Freezer is frosting and refrigerator is warm.


As far as your freezer frosting up, sounds like a door seal problem, run your fingers along the seam of the door seal, there should be no splits/holes in the seal.
As far as the refrigerator either there is a secondary fan motor, or there is a obstruction blocking the air movement, if the freezer has a bad seal, its suspect ice is still building up.

Frig has suddenly become warmer than usual. Freezer is at 20 degrees and frig at 60. Tried to vacuum coils but very dificult to reach them underneath the unit. Any other hints?


what the problem most likely is a failed part of the defrost system Do you see a bunch of frost built up on the back wall of the freezer? If you do frost build up, take off the back wall of the freezer and replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. A hair dryer could be used to melt the built up frost from the coil behind the back wall. Another part that will cause frost build up is the defrost control, that isn't the freezer behind the back wall but instead it is part of the main computer board on the back of the refrig. I would replace heater/defrost thermostat first though, since they are the most likely to fail parts.

I hope my answer will help you to fix your refrigerator,

You will have to check the defrost timer to make sure it is turning if it is working properly and you are getting power to the defrost heating element below the freezer coil it should get hot if you have a 115volts or so to the element and it does not get hot then you have a bad element

What you have is either a bad heater or heater bi-metal thermostat most likely. I say that since the ice box is working correctly until that frost builds up. Have you checked them. Your heater should test good for continuity(not open or bad) but the bi-metal is a different story. It is open at 50 degrees f and it only closes or carrys voltage when it is sitting in a freezer at 25f. What it does is allow power to the heater when the timer or automatic control calls for defrost. The defrost cycle is around 20 to 40 minutes and power is constantly being sent to that heater the whole time. When it gets warm enough for frost to melt 50F then that bi-metal opens up and kills the power to that heater. If that heater was to stay on it would not be purty. For the rest of the defrost cycle the coils simply rest and drip.

Fridge not staying cold


Solo, firt make sure you do not have a build up of frost on the freezer inside panel. This would indicate a defrost problem. Your post states that the cooling problem is intermitant which leads me to believe that the automatic damper is at fault. It could have a build up of ice on it which is causing it to bind, or it could just be going bad. Your model does have the manual defrost timer which could be sticking at times, that is why I suggest checking the back freezer panel for frost buildup. Catriver..post back.
