Freezer frosting up and refrigerator is warm


check the condenser fan in the lower back to make sure its running,if it quits the compressor will cycle on and off to cool itself instead of the fan doing this operation,and the unit will warm up inside,then the compressor will again restart and any condensation in the unit will refreeze and cause frost

Fridge warm. Freezer frosting over. I've


Hi


Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer ( evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if it is running.
If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.

There can be many factors for the no cooling factor: the condenser coils could be blocked with dust, the condenser fan could be bad or stuck, the freezer fan could be stuck or bed, the freezer coils could be blocked with frost because the self-defrost system is not working or the compressor is not running because of a bad relay etc.

You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

However there are various reasons as to why refrigerator is not cooling. Please check this link to get an in-depth knowledge related to your issue:-

Unit not cooling down,compressor running,condenser fan running. suction line just cool,condenser line barely warm.


Check if evaporator fan is running. Is there any frost buildup on freezers evaporator cover? If so you have a defrost problem (bad heater, defrost thermostat, thermister, defrost timer or circuit board ). If no frost and the freezer is warm then you most likely have a sealed system problem(leak, restriction, bad compressor) which is costly to repair.

I have a hotpoint frostfree freezer that is over


Since this is a frost free refrigerator/freezer, you shouldn't need to defrost it, and the frost should not be building as you describe.

If your OK with diagnostic troubleshooting techniques, and have a volt-ohm meter and know how to use it, we can figure out whats wrong with your unit.

Fridge on Fridge freezer not working


Ok there is a drain pan under the evap. coil under the fan that may be clogged and full of ice there is a 3/4" hole the water drains out of that needs cleared if there is a puddle of ice over it , the ice will also effect the airflow traveling down the duct to the fresh food section of the unit.
If there is no ice puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator then make sure the unit is cooling well by making sure it has been running for 10 min. or so and checking the coil in the freezer , it should have a small layer of frost on it showing its getting cold the whole way through it. Let me know how this works.

Fridge is not cooling and now the freezer is not freezing


problem is that the defrost system is not working.
remove back panel inside freezer and you will find pipework is full of ice. melt off carefully with a hairdryer. appliance will now work as this serves as a temporary repair
fault finding is not so easy but check that the defrost heater is not open circuit and check the thermal fuse in series with the heater is ok.
some frostfree are controlled by a simple mechanical timer which can also be faulty. if electronically controlled, you may be looking at a new module. get back to me if you want more help
