Re: Breezair unit icing up
in this case thermostat is not functioning if this a no frost or frost free,if the fans inside is not working too.feel if air is blowing,if no blowing of air inside freezer,fan is defective,try to check fuse on the line goin yo fan there is fuse there,replace fuse.also check thermostat if functioning,if you can disconnect thermostat,disconnect it check this by soaking into ice bucket with ice the filler bulb of thermostat,the two terminals hook it by multitester setting to R1,observed the deflection about 12 minutes if the pointer does not deflect to high resistance this thermostat is defective replace.this should be done by a/c technician.have a nice day,dont forget to rate me ,thank's

sounds like you have no water coming in...pull the line..make sure u got water..vacuum out the back fins and bottom so theres no dust or build up on the cooling fins..clean the inside..plug it in and try it..
There is a fan in the back of the freezer that runs when the compressor is running. It sounds like you have ice build up around the fan. You could have one of these problems: (Sorted by most likely to least likely) 1) Auto Defrost timer, defrost bi-metal or defrost heater is defective - the unit will go into auto defrost about twice a day, if this fails you will have lots of ice built up around the cooling fins and sometimes on the fan. Pull the back off the inside of the freezer and check for ice build up around the cooling fins, there should be none or very little if its running normal.
2) Bad door gasket - if the freezer door is leaking warm moist air inside the freezer it could be condensing around the fan causing ice (you will also see ice build up on things inside your freezer too).
3) Plugged drain - the drain leads from the freezer down to the drain pain under the fridge. If this is plugged ice will build up on the bottom of the freezer and potentially around the fan.
Could be the defrosting that is not working. The fan starts touching the ice build up on the back that then causes the noise. A few days later the fan will get stuck on the ice as it keeps on building up due to no defrosting taking place. Unit will keep running as the set temperature inside the cabinet cant be reached because the air distribution will get blocked of due to the ice build up and stuck fan.
I think the more likely problem is that the unit is slightly short of gas\ refrigerant, which is a common cause of icing up evaporator coils and this sound you describe. First check that the air filter is clean. Another cause could be the defrost sensor is faulty, but I would think not. Some ice isn't actually a bad thing, but quite common as long as it doesn't form over too much of the coil, or get too thick.
It sounds like your defrost controller has gone bad. I have an LFC25760 and had ice build up in the bottom of the freezer such that water would start leaking onto the floor. The ice build up in the bottom of the freezer was due to a failing/bad defrost controller. Behind the back white wall in the freezer compartment exists the cooling fins along with a heating element underneath. Due to moisture that comes into the freezer from opening it, frost/ice builds up on the cooling fins. Thus the defrost controller turns on the heating element to melt the ice/frost off of the fins which then drips into a metal pan which channels the water to a drain hole which drops into the drip pan underneath the fridge next to the fan. The problem is that the defrost controller doesn't keep the heating element on long enough or the cooling cycle comes on too soon thereby freezing the water and plugging up the drain. I had my defrost controller replaced (just outside the warranty period!) and it worked for about 1-month and then same thing happened again. Instead of paying for another defrost controller that would probably not work 100% my serviceman used the old paper-clip trick. He took a paper clip, stretched it out and then wrapped one end around the heating element and placed the other end into the drain hole. Thus when the heating element comes on the paper clip keeps the drain hole warm/hot and prevents the water from freezing. It has been 9 months since this fix and I haven't had any ice pooling in bottom of the freezer.
Not sure of what type of fridge you are refering to.. However you can try a few obvious things.
Try turning the thermostat to a lower number (warmer setting) to see if that makes a difference.
If you have an ice build up starting to form on the fridge plate or only a partially cold plate then you could have either a loss of refrigerant or compressor fault.
Is the compressor noisey in comparisson to its normal noise.
Is there heat being produced all over the condenser (black finned section on back of cabinet or underneath cabinet)..If not possible gas leak.
Hope this is of some help.
If the air flow is restricted or partially blocked (dirty cooling fins, filter etc), ice will form inside becaue the air stays in ithe cooling coil or fils for a long period of time.
Lack of freon will not cause Ice formation because there is not enough cooling power.
