Unplug appliance, melt ice on back of freezer, remove panel rear of freezer, find leads to defrost heater and test with a multimeter, if you have condinuity replace defrost termostat, if no condinuity replace defrost heater. after removing panel you will have to melt ice in rear with heat gun before testing.

GE FREEZER ON TOP # GTS22IBMBRWW RUNNING WARM


Hello Steve;

My name is Peter. I am a retried field service refrigeration technician.

You are not locked into the unit defrost mode. When a unit goes into defrost every 8-10 hours for 20-30 minutes, your defrost heater activates, and everything shuts down except for the light.

Lets check it out, possibilities:

1.) You may have a bad temperature sensor. You have two temperature sensors. They are both identical, part number WR55X10025. They cost about $11.00. After you cut the sensor wires off you must splice the new sensor in. These are #203 & #605 on the diagram. Sensor #605 is on the freezer right side wall. It is housed between #634 & #632. There is only 1 screw that you have to remove to access the sensor.
Be extremely careful, before replacing unplug the refrigerator. The evaporator coil fins are razor sharp. This sensor must be position exactly where the old sensor was.
For the small cost of these sensors, it may be worth the effort before you purchase a new refrigerator.

UNLESS:

2.) You may have a restriction or a refrigerant leak. You are feeling cool air because, with a restriction, in the back of your freezer where your evaporator cooling coil is, with a restriction you will have ice built-up in the upper right on the cooling coil. With a refrigerant leak, only part of your cooling coil will have a frost pattern.
There are just a few screws holding you freezer back cover. Slide the freezer rack either to the right or left. Lift up on the opposite side to remove. Having removed the cover. Lean the cover against the back. Close the freezer door. Wait 30 minutes, pull the back cover off and check your frost patter.

You will have to copy the last image and paste it so you can better read the image

Hi, my GE refrigerator has ice developing on the rear wall of the freezer, and things in my crisper drawer are freezing solid,please help!!!!


Unplug refrig. Empty all food from freezer side and remove shelves from freezer. Remove back metal cover from inside freezer. Melt frost with a hair blower. Examine defrost heater at very bottom of the coils you defrosted. If heater coil inside glass tube is broken, replace defrost heater. (note: replacement may look different, but insturctions included with replacement address that) If heater is not broken, replace the small white pencil shapped sensor at the top of the cooling coils.

My LG side by side frig. is not cold enough


Hello,

The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost, this frost will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air around. The fan blade can also hit this frost and either become noisy or stop altogether. Locating the defrost timer can be tricky....they are often hidden behind the back bottom corners of the fridge at the bottom, in the last few years the timers have been located in the ceiling of the fresh food section, and some behind the cold control cover. Once you locate the defrost timer, slowly turn the screw like wheel in the middle of the defrost timer with a straight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. You are now in defrost. If the defrost heater(s) comes on now, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater(s) does not come on, you can ohm test the defrost heater for continuity or volt test for 120 volts to the heater(s). If you have no power to the defrost heater(s) you can also bypass the defrost thermostat to see if the defrost heater will come on, join the 2 wires together to bypass the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad, defrost the fridge with a hair dryer, replace the defrost heater* and defrost thermostat. If the defrost timer seems "hot" to the touch or is noisy ( like a ticking or screeching noise )...replace it.

*One new safety device added to refrigerators in the last few years has been a in-line fuse added to both sides of the defrost heater. If one of these fuses let's go, you must replace the whole defrost heater, as it comes as an assembly. If the defrost heater does not work, you should check for one of these fuses being open. Check it with a volt meter or ohm meter.
On a frost free refrigerator, the cooling coils should be in the freezer section. On a SxS style refrigerator the coils will be behind a cover on the back wall. On a freezer on top style the coils could be behind the back wall or under the freezer floor. Removing the cover and exposing the evaporator coils could be a valuable tool. Seeing what the cooling coils looks like may help split your not cooling problem. Totally covered coils with white snow is a frost free problem. and the rest are bare is an indication of a system problem. System problems may be a leak in the refrigeration tubing, an inefficient not 100% pumping compressor.

Good luck

Frost on back of freezer, not cooling right in both boxes


You probably have a defrost heater, timer, or temperature switch failure. The heater is the most common problem. What happens is frost has clogged the cooling coils and very little cold air is being circulated through it to do the cooling. Clean out the freezer and remove the back panel to thaw out with a hair drier or wet vac blower etc. Now find the cause. http://www.appliance411.com/faq/howdefrostworks.shtml

Turn your refrigerator off and remove the back wall inside your freezer section. Use a hair dryer to melt off all the frost and ice. The frost was blocking the flow of air over those cooling coils, resulting in very little cooling. The most likely cause of this condition is burnt out defrost heater(s). It can also be caused by a bad defrost thermostat, air leakage like a door left open a long time or bad gaskets, or a bad defrost control.

Jenn-air JRSD 226 side by side Fridge


Check to see if there is frost on the rear wall o f the freezer wall. If so, the units cooling coils (behind the frost) may be covered with ice. Defrosting is necessary. The refrigerator may not be defrosting at regular intervals a required. Standing open for a couple of days should defrost it but it will still be necessary to find out why it frosted over. There is a defrost control that automatically melts ice from the cooling coils on a regular basis. Maybe this control is not functioning.

Frost in Freeze


Hi Frezer Frost.
It sounds like your defrost circuit in the refrigerator has gone south. This melts the ice off of the cooling coil in the freezer section every 8 - 10 hours of run time.
If you are old enough to remember the manual defrost refrigerators, that is why you had to defrost them occasionally. The ice layer on the coil acts as an insulator, preventing the coil from working properly.

Freezer not cooling and refer side cooling very little??


it sounds like its not defrosting this is why the frost is on the back. Remove the back panel and defrost coil with a hair dryer. This will restore the unit to cooling temporarily. I can help diagnose why its not defrosting if you decide to attempt the repair
