    Thanks for the info! I turned the defrost switch until it cut off and waited 20 minutes to see the results, the fans came back on but the frost is still there...Bad Defrost heater???

    Did you defrost the heavy frost?

    You have a defrost problem , probably the heater behind the inside freezer panel , BUT , Sears says " no serviceable parts available for this model " . Strange , it was made by G E , and Sears says that .

SOURCE: frost in freezer compartment

It is possible to get this build up in the return vents.  Check seals for any possiblilty of warm air getting into the fridge.  Warm air getting in will cause this.  For now use a hair dryer or some hot water to clear the vents.  Let me know what you find.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

It sounds like you have a stuck compressor or bad start capacitor.

SOURCE: I've got an electrolux frost

remove the back panel inside the freezer and check for ice build up on the evaporator pipework. if ice build up, this prevents air flow and hence temp rises.
remove ice carefully with a hair dryer and it should work. if problem comes back, you have a problem with the defrost system and get back to me if you want

remove back cover on evaporator inside frezeer if is full of ice all over then you have a defrost problem and you might have a faulty defrost timer or defrost thermostat repl both so you wont go wrong if the coils are clean and not frost is on coils then check compressor to see if its running just by touching you can find out if it si not running then you have a faulty relay or overload repl and compressor should start.if there is only partial frost then you have a leak or restriction depending when you bought it most refrigerators have a maufactures warranty on compressor for about 5 years call for service on the number on the sticker inside refirgerator

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Fridge and freezer are cool but not cold.fan in freezer doesnt come on the 15 times i checked. compressor is working and the evap fan is working .drain is clear


Have press in on door swtich. This might stop power to fan. Also some fans dont come on unless a tempstat is cold enough. With the box running take the freezer back panel down and see if you have frost on coil and the whole coil is covered with frost, If you dont you have a seal system problem. and need a tech. I hope this helps

Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling


Is the fan on the bottom on? Do you hear the compressor kick off and on within a minute? No/ Is the evaporator fan running? Do you have frost on the evaporator? Frost is a sign that the defrost isnt working. If evap fan doesnt run it wont cool the refrigerator. If everything is running and no frost buildup in freezer then you have a sealed system problem and need of a tech.

Whirpool conquest refrigerator-about 8 years old-not cold enough


  • if it does not cool at all then i would suspect the start switch on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
  • if the previous repair included tapping into the freon line then it could be the freon leaked out. 
  • if the thermostat was bad then the refrigerator fans would not be running, 
  • and if the defrost timer was bad (stuck in defrost = not cooling) then the fans would not be running.
  • i don't know of any bad history with this particular model
  • double check the back wall of the freezer to make sure there is no buildup of frost, because this would be a defrost issue.
  • if it is getting a little cold but not cold enough then let me know the temps

when you removed the back panel inside refrig was there any sign of cooling, perhaps only top 1 pass of the coil was frosted, or completly warm no signd of frost at all?

Freezer/Fridge work SOMETIMES


Sounds like you have a bad relay on the compressor or a bad compressor. If the compressor is a Tecumpseh brand then it is most likely the problem.
