Side by side Admiral freezer that has frost

I have a side by side Admiral freezer that has started to build up frost on the back wall. WIth this build up comes warmer refridgerator temps.

If I turn off and thaw it works again, but will start to build frost.
Model number: NS20C7A
Why?

    the tempurture controls are mid range on both the freezer and refridgerator, perhaps slightly past center towards 'coldest'. Does that help?

    Are your temperature controls turned all the way up on both the fridge and the freezer?

Frig has suddenly become warmer than usual. Freezer is at 20 degrees and frig at 60. Tried to vacuum coils but very dificult to reach them underneath the unit. Any other hints?


what the problem most likely is a failed part of the defrost system Do you see a bunch of frost built up on the back wall of the freezer? If you do frost build up, take off the back wall of the freezer and replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. A hair dryer could be used to melt the built up frost from the coil behind the back wall. Another part that will cause frost build up is the defrost control, that isn't the freezer behind the back wall but instead it is part of the main computer board on the back of the refrig. I would replace heater/defrost thermostat first though, since they are the most likely to fail parts.

I hope my answer will help you to fix your refrigerator,

Freezer is cold but refrigerator side is barely cooling. turned off and water leaking out of door on the freezer side


Hello Roxanne,

what the problem most likely is a failed part of the defrost system Do you see a bunch of frost built up on the back wall of the freezer? If you do frost build up,i would take off the back wall of the freezer and replace the deforst heater and defrost termination. A hair dryer could be used to melt the built up frost from the coil behind the back wall. Another part that will cause frost build up is the defrost control, that isn't the freezer behind the back wall but instead in the fresh food compartment in the control panel where the thermostat is. I would replace heater/defrost termination first though since they are the most likely to fail parts.

I hope my answer will help you to fix your refrigerator,

The freezer side not freezing just cool, the


Open freezer door, pull food off shelves on lower half of inside freezer and look if you have frost building up on the back wall of freezer. If you do then you have a defrost heater or thermostat possible gone bad.

Advise if you have frost build up and I will advise on how to check it.

If the frost is on the back wall of the freezer then you most likely have a defrost problem or a bad evaporator fan motor.
