You said the DOOR!

The back wall is where the cold comes from. The defrost cycle should remove this. You need a service visit as long as the door seals are OK :>)

Icing up in the freezer, loosing cold in the fridge. Sweating down the inside wall between fridge and freezer. Icing up at vegetable drawer.


Pull the fridge our from the wall and vacuum the back wall of it very gently. Also, take the kick plate (just above the floor) off and vacuum that underneath as well. It might not correct the problem but it won't hurt.

GE French Door 22 cu ft (PFSW2MIXSS). Loud buzzing from behind the freezer. Ceased cooling.


The model number you post appears to be incorrect.
The buzzing was from the evaporator fan blade hitting on some ice build up. Getting to it on a bottom freezer refrig is a bit of a pain in the back side. If your model has a pull out freezer drawer, that has to be removed, the icemaker removed, one side of the drawer supports from the freezer wall, all to allow you to remove the back wall of the freezer to get to the fan. You may be able to just thaw out the fan and surrounding area then which will get your refrig cooling again, if the ice was just around the fan area. On the pain in the but repair scale of 1 - 10, this one rates at least a 7.

Ice under freezer drawer


Hi, Check in the back rear of the freezer and se if you have ice built up. MOST cases the defrost drain gets plugged behind the rear freezer wall under the evaporator.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Water on floor probably from cloged line leading to evaperation p


Look under the freezer bottom drawer for ice.
If ice is there your defrost drain line is frozen closed.
It is located on the back wall of the freezer down low.
Turn off the fridge. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice at the drain hole.
The ice under the drawer can be broken with a hammer and removed.

GDS20SBSBSS FREEZER DRAWER WON'T OPEN


ice will most likely form again.you have a defrost problem.most likely it is your defrost heater.their are a few things that control your defrost cycle.defrost timer,thermostat and defrost heater.most of your newer ref. will also have a control board on the back of ref. or under ref in a usually grey box.but check your heaters first.you will need to take the back panel off in freezer.you will see heater at the bottom of coils.if you have a set of meters you can check for continuity to heater.also your drain below heater sounds clogged.i usually steam out drain but you can use hot water.water should go down drainwhen unclogged.that will prevent the drawer from sticking.

Water drains internally at back of freezer drawer


Check the drain.

Take the bottom drawer out of the freezer and look in the very back for a drain hole. It may be covered with ice. A hair dryer will melt the ice so you can unclog the drain.

Kenmore fridge and freezer not cooling


Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.

Bottom drawer wall is covered s ice/ top shelf not freezing


Sounds like a defrost system problem. Could be related to defrost timer, heaters or defrost thermostat. Have it serviced.
