Large Ice Build up on top inside back of fridge unit.


Could be the auto-defrost has stopped working. Most modern frost-free fridges have a heating element behind the liner where the cooling element is and the ice forms. Between the thermostat controlled periods of cooling the heating element should switch on for a short time to melt any ice that has formed and the resulting water forms into droplets that roll down the fridge liner until it is channelled into a drain leading to a tray mounted on the electric motor. The warmth from the motor evaporates the water and completes the maintenance-free frost-free system.

Possibilities are faulty wiring/connections, defrost timer, defrost element.

The defrost timer could be integral with the thermostat.

Some older fridges had a manual switch to start the defrost process.

Why do I have ice buildup blocking fan behind panel in the freezer.


the defrost heater has failed. You will have to switch off fridge for 3-4 hours. Allow ice build up to melt, use a hair drier to speed up process. When ice has melted remove rear panel, the defrost heater would be mounted below the finned evaporator. Check continuity and replace if found open circuit. If heater is ok check the defrost timer and replace if required.

On my Maytag side by side, stainless steel fridge, Model #: MSD2651KES. The freezer works perfectly, but the fridge will not get cold, but if you open the freezer it will start sending cold air to the...


Its defrost problem.--------- When you open the freezer door, then ice starts getting defrosted, because outside temperature is warm and due to that inside ice gets bit melted.--------- -------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is blocked by ice, because your refrigerator is not defrosting.But when you open the freezer door, the inside ice gets bit warm and it starts melting and this lets the fridge section get cool.------------------- In this case you will have to manually defrost the ice and inspect, if the problem solves.For manual defrost procedure, click the link below:-------- Click this below for more detail:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/refrigerator-is-not-cooling-properly.html ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Ice forming on freezer


The drain is plugged. This fridge will defrost every 8 hrs or so. When it does , it will melt the frost that has built up on the evaporator. This melted frost will run down a drain under the evaporator to a drain in the bottom directly under the evaporator. When the drain gets plugged the water cannot drain out of the freezer compartment. After several defrost cycles the melted frost will overflow onto the freezer floor. When the fridge starts back up it will freez this water is the bottom of the fridge. sometimes this water that is now ice will melt on the next defrost cycle and actually run out into the floor. You will have to unplug the fridge or turn it off, then remove the cover to the evaporator. Get a hair dryer and melt the ice aruond the evaporator and drain. Once the ice is removed, check the drain and try to clear it. Once clear, replace everything but the shelves. Plug the fridge back in or turn it back on. Observe and listen for the evaporator fan. It should be running now. When working on the ice on the evaporator always be carefull. The defrost heater can be damaged if up push or pull on it too much.

Overflowing drip pan under the fridge


for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

  • yes, refrigerators have heaters in them to defrost the buildup of frost around the coils
  • they defrost approx. every 12-16 hours
  • if the defrost cycle gets stuck then it will continue to heat
  • i have seen it melt the plastic inside the refrigerator

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad thermo switch in freezer
  • i would replace both as they are not expensive
