Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

My side by side Fridge has been running at 13 degrees for a few days.,the freezer is normal. We noticed some "ice build up , took the cover off and all the elements etc... were iced over, we have...


This is what is happening. All "frost free" refrigerators are not truly frost free. The cooling comparment elements frost up with moisture from the air. Every 6 or 8 hours or so the fridge shuts down. then . small electric heaters fitted into these cooling elements melt the frost away. The water goes down a tube into what is called a drip pan mounted underneath the fridge. If the drain tube clogs with a piece of paper, or food or algae. The water from the frost melting stays in the pan because the drain is clogged. So each time the fridge defrosts, it builds up ICE not frost and eventually it completely clogs with a block of ice.
The other thing that can happen, is that the timer that controls this cycle fails and the heating elements never turn on. The the fridge then clogs with frost. The fridge will clog with frost if any of the following parts fail. The defrost thermostat which opens up the heater circuit when the coils reach
around 40-50 degrees, the defrost heaters mounted in the cooling coils, or the defrost timer fails.
If your fridge works normally after this, then the drain hole was clogged and you unclogged it. If it gets colder and colder again. Then the timer, defrost thermostat, or the defrost heaters have failed.
Hope this helps. You are welcome to write back to me and tell me what is happening with your fridge. I hope this helps, Best Regards, Mark

You may have an issue with a defrost component (e.g.: defrost thermostat, defrost heater(s) or defrost timer). Contact an appliance service company.

I hear a popping/clicking type noise from the freezer and I don't think the fan is coming on. It doesn't have an ice maker. The contents are still frozen each day, but I notice a thin layer of frost on...


if temps are still good, with settings at normal, that popping noise you hear is likely the resulting temperature change when the defrost heater comes on. when its in defrost, you may hear the clicking of the defrost timer, which you wouldnt normally hear when the unit runs.
You say there is a thin layer of frost on certain items, where are these items located in your freezer? are they near the top, the bottom, the back, the front, combination thereof? Are you having any problems with the door not closing well? check your door gaskets, are there any tears, rips or gaps. if you place a dollar bill between gasket and frame, does the bill move, ON ITS OWN. Of course you will be able to move the bill, but if you close the door on the bill and it falls out or shifts position by itself, you have a seal problem. Do you have too much food inside the unit? If you only noticed the frost recently, perhaps you cleaned it out and something is obstructing door from closing completely, on its own. Or if you went shopping, perhaps you bought just a little too much food. check the bottom drawer if yours has one, is it pushed all the way in?

It may have auto-defrost or frost-free feature that is not operating. Also there is a drain tube that goes from the compartments to the bottom of the fridge where the evaporator pan is. The tube may be plugged.

Remove the back wall of freezer. If the coils are frost solid youll need to advance the defrost timer(top inside refrige part) w/ a small flat screw driver, the defrost heater should glow red within a good minute. also youcan turn blade to be sure it is bracked and unobstructed.
