Is my defrost timer broken or my thermostat? The freezer was holding -30 temp but now is at +30.

Is the compressor running? If not - the timer could be stuck in defrost mode. If it is ruinning, then the freezer coil should be cold. If it is choked with frost & ice - then the defrost heater isn't getting powered (bad timer or defrost terminator - or is getting powered but has burned out.

You should allow the ice and frost to melt completely before turning back on again. Typically ice and frost don't build up so bad in a few days time to cause the temperature rise you're describing If getting cold - the compressor and refrigerant is likely OK, if not the defrost circuit is suspect. If compressor running but not getting cold - a refrigerant leak / charge level may be causing the problem.

Ice is melting in the ice container.

Step 1:

You could have one of several problems with this unit. Do you have heavy frost on the back wall of the freezer? If you do then you have a defrost problem. You might need to replace the defrost t-stat on the evaporator.

Step 2:

If that is not the problem then you might have a dirty condenser. Check the dividing wall between the refrigerator and freezer, is it hot? If so, clean your condenser and make sure the fan in the back is running.

Step 3:

If that is not the problem then you might have a water supply issue. Are the ice cubes hollow? It might be just a water filter that needs to be replaced. Your ice maker might be dripping water as well, if you see ice cycles hanging from the ice maker then the ice maker needs to be replaced.

Step 4:

The worst would be a freon leak... To check this remove the evaporator cover in the freezer and look at your frost pattern on the evaporator.
Good frost:

That is a normal frost pattern on an evaporator and everything is good.

Bad frost:

That shows a freon leak and you would need to call a qualified professional to complete this repair. This can get expensive so think if it might just be better to replace the unit.

Good Luck!

Heavy frost accumulates just inside freezer door (and on adjacent foods) -- next to refrigerator door

Check your freezer door seal especially where the frost is the heaviest. Also check and make sure that you ice shoot for the thru the door ice is closing.

Defrost not working heavy ice build up around coils


Frost is a natural occurrence on the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. To prevent frost buildup, a self-defrosting refrigerator warms the coils using a defrost heater several times each day to melt away the frost. This frost melts into water and flows out of the compartment through the drain. If any part of the defrost system is not working properly, the result can be heavy frost buildup that may affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator.

The defrost timer is a mechanism that tells the defroster how long to run to melt the frost. The limit switch measures the temperature in the freezer and helps to maintain it, while the heater is the key element that melts the frost. Any one of these components could need replacement at a given time, which will result in this over-frosting.

Heavy Frost in the freezer

There are a few reasons for frost building up inside the freezer compartment. Refrigerators work like dehumidifiers collecting the moisture in the air inside and defrost is supposed to remove the moisture while defrost through a drain and then to the defrost condensate pan below the refrigerator. Ever notice how ice in freezer over time the ice cubes become smaller? Or food that is not sealed dries out. You either have one of three problems. Defrost drain blocked behind the rear wall in back of freezer, air leaking into freezer through the door seal and in your case the drawer seal and finally water possibly leaking into freezer from Ice Maker, Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Samsung RS253BAVQ freezer Keeps defrosting, and wont dump ice

One posibility is that it is not defrosting a all and that the ice is building up on the evaporator coil behind the rear cover inside the freezer. This condition will block the flow of cold air. Remove the back panel to see what your have. Either no ice , light frost, partial icing or heavy icing blocking the fins. Complete light frosting is normal.

Inside the refrigerator, the back of it ices up, the back of the top shelf and the coils behind the vegetable bins.

Make sure the vent from the freezer is set to a warmer temperature. You can also check the freezer to see if you see heavy frost. If no frost then try to adjust the vent

Heavy Frost in Freezer

You have an air leak coming from the light switch in the ceiling of the freezer.  You will need to call LG for resolution on this problem.  I believe there is a fix for this problem.
