2) Some refrigerators contain timers that control the self-defrosting heaters. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find the timer, depending on the model of your refrigerator. In most cases, side-by-side refrigerators that have temperature control knobs at the top of the fridge compartment often have the defrost timer located near the thermostat behind the control knobs. It looks like a small, round object with one flat end that has four electrical prongs. It is also often located in the control panel, behind the fridge or behind the foot kick panel at the base of the appliance. Use a flathead screwdriver to advance the timer until you hear a click. This should start the defrost heater. If it doesn't, the timer probably needs to be replaced. Continue to turn it clockwise and a second click will be heard, which turns off the defrost heater. If the timer isn't clicking, simply pull it out and "plug in" a new timer.refrigerators that don't have timers have control panels that control the self-defrosting unit instead. The control panel can sometimes be tested using the controls on the water dispenser or by removing the rear of the front panel to access the controls. A simple press of the button will run several diagnostics that will test your defrost timer, thermostat and heater. The specific instructions vary depending on the model of your Kenmore refrigerator. Consult your owner's manual to run the diagnostics if you have a control panel in your refrigerator.

If the freezer is freezing everything, check the coils. A refrigerant leak will cause ice to build up on the coils, not extra ice in the fridge. ... A leak in the compressor or coil will chill the air around the leak as long as it is outside, but a leak into the fridge could cause it to get extra cold.31 Aug 2015

Coils freeze


Either your coil is blocked with paper or wrap, or you have a refrigerant leak in the coil and the little bit of gas that's left is flashing as it enters the coil. Make sure that the cooling coil and condenser is clear and the fans are running. That's all you can do without refrigeration tools. Good luck and hope this helps

My Airconditioner has ice forming and no cooling. can u suggest what the problem cud be?


Most likely a slow refrigerant leak. When the refrigerant is low, it actually gets colder and causes freezing in the coil. Another possibility is the coil is dirty, not allowing enough air flow through the coil. You didn't indicate if this is a room air conditioner or one attached to your furnace.In either case the coil should be cleaned first. Then if it is still freezing, you will need to have the leak repaired and refrigerant (freon) added to proper level.Normally the coil is not below freezing, but when the pressure drops too low it gets colder and then the condensate that normally drips off the coil freezes.

Frigidaire central unit freezing up leaking


The coil freezing can be caused by a couple of things. 1) Not enough air flow over the coil or 2) A low refrigerant charge. First make sure that the indoor fan is running. Then check your air filters and make sure your evaporator coil is clean. After that you can get the refrigerant charge checked. The lower the refrigerant pressure is, the lower it's boiling point is and when it gets below 32F then the evaporator coil and usually the low pressure line freeze up. The leaking you were talking about is probably from the ice melting. Hope this helps.

GE Profile refrigerator temperature problem


refrigerators have 2 coils. the evaporator coil and the condensing coil. one is on the bottom of the fridg and one is on the back or inside behind a false panel. these coils must be kept clean or if the condensing coil cannot reject the heat absorbed by the evaporator, the box temp will stay high and if the evap coil cant absorb heat the box temp stays low running the risk of freezing

The problem is freeze up. Bad door gasket or too much window shopping are the biggest issues. Could be low gas. Either take off the back freezer panel and defrost or unplug for 2 days to defrost fully. Oh, and clean the condenser coil. Then, let's see what the unit does.
