Refrigerator acts like it's defrosting. Gets warm, ice melts, then gets cold again, for about 3 months. Except this last time. Fans working but neither side getting cold.

Why does The freezer side stays cold but the refrigerator side gets warm


Your problem is more than likely a defrost issue. There is ice building up in the freezer coils and when it gets blocked with ice the cold air cant blow into the fresh food section. When you shut it off the ice melts and it gets cold again for a few days. remove the freezer back panel and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. if they check OK then check the defrost timer. It is best to replace all three components at the same time. This way you will be starting out with new components rather than one failing then the other.

Sanyo side by side door fridge is not defrosting, what to do?


bonjour,
Trouble comes in 3's
If there is never any water in the drip pan under the refrigerator it is not defrosting and the evaporator drain line may be stopped up. Side by Side refrigerators cool the freezer first and send a small amount of cold air to the refrigerator side. To start defrost the defrost timer stops the compressor and all fans. Next it turns on the defrost heater. This melts the ice/frost off the freezer coils. The water drips down the drain line to the drain pan under the unit. If the defrost heater raises the temperature too high the defrost termination thermostat turns the heaters off. When the defrost timer finishes it turns off the heaters and turns the compressor and fans back on. If the drain line clogs with food the water does not drain out and when the compressor starts again the water freezes. If this keeps happening the ice gets higher and bigger until it clogs the coils and the freezer does not get cold. If the defrost termination thermostat turns off the defrost heaters too soon all the frost is not melted from the coils. And the coils soon clog and the freezer gets too warm. No defrost usually means either a bad defrost timer, a clogged drain line, a bad defrost termination thermostat or some combination of the three.
If the drain line is not stopped up you can try this.
Remove all food from freezer and refrigerator, open the doors and unplug the cord. Wait 30 hours for all the frost to melt.
Keep the doors open and the cord unplugged the whole time. Empty the drain pan to keep it from over flowing. After 30 hours plug it back in and wait for 1/2 cup of water to turn to ice in the freezer. Then you can put the food back in. The problem can return if the unit is not defrosting. Or you can call a service technician.

Warm fridge cold freezer


Hi,advance thermostat setting, to get colder , it's possible you got defrost problem, is there excessive ice building inside back of freezer? to determine if you have a defrost problem, unplug ref. for about an hour,let it defrost, let all ice melt away, it's better to remove your produce, keep doors open to speed up defrosting, after defrosting and cleaning plug back your ref, and let it work for another hour, and check result, if it's o/k, put back your produce, let me know, during hot summer months, regular use (opening) of ref, could cause excessive ice build-up evap. if after defrosting and cleaning ref. work good for 3 to 4 days, but start doing the same thing, let me know, it means you got a defrost problem. also check your thermostat, but first defrost and clean it, that could just be your problem. good luck.

Amana refrigerator only not working


Model # important.
You have a failure of the defrost system. There are 3 components not counting wire and connectors. Most likely it is not the heater that leaves the defrost timer then the defrost thermostat. My guess is that the defrost thermostat is bad (just a guess for now) Need more info to help you more. If you know what and where the defrost timer is then advance it clockwise till you hear a distinct click, not the little clocks you hear during turning it, a distinct click. If after about 10 minutes you notice the frost down low on the freezer rear interior wall melting. Replace the Timer it is bad.
If this makes no difference then I am betting you have a bad defrost thermostat and it is located on the top right part of the freezer cooling coil behind the rear interior wall of the freezer behind the frost.
