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

Hi. Your temperature control board display is bad. You may also have a power convertor board located next to the compressor. Normally you would replace the temperature control board first. I have a temperature control board listed on Ebay as item number 250211412492. Good luck, Mack

SOURCE: Freezer won't drain

If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.

How do i remove the rear freezer panel


Remove all the contents from the freezer. Next is remove the the shelves of the freezer by lifting the front of the shelf and then pulling the shelf out of the freezer. Remove screws on the left and right side of the curved panel, located on the bottom of the back panel. Remove the curved panel.
Lift the bottom of the air tower cover, located in the center of the freezer's back panel, straight back and pull the air tower cover down to remove it. Remove the screw from the left side of the evaporator fan opening and from the panel in the upper-left side of the freezer's back panel and pull the back panel toward you and out of the freezer.

Whirlpool side by side (106.56692501). Refrig was not cooling but freezer is. Freezer is slowly heating up though. Unit is still running. It just isn't blowing air into the refrigerator.


You have ice in freezer fins. You need to remove back panel inside of freezer, melt all the ice replace panel, plug refridge back in. The ice causes bad airflow to the refridge side, causing to heat up.

Excessive moisture accumulation in the refrigerator


clogged freezer drain or faulty door gasket, most likely the first one. remove back panel of freezer and thaw out drain completely after removing ice.

Ice build up under the freezer drawer


drain is blocked. remove back panel inside freezer and melt the ice off at the bottom with a hairdryer then follow up with hot water till drain flows freely. if fault reoccurs, then you may have a fault with the defrost system
