Had fridge a week and it keeps building up frost on the inside of the fridge at the back of it and thermostat is only on 2! Is this normal? I have already defrosted it once


if it is an old fridge , I suspect that the door seals are not in good condition allowing moist room air into the compartment to freeze on the wall
if it is new and under warranty call for a warranty check

My side by side 23.6 cu. ft. no frost refrigerator is not freezing and the refrigerator is not getting cold enough. There's frost on the back wall inside freezer. It's a GE TFX24VR. What can I


usually that means your fridge thermostat is being blocked by items in your fridge, telling the cooling system to shut down. If your fridge and freezer are packed, the fridge might protect itself by shutting down the cooling system. Happened to us last Thanksgiving.

Miela fridge freezer freezes food in the fridge


Most likely reason is fridge evaporator sensor faulty. The sensor is screwed to the back wall of the fridge behind bracket next to light and has a green band near the end . The sensor come as a repair kit (part no. 7323301). Just follow instructions in the packet.It is quite straight forward

Frost and freezing in the fridge


its warm damp air getting into the fridge causing the frosting if it builds up to much the fridge will find it hard to keep things coold down and you will need to "de-frost" it,,to do this rap all your food up in a blanket to keep it cool them switch off the fridge and put a tub of boiling water in side it leave the door open the frost will soon fall away,,wip out the fridge with "by carb" and switch it back on for an hour or so before you put your cold food back in it

Fridge is freezing food


I have had the same issue with thick frost/ice at the back of my Fridge and almost called an engineer and considered replacing it.. BUT you don't want to so that: Do this:

1. Take freezer draws out and empty fridge so it is lighter and easier to move Fridge Freezer out
2. Chuck some warm soapy water down the drainage hole in back of fridge to ensure it is not blocked
3. Pull the plug. Leave it off for 5-10 mins.
4. Plug it in, reload her
5. Next morning.. perfect all back to normal

I think the unplugging just resets the thermostat and gets your machine back to life.

Fridge side not working freezer frost on back at first now not freezing hardly at all


If you still have the frost build up on the back wall of the freezer, your problem is in the defrost circuit. You'll find a bad heater, terminator or control.

Also verify operation of the evaporator (freezer) fan.
