SOURCE: Sub-Zero 511 Freon Leak

Paul, we have the same problem with a built-in Kitchenaid and the price of replacing the fridge is out of sight for us. Where did you get the equipment to check the freon and replace it?

SOURCE: water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer

Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

SOURCE: I have a side by side Maytag Refrigerator model

We had this model as well. It is part of the fridges 'defrost system' that prevents icing up in the freezer. I had replaced the computer chip in mine (at a cost of about 150 bucks), when at one point when it failed, and the freezer starting freezing over, and after it was 'fixed', it started leaking water onto the floor again. After another year, we finally bought another fridge. Solution... buy another fridge

Why did fridge stop working, then freezer 4 days later?

how it works. 6 month ago another technician came to this service call and found out that system is low on freon. So he charge it up with freon and add leak dye into the system. Leak was really slow, so he could not find at first. Here Im 6 month later, found leak dye with special light (dye leak set (tools) cost about 180$), did not need to order any parts, but replaced copper tube. Customer paid around 600$ for repair total for this repair. Hope That Helps!

Why is my Samsung french door/freezer not working

It is very rare to have a freon leak. It is possible but there are there are things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold. Is the compressor running. Are the fans running. Is the freezer or refrigerator coils blocked with ice. Usually freon is the last place i look.

Unit is not coolingon eitherside freezer and fridge

Do you have power to the unit? Do you hear the fans running? Is the compressor running? If you answered yes to all of these then call for service, you probably have a freon leak. You could have a defrost issue, check the back wall of the freezer and see if it's covered with frost. Your best bet on a Samsung is to call for service and expect about $350 for the repair if it's not a freon leak and about $700 if it is a freon leak
