Question about Refrigerators
Hi, The fridge section of my fridge-freezer keeps icing up (the milk freezes!). The freezer is working as it should. I have removed the temperature control panel inside the fridge and everything looks ok. No ice/blockage and the vents seem to be opening and closing well. Any ideas? Thanks! I have a Kelvinator Impressions 401 (400 Series) fridge /freezer

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.

Madezmom, you have a defrost issue. If your model starts with 106 you more than likley have a bad defrost bi-metal, I will attach a picture of bad one. This sits on the evaporator in the freezer section behind the panel. You will have to remove the shelves and remove the back panel. Defrost the evaporator completely. The part number for the bi-metal is 2196155. See if yours is bulged like the one in the attached photo. If so, that's your problem..Catriver..post back.

drain is blocked. to check, pour water into drain gulley in fridge and it should flow away. to clear, push sometthing flexible down the hole. good idea to pour dilute bleach down hole now and again

A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas.
Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.
You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer.
Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.
Watch its operation more closely to see if any same symptom.

You should be able hear, and feel the air from, a running fan inside the cabinet, in either side. The common arrangement is having the coils located (behind the wall) in the freezer section and then the fan moves a controlled amount of the frigid air to the refrigerator section via openings located in the rear of the compartment. The vents are normally adjustable so the temperature can be balanced between the two compartments. If there is no noticeable air coming from this vent, then the fan has died.

Without seeing this I can't tell you a price or exact fault but the first free thing to try that could likely fix it. unplug the unit from the power and leave both the doors open for 48hrs so the unit is 100% defrosted then try again. cheers.
