SOURCE: refrigerator internal coils freezes

Shinmo, sounds like your defrost heater went south. Find out for sure. In the back there is a main board. Remove the cover, take a jumper wire with alligator clips. There will be a blue harness, 3 terminals on the board. The board will say, Line, def, comp. Jump line to def. You are now sending 120V. to the defrost heater. pull the back cover and see if the heater is coming on. If not, check for voltage at the wires connecting to the heater. If you have the 120V. replace the heater, part wr51x10055. If you don't have the voltage, it's the board. Catriver.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Not Making Ice, Frost in Freezer and Refrigerator Not Cold

It has a defrost problem.  Most likely cause would be the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator behind the back panel in the freezer.  Next most common would be the defrost timer.  Third would be the defrost heater.  Let me know if you want to try to test these parts.  If so I will need the entire model # from the sticker in the fridge or on older models on a plate at the bottom front below the door.

Sounds like the ice door in the dispenser isn't closing properly or all the way which lets warm air in condensates then freezes.

What if the refrigerator side is not getting cold and the freezer side has a lot of lce on back but does not get that cold eather


Completely defrost your freezer and then plug it back in. A lot of fridges get there cold air from a vent connected to the freezer unit and that could now be blocked by ice. Your cooling coils also won't work correctly once they are covered in ice. So completely defrosting it and letting is sit open for a day or so to get the ice completely melted out of the vent and cooling coils should fix the both problems.

I have a kenmore refri/freezer with top mount freezer. the freezer compartment keeps freezing up in the back, i have to chizzle the ice out every other day..so i called sears and they said it was probably...


Your defrost system is at fault.
Most likely the defrost terminator thermostat attached to the freezer coil.
Could possibly be a bad defrost timer.
I would have to have the exact model number to be more specific.

Hi!!

Make sure drain hose is not clogged up. Check evaporator fan, (small fan in freezer compartment). it should come on after door is open a couple of minutes. Feel air vents in fridge side for a stream of cold air, if none or too weak, remove back cover (where fan is) and check for frozen evaporator coil. If evaporator is frozen, air can't circulate thru unit, keeping fridge side from cooling and freezer side below freezing point.

If this is the case, unplugg unit from power outlet, and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure all vents are clear.

Once the evaporator coil is free of ice, dry freezer, replace back cover and plug unit back on. Check temp. settings, should be about 1/3 of the dial range. If necessary, make additional adjustments every 24 hrs.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!!!

The freezer side is working but no cold temperature in the fridge section of our side by side door with water and ice dispenser kitchaid fridge. Wonder what the problem is?


Hi
If the refrigerator is in defrosting mode, the freezer compartment temperature will be less cold than usual. Wait 20 minutes, and you should be able to feel cold air blowing in the bottom of the compartment. If you have frost on the freezer coil, you probably have a defrost problem. Your freezer should go into a defrost cycle about twice a day. When this happens the compressor and fans shut off and a defrost heater in the freezer coil will turn on heating away the ice. This usually last 10 - 20 minutes. If the defrost coil doesn't defrost it will become a solid block of ice and this will in turn block the air from blowing into your refrigerator compartment. There are several things that can go wrong with the defrost cycle such as the defrost timer, defrost heater, or the defrost termination thermostat.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Samsung RS253BAVQ freezer Keeps defrosting, and wont dump ice


One posibility is that it is not defrosting a all and that the ice is building up on the evaporator coil behind the rear cover inside the freezer. This condition will block the flow of cold air. Remove the back panel to see what your have. Either no ice , light frost, partial icing or heavy icing blocking the fins. Complete light frosting is normal.

Amana SCD25tw side by side. Ice cream very soft, freezer blows semi cold air NOT ice cold. refigerator side seemes ok. I checked coil and it is NOT icy.


If the coil is not iced up then it is not a defrost problem but rather if the coils are not completely cold all over then the compressor is failing or the refrigerant has leaked out.

Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost

My kenmore side by side is not cooling model 106.51574200


Now that really helps the one of two things it can be is the freezer compartment has the coils up there. They are more then likely covered in ice. Ice insulates the coils as to keep air from moving across them to remove heat from system. So take the back panel off in the freezer compartment and notice the shape of the coils. If they have a lot of ice built up on them unplug unit and get your hair dryer out to aid in defrosting unit a little quicker. If the drain tube located in the middle is plugged up with ice take some table salt and pour on the top. Only a couple a table spoons would be enough. let me know
