Hi from The Gasket Guy, Inc.

I am Jeff Weisman and I can have someone come to you and give you a free estimate on the repair/replacement of your door heater. The price range for replacement (most likely solution) is from $189 to $299 depending on size and type of freezer. Amerikooler is usually toward the lower end of the price range, providing it is a standard freezer (-5 deg - +10) with an opening of less than 36X78.

Call me immediately at 561-889-3600 and I will have your problem solved in a "jiffy".

I have a problem with my s75438dt,the fridge as stopped working


If defrost heaters in freezer stop operating during defrost cycle, ice builds up around coils and blocks cool air from being blown to refrigerator side. If ice you need to defrost with heat and replace heaters. Remove rear freezer wall and look for solid ice covering coils. Also push freezer door switch closed while keeping door open and determine if fan is working.

Freezer works but fridge remains warm.


The same fan that circulates air in the freezer also blows air in to the fridge. If you open the freezer door and hold the door switch closed you should hear the fan running. If not you have a failed motor or motor control. Look at the back wall of the freezer section and see if there is a heavy frost build up. If so. you have a defrost system problem. Please post back with what you find and with the complete model number and I will try to walk you through the steps of checking everything.
Thanks/Mike

My lfx25960sb lg refridgerator won't defrost it builds ice on the coils the heater looks ok


Looks cannot always tell if there is a problem with the defrost heater or defrost thermostat. Your model uses the=> 5300JK1005D Defrost Heater Assembly and the=> 6615JB2005H Defrost Sensor Unplug before working on your fridge. Can you find an ohm meter and remove he rear panel in the back of the freezer? I can walk you through this if to lie. Also tellme what type of frost pattern you see once the rear panel inside the freezer is removed. Completely frosted over? Half or less frosted over? Clump or ball of ice where the small tube enters the large copper tube on the evaporator? Just ask questions on your post here on Fixya I am here to help, Thanks, John Tripp Appliance 911

The Refrigerator side is warm, and the freezer side is not making enough ice,and the ice is not solid


Possibly the defrost heater could be faulty or the defrost thermostat or defrost thermistor (sometimes called D-Sensors I believe). If you turn off the fridge and let it defrost itself for 12 hours and then start it again, it may work fine for a week or two (or may even be totally fine in case you left the fridge or freezer door open by accident).

The freezer is working but the fridge is not. We unplugged and defrosted it for 24 hr and it was fine for 1 week and now it's doing it again.


Assuming that the fan in the freezer is working, then your auto defrost system has failed- either the timer or the defrost heater assembly(heater and defrost thermostat)

Frost inside freezer door


there is a small electric heater along the door gasket where you see the frost building up, this heater has apparently stopped working. this will also cause the door to pop open due to a poor seal. feel around where the door gasket contacts the refrigerator and it should feel a little warm. if not then a service company can replace those heaters. should not be too expensive.

It may well be the defrost control. They have a turn slot to advance them if the timer quits. You need a little aptitude to find this and check it. If you think you can do it let me know, and I will walk you through it.

Delfield Refrigerator/Freezer Condensation forming outside door seals


I would expect at the very least a heater circuit around the freezer door. Some of the commercial units also have sprung doors to keep the doors firmly shut which you could check by opening the doors. Door heater circuits are normally very reliable and it would be worth checking the voltage is getting to them, they are also a pain to change out. Hope this helps.
