Hi,
There should be a defrost heater that that takes care of this if it is supposed to be "frost free"- but obviously this isn't working properly. It could be the heater, thermistor (thermostat) or the control.
Just check that the door seals are still ok and not split, as this can cause excessive build up of ice.

Why do freezer coils ice up on my Stainless Steel Whirlpool refrigerator (model GB2SHDXTS)?


On your model your cntrl board has a relay that can stick causing the compressor to always run even when the unit is turned off or in defrost. turn the fridge off, move the temp of the freezer to it's warmest setting and it should display a line in the freezer and fridge temp display. listen to hear if the compressor is running in back of the unit. if it is you need part number: 12868513

The coils in the freezer department keep icing up completely. I manually defrost and then it works for a time (a couple of months) until the coils freeze again.

Whirlpool Mod ET18LKXHWo o Fridge not freezing,


Your defrost timer located inside the control panel is bad OR the defrost thermostat located on a freezer coil is bad.
Get down low and look up at the bottom of the control panel.
You will see a small round hole. Onside the hole is the defrost timer advance knob.
Use a flat blade screwdriver and SLOWLY turh the slotted knod clockwise until the refrigerator clicks off.
Wait a few minutes then open the freezer door and listen for a sizzling sound from the freezer compartment.
If you do hear a sizzling sound that would be the defrost heater melting ice.
If you do not hear a sizzling sound,unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear freezer panel to expose the cooling coil.
Clipped to the coil will be the defrost thermostat. It will need replacing.
If you do hear the sizzling sound the defrost timer will need replacing.

The self defrosing fridge freezer is freezing and leaking inside of fridge, 3 weeks ago I melted ice in freezer and drain with hair dryer, worked for 3 weeks, now freezes agin?


You have a problem with the defrost system. There 3 components... heater, thermostat, and timer or adaptive defrost control depending how old your refrig is. Check heater and thermostat( located on the evapotator coils) with an ohm meter. The heater will have some resistance and the thermostat will be closed(must be cold). If these check good replace timer or adaptive control.

Amana bottom freezer problem


It sounds like the condenser coil might be freezing up. This happened to me on my bottom freezer. The cooling part of your fridge is only in the back of the freezer compartment. The cold air from the freezer blows up through a vent in the back to the fridge and comes out at the top. If the coils do not defrost (which is what happened with mine) the air flow is blocked by the ice and can't get to the fridge compartment. Your freezer will still be cold but your fridge won't. If you pull the plug on it and time things right you can defrost the coils but this will only postpone the problem. Both will work for awhile again until the coils ice up again. You can also pull out the freezer drawere and try to defrost the coil with a blow dryer. You have to disconnect the icemaker and pull out the back panel behind the freezer to get to it though.

Your timer for the automatic defrost is defective. Replace it. If you thawed out the back of the freezer, this could be good for 3-7 days and it will freeze up again. I had the same trouble.

Freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough


sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.
