It will not hurt the unit if you let it thaw out and then run it again. However, if you keep doing this on a regular basis, you can burn out your compressor. What are the conditions that the unit is being run under that is causing it to freeze up? Make sure that you run the unit on high cool on warm days so that it will not freeze.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

It's likely low on refrigerant and freezing...turn it off, coil thaws , cools for a short time and freezes up again. Chances are the leak or leaks are at the flares where the copper connects to the unit. Need leaks repaired and systems recharged.

My Maytag MSD2456 ice-maker is leaking water and I can't tell from where to replace the part.


Is you fridge cooling and freezing properly or not? If it's not, your defrost system could be bad and the unit is frozen up not allowing the cold air to circulate, and thawing out the frozen ice, making the unit leak. Give us a call and we'll get the correct parts out to you right away to get you going again. We hope to hear back from you real soon.

Refrigerator stops cooling


Your defrost system is bad. When the unit freezes up, the air flow shuts down and you don't cool. When you turm it off, it thaws out and starts to work again. We have parts so give us a call if you like. Hope this helps! Ella

Maytag refirigerator not freezing/cooling


Turned out to be a bad circuit board on the back of the unit which caused the refrigerator/freezer to freeze up. Replace it, thawed the refrigerator compartment, and it works fine. Cost me less than $200 including service call.

Jenn Air ref/freezer not freezing/cooling


Take the back out of the freezer and check and see if the refrigerator is in defrost while it is cooling if it is replace the timmer, then check and see if the fan on the underside is working if not replace the motor this will cause the problem also.
If all that is ok feel the small line under the refrigerator ( high side) and see if it is hot while it is running if not check the freon in the refrigerator.

Not cooling or freezing


As you've said that started it with freezing up, either the unit has a leak then the refrigerant escapes or restricted system.
In this problem you need a qualified technician to repair the leak or reprocess the system and flush out the restricted system or repair kink pipe that cause restriction.
