SOURCE: Fridge will not get cold

Was your fridge transported upright at all times? There are warnings on most brands not to lay them down due to potential damage. If that was not the case, those small units are often easy to repair.

[Note to garing: The person said there was no ice anywhere but on the back. Dorm sized refridgerators are rarely frost free, so your answer was pointless.]

Why does my refrigerator turns off restart a couple days later ?


Could be the back of the freezer is not defrosting and is packed up with ice. The cold air then can't circulate to the fridge part as the fan is frozen solid in ice. Had this happen due to a faulty transducer that tells the defrost system the freezer is iced up and to go into defrost mode. Also it could be the fan that blows cold air down into the fridge from the freezer compartment.

I have a 3.3 fridge/freezer-the back wall of the fridge has a buildup of ice ???


Sounds like either: 1) The thermostat is set too low.
2) The defrost control is bad
3) The main drain in the freezer has frozen over not allowing water to drain.

RRTG18PABB HAIER LEAKING WATER FROM FREEZER TO FRIDGE PORTION


Make sure it is not the fill tube from the ice maker first. Yes I would think ice or sludge is blocking the defrost drain and causing water to flow into freezer and then to the floor. Here is more about leaking refrigerators=> Leaking Refrigerators
Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice is forming on the back wall of my freezer


The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

Oklahoma Freezer cold fridge warm fan gets Ice build up !


You should not have to manually defrost. Your auto defrost system is not working. Check the timer usuall in the frig compartment near the thermostat ( a small hole, use a screwdrive flat tip 1/4" to rotate the timer till it clicks starting the defrost cycle) check freezer in 10-15 min should be defrosted if not you will need to check the heater and thermostat located behind the rear or bottom panel of the freezer.

The defrost timer could be under the box in the front behind kick panel or in the rear by the compressor.

Not keeping food cold and popping noise


There is ice buildup in an area that you cannot see.

The interior wall may "bulge" a little if the ice builds up a lot.

1. You may have the cooling dial set too high (use lower numbers)
2. The blower vent into the fridge or freezer maybe blocked (move items away from vents inside)
3. Defrost the fridge. The water pan underneath the refrigerator may overflow.

If there is no "defrost" setting, unplug for an hour (don't open refrigerator or freezer during defrost)

Plug back in, food will not spoil.
