Question about Kenmore 64802 Top Freezer Refrigerator
I HAVE ICE BUILD UP IN FREEZER BEHIND THE BACK PANEL
Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck & thanks for using fixya! Mike

Generally, icing is the result of too much water vapor inside the unit, blockage of the circulation channels and too much packing in of the box. The water vapor is generally caused by: uncapped items in the fridge, opening the door too often, humid conditions, bad door seals. There is of course, there is a possibility that the defrost cycle on the unit is not working. About once a day, depending on the brand, you should notice that the fans and compressor don't run and you should hear a bit of creaking, sloshing or other strange noises as the ice melts. If this is not happening, your defrost timer or the coil it heats could be bad.

try to check the defrost thermistor and also make sure that the unit is working with the right FULL LOAD AMPERAGE by looking this we will know if it has exact refrigerant in the system.
