Freezer works fine but the refrigerator part just quits working & ruins all the food. I have to unplug it & the whole tray on the bottom fills up with water after a day, then I plug it back up.

Water under fridge sometimes

You may want to remove all the food, unplug your fridge, and the out the whole thing...melting the ice and cleaning out all the unwanted water. The drawer will be removable, and you can dry under it. Also check the overflow tray under the fridge, if there is'll be full from all the melting.

Mine bottom freezer 10 or so year old unit did the same thing, problem was the thermal switch ("clicks on") on de-ice circuit was broken. Quick "fix" is to defrost the unit by shutting it off, putting frozen food in a cooler. Once the ice melts the path for blowing cold air UP to the frige will be opened. Will work fine for days until the freezer ices up again.

Most likely the "clicks on" or thermal swithch that is bad and will not let the defroster heater work. Easy fix. Everything is BEHIND the pull out frozen food tray. Remove a couple of screws and you will see all the ice. If I remember correctly my clicks on was just to the right of center and took only 5 minutes to replace after defrosting the unit.

Hope this helped,

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Try switching off the unit for some time and turn it On... Check for the working of the unit..If it works properly then you don't need to worry... If not then the unit needs to be diagnosed/repaired if required...Don't worry...There should not be anything like ruining the complete unit or something. Just the fault needs to be diagnosed if any such occurs.

Best of Luck,

You might be developing an ice dam in the bottom tray of thr freezer that is obstucting the flow of cold air to the refigerater part of the unit. remove frozen items so you can see the bottom tray and see if you notice an exccesive amount of frosting on said floor tray, if so you are probably experiancing a defrosting problem.Check to see if you can feel cold air coming in from the top back section of the refrigerator. There is a fan that blows across the coils in the freezer section under the floor tray, if you cant feel the air either your fan has quit or you are froze shut.You can try a temp fix by removing food items to a cooler with ice or another unit and unplugging this one and letting it thaw out, be sure and put down a towl or two on the floor the tawing ice will go to the evaporater tray underneath and overflow once its thawed plug it back in and let it cool down. Check again to see if you can feel air in the frig. if you cant your fan has quit, you need to seek local appliance tech help they should be able to get you going for a fairly inexpencive amount.
