Refrigerator Repair Frosting up in freezer not cooling Admiral RSCA207AAM

Fridge/freezer freezing up- and no fan or air circulation:

first check the defrost terminator thermostat it may have gone out. Thus not allowing the heating element to melt the ice.

AT TIMES The fan usually stops working AND CAN MAKE FUNNY NOISES AS WELL due to ice obstruction when the defrost terminator has gone out and u get ice build up? u can check the terminator with a multi meter for continuity but do not check at room temperature. stick the terminator in cup of ice water for 20 minutes then check it for continuity, should be closed when cold and open at room temperature.

May also need to check the defrost timer, The defrost timer is usually found behind the front grill "toe kick" of the refrigerator. Or in the fridge compartment near middle top section.

u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?

Another way to test it is with a multi meter. Remove timer it from fridge and you will see 4 prongs numbered 2,1,4,3 in that order. Place ur meter prong on prong 1 & 3 (if your fridge has a capacitor wired in series with the windings, then u check for micro fares rather than OHMS) If u cannot confirm this test, still try the next.

Take ur meter prong and connect to prong 1 & 4, it should read resistance or ohms ( closed) now remove prongs and place on prong 1 & 2, this should now read infinity or open (no ohms) now take a small screwdriver place it in the tiny hole or slot under the timer. Turn it clockwise slowly till u hear 1 click. Now ur 1& 2 should read closed ( showing ohms or resistance) now place meter prongs on 1 & 4 and you it should now show open ( or no resistance - no ohms) this is how u know ur timer is good, Remember when testing for ohms ADJUST meter to use a high ohms rating in the thousands as the resistance is very high in OHMS. And adjusting to low ohms rating may give a false reading or not show the proper resistance..

Another item to check with a meter is the heating element itself. Located under the evaporator coils. It should show continuity or resistance OHMS WHEN TESTED AT BOTH ENDS OF THE PRONGS .

Lastly check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM and THERMISTORS At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!

THERMISTORS in the freezer and fridge section for continuity OHMS and for amount of OHMS current being put out. In most models around 1300 ( give or take 150 ohms) ohms is required

Whirlpool double door fridge. Door wont stay closed. Have to push extra hard to keep it closed


Take out the shelves and drawers. check the rear is clear of ice before putting them back in place, and ensure they are not stopping the door closing. Next check the top and bottom of the door. Is it hitting the frame when closing? If so, straighten it up by tapping the hinge side of the door to make it square to the frame.

My fridge is leaking a lot of water onto the base o f the fridge where the salad compartments are. I'm constantly mopping it up and it's no more than 18 months old. Does anyone know what might be causing...


The warming and cooling cycle is off. Refrigerators cycle hot and cold, this allows the frig from not turning into ice. Remember the old days you had to leave the door open to defrost ?
There should be an adjustment at the bottom (in front) just below the front door side underneath the frig. Some have a knob, others have a screwdriver blade. Try that 1st, otherwise your compressor is going bad and not putting out the proper cooling. 18 months sounds awful short for a bad compressor. They can last a lifetime.
First I'd rush to find my warranty papers before time goes by, because no one will fix a compressor. Once a compressor goes bad it spells junk, buy a new fridge.
The other part that can go bad are the warming bulbs hidden in the walls, but usually the fridge stops cooling period when that happens because the electrical circuit is broken. One needs a closed circuit to make anything work. Also check if the compartment has a separate cooling adjustment, many have. The other thing to check is to look for
the cooling adjustment within the refrig itself, which controls the entire refrigerator. Turn it a notch at a time cooler. The main cooling adjustment is usually located on top in the upper portion within the fridge. Make a list of the items I mentioned, then check them off because I didn't give the causes in the exact order.

Maytag fridge right door won't stay closed


it may be necessary to reset the hinge adjustment to move the door further across the opening giving the magnets a better area to hold on to . there is a slight amount of adjustment in the mounting points of the hinges. You may have to replace the door gaskets as they become hard over time and the magnets cannot work properly in the hard plastic

The freezer door opens if the refrigerator door is closed hard


this is quite normal on a lot of fridges ! if it isnt closing again by its self you need to re-level the fridge and have it very slightly backwards . alternatively the fridge is not level side to side !. open the main door a third to halfway open and let it go, it should close under its own weight, if not adjust up on the hinged side leg or down on the opposite side , if the front legs are not not adjustable pull it out and adjust the back legs , a quick fix, is to chock up the front leg and all will be ok ,regards terry ps, clean the seals and the fridge where the seals make contact the seals probably do not need replacing unless the fridge is very very old. a lot of people replace seals when its not needed. regs terry

Both the freezer and fridge doors hinge on the right, and the left hand side has sagged a little so neither neither door is sealing properly. How do I adjust the doors to raise the left side of the...


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it's wore out and doesn't work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

The water could have been frozen in the door and melted when your fridge warmed up.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
