SOURCE: frig won't cool, freezer works fine

Defrost unit completely. You're frosting up. Then, avoid leaving the door open, leaving liquids and food uncovered. Clean condenser coils. If it happens again, you need refrigerant.

SOURCE: Admiral HMG 62163 water leaking internally & freezing in lower basket

good attempt, its actually a clogged drain thats backing up and your drain water is not able to leave refrig so it falls to bottom of freezer floor and eventually out the door. romve the items from the freezer and take the lower back wall off form inside, directly under the evaporator under all that ice there is a drain hole, youll need to clear that hole of iec( pouring boiling water down until you get a free flow of water then you can reassemble uint problem solved

Try turning the defrost timer clockwise until you hear it click. If defrost element and defrost thermostat are working properly, the refrigerator should begin to defrost. The timer is located inside the fresh food compartment behind plastic controls cover and also near the thermistat control.beb686d.jpg .I will be around if you need, just let me know,Sea Breeze

SOURCE: ice maker on Admiral HMG 62165 side by side

check the lever in the ice bin. if it is stuck in the up position it thinks the ice bin is full and will not make ice. Just wiggle it to the down position.

I have a admiral fridge designer series # HMG 62186 that I purchased in 1997. It has always had popping sounds and sparks behind the drawer in the freezer. A repairman told me this was normal, so I...


Hello WIntersno,

I understand that your refrigerator is sparking behind the freezer drawer and you would like to know if this is a fire hazard. In my opinion it would be a fire hazard as plastic and rubber is flammable and the repairman is not true in saying that this is normal. A refrigerator should never spark as this is also an electrical hazard. I would suggest having another repaid man come out and fix the problem or purchase a new box.

Good day,
No real solution except to put it in a warmer location.
Understand, it is a refrigerator with the freezer just going along for the ride.
All manufacturers state the machine must be in an area that is no colder than 55 degrees.
The problem you have, is once the refrigerator section reaches temperature 34 to 39 degrees, it shuts the whole machine off. If the air temp surrounding the machine is near or approaching that temp, it shuts off, and may be off most of the day,
Domestic refrigerators are engineered to operate in area comfortable to people. Normally 70 to 95 degrees. Below that it will begin to unbalance.

Thank for using FixYa

Freezer works, frig doesn't


there is a fan on many newer units that blows cold air from the freezer side to the frig. If that fan is not working, the frig will be cool, but not 34° like you want it.

I have an admiral model HMG 67184 side by side and I can't figure out why my freezer section still works but doesn't get cold enough to make ice cubes and the other side doesn't work at all. I do have...


1. Get the Food out of the Ref and Freezer. Unplug the power cord from the wall.
2. The cooling coil is in the back wall of the freezer side. Working from inside the Freezer.
3. Remove the back plastic cover to expose the cooling coil. It's called the Evaporator coil.
4. Use a hair dryer to melt all ice off the coil.
5. Put it back together. It should work for 3 - 5 days now at least.
6. Put a thermometer in there. After 24 hrs. the freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees F. and the Ref. side 37 to 44 degree F.
7. Check the door gaskets for tight fit, using a dollar bill for a gauge.
Shut the door on the dollar and try to pull it out in several places.

If it ices up again in a week or two, you have a defrost heater problem. There is a electric heat strip around the cooling coil. This heat strip comes on about 10 minutes every 8 or 10 hours. This heater melts the ice off the coil. There is a clock timer device under the ref. that cycles the heat strip. You may have a bad clock, fuse device or burned out defrost heater strip. The cooling coil must be ice free to work properly.
