My freezer is very cold but not freezing water into ice. The door was only partially closed because a towel was in the way but after fixing that it has been 6 hours and it's still not freezing. The...


That really cause the freezer not to freeze water because of that towel. Since you already remove the obstruction, just observe it and it will gonna freeze the water. Be sure that the door gasket magnet has tightly closed freezer door and no cold air is going outside. If there is, again it will takes longer to freeze water into ice.
Just observe and it will gonna go back to normal operation.
Good luck to you.

My freezers compressor is getting very hot and the freezer is not freezing


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

A hot compressor and freezer not working properly can be a few things.

1. The Compressor may not be running at full speed due to a dragging rotor or a bad run capacitor. Additionally a weak thermal overload / Klixon and or PTC relay on the compressor itsdel can cause the same symptom.

2. The Evaporator is clogged with ice due to a defrosting problem causing poor airflow through the evaporator coils and lower freezer temps.

Here is what I recommend you do first off.

A. Unplug the unit for about 30 minutes to allow the compressor to cool down. At the end of that 30 minutes just as you plug in the unit have someone listen to make sure the compressor starts and runs properly. If it runs properly at that point it can still be any of the items described in paragraph 1. above.
1) Montor the temps after the 30 min off period for 24 hours. If it is normal fine. If not see next paragraph.

B. Poor freezer temp condition persists perform a MANUAL defrosting:

Again unplug the unit. Remove the contents of freezer and place a fan blowing into the freezer section for a little 2 hours. This will make a water mess so be prepaired. After the 2 hours plug the unit back in and reload the freezer contents. 4 - 6 hours later check your freezer tremos to see if they have returned to normal. If the temps are normal your unit has a problem with the defrost cycle and will require further service to correct the defrosting problem.

There is a bit more but the above is a good start. If you stillhave the problem reply here and we can go into the defrost circuit or compressor troubleshooting procedures.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Roper RT21LMXKQ00 Freezer wont freeze


The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Fridge condensation - freezer thawing


OK now I'm wondering are theses numbers your getting 4 -9 the actual temps of the refrigerator and the freezer? and do they feel this cold and correct to you? I know the refrigerator side shouldn't be below 34 or so and definitely not below 32. If this is correct and the numbers are not settings but temps. (Now if you have a touch pad its electronic. If it has knobs it has a separate defrost and thermostat and are electro-mechanical)
If electronic Your control board and possibly defrost control are out.
It would more likely be the sensors going to the board(s) It will both sensors have the possibility of causing your problem. 1 will control the run of the compressor (and this one could and probably is connected to the inside coil) and 1 will control the air damper tween the refdg and freezer compartments, and may turn on the inside fan operation too.

(this would be my first suspect if these are degrees numbers). Look at the thermostat control see if it is attached to the indoor coil (usually the tube leavign the indoor section. If its not attached its not sensing the coil temp and when goes into defrost wala its not senmsing temps like its designed to do. Look for a broken clip or possible a plastic wire tie that holds this sensor in place.

Please get back to me with what you see - find on this look up.

Kenmore fridge stopped cooling


sounds like its freezing up on you. check the drain outlet and make sure that its clear. also i would replace the defrost timer on this unit because its suppose to bring on the heaterfs to melyt the ice so thaat yoiu don't have to. they are around 30 mdollars at the appliancew repair store and all you need is the model number and serial number for the uit. after you get it it's either on the very top of the refrigerator section or in the very back. It has 4 wires going to it. good luck.

Frigidaire- Freezer side is defrosting


if door not sealing then air gets in and the moisture in the air freezes on the evaporator and blocks air flow. fault may well cure itself after a few days assuming the door is now sealing ok

Freezer works fine...refrigerator section


Have you noticed more frost in the freezer than usual? It sounds like you may have moisture building up and freezing around evaporator fan. The fan blade hitting ice will cause the buzzing until it stops it completely or the evaporator clogs with frost and blocks airflow. If you have frost on food in freezer, check the door seals and make sure nothing is keeping doors from closing completely if you release them about 6" from cabinet.
