Water on floor


The hose that goes into the drip pan to defrost the refer is plugged with stuff.
take the back off and see the hose connection.A coat hanger works well.Usually a 1/4" hose.
Also see where the bottom of the freezer drains into the drip pan.That may be plugged,also.
The temp may be set too low and the condenser is frozen up,leaking water into the floor.Just ice stuck to the condenser.
Possible that the condenser FAN stopped turning. That will ice up and melt at random:
see/hear that the fan is working.
If stuff gets into the fan,it will ice up,melt and make a mess on the floor.

My refregerator are not properly coolin my food properly. and ice appear\r\nto be sticking to the back wall of the freezing part


You have a blocked drain causing the ice and also the fan is picking is up and pushing it.
This will also impair cooling.

try to unplug your unit for 3 hrs then plug it again, this way you will defrost all the ice that accumulate in evaporator.. check also your fan if it is working properly, also check the timer of defroster

Refigerator is cooling in the lower area and not in the top, the freezer is coolinf fine


MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE DIALS ON THE CORRECT SETTING. IF SO, TAKE A LOOK UP TOP AND PUSH AND HOLD THE DOOR CLOSE BUTTON, WITH DOOR OPEN UNTIL YOU HEAR THE FAN COME ON. IF THE FAN DOES'NT COME ON WITHIN 5 TO 10 MINUTES, THEN YOUR FAN IS NOT BLOWING THE AIR DOWN. TAKE APART THE INSIDE OF THE TOP BY REMOVING BOTTOM AND BACK PANELS AND AIR FLOW DUCT WHICH ALLOWS THE AIR TO FLOW DOWN. SOME MODELS COME WITH ICE MAKERS, REMOVE THIS 1ST. 2ND THE BOTTOM. 3RD THE AIR FLOW DUCT. 4TH THE BACK PANEL. NOW WITH YOUR FINGER, SPIN THE FAN BLADE TO SEE IF IT TURNS FREELY. IF IT DOES, PUSH IN AND HOLD THE DOOR BUTTON IN WITH THE DOOR OPEN UNTIL THE FAN STARTS TO SPIN. NOW AT THE BACK OF THE TOP IS A DRAIN HOLE AND AIR CANALS. MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT FROZEN SHUT WITH ICE. IF THE DRAIN HOLE AND AIR CANALS ARE FROZEN YOU CAN USE HOT WATER TO DISSOLVE THE ICE, BE SURE TO PUT A BUCKET AT THE BACK OF THE LOWER HALF OF THE FRIDGE TO CATCH THE WATER AS IT THAWS. WHEN THE DRAIN HOLE IN THE BACK IS COMPLETELY CLEAR, YOU WILL HEAR A SLURP SOUND. DO NOT POKE OR TRY TO CHIP ANY OF THE ICE LOOSE BECAUSE THIS WILL DAMAGE THE UNIT AND YOU WILL LOSE ALL COOLANT. AFTER YOU HEAR THE SLURP, IT'S CLEAR. MAKE SURE NO ICE IS BETWEEN THE AIR CANALS AND BEGIN TO PUT THE TOP TOGETHER. 1ST HOLD THE DOOR BUTTON UNTIL THE FAN RUNS THEN RELEASE. 2ND MAKE SURE THERE IS NO MORE ICE BLOCKAGE. 3RD PUT ON BACK PANEL MAKING SURE IT DOES NOT TOUCH THE FAN BLADES, AFTER PUTTING ON THE BACK PANEL, SPIN THE FAN BLADES TO MAKE SURE IT SPINS. 4TH PUT ICE MAKER BACK IN IF YOU TOOK ONE OUT AND MAKE SURE YOU CONNECT THE CONNECTORS FOR IT. 5TH INSTALL THE AIR DUCT. 6TH INSTALL BOTTOM PANEL. YOUR DONE. NOW CHECK FAN FOR PROPER OPERATION IN THE MANNER STATED EARLIER, AND IF IT OPERATES WITH NO PROBLEMS THEN YOU HAVE REPAIRED THE PROBLEM. IF THE FAN DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY, THEN REPLACE THE FAN MOTOR. ALSO REMEMBER WHEN YOU RESET YOUR COLD DIALS INSIDE THE FRIDGE, IT TAKES AT LEAST 24 HRS. TO ADJUST ITSELF. THIS TAKES APPROXIMATELY 45 TO 1&1/2 HRS.

Temp is rising and fridge is making noise


the problem lies with your evaporator fan motor, ice is forming underneath the fan blade, and as one customer told me, it sounds like a helicopter. when this fan stops altogether, no air flow to fresh food section is a result.
the cause could be the fan motor itself is bad, or if there is ice underneath the fan blade, the defrost drain is clogged with ice. after clearing the drain, i would highly suggest putting a defrost drain heater, to prevent ice build up in drain,, from obstructing fan blade.

we had same problem,apparently there is no such thing as a frost free fridge/freezer, you have to turn your appliance off for at least 3 days because the freezer has a build up of ice which stops the fridge from working, you must leave it switched off for this time otherwise it will just ice up again.

Doesnt get cold??


Okay,
Defective compressor, refrigerant low from a leak in the system, dirty condenser coils, condenser fan not working, bad compressor relay or capacitor, main thermostat control not working, thermostat needs to be set at proper setting, frozen evaporator coils do to faulty defrost timer, defrost heater coil broken, or the defrost determination thermostat has stayed in the open position, which would result in no defrost and the ice blockage would stop air the circulation, defective evaporator fan, defective door switch which controls the evaporator fan when one opens and closes the freezer door. Freezer drain clogged which would possibly cause the fan to be stuck because of ice built up around it.

Water doens't drain properly and sitting there,


that's fairly common for window units, it's ok to drill a small hole in the underside of the case to drain the water, just be sure you don't puncture the condenser in the process.
