In a walk in freezer, the fans are operated through a temperature delay thermostat, (a round disc attached to the coil or coil ends), which delays operation of the fans after defrost until the coil chills back down. This prevents warm air from the defrost heaters circulating in the box. If this temperature delay thermostat is "open" electrically, the fans will not operate when they are supposed to.

Why does my freezer frost up on outside of lid "?"


Where does it frost up? Door gasket? Edge of door? Edge of freezer where the door meets freezer box? The answer ultimately is either lack of or diminished insulation or leaking air around the door gasket. All refrigerators and freezers have heaters around the door to prevent "sweating" or frosting. Check if the economizer switch is set to on, that turns off the door heaters.

Why do I have ice build up in my freezer


Ice build on the freezer box floor or White frost build up on the freezer box back wall (inside). Ice layer on floor means your drain line blocked. White frost layer means your machine is not going into defrost cycle.

Model FPI152TS Fan


If it is frost free? the door may have been left open, and warm air taken in, This in turn creates frost to form around fan, Best thing to try is, Empty it, switch it off, and leave doors open for couple of hours! this will defrost any ice or frost build up.

Fridge not cool enough but frosty at the back


Since you are getting frost in you frost free refrigerator, tell me that the defrost circuit has a problem. It is made of a defrost timer/module, defrost heater and defrost thermostat. What should happen is that the defrost timer should periodically turn off the compressor for about 30 minutes and turn power to the defrost heater via the thermostat. The heater is attached to the evaporator coil and melts any frost build up on those coils.

It sounds like the defrost circuit has not been working for a while because the ice build up is not allowing the air to circulate around the coils to cool the refrigerator. The typical failures to the defrost circuit are the defrost timer motor fails to advance, or the defrost heater burns out. Hope this helps you.

You will have to check the defrost timer to make sure it is turning if it is working properly and you are getting power to the defrost heating element below the freezer coil it should get hot if you have a 115volts or so to the element and it does not get hot then you have a bad element

Not cold enough. freezer works but fridge wont stay cold. i can shut it off for a day and it will work for two more. after that it quits again.


It you have a frost free fridge, then what is happening is that either the defrost element or the thermostat is faulty, causing ice to build up and block off cold air circulation to the fridge. Sometimes the frost builds up around the circulation fan and ceases it up.

That is why when you turn the fridge off for a day, the frost melts and drains out the back of your fridge and so the fridge works ok for a few days until the frost build up again.

Another thing to watch out for is the defrost timer. Sometimes they fail and stick on one cycle and dont advance through. pull your fridge out. The timer is located in the back near the compressor. There is normally a small dial on it. With the fridge turned off, you can twist the dial clockwise and you will hear the timer mechanism click through the different cycles. Make small ink mark on the timer dial. Say at 12 oclock. Turn fridge on. Chech the fridge every couple of hours and see if the mark advances through and does not get stuck in one position for lengthy periods of time. The defrost cycle should normally be around 8 hours and it repeats again.

Let me know if you need more help with the defrost element or thermostat. But it is best to get an experienced repairer to change those.

Good luck

Ice dispenser frost build up - Amana refrigirator


This sounds like your ice may be melting and freezing around the chute. You may need to replace that rubber gasket on the chute. Otherwise, if you use a lot of crushed ice, that will build up badly on the chute and you can manually clean that off. I hope this helps you!

WHAT CAUSES YOUR FREEZER TO HAVE SOO MUCH ICE IN IT WHAT SHOULD YOU DO TO GET RID OF IT


If it is an older style Freezer or one that is NOT FROST FREE, it won't dry the air that is drawn into it every time you open the door . The air around us is full of moisture and that is what builds up and freezes. Frost free systems dry that air out so you get less moisture which in turn means less ice build up. Hope that helps...
