Freezer and drain freezing up


you either have a blocked drain in the freezer or a bad, failing defrost element, timer.

If you have a manual for you fridge you can locate the place to check for blockage in the drainline. I you dont have a manual you can check online at searspartdirect and locate one.

The heating element for the defroster is located right beneath the freezer coils so you need to take the inner panels off the inside of the freezer to get to those.

You can replace the heating element and timer fairly easily. You should be able to buy both of them for around 90-100 bucks if necessary. But try clearing the draining first. You can test the line by defrosting the fridge and pouring some water into the drain and see how quickly it goes into the drainpan below the fridge.

Good luck and be careful.

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.

Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
