SOURCE: ice build up in back section of a Whirlpool no frost top freezer refrigerator 66"hx30"wx27"d

your sure the defrost cycle works? sounds to me its not. you need to remove the freezer back and check the defrost components. or put it in the defrost cycle and see if it is working. to get that much frost as you describe the dor would have to be left open. also check all door seals. let me know what you find and we can go from there

SOURCE: The lower refrigerator section is not cold anymore

check to see if the fan motor in the freezer is running. all the cooling happens in the freezer and the fan is what circulates the cold air down to the refrigerator.. if the fan isnt running ,it could be a bad connection or a bad fan motor..on some models the doors need to be closed before the fan comes on so just push on the door switch to check .if the fan is running then a defrost problem may be the problem.. you mentioned you defrosted the unit. if the auto defrost isnt working, you would notice frost on the back of the freezer. there would be a lot more frost behind that panel that could block the airflow down to the frig. you would have to remove rear panel of freezer to clear all the frost and restore proper airflow..remember to unplug the frig before doing any work..

SOURCE: Side by Side GE Refrigerator freezer will not

The defrost circuit has failed in your fridge. Typical failure is with the defrost heating element. To troubleshoot, you need to remove the remove the contents of your freezer section and remove the freezer back panel to access the evaporator coil. You will need a hair dryer to melt the ice on coil. The heating element is attached to the coil. Use a meter to confirm that the element is bad. Hope this helps you.

Continuous beeping


Either any door is not closed properly or door sensor is not working,its not sensing the door closed.Or the problem is no defrost.The defrost is causing over ice in fridge or freezer section.

Reset the refrigerator by disconnecting it from wall outlet for 12 hours,then reconnect and see if still the same problem is there.

On some cases its issue with fan not working.There are two fans,one in freezer section and one in fridge section.If either of the fan is not working the controls will flash.

Frigidaire Gallery Warm Refrigerator Cold Freezer


Generally the thermostat that turns on and off the compressor is in the freezer and so is the coils. The control knob that is in the refrigerator section is just to adjust the air flow between the two sections. If the air flow is blocked you don't get cooling in the refrigerator section. This could be a bad fan motor not creating circulation, ice blockage because the defrost cycle is not melting away ice accumulation. If it's defrost problems it could be timer, defrost thermostat, or heater element.

Refrigerator isn't cold enough, but the freezer is fine. Model number is PSS26MSWASS, Serial number is GM439772, I turned up the temp for the Refrigerator, but its not that cold.


This problem is related to defrost.The defrost cycle is not running as it should be. The other possibility can be ice blockage in the ventilations.The defrost is not working,.The evaporator coil in the inner section of freezer is got blocked by ice .
Try manual defrost reset procedure: ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and replaced.
-------------------------------------------------
Check the damper if there is too much water collected in the damper then press the damper and remove the water collected in it. The procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the refrigerator section and the refrigerator section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. Now this problem which you mentioned. In this problem the freezer works but no cooling in fridge, this happens if the thermostat is not functioning or the heater is not heating. Then the ice starts getting collected on the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil is at the internal section of freezer. If too much ice gets
collected then this ice blocks the fan in the freezer section from functioning and this blocks the damper section with ice getting collected there. This all procedure is controlled by the main defrost board of the unit. Now if the damper is not got blocked with too much water or if the ice is not got collected on the damper area then check the evaporator coils. If there is too much ice got collected on the coils, then takes a hair dryer and melt the collected ice. Then see if the problem returns again. But if there is little bit ice collected on the coils and fan is running properly then it's not a problem. In that case main defrost board is faulty and it has to be replaced. The main defrost board is working but its not controlling the functions as required so the freezer works but fridge section not getting cold..

So first try reset procedure.If that is not helping then defrost assembly parts are to be checked and replaced.The defrost thermostat is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.The defrost heater is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.And the defrost control board is located in the fridge section.-------------

Electrolux Side-By-Side Refrigerator making really load noise


You have a defrost system issue! DON'T chip any more ice!! EEEKKS! You are lucky you didn't puncture the freon line! There is no repairing a punctured freon line!! We will send the correct parts to you if you will please provide your model number for this unit. Once you replace this defrost system. you will not have any more icing up issues. You must, however, defrost the unit out before you replace the defrost system. You can do this by unplugging your unit for at least a whole day and by placing a fan in front of the opened up unit to allow it to thaw out PROPERLY. BTW: I love the Electrolux Icon appliances. I hope this resolves your problem and I hope to hear back from you soon. We answer our phones from 7 Am until 9:30 PM CST.

Kenmore elite 596 73503201 no cooling in top compartment


if the freezer is getting cold the problem is due to the cold air from the freezer not getting into the refrigerator. There are several things that can cause this problem. The coils in the freezer icing up and not defrosting properly is one of the things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold enough. Another problem is the fan that blows the cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator, not working. When the compressor is running open the refrigerator's door and push the switch that makes the light go out. You should hear the fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator, when this switch is pushed in. If the fan is working then you will need to find what is blocking the air flow. Iced up coils are a common problem. The icing problem can be due to a defective defrost timer or something defective in the defrost circuit. Click here for more information. Check for these problems and let me know what you have found.

Fridgidare/Electrolux top freezer not freezing fan stays on.


Look for ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
If not, check the compressor to make sure it is running.

Top refrigerator section will not cool


Check the evaporator fan , freezer must have a fan to avoid ice formation, if evaporator does not work, thermic sensor jams up and freezer stop working. The fan is located behind the panel in the freezer.

Check the back of your freezer, If there is frost or ice, then the unit is not defrosting.
This is often caused by problems with evaporator system.
Sometimes you also need to check the defrost timer, located at the top of the FFC on the Top freezer.
Check also the defrost thermostat, which is on the evaporator inside the freezer.
If it isnt defrosting, change both.
