Why is it building up ice on three coils?

Hi, for your air conditioner you'll have refrigerant coming from the compressor (cold) to the coils - when it leaves those coils - the refrigerant has basically absorbed that heat - and it's on its way out to the evaporator - sometimes the other set of lines actually gets hot. If you have ice on your coils - could you check your fan and make sure it's operating correctly. The absolute only thing keeping those coils from icing up is the fan drawing air over the coils - no air/not enough air flow - it doesn't function properly and your coils will ice up.

You have an iced up evaporator (cooling coil). This coil is usually located in the freezer section. A small fan distributes air across this coil and into the refrigerator. If coil is block with ice, no air can be blown across the coil. Coil is blocked with ice due to failed defrost timer on main circuit board or a failed defrost heater.

Samsung "Cool-n-cool" fridge freezer defrosting food

Is it "defrosting" the food or unable to keep it frozen? Probably unable to keep frozen. Many possible problems. 1. Defrost element bad and evaporator coil is iced over, or 2. Failed evaporator fan inside freezer, or 3. Low freon causing iced up evaporator coil....Do you see any ice build up on the back wall of freezer? Do you hear the freezer fan running or not? Take a look and get back to me.

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.

Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

If you need freon you can't do it yourself

Could be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

My amana side-by-side SQD26V is not keeping cool. Just opened the freezer up and found ice around the coils (back part of freezer). My husband is using a hair dryer to get the ice off the coils.Where do we...

first off make sure that the drain on under the coil is cleared, then when the ice is gone and you turn the unit back on the coil should first get good and cold before the fan tries to come on . you will have to temporarly put the cover over the coil to do this. let it run until there's good frost on the coil and then the fan should come back on. that would rule out the motor,and the thermostat. thanks for unsing FIxYa
