Question about Refrigerators
Ice accumulation inside my fridge even after defrosting it manually how to avoid this and why it happens
IS your refg a frost free? If not you have a manual defrost with cold
plates. The only way to defrost these is just as your doing it.
As to what causes the frost buildup; Its a combination of the amount of air that gets into the refg when the door is open, the amount of run time the compressor is made to do, and the humidity in the air around the box. There is no way to avoid it if your going to open the box the air inside will fall out (cold air is heavy) and new warmewr air will be sucked in every time the door is opened.
If its an automatic = frost free type you have something wrong in the defrost circuit. 3 main parts are the
1 defrost timer (or electronic monitor board with electronic sensors),
2The defrost heater
3 the defrost safety limit.
If this helps you decide to repair it yourself well thats another big box or questions. And it is rather lengthy. The tools and how to use them are 1 An ampmeter or volt meter with Ohm scale, a putty knife, a screwdriver streight and phillips, nut driver 1/4" size and 5/16", knowledge of checking a closed circuit and open circuit and how ohm - resistance in relation to volts and watts works.
If you feel better calling someone I suggest this tell who ever it is we talked and you understrand there are 3 main components that allow defrost and you would like him to explain each of them 2 you and show you what they look like. Then next time you have a problem you will have some basic knowledge of where these parts are and what they do and look like. Kind of getting double your moneys worth
