SOURCE: GE Refrigerator- Freezer coil ices up and the F/F gets warm

It is not defrosting obviously. Check heater and defrost limit for continuity. Defrost limit is small round can-looking device; it must be cold to check accurately. If anything shows no continuity then it needs to be replaced. If continuity ok then replace defrost control. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Amana refrigerator, bottom freezer. Back keeps icing up. I have unplugged and thawed it twice, within 2 weeks it is frozen again and freezer warm


This is a defrost problem most likely caused by a defective defrost thermostat. It is located in the freezer compartment behind back wall on top right hand side of coils and usually has a brown and an orange wire connecting to it. It should have continuity when checking with a volt/ohm meter when it is frozen and read open when it is warm.
I have seen many of the newer electronic temperature model bottom mounts with defective control boards as well that cause the fridge to skip the defrost cycle.
Good luck!

The bottom shelf of my upright freezer is super cold - makes everything freeze ''dried'' and super frozen. Why? Seal is good (it ''sucks'' shut and is hard to open after that) - rest of the freezer freezes...


if you are not getting the desired temp in the freezer with the temp control knob, partially block off a small portion of the vent at the bottom with some tape. You could do the same with the vent at the top, the idea is to create a small air restriction. also if you dont add warm product to the freezer very often it has little heat to remove. you may put a gallon jug of warm water in it periodically.

Frost free combo unit fridge keeps getting warm


Hi: You have a bad defrost heater or defrost timer. I'm not familiar with the brand but the heater will be below the evaporator coils in the freezer ( in the back behind a panel.) When you do your defrost that your dad told you to do, it will work until it frosts up again. You are doing the work of the defrost heater. I hope this helps, Jeff

Upper Fridge Too Warm


We had a warm fridge and super cold freezer.....we unplugged for about 20 minutes and the fridge started to cool down again.... but only for a few days then back to warm.

We ended up unplugging and "defrosting" the whole unit for 24+ hours ....Now it works perfectly again.

I think it happens when one or both of the doors is not shut or sealed all the way and engine works too hard and "freezes" up the fans or some other part of the system.......I am just happy I did not have to buy a new fridge.

Cold freezer/warm refrigerator


Same problem with Frigidaire Gallery model#GLRT182SAW5 (dated 2002 on back of case)

Vents were blocked with ice. Vents (from top compartment to lower) located behind light. You can check by poking a chopstick up the (2) holes; be careful not to hit fan blades.

Solution:

- took freezer coil cover off in back; checked that defrost heater element was working (marked and rotated the timer in the hole next to light); checked that fan working. Found ice in the vents and defrost drip area. Got it out with hair dryer.

- cleaned compressor coils in back (check fan is rotating; also tweaked some of the compressor tubing bends to make them more smooth - read somewhere about a manufacturing defect ...); blew out drip tube from defroster while down there.

- Set the freezer control to WARM and the refrig control to COLD (THIS SHOULD IMPROVE AIR FLOW FROM TOP TO BOTTOM).

- Put thermometers in top and bottom. Checked that refrigerator cycles (not running continuously). Checked that cold air is coming down from (2) vents behind light.

OK: so far, so good. Lower compartment is 40 or under. Top is under 18.

CONCLUSION: Suspect marginal design. Had problems with another similar model where defroster ice doesn't drain correctly, pools and refreezes. Leading to blocked vents as well as blocked defroster drain and similar problem including dripping water from top to bottom and warm bottom.

MAYBE KEEPING THE FREEZER CONTROL AT WARM GETS AROUND THE PROBLEM?? ANYWAY, ITS WORKING FOR ME FOR NOW !!
