Question about Refrigerators
Coils keep freezing up even after I replaced the defrost adaptive control board.The refrigerator side will not stay cold. Help!!
Classic symptoms -
Chances are if they are getting cool, then later not, and there is a large accumulation of frost -
1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.
Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above. Please provide specific unit Model number to proceed further.

one problem i had was the condensor fan had stopped working because it was clogged up with ice buildup, check and make sure the fan is not iced up, once a year i have to unclog ice from the condensor fan which located behing the white panel, which you unscrew and you can get a visual on this fan. my freezer would stop working but the fridge part was fine. something as small as that was causing this problem for me.
