Turn your thermostat to a lower number
most often as fridges start to ice up everyone turns the thermostat to try and fix it then when you defrost it is set ti low

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.

Model number KFN9753ID freezer section not freezing. what do you think the problem might be


Might be the defrost timer failing - that happens. The evaporator coils freeze up then, and very little air can pass the ice-clogged evaporator coils.

It's only been happening since the onset of humid summer weather? Check the defrost catch pan underneath - I'll bet it's dry. Defrost the refrigerator manually (unplug the refrigerator, put everything into coolers wrapped in blankets, etc) for a good long while, then plug it back in again - I'll bet the freezer works like gangbusters again for a while. If so, and if it stops again after a day or two... then I'm VERY confident that the defrost timer board is ready for replacement.

Need to replace defrost timer for Hotpoint refrigerator model CSX 20 EASA WH need to know how it look


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Not freezing not cooling. Icing up at bottom


Sounds like you have a side by side ?
The frost build up sounds like you have a defrost problem. What this means is that your frost fee freezer is not defrosting your machine and is overheating the compressor and blocking the air flow to the freshfood side.

There are three things in the defrost system
1. the heater : located behind the back wall, most of the time at the bottom.
2. The limiter : located on the evaperator behind the back wall
3. Defrost timer : located almost anywhere...lol

you didn't provide me with a make or model so i cant look anything for your machine.

any of these componets could be bad if your defrost system failed.

Freezer not working


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Anama bottom freezer


Chances are if they are getting cool -

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator/freezer.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.

GE GSH25JSTA SS side by side fridge not cooling/freezing


In most cases it is the Defrost timer circuit. One of three things the Defrost time (most likely) it allows the cooling for a 6 to 10 hour period and the defrosting for 10 to 30 minutes to remove ice buildup, ICE BUILDUP is the main problem as it restrict air flow, the cooling air circulation through the system. You see cool air only comes in the freezer side and passes through vents (pass ways) to the refrigerator side. Ice buildup in the freezer side inhibits cooling air to the refrigerator side. You think the freezer is working, but it is only cooler because there is ice in there that you can't see. The Terminator (a LIMIT switch) opens the defrost circuit if the defrost heater gets too hot (second likely) the next is the Heater which heats for those 10 to 30 minutes to melt the ice buildup (least likely) no matter the Unit you have they all have this circuit... Hope this helps, I'm Tango

Whirlpool not cooling properly


I would expect the defrost timer to stay in defrost 21 minutes. IT seems your timer is normal.
If turning the ref section temp colder made compressor come on, it could be that the thermostat is worn a little and just needs to stay on a little cooler setting. Check the freezer temp dial and It should be at just slightly more than 1/2 of available setting. If there is A B C you would want to be a little cooler than B about B and 1/4.
I hope this helps K S
