Freezer freezes but at some point thaws and then cools again. So everything is melting then freezing again; ice cubes melt and drip then refreeze.


The auto defrost timer may be broken. The freezer is going for a too long time in the heat cycle. Also ice can be stuck behind the cooling circuit and the cold air is not circulating well. Check if water is going in the evaporating pan at the bottom of the fridge. It should have a little water everyday.

My freezer is icing over and thawing food somewhat then refreezing


If the self defrosting circuit is not working properly the freezer will ice up and internal temps will go up and thaw food. U indicate that it refreezes so whst could be the problem is the timer that controls the frequency and timing of the defrost cycle.

Water freezing in bottom of freezer. freezer is 10 years old.


The defrost drain outlet is stopped up and freezing over.
Remove the bottom basket.
Turn the freezer off.
Look in the center of the freezer just below the cooling coils in the bottom of the freezer.
You will see a water drain trough.
It will be full of ice.
Use a hair dryer to thaw the ice and remove it.
The drain will become exposed.
It must be thawed also,so that you can pour water through it and the water goes all the way to the drain pan underneath.

Freezer thaws and refreezes daily


Hi,
The would be a problem with the defrost sticking and staying on too long...change the defrost timer/control board out....
the defrost cycle is making the freezer warm and then it goes off and the freezer refreezes...

most times it fails the other way and does not work at all but sometimes this happens...

Freezer thaws then refreezes


I was going to suggest that maybe it is a self defrost issue not shutting off when it should but sine you mentioned this knob, it suggests a thermostat out of calibration - I can rule out circuit problems since you can manually turn on compressor by turning the knob to a cooler position - you will need to have it serviced and change the thermostat which is not cycling whne it's supposed to.

ALSO - do not refreeze foods in your freezer that have thawed ! Throw them away !!! Normal freezer temps should not be warmer than 10F, the normal temps are 0F, and optimal recommended temp -10F (for hard ice cream) and to allow better recovery in case of power failures.

Refrigerator section no warmer tan 40F.....optimal recommended 34F.
