Back of freezer icing up

Same make and model. Every 2 weeks I'm on my *** defrosting the thing. One repair man came and said he couldn't find anything wrong...I'll try one more repair guy, and he if he can't fix it, it's outta here.

If you just purchased the freezer 3 weeks ago, I would be calling the store and or the manufacturer, and have them send out a service man to fix it or replace it.

Our freezer is not de-frosting, there is a build up of ice


Sometimes ice will build up because of hummity. dont know where your at but best thing would be to get everything out and turn off . and defrost manually we used to do this on old friges with a hairdryer. it takes a while. when you start it back up make sure the seal seals good and if ice builds up again the your going to get to call repair man. Hvac and all compressors go through defrost mode. You may have so much ice it wont defrost, also a full freezer works more effecient than empty.

there are only 2 reasons this happens but one cause (defrost element not working) 1st we check the defrost timer is working if not replace it if it is working go on to the last fault it can be - depending on the freezer it will have 1 or 2 defrost elements when one blows the ice will slowly build up if they both blow then the ice will build up within days unless you know your way around a multimeter it will be very hard to determin witch unit has blown in 70% of cases its the element but a service tech can tell you in a matter of minutes to save you time and money i would get a quote to get a tech in but now you know what to look for

Problem with Whirlpool side by side refrigerator (Model ED25RFXFW01). Approximately 6 weeks ago, I found the refrigerator had quit cooling and ice in the ice maker was melting. The top half of the freezer...


sounds like a defrost problem ...
maybe the heater or defrost thermostat is bad...

he should bypass the timer and jump the heater to see if its woking...if not then i would remove the heating element for further testing. if the heater checked ok..it would only leave the defrost timer to blame.

good luck

New freezer not cooling - temp @ 25 degrees and food is defrosted


It is probably the control board and since it's new it's still under warranty so a certified Frigidaire repair man will fix it without charge. There should be a telephone number with the paperwork you received when you bought it.

The evaporator keeps freezing up after about a week. I unplug it and lots of water leaks all over. after 2 days plug it in and it cools fine, about -10 to 0 temp.


Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck! P.s please don't forget to rate my solution....Mike

Fridge freezer side by side running constantly but not cooling.


Make it a habit to defrost it every week. You see, when ice forms around the evaporator tubes (which runs around the walls of fridge and freezer), heat exchange reduces (that means heat is no longer absorbed from the things inside the refrigerator) and cooling stops. See whether freezer walls or fridge walls are damaged. Do not use knives or any other sharp tools to remove ice. Do not forcefully remove items that are difficult to take out from the freezer. Defrost and remove them.

My Whirlpool upright freezer keeps building up ice inside the bottom back wall. The fan starts rattling and freezer will not stay cold enough to make ice. If I take everything all out and leave it off...


Either your defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost thermostat has failed. All parts are located behind the lower back panel inside the freezer. Most likely are the defrost heater and defrost thermostat.
