SOURCE: appears to go into an extended defrost cycle.

Sounds like your freezer has a bad defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) or bad #4 and/or #5 thermistor . This bimetal , has a high temp rating of 140 degrees , which means , when it gets to 140 behind the panel , it will cut off the defrost heater , to keep ice and food from thawing . The thermistors , tell the main control board the temps , and it decides when to restart the cooling process . I would check the thermistors by the digital controls , in the test mode , or have a technician check them for you .

What you have is either a bad heater or heater bi-metal thermostat most likely. I say that since the ice box is working correctly until that frost builds up. Have you checked them. Your heater should test good for continuity(not open or bad) but the bi-metal is a different story. It is open at 50 degrees f and it only closes or carrys voltage when it is sitting in a freezer at 25f. What it does is allow power to the heater when the timer or automatic control calls for defrost. The defrost cycle is around 20 to 40 minutes and power is constantly being sent to that heater the whole time. When it gets warm enough for frost to melt 50F then that bi-metal opens up and kills the power to that heater. If that heater was to stay on it would not be purty. For the rest of the defrost cycle the coils simply rest and drip.

The defrost system is made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat and a timer. The defrost heater and thermostat are next to the evaporator which is behind a panel in the back of your freezer.

Suggest you go to sear parts direct and plug in the model number from the id tag (normally on the cabinet wall beside your crisper drawer) and it will give you an idea of the location.

Frezzer not cold enough

Cold originates inside the freezer. TA fan pushes the freezer air into the fresh side. So... if that fan ain't working or ice is built up inside the freezer then the freezer will work but the fresh side will suffer. If you have a defrost problem you could find out real easy. Just unplug it and wait a while (depending on how bad it is iced over you might need to go a few days). Plug her back in and if it works ok for a few weeks but does the same thang again then you have a defrost problem. The defrost system has 3 components defrost timer/control defrost heater and defrost termination thermostat. Why do we need a defrost termination thermostat you say? The defrost length is 21 minutes. if that heating element were to stay on 21 minutes your goose would be cooked instead of defrosted. The termination thermostat is designed to shut down the heater when the temp inside the evaporation compartment reaches 50f. So what goes wrong? Timer hangs up electronic control takes a dump, heater goes bad, Termination thermostat goes bad. Number one component that goes out? Termination thermostat. Look for swelling.

My fridge as well as my freezer is freezing over can u tell me how to solve this problem ?

The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can't flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won't turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it's bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it's in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

Where is the defrost control unit and how do I get to it

The main board has the defrost built into it. this is behind the cover on back of refrigerator. These refrigerators if not defrosting..Is to first check the defrost heater..its hard to explain how to do it at the board itself..My advise would be to remove rear cover in freezer. If its froze over or just at the bottom. this prevents the air from circulating from freezer to refrigerator..Defrost this coil and this will give you temp service. Bruce Denton

Our Belling Fridge Freezer appears good with the light on but only the freezer section appears cold. the temp display show H for the Fridge and -18 for the freezer. What is the best way to check if this...

check for frost on the rear wall of the freezer,if so remove this panel,the evaporator coil is here,if its covered with ice use a hand held hair dryer to defrost it and then check the defrost heater under the coil for continuity,they go open(bad) if its o.k. then suspect the defrost control be it timer or adaptive board

Refrigerator and freezer quit working.

That sounds like it could be the problem. The common causes are a bad defrost heater, defrost timer or a defrost thermostat.

Belling B160 Fridge is warm Freezer is cold

In fridge freezer where the fridge is under the freezer, the cold air falls down a channel from the freezer. I had a similar problem and it was a failed defrost thermostat. The evaporator in the back of the freezer was a solid lump of ice and wasn't allowing any cold air to drop into the fridge. The defrost thermostat was changed and then 30 minutes with a heat gun melted the ice. It was worked fine ever since. On a side by side fridge, there is a bypass from the freezer to the fridge. Either way, you need an engineer. You are not the only one to see this problem with that model. I see two in Google.
