The defrost cycle is not kicking in. It should defrost deveral yimes a day and usually on yhe off cycle. It's controlled by a timer clock mounter under the unit. It can be turnedwith a screw driver to ck it. There will be a click each time the contacts open and close. good luck

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

Hi, my GE refrigerator has ice developing on the rear wall of the freezer, and things in my crisper drawer are freezing solid,please help!!!!


Unplug refrig. Empty all food from freezer side and remove shelves from freezer. Remove back metal cover from inside freezer. Melt frost with a hair blower. Examine defrost heater at very bottom of the coils you defrosted. If heater coil inside glass tube is broken, replace defrost heater. (note: replacement may look different, but insturctions included with replacement address that) If heater is not broken, replace the small white pencil shapped sensor at the top of the cooling coils.

Refrigerator won't cool less than 52 degrees


I can tell you if it can be fixed by you or if you need service. Just answer a few questions as we go through this. Pull away from wall and remove the lower panel. Feel top of compressor and see if too hot to keep your hand there or cool. Let me know if freezer fan and fan below are running. Answer those and that will help me answer your questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Model GR2SHK/GRASHM - Fridge has water condensation on top of back wall. It is pooling on shelves and freezing. The fridge and freezer are set at the recommended settings. Thank you for your help.


You will need to remove all food and the ice maker ( if equipped ) . Slide out the freezer bottom , and remove the 2 ( or 3 ) screws holding the back freezer panel on , and remove the panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , under the coils , and defrost until you see a hole ( defrost drain hole ) . Using hot water to help , defrost this hole until water starts to flow out . Get a short piece of hose , insert one end into the hole , and blow thru it , to blow out any unseen debris in the drain line . Then , get a piece of solid ( preferably aluminum , but copper will work ) wire , such as a large diameter ground wire , and insert one end as far as it will go , without any resistance , into the hole , and then wrap about 2 turns , around the black rod ( defrost heater ) just above the hole , When the refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer to the wire , keeping the drain hole from freezing up again .

Items in the back of the refrigerator freeze.


is this something that has just started happening? Most kenmore top freezers have a vent that allows cold air from the freezer into the refrig through a vent located on the back wall in the center of the refrig section. if packages are pushed up under this vent they can freeze. 

If you have widespread freezing in the refrig setion then a temperature control could be the fault. thanks for using fixya. Peyton..

Refrig no cool but freezer is


You have a defrost problem. Details on this can be seen at:

http://www.houstongofarappliancerepair.com/Refrigerator.html


What happens is all the cold air in the refrigerator comes from behind the freezer wall at the bottom area. It is frozen solid behind that wall blocking air flow to the refrigerator side.

Cause of problem is either a thermostat(most common), timer, or heater elements. Goodluck,
Brian
