Freezer keeps frosting up

Hi if this is happening on and off, where the frost goes away and comes back, your freezer door or one of the fridge doors is not getting shut all the way, this is very common on the french door models, if this model has a door alarm marke sure its on, sometimes they are cracked so slightly that the door alarm doesnt pick it up, so you just have to make sure that all doors are shut tightly should take care of your problem.

Uneven cooling in fridge and annooying alarm every 10 hours!


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Refrigerator side is freezing contents

First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

If your settings are right then the cold control switch is the problem
