Remove back wall from inside freezer and melt all frost with a hair blower. The most likely cause of the frost build up is a burnt out defost heater, second most likely cause is the defrost control. Can't give you part numbers because you don't list a model number or even a brand. Melting the frost and not fixing the underlying problem will get your refrig working for a week or so until the frost builds up again.

    I don't think that is the full model number (they use the three pre printed numbers plus the ink stamped part as a full model number) but it is worth getting fixed, especially if you can do it yourself. Try posting the full model number and I'll see what more I can tell you.

Why are only drawers in fridge cold & not making ice?


Contact a professional. Sounds like either your damper door is not operating correctly and not letting enough cool air from the freezer enter, or there is an air leak that is making ice form .

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

The freezer is not cold enough to freeze nor is the temperature in the whole refrigerator cold.


most likely you have a bad computer board if the freezer is getting warm too.if there's no ice on the back wall of the inside freezer wall then it's the board.you can check this site out

I have a side by side refrigerator/freezer & the top sections of both will not get cold or freeze ice. However, the bottom (about 1/3) is getting cold. Any advice?


sounds like either a defrost problem or freezer fan motor problem. open freezer door, hold in light switch and listen for sound of fan motor. if fan is ok. check for frost build up on back wall of freezer. post what you find out.

My ge side by side fridge is not working properly please help me. the freezer side does not freeze anymore it's about as cold as the fridge side what can i do and what is wrong


Check the inside back lower wall inside the freezer. If it has ice built up on it, you will most likely have a defrost problem. This will most likely be a bad heater. You can remove the panel and use a hair dryer to melt ice. The heater is wrapped around the coil inside.

The freezer is cold but not cold enough to make ice


Check the back (interior) lower half of the freezer wall. If you see a frost build up, you either have an issue with your defrost cicuit (timer, heater, thermostat) or the evaporator (freezer) fan is not running. If there is not a frost build up on the back wall you either have a sealed system (weak compressor, leak or restriction) problem....or the condensor fan motor is not working. This would cause the compressor to overheat and shut down until cooled, and prevent the deep freeze.

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 cold enough to freeze items solid


Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.
