Freezer does not defrost automaticly, its full of ice??


Hello,

This is intended as a guide to defrosting a refrigerator that has the freezer on the top. Side by sides and bottom freezers may be similar but will require some different procedures to remove covers to get at the defrost coils.

If your refrigerator is not cooling but your freezer is still working then you most likely have a problem with Ice buildup. Sometimes the ice will start to form inside the refrigerator on the bottom of the freezer compartment, even though the refrigerator section is not staying cool.

1. Empty out the freezer section so that you can remove the bottom panel that covers the evaporator coils. Side by side refrigerators often have the access panel in the back of the freezer.
2. Use a hair dryer or fan to speed up the melting of the ice. Towels will be needed to soak up the water. A wet/dry shop vac and a hair dryer work the best. Melt with one and collect the water with the other.
3. Take the couple of screws that hold the defrost coil loose and remove the heater. With an Ohm meter check the resistance of the coil. If the coil is bad you will get either and open or shorted circuit. If you get a good consistent resistance then it is okay.
4. If your heater coil is good and the fan/blower is working then you probably need to replace the defrost timer or advanced defrost control board, whichever is in your unit.


Replace all pieces and wires to their original positions and then restart the refrigerator. It may take a bit for everything to cool back down, especially in warm weather. Now with everything working properly you should be trouble free again.

Take care in solving the problem....

I have an Amana BX21VW refrigerator and both the freezer and refrigerator stopped cooling. The fan is still going and there is power, but no cooling of any kind. What is going on?


Hi!!

Check

Temp. control knobs,

Most likely, the evaporator coil is covered w/ice, obstructin the air flow thru it and to the fridge side of the unit.

Remove freezer back panel (where the little fan is) and check for iced evaporator coil, if so, unplug unit and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure all ice is melted andthe air duct going to the fridge is clear.

Once this is done, restart unit and set temp. 1/3 of the dial, ie. if the dial goes from 0-9, set it on 3. wait 24 hrs to make adjustments

Keep me posted!! Rate this post!!!

Refrigirator side not cooling but freezer side is working, fan is working


if you open the freezer back wall you see that there is ice all over that prevent colld air go to the fridg.
use hair dryer to melt all the ice (turn unit off)
then you might need to replace the heat unit or the thermostat in the freezer to prevent it to build ice again.

My Model ED5HHAXVQO2 REFRIGERATOR IS NOT COOLING. THE FREEZER IS NOT FREEZING BUT IT SEEMS TO BE BUILDING UP FROST.


Sounds like your auto defrost is not running long enough to melt the ice that develops on the coils. You can easily fix this problem by using a hair dryer and removing the back panel in the freezing unit to reveal the coils. Once this panel is out use the hair dryer to melt the ice. Once the ice is cleared this should restore air flow across the coils. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Freezer freezes up causing the refrigerator side not to work


you probably have a bad defrost timer. This item will turn on a hot coil to melt the ice when it needs melted. If you coils are solid ice then the cold air cant travel to the refrigerator side to cool it. This air is moved with a fan and the ice blocks the movement. Melt all the ice with a hair dryer and put the cover back on u will be good for a bout a month and if defrost timer is bad it will clogg again.
