Same here. Seems that the heater wires heat up at top of drain tray(bottom of condensor inside at back) but dont heat up at bottom of draining tray so causing ice and not allowing water to drain out to compressor bowl. May be a design fault with the heater wires.

Freezer doesn't cool to 0 even though it's set at -5


There is a fan that blows air past the coils in the freezer. Either the fan is not working or the coils are blocked with ice. Sometime ice stops the fan from turning. listen for the fan spinning by turning the thermostat down. Defrost the coils and fan and see if the frig returns to normal. Sometimes the drain tube is clogged causing ice buildup.

GE Cafe refrigerator stopped working, both freezer and upper compartment not keeping cool.


Is your compressor kicking on? Does the compressor fan work? Is your condenser grill clear of debrie and dirt? Can air get in the back of the refrigerator (no stored items blocking air flow)? Are the condenser coils iced up?

If the compressor seems to be working. Do you have an ice buildup on the freezer side? You might have to remove the inner back panel to check it!

FP E381T, lights won't stop flashing, fridge not cooling properly


There is another fan to draw air into fridge compartment- access via fridge: remove back panel (long plastic cover- just clips off). Remove control housing (again, just clips off- careful of wiring though). Fan is located up in this channel between fridge and freezer compartments. However, from what you are describing, I think you have a blockage in the freezer drain, causing a build up of ice in the freezer which blocks the air flow to fridge.  To check, remove rear panel of freezer (clips off- you need to press down two clips at top of panel, they can be tricky to get off!!). Disconnect fan motor wiring by unclipping plug connection, and remove sensor wire(white wire) so panel can be removed completely. Now have a look in the trough underneath the evaporator, and check for ice buil up- there should be no ice in this trough. If it is iced up, you need to defrost ice and then pour some water in the trough and see if it runs away. In the middle of the trough there is a small hole where the water should run down and away to collector tray at rear of fridge- if this hole is blocked, water won't run away, so builds up and freezes and blocks air flow to fridge. If hole is blocked, poke a wire down to unblock.
If in doubt, call in the experts- F+P fridges can be a bit fiddly getting apart, as everything clips together ( I worked for F+P for 10 years, and I still sometimes have problems getting panels off easily!!)
Good Luck!!

I removed the freezer drawers removed back panel inside the freezer,and discovered that ice had built up around the vent which cools the fridge compartment once I melted this using a hair dryer put it back together and the fridge compartment works fine.

Cooling sometimes, freezer leaking water when it stops freezing


It is probably the defrost thermostat located on upper condenser coil to the left of the fan in the freezer compartment. If not, it could be the defrost timer located near the thermostat in the refrigerator under the plastic dome where the light is. If the defost thermostat or defrost timer is not cycling the defroster heater element on and off correctly... an ice dam forms clogging the drain tube which freezes and blocks water (from the the defroster) to draining down and into the evaporator pan located on top of the compressor in the rear of the unit near the floor.

I have an older commercial upright Hobart freezer. The freezer seems to operate fine, cycling but always returning the compartment to zero degrees, until all of a sudden the temperature went up, well...


In most cases, an evap that freezes up is either an air flow problem or no defrost cycle. Older Hobarts have mechanical defrost time clocks. It could be locked up i.e., not running so no defrost cycle.
It could be coming out of defrost too early because the sensor that monitors the evap temp is not working properly.
The door could not be closing. If left cracked open, it will freeze up every time as unit never hits temp., keeps unit running. Warm air is seeping in and the moisture freezes on evap.
Lastly, the defrost heater(s) may not be working. Burned out, shorted, broken wire, etc.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Freezer compartment not cooling


Di a total defrost and remove the back wall cover from the freezer. Look for ice buildup in the cooling fins. If the air channel is blocked, you won't get proper freezing.

Refrigerator stopped working, freezer works fine


Sounds like the evap fan is not running. The fan takes cold air from the freezer to cool the refer compartment. If the freezer is cold the compressor is running. Generally the freezer will stay cold since the cooling coils are there but it must have the fan working to get the air up to the refer area. Pull everything out the freezer and take the back panel off to view the coils and fan, etc. It's a simple easy job to change the fan. If you find the coils are a total block of ice then it's another problem... the defrost cycle isn't working. Sooo... see if the fan is running in the freezer compartment first. See http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/AA43-57.gif for fan location, item 18 is the fan motor. Let us know what you find out.
