Whats happening is the defrost heater has failed. It is causing ice to build in the freezer and that is stopping ice production and fresh food chilling. Solution: Remove panel to evaporator and replace heater. Use hair dryer to melt ice. I have your repair manual: HERE

An air conditioning heating and ventilation expert named Dr Z normally makes HVAC videos but his neighbor's ice box did the same as yours and he had a chance to check it out and made this short film.He calls it his HVAC Refrigerator repair I thought it was pretty cool, cause it gives a good idea what is involved in this repair.

Roper brand, not that old--no ice maker--freezer ok, but frosts up--BUT a loud knock comes from the back, not constant and not all the time--if I turn the thermo, to get the bottom colder, it frosts up...


Is the frost on the evaporator cover in the freezer? If so, then you have a defrost problem ( bad defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer/ Adaptive defrost control).Does the knock in back happen when the frig shuts off? If so its probably your compressor. Check you warranty.

Bottom frig is not cold enough. just connected after 1 yr


Ok do this. Boil some water in a pot then use that to defrost the freezer. This is caused by ice build up in the vent that is keeping the cold air from coming into the refrigerator. Make sure it is defrost completel though cause the ice that is built up is mostly inside and can't be seen. That will solve ur problem I guarantee. Then set the temperature to normal. Like half way. This keeps the frost from building up. Believe it or not as refrigerators get a bit older they actually get even colder and therefore frost build up is more likely. Since no refrigeration can be made completely leak proof, small amount of the freon has leaked out older fridge, and this actually cause it to get colder. You don't need a service technician just defrost then set to a lower setting thats it.

I have a Jenn-Air side by side frig. The freezer side cools too cold, the frig side not enough. 2 weeks ago I took all the food out of freezer and noticed ice build up on back. I unplugged unit, let it...


If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

My refrigerator is not cold enough.


I had this repaired by replacing the motor-fan in the refrigertor behind the air deflector which sends the air from the freezer to frig. hope this helps. The motor was not working.

Freezer is cold but fridge is warm


check door seals for freezer and fridge. If ok, check frost level in the freezer. Ice present on the back of the freezer panel (evap cover) remove evap cover and check for defrost problem by ohming out heater and defrost thermostat. If both check ok, then test the defrost timer. If this unit new and covered under wty, call a&e factory svc at 1-800-905-9505 for a free repair. consult your owners manual for wty details.

Freezer not cold enough, frig ok Frigidaire FRS6LR5EM7


Your defrost element is probably faulty, this is in the freezer compartment at the back and behind a removeable panel. You should change both the element and the defrost limiting thermodisc at the same time.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

Frig not cold but freezer is ice maker not making much ice either


Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
