SOURCE: Admiral HMG 62163 water leaking internally & freezing in lower basket

good attempt, its actually a clogged drain thats backing up and your drain water is not able to leave refrig so it falls to bottom of freezer floor and eventually out the door. romve the items from the freezer and take the lower back wall off form inside, directly under the evaporator under all that ice there is a drain hole, youll need to clear that hole of iec( pouring boiling water down until you get a free flow of water then you can reassemble uint problem solved

check the lever in the ice bin. if it is stuck in the up position it thinks the ice bin is full and will not make ice. Just wiggle it to the down position.

Every freezer have a drip collector beneath it. Some times it may be filled completely with water thus causing an overflow. Else, the opening to the collector is being blocked by some ice. Also this problem can happen with aging of the fridge. There is nothing you can do in particular in this case.

You can easily test your defrost heater with an ohm meter. And most of the time you can test it in the unit. Unplug defrost heater leads on both ends, and then put one lead of the ohm meter on one end and the other lead on the other end. The meter will show you whether you have an open circuit or not. If it is open, then you will have to replace it.

Ohm meters are very cheap under $20, and could save you money if the defrost heater is good. It is also a very good item to have for testing electrical problems in the house or car.

yes compressor runs and shuts off every 8 - 10 hours for a half hour for defrost system mode. but ur hot left side may be a sign of issues needing to be addressed>


FRIDGE COILS or door walls SEEM VERY HOT:

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly but shut off with each defrost cycle.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

My freezer has ice and fridge does not cool. Admiral signature model HMG 19802. Any ideas


Sounds like you have a defrost problem. First thing check if you fan motor in the freezer is running. You can open the freezer door and press in the door switch and listen to the fan motor. if fan motor is running, you have a problem in the defrost system. if not, you have a bad door switch or fan motor. (not very common)
to test defrost system: Locate defrost timer (under front kick plate) and rotate slowly until you hear a click.After a few minutes you will start hearing crackling sound and see water flowing down the drain line.
if defrost is working, replace the defrost timer. if not, you either have a bad defrost heater or def. thermostat. best think is to replace both.
for more accurate instructions, we need more detailed description of problem

Assuming your evaporator is completely frozen, I would defrost the coils with a hair dryer, the clip off the defrost thermostat on top of the evaporator coils. Strip and short the wires together, then check if defrost works, if so, order a new one .

Hello WIntersno,

I understand that your refrigerator is sparking behind the freezer drawer and you would like to know if this is a fire hazard. In my opinion it would be a fire hazard as plastic and rubber is flammable and the repairman is not true in saying that this is normal. A refrigerator should never spark as this is also an electrical hazard. I would suggest having another repaid man come out and fix the problem or purchase a new box.
