I do not believe the problem is the fan. sounds like the frig. is low on Freon this is what will cause the ice build up. you need to find the leak, you can do this by spraying soapy water on coil tubes & watch for bubbles. repair leak & recharge.

Beeps like door is open, not cooling


Check for frozen evaporator coil resulting from a failure in the defrost system or a failed evaporator or condenser fan motor.

One possible senerio that could cause this is the coils are frozen up. If coils are frozen, no air can blow through the coils into either the freezer or refer section. This is caused bya failure of the defrost timer. (Don't know where it's located on yours but on an old one I owned, it was under the unit (accessible by removing a front cover) at the front. If the timer (or defrost coils) are not working, frost continues to build until te coil is frozen solid. This would oresent itself as a slow failure to cool, that is, each day (over 3-4 days) the refer section will get warmer.

Samsung "Cool-n-cool" fridge freezer defrosting food


Is it "defrosting" the food or unable to keep it frozen? Probably unable to keep frozen. Many possible problems. 1. Defrost element bad and evaporator coil is iced over, or 2. Failed evaporator fan inside freezer, or 3. Low freon causing iced up evaporator coil....Do you see any ice build up on the back wall of freezer? Do you hear the freezer fan running or not? Take a look and get back to me.

Why is it not cooling properly?


You may have a faulty relay on the compressor. A 3 in one replacement will likely resolve this issue unless you have a sealed system leak.

the evaporator coil is frozen over and cant release cold air due to this,defrost the unit remove rear panel inside freezer and troubleshoot the defrost heater and thermostat and also make sure the fan near this coil is running, on the evaporator coil as,you cant blow cold air thru a coil covered by ice

The cooled air is coming out at a very weak rate. The ac unit outside is blowing out cool air when the neighbor's is blowing out warm air. The house is just not getting cool. AC has been on for 4 days...


Turn off your A/C and put your fan switch in ON or FAN. Run the fan only for approx 3 hours. Check your air filter and clean/replace as necessary. Also check your evaporator coil and clean if necessary. It is possible that your evaporator coil is frozen up from a dirty filter or coil. If it continues to be a problem, you probably have a refrigerant problem which will require a certified service technician to address. Try taking care of the filter and coil first. :-)

Dometic Quick Cool compressor freezing and evaporator coil


Could be low. First check air filter, air flow, and evap coil to see if it has restricted airflow. If all seems well, its probably low. The specs will tell you what type and how much refigerant. To access system, you will need a gauge/manifold set, refrigerant, and a piercing or line tap valve for the low pressure side of the system. Of course, first, you need to locate and repair the refrigerant leak.

Not cooling frozen coil


A " Frozen A Coil "in the Furnace is a good sign that, You are LOW on Freon.

The Chemical Freon Goes from a Liquid to a gas state to do its Job properly.
When you are low, the Chemical does not go into the Evaporator as a liquid as it should.

A proper charge is Critical for the chemical to work properly.

You are going to have to increase the amount of heat absorbed by the evaporator coil on the indoor section of your system. First change the filter. Second turn the power off to the outdoor section and leave the indoor fan running until all the ice on the evaporator coil has thawed this could take a few hours. Third you need to verify that you are getting adequate airflow across the indoor evaporator coil and the outdoor condenser coil both fans should be spinning at full speed and airflow should be unobstructed by dirty coil fins or debris Hopefully after you've done this you will have cold air blowing inside and the larger of the two lines entering the unit outside will be cool to the touch but not frozen or even frosted regardless of run time and the small one should be the slightly warm but not hot. If the larger line continues to freeze then it could indicate a number of problems but essentially your condensers cooling capacity is outrunning your evaporator coils ability to absorb heat from air stream circulating in your home.Hope it works out for you GL!
