SOURCE: evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control

It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: viking freezing evaporator coil

im not sure if still is the case.but there used to be a timer that shuts off the refridge so it self defrost. it is set to do this 1ce a day so the ice or frost does not build up.it is called a defrost timer. if it fails it will not shut down the fridge.most of them are near the front behind the grate.

CHECK THE CONDENSER COILS UNDER THE UNIT. THEY PROBABLY ARE DIRTY AND CANT REJECT THE HEAT.

The coils jeep freezing up I have cleaned the filter


usually means Freon charge is low, you might have a leak..... also, filters don't catch everything. over time what gets past the filter can be trapped in underside of the evaporative coil on top of your furnace..... outside condenser coils may be caked with debris, improper air flow threw coils can produce liquid Freon back to evaporative coil causing it to freeze..
hosing the condenser down will resolve freezing up too

Coils freeze up and fridge runs all the time till I melt coils.


There might be a few causes

Door Seal might be defective causing the door not to shut tightly this causes air from the room to get into the freezer through the opening and as the air comes in contact with the evaporator coils, it freezes. Normally the defrost system removes the ice but if the seal is defective the coils freeze too quickly and the defrost system cant keep up

If the freezer evaporator coils ice over, the defrost thermostat might be defective. Several times a day the defrost heater turns on for a few minutes to melt away any frost that may have accumulated on the freezer evaporator coils. In order for this to work, the defrost thermostat has to sense that the coils are cold enough. If the coils are cold enough the defrost heater will turn on. If the thermostat is defective it may not be able to sense the temperature of the coils and then won't turn on the defrost heater. If the defrost heater doesn't turn on, the evaporator coils ice over and eventually no air will be able to travel through the coils to provide cooling to the freezer. The defrost thermostat can be checked for continuity. It should have continuity when it reaches the low temperature of its operating range.

The fridge keeps freezing over


The evaporator coil is freezing, there could be a number of reasons.

a) drain line is clogged... defrost the fridge and shoot short bursts of compressed air into the drain to clear the clog
b) the defrost sensor on the evaporator coil is faulty... replace the sensor
c) the freezer is so PACKED as to impede air flow... stop stuffing your freezer
d) the defrost timer, defrost coil, etc. is faulty... replace as required

You could defrost your evaporator coil by turning off the fridge for several hours with the doors open, blow dryer, heat gun, etc... depending on skill level

Why does my ac freeze up


Hello, air conditioners will freeze either due to low airflow.....such as dirty filter, dirty evaporator coil, weak or not running blower motor. Also, a low refrigerant charge can cause the unit to freeze up.

Top coil is freezing up, the remaing coils are not getting cold.


low on freon or plugged to the point of where the frost stops on the evaporator. Evaporator should fully frost up on all coils...

Build in kitchenaid, freezer working but not freezing


This video I made how to change evaporator on Thermador refrigerator, which is just copy of of Build in Kitchenaid. Problem was that it was running, but ice cream never got frozen. I checked pressures, was low on freon. I checked evaporator coils - found out that defrost heater got deformed and was touching evaporator coils - so it burned holes, where freon started to leak.( I think it designed not best way). Defrost heater on this fridges way to close to evaporator coils. Check this video to get an idea what Im talking about. I hope That helps u to understand why this repair is so expensive and what causing it.
