Question about Refrigerators
This refrigerator has uneven ice formation on the top portion of the condenser coil only. Have checked door seals, cleaned compressor coils, and triggered manual defrost mode. After clearing the frost from the coils, ice is forming again on the back wall of the freezer at the top of the coil within a few hours. My guess is that this uneven cooling is the result of low freon. Any other suggestions? Unit is about 6 years old.
You will have a blockage in the ferfigeration system. Its not a big deal, a technician needs to regas the fridge. Make sure he installs a new drier before he pumps gas into the fridge. (When the drier is contaminated, it restricts gas flow). This is what you have with your fridge..

Tips for a great answer:
Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt. Determine the temperature setting. The refrigerator should be set to temperatures ranging from 34 degrees to 40 degrees, while the freezer should be below 30 degrees. Adjust the temperature setting which will naturally improve the ice buildup that's been caused by the wrong temperature setting.
Move the refrigerator away from the wall. Oftentimes, this simple action is all that is needed because the unit is not getting enough air circulation behind it. Also, some refrigerators have vents underneath the unit, which are easily clogged with debris. Clean these vents and coils.
Remove food and shelving from the refrigerator and freezer portions of the fridge. If ice build up is happening in the freezer, the drain in the freezer may be clogged. With the unit off, remove coverings to expose drain and pour hot water down the drain hole until it comes out into the drain drip pan under the fridge.
Check the condenser coils. The evaporator coils could be causing the problem of ice build up. If this is the case, professional repair is likely needed to replace the motor, thermostat or other problems within the fridge.
