Freezer is not freezing food

Hi, having problems keeping the freezer items frozen, i sucked all the dust off the condenser underneath, cleaned the freezer and defrosted the freezer manually. Cold air is blowing, into the freezer and the thermostat is maxed out on the coldest setting #7. Ice cubes are being made at a very slow rate. Any suggestions? Thank you so much.

Our freezer is working just fine, but our refrigerator is not staying cool. I first turned it up all the way, but that didn't help.


Hi,


Thank you for contacting fixya.com.


Check the condenser under the refrigerator is clogged with lint. Make sure that the condenser fan underneath the fridge is running properly. You can get to it through the back. Check the coils on the rear of the refrigerator and make sure they are clean and dust free. Also check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan under the unit to see if it is running. If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost thermostat, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. Also check the freezer to ensure it isn't over loaded with food stuff, reason being air must flow freely threw out the entire refrigerator in order for the thermostat to work correctly.

Defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with both the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

Hi, I have model # MTB1950GRW top mount freezer and it's not keeping items frozen. I've turned up the temp control, made sure the vents aren't blocked. Also the frig itself isn't as cold as it should be. ...


Either your coils underneath are dirty ,if they are underneath you will have a fan blowing if is not you need a new condensor fan. You should also hear a fan blowing in the freezer if not its your evaporator fan. If your coils are frozen up in the freezer behind the access panel then your defrost thermostat and defrost heater is bad. Whenever you fix it make sure you put the settings back to factrory settings.

I have a JCD 2289 AE side by side. The freezer has water at the bottom rear that has frozen. How do I turn off the freezer and not the refigerator to defrost it and what could the cause be for the water


Just unplug the frig and open the freezer and let it defrost. Put the frozen items in the frig to keep them cold. Keep the frig closed if possible. You can assist the defrosting by blowing a window fan into the freezer. The room temp will defrost it quickly, or set a blow dryer on LOW and direct toward ice. Careful don't take the chance and turn that dryer on heat. And DO NOT CHIP ICE with a sharp object (patience is free). You may need to physically remove the water as the ice melts. - The source of the ice is probably condensation, or if it happens very quickly, there may be a ice maker leak. Once defrosted replace the frozen items and watch for cause of ice.

Your condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system may be plugged with dust. The condenser is more than likely located in back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel. Remove the panel and clean it out. Reinstall the panel after you have cleaned the condenser.

Check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If there is frost buildup on the back wall it indicates that there is a problem in the defrost circuit.

Note: The proper term is "More mature individual" , not old.

I think it may be a defrost system problem. If you have frost on the back wall the problem is related to the defrost timer or defrost heaters or thermostat.

Also check the condenser for dust. If plugged with dust the system can not get rid of the heat. If dust is present clean it out completely.
Remove the toe plate under the refrigerator door to check the condenser.
