. Look all the way around the entire drawer front checking the seal.
Also open the drawer and hold it as it closes, so that if there is any food product binding it you will see it get hung open.
Good luck.

Doors won't stay closed!


Frost in the rear of freezer possibly caused by door staying open.  Door staying open possibly caused by frost buildup on ref door track.  Start by making sure the teeth on the freezer track are clear of ice and frost.  This should allow you to shut the freezer door.  Next check the freezer seal.  If it is not completely sealed it it will build up frost. It is also possible that the frost in the rear of the freezer is from a failure in the defrost cycle as the evap coils are at the back of the freezer. If this is the case your refrigerator is probably getting warmer.

The ice dispenser door does not close all the way, and frost building up inside.


You are sure about the model number listed above your post? There are many versions of that model so I just need to confirm. Has the fresh food compartment begun to warm up slightly? Is frost building up on back freezer wall indicating a defrost problem. That model has control boards that make your refrigerator more efficient. If you need more help I will give you my email address so we can communicate directly, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer works fine...refrigerator section


Have you noticed more frost in the freezer than usual? It sounds like you may have moisture building up and freezing around evaporator fan. The fan blade hitting ice will cause the buzzing until it stops it completely or the evaporator clogs with frost and blocks airflow. If you have frost on food in freezer, check the door seals and make sure nothing is keeping doors from closing completely if you release them about 6" from cabinet.

My fridge makes loud popping noises and is over cold (freezing the things in the fridge & frosting up the freezer, when it is a frost free freezer)


Check in your owners manual for a "noise" section to see if you can identify the source. Refers make lots of unusual noises so it helps to understand if they are normal or not. Over cold in the fridge may be due to the air damper system being stuck open or food placed too close to the air duct outlet. Frost in the freezer can be due to moisture getting inside from a bad door seal, etc.
