Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My old whirlpool refrig. with frostless freezer on top model # ET20DKXSN 00 has started to form frost in the back of the freezer where the ice cube trays are stored. It seems to be coming from the around the cover where the ice maker would be attached if I had one. Any ideas what would fix the problem. In a few days it makes the big tray stick to the frost at the back.

Check the back of the refrigerwtor there shpoould be a opening where the water goe into the freezer for the ice maker. you need to seal it up so that the moiust air from outside does not enter the freezer.

Why is ice forming in freezer


Ice layer inside freezer box floor - Defrost drain line clogged.

Frost or ice on freezer box top - Room air leaking into the fridge from door seals.

Frost on the Freezer box back wall means unit is not defrosting properly.

Hi, my Whirlpool fridge is not cold even though I had turned it up to 3/4 of the cold dial. Ice does not form in the top compartment.


If there is no frost on the rear wall inside the freezer and the fan in the freezer is working , pull the refrig out and feel if the compressor is running . If not running , tap on the temp dial , firmly , and see if the compressor starts . If it does , replace the thermostat ( part behind the dial ) . If it does not start , replace the overload/relay , which is plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . If the compressor IS running , remove the inside freezer panel ( remove the ice maker if it has one ) and see if the coils are frosted . If so , then you have a defrost problem , which will be a different set of instructions .

My maytag refrig. is 3 years old. model #747908 HS520AS. freezer on bottom-refrig on top. the refrig part is not staying cold. have cleaned under frig and vaccumed back and underneath and it still is not...


Hi,

All the cooling coils for this model are in the freezer section. There is a fan down there behind the back wall on the top. This fan directs air up to the fresh food section.

Check the temperature of the freezer you can do this by inspecting the ice cream, if the ice cream is soft you are above 5 degrees F. If you have a good cold freezer then the problem is with air flow, the evaporator fan that I spoke of could be bad).

If your freezer temperature is not as cold as it should be you may have a defrost problem, look for any signs of frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section, if you see frost you will most likely need to put in a new control.

If the freezer temperature is warmer than normal and you do not have frost you may have a sealed system leak, this will require a technician for sure.

Freezer compartment has frost buildup


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

GE REFRIG. MODEL#TFX30PRYAA. side by side both


It sounds like your defrost control timer is working, but your defrost heater is most likely burnt out. It is a part number WR51X443
and is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. Turning the refrig off for 24 hours helped melt some of the accumulated frost, but not all. You will have to take that back cover off inside the freezer and melt all the frost with a hair blower, replace the defrost heater and reassemble.

Ice maker flooded top freezer compartment


It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze

Ice forming in freezer refrigerator not getting cold


Replace your heater and thermostat behind the back wall of the freezer. the air will not flow from the freezer to the fridge because of all the forming ice. Also replace the defrost timer. take your model number into a local parts store and they can get you the parts. This is very common!!!!! But pretty easy to do.
