My GE Adora side by side refrig. has stopped making ice and I am having a hard time regulating the settings on it. The freezer is too cold and the refrig. section isn't cold enough. I also have noticed...


Defroster circuit/timer has failed.

The water line to the icemaker has probably frozen,so no ice. The cooling coils are in the freezer, and the cold air moves to the fridge via vents and circulation fan.

When it all ices up, no air gets to fridge, fridge gets warm.

Many models have a mechanical defroster timer located under the lower front kick panel. Manually rotate the timer until you hear the compressor stop.

Defroster heater then should come on and you hear scorch/hiss/gurgle of defrost sounds. If the timer is working, the fridge should come back on after about a half hour or so.

Sometimes timer fails, sometimes heater element fails. There is also a defrost thermostat that's part of the heater assembly.

Danby Refrig DFFC1WDB, two years old, in my vacation home that I visit one weekend a month. Lights flashing, power cycled (after req'd 5 mins). Discovered coils were packed with ice. See below: 1.) Danby Refrigerator DFFC1WDB, about two years old, in my vacation home that I visit one weekend a month 2.) Never defrosted it manually before (i.e. turned off and left to defrost) 3.) For some time I noticed the light inside the fridge was flashing, but the refrigerator seemed to be cooling okay and the manual says nothing about what the flashing light means. I attributed it to a power failure and the flashing stops once the unit is unplugged and plugged back in (power cycled) after 5 minutes or so. 4.) This visit I noticed the flashing lights again and that the freezer was cold (it was heavily loaded) but fridge was barely cool. I power cycled the fridge (allowing 5 minutes) and the flashing stopped but I was concerned about the issue and threw out some food. 5.) I unplugged the unit again and removed everything from the freezer. I noticed a thick coating of ice on the freezer back wall. I used a hair dryer to melt this coating of ice and then realized that the coils behind this wall must be covered in ice. I removed the back wall exposing the coils and discovered that I was correct: The coils were completely covered/packed with ice, so I greatly sped up the melting process with the hair dryer. After all, I had food sitting in coolers with ice and wanted to return it to the freezer and fridge asap. 6.) Once all the ice was gone I left the freezer open for a while for the coils and assembly to cool (since I had used a hair dryer to melt away the ice pack) 7.) I set the freezer and fridge to their coldest settings and plugged it back in. The lights do not flash when I plugged it back in. The compressor (I assume) ran for a while (the fan in the freezer ran also), and during this time I heard the unit lightly buzzing (with life), and then it stopped. But it seemed to have quite a way to go when it stopped and the freezer and fridge were not nearly cold enough at that point. I surmised that it might be entering one of its periodic defrosting periods, but after quite a while of waiting it still hadn't started running again so I power cycled the unit again and again the compressor/fan ran for a while and then stopped. It just doesn't seem to be starting on its own unless I power cycle it (waiting the required 5 minutes before plugging it back in.) At this point I don't have confidence that it is cooling well enough to keep my food fresh (and frozen). 8.) What do you think could be wrong? It certainly seems reasonable that the part/system responsible for periodically defrosting the coils may have failed. But since the unit is completely defrosted now, why does the unit only run for a short time after unplugging/replugging and never run again?
