SOURCE: freezer won't stay cold. ice cream will not

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

SOURCE: my fridsgidair fridge model #frt21il6jb2 doesnt freeze ice cream.temp gets to around 0 degrees or a little less but ice cream is too soft.frost builds up on the back bottom right side of freezer.

No, the defrost timer will be OK. You will need to replace the "defrost thermostat" on the unit. Here is the part to order.

What setting do I use to make the freezer freeze food


When you are freezing something, set your freezer on its highest setting. However, if you are going to leave your freezer empty for a long time, you should change the setting to a lower one. Here's a great tip for ice cream: place a tub of ice cream in a ziplock bag before putting it in the freezer; it prevents freezer burn. You know when your ice cream gets so cold, it's hard to scoop out? Doing this stops that, it's keeps the ice cream just soft enough for easy scooping!

The freezer won't run so how us it that the compressor is very hot after several hours?


ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck

I have a kenmore upright freezer and can't remember which setting it should be on. It has coldest 1 2 3 etc.


I keep min two notches from the coldest setting.A great way to check where you should set yous,is ice cream.Put an open container of ice cream in the freezer,and turn the freezer to coldest.The next day try to scoop the ice cream.If the ice cream is hard the freezer is too cold.Adjust the freezer two notches ,and try the ice cream the next day.Repeat till you are happy with the hardness of the ice cream.It should be easy to scoop but not too soft.

Green light does not come on for settings 0 to 4


the ice cream is the clue,if it goes hard then the temp is too low (ice cream best kept at -18C)
either the defrost is not working or interior temp sensor duff.

Ice cream and Cool Whip are soft but ham/chicken are hard


Freezer is not cold enough probably holding about 20 degrees. Try setting your temperature up for the freezer if that doesn't help you may have a problem that needs service.

Ice cream comes out fine at first the mashine doesn't cut off then it seems that the ice cream freeses in the cylinder to the point its to hard to come out


Use slightly warm ingredients or leave the freezer bowl out of the freezer for a few minutes before beginning - this will help if the rim around bowl freezes so fast that it stops the paddle from moving. When working optimally, I found that 3 different Cuisinart ice cream maker models will produce the best ice cream at around 14 to 20 minutes - no more than that. But it varies by your exact model #.

Ice cream has ice crystals in it


Ice crystals are more prevalent in homemade ice cream because it takes longer to freeze the mix. When you can flash-freeze the ice cream to very low temperatures very quickly, there is less time for the molecules to melt and refreeze, which causes crystal formation.

ice-cream-ice-crystals-in-myawdgdmzywgx1pl2igmxr0v-3-0.jpg
Here are some of the useful tips:
1.) When the ice cream is done, transfer to the coldest part of the freezer as quickly as possible
2.) Pre-freeze the ice cream bowl before using, and pre-freeze the storage container before putting the ice cream in it and into the freezer
3.) Make sure the mix is very cold before using the machine. Maybe put the mix in the freezer for 15 minutes before starting the machine, so that it will finish faster

Hopefully this information helps a lot.
