SOURCE: Hotpoint Ice diamond fridge freezer both green & red lights on.?

bulmer...it takes about two days to fully defrost these units unless you take the freezer section cover off and use a heat source. If you do...be sure to protect yourself against water and electricity mixing....not healthy. See below for another note.

clean the condenser coils below the unit.

check for the amount of gas in the unit. It must be off for half an hour. Remove the back fiber panel. The big thing is the compressor. Clean off the largest pipe coming out of it. Plug the unit in...watch out for the fan! The pipe should frost up and then clear off or stay wet after about 5 minutes. It should not be frosty. If it is, you need refrigerant.

Note: If you do remove the inside freezer panel and defrost, you can see how much refrigerant you have in your unit. Start the unit. Wait 5 minutes and observe the coils. They should be evenly frosted end to end. If approximately so, you're good. If not, you're low on gas.

SOURCE: build up of ice in

If it's not a self defrosting model, you just have to unplug it, and use a hairdryer to speed up the melting process. Get the sponges and buckets ready! If it is a frost free model that isn't defrosting, it would probably cost too much to fix. countrycurt0

SOURCE: kenmore freeze on the bottom.. model 596-72219200

just called in a sears technician 150 dollar bill that was an easy fix. he says my bottom freezer kenmore fridge with warm fridge problem was due to the pathway being blocked by ice and garbage which is common with these fridges. he took off cover from the fridge bottom and poured boiling water down to the freezer. try that before you replace any parts or call in a tech. next time im getting a top freezer because the blower is on the top not in the middle with the bottom freezers and thus more problem prone.

SOURCE: Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer

Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

Why freezer doesnt turn on


If it is a frost free model, the defrost timer could be stalled in defrost. Other than that the thermostat could be the problem.

GE UPRIGHT FREEZER MODEL # FUM21DTARWH top two shelves frosting badly door defrosting


The first thing you want to do is open the freezer and see if the fan inside there is running. The reason is the freezer cools the refrigerator side by circulating air from the freezer. If the fan is running then your problem is one or more parts of the defrost system is malfunctioned and in return your problem arises. There are three parts to the system, the defrost timer or in some cases control board, defrost thermostat also known as a bi-metal, and the defrost heater. The defrost system is set up to operate as so. The defrost timer or control board will turn the machine off, in some cases every 8 hours, some 12. During this time period the defrost heaters, located behind the freezer wall and rest underneath the evaporator, yet wires to them run up the side of it, are energized and emit heat that raises upward to melt the ice that has formed on the evaporator coils. The bi-metal or defrost thermostat is at the top of the evaporator. When the heat from the heater starts to reach the bi-metal, it breaks the circuit turning the heater off. The whole purpose of this is because the freezer cool the refridgerator side by drawing air across the coils and blowing to the other side via the evap fan motor. In my opinion, if you change one part of the defrost system change them all because usually when one part fails another will follow, so save yourself the time and the food loss, the cost difference is minute.

Freezer is cold but it is not freezing foods.


When it comes to refrigerators I always have a most likely to least likely formula to try to solve the reason of why the freezer or fresh food compartment is or is not cooling properly. So knowing that the cold air comes most times from the freezer compartment I would look to see if the fan inside that compartment may just be slowing down because it is possible there is frost building behind the freezer wall due to most likely defrost not taking place and creating a huge block of snow and ice blocking air circulation.. Ice will show on the outside wall of freezer also if possibly the defrost heater is burned out. There are so great testing tutoral'son the following links! So now having your model number that most people don't think about I will look to see just what type of defrost system your model has=> ABB1927DE EVAPORATOR AREA and Rollers location 16 in photo. That part is your models=> 67002135 Defrost Heater

I have a frigidaire upright frige freezer model no FPE526VWE the the top half works i.e freezes water but not the bottom half?


If you would like a challenge and like to check a few things yourself we most likely can get this problem. This will require unplugging and removing the back panel in the freezer so we can get a good look at what is taking place. For example, defrost not working, fan motor defective in freezer or below refrigerator. In the fresh food section you have a defrost timer that is located inside the controls panel in top and rear of the compartment. If you would like my assistance and feel comfortable working with me this could save you an expensive service call for something simple, Just let me know, Sea breeze

I have a Lec upright freezer which is working normally, apart from water on top of the freezer. I dry it and then a few hours later it is wet again. The freezer is located in a utility room. Any help...


Humidity level is the cause of the condensation on the freezer. Try ventilating the utility room in some way with fresh air to lower the level of humidity.
