Yep, the ice buildup is restricting air flow to the fresh food compartment. This means you have a problem in your defrost circuit. First, go to your local appliance parts store and purchase a defrost thermostat. Part #WR50X55. It's a G.E. built part and will replace your bad one. UNPLUG YOU FRIDGE! You'll have to empty out your freezer compartment and remove the rear panel. Once this is done, you'll see the defrost thermostat physically mounted to the *evaporator. *(the aluminum coil assy. that's all iced up.) It looks like the one you just bought. Remove it from the evaporator and cut the wires right at the thermostat, then discard it. Strip the newly cut wires exposing 1/2" of wire. Do the same with your new one. Wire color does not matter, just connect one wire of your new part to one of the wires in the freezer, then do the same with the other one. Now mount it (use the clip provided) back to the evaporator where the old one was located. Repair complete. Except that you'll need to completely defrost (melt) all that ice out of there before it'll cool properly again. Grab a hair dryer for this job. Do this before you replace the rear panel, it'll go quicker that way.

SOURCE: water in my fridge

sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

AVANTI REFRIDGERATOR HAS WATER BUILD UP ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FRIDGE


more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. Over time it gradually builds and starts voer a larger area. Being you have a top mount refrigerator(freezer on top) there are air ways that connect the freezer to the fridege, which is how its cooled. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt
If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.

The freezer is about 65% cold - the ice cream is melted but the ice cube trays have not. The fridge is about 50% cold, no food has spoiled yet. What is causing the problem?


Clean the condenser fins. Lint build up in the condenser fins is inhibiting heat transfer. Just clean the condenser very well and that might solve your cooling problem.

Why does the freezer part of the refrigerator work and the fridge part does not. whirlpool


The cold air is not being transferred from the freezer unit to the refrigerator. A fan normally does this. Sounds like the fan motor has expired.
