ON ALMOST ALL REFRIGERATORS, THE FRESH FOOD SECTION GETS ITS COOLING FROM THE FREEZER BY AIR CIRCULATION. IF THE AIR ISN'T CIRCULATING, FINDING THE CAUSE WILL REMEDY THE PROBLEM. THE MOST FREQUENT FAILURE IS THE DEFROST CYCLE AND IS EASILY DIAGNOSED BY LOOKING IN THE FREEZER SECTION. IF FROST IS PRESENT ON THE BACK WALL, (OR FLOOR OF OLD MAGIC CHEF TOP MOUNT), THEN A DEFROST FAILURE HAS OCCURED. THERE ARE THREE COMPONENTS IN THE DEFROST CIRCUIT. THE CONTROL, THE HEATER, AND THE BI-METAL. FIND THE DEFROST CONTROL AND SET TO DEFROST. IF THE HEATER COMES ON, THE CONTROL IS BAD. IF THE HEATER DOES NOT COME ON, EITHER THE HEATER OR THE BI-METAL IS BAD.
TO FIND THE BI-METAL, FOLLOW ONE SIDE OF THE HEATER WIRE FROM THE HEATER TO A SMALL ROUND DISC WITH TWO WIRES COMING OUT OF IT. THAT IS THE BI-METAL.DETERMINE WHICH IS BAD WITH VOLTAGE OR RESISTANCE MEASUREMENTS.

G.E. Bottom freezer evap drain keeps freezing up and ice build up stops fan so no cooling in fridge compartment. How can this be solved?


When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool.Its defrost problem. Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.

Your refrigerator probably has an issue with its "damper control assembly", which regulates cold air coming from the freezer compartment. Contact an appliance service company.

Check the freezer section for frost build up, there is probably a problem with the defrost cycle. 1 of 3 things defrost bi metal would be the likely problem.The back panel in the freezer should be removed to see if there is too much frost.

Check for snow on the back wall of the freezer compartment, Air to cool the refrigerator is supplied from the freezer section. If the coil is frozen over the air circulation becomes retarded and the refrigerator suffers. Snow on the back wall indicates a defrost problem.

FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Most side by side and other models of refrigerator freezer combinations are of one basic design. The freezer section does the cooling for both compartments. The refrigerator section gets it cold air from the freezer compartment. Therefore check for frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment. If frost is present there you have a defrost problem and it is cutting off the air that cools the refrigerator section.

I think this problem may already be resolved in some manor because of the date of post. Posts should expire after an unreasonable time period.
