when it stops cooling, you will see some ice build up in the freezer. Letting it sit unplugged melts the ice and you will see some water under the fridge. Connect power and it works. Cause: don't overload the fridge and the freezer. Make sure the doors close snugly. Clean all lint build ups by vacuuming under and behind the fridge after switching off power.

Three things come to mind:
A) High humidity has overwhelmed the defroster & blocked the passageways so air will not circulate. (Put important food in a cooler, turn the temperature dial to off & leave doors open until ice melts out. Generally overnight. Be prepared to mop up excess water)
B) Defrost timer stopped working. (Generally behind a cover panel on the fridge side. Un-plug unit & remove panel to find a small metal box in the airflow path from the freezer. They generally have provision to manually turn the timer wheel with a screwdriver. Plug back in & allow to run & see if the ice melts. If so, the clock motor is shot. Replacements can be bought on-line)
C) Burned out defroster heating element. Generally older units. (Un-plug & put essentials in a cooler. Remove cover panel on freezer side to expose cooling coils. Allow ice to melt overnight, (again, lots of water). In the AM you can see the glass tube enclosed heater coils. All dark & smokey inside, heater is burned out. Replacements on-line for ~ $75.) If the unit is more than 15 years old, consider a more energy efficient replacement.
Good Luck!

FREEZER IS FINE. FRIDGE STILL NOT COOLING


it sounds like your circulation fan is not working. it is located in the freezer compartment in front of the evaporator or very close to it. you should hear running either all the time except in the defrost cycle. on some models the fan will shut down when you open the freezer door and restart when you close it. if the fan is OK you have a problem in your defrost circuit. probably a bad heating element or a bad defrost cutout switch or bad connections in the freezer compartment. sometimes the defrost timer can go bad but not often. I have found in my experience that the problem is usually the other two components I mentioned or bad connections.

Removed inside rear and floor panels of freezer (ice machine also) as ably advised by your tech. Found ice damming he suspected underneath floor panel. Thawed overnight with pot of hot water in freezer. could see that small rear drain tube was iced shut; why all water going into fridge below. Avoided floor mess from thawing water flow to evaporation pan on floor by tilting unit forward on blocks and laying several old towels inside freezer door to catch water that would run out. Also placed some in front at base of unit on kitchen floor. Continuing to thaw pipe to unclog, it is iced some way down, again as tech said it might. Will reassemble and be careful with freezer setting, in case it may have been too cold. Also, some food crumbs had found their way behind panel near this drain tube and may have fallen in to block it. Will clean out any remaining.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge ice accumulation inside and water dripping outside


Hi, Are you getting ice build up in the freezer side as well? There is a air shuttle between the fresh food side and the freezer side. thwater might be getting in the freshfood side from there. Look at the bottom rear panel in the freezer for ice build up. Ig=f there is ice, you will need to get to the drain from inside the freezer and check for blockage.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

Ice forming on freezer


The drain is plugged. This fridge will defrost every 8 hrs or so. When it does , it will melt the frost that has built up on the evaporator. This melted frost will run down a drain under the evaporator to a drain in the bottom directly under the evaporator. When the drain gets plugged the water cannot drain out of the freezer compartment. After several defrost cycles the melted frost will overflow onto the freezer floor. When the fridge starts back up it will freez this water is the bottom of the fridge. sometimes this water that is now ice will melt on the next defrost cycle and actually run out into the floor. You will have to unplug the fridge or turn it off, then remove the cover to the evaporator. Get a hair dryer and melt the ice aruond the evaporator and drain. Once the ice is removed, check the drain and try to clear it. Once clear, replace everything but the shelves. Plug the fridge back in or turn it back on. Observe and listen for the evaporator fan. It should be running now. When working on the ice on the evaporator always be carefull. The defrost heater can be damaged if up push or pull on it too much.

Ariston fridge freezer


hi smyvilla

on some fridge freezers there is a channel which is designed to take condensation from the fridge out through a small hole at the bottom of the back wall of the fridge check this hasnt got blocked or iced over, if the unit is a few years old it is possible that there has been some evaporation or leakage of the coolant mixture, that may be whats on your floor, the pump can therefore no longer pressurise the mixture sufficiently to cause it to remain cold,
