To defrost a fridge, you simply move all of the food to somewhere it can stay cold and unplug the fridge. That's it!

The purpose of defrosting a fridge/freezer is to melt the ice that has accumulated around the condenser to restore it to maximum efficiency. Once it has melted (using a hairdryer can speed it up) you can plug it back in and put food back.

Whirlpool gold french door bottom freezer ices up and causes fridge to run warm. I have taken it apart and defrosted several times. Fan works, drain is not clogged. What could be the cause of this?


The self defrost function is not working. Depending on the age and model you have a heater, bi-metal defrost thermostat.....and either an electronic control or defrost timer. One of these parts has failed. Need a model number to tell you more.

Model et18pkxfno1 serial eg4024334 type c18tfa97\r\nwater drips into refrigerator compartment somewhere from freezer (inside). Occurs daily. Tried to adjust temp in both refrigerator and freezer but...


The problem is that your fridge's drain line (which is located in the freezer) is iced over. So water can't drain out of the freezer when your fridge enters it's defrost cycle. The freezer and drain line needs to be defrosted by hand. Or you can unplug the fridge and open the doors for a 2-3 hours. Eventully, if no action is taken, the ice build up in the freezer will block the cold air flow to the refrigerator compartment .
