Kelvinator cyclic 300 - leaks water at bottom of fridge

There is a small ledge container on the back wall of the fridge which extends across almost the full width and this is full of frozen water. Water now leaks out from botom of fridge. I am presuming the hose that drains this container comes from that ledge container. Also the container on the back of the fridge (on top of the compressor) is totally dry. I am presuming that this is the cycling part of the defrosting process. The fridge seems to work quite well other than that. Any clues? Or can you tell me how the defrost process in these works?

You need to replace the intake valve. First, check if it's clogged. By cleaning it, it can be fixed.

Good day,
Gas is not dangerous. But you have a serious problem.
Repair is limited to an epoxy repair, or replacing the coil assembly complete.
A new dryer filter must be brazed in, The system must be vacuumed out, charging ports installed ect,ect,ect.
You can call around to the service companies for a price, but it will be pricey, and you will probably have to take it in.

Not considered to be a practical repair.

SOURCE: Refrigerator cools but ices up

First ..be sure all things run proper...The coil need to be clean and not frosty or so ...also the fan needs to be working ..cause the main function is to even the temperature and avoid condense..-therefore no ice..
A common mistake people do when it comes about refrigerators...is to set the teperature too lo w..This way you practically force it to freeze up ..than its defrosting function which is supposed to interfere only if needed ..will kick in ..The normal temperature for a refrigerator do not need to be below the freezing point ..(which will be 32F or 0 C ) ..Only the freezer need to go below this point ..and not too much ..but just a few degrees to assure the freezing ..for teh refrigerator ..the normal will be somewhere at the 40 degrees F ..(7 C ) ..This way it will never freeze unless it is a problem with the fan or the freezer is faulty ..

Kelvinator Cyclic 330, Model No: CS334A-R


Tonight, get a battery flash light, turn it on, put it in the fridge and close the fridge door. Then turn off all the lights in the room. If you can see any light escaping around the fridge door, the door seals aren't working properly, and need replacing.
This is the main reason why too much water is being condensed and causing your fridge drip tray to overflow.

Kelvinator Cyclic 330 not getting cold enough


Empty the refigerator and freezer, unplug it for about 8 hours, leave freezer door open so it will completely defrost. Plug it back in for 4 hours and close doors before you fill it back up with food. If you have a thermometer, check the interior temperatures before you fill it back up. Refigerator should be around 42 degrees F.

Kelvinator fridge not cooling


Try defrosting the fridge. Check the cold plate at the back of the food compartment once the fridge has been defrosted and turned back on again. The cold plate in the freezer (around the walls) will be cold to touch as will the cold plate at the back of the fridge,

first look for an air vent in the bottom of the fridge(a small grill on the inside wall) & make sure nothing is blocking it, like bread eg: if there isn't then unplug your fridge & let it defrost, check the drain outlet in the back of the freezer, sometimes a small item like a frozen pea gets into the drain & the water freezes around it causing the air not to return to the freezer from the fridge, to push air into the fridge you must be able to get air out or it presurises,

How do you defrost the kelvinator cyclic 300 fridge?


hi,
a manual defrost? unplug and get a 9by11 cake pan and a bunch of towels and a hairdryer. put the hairdryer on LOW only and get it positioned in the freezer (door) compartment so its pointing towards the back. cake pan in the bottom towels below. and on the floor. leave the door open about 3 or 4 inches but NOT shut so you have some air circulation. and check it frequently. make sure the hair dryer isnt pointed at the plastics at all. takes a day. pull it from the wall, remove the rear access cover behind the fridge and blow it out with a vac or air compressor too. theres an access panel inside the freezer and if your handy, your ice blockage causing that problem lives behind there in the freezer. use caution if your going to attempt taking that plate off inside. use nothing sharp.

Where abouts is the thermostat inside the fridge there are white and yellow wires that go to either side of the fridge and the yeallow ones are broken what are these wires for it is a kelvinator C375vm


It sounds like you have a cyclic defrost fridge,Kelvinators were originally fitted with heat assist thermostats,so in order for the fridge to come back on a yellow wire heater was run around the cooling evaporator in the fridge compartment start running again at approx +4C so when the element fused the fridge did not start again until approx +12C.So instead of replacing heater a different thermo was used that came back on at +4c deg regardless.Kind Regards.

The freezer defrosts every day. the puddle is from that. It is supposed to go into a pan at the bottom and evaporate. You need to look at the pan and determine if it has a hole or the drain hose is leaking somewhere.
