Clean the filter and the coils. Home depot has coil cleaner in a spray can that will work well for this. Make sure you have good air flow across the evap. If this doen't work, it could be low on refrigerant charge.

Deli case icing up at evaporator inlet


Most deli units are gravity cooling units and it is normal for the evaporator to be iced up if your unit has fans it still is not unusual, the ice will melt when the unit cycles off. If the evaporator is only iced up on one end, you are low on freon.

Refrigerator is not cold but motor is running.


Hello and Welcome to Fixya,

This is one of the most common problems in most of the refrigeration appliances. What's going on here is that the condensate drain hole in the freezer gets plugged with ice. Once this happens, all the frost melted off the evaporator during subsequent defrost cycles can no longer drain and so spreads out on the freezer and dribbles down and also chokes other components. Here are the instructions that you need to follow inorder to get rid of the problem:

  • Unplug the refrigerator and pull everything outta the freezer, and I mean everything.
  • Remove the bottom panel inside the freezer so you can see the condensate trough in the back of the freezer.
  • Notice that the condensate trough is filled with ice- all that has to be cleared out.
  • Take it easy back there, delicate parts are exposed- don't start hacking at it with an ice pick because there are chances that you'll just end up puncturing the evaporator and you'll turn a simple, inexpensive repair into a majorly expensive one.
  • Use hot water to drain all the frosted ice that is visible.
  • Re-place all the units removed during the process.
  • Once all the ice is cleared away and the condensate drain opening is cleared, you are done.


Best of Luck,

Fridge/freezer works fine but a squiling sound is coming from the fan in the freezer, but only when its not running


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This usually happens, if there is excess choking from ice in the evaporator coils...The excess frosted ice in the chamber extends to the evaporator fan, thus trying to choke/stop the fan... Whenever the fan gets start pulse from the controls, it hurdles the movement and the noise comes. Remove the blockage to the fan (if any), else you need to change the fan motor bearings...

The fan is producing continuous sound. looks like the fan is not rotating. It stops for a while and then, in couple of minutes, it starts again.

Refridgration is not cooling


hi
same thing happened to me with a westinghouse upside down fridge freezer yesterday. i talked to a mate of mine who is a refrigeration mechanic and he said to check the air flow going into the fridge via the freezer and to see if the fan above the evaporator was working. he also said you would probably have to have the fridge light switch depressed as the fan is designed to only run when the fridge door is closed. when i removed the cover in the back of the freezer to inspect the fan i found the fan was spinning okay, but my evaporator was choked up with ice. i gave it a good defrost and clean out and everything seems okay now. i think the heating element around the evaporator (frost free) is not working and that is why it has iced up. apparently it is very important to have good airflow in and around the evaporator so if it is iced up or you have too much stuff in your freezer it will not be efficient and your refrigerator performance will suffer.
to have a rough idea on whether you have enough gas in your system, he suggested feeling the pipes coming out of the compressor. in normal conditions one should be quite hot to touch and the other should be a little bit cooler than room temperature. your condensor (which is the big coil up the back of the fridge should be warm and your evaporator (coil behind a cover in your freezer should be cold to touch)
hope this helped

Check the condensor coils in the base - probably choked full of dust and lint. RTFM!
