Frozen Freezer Coils

Have a GE side by side, the coils in the freezer compartment continually freeze up, does not appear to me that a defrost is cycling, the refrigerator does not stay cold, I have defrosted the coils several times, by unplugging, but within a week we are back to the totally frozen coils. Is there a defrost sensor, timer, or perhaps the heater coil being a problem.

You first need to check your defrost heater for continuity if none this is your problem if it has continuity it is good and you will need to replace your adaptive control board part # AP4010220 ? Enter your complete model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for illustrations and correct parts. The model # listed should have a few more digits thats why I ? the part # I listed. There is also a troubleshooting page that can help walk you thru testing these components.

The freezer is not working properly. Measured temp at almost 40 deg. Have cleaned coils and vacumned fan grill. Some items are frozen, but newly added do not freeze.


Check for any frost on the inside, probably the back, of the freezer compartment. If there is any, either the defrost heater, defrost timer or defrost termination thermostat is bad. Need your model # to continue.

Freezer works great, fridge not cold. about 60 degrees in fridge. had repair man look at the fridge, said the mother board, was bad. panel inside freezer iced uped. fridge seem to get better for about 2...


And you are posting because,.......????? You are looking for a second opinion? Don't like the repair estimate?
1. Your freezer is not working great. If it is frosting up, frozen packages will soon beging to soften also.
2. All of the cooling takes place in the freezer compartment. A fan blows air over the coils in the freezer, and directs some of it into the fresh foods side to cool it. When the coils become blocked with frost, the air can no longer flow into the fresh foods compartment. Result is warming of FF area. You may also see freezing in the bottom FF bin, water dispenser not working, FRZ section warm, etc.
3. Manually defrosting the coils will temporarilly solve your problem, but it will reappear in a few days to a week or so. (depending on door openings, ambient temp, etc)
4. The motherboard controls the defrost interval and (although not the most common) certainly can be a cause of defrost failure. If a qualified servicer diagnosed it as such, it most likely is just that.

Amana side by side keeps freezing up.


there is a thermoistat that turns on the fan when the coil get cold enough so that it doies not send hot air into the freezer compartment after the defrost is done. that could be the problem
