Most fridges have a evaporator dish or container.
it must be emptied ...and cleaned and disinfected.

now-a -days they are usually mated with the compressor and cool this unit down. notice there is no coil along the back of the fridge...it is usiually behind the fridge at the bottom with a cardboard or plastic access cover...
this will make the unit cool better and return the cooling to normal....
\next
clean out your freezer...i bet it's full of 4 month old packs of something you'll never eat....this will let the freezer breathe and circulate air to the coil ...i bet it has 3 in of ice on it...yikes...your not alone...most people do this...\
get a freezer if your getting ready for the apocalypse and liberate some room.
good luck

Frig & freezer not cooling enough. Ice forming in back of bottom freezer.


You need to have the defrost cycle checked.( heater, limit stat, timer) If the frig can't defrost air can't move across your coils to cool properly. To temporarily get by until you can get a repairman, use a blow dryer to melt the ice build up. Once melted it will work normally for about 2 days till it freezes up again.

Do you see any ice build up on the back wall of the freezer compartment? You probably have one of the following problems: A failed defrost system, meaning the defrost timer and/or element has gone out and your evaporator coil is frozen over; you are low on freon and this too will cause your evap coil to freeze over until the freon drops so low all cooling stops; or there could be a clog in the capillary tube which is the very small diamiter copper tube that carries the condensed liquid freon to the evap coil. Unless you have gauges, a licence to buy freon and service valves (or a buddy with such) you are limited to what you can do. Here is my advice:1. unplug the frig and let it defrose over night, unplug the frig and empty the freezer to remove the back cover to look for ice, a frozen fan and if so get your hair dryer out and melt the ice so you can test the fan and the defrost element (you will need a volt/ohm meter to do the element check. You can do it.

Hotpoint model #ctxy14epjrwh slow water drip from inside of the refrigerator. inside the top of the frig, center, there are several components that appear to come down from the freezer. the lowest one...


That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the centeroldtech2332_52.jpg

Frigidaire FRT21INLH top frezer refrige its not cooling i hear clicking in the back,friend who use to work on them said sounds like start relay but dont knw if i trust him if that is it were is it located...


HI, sounds to me like ice build up in freezer and the clicking sound is fan blade hitting ice.If you can remove back panel inside freezer and if you see ice, you will need to clear ice which is also blocking vent that goes to frig to cool it.then i would recommend wrapping a heavy guage copper wire around heating element and putting other end down drain tube to prevent the ice build up.

The freezer is working fine but the refrigerator part is warm on the coldest setting and the door has been shut for more than 8 hours.


Hi, I have seen this a lot in my 13 years in maintenance work, the most likely problem is ice build up in back of freezer behind the plastic liner.The drian tub freezes over and when the frig goes into defrost cycle the melted ice has know place to go and covers the air holes that blows into frig to keep it cool. You my have noticed water in the bottom of frig. You will have to either take freezer apart inside and remove ice and thaw out drain tube or unplug frig to thaw it out.

The inside of freezer is leaking from back wall - there is no ice maker. water that leaks is freezing and taking up space. what can be causing this


the drain line is clogged causing the ice build up .the frig has to defrost every 6 to 8 hours so every time it defrosts is when it will leak ..you will have to defrost the frig manually ..turn it off. open the doors. let it defrost. remove the thick ice on the bottom ..after its defrosted take the bottom an back panel off.. un plug frig first !! drainline is in the back in the middle of the freezer. unclogg it hot water or shop vac be carefull good luck!! drain line should go to a pan under the frig, in the back make sure it drains before putting back together

FRIG SIDE ISN'T COOLING WELL, FROST IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER AND IT ISN'T FREEZING THE ICE CREAM HARD, ALSO HASN'T MADE ICE SINCE THE PROBLEM STARTED.


sounds like it should be a frost free unit what happens is they stop auto defrosting and the ice builds up in the freezer compartment where you cant see it leave it switched off to defrost it for a couple of days or take of the pannel inside the freezer so that you can see the ice build up defrost it replace pannel then switch back on but be warned it will happen again

Freezer not freezing


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, controls should be in the middle setting, you can try turning freezer to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
