SOURCE: Refrig not cooling Freezer has frost build up on coils

Frost on the coils won't allow air to pass to the fresh food section, thus resulting in insufficient cooling. To eliminate this problem, you will have to get a new adaptive defrost timer ( small board ), and a defrost heater assembly.

I can tell you if it can be fixed by you or if you need service. Just answer a few questions as we go through this. Pull away from wall and remove the lower panel. Feel top of compressor and see if too hot to keep your hand there or cool. Let me know if freezer fan and fan below are running. Answer those and that will help me answer your questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

THE FREEZER IS BLOWING WARM AIR


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,


Please do rate my solution, If found helpful.

Model 78182891 Coldspot with excessive water Collecting in Refrig


a plugged or frozen drain is a common problem that occurs from time to time in just about all refrigs so the answer is yes it may occur again in the future. But folllow theses directions and it will probably not occur again for 2-3 years.
 
  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order
Post back if you have any questions and I'll gladly help you out Thanks Peyton

Amana refrigerator warm


Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.

Ice acculumates in the bottom of freezer


Defrost drain tube is plugged. Drain is a round hole about the size of a quarter below the evaporator coils. (behind back wall of freezer.) Take a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water and shoot it into the drain hole until water runs through it (into drain pan under refrig.)
