Question about Refrigerators
My freezer isn't freezing and I took the evaporator cover off and noticed that the bottom coil has thick layer of frost and also the copper tube leading into it. How do I fix this issue?
If the bottom rung of the evap coil is the only part frosted, or frozen and no other parts of the evap coil contain frost, you are most likely low or out of freon. An experienced repair company should be called out to verify this. If the freon is actually low, recharging the unit is not a plausible option because there is a leak. A repair or replacement of the fridge is needed. Pleazer Appliance...

you may need to clean the drain tube again. the only other place that water may come from is the ice maker if it is over flowing. this however would be very obvious. use some thing like a length of cloths line cable to "snake" the drain after you defrost it. the fastest way to defrost it is to use hot water and a turkey baister. good luck.

a defrost problem, is gonna cause excessive ice build up in hte frezzer lower compartment. for somereaon the hdefrost heater was not energized. most common reason is a bad defrost thermostat, clipped on one of hte evaporator coils has gone bad,

This sounds like a defrosting problem. There is a defrost timer, a heater element, and a therm-o- disk thing that shuts the heater off when the frost is melted. These are the things to check, but it's usually the heater that is burnt out.

The black thing is the compressor. It should run warm but not hot. This usually indicates it's time to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Try using a long soft brush and your vacuum cleaner.

The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.
