Why did you stop the ice maker? was it not working properly? was it over flowing or leaking? do you have a sheet of ice forming in the ice maker tray? if your ice maker was leaking then your water valve is not shutting off completely and could be leaking down on the food. if this is the case - you need to shut the water line off coming into the refrigerator and replace your water valve.

if it is frost that is forming on your food instead of ice then you should check to see if the refrigerator is defrosting properly. if the refrigerator is not defrosting properly you would also first notice that the refrigerator is not cold enough and then later that the food in the freezer eventually thawing.

Hi my samsung refrigerator rb1855sw it is not keeping it cool inside and keeps making ice... i need a solution... thank you

Ok First thing would be to check that your freezer is cold. After you assure that the freezer is cold then you would have to ascertain if the fan is blowing from the freezer into the fridgerator you can do this by putting your hand over one of the vents inside the fridgerator and you should feel air flowing onto your hand if you dont then the fan willneed to be replaced. If you do have air blowing into the fridgerator then you would have a defrost problem in which you would need a multimeter to test the t-stat which is a small two wired disc like object which is usually found on one of the condensor lines if the tstat tests ok then you would test the heater please note that both of these tests are to be done with the power off and that you would be measuring continuity from one side to the other side. start with the fan and message me back if you have any further questions and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation and have a great day (also note that if you are having a defrst problem or your fan is not working when you take off the rear panel inside of the freezer you will see an ice build up of some sort this buildup needs to be defrosted and there is also a drain line that you have to assure is free of ice as well )

The temperature of the fridge has risen to 11/12 degrees & wont come down? Freezer works fine! Any answers please

Don't know the make and model of your fridge, but most fridges have only one evap coil located in the freezer. The fridgerator compartment is cooled by a fan to blow air from the coil back into the fridgerator section. Check that the fan is working and the vents in the fridgerator are not blocked. Often the problem might be that the defrost circuit is not functioning causing ice to build up on the evap coil thus block the air flow to the fridge. If you seen any ice build up in freezer or refrigerator that could be the problem. If that is the case, then you need to have the defrost circuit troubleshot, typical failures are the heater itself or the defrost timer if you have an older model. Hope this helps you.

My GE fridgerator will not make ice and will not

Open the door and depress the door/light switch,the evaporator fan motor should run.If it doesn't make sure the thermostat is set cold enough.If it is,you could have a bad defrost timer.they are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace.Every day the compressor and evap,motor shut down for @ 10 min and the heaters are turned on to defrost the evaporator to prevent ice buildup.You could have a compressor problem also but lets hope not.

LG ice maker only dispenses crushed ice not whole cubes

Very problematic issue with this model .Try unplugging and plugging the fridgerator which resets the board.The board is located on top under a removeable panel where the power cord enters....there is a reset/diagnostic button on the board itself.Contact for any possible warranty and complain like crazy to avoid spending $300 on this board which can be purchased from who is a factory authorized parts provider.Keeping that ice maker going will make you pull your hair out which is unfortuante for such a stylish and expensive fridge.good luck

Kenmore fridgerator is leaking water in the bottom 2001

the drain tube above &be hind ceiling has drain cup on older fridge this gets stopped up with gunk and stuff. held on back wall by 2 screws. This is a top freezer Your describing other wise the drain tube is in the freezer and you'd have ice in the floor of the fridge. If your fridge doesn't have it in the top back of the fridge compartment it is entirely in the upper freezer compartment and is still stopped up probably w ice and gunk. Defrost w hair dryer and while you can see the drain pan and hole pour in a cup of water if it goes down your good other wise blow out the drain with compressed air and retry the water. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.
