Is this a problem that has slowly happened?

Make sure the defrost timer is not hanging, use a flat screwdriver and gently turn it in the direction of the arrow till it clicks, don't worry, if it doesn't click, just turn it a few degrees.

Worst senario is it has lost its freon charge. Another thing to look at is how clean the coils and compressor area are, need to get rid of all the dust and cobwebs.

It sounds like your defrost assembly has ceased to function and you have ice build up on the thermostat telling the freezer it is cold enough. Pull power. Take the food out of the freezer, remove shelves and bins, remove inside back cover. IF there is a lot of ice build up behind it then you can either leave the door open so that it will defrost or use a hair dryer to speed the process up.
Once the ice is cleared out, you can plug it up and see if things start working again. At least the freezing and getting cold part. If this worked then you will need to order the defrost assembly using the information from the information plate inside your refrigerator, then install it.

Both fridge and freezer are turned up to maximum cooling but they just aren't cold enough even though the weather is mild. Icecream is very soft - barely frozen and fridge temp is about 8 degrees...


Sounds like a failure to defrost.
Look on the freezer rear wall inside the freezer for ice bukdup.
If there is ice the defrost components ,must be replaced.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

Freezer not freezing ice cream and milk


Icecream is a tough call. Some brands have to many artaficial ingredients and that doesnt get solid. What temps are you getting in the freezer? Is everything else frozen solid?

Food not totally frozen, icecream melted


if it a frost free freezer then chances are it is a defrost hearter, fan motor or defrost timer
if it is not frost free then it will either be the compressor or a gas leak ( which should be under warranty)

Yes that is the correct part number.

Will it freeze water? The vent coming into the freezer may be blocked. Check that and see. Is the refrigerator keeping those items cool? You may also have a vent blocked by the fan cover (dusty). If all this is right, you may have a freon leak or worse a compressor or evaporator going bad.

Refridgerator/Freezer will not get cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer

If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Tank won't freeze


The keys are to make sure the freezer is cold enough, and to make sure the bowl is level when it is sitting in the freezer. 24 hours is usually required, despite what manual says.

If all else fails, the freezer bowls are replaceable - you can order them from Cuisinart - if you are in-warranty, they may even be able to give it to you for free.
