Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

try checking the freezer door seal.
if slight gap anywhere around the door seal drawer fronts will frost up.
warm seal up with hair dryer and ease seal out with your hands..

My biofresh dept keeps freezing and I'm not getting ice in my icemaker


check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!

Why do water accumulate at the bottom of my fridge under the vegetable tray?


If your refrigerator is frost-free, the water accumulates during the defrost cycle and should drain through a tube at the bottom into the evaporator pan underneath. The tube may be clogged or broken.

MY MAYTAG REFRIGERATOR MODEL #MBF2254HEQ IS FORMING ICE UNDER ONE OF THE VEGETABLE BINS. THERE IS AN ACCUMULATION OF WATER THERE AND THEN IT TURNS TO ICE. WE HAVE TRIED LOWERING THE TEMP BUT THAT DOESN'T...


Make sure that the compressor is cutting off at the set temperature and is not cooling beyond.
If Ok then the second part is the leak, check if the condensation is happening into the vegetable section, isit due to constant use, the door is open . now make sure that the tray is cleaned and put on once again to check the water collection.
Look for leaks , if so plug them but it can be condensation, set the fridge temperature lower and make sure the freezer frost is not coming over.

Frost and freezing in the fridge


its warm damp air getting into the fridge causing the frosting if it builds up to much the fridge will find it hard to keep things coold down and you will need to "de-frost" it,,to do this rap all your food up in a blanket to keep it cool them switch off the fridge and put a tub of boiling water in side it leave the door open the frost will soon fall away,,wip out the fridge with "by carb" and switch it back on for an hour or so before you put your cold food back in it

Freezer not freezing, moves from 8 degrees to 34 degrees. Fridge keeps constant 40. Someone said it was frost temp sensor? Cant even get into interior back pannel to replace now I have the part.


There are 2 thermistors for frost and 2 for temperature....Fridge and freezer compartment have one each.

Access to the thermistor sensors are from the inside of the fridge and freezer. You have to remove the shelves, trays and the inside panels to get at them.
The manual will show you how.
There are diagnostics you can run that will tell you which one is in trouble.
There are sensitive voltages that may be required to measure. So from a tech point of view you may need someone with electronics expertise to do the measurements.
The procedures and various measurements are too lengthy to tell you but I will give you the link to the service manual PDF and you or someone can do the diagnostics...The Manual is 87 pages long. Can you imagine a fridge needing that much documentation.

That said. I have the same fridge and have fought 3 different problems...not fun....

here's the link...

Make sure you unplug the fridge before you go taking things apart...

Good luck

Water accumulation underneath the bottom vetable


Two solutions
1 If a frost free fridge/freezer - ice build up in internal cooler - defrost totally until no more water
2 if ordinary fridge/freezer look inside at the back, you should see a very shallow 'V' shaped plastic channel running to a small drain hole which leads to the rear outside of the unit. This channel collects the water drips from the cooler
Clear this hole with a pipe cleaner or cocktail stick or similar

Sheet of ice forms in bottom of freezer


Frost free fidges are supposed to stay frost free because the automatically defrost regularly. When they do this they may drain water down to the bottom of your fridge. Look for a tray that catches this water underneath the unit. Make sure yo keep it emptied. If you live in a very warm climate you may be getting a lot of humidity inside. There may be a switch that you can change for lower moisture.

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.
