Sounds like you have restricted air flow through the evaporator, which turns it into a mini-freezer. If the filter is clean and in good shape, I would check the evaporator fins on the air inlet side for dust clogged fins. You can brush them with a fin comb to clean them.

Jenn-Air JCD2389GES problems


The condensor fan cools the condensor coils. If it is running this will cause a no cool situation. Also, if the condensor coils are plugged with dirt that insulates the coils and causes a no cool situation. These things will make it so the freezer isn't cold enough to freeze water so the icemaker will not produce ice. As far as the door edges getting hot. A condensor line runs thru the cabinet between the doors and this is called the mullion. If it is too hot this is a good indication of a bad condensor motor or dirty coils. Clean the coils and check the status of the fan motor and let me know what you find and we will see if we need to go further.

Icing up of unit


When you clean the Ac unit, Make sure to take the Unit completly out and clean both the condensor coil as well as the Evaporator coil.
If you are able to run the unit with it out of the window. See if there are any service ports connected to the unit (Guage hook ups), or any OIL spots where is looks dark, (Checking to see) if its leaking.

Wasnt sure how you cleaned the unit, So just make sure both coils are cleaned well with water, and make sure to avoid getting to much water into the Electronics.
Good Luck!

My maytag skybox does not cool very well even when turned all the way to high.


1) your box may be low on freon,
2) fault thermostat may cause unit run non stop,
causing evaporator to ice up and blocking air
circulation,
3) Dirt condensor thus reducing operation efficiency.

Check the simplest problem first - make sure condensor
coil is clean. if not, use a vacuum cleaner to clean condensor.

For # 2 is more likely if the evaporator has a fan.
If it has, check to see if it runs; it is behind the back panel inside box.
While at that, see if evaporator coil iced up. If it is defrost using hot water and turn it on setting thermostat to normal temp. setting.
If it work fine and later develops same problem, replace thermostat.

If the above 2 solutions don't solve the problem, call a technician to check freon.

My Model ED5HHAXVQO2 REFRIGERATOR IS NOT COOLING. THE FREEZER IS NOT FREEZING BUT IT SEEMS TO BE BUILDING UP FROST.


Sounds like your auto defrost is not running long enough to melt the ice that develops on the coils. You can easily fix this problem by using a hair dryer and removing the back panel in the freezing unit to reveal the coils. Once this panel is out use the hair dryer to melt the ice. Once the ice is cleared this should restore air flow across the coils. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Samsung 215LASH ice maker


Hi

Some reasons that also will affect the ice maker.
Defrost Problem
Modern refrigerators are designed to self defrost and it is essential to the airflow to have an evaporator coil that is clear for air movement. If the rear interior panel of the freezer has frost appearing, it is most likely a defrost problem and must be corrected before temperatures can be restored to normal.
Dirty condensor Coil
Check the condensor coils for lint and restrictions. It is located underneath the refrigerator and accessible from the rear. A dirty condensor coil will result in poor cooling, especially in the freezer.
Faulty Condensor Fan Motor
The condensor fan motor is found under the refrigerator near the compressor. This motor is essential to proper cooling. If the fan motor is not running, there will not be proper heat removal from the condensor and the result will be higher than normal temperatures in the freezer and usually in the fresh food section. Ensure the fan motor is running when the compressor is on.
Low Refrigerant Charge
If the unit has a low refrigerant change, the freezer will not reach proper temperatures.

Also please check the fill line if thats also frozen.

Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Magic Chef RB19KA-4A not cooling. Compressor is running as I can observe frost on the copper tubing. Condensor coils were cleaned off of dust but overnight the freezer temp only got down to 45 deg F. Any...


It was determined to be a malfunctioning defrost timer. The freezer box bottom was removed (not an easy thing to do) and the coils found to be a solid block of ice. The timer would not start the defrost heater, hence the freeze up. The timer was replaced and the chill box is back in action.

GE model TFX22R ice maker problem


First clean out the condensor coils. If you have pets it should be done at least 3 times a year. The other possible problem is if the gasket in either the fridge or freezer is worn out or has a gap it will not cool properly. Check that the fan underneath the unit by the condensor coils is running when the compressor is . Some smaller refrigerators have only condensor coils on the back and no fan. These units should have room for air flow on top and sides not built in flush with cabinets. Buy a thermometer for both the fridge and freezer compartments. You run the risk of food poisoning if the fridge temp can not be kept below 40 degrees. Freezer temp should be able to keep at least 0 - 5 degrees. (Ice cream is a very good indication of proper temp. It is the first thing that melts. Ice maker is a close 2nd.)

If these things don't work call for repair. Don't risk losing all your food!
