SOURCE: refrigerator cooling to 59 degrees in non freezer compartment

If the fan is running you more than likely have a defrost problem.
Look at the back wall of the freezer section if it is frosted up. it's not defrosting. This keeps the air from circulating through the refrigerator section.

SOURCE: FREEZER ICED OVER, LOWER COMPARTMENT NOT COOLING

Well, if the service person said the defroster is not the problem, there must be a good reason. But, I would go with a faulty defrosting system. Most likely suspects are the defrost timer and the defrost heating element.

SOURCE: Refrigerator compartment not cooling properly.

Yes The circulating fan behind the rear freezer wall is waring out. The fan with labor and material cost is around $300.00.

if the flap was open then truely excessive cold air is coming out/escape from the freezer causing no freezeing. you need to defrost your fridge.

Note also that frost build up increases time to freeze your food on the freezer. it also causes your fridge an increase in electricity consumption.

defrost your fridge for some time ti remove the frost build-up.

Upper portion (frig not cooling properly) Lower portion (freezer) forming ice on #3 setting.


Is it forming ice or frost? It sounds like an automatic defrost problem. If the freezer frosts up it won't circulate enough air up to the fresh food compartment. Try defrosting it manually for 24 hours by shutting it down and leaving the freezer door open. Afterwards, if it resumes normal operation I would bet that there is something faulty in the defrost circuit, i.e., defrost heater not working or defrost control.

Ice has formed in the freezer of my electrolux frostfree refrigerator & the lower compartments are not cooling. what do I do now?


Could be door has been accidently left open and now ice is blocking the air flow, try switching it off for at least 12 hours with door open to manually defrost ice. Also check that the fan inside the freezer is running.

Model No IK 458 -4-4T; Product No 925 780 652 02 Ser No 14100010. I get ice build-up on floor of fast freezer comp which jams pull-out basket.


If the defroster coil is not working, then ice will build up on the coils inside the back of the refrigerator.

But, you're saying that it's accumulating on the floor of the freezer jamming the pull out basket.

I would say that the timer or overflow valve is bad on this refrigerator causing ice to build up on the floor of the fast freezer compartment causing the jamming.

No air circulating the no frost refrigerator. Electrolux 2 door


It sounds like a defrost problem. Maybe the defrost timer is not advancing or it could be the heater in the freezer. Find the defrost timer and advance it to defrost. You will hear a click and the compressor should turn off. Then wait about a minute, unplug the cord slow. You should see a spark when you unplug. If you do then the heater is working. Change the defrost timer. If no spark then it could be the heater or terminator.

if the freezer is getting cold the problem is due to the cold air from the freezer not getting into the refrigerator. There are several things that can cause this problem. The coils in the freezer icing up and not defrosting properly is one of the things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold enough. Another problem is the fan that blows the cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator, not working. When the compressor is running open the refrigerator's door and push the switch that makes the light go out. You should hear the fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator, when this switch is pushed in. If the fan is working then you will need to find what is blocking the air flow. Iced up coils are a common problem. The icing problem can be due to a defective defrost timer or something defective in the defrost circuit. Click here for more information. Check for these problems and let me know what you have found.

Fridgidare/Electrolux top freezer not freezing fan stays on.


Look for ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
If not, check the compressor to make sure it is running.

Refrigerator on the fritz


The defroster is not working. Ice build up prevents cold air from the freezer chest from blowing into the lower part.

The way the defroster works is this: There is a defrost timer, probably found under the refrigerator at the front, that turns on the defroster three times per day or so. That turns on a heater nested among the freezer coils. It keeps heating until the defrost thermostat gets warm; then it quits defrosting.

I think your defrost timer doesn't turn. You can turn it with a screw driver till you hear a click. Now your ice compartment should be defrosting. With ice buildup it may need lots and lots of defrosting. You might not get cooling back into the lower part for awhile, till the ice buildup melts.

By the preceding, you should know if the defrost timer needs replacing.

If you should need to manually defrost the freezer coils, they are, I think, under the floor of the freezer. To defrost them, I'm told, a hair drier works better than boiling water. The defrost thermostat is in there too, a one inch unit with two wires. It should have no continuity warm, closed circuit frozen. If it has open circuit frozen, that would be your problem.
